Book Description

What To Eat Gluten-Free 

This indispensable reference ebook lists 60 restaurant chains, hyperlinked from an index, from Applebee's to Z Pizza, with details like:

- Whether they have a gluten-free menu and where (In the menu? Separate menu? In a binder?)
- All the items on the menu that are GF
- Whether they carry GF specialty products like GF hamburger buns or pasta
- Links to more allergen information and locations on the web
- Personal notes and an analysis of web information about that chain

Thirty-three restaurant chains are rated as Good for Gluten Free. A separate hyperlinked index directs you to just the good ones.

Seven are rated as Not Recommended due to serious concerns, several of which advertise that they have special gluten-free menus and selections. Have you eaten at one of them? Did you get sick?

As a bonus, excellent individual restaurants are listed by state.

This ebook is optimized for smartphones, ereaders, and tablets.

TK Kenyon writes the blog Celiac Maniac about eating gluten-free safely. Kenyon is a regulatory consultant for the pharmaceutical industry and travels frequently.

Editorial Reviews


"Jam-Packed with Information"

"What to Eat Out When You Eat Out Gluten Free is jam-packed with information including the author's own dining experiences, impressions and recommendations. There are over 60 restaurants reviewed in this book.  Restaurants with good GF selections are listed in the index first, then all restaurants reviewed are listed in alphabetical order, and then a few restaurants are listed by region.  Each restaurant name in the index links to its respective page in the book where you can read details such as whether or not a GF menu is available, how responsive and knowledgeable staff/management (and the company as a whole) are to GF requests and issues like cross contamination, a list of gluten free offerings at that particular restaurant (at the time of publishing), and menu items that might seem innocuous but that are unsafe (such as hidden gluten in beverages, condiments, etc.).  Each restaurant description also includes a link to its website if available and also a link back to the index.  The book is easy to navigate and easy to read.  As a gluten-phobe, I would recommend this book as a handy resource to help take some of the guesswork out of dining out gluten free."

From the Author

I Needed My Own Book: A True Story

I was eating lunch at Sweet Tomatoes Salad Bar. From researching this book, I remembered that three of the salad dressings contain gluten, but I didn't memorize my own book. Luckily, I had downloaded my own book into my Kindle app on my phone. 

I hit the first hyperlinked index, clicked All Restaurants, scrolled down the alphabetized list to Sweet Tomatoes, clicked on that, and scrolled down the GF list to see which salad dressings were gluten-free, thus avoiding one game of gluten roulette. 

Then, I moseyed over to the soup bar and, with my Kindle app still open, chose between the Vegetable Medley and the Santa Fe Chili. No guessing. No gluten roulette. 

That night, when my colleagues were debating supper, I suggested BJ's Brewhouse, which I knew (from a quick scroll through the "Good Restaurants Index") had good GF selections and even GF beer and hard apple cider. 

I've been using it ever since. All that research was so worth it. I hope you'll find it as useful as I have.

Format:Kindle Edition
Our son has both gluten and dairy intolerance. I had resigned myself to bringing our own food whenever we travel. But with this e-book, life is a bit easier. We can check the menus of fast food restaurants easily from the kindle app on my smart phone. There are 99 Chain Restaurants included. Some of them I was aware of their GF menus, like PF Chang's but I was thrilled to know that everything at Chipolte Grill is gluten-free. They win the prize! It is also nice to have a handy reference for the big fast food chains, since it is sometimes cumbersome to find the online menus on the road and the food service folks don't always know what if GF and what is not.

I really recommend this book. It is easy to use. I believe the edition I have is updated and I hope that T.K. Kenyon continues to add to this book as she discovers more places that are safe for those with Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance to eat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great GF Restaurant reference December 14, 2011
By Anna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the information in this book well organized and easy to access. There is a link back to the table of contents at the end of each restaurant section as well as three indexed lists of restaurants (Good, All, and By Location). I also liked the links to the restaurant Web pages for locations and posted GF or allergy information. The listing of what GF items available make it easy to decide between restaurants.

I was very happy to see that there is a GF Bakery in a Phoenix as I will be there in a couple weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tool for Gluten Free Dining Out March 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew that I lived in a rather isolated area but was pleasantly surprised to find information I could use here. This makes a lot 0f the stress of having to eat in town occasionally out of the equation. I found that some choices I had make in the past that I thought were safe were not and was pleasantly surprised at the choices I do have. Thanks so much for making this available!!
