Location: West Hollywood, California

Dedicated Free Of: Peanut and Shellfish

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate: Any

“Don’t miss this place! Great for allergies. Menu is very clear about what is safe and not safe to eat. Peanut-free kitchen. I had the Canadian bacon egg omelet, which was delicious. They have a protocol in place and bring a little red paper dot over to the table to signal the allergy.”

Location: Long Beach, California

@lisakammel, who manages tree nut allergies and lactose intolerance


Split-Rail

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Dedicated Free Of: Peanut and Tree Nuts

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate: All other allergies

“We loved Split Rail and felt so safe eating here. After seeing the Spokin feature I knew whenever we visited Chicago we had to eat here. Everything was amazing, you have to get the fried chicken and biscuits. THe menu is clearly marked gf, df, vegan. The WHOLE restaurant is dedicated nut free! Would definitely eat here again.”

Lonesome Rose

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Dedicated Free Of: None
Other Allergens They Can Accommodate:
All other allergies

“Update: we ordered in and my daughter safely had a veggie burrito. I really like the food and menu and noticed their ingredients listed on door dash!
Very impressed with this place! Casual and hip. We did NOT eat here with our allergy daughter but wanted to share that they had so many vegan (dairy-free) options including vegan queso and vegan nachos. My allergic daughter likes to eat vegan often so I asked what the cheese was made of thinking it would be nuts—it is oat milk and coconut-based (safe for my daughter) and has potatoes. We can’t wait to bring her back!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Chaia Tacos

Location: Multiple Locations

Dedicated Free Of: Peanut, Tree Nuts, Soy, Fish, Shellfish, Wheat, Gluten, Mustard

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate: Milk, Egg, Corn, Potato, and Legumes.

“There was a place in the online ordering system to disclose food allergies and I just found out one of the owners manages a nut allergy in the family, so it makes sense how they totally understand food allergies! This was seriously the best place I ate at in D.C.! This is a “farm to table” completely vegetarian taco restaurant that is also 100% free of gluten and nuts! All the tacos except one (the potato and kale taco) can be made vegan! Their allergen statement on their website is also so clear! The menu rotates seasonally, but they always clearly label which tacos can be made vegan!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Tocaya Organica

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“The whole menu base is vegan, and you choose your protein and cheese option. They have 2 vegan cheese options. Desserts are also all dairy-free but are based with almond milk so avoid if you have a tree nut allergy. They have an extremely in depth allergy chart available at the register upon request”

@serenesafe, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, and sesame allergies


Original ChopShop

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“This is such a great place to eat with a gluten, dairy, or egg allergy! The app and online menu allow you to filter by dietary restriction and you can find dairy-free, vegan, and gluten-free options easily with a touch of the button. When we still had concerns about a couple of menu items, they pulled out the full ingredient list for us and were super knowledgeable about the items. They had no problem changing gloves and preparing our food in a separate area. They do have a lot of nuts here, but we still felt comfortable there, and had no problems at our visit!”

@foodallergydiva, who manages almond, milk, egg, and mustard allergies


CALIFORNIA

@sarahandspices, who manages peanut, milk, wheat, vegetable, grain, and celiac-gluten allergies


Gracias Madre

Location: West Hollywood, California

“Hands down, the best allergy experience we have EVER had. This is a plant-based place that we have wanted to try forever but because they have cashews on the menu we have avoided until now BUT we saw several good reviews on Spokin so we gave it a try. For starters, the first thing our server asked was if anyone had food allergies, then he went through each of my daughter’s allergies. They are 100% peanut-free and talked through each of her tree nuts, then she shared what she wanted and the waiter brought out an allergy binder you can scan for a full allergy menu that is the most detailed I have ever seen. He even checked every item that the table ordered in case she wanted to try!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Pizza Mania

Location: Carlsbad, California

“My daughter has an egg allergy and the cheese pizza offered at this restaurant is egg-free. Very helpful staff and they even showed me the food allergy binder to have better peace of mind.”

@nmarie, who manages peanut and egg allergies

@lisakammel, who manages tree nut allergies and lactose intolerance


Ike’s Love & Sandwiches

Location: San Jose, California

“Have an allergen-free menu in the store if you ask for it. Only ingredients with nuts are Nutella and almond butter which are in the back and don’t have a huge chance of cross contact. They have gluten-free bread from Mariposa Bakery (gluten-free and nut-free), and will make your sandwich with separate knives, spreads, and surfaces if you mention an allergy. They also offer vegan cheese. Delicious food, moderately safe for allergies.”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac gluten allergies


Puesto at the Headquarters

Location: San Diego, California

“This was our first time dining here, but I was beyond impressed with their allergy protocol. They label menu items that contain peanuts (only a couple), but when I explained to the waitress the extent of the allergy, she showed me a laminated chart they use that listed every dish, all the allergens it could contain, and how it could be modified to potentially eliminate them. So impressed and the food was great! No items containing nuts on the kids menu.”

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Veggie Grill

Location: San Diego, California

“My dairy, egg, and nut-allergic boys love this restaurant. They keep a binder with ingredients listed for each item. Staff is helpful and the food is delicious.”

@courtneysolis, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, and egg allergies


Sabertooth Grill

Location: San Diego, California

“Ingredients binder is available upon request and the staff at the buffet warned me that cookies containing peanuts are “cooked in the same oven” as the baked mac + cheese on the kids menu. I appreciated this over-cautious mention. After confirming the two things are cooked at separate times and in different pans, we felt comfortable ordering the mac + cheese.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


George’s at the Cove

Location: San Diego, California

“I was not able to have their regular skirt steak because the sauce was made with shellfish. The chef was nice enough to make a new sauce special for my allergies! This made me feel super safe. Also you should sit on the ocean terrace—it’s a great view and a great place to watch the sun set! They also have an allergy binder for everything on the menu to see what you can and can not eat. This was a great restaurant and I highly recommend!”

@janikstein, who manages tree nut and seed allergies


Oceana Coastal Kitchen

Location: San Diego, California

“This restaurant far exceeded my expectations and was such a great allergy find! There are no peanuts on the menu and the only nut in the kitchen is almonds! The menu is clearly labeled with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free symbols, so it was very easy to order a safe gluten-free meal! The waiter confirmed with the chef about my allergies and then came back to let me know everything was safe!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


Phil’s BBQ

Location: San Diego, California

“I have to let my fellow allergy friends and parents know about Phil’s BBQ, if I didn’t it would be a disservice! First off, they have an allergy matrix card. Amazing for gluten allergies as well. My son was able to eat many items, as they come off this menu, and it was delicious. Manager and waitstaff were knowledgeable. He was able to eat French fries, ribs, and corn on the cob!”

