More Restaurants

Here are some more restaurants with gluten-free items on their menus.

Chili's Restaurant
I really do appreciate companies who take the time to identify the allergens in their foods. It is so frustrating to not know what is in something. Chili's has a page for each of the big-8 allergens and their listings "expire" each month so they are up to date. But it is still frustrating for someone trying to figure things out when they include statements like this (for all 8 allergens)

We have prepared this suggested list of menu options based on the most current ingredient information from our food suppliers and their stated absence of wheat/gluten protein within these items. Please be aware that during normal kitchen operations involving shared cooking and preparation areas, including common fryer oil, the possibility exists for food items to come in contact with wheat/gluten proteins. Additionally, fried food items could pick-up wheat/gluten proteins during the cooking process. Therefore, we recommend that individuals with dietary allergies and intolerances avoid all fried foods. Due to these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee that any menu entrée below can be completely wheat/gluten-free.

Chick-Fil-A - Gluten
Chick-Fil-A - Allergies
I don't live near a Chick-Fil-A now but I sure wish I did. Or I used to wish I did, anyway. My favorite thing there is the Chick-Fil-A Sandwich and clearly that is breaded in flour so definitely out. They did have some interesting info on their website. Probably more helpful for my son's allergies than for me.

Wow! Chick fil A really does give some great info on their website! Thanks for the heads-up. I'll need to check out more restaurant websites - I've pretty much just avoided eating out all together (might be part of the reason I've lost weight!:)

Also, thanks for the kind words you left on my blog. We've been having a rough go of things and I appreciate your support. This allergy thing really took us by surprise and has thrown us for a bit of a loop. We're working though it though and finding that it can be done with some forward thinking and better preparation for the week's meals.

Thanks again!
