Chili's Near Milwaukee Zoo

Recommended Posts

Well, we've been afraid to go out to eat since our four year old had to start a gluten-free casein-free diet. But finally we ran out of options. We were on day trip to Milwaukee, WI and only had enough food brought along for lunch, so we decided to try dinner at Chili's. This is on Bluemound Rd, near the Milwaukee Zoo. Their website provides monthly updated menus for both gluten-free and casein/milk free dining and recommends that you ask to speak to the manager. I told our waiter what we were looking for and he sent the manager to our table. The manager was great and went over the menus with us. After the waiter took our order, the manager went over the order to make sure everything we ordered would be safe for us (the whole family has gone gluten-free-CF to prevent cross table eating accidents). The manager then went back and cooked the entire meal HIMSELF so that he could ensure that no one touched a bun and then touched our food etc. The burgers were grilled on aluminum foil to prevent cross cont. He assured us that he does this on a regular basis and that it was no problem. It was a fantastic meal and everyone went home satisfied and healthy. :) Alexis

Isn't that nice of the manager to do that! I'm so happy that your day didn't end in a disaster because of an unfriendly resturant. Heaven knows they're enough of them.

I have found Chilli's to be a good option for me. The wait staff is clueless (my experience). Contact the manager and they will provide a current list of gluten free items.