@noosh, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, fish, shellfish, and sesame allergies


Lilac Pâtisserie

Location: Santa Barbara, California

“A 100% dedicated gluten-free restaurant and bakery! They have a binder that lists by allergen (nuts, soy, corn, gelatin, etc.) which items have the allergens and take it very seriously. We got a grilled cheese and chocolate chip cookie. Adorable place to eat in and get sweets.”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Asian Box

Location: Palo Alto, California 

“Everything is gluten-free—no small feat for an entire restaurant. Might also all be dairy-free but I’d confirm. They have a very detailed binder re: allergens for each item.”

@calimama, who manages peanut, tree nut, celiac-gluten, mango, and sesame allergies


Granny’s Apple Fries

Location: Carlsbad, California

“Happy that these yummy apple fries and whip don’t contain egg. As soon as I stated there was a food allergy, they brought out the food allergy binder and showed me that these fries did not contain egg. Very helpful staff.”

@nmarie, who manages tree nut, mustard, and seed allergies


Sajj Mediterranean

Location: San Francisco, California

“Sajj is a fantastic Mediterranean lunch spot that features a chart of every item and its allergy level. It is one of the most comprehensive diagrams I’ve seen anywhere. The pomegranate chicken, lamb kabob, and falafel are great. Don’t skip the garlic spread!”

@grahamkahr, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, and fish allergies


Ladle + Leaf

Location: San Francisco, California

“The online menu gives top 8 allergen warnings, which is very helpful! I have never had a problem here, but I stick to the soups and pre-packaged sandwiches. The Mexican Chicken Tortilla and the Grandma Mary’s Chicken Soup are great, and I always like the Turkey Bacon Avocado Sandwich!”

@samsafeeats, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Palm House

Location: San Francisco, California

“Super famous spot in San Francisco and I was surprised by how allergy-friendly it was! The menu is labeled with gluten-free and vegan symbols and a ton of menu items are gluten-free, including the fries! It’s Cuban food and they have a bunch of brunch food, as well as lunch and dinner. I had the huevos rancheros and sweet potato fries which were delicious and safe!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac gluten allergies


River Belle Terrace

Location: Anaheim, California

“We had dinner reservations and noted our allergy on the reservation. It was confirmed by the hostess and our waiter. We were given an allergen menu. The meal was delivered and confirmed to be the allergen-friendly meal. A delicious strawberry sorbet was offered for dessert.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Smokejumpers Grill

Location: Anaheim, California

“They have a well-rounded allergen menu, and are consistent in providing an allergy-friendly experience. If you ask, you can speak with the chef. The entire restaurant is peanut/tree nut-free, but the burger buns are “made in a facility”. The chef was more than happy to prepare my meal himself (everytime) in a clean prep area, new gloves, and even a new batch of fries! I got the bacon cheeseburger on a lettuce wrap (he even got me toppings from the back). Amazing experience!”

@lindseymroper, who manages peanut, tree nut, fruit, and vegetable allergies


Wine Country Trattoria

Location: Anaheim, California

“AMAZING with allergies! And the food is INCREDIBLE! When we arrived, the waitress who seated us, as well as our server, were already aware of my allergies through our reservations. He confirmed what my allergies were and then handed me a very detailed allergy menu that appeared to have no dishes with nuts on it! Everything I ate also came out with an allergy marker!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac gluten allergies


Galactic Grill

Location: Anaheim, California

“So many peanut allergy-friendly options here—mac and cheese, burgers, fries, chicken sandwich and nuggets—just let them know at the window! They also have their menu and allergy options online for pre-decision making help. We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergies, as well as my husband’s gluten intolerance. Let them know you have an allergy and often they will direct you to what is safe and will call a chef over if needed and possible such as in sit down restaurants.”

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Cafe Orleans

Location: Anaheim, California

“If you are looking for a fancy dinner in Disneyland, definitely make reservations at Cafe Orleans. Make sure to let your waiter know about your food allergies, and they will bring out an allergen menu as well as offer to have the chef help discuss safe options. They also have many other gluten-free options and very few nuts!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


Carnation Cafe

Location: Anaheim, California

“We had dinner reservations and noted our allergy. The hostess confirmed at check in. Our waiter gave us an allergy menu and confirmed our allergy. His meal came marked with a wooden skewer labeled “ALLERGY” which helped me feel confident the kitchen remained aware. He liked his mac and cheese so much, he ordered a 2nd dinner.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Rancho del Zoca Restaurante 

Location: Anaheim, California

“They provide an allergy menu upon request, and this location is peanut and tree nut-free (other than desserts, which aren’t prepared on site). My favorite meal is the half chicken with rice! So good and filling.”

@lindseymroper, who manages peanut, tree nut, fruit, and vegetable allergies


Rubio’s Coastal Grill

Location: Visalia, California

“Helpful allergen menu. Staff was super friendly and willing to triple check everything for us.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Islands Restaurant

Location: Long Beach, California

“They have a super thorough allergen menu online labeled for the top 8, and the only nuts are in the desserts! They also have been great with my gluten allergy, have separate dishes on the menu that are labeled gluten-free, and have a dedicated gluten-free fryer! We did take out from this location, which I rarely do but had a fantastic experience here. There was a place to disclose allergen instructions online, and when we picked it up, the waiter confirmed that the “gluten free nut allergy meal” was prepared safely! The box my meal came in was also clearly labeled with my allergens! Highly recommend their tacos and burgers!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


Nectarine Grove Cafe + Bakehouse

Location: Del Mar, California

“100% gluten-free and organic. Menu items are labeled as GF, V, etc. Complete ingredients/allergen list available. Staff was helpful when asked about allergens. My kids have eaten pastries here once with no issues.”

@allergiccourage, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Shin-Sen-Gumi

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Ask for an allergen menu. They have each item and ingredient (add-ons to ramen) and which contains which allergen or not.”

@chefzoe24, who manages peanut, tree nut, and fish allergies


The Butcher’s Daughter

Location: Los Angeles, California

“I loved that this spot had such a clear menu indicating which items were dairy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free! Even though they serve dairy and eggs here, I felt very safe. The waiter even showed me how he clearly labeled my allergy to the kitchen on my order! I really appreciated him going above and beyond for me.”

@jennatso8, who manages milk, egg, beef, and pork allergies


Nic’s on Beverly

Location: Los Angeles, California

“This is the best vegan brunch in Los Angeles! The cocktails are to die for and the food is amazing. I got the waffler breakfast sandwich with roasted potatoes and was in love! The staff was super knowledgeable and I love that they clearly label which menu items are gluten-free or contain nuts! This place is safe for dairy, egg, gluten, and nut allergies.”

