This place has GF buns and home fries. The staff was goid and the food okay.
The manager Jerry was wonderful! Great food and no gluten! We are very sensitive to even the slightest cross contamination. They were able to accommodate a soy allergy as well.
I am so thrilled that Eat'n Park is awesome about gluten allergies. As Roxanna mentioned, they take special care in preparing food for those with allergies separately and it is just as delicious as the non-GF food I remember having here in the past. And yes! The buns are awesome and you can buy them in house to bring home because they are made specifically for Eat'n Park. As soon as I ordered my burger with a GF bun and home fries instead of French fries, our waitress asked if I had an allergy and made a special note of it when I confirmed that I did have one. She took care in keeping my food separate from anything with gluten from the point it left the grill to the table. While my meal did come out well before my dining partner's, I appreciated the extra care that Eat'n Park takes in making sure that my meal will not only be delicious but the gluten-free meal I ordered.
I am always anxious to interrogate restaurants when they claim they are gluten free or celiac friendly, Between my husband and I we ask for tours of kitchens, talk to cooks,and read ingredient labels on their prepackaged cooking ingredients. Most of the time the food (meats and veggies) are fine and preparation is key, and usually they offer some sort of gluten free bread or bun for a fee, (usually gross) but its nice they try right? Well Eat,n Park in PA specifically lists Celiac disease on their menu, they change gloves, clean the grill completely, use different utensils (ones color coded separate for allergen cooking) and the menu has an entire section just for celiacs that is listed by breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like all of this but expected mediocre tasting food. The burger arrived, thick, juicy and dripping with cheese and bacon. The bun (my usual nemesis) I thought I simply would use as a handle to eat the burger. My first bite was divine, the bread was so soft, doughy, and held together wonderfully and didn't overshadow the juicy burger with the usual bitterness of gluten free bread. I loved it so much I asked the manager to bring out the label (he did). If you are ever in PA and would love to eat out with your family and enjoy your meal as much as you once did, go to EAT'N PARK!!! Salad bard was my side as their fryer isn't safe for fries considering they also fry breaded items in it, so they do not confidently offer it as safe.
I ordered a burger with gluten free bun and the waitress suggested pan fries because they are gluten free. Sadly something was cross contaminated and made me severely ill.
The manager went out if his way to make us crust less strawberry pie
This is a great safe option along the PA turnpike. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. There were plenty of options (including dessert), and our celiac daughter was very happy. When it came time to box up her leftovers, our server brought us out a new glove to use so we didn't touch her food after handling our gluten. We'll probably be back on our next road trip!
I enjoy eating breakfast here and have had no reactions. Their burgers with gluten free buns are great.
For a short order chain diner, not bad food. They have a celiac friendly menu, and the waitress said they have dedicated prep areas. I only gave them 3 stars, though, because the waitress was kind of rude. She wanted us to believe she was overwhelmed, even though there was only like 3 or 4 tables. Oh well, I’d eat here again, but hope for a better waitress. I may have to live with celiacs, but the waitress has to live with her hair style choices, and I’m okay with that.
The staff here had attended special training and the manager brought my food out separately to me. The menu includes a special section detailing GF offerings and describing how to modify other items ( for example, delicious GF buns are available for burgers or sandwiches ). It is a diner, so the food is diner food, but they went to the extra effort for me such that I felt safe.
I am not sure what happened last time. We had gone to this location specifically because of my celiac since I had eaten something here safely before, but I got terribly sick and was truly the first time I was "glutened" since diagnosis a few years ago :(
Very impressed, I notified my server that I had celiac disease and I asked if she could ask the kitchen staff to please change gloves when handling my food. I ordered a turkey burger on gluten free bread and she came back to let me know the turkey burger would normally go through the grill that also had bread in there, so she said they could cook mine on the grill too instead so it wouldn't be by the bread and get contaminated, very sweet. Great service, thank you Jenny!!!
restaurant bathrooms disgusting. only thing gluten free a bun which they would not toast for bteKfast. could not fry things on grill because of cross contamination . no gluten free menu. waitressesl uninformed about allergies. had fruit and coffee. will never go bavk
Have eaten here for years when in town. I tell the server I'm Celiac and they know what to do. There's a separate section on the main menu just for us. FYI, they'll make you "home fries" (grilled potato slices) to go with your Angus burger if you'd like, since they don't have a dedicated fryer for French fries. Service is terrific and so is the food.
Food was very good. I loved the gluten free bun (it was 75¢ extra). Waitress was very helpful with the gluten free. They have a little gluten free section within the regular menu. It would be awesome to have been able to have a smiley cookie. For the month of June 2017 children meals are 99¢ and both my children received a special Happy Birthday cup for Smiley since it is his 30th Birthday.
Went here for breakfast and ordered a sandwich with their GF bun and a side of fruit. Although it tasted ok and the service was good, I ended up sick before we even left the restaurant. I'm thinking maybe cross contamination!? Probably won't go back.
looks like a nicer version of a diner like Denny's/Big Boy. similar options of dishes, but a section on the menu showing what is GF. the options didn't work for us so we went across the street. we didn't actually eat here but can't leave this review without a rating, so ignore the rating we left.
Ordinary. There was an unpleasant problem with the food on my plate. The staff and manager were very accommodating about replacing my breakfast and not charging for it. However, I was left with the impression that "these things will happen" and it shouldn't have happened.
Was in Pennsylvania for a family reunion and researched restaurants that offer gluten free options. I read the previous reviews for this restaurant so my family and I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that the gluten free menu items were on their regular menu! I ordered the angus burger and was so glad that the bun was so fresh and soft as some other experiences I have had at other restaurants, the bun was really hard. This was by far one of the best burgers I have ever had. This is a great place to eat if you need to stay away from gluten!
Asked about gluten free menu and host was totally knowledgeable. Sat me with a waitress that he said "really knew her stuff" too. She did. Asked about cross contamination and she explained their flagging mechanism for allergies in the cooking area. Menu options aren't amazing, but not bad either.
You can't trust the gluten free menu one hundred percent. You can't have anything fried because they use a common fryer. Chili wasn't bad, very beany reminds me of Wendy's chili. I got a black angus cheeseburger with bacon. It was kind of blah, meat,cheese,bacon, no condiments. They offer a gluten free bun for 75 cents extra. I went without. Staff seemed very contentious but not overly trained. Some of the gluten free dinners come with rolls but they don't always say order without.
