On the border has revised their gluten free menu, and the con queso appetizer is not on there anymore! So bummed. I used to just bring my own chips and eat it. Bummed bummed bummed. I emailed them. Wonder what they will say.

Not sure if anyone is reading this thread or not, but I did hear back from on the border. It was rather a nasty email. Well not nasty, but had sort of a rude undertone. The woman said "Well the queso contains modified food starch which is why it has NEVER been on our gluten free menu"

Um, I have a printed copy of the menu not only from the website, but from the corporate office listing the queso as gluten free! Now its not on there and she is telling me it never was. Hum....

We have had bad experiences with regular OTB food (not gluten-free.) The one near us is poorly managed & the staff is not at all "with it." We have had receipts with cuss word "jokes" directed at the other staff member, silly childish behavior & completely wrong orders. I certainly would never trust them with special food needs if they can't handle the regular menu.

I agree! I had my Triumph Dining Restaurant guide with me and a printed out copy of last month and I ALWAYS ate the con queso. It was listed as gluten free on both. I always asked for corn tortillas steamed and dipped them. Just this week my husband and I went there and I randomly asked them to bring me their updated list just to check and noticed the con queso was taken off! I was totally bummed, I am glad someone feels my pain. I figured they had changed suppliers... Thank you for emailing them and I am sorry their response was negative. I will think twice about going especially with out the con queso.

Read the ingredients. It's not like in the resturaunt when they would be fried in the same oil as flour tortillas or kids chicken nuggets.

I wondered why my 9 year old daughter kept getting sick after eating at On the Border. Thanks!

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
