gluten free resources in Houston
I usually turn to the internet when I need a specialty gluten free item, so I sometimes overlook the amazing resources right in my area. We live not too far from Houston, which means just about anything we need is within easy reach, and that includes gluten free goodies.

Here are just a few of our favorite gluten free bakeries, stores, and restaurants in the Houston area.

Our 3 Favorite Gluten Free Resources in the Houston Area

Mary's Gluten Free

Due to an ill-planned elimination diet, I found myself needing two gluten free, dairy-free, and egg-free birthday cakes. I didn't trust myself to deliver something edible on such short notice, so we turned to Mary's Gluten Free on Gladebrook Dr. in Houston. We tried a vegan chocolate cake with non-dairy vanilla icing, a vegan chocolate cake with non-dairy chocolate icing, some vegan chocolate cupcakes, and some chocolate truffles. We were very happy with all of these items. The customer service was excellent as well. I had a vague idea of how I wanted my daughter's cake to look and the rep spent lots of time with me fleshing everything out.

Gluten Free Houston

Now we normally use Rudy's for sandwich bread, hamburger buns, and hot dog buns, but before we discovered Rudy's at our local Kroger, we used to get all those convenience foods from Gluten Free Houston on Wirt Rd. They also sell muffins, pies, cookies, and other goodies.

Fogo de Chao

Fogo de Chao is a Brazilian steakhouse with tableside service. If you love meat-- which we've now given up on our vegan trial-- you will adore Fogo de Chao. It isn't technically a gluten free restaurant, but almost everything in the place is gluten free. At the time of our last visit, only two items contained gluten, and they were both on the salad bar. Make sure you ask your server, but you should be safe eating almost everything here. My personal favorites are the cheesy bread (yummy!) and the garlic mashed potatoes. Meat options include filet mignon, chicken, lamb, ribeye, and sirloin.

There are other gluten free options in Houston, but these are the ones we use most regularly. What are your favorite local gluten free bakeries, restaurants, or stores?
