Gluten-Free Dining

Wilmington, North Carolina 

Remember it is possible that ingredient changes and/or substitutions may occur due to the differences in regional suppliers, recipe revisions, prep techniques and even new chefs/employees. It is important that you not only call ahead to make sure they can handle your allergies but also consult with the restaurant manager prior to placing an order to ensure that you have the most accurate and current information. Also remember to ask about cross contamination, shared fryers & works spaces etc., as many restaurants that have gluten-free/allergy dining guides do not have an exclusive gluten-free station and will not guarantee that there will be no cross contamination. Check, double check and check again. Don't worry about being a pain in the restaurant's butt, it's better to be safe than sorry. Trust me, I've learned the hard way.

  2. I am really pleased to post my comment on this blog .I love your blog by the way, I am gonna have to add you to my list of watched blogs!

  3. If you guys do not put bdobos on in Wilmington I believe it is at university commons across from kickback jacks. The food is amazing & it is all you can eat & I am also about 100 percent sure all of the menu is gluten free! Seriously forget about any place else when it comes to gluten free & eating healthy!

    1. Bdobo is NOT gluten free. While they do have some gluten free ingredients and sauce choices, not all of them are gluten free. There also is the matter of cross contamination as everything is cooked on the same griddle.

  4. Check out Sealevel City Gourmet, 1015 S Kerr Ave. It is fantastic, gluten-free and so much more.
