Applebees

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 :)

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.

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
