When I first found out I was traveling to Austin on a work trip, I decided to do some research and find celiac friendly restaurants. The Cheesecake Factory was not my first choice, but it certainly surprised me.
At the restaurant I ordered a gluten free cheeseburger with sweet potato fries.
When they brought the cheeseburger to me, it was on a giant bun, which automatically set off alarm bells in my head. Being my overly cautious self, I asked the waitress if it was in fact gluten free. Not only did she answer that it was, she explained how to tell the difference between a gluten free bun and a gluten containing one. That kind of care to make sure the food is gluten free makes me more inclined to return there again. The cheeseburger was quite tasty as were the sweet potato fries.
Of course you can't go to the Cheesecake Factory and not get cheesecake! They have a gluten free Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake which is great for me, since I love all things chocolate. When they brought it to the table I was shocked by how delicious it looked!
I can say with absolute certainty that the next time I am in Austin, Cheesecake Factory will get a visit from me.
