Close Call At Chilis

Recommended Posts

We go to Chilis occasionally. They have a wheat/gluten "allergy" menu and I've never had a problem there. Tonight, I ordered my usual... the baked potato soup and a house salad (w/o croutons). Two bites into the salad... I pulled out a tortilla strip!

They were very apologetic and took the salad off the bill... I was already full from the soup and didn't want another. The manager came and told us that he will often take such an order and prepare it himself as he understands/appreciates the need for compliance.

Just another example of how careful the wait staff/managers can be and how easily cross contamination can still ZAP us!!


Living in the beautiful Ozark mountains in Arkansas

positive blood tests and later, positive biopsy

diagnosed 8/5/02, gluten-free (after lots of mistakes!) since that day

Dairy free since July 2010 and NOT happy about it!!