@jennatso8, who manages milk, egg, beef, and pork allergies


The Butcher’s Son

Location: Berkley, California

“This is a fully vegan restaurant, so there’s no potential for cross-contamination with dairy or eggs. The allergen menu available online is really helpful, and when I called and asked a question, they were very knowledgeable and accommodating! Even though it’s a plant-based restaurant, I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn’t eating meat—it’s that realistic. Super yummy and definitely excited to go back!”

@amandayoung03, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish, and fish allergies


Wood Ranch

Location: Irvine, California

“It’s so hard to find allergy-friendly BBQ restaurants! This place was on top of it and had a menu that listed all items that had nuts and peanuts. The food is good, too!”

@dsarsour, who manages tree nut, seed, mustard, peach, and quinoa allergies


The Stand

Location: Newport Beach, California

@dsarsour, who manages tree nut, seed, mustard, peach, and quinoa allergies


The Kebab Shop

Location: Cerritos, California

@lsanglo, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Location: Lakewood, California

“Did you know their lemon garlic chicken was top 8 free? And so are their signature beans. So flavorful. Clear allergen menu available online.”

@lsanglo, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Urban Plates

Location: Torrance, California

“I went to Urban Plates for a work lunch today and was pleasantly surprised with their knowledge of food allergies and allergy protocol. I was able to enjoy the Asian Chicken Salad safely as they cooked my chicken on a separate cooking surface and used clean utensils to make my salad. The menu also highlights what items are dairy-free, vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan which I loved. Additionally, they have a great allergen menu online and an allergy binder to reference at their location.”

@jennatso8, who manages milk, egg, beef, and pork allergies


Hugo’s Restaurant

Location: West Hollywood, California

Dedicated Free Of: Peanut and Shellfish

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate: All other allergies

@sophr, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, tuna, and pea allergies


COLORADO


Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort + Spa

Location: Tabernash, Colorado

“This resort is amazing with food allergies. The Ranch House, where we have been eating most of the days here, is very accommodating to allergies. They said they would cook my Shepherd’s Pie in a separate area from the other foods, and are very accommodating to our friends’ needs as well, as they were able to remove ingredients that were not wanted from the dish since most were made to order. In addition, their menu shows all gluten free, vegetarian, etc. options. They let the kitchen know of the allergy and are very helpful. The cafe does feature some items with nuts, but are very helpful in helping you find the safest food option.”

@erika123, who manages tree nut allergies


GRASSBURGER

Location: Durango, Colorado

“They clearly post allergens online and have a binder under the counter. Food was excellent!”

DELAWARE


Nectar Cafe + Juice Bar

Location: Lewes, Delaware

“Super cute little cafe! The kale chips are my favorite and they offer gluten-free pancakes and label everything vegan. If you are in the area, definitely a must visit!”

@shosbein, who manages wheat and celiac-gluten allergies


FLORIDA


Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Cosmic Ray’s now has a dedicated allergy kitchen and allergy chefs where they are trained on cross contamination and they change gloves…the whole shebang! You tell them you have an allergy at the order station and they call someone over to assist you and go through the allergy binder with you. I’m allergic to shellfish/fish and they don’t have any kind of seafood food items here so I was good to order from the regular menu. My peanut/tree nut-allergic son was able to order off the regular menu also. The only nuts they have are Uncrustables they sell. My son with peanut, tree nut, egg, dairy, and tomato allergies ordered chicken nuggets and French fries.”

@allergymomtries, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and shellfish allergies


Regal Eagle Smokehouse

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This is one of two quick serve options that has an allergen menu at Epcot! They have Bloomfield Farms top 8 friendly bread, a selection of allergy-friendly sauces and absolutely amazing BBQ.”

@seelyhaislip, who manages peanut, tree nut and fish allergies


Liberty Tree Tavern

Location: Orlando, Florida

“They had an extensive menu for the top 8 allergies with so many options to choose from. When ordering, they want to be very careful and correct with your allergies so they use a pink slip stamped with “allergies”. If you have 2 or more, the chef visits the table. All they want is you to be happy and enjoy your food. The chef went out of her way to make mashed potatoes with olive oil for me because she typically uses Earth Balance (which has pea protein in it). The plate comes to the table with an allergy stick in it. I felt so safe, I would absolutely go back.”

@elizabeth0234, who manages peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, chia, fruit, and cauliflower allergies


Whispering Canyon Cafe

Location: Orlando, Florida

“The restaurant is nut-free. I believe they also have an allergy menu for other food allergies. Great food!”

@peacock2010, who manages tree nut allergies


Be Our Guest Restaurant

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This place is worth the work of getting a reservation! Download the Disney app and keep trying randomly and they pop up, especially 24-48 hours before the date. You can pre-order food online before your trip, and the online menu allows you to filter by allergens. Allergy food comes out separately and with little allergy flags. They check your allergens at check in and again when you receive food. I always feel comfortable here and again try the grey stuff—it really is delicious!”

@lattelauren, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Chef Mickey’s

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Despite it being a buffet, you have nothing to worry about. You can indicate your allergy when you make a reservation or when you check in. They’ll then give you a special menu and a chef will make it just for you. I have been a few times and they are always so wonderful with my allergy. They also ensure that it’s all you can eat like others but the portions are so ample I’ve never asked for seconds. And they have tree nut-free dessert! Truly magical!”

@sbaier3, who manages tree nut allergies


MISSION BBQ

Location: Orlando, Florida

“A peanut-free BBQ restaurant! On their website, they have a clear allergy menu and the staff is very knowledgeable about allergies. They were able to answer my questions on the phone and in person. They have no peanuts in their kitchen and only have markers for tree nuts on their sandwiches, since the buns they use are not made in house. The meats and cornbread are made in house and are not only delicious but free from peanuts and tree nuts. They fry in soybean oil. I highly recommend Mission BBQ! I felt very safe and enjoyed yummy BBQ.”

@amandapayo1219, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


The Hollywood Brown Derby

Location: Orlando, Florida

“They have a nice, clear allergy menu and the waiter was very helpful. Even the bread rolls and butter were nut-free. My daughter had grilled cheese that looked delicious and they had a safe ice cream sundae with gummy worms in it and they replaced the cookie with Enjoy Life cookies for her. She was in heaven. We were completely comfortable eating here.”

@lattelauren, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


D-Luxe Burger

Location: Lake Buena Vista, Florida

“Went here tonight to try the gelato shakes with my girlfriend. As soon as we mentioned the allergy the waiter asked if we wanted the chef, but since the facility has no peanuts or tree nuts, and they fry in canola oil, we felt just the waiter was fine. They have an allergy menu online and in person. We got the s‘mores gelato shake and it was delicious! One of the best shakes I’ve ever had.”

