Cracker Barrel

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

    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html
