Once upon a time there were GF wings offered atWingstop.
I went on their website to find a location near me and decided to double check the allergens.
Egad! ALL of their food now is listed as containing gluten because of the way they filtrate their oil in the cleaning process, even the bone-in wings may have trace amounts of gluten...and can no longer be called completely gluten-free. (I'm guessing that means that they mix the boneless and bone-in wing oil during the cleaning process.)
Don't believe me (or don't want to believe me)?
Their allergens can be found on the website here.
Looks like I will be going to TGI Friday's for some bone-in wings that are GF from now on. Several locations now offer a gluten free menu...ask at the one nearest to you. I'll post some photos when I get around to it.
I guess this shows that it is always good to double check that allergen information at a restaurant has not changed since your last visit....

A few weeks ago I visited Seasons52 in the South Coast Plaza.
Their name comes from a "seasonally-inspired" menu (their words). They use fresh ingredients and promise that nothing on the menu is over 475 calories.
Their alternative menus (including gluten free) can be found here.
I had a nice beef meal, with seasonal vegetables and tasty potatoes. The sauce was tasty, but probably too spicy for most people (I really enjoyed it).

Service was attentive and unobtrusive. The interior was nicely designed, though some of the dining room chairs looked rather battered.

The wait for food was about 20 minutes, because it was cooked to order, so make sure you are not in a rush.
The official address is:

Thanks to you readers, celiacsunited.com got its 10,000th page view yesterday. Thanks for using my gluten free resource as your resource also. I'll be trying a small format change in the future, with more top 5 lists going forward. Let me know how you like it.
