True story, we went to restaurant while out of town. I told them I was extremely sensitive to gluten, then explained it in detail. I thought they understood. They told me the hamburger steak was safe without the gravy so I ordered that and veggies. When the food arrived I took a big bite of the Hamburger steak and told my husband how good it was. After a few bites a light bulb went off! Oh my gosh this meat has bread crumbs in it! It's TOO tender, something about the texture made me question it! My husband went to the Manager and sure enough it had bread crumbs! What were they thinking when we explained all this and they told me that was wheat free?? Needless to say I got very sick. and was in a lot of pain for days. Now I don't trust eating out. :(

I guess you have to question EVERY thing thing even when they tell you it's safe. BE CAREFUL.

I don't like to eat out anymore. I watched all my friends eat at waffle house the other morning. As I set there, I was disgusted at the things I saw. The bread was cross contaminating everything. Ugh :(

If the waiter or person taking the order doesn't appear educated on Gluten free, the restaurant does not properly educate their staff and stay away. Take Jason's Deli for example. The person who carries out your food was able to explain to me that they brought me packaged chips so they don't risk someone not changing their gloves and reaching into the bag. All she does is carry the food out and she gets it. So ask questions when you go out to test their knowledge. Fast food places I try questions like, "Do you cook the fries in a separate frier?" Sometimes the person will reply by asking if I am gluten free. That is a good sign! Another good question is, "What gluten free salad dressings do you have?" Uneducated people don't usually know there can be gluten in salad dressings. Then start making a safe restaurant list in your local area. It has way more to do with the management than with the menu, any restaurant can create a gluten free item.
