Cheeseburger in Paradise – gluten free in Virginia Beach

The topic of gluten free fries recently on Celtic Celiac inspired me to list the places I can have celiac-safe gluten free fries. There are actually several places in Virginia Beach, but my favorite is Cheeseburger in Paradise.

Cheeseburger in Paradise GF sweet fire chicken and fries

This restaurant is a fun, summery, Jimmy Buffet style restaurant. It has island themed food and drinks and a nice gluten free menu. I’ve heard mixed reviews on various Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurants around the country, but the one in Virginia Beach is very celiac friendly, as long as you let them know it’s an “allergy.”

Pictured above is what I always get: the Sweet Fire Chicken (they have gluten free buns for $2 more, but I like it as a dinner without the bun).  It comes with pepperjack cheese, banana peppers, and delicious sweet fire sauce. I always get extra sauce to dip my fries.

So when in Virginia Beach, enjoy gluten free fries and other fun fare at Cheeseburger in Paradise, located near the Lynnhaven Mall, about 5-10 minutes from the Oceanfront and 5-10 minutes from Town Center areas. (As always, all opinions are my own and I was not compensated.)
