I gave a 4 only because I could tell the servers were not trained to know what Gluten was. Once I explained it the Server was more than happy to help and to make sure everything was correct and that I would not get sick. I always enjoy a good breakfast here!
Denny's is not celiac friendly. They might have a lot of gluten free items on their menu. They fry there French fries that are gluten free in the same fryer that they fry other items, like fry onion rings, ect.... That have wheat flour breading on them.!!! So they are not gluten free anymore. Cross contamination !!!! Ask ?'s
This place made me sick. I ordered a skillet breakfast. This place was super busy and the cooks were swamped and yelling at each other. I feel like they didn't take the proper precautions although my waitress informed the kitchen of my condition.
Some menu items marked as GF are not. I told them I had an allergy, they told me when the food was delivered that the eggs were GF but the rest of the omelette wasn't. Why waste my time like that? I'm glad they caught it but I had to wait for something else to be made. If your menu says GF, don't lie.
Happily surprised to find a ton of gluten free options! We dined in for breakfast, but there were also a lot of dinner options as well!
Although items on the menu are marked GF, nothing is prepared separately. I couldn't eat anything but hash browns because even the gluten free English muffins are toasted in shared toaster with regular breads. NOT a good dining choice for people with GF allergy and /or Celiac !
I had dined at a Denny's in Stockton, Ca a few weeks ago. I had ordered off of the gluten-free menu, after informing the waitress that I have Celiac disease. When my meal arrived, I had noticed a glaze on the steak--"bourbon glaze" is what the waitress had said that it was. When I had tested it with my Nima, it came back with "low gluten." Upon speaking with the manager, I further discovered that the potatoes were not fried in a dedicated fryer, so they were possibly cross-contaminated! I also discovered that none of their gluten-free menu items were in fact "gluten-free!" The manager will be speaking to their corporate office to make menu modifications. If anything, the manager was pleasant, and she was actually thankful to be informed.
My niece has celiacs and we have been traveling. When we tried to explain the situation the server he called over the manager and we were able to explain the situation. They scraped the grill and cleaned it, explained the process, and listed all their ingredients. It ended up being ok. So, they are not familiar, but definitely willing to get it right. Awesome!
Limited to breakfast options. Nachos say gluten free on the menu, but the waitress was very informed and guided us away from them since the chips are not fried in a dedicated fryer. Breakfast food was good though, and they offered gluten free English muffins with butter on the side to limit cross-contamination.
So far so good! No reaction, lots of really good gluten free options for breakfast, so you don't feel like you're getting cheated out of the "really good" food. Disappointed that they don't offer any gf pancakes yet, but the gf English muffin was surprisingly good!
Questionable. Dennys does have an extensive allergy list and gluten free items however it all depends on how much your server cares. I didn't get one that did. I let her know of my wheat allergy but she didn't seem to care. Someone else's bread was hovering over my salad. Eat at your own risk.
steak skewer and egg skillet is not gluten free. The bourbon sauce contain gluten. Also the steak may be sauteed in a solution containing gluten or the spices that are sprinkles on the steak. I rarely have a problem eating gf at Dennys, but I felt I should warn others. I told the waitress and manager, but I know they won't change it. This meal is advertised as GLUTEN FREE.
