Here are some places I have visted/ordered from with good results:
Mellow Mushroom, Uno's, and Boston's all have pretty good gluten free pizza. Uno's is my personal favorite.
The Melting Pot has great fondue and they are equipped to provide you with a gluten free meal.
P.F. Chang's has a gluten free menu. They are also well trained.
If you live between Denton and Fort Worth, check out Ranchman's in Ponder, TX. The chef/owner, Dave, is gluten intolerant and can whip you up an old favorite gluten free. He likes advanced notice, so call ahead. (www.ranchman.com)
Gluten Free Houston (http://www.glutenfreehouston.com). They ship to other locations in Texas.
I am certain there are some other places but they are not coming to mind. As far as grocery shopping (In the Fort Worth area) I like the Kroger off of Heritage Trace and the Sprouts off of 1709 on the Southlake/Keller border. I can pretty much get anything I need between those two places. They are not my closest grocery stores but for my needs, they are the best.
In northeast Texas (Nacogdoches) and somewhere in western Louisiana (sorry, not certain where, but I can update later with information), there are Granary Street Discount Health Food Stores. The prices are reasonable (I find many items there cheaper than they are in the grocery stores, and sometimes the healthier item is even cheaper than the standard grocery store fare), and they offer quite a few gluten-free options.
I just have to throw my 2 cents out there about a restaurant called Zeste (3508 Padre Blvd, S Padre Island, TX (956) 761-5555) This place is Fabulous! I went in there for lunch today. Everything is made from scratch. But their entire menu is labeled if it is Gluten Free or not. Not only that, the staff is very knowledgeable in GF items. Kudos to ZESTE
I have also been told by JOsh and Amy, the owners of Psychideli, that you can order loafs of GF bread from them. Just tell them know a few days in advance and they will make it up for you. I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard a lot of good things about this deli.

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
"Even on the days you just don't feel like going to work, you still go, right? It's the same with exercise." -Professional Volleyball Player Gabrielle Reece
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. - Emily Kimbrough
The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea. --Isak Dinesen
Quote: "First thing in the morning, after all the equipment is cleaned and sanitized, the owner and chef (Catherine Ruehle) bakes some gluten-free cupcakes and cookies (and that is the only time she bakes gluten-free, to reduce the risk of cross-contact). Currently, she offers gf sugar cookies with a lemon glaze, gf vanilla cupcakes, and gf chocolate obsession cupcakes, but she is working on recipes for gf scones, muffins, coffeecakes, and snickerdoodles. She even bakes custom cakes for weddings and special events!
If you live nearby, or are coming this way, you might want to call in the morning and have them set some aside for you or place an order, because once she’s started baking with the regular flours, she does no more gf baking that day. The girl behind the counter told us that some gf people will come in and buy all that they have (and I believe it - those that don’t bake at all can become quite desperate for good gf baked goods)."
