There are several different types of cards you can buy to inform chefs at restaurants of gluten issues. Here is a page with many different types to choose from: http://www.kintera.org/site/pp.asp?c=ewK0LjP7E&b=1040967 (Sorry, the link thing doesn't seem to be working)

Some restaurants we eat at regularly, safely, are: (keep in mind that my daughter seems to have some tolerance at this point)

Cracker Barrel (Grilled chicken and carrots/green beans - DON'T eat the cornbread, it has wheat in it.)
Wahoo's Fish Tacos (ours actually has a gf info sheet)
PF Chang's (has gf menu)
Ted's Montana Grill (has gf menu online - check it out so you know what to order)
Chipotle (no tortilla, of course)
Qdoba (no tortilla, of course. Their chips have wheat in them)

Local places are usually really easy, because they'll just send out the chef or the owner to chat with you about it.

If you are really sensitive, make sure you ask them to use clean preparation dishes/utensils, and clean hands and if applicable, a clean place on the grill. Deep-fried things (even fries) are usually not safe because gluten containing foods are often cooked in the same oil.

Hope this is helpful! Add more info if you have it! :)
