Atlanta Dining Out Gluten Free Restaurant Reveiws

Gluten Free Dining In Atlanta: 10 Must Try Restaurants

Gluten Free Dining In Atlanta: 10 Must Try Restaurants

When we first found out that my son was allergic to wheat, and that a gluten-free diet would be the best way to keep him safe, one of my main concerns was:


We live in the south. In Atlanta to be exact. The land of everything FRIED. But over the years, we’ve found more and more places for our gluten-free dining in Atlanta. We have eaten at all but one of these restaurants so I can honestly say. GO HERE!

Gluten Free Dining In Atlatna

Uncle Maddios

If you have been following this blog or me on Instagram for any amount of time, you know we LOVE Uncle Maddios Pizza. The gluten-free pizza crust here is wonderful, and they will add any topping you like.

Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery

When I need baked goods, one of my go to places to go is Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery in Roswell. Cupcakes, fresh bread, pies, cakes….you name it, they have it. And the pecan pie during the holidays is glorious!

Mary Mac’s Tea Room

I was so surprised when I learned that this Atlanta icon had a gluten-free menu! This landmark is all things southern and Atlanta. The gluten-free menu is extensive and will keep even the pickiest eater (read Pookah) satisfied.

Yeah Burger

Located in Virginia Highlands area, this great find that prides itself on local ingredients, organic produce, dairy products and grass-fed beef. So it makes total sense that they would have a great gluten free menu. You can get anything from hamburgers( obviously) to hot dogs on a gluten-free bun.

Egg Harbor Cafe

Looking for a great breakfast/brunch spot? We always are! Egg Harbor Cafe is the perfect spot to get gluten-free pancakes, cinnamon rolls, grits or sandwiches. And there is now a new location right on Peachtree.

Chick a Biddy

Located in Atlantic Station, I discovered this one by accident. But from Brunch offerings like the Almond pancakes to the Gluten Free Onions rings, this is a great little spot. And it has great outdoor space for people watching while you enjoy your food!

Ted’s Montana Grill

If you live in Atlanta I’m sure you’ve had one of Ted’s famous Bison Burgers. You can get those Bison Burgers (sans buns), the Prime Rib, the fries and a whole lot more on their wonderful gluten-free menu that satisfies even my picky little eater.


Expensive yes, but there is a gluten-free menu ( if you ask) AND the wait staff will ask the kitchen staff if they are unsure. Whenever we go to Houston’s, they go out of their way to accommodate us.

The Flying Biscuit

I had no idea they had gluten-free selections! There is no separate gluten free menu, but the gluten-free items are clearly marked.  From omelets to grits to ” moon dusted potatoes” my son eats worry free here. And so do we !


This last offering on my list is one that I keep hearing about, but haven’t been to yet! I looked at the menu and with Gluten free options like Crab Bisque, Southern Ceviche, and Georgia Coastal Shrimp, this spot is at the top of our to try out list! SOON!

And there you have it. My list of the best restaurants for gluten free dining in Atlanta!

Now get out there and eat!

    We had the flying biscuit for the first time for Mother’s Day….I was not impressed food was overpriced and it wasn’t good. I just ate the Uncle Pizza (what my kids call it) for the first time a month ago and loved their pizza best I have had in a while. I need to try out the rest of places soon.

    Serious side eye Kita! the biscuits with apple butter at flying biscuit are so yummy! LaShawn I have been to most of these restaurants and had no idea they had gluten free options. My sister in law and nieces have been gluten free for years so good to know for when they visit. I love Houston’s and Yeah burger! I do recommended Wisteria. The food is very good in a very quaint atmosphere.

    Have you tried Chinese food since there are more rice options?
    We went to Makan Atlanta - – and the owners said they get a lot of gluten-free customers.

    With our seafood allergy issues we have to make sure they don’t fry fish in the same grease as anything else. So we ask before we order.

      The problem with most Chinese places is that they use Soy sauce( which has wheat in it) in almost everything. Or things are breaded. PF Chang’s does have a gluten free menu, but Pookah is not into it. But I will have to check out Makan Atlanta! Thanks for the suggestion since we are always looking for more spots and my husband is Chinese food obsessed. LOL

    I know how crucial it is to find places your little can enjoy without the threat of an allergy attack! I’m glad you found some good places in the ATL to take him to and I will be referring to this list whenever I make there for the first time so you can take me there! hahaha

    Wow, I’m definitely bookmarking this one! I’ve considered exploring a gluten free diet but trying to figure out what options of food I can eat can be a challenge. But when I visit ATL, I will definitely have to check some of these out 🙂

    As a mom of a kid with food allergies, I know the feeling. There are lots of new gluten free resturant popping up these days. Hopefully, that catches on in Atlanta. Looks like you still get to enjoy some pretty good meals.

    God. Bless. You. I have tried to eat as gluten-free as possible since I cut just about all wheat out of my diet 3 years ago. I noticed that once I cut it out, I stopped being so tired all the time, I had less digestive issues, and my skin really started to clear up! When my mother gave us all this information about why wheat was so bad for you, it all made sense. The challenge has been finding gluten-free substitutes that don’t taste like…well…substitutes. All these places sound amazing. Any idea about whether they deliver or have storefronts in the DC area?

    I am pinning this and will have to visit these spots. When I had my gall bladder removed, the doctor recommended going gluten free or cutting it drastically. I have yet to listen and continue to have on and off gut issues!
    I might as well figure out what I like and where I like it from when it comes to gluten free dining.

    This list is amazing!! Most do not consider the gluten free community, it’s amazing to have a list of great places to visit that cater.

    I think this is a good list for those who prefer to have a gluten-free diet. I know that often times people with dietary restrictions have a hard time finding restaurants that are accommodating.

    This is a great round-up!! I’ll be heading to ATL this summer and am happy to find some options that won’t expand my waist (too much) lol.

    It’s nice to know that more and more restaurants are catering to the gluten-free diet, this way you’re still able to enjoy the foods you like. I’ll have to bookmark this list for later whenever I’m in the ATL visiting family and need to know good restaurants to try out. Thanks!

    We’ll be down in the A later on this month and it’s nice to have this list to give to the Mr. It’ll be nice to know that he and the kids will have a variety of safe places to eat during the day while I’m in my meetings! Thanks for sharing.

    I know there are a lot of GF options in the Atlanta area and I’m just wondering if you tried all of them before compiling the list or just more of the commercial chains offering GF? I think this is a good start but I would suggest the Go Find Me Gluten Free app and the list compiled on the gig website to see all the different GF options available in and around Atlanta and not limit myself to just these 10.

      Thanks for commenting! Yes, I use the go find me Gluten free app all the time! I think this list is a great local chains that we enjoy here in Atlanta. Most of the restaurants listed in the Go find me app for Atlanta are chains said to say. But I don’t think restaurants like Mary Macs, Egg harbor Cafe Sally’s Bakery and The Flying Biscuit qualify as chains! I think that as more and more people become aware of food allergies and celiac disease more options will become available! And of course, my list is not the definitive list! If you find any great ones for picky eaters like my son, come back and let us know! I’d love to try them out! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for commenting!

    I lived in Atlanta for a really brief time during college and being from Seattle what struck me about the city was the lack of variety in food. I love that the city is growing and expanding and getting more food options. I will always have a special place in my heart for ATL

    We live in Austin, TX where GF dining is easy to find. My husband is incredibly gluten sensitive and when we visit my family in Atlanta, we’ve struggled to find local places to eat. Chains are fine, but we prefer to experience the local flavor. So thanks for this list!
