3 Great Restaurants for Gluten-Free Diets

3 Great Restaurants for Gluten-Free Diets

Last Updated: July 16, 2019 by Rod Evans | Food & Drink


It wasn’t too very long ago that asking to see the gluten free menu in a restaurant would have elicited a response along the lines of “What’s a gluten?” from your baffled server.

But in this era of expanding culinary enlightenment, most restaurants now take pride in catering to their gluten free customers with the same delicious, flavorful options that non-gluten threatened diners enjoy. Let’s take a look at some of Galveston’s top restaurants for diners who have to steer clear of gluten in all its many forms.

Taquilo's Tex-Mex Cantina

While this cool spot on Post Office Street just opened in 2016, it’s already made quite a name for itself thanks to its combination of traditional Tex Mex favorites and an insistence on using only the freshest ingredients. Gluten free options abound, with favorites like the grilled tilapia served with chimichurri slaw; grouper tacos; tacos de Camarones, featuring fresh gulf shrimp, and the beef, chicken, shrimp or veggie fajitas.

Giant Crab on Gaido

Gaido's Famous Seafood Restaurant

It’s hard to get any more Gulf Coast traditional than this Seawall institution, but Gaido’s has kept up with the times by quite nicely by offering numerous GF items, including the combination grilled seafood platter with shrimp, scallops and your choice of fish, and the grilled deep sea scallops. The chicken Ponzini also comes highly recommended, thanks to its melding of charcoal-grilled chicken, wild mushrooms and Swiss cheese sauce.

BLVD. Seafood

This Seawall favorite makes a habit of presenting its signature dishes in creative, versatile ways that make them accessible to virtually any customer, no matter their dietary restrictions. Whether it’s the Mediterranean chicken, shrimp Dejonge, cedar plank salmon or the blackberry pork chops, going gluten free never tasted so good.