@oliver18, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Trail’s End Restaurant

Location: Lake Buena Vista, Florida

“This is one of my favorite restaurants on Disney’s property. Always ask to speak to a chef! I always like to ask for an allergy menu so I can see what the options are so I know what questions to ask the chef and what to order fresh from the back so there is no cross contamination.”

@tpgordon, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies


Orbit Cafe

Location: Merritt Island, Florida

“None of the food they cook has nuts. They also have a dedicated gluten-free fryer, but the only gluten-free food I could see was French fries. They do have a detailed allergen binder, which was super helpful, that they just offered to me without me asking for it! My food-allergic kiddo safely ate the cheese pizza here.”

@vkotz, who manages peanut, tree nut, and wheat allergies


Iguana Mia

“I spoke to the manager, Ken. He was very helpful and said when we come in, to ask for him. Tonight we called to do “call ahead seating” and again mentioned the food allergy and he said “Oh hi, I spoke to you yesterday! Yep, we’re ready for you”. Upon being seated, he came right over to the table with an entire binder that showed everything on their menu and had a whole chart for food allergies! I was so impressed. He also checked in with us multiple times! My daughter loved her meal and I loved the amazing service!”

Glory Days Grill

Location: Wesley Chapel, Florida

“I loved going here to eat. The staff can be iffy when it comes to their knowledge on how to handle food allergies, but the manager is awesome, and always takes the lead if there is someone with an allergy. Their allergen menu is also very clear online!”

@briabria, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


LuLu’s Destin

“Amazing restaurant with a separate allergy kitchen. The gold standard of dining with food allergies. Separate allergen menu provided and a manager handles the entire process for the allergen free order. Fun family atmosphere with a sand play area for kids overlooking the bay.”

CJ’s on the Bay

Location: Marco Island, Florida

“The food here was delicious and they had an allergen menu that told you which foods didn’t contain your allergen for the top 8. This menu was super useful and I hope other restaurants begin to create them as well.”

@thomik10, who manages peanuts, tree nut, and shellfish allergies


Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse Tampa

Location: Tampa, Florida

“Waitstaff are very professional and they have a special menu that lists all their items along with the allergens they contain. The meats are just lightly seasoned and grilled, so they have very few allergens. Everything is clearly labeled and delicious! Definitely coming back.”

Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant + Caterers

@leslieevans, who manages a peanut allergy


BrickTop’s

Location: Naples, Florida

“Great service here and a good knowledge of allergies! I always order through the manager to be extra safe and they are very reassuring. I love the ribs! They have a gluten-free menu and look after me with my nut allergy. They are also happy to adjust and adapt where needed, too.”

@allergybubble, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and celiac-gluten allergies


NaiYaRa Thai + Sushi Miami

Location: Miami Beach, Florida

“The best allergy-friendly Thai in Miami. Gluten-free-marked menu with plenty of options. I absolutely love the Pad See Ew and the Pad Thai. The coconut soup is also one of the best soups ever. They only use tamari in the whole restaurant, so I always feel more at ease!”

@passthetreats, who manages a wheat allergy


Hawkers Asian Street Fare

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

“They are super understanding and friendly! When they bring the food out they will specifically serve it as “Dumpling-with allergy.” They have dividers in the restaurant and only take cashless payments. Menus are also by QR code.”

@alyssaarria14, who manages peanut, tree nut, and fish allergies


Taco Bus

Location: Clearwater, Florida

“Great food with lots of options for everyone! The manager stated they don’t use any nuts in their restaurant, not even in their horchata. I didn’t try it, because you never know, but I did get Dole soft serve ice cream (yay no scoops!) When I contacted their Facebook page about allergen info to verify, they also told me they don’t use nuts in their restaurant, but they strangely sent me a guide for what to eat if I am dairy-free or vegan. Helpful if you fall within that category, but a little concerning when you ask about nuts. With that being said, I think this is a great place for people with all kinds of allergens or food restrictions.”

The Beet Box Cafe

Location: Kailua, Hawaii

“My go-to for breakfast and lunch in Kailua. Most dishes can be made with gluten free bread or options. Go early for the best selection of vegan and gluten free donuts and baked goods. Their menu has little icons at each dish description to give you a quick allergy reference.”

@mscris, who manages a wheat allergy


ILLINOIS


Naf Naf Grill

Location: Aurora, Illinois

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate:
All other allergies

“Update: we ordered in and my daughter safely had a veggie burrito. I really like the food and menu and noticed their ingredients listed on door dash!
Very impressed with this place! Casual and hip. We did NOT eat here with our allergy daughter but wanted to share that they had so many vegan (dairy-free) options including vegan queso and vegan nachos. My allergic daughter likes to eat vegan often so I asked what the cheese was made of thinking it would be nuts—it is oat milk and coconut-based (safe for my daughter) and has potatoes. We can’t wait to bring her back!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

RealGood Stuff Co.

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“The menu somehow only includes the nuts my son is not allergic to—hazelnuts and almonds! Yay! The waitstaff was extremely helpful. They have a binder with all the ingredients in their foods that they gave me access to. Many vegan options with limited nuts, and no peanuts that I could see. Best part is the food and shakes are tasty! I will be back for sure.”

“This restaurant was so great about food allergies! The menu had a legend on it to note what items were dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free (and vegetarian too)—none are our allergies but impressive—and the server brought up food allergies right away, clearly a high priority. And the food was really delicious. We can’t wait to go back. A total find!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


LYFE Kitchen

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“They do have nuts in their kitchen, but every time you order they automatically ask if you have allergies, which is great. If you do have an allergy, they make the food separate and label it for serving (plus, allergens are labeled clearly on the menu).”

@betsygayle, who manages tree nut, shellfish, and fruit allergies


Tortas Frontera

“They have an amazing allergen menu you can find online (or in the Spokin feature on Chef Rick Bayless) that details every allergen in each menu item. It’s great because they never change the menu.”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Tiparos Thai Cuisine + Sushi Bar

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I ordered online for pickup. Their online menu was detailed, organized, and easy to read. I had the Pad See Eiw, and there was a space that allowed me to make a note about my allergy. I also called the restaurant just in case to make sure there was a clear understanding that there were no nuts in the dish I wanted and the chef would keep my food safe.”

@natalie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Summer House Santa Monica

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I called ahead after seeing they had a whole gluten-free menu to see if they could accommodate our food-allergic child. The host who answered the phone told me about their whole process and said they were really good with food allergies. She was right! They were amazing and my food-allergic kid’s food came out with a stick in it that was labeled ‘allergy’. So nice to be able to eat out at such an amazing restaurant.”

