Does Anyone Ever Go To Chilli's Restaurant?

Recommended Posts

:rolleyes: Hi everyone! I'm new to this, so bear with me. I'm sure this topic has already been addressed but the last time I went to Chilli's the manager actually went to his office and downloaded their gluten free menu without being impatient with me or acting as though he was bothered--as some restaurant people do. They were very friendly and I didn't have to feel nervous about what I was eating. I hope they are all that way, but that's probably wishful thinking. Anyone else have any experiences with Chilli's?

In my experience--it really pays to be nice to the people in the restaurants--people are much more accomodating and find it difficult to be nasty to you if you kill them with kindness--I'm the kind of person who hates to inconvenience people so it's difficult for me to request special things at restaurants but I've gotten better--but I swear being really nice helps sometimes, even if the person helping you is being a turd.

Our local Chili's is wonderful & the servers are sooooo understanding.. I have never had a bad experience with them. In fact I thought they over did there compassion. But again celiacs don't always get compassion from servers< the usual is they look at you like you are aliens from Silly Yakville , USA.Or that can't possibly make you sick< weido.It is nice to be able to eat out safely once in awhile... I now at times put my guard down & don't ask each time I go in to dine if its been just recently from my last dining there.

I rarely eat out. I have tried the Chili's once here and had a good experience. Although I know of others who have gotten sick at the same Chili's. I look at eating out like gambling, it is a risk. Especially for those of us that are very sensitive.

I get that "your an alien" look a lot. I have three children and it never fails, if we go to a child's birthday party and I have to turn people down for cake they look at me like I'm being a snot and then when I explain why they look at me like I'm crazy. There have been a few times where people were more than understanding, but then they want to ask you 16 thousand questions about it, so I feel like I have answered the same questions a million times, or then I get the comment that "Oh I wish I had

that maybe then I'd lose some weight" See, I'm a size 6/7, but before my diagnosis I struggled to gain weight--I didn't know what my problem was--I was probably a size 1, but I hated it. People just don't understand this is not a diet to lose weight--it's so we don't continue to be sick--I'm grateful for the weight I've put on--after having to explain to people my whole life that no--I am not anorexic or bullimic. Sorry that was a little long winded--this is just the first time I have had the opportunity to talk to people who have what I have. :huh:
