Gluten Free Menus

Recommended Posts

I am so glad that there are restuarants that are becoming more gluten free friendly. I went into Outback Steakhouse for the first time not to long ago and they had a gluten free menu. I was so shocked because I haven't found any other restuarants that do that. Are there more placed with these menus that I don't know about?

Carrabas, Bonefish Grill, Pf Changs, Legal Seafood. There are many, many, many out there.

There are many out there, but there is a difference between listing "allergens" (as many fast food restaurants do) and training the staff on safe preparation practices (like the above mentioned restaurants.)

Eating out is inherently risky though because of cross contamination.

Texas Roadhouse also has a gluten free menu upon request. We have had great success there. For fast food, our favorite is Wendy's. They have a large gluten free menu on their website and it hasn't disappointed us yet!

Does Red Robin have a gluten-free menu? I went to the website and could not find one.

Thanks,

Hez

I thought it was online, but maybe the manager printed it out for me. I usually eat the lettuce-wrap protein burger (just burger, tomato, onion, cheese & lettuce). Comes with a green salad or you can sub fries. Their fries are fried in a dedicated fryer. My son gets a burger with no bun and fries.

Be careful at Wendy's. The one near me is set up so that I can watch the people preparing the food. I usually get a plain jr. cheeseburger because the gloves they would use for lettuce and tomatoes also handles the rolls. I also get a baked potato. They serve the potato wrapped in foil, but cut it open with a knife that has touched who knows what? I ask them not to cut the potato.

I believe Uno's Pizzaria's have Gluten-Free menu's also.

What about McDonalds fries??? My dietician told me I could eat them because they are cooked in their own fryer, but when I went to McDonald's website and looked at the ingredients for the fries, it showed a beef flavoring whick included maltodextrin. I am new to this gluten-free thing, but I am assuming this is a no-no???

If you show your Triumph Dining Card I have found that most places will try and help you. My favorite is Elmo's diner in Cdarrboro, NC next to Chapel Hill if anyone is ever in the area.

The Red Robin we used to go to did not have a dedicated fryer. However, they were happy to do the french fries in a pan with fresh oil so that they would be gluten free for me. Perhaps other Red Robins would be willing to do this as well.

Maltodextrin is not gluten. However... McDonald's fries are a much debated topic here. Apparently the oil used to fry them in at some point contained wheat and milk. McDonald's tells us they are gluten free, although I can not follow the logic they use. Whether they are safe for you to eat or not is something you'd have to decide for yourself. As for the dedicated fryers, that depends on the location. Not all of them have dedicated fryers. And another big issue is cross contamination

Isn't maltodextrin a malt flavoring? My dietician told me to stay away from anything containing maltodextrin because of the "malt".

Does anyone know if Macayo's is gluten-free friendly?? My boyfriend is having a meeting there today and he doesn't want to get glutened. We're both really new to the gluten-free diet. Are there any staples you can get at any resturaunt that are safe, or do they have to be really specific?

Any info will help. Thanks so much!!!