@thedyercrew, who manages tree nut, milk, egg, and celiac-gluten allergies


RPM Italian

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Everyone from the busboy to the 2 waiters we had were totally informed that I️ needed a gluten-free menu, as well as food. Every time they brought something to the table, they made sure to put it right next to me and say, “gluten-free” before the name of the dish. They print totally separate colored tickets for any food allergen so the kitchen knows right away.”

@drizzlekitchen, who manages peanut and celiac-gluten allergies

Monteverde Restaurant + Pastificio

“We had the most amazing dinner for our nut and sesame-allergic son. The restaurant created a menu for our table that was totally safe for him. He said at one point, “I love that I don’t have to be left out!” Our server was an allergy mom too so she totally got it! Everything was delicious. I would go back in a heartbeat!”

@sheberhard, who manages peanut, tree nut, sesame, and seed allergies


Formento’s

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“An upscale Italian restaurant that I can tell has great allergy friendly practices! The staff was insanely proactive in their service, always checking in and wanting to help. They asked if our group had any allergies upon being seated. Their menu also clearly stated they have gluten free pasta noodles. (for you gluten-free users out there!)”

@aliu, who manages a venison allergy


Foxtrot Market – Old Town

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Foxtrot carries tons of allergy-friendly products in store, including some Spokin Verified Brands! I enjoy running to Foxtrot for an Oatly Draft Latte or to pick up a quick afternoon snack from their market. Although they use some nut products including almond milk, their menu is labeled for allergens and their draft coffee helps avoid cross contamination.”

@alyssabauder, who manages a peanut allergy


Mott St.

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Had a special shellfish and shrimp-free menu just for my allergen! It was custom and showed me all their dishes without my allergen, which was fantastic for an Asian restaurant. They also checked to make sure I wasn’t allergic to oysters/mollusks before putting in my order, and said their philosophy was to accommodate people of all food allergies. Two thumbs up.”

@gracecheung, who manages a shrimp allergy


The VIG Chicago

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I had a salad with my allergens removed and their fries are gluten-free so I had those as well. The meal was good and it came out with allergen sticks in it. They do have gluten-free items marked on the menu and their kitchen is peanut-free.”

@lesswithlaur, who manages milk, egg, wheat, celiac-gluten, sesame, buckwheat, and maple allergies


sushiDOKKU

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“We ordered takeout from Sushi Dokku and it was so great. I felt comfortable with their allergy awareness from the start, as their menu notes that one of their sauces contains dairy. I placed the order online and noted our allergy. Someone called me from the restaurant to confirm that mayo (egg) was ok. I always appreciate this precaution! When we received the order, all of the boxes had an allergy sticker on them. The sushi was delicious and they even cut some of the rolls smaller so that it was easier for the kids to eat.”

@amgaetano, who manages a milk allergy


Wow Bao

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Ask for the allergy menu! Super helpful. Had a few communication issues (my fault) about dairy but the waitstaff allowed me to cancel the order and choose a new entree!”

@kschumacher, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, fish, and fruit


Eris Brewery + Cider House

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Overall great experience. Went with 16 kids! Ours were the only ones with food allergies. They have a mission on their website that they have menus for all and don’t want anyone to be left out. Waitstaff was a little overwhelmed, as anyone would be with 16 kids, so I had to double and triple check our kids’ foods were safe, which they were. Even for adults, they label cross contamination on their ciders with dairy and wheat.”

@amseidler, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and garlic allergies


Trump International Hotel + Tower

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at for gluten-free dining and frankly any allergy diet. All of the menus label what is and isn’t gluten free, but free, dairy free etc. They offer all their sandwiches in their restaurant and in room service as gluten free, as well as have made many specialty muffins and dishes gluten-free. The staff was incredibly well-educated and accommodating.”

@alyssabauder, who manages a peanut allergy


Native Foods Cafe

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“This vegan restaurant is the bomb! With the online order option on their website, we actually ordered delivery to the hotel which was so nice. Their very thorough allergy guide on the restaurant’s website was so very helpful. Be sure to go through the allergy guide on their website before ordering. I recommend doing this because it goes through the safety of their items as far as different allergens go depending on what they use in-house.”

@allergystrategy, who manages peanut, milk, egg, fish, and shellfish allergies

@alyssabauder, who manages a peanut allergy


City Barbeque

Location: Deerfield, Illinois

“This counter service chain restaurant was great with their allergy info. They have an amazing allergy menu that breaks down all the items. They offered to get me coleslaw from a new container and not use the one next to nuts and caught an item that I thought was safe and wasn’t!”

They do have nuts on the menu, but based on our conversation we felt comfortable eating here. My daughter ate the sushi and kids French toast here safely. A varied brunch selection. Will definitely be back!”

@vkotz, who manages peanut, tree nut, and wheat allergies


Blue Sushi Sake Grill

Location: Des Moines, Iowa

“They’re very allergy-aware regarding cross contamination, what ingredients are in their dishes, etc. Our waitress informed us of what would be safe, if the fryers were shared, and any other potential issues. She checked with both the chef and manager once we decided on a meal. They have an amazing selection of gluten-free and vegan items. Everything was delicious and my daughter had a great safe experience here. Everything has been safe and clearly flagged allergens.”

@vkotz, who manages peanut, tree nut, and wheat allergies


KANSAS


Slim Chickens

Location: Overland Park, Kansas

“I have a family member who frequently picks up meals from Slim Chickens for me. All of the allergen information is available online and, in our experience, the employees are equally knowledgeable. They carefully put my meal in a separate bag (with a different nut-free dressing) without being asked to ensure my meal didn’t get mixed up with someone else’s who got the nut dressing, which really impressed me.”

@user123456789, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

“Highly recommend this restaurant! They were incredibly well educated on what was and wasn’t gluten-free for me on the menu, as well as for my friend with a peanut allergy. They even included “GF”’ next to everything that was gluten-free on the menu, which I think is always helpful. Highly recommend the char-grilled oysters if you are a big oyster girl like myself.”

MASSACHUSETTS


Ginger Exchange – Symphony Boston

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

“I have been to Ginger Exchange multiple times and have had many positive experiences. They have a separate gluten-free menu, and note which sushi varieties are gluten-free. I have been reassured by the kitchen that they can prepare the food separately once I have told them I have an allergy. My favorite is their Thai Curry—it’s so good! I tried sushi for the first time recently, and my waitress went to check and make sure my order could be made gluten-free. Always check with the staff first, but they have good protocols for people with gluten intolerance/Celiac disease!”

