Adventures in Gluten Free: Local Eateries

I’ve been gluten free for a few months now and I feel like I’ve gotten fairly good at picking out local places that offer something I can eat. We don’t eat out very often but when we do we need to find a place that all 4 of us agree on; a potential challenge while one of us is off gluten and another has never eaten meat (my 7 year old). Here is a list of places that I’ve found locally where I can easily get something gluten free. It’s worth noting that I do NOT have Celiac disease and am gluten free by choice, and so some of these places might actually not offer true gluten free options if you count the sauces or cross-contamination, but since I am not that strict I don’t worry about it. If you do have Celiac I’m sure you’re used to asking the restaurant more questions before ordering anything.

I hope this helped if you are just starting out being gluten free in Sycamore/DeKalb area! I didn’t include any chain restaurants just to keep it local but a lot of our chain restaurants also offer gluten free options. If you have some go-to places to eat please drop me a comment!

Take care of yourself,
