In N Out

3 posts in this topic

I know people have talked about In N Out before. I know the general consensus is that they are safe, maybe don't eat the grilled onions. I did contact them a while back about soy, just to make sure I could still eat there. I wanted to be sure what kind of oil they used in their fryers and what was in their shakes. Turns out I can still eat whatever I want there. :D (My issue with soy may differ mildly from yours, so your mileage may vary, I am not saying there is literally no soy in any products at all.)


So yesterday we were out running errands all afternoon and happened to be on coarse to drive by. I have been whining for weeks about how I want a burger and shake. So I whined again. This time it worked since we happened to be at the right end of town. I was so astounded by my experience that I had to share.


I ordered my burger, then my husband was ordering. Suddenly I was like omg, I forgot no condiments!!! So, I told her to make mine without any condiments. She was like okay.... you sure? So, while convinced that I will that "that look" that we all know, the one that says this lady is off her rocker, I just said I couldn't have them because they dip the spatula in the condiments then put them on the buns and it isn't safe for me. She was like oh, that isn't a big deal I can't have gluten either and I trained the whole store and they'll use squeeze bottles. She explained how she trained them not to screw up the grilled onions too and how they all thought she was crazy when she explained it to them. Kinda like how I thought she would look at me. :lol:


So, now I know that not only can I eat there, but I have a store in my city where someone who has celiac or some sort of gluten issue laid down the law on CC issues. How freaking cool is that? B)


(On a totally unrelated topic, she is also working on an online gluten-free bakery. When it opens I'm going to make sure everyone here knows about it. This girl really gets it.)

That's awesome. We found a licorice store near us that has gluten free licorice, and makes their own gluten-free waffles, the grind their own flour! It's so nice when you find somewhere safe. We found a 100% gluten-free bakery, everything made from scratching their store, the look on my 4 yr olds face when I said pick what you want, of course being her she choose the cheese bread with extra cheese!

Nice! Our local In n Out has never let me down either. I always get the sauce on the side in little packets just to be sure though. It's one of only two of three places where I know I can eat safely.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
