Have gone in twice. The first time was great, manager came and talked to me about my order and was great with making sure the staff took precautions with my meal. The second time however, ordering something that should be super simple to keep gluten free, I got glutened. Obviously depends on who is working on how much they care about dietary restrictions and allergens. I won’t chance it again.

Very limited gf menu and you have to cross reference a book to figure out what you can eat. It narrows down to just a handful of items.

They have a BINDER with menu items' ingredients. They only had baked potatoes for my Celiac daughter. WHY is it on the list?

i have been here several times and they are always very accommodating. one time I got the quesadilla burger and they willingly made it with corn tortillas instead of flour. their burger have good flavor so eating it without the bun isnt so bad.

Last time I had went, the staff was not entirely sure what I could have, she had given me the allergen binder which was good, but from what I saw and read all I could have there was the steamed broccoli and applesauce. Maybe they have more items now, but there was not much of a variety.

The menu has “GS” (gluten sensitive) next to the items that don’t have any gluten ingredients in them. When I asked my server if there were dedicated fryers or spaces for preparing gluten free foods she said no. I had the corn chips and queso which was good and then the riblets for my meal. Fries that came with meal were not in dedicated fryer, so I asked for just the riblets and was still charged for the fries. Probably won’t be back here as it was too risky as someone with celiac.

Manager was knowledgeable, but also gluten sensitive herself. (I called ahead). Staff was not knowledgeable but did mark that I had a gluten allergy on the menu. Limited food options but there were still some decent choices.

I'm an hour in and no rumbles. I will edit later if I did get hit.

My wife just found out she has Celiac so it’s been an adjustment to find places we all like that give her good options. I found Applebee’s menu online and you can select different allergens and it will show you what’s available for you to choose from. She had a steak, broccoli and baked potato and loved it. The kid menu was fun, they get to pick the main course a side and their drink. It was good for our family.

Advertising gluten sensitivity menu items, but when I went to order, was told they take NO precautions for allergy issues due to liability concerns. Won’t be back. I didn’t choose to have food allergies. It’s not hard to make a bit of an effort to protect me.
