Gluten-Free Restaurants in Central, East & South Austin

Whether it is Mexican-inspired, Tex-Mex, BBQ, healthy eats, comfort food, drive-through, takeout, casual or finer dining food – here’s your guide to some of the best gluten-free restaurants in central, east and south Austin! Austin’s Best Eats One of the things that has really improved in the last few years is that restaurant staff are really knowledgable about celiac disease, dietary restrictions, and sources of gluten cross contamination.  Make sure to talk with your server or a manager about what is safe, especially if the gluten-free options aren’t marked clearly on the menu and if you have celiac disease. It is so exciting to have so many places with incredible gluten-free options in this awesome town.  Hope this guide helps you find new favorites or...

Gluten-Free Food & Fun This Year in the ATX | 2018 Recap

This has been a pretty fun year for us.  There were some nice surprises, good food, and lots of fun things to do in the ATX!  So these are some of the highlights from 2018. Celebrating our 7th Wedding Anniversary We started off the year celebrating our 7th anniversary at ATX Cocina this year.  We love this place!  It’s a 100% gluten-free kitchen and elevated modern Mexican food.  They have the best corn tortillas made from Mexican heirloom corn.  The service and the food are exceptional.   We usually order the salsa sampler (all the salsas are so good but that smoky bean dip is to die for), barbacoa beef short-rib (to share), brussels sprouts with green mole and verde chorizo, and the smashed papas braves...

Gluten-Free Restaurants in Austin, Texas

Gluten-Free Eats in the ATX Hi everyone!  I made a list of our favorite gluten-free restaurants in Austin, Texas.  It’s really nice to live in a city with so many options!

Whereas we probably ate at PF Chang’s in The...

The Weekly Menu April 18, 2016

Hi friends! So this is always my favorite time of the year! I love April and spring and it’s my birthday month, but most of all I love the Austin Food and Wine Festival. We’ve been going to this event before it became “this event” (it used to be local before C3 took it to the next level) and way before I ever knew anything about food blogging. My friends, my husband and I just love to taste the wines, sample the cocktails, eat the bites.  As busy as we get and as much as our lives change, we still always seem to come together for this annual event. There are so many gluten free, dairy free options for me, too – some of the...
