One of the managers (Joan) has Celiac too, and she went into the kitchen herself to prepare my food. I got an omelette with pepper jack cheese, fruit on the side. The waitress (Wanda) was phenomenal, and told me I could probably request "country eggs" (which means straight from the shell) at any IHOP location as a substitute for the standard pre-mixed egg batter stuff, and as long as they clean your section of the grill before cooking, it should be safe. I was coming back from a weekend with folks who didn't understand the severity of the issue, so I was already experiencing symptoms beforehand, but given how on-the-ball everyone was, I believe this location is safe.

One of the mangers (or owners?) of this location has Celiac's. The manager on duty and wait staff was very knowledgeable they reassures me they would clean the grill and try to keep things as separated as possible. They will also make plain eggs for you without the pancake batter, making them gf so you can order any of the omelets. I had no reaction. I will definitely go back.

I wasn't hungry when my husband wanted to go to breakfast, so I was game for IHOP as I was just going to get a drink, but then I saw the golden words "Gluten Sensitive Pancakes"!!! For $6.99 I got a stack of 2 delicious pancakes and chose the blueberry syrup. We got there just as they opened so I had no worries about cross-contact, crossed my fingers and prayed to the GF God's! The lady was so sweet, I wish I caught her name!

I have eaten here four times and have not been glutened. They offer a selection of GF sides (pure fried Eggs, Bacon, sausage Links etc ) and a stack (of 4 or 2) GF pancakes. Waitress was knowledgable on which Pancake toppings were gluten friendly - I stuck with old fashioned syrup.

This is a good branch of ihop - more confident here than other local Branches.

Delicious pancakes, I am highly sensitive and did not get sick whatsoever. I would just be sure to chat with the manager to confirm that your order will be made with no cross contamination. That’s what I did and everything came out great!
