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 Hard Rock Cafe has withdrawn its gluten free menu - no reason given."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,

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      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,
