Good gluten free options for breakfast. Have a really good gluten free English muffin. Good service most of the time though they seem to get short handed quite a bit so service can be slow.

While the menu shows what is made gluten free, nothing is gluten free. They use the fryer oil to grease the grill and do not have a GF option. We asked if they could wash a spot on the grill and they said no. They were not able to accommodate us at all so the only thing she could possibly eat was a smoothie.

Do not visit this Dennys location with Celiac under any circumstance!! They have gluten free English muffins, but it doesn’t seem like the cooks understand what the difference is between a gluten and gluten free muffin. They gave me a gluten muffin on my takeaway order and I didn’t find out until I got home. The grill and fryer are also not dedicated gluten-free despite the fries being labeled as gluten-free.

Once I arrived I asked if they have a Gluten Free menu like I was told, they said they didn’t. They managed to compromise with a burger with no bun. Wouldn’t recommend for a meal

Denny’s has gluten free options, but the servers do not seem to understand anything about out how stuff is prepped at this one, but the server brought the chef out to talk to me about how things are prepared. He sad each thing like eggs, bacon and sausage, and hash browns all have their own station. The gluten free English muffins are done in the same toaster though and he offered to clean it out but I told him not to worry about it.

He cleaned all the surfaces just in case something happened and he was happy to do it. Even came out to check on me and see how things were and make sure I knew he cleaned everything before even though those surfaces shouldn’t have had anything with gluten made on them.

I waited for 18 hours before doing this review to make sure I didn’t get sick and I have not. I usually get very sick very fast even from cross contamination.

Food was delicious. I got 2 linked sausages, 2 eggs over easy and hash browns

Let’s face it. We don’t go to Denny’s for the cuisine. Yet they are always my travel back up plan. I’ve never ever gotten sick from their naturally GF eggs, breakfast meat, hash browns or fruit. Always tell my server my allergy and apologize about needing extra care taken that my food is on a freshly cleaned section of the grill. Reliable food when on a road trip.
