Dining Guide (Specific to San Diego, CA but many listings are of nationwide chains)

We at Gluten Free Consultants have complied this list (primarily of San Diego area restaurants) of dining establishments that genuinely understand what gluten free means not simply if you hunt long enough you will find an item or two you can enjoy.

Several of these restaurants have worked with us to create their menu and become educated on offering gluten free items. If you would like to contribute to our list please let us know. Of course we cannot guarantee your experience and we always encourage you to take control of your dining, but we feel confident about these recommendations. Be sure to email us if you would like a gluten free dining card.
