Dining Out Gluten Free in Athens Ohio – Part 3

Since I originally wrote Dining Out Gluten Free in Athens Part 1 and Part 2, I’ve tried several more restaurants and had more experience with old ones.

Restaurants I eat with No Issues


This one to me was a surprise and I walked by it many times before deciding to take a risk and try it.  Well to my surprise I have been able to consistently eat their Shish Kabob without issues!  I just have them create it without the wrap and put it all on a plate with the hummus and they substitute rice for the wrap for me.  It’s pretty tasty, especially when dipping the meat into the hummus.   Here’s a photo when I got a salad instead of the hummus.

We don’t get a chance to frequently go out in the evening to eat but we have had a chance now to try Zoe’s.  I was told they are very accommodating for Gluten free and they were right!  I had a super delicious dinner and had no issues after eating it.  The staff seemed very knowledgeable.  I will definitely go back again when we get the chance to!


Since writing Part 1 and Part 2, Donato’s now has Certified gluten free pizza!  It’s a ‘take and bake’ using Udi’s gluten free crust and made in a gluten free facility.  These pizzas are pretty good and a nice in between takeout and cook at home as you just pick one up and bake it!  They have Pepperoni and Cheese options, we sometimes add our own toppings to them when we get home before we bake them.

So one of my favorite restaurants before going gluten free is now my favorite again!  I can eat a variety of items here gluten free!  My favorite is the Mongolian Chicken.  I’ve also had rice noodle stir fry, chicken fried rice, rice noodle soup bowl.  They can do almost anything gluten free except for the premade sauces like they use for the Garlic Chicken for example.  Just be sure to emphasis the Tamari Soy sauce and not the regular soy sauce!  Always check with the owner Sandy if you aren’t sure!

Ohio University Inn – Cutler’s Restaurant

Another really nice dinner place to eat is Cutler’s Restaurant in the Ohio University Inn.  This is a more expensive place to eat but they do have very good food.  Hubby and I went here once for a nice meal and the staff was very knowledgeable and my meal was great.  Another highly recommended place to eat out for fine dining and Gluten Free!
