Denny's Gluten Free Menu - Celiac Disease

Denny's Gluten Free Menu

Although they aren’t as prominent as they once were, it seems that there are still a large number of Denny’s restaurants scattered throughout the United States. As a result, you’d assume they had a prominent gluten free menu listed somewhere within their official website.  Unfortunately, a review of their official website doesn’t list a gluten free menu, but instead a nutrition/allergens listing, which can be viewed here.

If you decide you want to try eating gluten free at a Denny’s, here is some information I dug up about gluten free options on their menu, but please note this is slightly outdated so as always please explain your needs to your server prior to placing your order.

    Update your menu, dennys does not have a dedicated fryer for there so called gf fries.

  2. james ward says:

    Still no designated fryer or gluten free menus.

  3. TJ Frohlick says:

    Why bother eating at a joke restaurant that doesn’t take celiac disease seriously?

  4. Ashley says:

    This was very helpful for my mother who has celiac disease! Thank you for giving us a list of the gluten free foods!

  5. Jan says:

    Dennys now (June 2015) has Gluten Free on their main menu in the restaurant. They also have the most amazing gluten free English muffin I have ever eaten. Give them a try they are very accommodating in Waco.

    • I was not aware of the GF English muffin, but seems like I need to take a trip toe Denny’s!


      • Joe Mc Daniel says:

        Kim, If you like your English muffin a bit crispier ask them to put it on their grill for a bit other wise it is excellent!

      • Sophia says:

        August 2016: they still don’t have a dedicated fryer and they toast the GF muffin in the same toaster as regular breads,

        • Joe Mc daniel says:

          I found out what gluten free English muffinst hey use. They are Glutino brand and I buy them at my local WalMart and Scnucks grocery stores. Walmart only charges $4.99 for six. They are great and I use them now for hamburger buns and toast them and eat them with grape jelly and peanut butter. Yum!

        • Joyce says:

          I bought these toaster bags on amazon and they put my English muffin in them before putting in toaster. Have no problems!

  6. Paul Hearty says:

    Are the gluten free sausages casein free to?

  7. Harvey Regan says:

    I’m at a Denny’s right now. The server said they only cook potatoes and tortillas in the fryolator. I asked if the French fries were coated. He said they were; I didn’t order the nachos
