Staff is Fantastic!!! Regarding allergies, too difficult to read through a manual to determine what to eat. In comparison to most restaurants, they lack allergy acknowledgement for specific allergies within the menu.

This was a unique experience for us. There was no gluten-free menu, or marked menu items, but the manager sat down with us and an allergens binder, and went over the safe-to-eat menu items with us. He was very friendly, very helpful, and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable eating here. If you eat here, ask for Jason (the manager).

Notes


"As America’s Favorite Neighbor, the health and safety of our guests are top priorities at Applebee’s. As part of our commitment to you, we provide the most current allergen information available from our food suppliers on eight common allergens plus gluten and added monosodium glutamate (MSG), so that our guests with food allergies can make informed food selections. 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 other food products. Due to these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee that any menu item can be completely free of allergens."

So little available gluten free and no certainty that they understood enough to be careful.

Had not been to an Applebee’s for several years because of lack of awareness of staff. But they now have several options on the menu - many of them are fried so I didn’t consider them. But I got the grilled chicken and thought it was excellent. I would try it again.

My favorite meal is the Fiesta lime chicken. However, if you have celiac, order this WITHOUT the tortilla strips. While they are naturally gluten free, they fry them themselves with other foods (such as the breaded chicken). I have been told by the staff many times that the tortilla strips are safe for me to eat, only to have the answer change when I ask if they're fried with anything else. This item is listed as gluten free without an changes needed, so beware - this may be the same with other "gluten free" options on the menu.

The menu is “gluten sensitive” and is not suitable for anyone who has celiac and a severe reaction to gluten.
