My husband loves Cracker Barrel restaurant. We searched & searched & can't seem to get any info on their gluten free items. Does anyone know? It's an emergency. Ha!

Cracker Barrel has not been accomodating(at least from my experience). I also emailed them and they sent me an email stating that at this point they do not recommend that I eat there and so forth. Pretty much every place that serves gluten has that chance for cross contamination but for places without a policy about gluten free items it is especially risky. I do not recommend eating there.

I found out absolutely nothing either-I assume they use the same oil for their fries and nuggets, battered fish, etc...Robbie could maybe eat the veggies!

I took my son there and he had thier chicken tenderloins with no sauce and my son dipped it in ketchep. He then had mashed potates on gravy. He also had a small salad no crutons and I brought his own dressing. He didn't get sick so I guess he did okay. The chicken was just boiled and the brought him like 5 pieces of chicken and he was only 20 months old. My experence was very positive. Cracker Barrel was the first place we went gluten-free at. Our waitress was very nice and took the time for me to give he a crash course in eating gluten-free. I talked to her for about 15 mins and had a wonderful experience. We live in Kansas and we were at the Park City one near Wichita. Good Luck

Glad to hear someone had success there. I shall always remember their biscuits fondly. :( I do think some of those "down-home" places are harder to eat at than others. ...like eating with my husbands grandparents!!! "How could anyone not eat fried chicken!"

"How could anyone not eat fried chicken!"

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

LOL! I've heard that before!!

I eat at Cracker Barrel quite a bit and haven't gotten sick (yet). I eat the chicken tenderloins and vegetables. I've had salads (minus croutons) and haven't gotten sick either. It probably depends on the individual restaruants. I eat at Chic-Fil-A here ALOT, but when I was in Atlanta this past weekend, we ate at one there (same food) and I got sick. I guess maybe some stores are "cleaner" than others??

HA! :P Jen, you kill me!

Yep, I've had the same response.

Dinner at my mothers: Fried okra, homemade biscuits, and southern fried porkchops... and everyone just stares as I happily eat my Amy's meal! :D

As for Cracker Barrel, good luck...just be aware of cross-contamination. :ph34r::rolleyes:

CB does have a new gluten-free list that they released about six months ago. My computer keeps doing really bizarre stuff when I try to cut and paste it, but you can contact them and they'll send it to you.

I got a reply from CB's corporate office today saying they didn't have a gluten-free list. Did you get yours from their main office? Would love to have a copy if you ever figure out how.

Welll, I guess it is a toss up with Cracker Barrel. I still can't get a response from them on anything to do with gluten. I'd say that is a sure sign that they don't have anything that would be good for my husband to eat or they just don't care. So I guess no more Cracker Barrel for us.

Sugar Cured Ham Pork Chops Carrots Green Beans

Grits Grilled Chicken Mashed Potatoes Sweet Potato Casserole

Bacon Apples Hamburger no glutens added (without Bun)

Corn Applesauce Country Ham Steak Eggs Baked Potato

Sliced Turkey Breast Baby Lima Beans Brown Rice

This is the list CB released several months ago after a couple of years of saying they were working on it. Fries are not gluten-free because fryers are not dedicated.

Sorry about the way the list is but my browser kept shutting down when I tried to cut and paste it in a single column.

Hi Jenvan,

I know what you mean....not eating fried chicken is unacceptable! So...I figured out a way to make my own. I dip chicken pieces in an egg mixture then coat them with all purpose gluten-free flour mixed with salt, pepper, chilli powder, garlic powder, and red pepper for that spicey taste. Then I bake it in the oven at about 375 degrees turning over each piece several times until a meat thermometer tells me they are done. Just before I take them out, I put them under the broiler (just to crisp up a little more) for a few minutes.

Hmmmmm :P:D Every one in the family loves it.

Let me know if you try it and how it truns out.

Wendy

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
