We downloaded the allergy menu off the website as a reference. Not everything is listed though. There are other GF items that don't make the list due to shared fryers,etc. We had sausage skillets, kettle chips, ice cream, and popcorn while in the park. SDC beats most theme parks at the food game.
We struggled to find safe options here. Based off my conversations, it was due to a limited menu because of the smaller covid openings. The pizza place usually has a GF crust, but it's not kept in stock right now...I could have gotten burgers without a bun in a couple of places. They do have a website with an allergy safe menu and I thought I'd have luck with that. The one place that looked appetizing was nowhere to be found, so I was bummed. The only thing bringing this review up is that people were knowledgeable when asked. I was able to get jerky...and she used clean tongs and everything because I asked about which options were safe. We stopped at the ice cream parlor and I was the person holding up the line because my first person wasn't trained in allergies and had to go get someone who was. I appreciated that. I was bummed that the hot fudge sauce contained barley malt extract, so I couldn't have any of that. The guy who helped me through my order was very thorough and didn't just rely on the book of allergens (because they often have things that change...like the hot fudge...based on availability) and literally brought me every ingredient to read for myself. He explained how the ice cream making works to avoid CC. He really went above and beyond...and I wish I could remember his name to give him some recognition. Ice cream was good and I didn't get sick, so that was a plus. I wouldn't call this whole park celiac friendly, but I would say they are trying.
Staff very knowledgeable about GF options and where to find them. Wagon wheel was out of GF bread. But they pointed us to Crossroads Pizza. They had a fantastic GF chicken Alfredo pizza with cauliflower crust. All pizza made in separate oven and a clean pizza cut was brought out to slice mine. They have pepperoni and sausage option too. No cross contamination but I would for go the crust edges. Pretty hard.
I had the southwest skillet which was listed GF and haven’t had any issues since eating it. I have celiac and am very sensitive. I also had the kettle chips and they were great as well. I was surprised by how many options were available across the park.
Odd situation. Ask for the allergy book at every place and they will gladly give it to you, but they flip to the ingredients pages of the menu items which, to me, is of no help. However at the beginning of the book the first few pages lists the menu items and if they contain wheat or not so I would always ask to view that instead. Sausage Skillet, Hot cocoa, all ice cream (except for cookies and cream), burgers (no bun), pizza (sausage, cheese, and pepperoni, and tater twists, are all gluten free. The online GF menu was absolutely useless and half the items on there were clearly not gluten free. Most people were very helpful once I told them the situation though! I did not get sick but I definitely had to work for it!
We went to the Mine restaurant. My son and I are both Celiac. The staff were attentive and brought out our order from the kitchen, it's a buffet.
We had allot of food and a special fruit tray. Time will tell how GF it was. I'll comment back if there are any problems.
You can safely eat the gf pizza and there's a burger at wagon works grill. Otherwise you'll spend your whole day looking for food.
The food was good, don’t get me wrong, but some of the staff made me feel like they had no clue what gluten was or how to avoid it. Everywhere but Percy’s was fine (ironic because that’s the recommendation to go to if you have a gluten intolerance/celiac). When we got to Percy’s the staff told us that their bosses had just left, and the only thing they have to follow in their protocol for gluten free orders is a glove change, and to hand you the book of allergies. I watched as the slide the scopes used for both wheat and corn tortillas. I was fine because I have an intolerance, but a person who’s celiac, would most definitely have been glutened. The only reason it’s 4 stars is because the potatoes were pretty good and I felt safe ordering them with the staff being very knowledge.
Percy’s kitchen was horrible! Staff was unfriendly & unknowledgeable about the GF options & cross contamination. They were dragging flour tortillas over the buffet style set up & contaminating everything! They were annoyed when I informed them my daughter was Celiac & made her feel horrible.
We ate the best nachos at Percy’s and were soooo incredibly pleased with the gluten free situation! Brandi was so very knowledgeable and Josiah made fresh chicken on a clean grill!!
Curly potatoes were great Turkey leg was smoked and moist
Wonderful experience! Spoke to Becky before we visited for a list of things we could have. Staff was way beyond incredible!!!!! If they didn't have the book and the immediate answer we needed, they took it personally and worked hard to get an answer. We ate there multiple days without any issues! So wonderful not to feel like a burden to people! They helped with a smile! When we got ice cream at the ice cream parlor they even got a clean scoop and scooped out of an unopened bucket. Can't say enough about how incredible the service was!
I ate mostly potatoes and ice cream all day!! The kettle chips and the hatfields tater patch skillet were both really good! the frozen strawberry lemonade was my favorite!
Many Gluten free options
We've been to a number of theme parks where food was a challenge. Silver Dollar City was NOT a problem. Due to the volume of food served, MANY of the restaurants and food stands are completely gluten free. The staff everywhere is friendly and helpful. We're in the Valley Road area, and four places, Buckshot's Skillet Cookery, Frisco Popcorn, Hatfield's Tater Patch, and Tater Twist were either completely gf or had several gf options. You can also check menus ahead of time on the park's app, to make decisions ahead of time.
