GrubHub, an online and mobile food ordering service, has tracked the gluten-free dining trend at U.S. takeout restaurants. An analysis of 2013 GrubHub orders reveals that menu items identified as gluten-free have grown in popularity with diners by nearly 60 percent since April 2012.

To better gauge the demand for gluten-free takeout, analysts examined orders from GrubHub's network of more than 20,000 restaurants in 500-plus cities. Findings suggest that diners in the Pacific Northwest lead the demand for gluten-free options, with Seattle, Portland and Eugene, Ore., topping the list of cities with the highest percentage of gluten-free orders.

Top cities for these orders include:

  1. Seattle
  2. Portland
  3. Eugene
  4. San Jose
  5. Chicago
  6. Raleigh
  7. Denver
  8. Minneapolis
  9. Los Angeles
  10. Albany, N.Y.

In addition to identifying the U.S. cities with the highest gluten-free demand, GrubHub analysts determined the most popular gluten-free dishes. More than 4 percent of GrubHub restaurants now offer gluten-free options, and order data reveals specialty pizzas, salads, burgers, wraps and sandwiches to be the most-ordered.
