Texas Roadhouse Gluten Free Menu

When I first began my gluten free diet about 4 years ago, one of the first places I discovered that I could still go to is Texas Roadhouse, forever giving them a warm place in my heart.   However, back on March 16, 2009, we were disappointed to report that the Texas Roadhouse had since cancelled their gluten free menu

After reviewing their official website today, it looks like they now have the following message posted (on their contact page, click gluten free menu):

We are sorry but we no longer offer our gluten-free menu. It was a very difficult decision, but we concluded that due to the multi-use of utensils, supplier changes, substitutions or the possibility of human error, we could not offer our guests a total assurance that the items were indeed 100% gluten-free. As such, we decided that the best approach was for the management team at each restaurant to work with guests individually to ensure that they can make the most informed menu decisions. Please ask to speak to the managing partner, who will be happy to accommodate any requests or provide information about our food and preparation. Thank you for your interest in Texas Roadhouse.

In other words, they still have a gluten free menu and a knowledgable staff, they are just handling these requests at the local restaurant level and protecting themselves in cause someone gets cross-contaminated (glutened) on accident.    

We can confirm that since this announcement a few months ago, we have eaten at the Texas Roadhouse several times without any troubles, so if you decide to eat at Texas Roadhouse, just let your server and their manager know about your gluten free needs.    Oh, and for anyone wondering if there is one in your area, you can find the closest location here.

    Stupid lawyers! These restaurant chains take down their gluten free menus because they’re terrified of being sued.

    Sadly, that is often times true. McDonald’s did the same thing. They used to list gf items on their website and now they just tell people to read the ingredients and decide if they want to eat there or not. We can’t stand MD’s food so it doesn’t affect us, but it’s unfortunate that they take this stance about gf items for those who want to eat there. .


    i think they should have it for people that are on gluten free diets like me that means i will never come to your place again i will find another steakhouse to go to goodby rochelle

    I went to the one in Grand Rapids, Mi in Kenwood and the manager came to my table and asked me what I was thinking about ordering, after telling him a few things he pulled out his phone and showed me pictures of the ingredients he had taken. Very nice of him and he even asked if I want the grilled cleaned and my steak wrapped in tinfoil to avoid crosscontamination. He said the items they make are from scratch which h is why they don’t have a menu. I was very pleased! I will be eating there again!
