About this app

As always, we continue to fine-tune things for your viewing pleasure. Based on recent community feedback, we have removed the private chat option from the app. And of course, we continue to add vetted restaurants on a daily basis. Coming in 2024: an exciting new feature called the Celiac Sidekick, your personal guide to all things gluten-free.

"I highly recommend this app to anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance who seeks a reliable, trusted, transparent resource for dining out without compromising their health or well-being." - ApotheKell

"Invaluable resource. Gluten Dude cares more about the importance of gluten awareness than anyone out there. This app is fairly new but gaining traction and providing more and more trustworthy information daily. If you're celiac, or want to understand more about managing this disease, download the app." - Jim

"I have tried other apps and they always left me hanging- I found they did not have as wide ranging information or as high of standards for gluten free as Gluten Dude. I want to know the place is safe to eat - not just maybe you will be ok." - phoebs0001

"My daughter has celiac and is highly sensitive. We love this app and depend on it when we travel. Can't imagine life without it!!" - Dena

"Gluten Dude is really building a great reputation in the gluten free community. Beyond listing all possible restaurants in an area, Gluten Dude collects the experiences of the user and takes it a step beyond that to vet each restaurant's preparedness/measures taken to avoid cross contact. As compared to other apps, I feel that the GF community has a direct impact on the app and the direction it's headed in. It is my go-to resource for navigating healthy eating when traveling." Danielle

Facebook login didn't work and kept freezing on the login screen. Had to close the app down and login through another means. Once in the app, the maps feature didn't show what was on the list. Lastly, not sure if there just aren't a lot of users on here yet to leave reviews, but there was only "one option" in the town I was looking at (and again, that didn't even come up on the map when switching views) when other app show several. Sorry GD, this wasn't functional or useful for me... yet...

Hi Amy. First time we've heard of the Facebook issue. Will check on it. Not sure what you mean about the maps feature. If you search for Chicago, it will show the list of restaurants in Chicago. If you click on the Map view, it will show the map of the restaurants in Chicago. Were you not seeing that? And lastly, we vet/add restaurants daily.

I wish there was more content, but I understand that doesn't happen all at once. Still rating it 5 stars due to the unique approach compared to competing GF apps, and that I have had no problems with the app whatsoever. Came in handy while traveling for work, and allowed me to find a few new places locally as well -- one of which has become a regular stop!
