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, we’ll dive into known options downtown, including those in the Las Vegas Arts District.
Claim Jumper at Golden Nugget: Although the restaurant at Golden Nugget that specializes in burgers, sandwiches, steaks, and seafood doesn’t list any gluten-free items on their main menu, they do offer a gluten-sensitive menu upon request.
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: Personally, we 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.
Simply Pure in the Downtown Container Park: Located near El Cortez in the Downtown Container Park, Simply Pure’s menu is almost entirely gluten-free. All items that fit that description, or can be upgraded to be gluten-free are clearly labeled on their menu. A sampling of items offered includes tacos, Thai Basil Spring Rolls, Angel Hair Zucchini Pasta, and Vegan Lasagna, among others.
Hopefully, we were 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 prevelent on the Strip vs. Fremont Street, so we would recommend grabbing a bite before heading downtown.
