This website is intended for people who are trying to remove gluten from their diet for non-medical reasons.
If you’re on a medical gluten free diet, have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, or are Celiac, use the information on this site at your own risk.
Although this website was made to be as accurately as possible, it’s truly only intended for people who don’t have any medical issues with wheat or gluten.
Thank you for your understanding.
READ THIS TOO
Not everyone is perfect and I’m definitely not.
You see, although these restaurants provide gluten free menu items, they do encourage anyone with food sensitivities, allergies, or special dietary needs to consult with a medical professional for informed answers relating to their specific sensitivities and the risks involved when dining out.
Also be aware that some food will be in the presence of items that contain gluten, such as at sandwich shops and delis, so please be advised and use caution.
Now in terms of accuracy, all these menus have come directly from the restaurants themselves.
As a result, if there are issue please understand that I am just a middle man who researches and publishes the information that has been provided to me.
If I made a mistake, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment on the post and I’ll be sure to fix it as soon as possible.
Thank you for understanding.
And one more thing, most of this information is intended for the non-medical gluten-free dieters primarily because there’s really no risk of cross contamination involved for gluten free dieters, unlike those who have major allergies, sensitivities, or Celiac.
Here’s some official, lawyer stuff below…

Thank you for the info. I actually ask to see the label on the product in question. The McD store fries here in mi DO contain wheat. I do not order anything that has been grilled do to cross contamination with the buns on the grill. This will make me very ill.
I’m glad this info was able to help Victoria, and thanks for the extra info!
Many large chains such as “The Cheese Cake Factory” now offer a GF menu, but BEWARE!!! The waiters and cooks don’t seem to be as knowledgeable as necessary to keep me “SAFE.” Note the GF pasta is penne, if they bring anything else question it. The Artichoke is prepped with a gluten containing marinade and if you ask for them to grill it plain, they bring you a cold, hard, inedible meal. They are too ignorant to think creatively and I don’t think they’re allowed to do that anyway. As a very sensitive Celiac I still have to look out diligently,
to stay healthy.
thanks for the info Mindy!
Wow. You sound like an asshole. Perhaps you shouldn’t expect minimum wage workers to have the knowledge of doctors.
Celiac in Chicago
Eating out when you have celiac disease is incredibly difficult. We don’t expect the people preparing our food to understand our illness, but WE DO EXPECT THEM TO UNDERSTAND FOOD. That IS their job.
Thank you for much good advice here. I want to point out a small error. “…for people who are trying to remove gluten free from their diet” probably should not have the word “free” there. I appreciate your efforts.
thanks Lisa, I went ahead and made the chance (…just 2 months later haha)
Was in bk asked for a gluten free meal they looked at me if i was daft did not know what i was asking for made me look stupid and everybody was looking at me i asked for a burger without the bun they bib not know how to charge me for it in the end i got one but dont know if i would go back in again
The Smashburger at Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills, Illinois has a dedicated gluten free frier for french fries.
Oops fryer not frier
thank you for all these helpful comments im just so nervous because my gluten free is due to allergies but along with that im allergic to all fruit. I hate i cant eat anything lol and i want pizza so bad but im too nervous to take a chance what do you think?
At Hard Rock Cafe, San Francisco, if you are Celiac, they have a dedicated cutting board (purple) and one dedicated chef working on your meal. The one at Downtown Disney, will also work with you, also. So do not be afraid to ask at other Hard Rock Cafes. The only one I would not try, is the one in Hollywood, the waiter was nice, but had not a clue what I was talking about. ?
There are two 100% Gluten Free restaurants in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area. I’ve been to one so far….she doesn’t allow outside food into her restaurant…and the food is awesome :Weezie’s 100% Gluten Free Kitchen 1321 East Commercial Blvd., Oakland Park, FL. 33334 http://www.weeziesgfkitchen.com/

I have 2 Free apps on my tablet that I LOVE that help me make gluten free decisions when I am searching for an eatery or shopping for food. 1- GLUTEN FREE FOOD FINDER which lets you scan the barcode of any product and it will let you know if has gluten in it. 2- FIND ME GF which uses the GPS on your device and then gives you a list of eateries that have gluten free options. I am extremely sensitive to gluten! One iota gluten in my system and I can not swallow at all. I am also one of the sub-group of gluten sensitive people that is sensitive to all mammal products (meat, milk, gelatin, etc.) so I have to be extremely careful.
My Subway does not offer any gluten free bread. Plus, I have had a bad gluten reaction there when I had some of their meat with a salad. They will pick up a bunch of meat for a regular sub, and if they have too much, put the meat back and then that meat is no longer gluten free! So now, I just have a salad, no proteins with it. And I make sure they have new gloves when they prepare my food.
