Wendys chili, baked potato and frosty all on their gluten free menu..Do I dare??? Anyone eat this stuff? I haven't eaten in any restaurant in over 6 months. Sometimes it would be nice to eat out while out shopping. Anyone know of any safe places to eat in the Kansas City area?

I was not aware that Wendy's had gluten free options until I read on Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Twitter acct. that she ate there with her family after going to a pumpkin patch. She is on The View and has celiac disease. I thought if she eats there, it must be safe..right? I'm nervous to do so though.

I was happy to learn their Chili was gluten-free, that was one thing I used to get on the run a lot. I guess you could just try it, maybe some others will answer your post to see if anyone else had issues.

I'm in KC.

pf Changs at the Plaza

Waldo Pizza

Haven't done it yet, but 5 Guys

I have gotten potato and chili at Wendy's I ask them not to open the potato. I put the chili on the potato.

DQ ice cream but don't get any mixed things like milkshake or Blizzards as the risk of cc is great.

Jaspers - ask to talk to the chef, sometimes they have gluten-free pasta, too

BRGR in PV at Corinth

People tell me Chick Fil A has good options

Spin does gluten-free pizza but when it's busy, there is a lot of flour flying

If you go when it's not super busy like a Sat night, you will always be safer.

HyVee has more gluten-free items than WF. You can get a list on line of all of the HyVee brands that are gluten-free.

Hi neighbor! KC area here too! I love Hyvee! Whats BRGR in Prairie Village? We can't to go Chick Filet or PF Changs due to nut allergy. I heard Waldo Pizza was safe but the idea of them making a mistake scares me!

I called Zarda BBQ after reading on their sauce bottles that it was gluten-free. I asked if the food was gluten-free they told me beans all meat and salad bar was..I got sick as a dog there.

Thanks for the info on Jaspers. I also heard that Jess And Jims (martin city i think) is safe but I am too chicken to try any of them yet.

Waldo does a good job. The local Celiac group had a teen meeting there so I thought I would try. They act very casual about it but they have 5 gluten-free beers and I always see someone else have a gluten-free pizza.

BRGR is basically expensive burgers with a gluten-free bun and dedicated fryer. Don't go when busy.

Not sure about Jess & jims. Haven't been in years and was never impressed with the service.

Gates sauce that you get at the store is gluten-free. Like Zarda, I wouldn't think they would do a good job keeping crumbs in check at the restaurant.

I was told that Taste in old downtown OP does gluten-free.

Have we bored everyone in the rest of the country yet?

THe baked potatoe and frosty are some of my standards when I'm out doing errands or working on the road. I always explain my "allergy" (even though its not an allergy) and they always change their gloves. I have not done good with their Chili. I am very sensitive to CC. But, in the summer, my kids love when we get to go and have a Frosty! Fun times.

There is a PF Changs in the southern part of KC. Regarding your peanut allergy. You ought to contact the corporate office regarding your peanut allergy and see what they say is safe for you. We love PFChangs. They do more than any other resturant that I know of to keep allergans out of the food when needed.

Also, the Outback up by the Airport does a good job. I always go right when they first open (at 4) and try not to go when they are busy. They are not open for lunch. I think there are more Outbacks, but we've only eaten at the one by the Airport.

Good luck!

I'm in Canada but I eat Wendy's chili fairly frequently - it's a great standby as we travel around with the kids for hockey. It's nice to have a go to meal/snack that I can trust - something hot. I pack food all the time but the chili is nice to sit down to - if I'm hungry I get the baked potato too. I believe I got glutened once by the chili - out of about 20 times eating it...fairly sure but it could have been something else.

