I haven’t had any cross contamination issues so far however the service has never been good and the food has been inconsistent.
New menu had gf by the items. I build a slam: eggs, bacon, hash browns, and gf English muffin.
Independently owned/operated franchise with MANY *GF* options very clearly identified on the menu. Three separate flattop grills; will do "allergy prep" if requested. Sadly, the butter spread is served in condiment cups, not individual packets, so it's not guaranteed GF.
I haven’t been to Denny’s since before I was gluten free and I was pleasantly surprised. The breakfast menu has a large selection of gluten free options including hash browns and English muffin. Our waitress communicated my needs to the kitchen. My English muffin came grilled with butter on the side. I’m only giving 4 stars because the lunch/dinner menu looks much more limited, but this is a good choice for breakfast.
Be careful eating at Denny’s. I ate successfully there on 3 occasions. However, today was not a good experience. I always state to waitress the necessity of eating GF and to please inform the kitchen staff. Halfway through my hash browns there was a quarter size pancake fried within. I talked to Manager and she said they try to be careful and brush down the grill between orders. Denny’s will no longer be an option for me. I’m reviewing the chain, not this specific location.
Denny’s has many foods labeled as gluten free in their menu, such as the nachos and fries, but they are prepared in a way that makes them absolutely volatile for anyone with celiac, and I have become extremely ill many times after eating there. I in no way recommend Denny’s as I have been lied to on multiple occasion about prep, in addition we have been served food that is definitely not gluten free (an English muffin) instead or the gluten free alternative.
The staff wasn’t knowledgeable about gluten free and I would not recommend any Denny’s if one has Celiac disease My salad was ordered gf but came w croutons on it. In addition our grandson ordered the Italian Sampler & the meatball he tried to eat tasted weird which ruined the rest of his meal. I tried their nachos and they did not sit well
There are many new items on the menu that are listed as GF. The gf English muffins for breakfast were delicious. The staff seemed fairly knowledgeable.
Food was mediocre at best and they did not carry the usual Denny’s muffins. Cleanliness of restaurant needed improvement but only 1 server for the location made it difficult to keep up with so it’s understandable. Based on intuition and past experiences with good Denny’s, I would not recommend for celiacs.
Don't bother. They can't even handle non-GF food. First off, I got violently glutened here last year. They had to redo my order three times, and still got me sick. So when my friends decided to go today, I came along and just didn't get any food. Every order had a mistake (including my tea - how do you mess up tea?), the food took over an hour to arrive (the restaurant wasn't even half full), the silverware and dishes were dirty, and when we spoke with the manager, she was extremely condescending. Seriously. Don't bother.
The actual menu lists everything gluten-free! The GF English muffin is delicious! In fact, I requested them to use it as a bun for a burger. The absolute best burger since I’ve had to become gluten free!!! The Philly Cheese Steak Omelette is wonderful too! Oh, then top it off with a sundae. It’s like getting to eat at a real restaurant again!
Be very careful of this Denny's I ordered gluten free breakfast items and was assured it was all gluten free.. I advise them I was a coeliac, and the wait staff all said they didn't know what that was. I watch as my GF skillet was made as seen the cook remove oil fryer to cook my skillet. I was assured it was only French fries that were cooked in the oil. Unfortunately I shouldn't have eaten it.. I was sick within 20 mins symptoms last for 3 days. Huge cross contamination of gluten. Coeliacs avoid this place!
Great gluten free options on their menu. Marked with a GF right on the regular menu. I like when it’s right on the normal menu so I don’t have to ask for a separate one and draw attention to myself. Lol I do have to tell them of course that I have celiac so they handle my food carefully in he kitchen, but I hate making people have to go out of their way or do extra for me. So not having to make them run back and forth for a separate menu is nice.
I gave a 4 only because I could tell the servers were not trained to know what Gluten was. Once I explained it the Server was more than happy to help and to make sure everything was correct and that I would not get sick. I always enjoy a good breakfast here!
