They offer good options, but this particular facility doesn't train their people that they offer GF. Ask for the allergen menu or of they say they don't have it, ask for the red book (they do know what that is). The GF menu is at the back of that.
I'm not impressed with the selection, not even steak can gluten-free because of the seasoning. The list of choices is a very short list. Very short, I wouldn't waste time and money going to the restaurant (I have found that every branch is the same) If I could choose 0 stars, I would.
New menu does not offer many options for GF eating. While the main dish may be lusted as GF, the included side dish may not be. Was not allowed to substitue side. Staff was unknowledable of ingredients. Also I was concerned with cross contamination. The is not a great place for a person with Celiac disease. Additional Comments : Silverware was dirty with food stuck to it and the bathrooms were dirty.
They have an allergen menu I ordered a gluten and soy free chicken salad, because the steaks have soy, but waitress gave me the wrong thing. So the manager came right out and cleared up the confusion right away. The meal I ordered was good. There aren't too many gluten and soy free options on the menu so as long as you are fine with limited options, you'll be happy.
DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC! we asked for a gf menu and they have an entire binder with all menu items listed and all common allergen ingredients checked off so I thought that would make it easier for my daughter to find something safe. However, upon questioning our server about the chicken wings and French fries (which are both indicated as GF on allergen menu), we were told they are cooked in the same fryers as breaded items. Found the fine print at the top of each page saying they cannot guarantee that items are gf because of preparation practices, including the use of common fryers. We asked to speak to the manager just to clarify. I pointed out that the menu states these items are gf but since they cook them in a common fryer they absolutely are not, so for someone with Celiac disease like my daughter that could cause her to become very ill and that the allergen menu is deceptive. He seemed to have no real concern or sympathy. We ended up not ordering anything for her because of the lack of understanding and preparation practices.
No onsite gluten-free menu but they do have a allergen menu list so you can easily figure out of it is good to eat the items you see on the regular menu.
DO NOT EAT HERE! It is not Celiac staff, and servers are very rude!!!! They are easily irritated and start to yell and complain, including smart mouthing you when you ask questions about the food, much less ask her to make the kitchen aware of your needs.
We love it here, we used to get the fiesta lime chicken everytime and loved it, we still get it sometimes for variety. But our new favorite is the riblets with honey barbeque sauce. It comes with really good fries and honey mustard to dip them in. They have many more options as well and have fudge shooters for dessert that are GF as well. Never once have gotten sick and the waitresses are always friendly.
Horrible experience. The manager does give you a menu with nutrition facts like the website has except half the food is listed the allergies after cooking half is listed with it before cooking. Example: steak has gluten and dairy - after Cooking but your not told that, and sweet potato fries are "gluten free" but then cooked in same oil as everything else. They did not explain a single thing and were not very helpful at all! Besides that they brought me the wrong food which I insisted my friend eat so theirs didn't get cold and he was almost done by the time I got the right meal. Then they gave us the bill with both my meal and he meal they brought us which was wrong on the bill. The waitress blamed the chef for the wrong meal and the manager for "ringing it in wrong I knew he would do that" taking no owner ship. And I left with hives and Itchy because they served me cross contaminated food after telling them I'm severely allergic... You can't pay me to go back there
Just ate at the Boone Applebee's February 4, 2016. I had pulled pork salsa verde as an appetizer. I had a rack of ribs with honey bbq sauce and French fries as my entree. All perfectly cooked. All delicious. All gluten free. Had a great time! Absolutely no adverse effects. Enjoy!
It would be helpful if they actually had everything on their gluten free menu. You can't even order a burger without a bun because it isn't considered gluten free in their restaurants. I ended up getting a side of potatoes and fruit. I wanted soup. The soup listed on their gluten free menu is no longer available and none of their others are gf.
I've had the salmon several times. The staff doesn't always seem to know what's going on but thanks to "google" I had an idea what was safe and what wasn't. Like many other places their fries are listed as gf but once placed in their only fryer are no longer safe. Boo!!
They took my order. Hamburgers with Swiss cheese no bun. When my husband's order come out, the waitress told me that they had put the wrong cheese on it and the bun and that it would be just a minute while they redid the order. When I got my meal the hamburger had just been scraped off and turned over put back on the grill and new cheese was put on it and basically burnt the remaining cheese to the bottom of my burger. I didn't feel comfortable eating knowing that it had already come in contact with the bun and has burnt cheese on the bottom. My husband ended up eating my meal. This was not a very good experience. I would have hoped that the kitchen staff would have been taught better about allergies and proper handling instructions. It will be awhile before I try this restaurant again after this experience.
TRIED to eat here... Host told us our waitress would bring the gluten free menu. Took forever for our waitress to even come over, but then they couldn't find the one gluten free menu they had. They brought out their nutritional book that we could look over to find something but that just wasn't going to work for my hungry 12 YO with celiac so we left for the place down the street.
All the waitresess here were uneducated about allergies. The menu doesn't mean you are getting anything prepared to your allergy as they do not have a designated cooking station to prepare GF food. Your food may not contain gluten but will be cross-contaminated. I spoke to the manager then the general manager to advise of my husband and sons high sensitivity to gluten and his response was their grill is at a high temperature, it would burn away the allergy. My response to him was, that's not how gluten works. Heat doesn't burn it away. Applebee's does not have a designated cooking station, is un-educated in the products they serve for allergy sensitivities and there is a good chance you will get sick.
Applebee does not have a gluten free menu. I called before going to this location to confirm a gluten free menu. I was told they have a gluten free menu. Once I arrived there was no gluten free menu. I was offered the ingredient book and hardly any irems marked gluten free. I watched my daughter eat, while I ate nothing.
