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!"

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.
