Hey All, I get so ill just half way thru a meal at Cracker Barrel. I love to go out to eat but have to be so careful what I order. Hubby and I love to eat at IHOP as well and I always get an omelette's but for the last few times I ended up getting sick. So I asked the manager and found out that they put pancake batter to make their omelette's fluffy. I am in the south and talking with restaurant managers I have figured out they have no clue what goes in most of their foods.

I know this is an old post, but I'm relatively new to SP and I've never had problems at Cracker Barrel. It is one of the restaurants we go to regularly....But then, I have a relatively mild reaction.

Tweety - I don't know your habits, but could you be ingesting hidden gluten maybe? One celiac person I know has pretty immediate reactions (with a couple hours at least). I cannot speak for others. Just a thought.

It's hard to say, symptoms with me seem to vary from time to time. I will have no symptoms sometimes and then the next time a little bit of issues and then the times like 2 weeks ago where it was just bad all around.

I've never eaten at Cracker Barrel since dx. Have you been contaminated any other time? I'm no help.

I had researched through forums and found that some people with Celiac could successfully eat at Cracker Barrel restaurants when ordering their Grilled Chicken Tenderloins and veggies. I have tried that on several occasions sometimes feeling ok and sometimes not. 2 weeks ago I had called in an order for take out. Within 45 mins. of eating, my stomach started cramping and bloating badly. It's really gross I know but I had been constipated for 2 weeks and was on the road to getting regular again. To me this was a sign that maybe there was some cross contamination at their grill.

Anyway, I emailed Cracker Barrel to ask them if any menu items were safe and when i received that list was shocked to find that the chicken (grilled) wasn't on it. Plus they advised to tell the manager of my situation because there is only one grill so the chances of cross contam. is high.

I'm just curious of anyone elses experiences with this restaurant. I had gone to my doctor and explained what happened. He said that I had food poisoning but from what I hear my symptoms were too mild....
