Applebees

I was wondering if anyone has had experience at Applebees? I usually only get a salad anyway, but sometimes it has chicken or shrimp, would it be safe if I was to ask to make sure it wasnt basted or breaded with anything? Probably wouldnt be able to use dressing though, oh well, I can live without that. I guess this is a silly question seeing as I sort of answered it but I'm gonna post it anyway...

I was at Applebees last Saturday the 26th. I ordered a simple lime grilled chicken. I ended up having to leave fast as I felt really sick in minutes after just eating the chicken fillet. This is the first time this has happened to me in a long time, I am still suffering joint pains and intestinal upset. I don't think I will ever trust Applebee's again, there menu has changed for the worse lately and it is all prepared and covered with sauces or cheese just nothing simple and clear-cut to order there... hope that is a help... Good Luck, Nancy

Applebees is VERY not celiac friendly. I refuse to spend my money there.

Indeed--the general consensus is that Applebees is unaccomodating. Try Outback Steakhouse :)

Yeah I was treated very bad when I went in there. I refuse to go there too. I love the outback you should try there sometime as celiac3270 suggested. :D

Unfortunately I'm at school in Cortland NY, a very small town, we're lucky enough to have gotten an Applebees built last year, there is probably an Outback in Syracuse and there is a Ruby Tuesdays there as well, so the 40 min drive is well worth it in my opinion, thanks for all of the good advice!

We haven't been to our Outback yet, since the Ruby Tuesday's in town has been so fabulous about accomodating our celiac half. The fries (at least at ours) are gluten-free and they make my DH/DS gorgeous bunless burgers and serve them with the foil still underneath them (the first time our server said "so you know we really did listen to you") with extra veggies to dress the plate. Of course, we tip ridiculously, which doesn't hurt!!

I have eaten at Applebees and had no problem. I usually get the caesar salad (no croutons, of course) and ask for salmon rather than the chicken. I put wine vinegar and oil on my salad. Hope this helps.

Remember to talk to your server, the manager, and sometimes the chef about your condition. Just ordering something you know is gluten-free, like plain animals, doesn't mean that they will be careful not to crosscontaminate. They will know they are dealing with a serious issue rather than just regular food.

I have at at Applebees a few times. I always get their steak and have never have had a problem until last weekend. The steak tasted different, and well I got sick.

I have gotten their honey bbq (or something) chicken ppain with veggies and potatoes, and I did not gert sick.

Yes, Applebees is a no-no. I have tried a couple of times with the same reaction ~ SICK! :angry: What do you eat at Ruby Tuesdays?? Last time I ate there I thought they served me all gluten-free items, but I got SO sick afterwards. I am hesitant to go back.

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