I love DQ sundaes in the summer ! Another go to gluten-free treat...in a place where other folks can get something as well.

yes i work at wendy's everything on the gluten free menu is fine, and if you tell them you have an allergy they will change their gloves and prepare everything on an extra clean surface so there is no cc

    • Hi kelzz..........the only way you will find out if the increase is from gluten exposure is to have your doctor run the correct test.  I have said this a million times on this forum but I will say it again.....the DGP/IgA tests for reaction to gluten ingested. The tTg/IgA tests for intestinal damage and that can be elevated from other autoimmune diseases, or from ingested gluten.  So you are either being glutened in sneaky ways OR you may have another autoimmune issue going on. Sorry my answer is so late but I have been on vacation. I hope this information helps you!
    • Ok, so long story, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable folks can chime in and tell me if a) I'm not crazy for thinking this sounds a lot like celiac and not a lot like anything else and  are the tests being run the right ones? I had malabsorbtion symptoms my whole life, rashes on the inside of my elbows and knees, chronic constipation, chelisis, brittle cracking nails, my hair sheds a ton, irritation on the edges of my scalp, blistery rashes on my hands, low iron, low blood sugar, bloating, painful gas (like bring me to my knees type). I pretty much just accepted it as my normal, and when I went to get the skin issues checked out in my early 30s, I was just told it was eczema and sent away. The rashes on the insides of my elbows and knees went away when I was about 15 or so, but in my 20s I started seeing a blistery, itchy rash on my elbows occasionally. Fast forward to 2015, and I have a terrible outbreak of GI symptoms (always constipation with me, with the occasional horrible D experience sprinkled in) along with a pretty bad itchy rash on both elbows. I start researching and find that a lot of what I have experienced sounds like DH/celiac. By the time I get my referral in and appointment to the GI doc, I've decided to cut milk out of my diet. I thought back to when I had the last period of time where I had no GI symptoms, and it was when I was last deployed. The dairy in the chow hall was either expired or near it, so I lived on eggs, rice, and chicken, and hot sauce. ;p. Once I cut out milk, and I saw a pretty impressive relief of most of my symptoms. The chelisis is gone, my rash disappears, bloating is much better, gas pains are gone. I get tested for celiac- negative, lactose intolerance- negative, SIBO- positive. Two rounds of antibiotics 6 months apart and my SIBO (methane type) clears up. Basically they said I had IBS-C and my skin issues were likely unrelated. I'm pretty sure my issue with milk is casein-related, because my son has the same issues with casein, and I sure have GI issues when I drink it. (TMI... mucousy rabbit poo). So I figure most of my issues have cleared up, no active rashes, good right? Nope. Since then, I had a couple outbreaks on my elbows, but they went away fairly quickly, My scalp rash thing ebbed and flowed, and my hair still sheds a ridiculous amount. About a month ago, I had another rash outbreak on both elbows, a couple blisters on my hands... and it stayed. After a month of rash, I finally contacted my doc and said "look, this rash is active, please take a look." Just as if it sensed it, the rash started clearing, that same day. :-< By the time I saw her a week and a half later, it was gone, save for a couple scabs. So, good news is my doc disagreed with the GI doc and said it sounded auto-immune to her. I'm military, so I get what I get for referrals, labs, and doctors, but she's luckily very good and knowledgeable. She ran the following tests: Complement Panel: Awaiting results C-Reactive Protein: Awaiting results Celiac Disease Ab IgA Panel: Awaiting results Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA: Awaiting results
      Gliadin Ab IgA: Awaiting results Endomysial Ab IgA: Awaiting results Rheumatoid Factor: NEG Comprehensive Metabolic Panel W/eGFR: Normal with the exception of a higher than normal Urea Nitrogen/Creatinine (indicates poor kidney function or bleeding in intestines (ding ding ding) My GFR was normal, so kidneys are probably okay. ESR: 9 (normal is 0-20) Indicates inflammation  
    • I've tried 3 shampoos and a skin cream, sorry can't recall names! It can keep it under control but I want to know why it happened in the first place. I was already gluten-free, and never had it in my life beforehand. Just looking for a magic cure
    • There isn't a cure that I'm aware of. Mine is much, much better since I went gluten free but it's liable to recur, especially if I get run down. Nizoral is most effective shampoo but it contains wheat protein so take care!
    • Currently, a gluten-free diet is the only way to manage celiac disease. Can a celiac vaccine change that? One company thinks so. ImmusanT corporation has developed a therapeutic vaccine, Nexvax2, that is specifically designed to treat celiac disease. The vaccine is an adjuvant-free mix of three peptides that include immunodominant epitopes for gluten-specific CD4-positive T cells. The vaccine is designed to neutralize gluten-specific CD4-positive T cells to further antigenic stimulation. View the full article
