    Their GF menu is just an allergy chart. It's hard (confusing) to order. I'm not real impressed. I've been twice and haven't been sick. But the worry over what to order takes the fun out of the experience. I'd much prefer a GF menu that outlines what I can eat in a straightforward fashion. That removes the guesswork about ingredients on individual dishes.

    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.

    They no longer have a GF menu. They have a book of about 30 pages of EVERY ingredient they use and it shows if it has Gluten in it or not. It would literally take about an hour just to read, figure out, and piece together something to eat.

    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.

    They don't offer many gluten free options in there menu. Don't trust the Applebee's restaurant chain allergen list at this location. They use the same fryer for everything. So the fries and nachos are not gluten free. The service is also slow. The waiter didn't check on us much, didn't ask if we wanted Deseret, and didn't have check books for your receipt. Don't go here!

    This restaurant does not offer a gluten free menu, therefore you have to search their Allergen list for your meal. I ordered the Fiesta Lime Chicken, which their allergen menu claims is wheat-free. We also ordered chips and salsa. This was put in as a Car side to go order. So we picked it up and left before looking at what they gave us. BIG MISTAKE. First, I had ordered chips and salsa and they gave us chips and spinach and artichoke dip, which is NOT gluten free. Second, our food was cold. Third, they did not give us silverware. And to top in all off, even after specifying I have a gluten allergy, apparently they we're not careful and I ended up having a reaction. I do not recommend eating here. Maybe things would have been different if we had eaten in the restaurant. But I won't be chancing it!

    They can't guarantee safety with cross contamination. However the manager did say that chicken is cooked on a separate part of the grill. She also said she would open a new butter for a baked potato. Potatoes only are cooked in the steamer. My son still did not feel safe eating here & chose not to.

    I would not recommend this place to anyone with any food allergy. Everything about the interaction raised red flags. Poor training. Poor service. Poor understanding of allergens. The only thing that was rehearsed by the staff was a limitation of liability statement where they tell you basically no precautions can be taken. It would be best if they just put the sign up that says we won't accommodate patrons with food allergies. Honestly that would be the real truth in advertising.

    I was given a gluten free menu but when inquiring further about how certain items were prepared, many of those items were obviously contaminated enough to make someone with celiac quite sick. Be careful here. I let them know about it but I haven't been back to see if they do anything differently now.
