Hot Spots in the Restaurant

Each month, Beyond Celiac hosts a new social media initiative so you can stay up-to-date on all things related to living with celiac disease. Check back here on the first Monday of every month to see what's happening!


Dining out is one of the biggest challenges of living with celiac disease. When you're not in control of the food, it's easy to feel anxious about the possibility of becoming sick. 

While it's impossible to never be accidentally exposed to gluten, you can arm yourself with information to keep you safe. The best place to start? Knowing where the risks are. 

Check out the Hot Spots in the Restaurant infographic below to see where gluten is most likely to be lurking in restaurants. Then, read through the posts below the graphic for more information on why the location is considered a "gluten hot spot."
