22 Great Gluten-Free-Friendly Austin Restaurants

Gluten-free chicken and waffles from Thai Fresh.

Austin is an exceptionally friendly town for gluten-free diners. There are well-informed kitchens offering carefully marked menus, restaurants with completely separate lists of dishes, and places entirely dedicated to serving only gluten-free fare. Plus, any fine dining restaurant will happily adjust tasting menus, and the city's two signature cuisines — barbecue and Tex-Mex — tend to be low on wheat, though it's always important to check in about ingredients.

That said, there's a difference between being relegated to eating salad and bunless burgers and getting to enjoy food that's usually off-limits, and Austin’s gluten-free array is boundless with options ranging from pancakes at Kerbey Lane to Detroit-style pies from Via 313. This update includes North Austin’s Ichi Umi sushi and Dia’s Market.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
