Updated February 22, 2021
Have you heard? Due to Covid-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”. And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.
With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis keeping WNY at home for the foreseeable future, we’ve had several requests for a guide to restaurants offering take out with gluten-free options, so we cross-checked our Restaurants Offering Take Out During Covid-19 guide with our Best Restaurants for Gluten-Free Eats guide and pulled any matches. Of course, due to the adapted nature of the menus restaurants are offering and the rapidly changing environment we are constantly in right now, you may not find exactly what you’re looking for from these places, but we hope this guide will be a good start in your search for gluten-free goodness.
Please note that this guide is accurate as of March 25 and the hours, menus, and status of operations are subject to change. Check the restaurants facebook pages and websites for the most up to date information!
