Does anybody know if Carrabas or Applebees is gluten free? Do you know a place?

Applebees was so unknowledgeable about cross contamination and safe Gluten free food preparation that I left without eating there.

Outback is safe for Celiacs.

I haven't been to Carrabas, but have heard it is good for gluten-free.

When I last looked at Appleby's gluten-free menu, it wasn't really very gluten-free. For example, it listed fries as gluten-free. If you read the small print in another part of the menu, it mentioned that the fries are cooked with all the gluten coated chicken nuggets, onion rings, etc. That means, the fries are gluten-free if you eat them before they are cooked (fried).

Carrabas is gluten free familiar and they are very good about your meal. It's a great treat for me. :) But, an hour and a half away..thus the treat. :)

I would not recommend Appleby's as being safe.

From a squib on the 'net, Carrabas appears to have some knowledge about gluten, and a gluten free menu.

I found a listing a while back of restaurants that have gotten very good reviews for their gluten handling, but cant' find my way back to the page! Here is another, from Travelsite.com...they have a listing of numerous restaurants that can be navigated by gluten-free eaters.

PF Chang's is supposed to be good, Bonefish and Legal Sea Foods get really high marks as well.

These apply to the chain restaurants. You could probably look up large local eateries and find a menu online (google for the restaurant name and "gluten free menu"). Or call ahead and ask, you can learn from a phone call whether they will be trustworthy or not. Saves a lot of stress.

Carraba's is part of the Fleming Restaurant group, so they will know their gluten-free business. I've eaten at Carraba's and the waitress was well educated.
