Applebees

Recommended Posts

I have posted a couple of times on this issue but today I got to talk to the manager of the Applebee's I went to last week. I told her about my experience and about what others have had say about Applebee's and she was very apologetic. She said that if I go in there again to ask for her personally and she will take my order to the kitchen and make sure that the staff fix it correctly. She also apologized for the bad experiences that people have experienced in other resturaunts. She said that they are taught to put the customer and their needs first, especially if it is a special diet. She said that she knows that other places may not be willing to work with people on special diets but her store will do that. She even said that they have fixed special meals for patients who have had their stomach stapled and had to have their food a particular way. Just thought I'd share.

I used to work at an Applebee's....in general, they are not good about allergies. Even their chicken breasts have a marinade on them that has soy sauce, which has gluten in it. :( Fries are cooked along with gluten-filled items. All their appetizers, dips, etc. have gluten in them. :(

This is interesting to read - I was there a year or so back and the nice server went through the menu with me - finally we decided on a plain chicken breast and steamed veggies with butter. I was optimistic - but I got sick anyway. I thought for some reason it might be the butter (it wasn't real butter) but I guess it could have been the chicken.

Anyway, I don't recommend - nice service aside.

I've chanced it at Ruby Tuesday's a couple of times and been ok. I get a burger, no bun, or a steak that's not marinated and a baked potato and steamed veggies. I've heard others have gotten sick from the salad bar. Haven't tried it myself.

Guess I'm never going to Applebee's again. Good thing all I ever liked was their veggie patch pizza anyhow.

I ate at applebees a couple weeks ago and had just as much luck. my waitress was nice and wanted to accomidate me, but had no knowledge of gluten. "so is that like sugar??" ugh. so i ordered a salad (don't remember which one) without dressing but still felt icky afterwards. it did have CHICKEN on it, i bet that's what did it. I won't be going back.

To be perfectly honest I thought Applebee's was one of the worst places I ever ate. That was before I was Dx'd with Celiac.

If you're feeling up to the challenge.....I have ordered at Applebees and met with success. Once. I spoke to the manager. I ordered a steak salad with a looooong list of requests. BUT when I went back - my luck was not the same. I have decided it's not worth the risk.

Red Robin on the other hand has been very helpful. Limited options, but they're friendly about it....and (at least at mine) the fries are OK!
