When dining, check the webpage the day before. Read the GF dining tips to get a sense of questions to ask. Print out the gluten free menu and plan to take it with you. Call the manager (not during peak times) and tell him/her you will be dining gluten free. Ask what precautions they will take in the kitchen for the gluten free customer. Get a sense of how knowledgeable you think they may be. If in doubt, do not give them your business.
