I haven't been there since my diagnosis, but when I contacted corporate I got a definite negative on being able to prepare a gluten free meal. I've steered clear due to their lack of cooperation. However, they did transfer me to their R&D team to place a request for a gluten free menu. I recommend you call and request a menu. If enough of us call, hopefully they'll make one for us.

When I called the corporate office, I got the same response as Ghulia. However, I called and spoke with the manager of my local Fridays. She assured me that they could accomodate me. She seemed to know what I was talking about, suggesting to me that they could clean a section of the grill, and also suggesting various menu items that would work for me. I felt confident enough to go. I requested the manager come to the table while ordering. I ordered a sirloin steak and steamed brocolli (wanted to make it as simple as possible). Everything was great! I felt fine afterward. I should add that I have been gluten-free for 1 year, and this was only the second time I have eaten out. I will definately go back to this Friday's. I would suggest that you call the actual Friday's you plan to visit, and talk to the manager there.

Any luck there, anyone?

Here is the email response I received last year when I asked about a gluten-free menu.

Thank you for visiting our website. As for the difference in menus, unfortunately there are some variations due to regions and franchises.

In the interest of providing our guests with regional food preferences we have different food items available in different areas of the country. Not all items will be available in every area.

I appreciate your comments and hope to see you soon at T.G.I. Friday's.

Sincerely,

Brian

I recently ate at our local Friday's with my 6 yo who is on a gluten free diet. They baked her fries since they do not have dedicated fryers and ensured us that the BBQ suace on her ribs was gluten free. She did not have a breakout afterward (DH). We definately will be going back.

I had a bad experience at my local Friday's and won't go back - however, I have so many foods to avoid, I am amazed when a chain or even any restaurant will actually cook for me - Friday's just isn't one of them.
