I emailed TGI Fridays to find out what gluten-free options they offer, and I got an email back saying that I can ask for a gluten-free menu when I get to the restaurant. They don't have the menu online, and I'd like to know what my options are going to be before I get there. Does anyone know what is on their gluten-free menu?

I'm going to be traveling in a little while, and will be forced to eat out a lot for about a week. I'm just trying to come up with a few safe places to try.

Thanks!

I would be careful of cc, especially frying in the same oil as breaded stuff. Appleby's has a gluten-free menu that clearly states at the bottom that the fried items they listed as gluten-free aren't as they are fried with the many non gluten-free items.

We have a travel thread and a restaurant thread you might get some ideas from.

I was there recently (not my choice, but made do).....their "gluten free menu" was 2 pages of allergens which included wheat but not gluten. On the back page, there were "gluten intolerant" options. Mostly grilled things, salads, etc. There were several things to choose from, though. I had a steak, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. I did remind the server to please have them clean a section of the grill before cooking my steak and use clean utensils when putting the sides on my plate.

It was tasty, and I had no problems.

Thanks Patti. It's so strange that they don't put their allergen menu online, but at least I know I would have a couple of options if I got stuck there.

And thanks Kareng, I've been looking through the other boards too! :)

I wouldn't be at all at ease eating from the so-called gluten free menu at TGI Friday's. My experience there is that what's on the gluten-free menu online doesn't have anything to do with the current menu and the staff is not well trained. Eat there at higher risk than in some place like Outback (although cheaper).

Funny story! We went there when I was still undergoing testing. I forgot to ask the hostess so when the waiter came by I asked if they had a gluten free menu. He said no but they did have a list of allergens and apologized for not having a menu He then proceeded to tell me his daughter was gluten intolerant and we chatted a bit about the difficulty eating out. He brings me the menu and on the back page where options very clealy labeled as gluten free options. So, the waiter with a gluten intolerant child didn't even know they had a menu. I would definitely say the staff at our local restaurant was not trained. The options were limited. There are several other options near me that have an extensive gluten free menu so I am not in a rush to go back to Fridays but would likely try them again in the future when they have had a chance to get it better communicated across the staff.

Yeah, I'm not so thrilled with the idea of eating there, but it's one of my husband's favorites, and so I wanted to know if it was even a possibility.
