In Topic: Carrabbas Updating gluten-free Menu

15 February 2015 - 07:32 PM

We ate there again late last night (yes I know, Valentines day) But we went almost at close so they weren't busy. It was great food again and no cross contact. We had the caprese salad and the chicken trio (chicken marsala, chicken bryan, and rosa maria) and we shared it. We also shared the Johnny Rocco shrimp salad that is a main dish.  The staff was very accommodating.  When we went a few weeks ago, we went to a different one in Chandler, and they did a good job too. This one we went to last night is in Mesa AZ and it was just as good.

We ate Carrabbas for the first time a few weeks ago. We are very sensitive to cross contact, and did not get sick. It was great food too! Our server was knowledgeable - which is always reassuring :) We will be back.

I know this is old ... but thought I'd chime in.

 

Silver Dollar City. We love the berries and cream (ice cream stand with strawberries) everything in the ice cream stand is gluten-free. Frozen Lemonaid is gluten-free; Kettle corn like someone else said is gluten-free; The sausage skillet medley is gluten-free; we have tried it;  It is at the Tater Patch Skillet . none of us got sick and we ate it for 2 days. Needed something protein and it worked.  They only think the cook in that big ole skillet is the sausage skillet medley thing. We have done the preorder gluten-free food delivery service (it seems as if it is frozen) they send it to a pre-specified restaurant at a certain time. We did not care for it. We tried pretty much everything they had on the gluten free menu and we didn't like any of it (and I'm not picky, and my kids aren't really either). The pizza was our favorite of all the items, but still not great.

 

Cantina Laredo in Branson - We have one of these back home in Arizona. We like their food. It seems like it is a little hit or miss here (we have 2 of them, and I prefer one over the other ... probably due to management and training of staff). The one I prefer we do good at and haven't gotten sick from cross contact.  It is clearly marked on their menu what items are gluten-free; We love the fajitas!

 

Last time we were there we stayed at a campground in our RV and cooked almost all of our meals except while at SDC.  So, we didn't eat out that much on our last trip. But it seems like Branson is getting more and more options as the years go on! When we started eating gluten-free 6 years ago, there wasn't a lot of choices in Branson. We love it! One of our favorite vacation spots!

Thanks for the info! We were actually thinking of maybe trying their gluten free menu. I'm happy to know they are moving in the right direction! And education is the key!


In Topic: Papa Murphy's New gluten-free Offering

23 January 2015 - 08:17 AM

We went to the Gluten Free Expo last weekend in Phoenix. Huge Expo. Lots of yummy samples and educated people to talk to re Celiac and Gluten free. One HUGE exception. Papa Murphy's was there, handing out "gluten free pizza samples". They had an oven there they were cooking them in. I figured since they were at the Gluten Free Expo, they would of made some changes. Just as my daughter and I were about to try the pizza they gave us, they guy causally said "if your celiac you can't eat our pizza". REALLY? Your at a gluten free expo and we can't eat your pizza? I asked about their practices of prepping for this particular event, and why we couldn't have it. He said all the pizzas they were serving that day were made in their stores, around gluten, and separate utensils and sauce and toppings were not used to prep these pizzas. Really?  Why in the world were they at the worlds largest gluten free expo that travels to so many large cities? Even if you are "gluten sensitive" or "gluten allergy" their pizza is not safe for you.  Maybe if you were just trying to avoid gluten? I don't know. But they should not of been there.
