Denny's

Hello,

I went to Denny's for dinner last night and was actually able to have a full, normal dinner while dining out! They had this BBQ grilled chicken with cheese and bacon on top, and your choice of 2 sides, so I got the baked potato and cinnamon apples. It was soooo good! And it was so nice to be able to have a regular meal and not have to ask for something without this and without that. Just thought I'd share!

I've always had good luck at Denny's, in fact they recognize me when I go in , they have been so accomodating. I used to look at their allergens list but I pretty well know what I can have before I get there. Just remind them to use clean utensils and clean the grill before they cook your food.

I have to travel for work a lot and eat at Denny's the most. They are always willing to accomodate people with gluten problems. I had one bad experience with a Denny's but that was only one out of dozens of meals.

Where did you find Denny's allergen list?

While on vacation in Bloomington, IN in May we took my celiac daughter to Denny's and the server called the manager over and he told me nothing in his restaurant was gluten free...and then walked away. I was totally furious and we got up and left.

We are going on vacation to San Diego in 2 weeks and would love to give Denny's another chance.

The Denny's I use is on the Pa. turnpike. They keep the Allergen list under the counter when you walk in the front door. It was they who showed it to me, it cross references all of their food, it spells out which allergens are in which foods. I usually eat the scrambled eggs and hash browns and sometimes I eat that new fish they have, starts with a T, sorry I can't remember it ( I must be having a "senior moment" <_< ). They might not recognize the term "gluten", you have to spell it out very carefully and remind them everytime about clean utensils and cleaning the grill. They've always been very accomodating.

We love Denny's it always has plenty of choices for my son. It is so nice to be able to go out to eat somewhere that is not "fast food" although the health of dennys might not be better. At least its an alternate place to try.

Voting with your feet is the best way. I guess some people forget that they are in a SERVICE industry. Hello! Of course, you can always write to the corp office.

Sunny San Diego! I'm jealous. I lived there for almost 9 years (Navy wife back then) and my daughter was born there. Have fun!!!

Hi all,

It's been a few years since these posts about Denny's. They now do have a list of allergens on their website, though it was very difficult to find. So here is the direct link to it (as of 12/23/2009):

I'm gonna try eating there today on my way to Northern Cali...wish me luck.

Best,

Liz

I just went to the site at Denny's that Liz posted. I do see the allergy list for wheat but not gluten. Please be careful because just because its wheat free does not make the item gluten free....

I realize this is an old post but I could have sworn that most of the foods they serve contain gluten. Could be one of our other allergens though. I know there is dairy in the green beans.

I went to Denny's tonight. I ordered scrambled eggs, bacon, ham and hash browns. I ended up having an asthma attack within 15 minutes. Usual triggers for me are msg,gluten, cinnamon and yelllow #5. Their allergy list doesn't list any of these. Any ideas?

Again this is an old post but I'd say in your case it would likely be msg.  Just a guess though.

Could be gluten. Denny's isn't really a place I would trust. They may have put the piece of toast that comes with the meal on top of the eggs and the waitress took it off before serving. Or cooked the hash browns where they just made pancakes, etc, etc, etc....

While I have not been there in several years, it would depend on the Denny's and what the waitstaff/cooks were like and what was ordered. If you are careful and have a good waiter, plus have good back and forth communication (this is where the word "allergy" comes in handy, altho technically incorrect)  you can get a few items there to make a meal.  ( I wouldn't do this at a lot of Denny's, just the 2 I have been to in this one town near here. When I explained I needed a side dish, to go with 2 plain eggs, they made me a fruit cup out of all fresh fruit. I was really grateful for this. You know how it goes sometimes, when you really need to eat and still have a long trip to reach home.  )  I would not do the hash browns, however, or anything not cooked on a clean surface.  You could pick up cross contamination from the grill, or the hash browns could have had preservatives in them to keep them from browning when frozen.  You are also at the mercy of their food suppliers, they (the kitchen manager)  may order something for the week or the month, but get another product in which is not updated on their menus.

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
