They should change their motto to Love all, serve some...

Dear Angie,

Thank you for contacting Customer Care and for your inquiry. We apologize however, we currently do not have a gluten free menu. Please feel free to contact us again if we may be of any help to you in the future.

Love All Serve All!

Customer Care Team

Hard Rock Cafe

Are there any menu selections that are gluten free or could easily be made gluten free?

Thanks,

Angie

I know, I know... I was just really hoping to get to go to Universal Studios and eat at Hard Rock Cafe once Tori's old enough to appreciate it. I guess that idea's shot though.

Our Hard Rock Cafe (in Dallas) closed this week. I went there once when it first opened, long time ago. Not very good overpriced food. The worst part was it was so loud you couldn't hear youself think. Never went back.

What I am kind of excited about though, they just opened a House of Blues here. A variety of live acts all the time. A restaurant, plus memorabelia. They're having a Blues Brothers opening with Dan Ackroid & Jim Belushi. By invitation only of course.

best regards, lm

It's just loud and expensive. If you're at Universal Orlando you MUST go to Margaritaville. The executive chef emailed me back personally, gave me his personal cell phone number, created a meal just for me. He also told me of a guest who came once who was so sensitive they had to saran wrap the entire table and chair!! Now *that* is customer service!!! :lol:

This apparently is recent. On the gluten alerts page of the Clan Thompson celiac site, for Feb. 2, 2007, it says: "... Hard Rock Cafe has withdrawn its gluten free menu - no reason given."

So they HAD one and got rid of it. (I knew I'd seen mention of gluten-free items before.) I wonder if someone got accidentally glutened and sued.

Wow. Now that is amazing costumer service, but if I was so sensitive that I needed my table saran wrapped, I think I would be too scared to eat anywhere anyways!

Our Destin Hard Rock just opened here a couple years ago. The service has been terrrible, twice. And the food was horrible, twice. We never go there even though it's less than five minutes away due to these bad experiences so I am not surprised to see they are not accomodating to celiacs. The Orlando one was pretty bad as well. What gives with the Hard Rock? They seem to just want the tourists one time visit and money. It's a shame but there are plenty other restaurants out there!

We have been to the Hard Rock NYC, Philly, Orlando and a few others I can't remember, for us it is always good. Expecially the NYC one, which is close to home for us. So far the Philly and NYC one were very accomodating.....yes no gluten free menu but the managers have been helpful and my son is able to eat. When going to restaurants, even w/ "gluten free" menus- it always seems to be the same, steak and potatoes w/ a steamed veggie. All the menus do is tell us if they don't put stuff on the already gluten free foods. My son is happy with the steak combo but that might not last long, I have only found TRUE GLUTEN FREE menus w/ gluten free pastas, pizza ect. at a very limited amount of places. I can't wait for the day for more places to step up. I am having a hard enough time w/ our local pizza place to carry "riding high" pizza.

I have found the triumph dining cards a huge help, expecially when in quebec the french one helped a ton!! We travel alot for my sons hockey and I could tell you about all kinds of chains that have been horrible or good. -good luck! :)

:) I have to post this because I was so thankful to the manager at the Hard Rock Cafe in Philly. My 13 yr old son's class was planning a trip to philly and lunch at the hard rock and dinner at a food court. You can imagine my stress.

I called the Hard rock and yes not much to choose from-the veggies ok, steak ok, but the loaded mashed potatoes-no good and fries which are in their own oil was sprinkled w/ "seasoning" that was no good. The manager asked what he could eat and he went a got a baked potato on the day my son was expected , had it cooked for my son when the class arrived. The staff was wonderful as well. Teachers and chaperones all said the staff was great.

I wanted to pass this along because when someone tries to help I am so greatful, I have gotten so many mixed responses this past year, but mostly positive in alot of restaurants.

I've eaten at the hard rock here in Atlanta once and even though it was a bit of a hassle even though I'd called earlier in the day I didn't get sick. I find it more helpful to CALL places like that rather than email. You can get a better responce that way,

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
