I was wondering if anyone has had experience at Applebees? I usually only get a salad anyway, but sometimes it has chicken or shrimp, would it be safe if I was to ask to make sure it wasnt basted or breaded with anything? Probably wouldnt be able to use dressing though, oh well, I can live without that. I guess this is a silly question seeing as I sort of answered it but I'm gonna post it anyway...

I was at Applebees last Saturday the 26th. I ordered a simple lime grilled chicken. I ended up having to leave fast as I felt really sick in minutes after just eating the chicken fillet. This is the first time this has happened to me in a long time, I am still suffering joint pains and intestinal upset. I don't think I will ever trust Applebee's again, there menu has changed for the worse lately and it is all prepared and covered with sauces or cheese just nothing simple and clear-cut to order there... hope that is a help... Good Luck, Nancy

Applebees is VERY not celiac friendly. I refuse to spend my money there.

Indeed--the general consensus is that Applebees is unaccomodating. Try Outback Steakhouse :)

Yeah I was treated very bad when I went in there. I refuse to go there too. I love the outback you should try there sometime as celiac3270 suggested. :D

Unfortunately I'm at school in Cortland NY, a very small town, we're lucky enough to have gotten an Applebees built last year, there is probably an Outback in Syracuse and there is a Ruby Tuesdays there as well, so the 40 min drive is well worth it in my opinion, thanks for all of the good advice!

We haven't been to our Outback yet, since the Ruby Tuesday's in town has been so fabulous about accomodating our celiac half. The fries (at least at ours) are gluten-free and they make my DH/DS gorgeous bunless burgers and serve them with the foil still underneath them (the first time our server said "so you know we really did listen to you") with extra veggies to dress the plate. Of course, we tip ridiculously, which doesn't hurt!!

I have eaten at Applebees and had no problem. I usually get the caesar salad (no croutons, of course) and ask for salmon rather than the chicken. I put wine vinegar and oil on my salad. Hope this helps.

Remember to talk to your server, the manager, and sometimes the chef about your condition. Just ordering something you know is gluten-free, like plain animals, doesn't mean that they will be careful not to crosscontaminate. They will know they are dealing with a serious issue rather than just regular food.

Yes, Applebees is a no-no. I have tried a couple of times with the same reaction ~ SICK! :angry: What do you eat at Ruby Tuesdays?? Last time I ate there I thought they served me all gluten-free items, but I got SO sick afterwards. I am hesitant to go back.