Paris Creperie

Location: Brookline, Massachusetts

“The Paris Crêperie makes me feel SO safe when I go there. Their menu indicates which crepes can be made gluten-free, and when I asked for the gluten-free version the employee asked if I had an allergy. They have a separate grill they use, and she warned me that it would take extra time to make since there was only one. When I got my crepe to go, there was an allergy sticker on the outside and it even had been signed by the person who made it. I felt so safe and reassured eating it.”

@celiactivist, who manages celiac-gluten and oat allergies

@berlich, who manages tree nut and milk allergies

“Amical was a great drop-in restaurant while walking through Traverse City. We had no reservations but were quickly given wonderful seats on their outdoor patio. The menu was clearly labeled with the ingredients of each dish, as well as what could be prepared gluten-free. Our server was more than knowledgeable about the allergy info for each dish specifically, and was a great help.”

Olivia’s Organic Café

“Olivia’s Organic Cafe is completely gluten, dairy and peanut-free!

They marked the order with his allergens to alert the chefs.”

Revel Kitchen

Location: Brentwood, Missouri 

“I think this is my favorite spot to grab food in St. Louis! I’ve ordered three times since I’ve been here. It’s not an allergy-friendly kitchen but the online menu shows every ingredient used, which is really helpful. The bowls are all customizable, and everything tastes amazing! I love the mesquite tahini sauce for a creamy dairy-free dressing and the vegan brownies are a delicious dessert, too.”

@amandayoung03, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, fish, and shellfish allergies


Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh

Location: Clayton, Missouri 

“This restaurant has excellent educated staff about food allergies! They have an online allergen menu that shows exactly which foods have which allergens. As for tree nuts, the only thing not safe is the desserts, but I always ask them to change their gloves before making my food and it’s so yummy! I always get a stuffed pita with chicken, lettuce, seasoned rice, and tzatziki sauce inside.”

“It has been awhile since I’ve eaten here but online, they have gluten-free and vegan items marked, and also allow you to make certain items gluten-free or vegan.

@daphlevy, who manages a tree nut allergy


Kaldi’s Coffee on Skinker

MONTANA


Red Tractor Pizza

Location: Bozeman, Montana

“True to the welcoming feeling Bozeman has to offer, we were so excited to stumble on Red Tractor Pizza! Located a quick walk from the beautiful downtown area, their menu clearly stating dairy-free had us excited. We were immediately greeted, and we said we are a food allergy family. “Great! What do we need to manage tonight?” Wow! We gave our list, and the server knew almost everything off the top of her head, including mustard, yet asked for a few minutes because she wanted to double check and confirm the dough doesn’t have sesame in it. Wow, again! The server told us the cooks would use clean gloves and cook his pizza in the wood fire oven, but on top of aluminum foil (just to be extra safe).”

“Vegan restaurant that specializes in cashew-based cheese. Their menu is labeled for gluten and tree nut-containing items. (They had a symbol for peanuts as well, but none of the menu items actually contained peanuts.) They did state they would have a harder time accommodating a tree nut allergy since most of the dishes are made with their cashew cheese.”

Friedman’s

Location: New York, New York

“Friedman’s restaurant offers a gluten-free menu with many locations in NYC. When the owner, who has celiac disease, originally opened the restaurant she wanted to create a safe place for people with celiac to eat and enjoy delicious food. When I visited the location in Herald Square I asked about the menu and they said everything is gluten-free except for one of their soups. I told the server I had celiac and my food came out with an allergy flag as well. I ordered the chicken and waffles!”

Refinery Rooftop

“Amazing! They have an allergy menu and are very aware. They even asked questions about cross contamination, which was great. Food and drinks are also delicious, which is always an added bonus!”

COSI

Location: Columbus, Ohio

“They have an allergen menu available but I’ve found it doesn’t cover all food available. The staff have always been so helpful and even go as far as to hand me packages to read labels for my own piece of mind.”

@leesa, who manages peanut and egg allergies


Salt

Location: Lakewood, Ohio

“Salt is a James Beard nominated restaurant and the BEST place for a special dinner on the west side of Lakewood. They have an allergen menu available and my dinner was delicious. Vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free available. I had the red snapper and root vegetables. Also tried the octopus.”

@bellavoix67, who manages milk and garlic allergies


City Barbeque and Catering

@lattelauren, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Hot Chicken Takeover

Location: Westerville, Ohio

“Everything is nut-free except the waffles, which carry a may contain warning according to their allergen chart. My daughter enjoyed chicken, slaw, beans, mac and cheese, and sweet tea. The food was delicious!”

PENNSYLVANIA


Terrain Cafe

Location: Devon, Pennsylvania

“Terrain is a very fun garden shop with an adorable cafe attached. The menu is labeled with gluten-free options, and my server assured me they understood allergies and could prepare my food safely. He also brought out gluten-free crackers and a separate butter dish for me when the bread arrived. I really enjoyed my meal and loved the fun garden atmosphere!”

@celiactivist, who manages celiac-gluten and oats allergies


Dim Sum House By Jane G’s – Rittenhouse

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“A dim sum restaurant with a vegan menu is almost unheard of! My guy got to eat scallion pancakes and spring rolls—things he traditionally cannot because they contain eggs. We also got har gow, Singapore mai fun, sticky rice in lotus leaf and chrysanthemum tea! We are Chinese and this tasted delicious and authentic!”

@jackiengai, who manages tree nut, milk, and egg allergies


Senyai Thai Kitchen

Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

“SO many naturally gluten-free options and so much willingness from the staff to make almost any dish available in a gluten-free option. Other allergies such as soy or egg are also taken seriously and the menu is marked with what can be allergy-friendly and what cannot. Definitely worth going to in PGH!”

@gluttenous, who manages egg, wheat, rye, barley, and celiac-gluten allergies


Pastoli’s Pizza, Pasta + Paisans

Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

“Great independent pizza shop with an allergen-friendly menu. They even have decent gluten-free beer for the grownups”

@meiguizi, who manages cashew and milk allergies


Asuka

Location: West Chester, Pennsylvania

“Asuka has a HUGE gluten-free menu that features a lot of items that are hard to find gluten-free. We have ordered from here twice, and both times had a good experience. I reiterated many times that I had an allergy, and I always ask them to package my siblings’ food that contains gluten separately. My boxes of food are always labeled gluten-free (except the sushi, which I assume is made by a different person) and my receipt always says “Gluten allergy” on it. I love the General Tso’s chicken, the Hawaiian fried rice, and the spicy shrimp!”

@celiactivist, who manages celiac-gluten and oat allergies


TENNESSEE


Tai Chi Bubble Tea

Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee

“They have an allergen menu at the register. One of the only Asian cuisine restaurants I trust. No peanuts in anything.”

