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.

    • 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 eat...is 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.
