Yardbird Las Vegas – Gluten Free In Las Vegas Review

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have been told that Yardbird Las Vegas is no longer using a separate, dedicated fryer for their “gluten-free” options, so unfortunately we can no longer recommend them…sorry. (updated January 2016)

TRADITIONAL SOUTHERN COOKING
YaYARDBIRD CROPPEDrdbird Southern Table & Bar does not advertise a gluten-free menu anywhere on their website, nor anywhere in their advertising, so we were a little hesitant when they contacted us to come try their GLUTEN-FREE FRIED CHICKEN. Um, we didn’t need to be worried at all…holy moley, this place KNOWS how to do gluten-free and do it right!!!! Chef Todd (their executive chef) and Chef Vivian (executive pastry chef) have figured out ways to adapt SEVERAL of their menu items to be gluten-free upon request, and they are both SO knowledgeable and highly TRAINED (as is the whole staff) on how to prepare everything safely and free from cross-contamination (completely separate area for food prep and a dedicated fryer!!). I was absolutely impressed with them from my very first visit. Now, obviously, there are some items on the menu they cannot do gluten-free (unfortunately, you won’t be ordering the waffles with your GF fried chicken…LOL), but there are so many other truly great choices, I don’t think you’ll care. Just tell them you need to eat gluten-free and your server (or a manager) will let you know what is safe to order. Please, do yourself a favor and go check out this incredible (and VERY HIP) restaurant!!!

WHAT TO ORDER (my personal favorites):

  • Gluten-Free Fried Chicken! Cooked in a dedicated fryer…so tender and juicy, yet REALLY crispy on the outside!!!
  • 18 oz Tomahawk Porkchop! This thing is HUGE (definitely SHARE it with someone), and quite possibly one of THE MOST delicious things I have ever tasted!
  • Iceberg Wedge Salad! Iceberg lettuce (obviously), fresh corn, tomatoes, house-smoked BACON, avocado, Gaba Goo dressing…tons of flavor…YUM!
  • Charred Okra! Okay, this is not something I normally ever would have ordered, but they recommended it the first time I went…and it was AMAZING. I now order it EVERY time I go back!!
  • Peanut Butter & Chocolate Sundae! Yes, well, it’s about a MILLION calories, but SO WORTH IT! Definitely big enough to share…IF you want to. 😉
  • Sweet Tea Sorbet! On the lighter side and so absolutely tasty…the perfect ending to a big, satisfying meal!

TONS of gluten-free choices, clearly labeled as such on the menu (in fact, the executive chef’s daughter has Celiac, so he is very aware and has worked very hard to make sure there are lots of yummy choices for you). That being said, however, always be sure to mention that you need to eat GLUTEN FREE to your server (just to avoid any mix-up, since it tends to be a very busy restaurant). HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!

  • WHAT TO ORDER (my personal favorites):
    Viva Las Fajitas (seasoned skirt steak is my favorite)! Although it doesn’t say it’s gluten-free (because it normally comes with flour tortillas), they can make it gluten free and serve with CORN tortillas. It is SO GOOD…awesome flavor!
  • Tableside Guacamole! Ripe avocados, serrano chilies cilantro, onion, tomatoes, fresh squeezed lime, seasoned with sea salt…made to order, just how YOU like it!
  • Margaritas! Too many different yummy flavors and styles to list here… 😉
