Hi -

Any suggestions for quick meals out for my 5 year old? Super picky so will only do grilled cheese and PBJ or a cheeseburger with no bun. Right now we do Jason's, Wendy's, and 5 Guys but looking for other options. I was surprised that so many places add wheat to their burgers!

BTW he is gluten free bc of his autism, not celiac. Small amounts of gluten doesnt seem to bother him, just large quantity, so we are not overly concerned about cross contamination.

Thanks!

Red Robin? He can eat the fries, too! If he will do Asian Pei Wei or PF Chang's.

In n out burger has always been great - only gluten there are the buns. Fries, shakes.

BJ's has great pizzas.

Will he try spaghetti? Old Spaghetti Factory has been doing gluten-free pasta for several years.

Kelley, where do you live ( if you want to say)? Some places are in certain parts of the country. beauJos is a pizza place with gluten-free cheese bread which is like a grilled cheese. I had one that only ate grilled cheese but he would eat cheese toast. Minskys pizza in the KC area.

I have found that if you take an older " kid", the younger one will try more options. My kids are now the older ones for their little cousin who will try it if M or J like it!

We are in Orlando so sadly no In n Out or Red Robin for us :(. He won't do Asian food either. We've actually been working in therapy to increase his food options and he's come a long long way but still very limited.

Honestly, we pack all our food.  Cheaper and healthier, if a lot more time consuming. :)  Ah, tradeoffs.

We usually pack our food too. But it's nice to have options when I don't have my act together. I love that Jason's has gluten free bread and wish other chains would have that option.