@the1bre, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe

Location: Knoxville, Tennessee

“BEST ALLERGEN MENU I have ever seen in my life. Even if you don’t eat here, check out their allergy menu on their website. Not only do they clearly list out each menu item and the allergen(s) each item contains, it also has notes on how to potentially alter your order in order to make that item allergen-free. Our order has been correct and they’ve been accommodating to our allergy requests, too.”

@mrs5716, who manages peanut, milk, and egg allergies


Stay Golden

Location: Nashville, Tennessee

“This place has a great brunch menu with a full coffee and alcohol bar and is fantastic about allergies. They have partnered with Picnik so they have a detailed allergen menu for all of the top allergens. I called just in case and they were very confident in their ability to accommodate. Highly recommend this place for anyone with allergies who struggle to find a place to safely enjoy brunch.”

@sm8, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint

Location: Nashville, Tennessee

“Great online allergy menu and well educated staff. Tasty eating for gluten-free and dairy/egg/nut-free.”

@kellyhummel, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk and egg allergies


Sun + Fork

Location: Nashville, Tennessee

“Love Sun and Fork. If you tell them you have an allergy, they whip out a chart that shows all top 8 allergens present in a menu item so they can tell you right there. They mark your allergy on the ticket and your food comes out with a stick that says “ALLERGY” on it so you know that the ticket has been read. Great place.”

@bluerecchair, who manages peanut, tree nut, and shellfish allergies


TEXAS


Picnik

Location: Austin, Texas

“Obsessed with Picnik! Dedicated peanut-free and gluten-free restaurant with a huge menu and many healthy and allergy-friendly options! Their allergen menu is AMAZING! It lists every ingredient, potential cross contamination, what allergens it contains and it’s available on their website so I could scan ahead of time! There were definitely more nut-free options on the weekend brunch menu than the weekday lunch/dinner one, so I would recommend going for brunch if you have nut allergies! They had vegan options too! Honestly a great spot for any food allergies!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanuts,tree nut, wheat and celiac-gluten allergies


P. Terry’s Burger Stand

Location: Austin, Texas

“P. Terry’s has a detailed allergen menu online. They use canola oil in the fryers and have a dedicated fryer for the fries. They don’t have a gluten-free bun but they can do a lettuce wrap. I’m pretty sure the cheese has soy so I always stick with a plain bacon burger.”

@abbykohl, who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, sesame, and celiac-gluten allergies


Twisted Root Burger Co.

Location: Dallas, Texas

“Online allergen menu is very helpful.”

@oliviakoscik, who manages tree nut allergies


Sundown at Granada

Location: Dallas, Texas

“We ate here for dinner and had an amazing time! The menu is clearly labeled with gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options and every ingredient in the dish is listed. They have a dedicated gluten-free fryer, as well as gluten-free pizza dough and burger buns. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and answered all of my allergy questions. I loved the parmesan pesto and chicken flatbread! We also ordered their chips and queso which was amazing!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanuts, tree nut, wheat, and celiac-gluten allergies


Hearsay Market Square

Location: Houston, Texas

“The other night we tried Hearsay for the first time and we were very impressed! Their menu is marked for gluten-free and the waitstaff has an allergen list for reference for other allergens. It was Houston restaurant week so we were able to each get a 3 course meal. They have quite a few other locations so we will be going back for sure!”

@abbykohl, who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, sesame, and celiac-gluten allergies


Spring Creek Barbeque

Location: Katy, Texas

“Allergen menu posted online. Very few items contain milk or nuts.  Unfortunately, there’s milk in the yummy bread, but the meats and veggies are tasty too.”

@sarahme82, who manages cashew, milk, and seed allergies


Gruene River Grill

Location: New Braunfels, Texas

“Great food, great waitstaff. Gluten-free options were easily accessible and easy to see. I didn’t see any nuts on the menu and we told our server we had a peanut allergy, and she said they don’t cook with peanuts. AMAZING food, I recommend for anyone!”

@alyssawake, who manages peanut and strawberry allergies


Earth Burger

Location: San Antonio, Texas

“This completely vegan restaurant has some of the coolest food items and shakes! There is a very helpful nutrition chart with all of the item ingredients as well, so you should definitely check that out! Definitely would go again!”

@allergystrategy, who manages peanut, milk, egg, fish, and shellfish allergies


Casa Rio

Location: San Antonio, Texas

“This restaurant was very willing to work with our food allergies. They confirmed they don’t use any peanuts or tree nuts, and were able to check and make sure there was no sesame and sunflower. They could make kids’ meals with no dairy and eggs. They also have a gluten-sensitive menu. They note which sauces contain gluten and substitutes for those sauces. The waitress came back to double check and told us the flour tortillas have eggs so we were able to change to corn. Only place we’ve felt safe eating out with our multiple food-allergy child.”

@efcooper, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, fish, seed, and celiac-gluten allergies

VIRGINIA


Massanutten Resort

Location: McGaheysville, Virginia

“I called one of their on-site restaurants today to find out if our daughter would be able to eat there. The person who answered the phone was able to answer my basic questions as they have an allergen menu readily available there. When I asked about the fryer, she readily suggested she get the manager so that she wouldn’t steer me wrong. The manager went through everything again, answered my fryer question, suggested roasting marshmallows for dessert, and told me to let the server know so that they tell those in the kitchen who then know to wash hands and/or change gloves. I was beyond impressed and said they will for sure see us.”

@punkinmama, who manages cashew and milk allergies


Tio Pablo

Location: Richmond, Virginia

“Tio Pablo is 100% gluten-free, food-wise (they do serve some beers that are not gluten-free, but have a great menu for margaritas and other drinks that are gluten-free). Because of that, it’s obviously “somewhat” of a shared space, so be mindful if you decide to eat in the bar area. Staff is very knowledgeable and the menu is clearly labeled with items that contain allergens other than gluten, such as dairy. We loved our tacos and margaritas.”

@kedbach, who manages milk, wheat, grain, and celiac-gluten allergies


Pierce’s Pitt Bar-B-Que

Location: Williamsburg, Virginia

“A great allergen menu, and a completely peanut-free facility!”

@niffer1001, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

“Allergy menu. Informed staff. Safe meal. Peanut/tree nut/sesame allergy and had pizza and French fries. Returned 2x times. Had fried chicken fingers and home made chips, too. Great experiences.”

@glutenfreedave, who manages milk, wheat, celiac-gluten, and meat allergies


Capitol Cider

Location: Seattle, Washington

“This is a 100% gluten-free restaurant and they have very clear allergy labeling on their menu. I was able to talk to the staff about egg/soy-free options and I was able to have the fish and chips! So tasty, and the drinks were also 10/10. So nice to dine at a restaurant and feel safe and taken care of!”

