In Topic: What's Your Favorite Gluten Free Restaurant?

28 March 2015 - 08:27 AM

I have had luck at Perkins and Applebees. I know that many would say not to eat at these places but I have educated the two that I go two and they will actually clean the area of the grill before cooking on it now and the Fiesta Lime chicken is otherwise gluten free and the pork chops with salt and pepper is OK at Perkins (if you can get them to clean the grill). 


I have also liked going to Chipotle. Papa Murphy's gluten free pizza at my location is safe as they use a separate station to make the pizza, though you are limited to veggies and pepperoni. 


Not a restaurant, but Burning Brothers Brewery is 100% gluten free. You go to their brewery/taproom they don't let gluten of any source into their facility. You can sit down and have a beer, cupcake, chips...ect  and it's all great and gluten-free. Plus the owner of the brewery has celiac disease so he knows what gluten-free for celiacs is.

Chipotle.  My DS is allergic to dairy and has Celiac and eats there from time to time. 

Yeah, I eat at Chipotle for my mexican fix. Not quite the same as a traditional place but it works and it is good. 


However, care for CC does vary from location to location. I've been to some Chipotle's that will go into great detailed care to avoid CC and others where the people seem completely unaware of the procedures needed.

The problem I have found with most Mexican places is that they are not really aware of the problem people can have with gluten. 


They do have many things at most Mexican places that are naturally gluten free but because there is no care for CC you can't eat there. At most places you should be able to eat hard shell tacos, but you don't know if the spices have flour in them. You should be able to eat the chips but you don't know what else is fried in the same oil......ect. 


It would actually be fairly easy to make the places OK for Celiacs if basic care for CC was taken. The issue is that a lot of the places here are not fluent English speaking or just simply don't even know what I'm talking about.

Namaste sells big bags of gluten free flour at Sam's Club or Costco pretty cheap (for gluten free stuff) and they have a really good recipe for brownies on their website. They are my go to baked sweets now days.

I will warn that when dealing with kids, even the top Celiac Dr's see this differently.  I don't see the childs age posted but if they are younger then it's seen as a different ballgame in some regards.

No, is should not be any different for kids. One thing in a face of several others shouldn't exclude a DX. Has nothing do with being a kid or not.
