For those suffering from gluten intolerance, a vacation to a city with an unknown restaurant landscape can be a frightening proposition. Fortunately, Las Vegas resorts, especially on the Strip, offer a solid number of dining options with gluten-free items which should aid you in enjoying your trip.
Although there aren’t any completely gluten-free restaurants in Las Vegas, I thought it’d be helpful to provide a rundown of those that offer gluten-free options on their menu.
For each restaurant offering gluten-free items, I’ll be sure to link out to the menu so you can easily compare and contrast your options.

Gluten-Free Restaurants Downtown Las Vegas
When it comes to finding gluten-free restaurants in Las Vegas, the Fremont Street area isn’t likely the most effective place to look as options are limited. Below, I’ll dive into known options downtown, including those in the Las Vegas Arts District.
Le Thai: A popular spot for those seeking spice, Le Thai is located steps away from El Cortez on Fremont East. Gluten-free options include stir fry and fried rice dishes.
Saginaw’s at Circa: Although Saginaw’s monstrous sandwiches aren’t offered in glutenless form, the menu does offer a selection of salads and breakfast items that are.
Magnolia’s Veranda at 4 Queens: Although there aren’t a ton of options, Magnolia’s Veranda does clearly mark gluten-free items on their menu. Entrees that have that designation include their Ribeye Steak and their New York Sirloin Steak. Additionally, guests are able to substitute gluten-free bread for sandwiches on their menu.
Pizza Rock at Downtown Grand: I personally think Pizza Rock ranks among the best pizza in Las Vegas. They also offer a selection of gluten-free pizzas that are baked in a separate oven. Note as well that you can substitute gluten-free dough for most of their pizzas for a $5 upcharge.
Hopefully, I was able to help you find a gluten-free restaurant in Vegas that works for you and your group! As you can tell, options are much more prevalent on the Strip vs. Fremont Street, so I’d recommend grabbing a bite before heading downtown.
