I spoke with a manager at our local Chicago cheesecake factory yesterday and he had just received a phone call from corporate advising him that in 6 months Cheesecake Factory would be launching a new gluten free menu.

That's is interesting. I loved the Cheesecake Factory. I just hope they take proper precautions while preparing the meals. Who knows when it's new. I probably wouldn't eat there for a few months after they first started... haha.

We went to the Cheesecake Factory in Kansas City, MO for dinner on Sat., July 31. We specifically mentioned that my husband is very sensitive to Gluten and please make sure his order is gluten free when we ordered. My husband ordered the steak and steamed broccoli and asked for no seasoning but salt and pepper. The steak was great. However, when my husband worked on the broccoli in the separate dish, he saw a piece of noodle in the bottom of the dish. So, we asked for the manager about how exactly the broccoli was prepared. He told us that the broccoli was actually boiled in the noodle pot, but he could ASSURE us that my husband shouldn't feel a thing due to his experience of serving other Gluten free customers the same broccoli. He didn't apologize for the mistake at all but told us that we could call back to the restaurant if my husband did feel ill the next day. I was very upset by his attitude of careless and neglect. My husband started feeling fatigue and foggy headed on the way home. He had a important business meeting on Monday and he needed to prepare for the seminar he was giving. At that point, he had no condition to do any preparation. I filed a complaint through the corporate website. All we wanted is for them to aware of the problem and admit their mistake. How else are they going to learn about Gluten?! How can we trust the "Gluten Free" menu if they didn't know what it mean?!

I wish I had known before you went. That one messed up regular orders that aren't gluten-free so I would not expect them to handle special requests well.

I've always been led to believe that Cheesecake Factorys were not safe for any celiac because they refused to offer up any gluten free items. Your husband is much more daring then I ever have been in my 6 1/2 years as a Celiac...especially if I know that I have something important to do that week..you wouldn't catch me eating out anywhere! It's nice that they are considering a gluten free menu but until they do a complete overhaul of their kitchen and how it operates, I doubt I'll try it.

We went to Cheesecake Factory today for my son's birthday. When we were seated I asked if they had a gluten-free menu and the waitress said they didn't have anything gluten-free. I asked, specifically, nothing gluten-free? She said besides the salads, dry, they couldn't offer me anything. I was so put off by this statement, "they couldn't offer me anything." I asked about the salad dressing, ranch and she said every one of their dressings had gluten. She asked me if I really needed gluten-free, I wanted to get up and walk out but didn't because I wasn't going to spoil my 6 year olds day. I ended up ordering the Ahi salad, dry. It contained lettuce, tomato, avocado and ahi. It was good, even with EVOO and Balsamic but the lack of help just about killed me. On a $100 bill, she got a small tip. I get every restaurant won't provide a gluten-free menu but the lack of menu support by the staff is the part that kills me.

Wouldn't you rather they be honest then attempt to help you out and you get sick from it? I know that I would!

    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?    
    • https://okinawahai.com/tips-for-eating-gluten-free-in-okinawa/ Hope this helps!
    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.
