Updated NJ Gluten Free Restaurant List (16 new restaurants, 14 new chain/quick serve/fast food restaurants listed)

I have found a large number of additional restaurants to add to my Gluten Free / Dairy Free Restaurant List

Single Location Restaurants:

Alfonso's  (99-101 West Main Street, Somerville, NJ) - They have GF pizza on their menu but I'm not sure about other allergens.  I included them because they flagged items with nuts on their menu. I've never been.

Antoinetta's Restaurant (523 Cedar Run Dock Rd, West Creek, NJ) - They have a gluten free menu with limited dairy free options.  I have never been.

Artisan's (1171 Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ ) - I've never been.  They have a GF menu on their website that lists the things they can modify to be GF.  They also list GF pasta for +$2.50.

Backyard Bistro (732 Jefferson, Hoboken, NJ) - I have never been; the only GF item on their menu is GF linguini for an extra $3.

Belzano (3495 Route 1 South, Princeton, NJ and 1060 Cedar Bridge Avenue, Brick, NJ)  - they have a GF menu that includes pizza, pasta, and panini's?  I'm not sure on other allergens in the pizza/panini's.  I have never been.

Casona (563 Haddon Avenue • Collingswood, NJ) “Cuban & Nuevo Latin Cuisine” - I have never been but their Gluten Free menu is extensive!

Europa South (521 Arnold Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ) - GF items on their menu have a GF in front of them.  They appear accommodating on other allergies as well.  I've never been.

Go Lightly (4 South Fullerton Str, Montclair, NJ)  - There isn't much information on their website and they appear to be a store rather than a restaurant.  However, there is a write up here: that talks about them having DF/GF icecream for the summer!  They also have a facebook page.  I've never been.

Greenhouse Cafe (Corner of 6th Street & Long Beach Blvd, Ship Bottom, NJ) - I have never been but they appear to have quite the menu including: pizza pasta, rolls, pancakes, etc.  Not sure on other allergens but they seem really up on healthy eating.

Il Capriccio Reistorante (7 West Main Street, Mendam, NJ) - They have multiple types of GF pasta. I have never been.

Mama's & Cafe Baci (260 Mountain Ave, Hackettstown, NJ ) - I can't believe I missed this one on the first draft of this list.  A great pizzeria/Italian restaurant with a good GF selection.  They even have a GF/DF dessert option.  (If you are only GF, check out their amazing dessert menu!)

Modello's (557 Englishtown Road, Monroe, NJ)  - They appear to have a decent sized GF menu which includes pasta, pizza and entres.  I have never been.

Pasta Pomodoro (700 Haddonfield-Berlin Road, Voorhees, NJ) - A good sized GF menu including bread, pizza, pasta (unknown other allergens).  I have never been.

The Tortilla Press (703 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, NJ 08108) - They have a good sized GF menu including corn tortillas.  I have never been.

Tuscan House (1250 Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ) - They have GF pasta and their GF items are flagged on the menu.  I have never been.

Via 45 (45 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ) They don't appear to have a website, but I found their menu here:  They look very accommodating to dietary concerns.  I have never been.

Via Roma (2360 Lakewood Road, Toms River, NJ) - One of the best GF/DF menus I've seen.  They even have Vegan items as well.  According to the website, they use Daiya non-dairy cheese.  Can't wait to try this one!


99 Restaurants (Deptford, NJ only) - They have GF menu on website including GF buns.  I'm not sure whether they are dairy free or not.  (Rumor has it, FF no longer in dedicated fryer.)  Pretty sure I ate in one of these out west a couple years back.

Fleming's (90 The Promenade, Edgewater, NJ and 500 Route 73 North, Marlton, NJ)  - I have never been but they have a sizable GF menu.

Iron Hill Brewery (124 East Kings Highway (Rt41), Maple Shade, NJ) - I have never been but they have a two page GF menu.  Not sure on other allergens. 

Joe's American Grill (1200 Morris Turnpike, Short Hills, NJ, 298 Garden State Plaza, Paramus, NJ) - They have GF pasta and will serve a hamburger without a bun.  They also have GF pizza crust but I don't know about other allergens.  I haven't been since becoming Gluten Free.

Joe's Crab Shack (Clifton, Lawrenceville, South Plainfield) - I have never been.

Longhorn (lots of locations) - GF menu is on the nutrition page.  I have never had trouble getting around dairy and they are very attentive to dietary concerns.

(Romano's) Macaroni Grill (lots of locations) - They have separate menus for all 8 major allergens (wheat/gluten combined).  However, they don't claim to have gluten free pasta, so eating GF here involves skipping the pasta (not that exciting in a restaurant with the word 'macaroni' in the title)!

Melting Pot (7 NJ locations) - A little clunky to navigate their website to get to the GF menu.  They have pots of broth for a dairy free option.

Olive Garden (lots of locations) - I haven't been since before I was GF.  They have a small GF menu including GF pasta and some grilled items.

Papa Razzi (1200 Morris Turnpike, Short Hills, NJ, 298 Garden State Plaza, Paramus, NJ) - menu states they have GF pasta and pizza (same parent company as Joe's American Grill). 

Pei Wei (400 Rt38 in Moorestown and 2050 Rt 70W in Cherry Hill) - They have a small GF menu on their website and their Nutritional information includes the eight major allergens (wheat/gluten combined) plus corn, sulfites, Sesame, and Legumes.

Salt Creek Grille (1 Rockingham Row, Princeton, NJ and 4 Bingham Avenue, Rumson, NJ) Gluten Friendly items on menu marked with a (g).  I've never been.

Quick Serve/Fast Food:

Fresh City (Livingston, others?) - For some reason they don't list their NJ location on their website.  In addition to having a Gluten Free menu, they also list out all of the ingredients of their sauces, dressings and spreads on their website.  I haven't been here yet.

Pure Tacos (1138 Boardwalk, Ocean City, NJ . . . so far) - According to their website, the entire location is GF!!!

So those are all the new restaurants I found.  Don't forget to check out the full listing here: Gluten Free / Dairy Free Restaurant List.  If you think I'm missing a restaurant let me know in the comments below.  But keep in mind, they need to have a GF menu on their website and there need to be options for those of us who need to be dairy free as well.


  1. Tortilla Press and Tortilla Press Cantina are both excellent. Chef Mark goes out of his way to accommodate his gluten free clients and the food is excellent. Well worth the 50 mile trip from our home!

  2. Thanks for the confirmations Barb. It's about a 2 hour drive for me so I haven't gotten down to try them out yet!
