San Antonio Restaurants That Accommodate Diners with a Gluten-Free Diet
Dining out when you have a gluten-intolerance can be super annoying, and even dangerous. Thankfully, there's quite a few restaurants that cater to those living with celiac disease, or who just don't want to mess with gluten. While some of these restaurants are completely gluten-free, keep in mind that not all of these spots are, so alert your server of any special requests and they'll do the rest.
