Top 10 Gluten Free Establishments in Northwest Arkansas

Gluten is the general term for the proteins found in wheat.  It is the glue that holds food together, and it is found in many foods we regularly consume.  Many people today are gluten intolerant, and to accommodate their dietary restrictions, many restaurants have added a section of GF items to their menus.  The establishments on the Top 10 list below offer GF menu selections:

Bentonville
Crepes Paulette $
213 NE A St (Foodtruck) or 100 SW 8th St, Suite 4 (Storefront)
(479) 250-1110

Crepes Paulette makes their scrumptious crepes from buckwheat, which is really not a wheat at all, but is, instead, related to sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb.  All the crepes at Crepes Paulette are made from naturally gluten-free 100% organic buckwheat, giving the gluten intolerant a wide variety of crepes to choose from.

The Preacher’s Son  $$
201 NW A St, (479) 445-6065

Matthew Cooper, Executive Chef, has a Celiac condition, which has prompted him to learn how to cook gluten free. The entire menu is 100% GF.  Matthew’s signature dishes are beautifully presented, and taste divine.  Try the Pork Shank, a popular favorite, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try the Spiced Strip Steak.
