The HR cafe is located outside before taking your train to the terminal, don’t make the same mistake I did and go through security to find out you don’t have any options past security! I had to exit the terminal and luckily had time to grab a burger before my flight!

Anyway -The waitress had the manager come over to give information about their options -which is their protocol. He said most of the menu can be tailored to my needs. The oil the fries are cooked in gets mixed with the oil where the fried shrimp are cooked at the end of the night. He says most people who have a gluten intolerance do just fine eating their fries. I ordered a burger with a gluten free bun which came sealed in a bag but warmed up. All toppings on the side so you have to build the burger. I chose mash potato for my side and I’m glad I did because I ended up not eating most of the bun. As we know, gluten free bread has a hard time staying together. Overall, Hard Rock Cafe was a good choice since there aren’t many GF friendly restaurants at TPA.

Our waitress really took the time to check what items I could eat & said the chef recommended the burger with a GF bun, and served with broccoli instead of the fries. Great choice!

No gluten free menu, and there’s really few ways to make the breakfast menu work.

When I asked, a host informed me that the breakfast potatoes were not gluten free as they are breaded.

Stopped for breakfast while at airport. I’ve had success at other Hard Rocks so thought it was worth a try (my glutinous companion needed a good breakfast before a flight). Figured worst comes to worse I’d get some fruit. The server, Tracy, was awesome! When I said I had an allergy without missing a beat she told me they had a dedicated fryer for the breakfast potatoes and I could have everything on the breakfast menu except the bread! She even asked if it was an intolerance or an allergy! I was very impressed! I don’t like eggs so I got a side of bacon, side of potatoes, and side of fruit. It as pricy that way but I got an excellent portion, tasty, and filling! Fruit was a huge sundae cup of berries. Will definitely make me keep an eye out for Hard Rocks when traveling!

Waitstaff very knowledgeable and there was a separate gluten free menu with many options available. We tried to order fries, as we had read here that they were baked, however our waiter informed us they had changed the process and instead suggested the nachos, which were unbelievable! My daughter with celiac had no reaction and everyone enjoyed their meals. Awesome experience

Our experience at the Hard Rock Cafe was excellent! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They had a gluten-free menu with quite a few options. I had the grilled chicken on a brioche bun that was delicious. Also fries from a dedicated fryer. Good sized portions as well.

So. They have a gluten free menu with quite a few options, as well as gluten free buns. The server and the supervisor were both very attentive and assured me that my food would be prepared properly and gluten free. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich and it was delicious.
