I eat the Creole Catch, which is Tilapia, at Ruby Tuesday's. It comes with broccoli and rice. It makes a great meal.

I am glad to hear that you had great experiences at Ruby Tuesdays. I, however, emailed them about a gluten free menu or at least options. I didnt get a good response. They said they will never give you any items that are gluten free, b/c their restaurants as a whole, will subsititue items in any dish at any time they deem necessary. They told me as items become unavailable for that day or whatever the situation might be.

Maybe someone else has heard differently? I was looking to find out if their bbq sauce was gluten free. As in their ribs are my favorite. I havent had them for such a long time :(

I alse emailed them and got the same response -their distributors vary from location to location, so they can never ensure that what you get is gluten free. (AND by the way, the email was of a rather rude tone). They made some excuse about being a large chain and I emailed then back saying that places like Outback, etc. are able to accomodate celiacs and they should reconsider their structure. I got no response. I personally am boycotting Ruby Tuesdays because of this (and so is my family).

FYI, their premade potato salad is NOT gluten free.

I learned the hard way. :(

My response was in a rather rude tone too. Like who are we to ask? Now no one in my family goes there anymore either. I said the same in my letter, that there are so many other chains jumping on the gluten free bus, maybe they would consider it too? Nope. Their loss. :angry:

Totally. Maybe after hearing from enough of us, they will figure it out - but until then, I'll just go to Chilis

I have a classmate who is a line cook at Ruby Tuesdays and he told me that I would be better off not eating there. I trust him because he has been interested in what I can and can't eat and doesn't want me to get sick.

I found out this weekend that the Ruby Tuesday's in Stroudsburg, PA has gluten free french fries every Saturday. They clean out the fryer & change the oil. My daughter had a great dinner, grilled shrimp & fries. They also have a good salad bar. I'm going to email them & see why they can't keep it like that all the time & also see if that's a chain-wide practice or just there.

I used to work at a ruby tuesdays and every ingredient/side/whatever comes prepackaged and overly processed in individual preportioned containers, so the food you're paying rediculous money for is basically just processed gunk that someone dumped out of a container and onto your plate and warmed up, or pulled out of a freezer, dropped in a fryolator and plopped it onto your plate. i wouldn't recomend going there for good food, celiac or not. i do think that they were a good company, customer service oriented, etc.... but you're getting the same processed crap that you could get in the freezer at the grocery store.

that's the end of my rant on ruby tuesdays. judging by my experience working there and at other places, you're better off going to a non chain family owned restaurant. the cooks at the chain don't mean to be rude, but they don't know what's in your food because they didn't cook it. i'd feel more comfortable asking a chef or restaurant manager questions about what they're serving when they actually made the food from scratch.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
