Gluten-Free Friendly Restaurants in KC

An earlier notice on this website announced plans to dissolve Chapter 4 at the end of 2013. We are happy to report that dissolution has been averted and the chapter will continue to serve the celiac community as it has for the past 30 years. As always, everyone who seeks information or help in learning and practicing the gluten-free diet and lifestyle is invited to participate in the chapter and its programs.

Updated 5–6-13

The following is an alphabetical list of local restaurants with gluten-free menus and accommodations and/or restaurants that have successfully served celiacs with no adverse reactions that we are aware of.  It is the responsibility of every consumer to verify each restaurant’s ability to safely accommodate his/her gluten-free diet and to make his/her own decision whether to patronize the restaurant. Consumers should discuss their dietary restrictions with servers, chefs, and/or restaurant managers to verify safe dining.  Always specify that you must have gluten-free.  Remember that cross contamination is always a possibility.  CSA Chapter 4 does not recommend, endorse, or guarantee the safety of any establishment on the list. 

Many of these restaurants have gluten-free menus and/or gluten allergen information on their websites.  It is good practice to view the information on the websites before visiting the restaurants, because some restaurants’ gluten-free menu choices are rather limited.  In some cases, the consumer must click through a series of screens in the website to access the gluten-free information. 

Help Us Expand This List. When you find a restaurant in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area that has a gluten-free menu or can safely accommodate the gluten-free diet, please notify us so we can consider adding it to this list.  Similarly, please notify us if you are certain that you have had a gluten reaction after dining at one of the establishments on this list.   In either case, send the restaurant name and street address to:
