Eating out when you have food allergies can be quite challenging. Allergens can be in menu items that appear harmless and many restaurant employees are not adequately informed about the ingredients in or method of preparation for each menu item. Fortunately, many restaurants offer allergy information or a list of ingredients for their menu items. Some restaurants may even have a special “gluten-free” or “dairy-free” menu available upon request. Be sure to ask for allergy information before you order at a restaurant. It might also be helpful to call ahead before deciding where to eat out so you can ask what menu items are available based on your allergy needs.
Below is a list of links to restaurant chains that post allergy information for their menus online. If you are aware of other helpful resources, please feel free to contact us and we’ll add it to the site!
