Here are just a few Michigan eateries to check out for a gluten-free menu and yummy options.
  • Buddy’s Pizza — Home of Detroit’s original gluten-free pizza, this restaurant has been around since 1936 and is famous for its square pies, which it has been serving since 1946 — and a gluten-free version (pdf) since 2009.
  • CK Mediterranean Grille & Catering — This Detroit staple boasts that a whopping 80 percent of its menu is gluten-free, and they not only serve these great dishes, they deliver!
  • Passport Pizza — Offering a little bit of everything, this Detroit business has a wide range of gluten-free choices like ribs, pizzas and chicken wings.
  • Marie Catrib’s — Run by the Lebanese-born, erstwhile Yooper of the same name, this Grand Rapids eatery offers several homemade, gluten-free bread choices for sandwiches and other snacks to take home.

You can always find more gluten-free establishments at the Gluten Free Registry, organized by state or city.
Maybe gluten-free isn’t your only concern when it comes to dining. If you have other food allergies, AllergyEats offers a great service for finding dining that can meet your needs.
