10 Best Places in Shreveport-Bossier to Eat a Gluten-Free Meal
My wife, the Lady Stifler, is sensitive to gluten products. That means we have to be careful where we go to eat. Here are our favorite gluten-free and gluten-friendly restaurants in Shreveport and Bossier City.
In case you didn’t know, gluten is in anything that has wheat, barley, rye and soy (because of cross contamination occurring in wheat fields) in it.
This list below is in alphabetical order, not in order of our love of the place.
Pancakes at Another Broken Egg Cafe
If you're hankering for some breakfast, you could just get bacon and eggs. But if you're gluten free, you might want some soft, flaky pancakes instead.
Well, Another Broken Egg Cafe has them. They are amazing and the size of your head; the perfect combination.
Cupcakes at Buttercups Cupcakes
Buttercups has not one, but two options of gluten-free cupcakes on a daily basis. The peanut butter & jelly and maple bacon cupcakes are both are out of this world, but if salted caramel is your thing you can special order a dozen of those bad boys (or whatever your favorite flavor is) to eat at your leisure.
Steaks at Chili's
If you want to go to Chili's, ask for a gluten-free menu before you are taken to your table. There are a lot of options to pick from.
Gluten-Free Pizza from Domino's Pizza
There's something satisfying about ordering a pizza on the Internet, and that's exactly what you do with Domino's Pizza.
The gluten-free crust is OK -- very pre-packaged -- but you can't beat home delivery.
Frozen Treats from Happy Bellys
While there's no mistaking the fact that custard and Italian Ice are in fact gluten-free, it's something you may not often think about. My wife loves to get the blue blast with custard. I personally go for the mango.
Pasta from Macaroni Grill
Macaroni Grill has gluten-free rotini noodles! Add your favorite sauce, and boom -- dinner is served. But a word to the wise: the moment you see your waiter, say "Hello Marion, I'm going to have gluten-free pasta if the kitchen can go ahead and get that started."
(Gluten-free pasta takes a while to cook, so order a bottle of wine, relax, talk and try to not look at the other tables eating that bread!)
Salad from Nicky's Mexican Resturant
I loooove me some Nicky's. My wife does, too. Most enchiladas have corn tortillas and are relatively safe. However, Lady Stifler's favorite gluten-free dish is the chef salad al carbon. It's a HUGE salad with your choice of fajita beef or chicken.
It's actually a pretty healthy choice...if you don't eat the salad dressing, cheese, guacamole or sour cream.
Steaks from Outback Steak House
Ask the hostess for a gluten-free menu and read over all the options. There may be no rules at Outback, but there is steak. Amazing, gluten-free steaks.
Pizza from Rotolo's
Oh man, Rorolo's pizza is amazing. I gladly split a gluten-free pizza with my wife when we order from Rotolo's. The problem with gluten-free breads is they are very dense. Rotolo's is light.
Honestly, Rotolo's has become one of my favorite pizza spots in the SBC.
Pizza from Stocky's Pizza
If you haven't picked up on it yet, the wife and I love pizza. And Stocky's is my other favorite pizza place. The crust is amazing. I don't know what supernatural magic they do, but I love me some Stocky's Pizza.
The beautiful thing is that this Haughton pizzeria has gluten-free pizza too, and it tastes just like a normal pizza.
