Review


I was diagnosed with celiac 10 years ago. I have never eaten at a Chili’s restaurant before, this was to be the first time. Appeared to be a safe choice based on the reviews in “Find me GF”. My wife and I walked in and were greeted by the hostess. As the hostess was grabbing the menus to seat us, I asked for a gluten-free menu. Her response was, “A what?”. I repeated my request for a gluten-free menu, she said “I don’t know anything about that, you’ll have to ask somebody else”. She sat us in a booth and said our server it would be right with us. Looking over the menu I saw nothing on it that indicated whether anything was gluten-free or not. My wife is also looking over the menu with the same puzzled look on her face that I had. I grab my phone and went to the Chilies website to review their GF menu. There they listed gluten-free options like baby back ribs without any sides, a hamburger without a bun... They also mentioned that the kitchen was not gluten-free, the grill and the fryers were shared with items that were not gluten-free. This was not a safe restaurant for somebody with celiac disease. So after my wife and I were sitting there for five minutes with no sign of a server, I decided to bail and we left the restaurant.
