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):

http://www.dennys.com/LiveImages/enProductImage_691.PDF

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.

    • Itchy skin
      Cool compresses may help a bit. Hot baths or showers used to really aggravate my itchy skin so go with warm or cool ones to see if it helps. Keep well hydrated both inside and out. Be sure to check and make sure any lotions you use are gluten free. Shea butter, olive or coconut oil may help. Since you say this is not DH, no blisters etc. I would not advise Dapsone. It is quite a toxic med but if you do talk to your doctor about it make sure that they do blood work before prescribing and frequently during the time you are on it.  Some celiacs have liver impact and Dapsone can be damaging to the liver. I also had both DH and the all over itchies. Being strictly gluten free and avoiding obvious sources of iodine like iodized salt or iodine in supplements will help you heal. I hope you get some relief soon.
    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