@bfriendly, who manages egg, soy, shellfish, wheat, fruit, and celery allergies


Portage Bay Cafe – South Lake Union

Location: Seattle, Washington

“One of the top 10 restaurants I’ve ever been to! They have the most thorough allergy binder I’ve ever seen—it lists every ingredient, may contain warnings, and highlights which of the top 8 allergens the dish contains! They’re a dedicated peanut-free restaurant (they don’t even let you bring outside food!) with a ton of gluten-free and nut-free options and clarify all your food allergies thoroughly before writing them down for the kitchen. They don’t use any nut milks, so I was safely able to have coffee and their gluten-free bread is made from scratch! The gluten-free french toast and classic breakfast sandwich were both SO good! Also, they use allergy sticks on any dish you order!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


WASHINGTON D.C.


Chaia Tacos

Location: Multiple Locations

Dedicated Free Of: Peanut, Tree Nuts, Soy, Fish, Shellfish, Wheat, Gluten, Mustard

Other Allergens They Can Accommodate: Milk, Egg, Corn, Potato, Legumes

“There was a place in the online ordering system to disclose food allergies and I just found out one of the owners manages a nut allergy in the family, so it makes sense how they totally understand food allergies! This was seriously the best place I ate at in D.C.! This is a “farm to table” completely vegetarian taco restaurant that is also 100% free of gluten and nuts! All the tacos except one (the potato and kale taco) can be made vegan! Their allergen statement on their website is also so clear! The menu rotates seasonally, but they always clearly label which tacos can be made vegan!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


The Hamilton

Location: Washington, D.C.

“The Hamilton is part of the Clyde’s restaurant group which has a group of restaurants throughout DC that all have an allergy policy! I had such a great experience at the Hamilton with my nut and gluten allergies! The menu is clearly labeled with GF symbols, so it’s easy to tell what is gluten-free. They don’t have a ton of gluten-free options because they now have a limited menu (no gluten-free pasta anymore), but they do have gluten-free bread for burgers and sandwiches. They also have a full sushi menu, and apparently the sushi is made in a separate kitchen! Our waiter came to our table after I had ordered to confirm that he checked with the chef and what I ordered was safe! When my meal came, they also restated my allergies to confirm!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


&pizza

Location: Washington, D.C.

“Seriously some of the best gluten-free pizza in DC! They have a super thorough allergen chart and ingredient list on their website. The menu is completely nut-free! The vegan cheese and buffalo sauce both contain coconut oil, and I was super impressed that this was noted on the menu! If you order a gluten-free pizza, they will ask if you want a glove change and will put a mat under your pizza to prevent cross-contact! The pizza was safe and so good!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, and celiac-gluten allergies


CAVA

Location: Washington, D.C.

“CAVA has an allergen menu that clearly says they don’t use peanuts, tree nuts, or eggs in their food! (Peanuts are anaphylactic for me). Have to be careful to avoid all legumes (less severe allergies for me) but ordering online makes it less stressful and easier to see what’s in each item, plus they say to email them with any allergen questions if needed. Will definitely be coming back here again!”

@sabudama, who manages peanut, tree nut, and legume allergies


Rasika

Location: Washington, D.C.

“Upon request, they will bring out a special menu that highlights every menu item that contains a certain allergen. Our waitress was really good about knowing what is in the food and informing the kitchen.”

@morganromo, who manages tree nut and milk allergies


Jaleo

Location: Washington, D.C.

“Tremendously helpful allergen menu; they actually take cross contamination risk into consideration, too! Educated and accommodating staff—wonderful and refreshing food as a plus.”

@indrani, who manages tree nut, milk, egg, banana, chicken, and chocolate allergies


Daikaya- Ramen (1F) – Izakaya (2F)

Location: Washington, D.C.

“This place was AMAZING! They brought an allergen menu that listed peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, dairy, etc. and listed the dishes that contained the allergens. Our server then crossed off what wasn’t safe for my daughter and shared that one of the chefs had a peanut allergy. Could not recommend this place more. Food was delish and one of the best allergy experiences we’ve ever had. Our server, Lucas, was phenomenal and he said both of his brothers were allergic to peanuts. Second visit was another great experience and this time they actually had additional menus including vegan and gluten-free!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Fruitive

Location: Washington, D.C.

“The menu is super helpful, and they have an allergen chart! They have gluten-free bread and waffles. All of the food is 100% plant based. I loved the overnight oats and smoothies!”

@maddyarend, who manages milk and celiac-gluten allergies


WISCONSIN


Monk’s Bar + Grill – at the Wilderness

Location: Baraboo, Wisconsin

“Great allergy menu and protocols in place. Manager offered options depending on our comfort level with shared fryers—we opted not to share so we used a turbo fryer and had a safe meal. Kiddo chose nuggets and fries.”

@kellyhummel, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, and egg allergies


Egg Harbor Cafe

Location: Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

“The menu is very clearly labeled for gluten-free options, and there is even a separate gluten-free menu for simplicity. The gluten-free dishes are then brought out on different color plates for clarity, allowing you to be sure that the chefs knew to make it allergen free. I personally order the Cinnamon Roll breakfast every time I go as the rolls are easily the best gluten-free version of cinnamon rolls I’ve ever tasted.”

@lmulcahy21, who manages a celiac-gluten allergy


Short Stack Eatery

Location: Madison, Wisconsin

“Amazing breakfast spot! They are open early and late and serve breakfast all day. The menu is clearly marked with which meals are gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, and contain nuts. The wait was long but it was worth it! I got the blueberry stack and they were some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had! They also serve great coffee and freshly squeezed juices”

@reganh, who manages a mushroom allergy


Smoke Shack

Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

“They have gluten-free items labeled on the menu. Waitstaff was kind and receptive regarding my specification of an “allergy”. Delicious and I never felt sick after eating there!”

@trish99, who manages a celiac-gluten allergy


Fork + Tap

Location: Port Washington, Wisconsin

“Cute waterfront casual and family-friendly spot with a surprisingly helpful menu. Vegan and gluten-free items were noted and there was a note that there are peanuts in the kitchen—because it is in 1 dish which we just appreciated to see. Seeing vegan options called out in Wisconsin felt pretty rare, too. We shared a few appetizers including a funnel cake mozzarella sticks that were gluten-free, nachos, and pretzels with cheese dip, and my daughter had a Reuben sandwich with fries (they use soy oil)—our waitress had a tree nut allergy and we felt like we were in very good hands!”
