Get Gluten-Free Giddy at These San Antonio Restaurants

Thank goodness, it's no longer a struggle to find yummy gluten-free delights in San Antonio!

5 Points Local is still one of the only dedicated gluten-free restaurant in town, but plenty of others have gluten-free menus or are simply naturally gluten-free. However, if you do have a serious gluten allergy, 5 Points Local is your best bet as it's an entirely gluten-free kitchen. 

Besides a versatile menu with veggie offerings or ones including protein if you're so inclined, they are also known for their scrumptious gluten-free baked goods, from carrot cake to brownies. They also have fresh juices, which are just the perfect accompaniment to those off the charts gluten-free pancakes everyone raves about!

Sweet Yams is a true gem just a little off the beaten path, if you're staying downtown, but not far if you're looking for delicious gluten-free eats. This quaint neighborhood eatery is largely gluten-free, with down home dishes that will make your mama smile. If you're craving mac-and-cheese with some blackened shrimp or some collard greens to warm your cockles, this is the place!
