Wendys chili, baked potato and frosty all on their gluten free menu..Do I dare??? Anyone eat this stuff? I haven't eaten in any restaurant in over 6 months. Sometimes it would be nice to eat out while out shopping. Anyone know of any safe places to eat in the Kansas City area?

I was not aware that Wendy's had gluten free options until I read on Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Twitter acct. that she ate there with her family after going to a pumpkin patch. She is on The View and has celiac disease. I thought if she eats there, it must be safe..right? I'm nervous to do so though.

I was happy to learn their Chili was gluten-free, that was one thing I used to get on the run a lot. I guess you could just try it, maybe some others will answer your post to see if anyone else had issues.

I'm in KC.

pf Changs at the Plaza

Waldo Pizza

Haven't done it yet, but 5 Guys

I have gotten potato and chili at Wendy's I ask them not to open the potato. I put the chili on the potato.

DQ ice cream but don't get any mixed things like milkshake or Blizzards as the risk of cc is great.

Jaspers - ask to talk to the chef, sometimes they have gluten-free pasta, too

BRGR in PV at Corinth

People tell me Chick Fil A has good options

Spin does gluten-free pizza but when it's busy, there is a lot of flour flying

If you go when it's not super busy like a Sat night, you will always be safer.

HyVee has more gluten-free items than WF. You can get a list on line of all of the HyVee brands that are gluten-free.

Hi neighbor! KC area here too! I love Hyvee! Whats BRGR in Prairie Village? We can't to go Chick Filet or PF Changs due to nut allergy. I heard Waldo Pizza was safe but the idea of them making a mistake scares me!

I called Zarda BBQ after reading on their sauce bottles that it was gluten-free. I asked if the food was gluten-free they told me beans all meat and salad bar was..I got sick as a dog there.

Thanks for the info on Jaspers. I also heard that Jess And Jims (martin city i think) is safe but I am too chicken to try any of them yet.

Waldo does a good job. The local Celiac group had a teen meeting there so I thought I would try. They act very casual about it but they have 5 gluten-free beers and I always see someone else have a gluten-free pizza.

BRGR is basically expensive burgers with a gluten-free bun and dedicated fryer. Don't go when busy.

Not sure about Jess & jims. Haven't been in years and was never impressed with the service.

Gates sauce that you get at the store is gluten-free. Like Zarda, I wouldn't think they would do a good job keeping crumbs in check at the restaurant.

I was told that Taste in old downtown OP does gluten-free.

Have we bored everyone in the rest of the country yet?

THe baked potatoe and frosty are some of my standards when I'm out doing errands or working on the road. I always explain my "allergy" (even though its not an allergy) and they always change their gloves. I have not done good with their Chili. I am very sensitive to CC. But, in the summer, my kids love when we get to go and have a Frosty! Fun times.

There is a PF Changs in the southern part of KC. Regarding your peanut allergy. You ought to contact the corporate office regarding your peanut allergy and see what they say is safe for you. We love PFChangs. They do more than any other resturant that I know of to keep allergans out of the food when needed.

Also, the Outback up by the Airport does a good job. I always go right when they first open (at 4) and try not to go when they are busy. They are not open for lunch. I think there are more Outbacks, but we've only eaten at the one by the Airport.

Good luck!

I'm in Canada but I eat Wendy's chili fairly frequently - it's a great standby as we travel around with the kids for hockey. It's nice to have a go to meal/snack that I can trust - something hot. I pack food all the time but the chili is nice to sit down to - if I'm hungry I get the baked potato too. I believe I got glutened once by the chili - out of about 20 times eating it...fairly sure but it could have been something else.

I love DQ sundaes in the summer ! Another go to gluten-free treat...in a place where other folks can get something as well.

yes i work at wendy's everything on the gluten free menu is fine, and if you tell them you have an allergy they will change their gloves and prepare everything on an extra clean surface so there is no cc

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
