Anyone know of any safe places to grab some grub in either the Memphis, TN or Evansville, IN airports? I've got a layover in Memphis this month, and traveling to/from Evansville.

Thanks.

I have not been through these airports, but most airports have only bottled drinks (soda, water, juice) and possibly fresh whole fruit that is gluten free. I always bring at least a meal and a half and snacks when I am traveling by air. Below are links to the airports you will be traveling through.

The Evansville airport food information link is below. Looks like only one place to buy food.

Also, please note that airport food locations generally do not have the full menu that is available at non-airport locations.

Have a good trip.

Corky's is a well known Memphis barbecue place and they have a branch in the airport. I've not had a problem with their barbecue(sans bun ;)) and a websearch for Corky's and gluten free turns up several good hits...especially that the sauce is gluten-free. I did note the pork is cooked over hickory chips and charcoal....recent posters have said gluten may be in some(?) charcoal. You could also eat what we call "pig salad" which is 'cue on a salad........very tasty!

I did have a layover in Memphis, twice, but the listing that Corky's gave me for gluten-free food - none of those items seemed to be on the menu at the airport, so I stuck with my cheese, turkey and crackers (I always freeze lunchmeat and take it out the morning of my flight). And, I called the manager of Food Operations at the airport over three weeks ago asking if they can help. Still waiting on a return phone call.

Corky's: F

Airport food concession operations: F

Steve's gluten free turkey, cheese, crackers and chips: A+

Your grades apply to most airport food concessions. I always assume there is nothing behind the securtiy gates that I can eat.

So sorry,Steve! I have had zero problems with their "wet" pork ribs.

Mempho is pretty uneducated still for celiac.....I just read their labels at Corky's and it vets out for me.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
