Hey gang,

I am headed to Knott's Berry Farms tomorrow with my little brother.

Is there any place in there that accomodates gluten free folks?

Hello,

I don't know anywhere inside the park where you can eat safely, but directly across the street from Knotts Berry Farm, at 7971 Beach Blvd: NW corner of Beach Blvd and La Palma, is the Claim Jumper restaurant. You can go to their website, claimjumper.com and print a menu to take with you. Watch out, the menu doesn't always specify that a dish automatically comes with bread, so the first thing I ordered had a piece of garlic toast laying across it. The food is good and the portions are large. The waiter there told us he has run across the street to Knotts, gone on 3 rides, and been back within his lunch hour. So it is pretty close but you still can drive.

Have fun at Knotts!

p.s.

Please let us know if you actually find somewhere in the park where you can eat. I doubt it. There is Mrs. Knotts, the Fried Chicken and Boysenberry pie place, and lots of little places, but I couldn't eat in the amusement park the last time I went.

Well,

I made the trip.

First off, there is not a huge amount of choices for us there. However, I was able to find a small restaurant in the front of the park that served burgers and lay's chips. I ordered the burger with no bun.

I actually brought a backpack in the park and had some glutino cereal bars, 4 pieces of gluten free bread and some perky-o's in a ziploc bag. I was fine.

The burger was actually pretty darn good! I also had some kosher dill pickles at another place down the way from the burger place.

In addition, I drank probably 5 bottled waters and 2 vitamin waters.

Grand total for 2 burgers, 2 bags of chips, 5 bottled waters and 2 vitamin waters = $51

LOL, what a rip off...

Hope you had a good time anyway! I only go there in I think certain days in October or November, when my husband and I get in free because he is a Vet. It is too bad food choices are so limited at the Knotts. I hear better things about Disneyland.

I'm going to Knott's on Nov. 16th and did a bit of research. They do have a Johnny Rocket's in the park and I know that they will accommodate us. I'm not sure about any of the other places yet.

    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.
