I live in Iowa and we have a restaurant named the Texas Road House. The thing is, they have peanuts on the middle of every table, then after you shell it, you throw the shell on the floor. So the floor is always covered with peanut shells.

Does anyone have this restaurant in their town?

Yes, we have one down the road. It is a chain. They should have a sign on the door cautioning PA people.

I know they definitely should.
My boss brought left over food to work for lunch from there and I was so scared to be around her, not like the left overs would hurt me but just the thought of the food being around all the peanuts, UGH.

I live in Texas and every one I've ever been to does have a sign outside the restaurant near the door. Something like -- if you are allergic to peanuts don't eat here...
Used to love that place until my little boy was diagnosed.

LOL...I mean not...it would be nice...but that...they are supposed to have one. The one local to me has a sign on the outside of the building.
If they don't have a sign and it concerns you, call your local health department. If restaurants have to put of signs for microwave use (at least they used to), this should be no different.

The one near me (outside of Boston) has a big yellow sign like a street sign in the front of the restaurant alerting people to the peanut dust.

Sure do. My inlaws would always make a point of telling us how *much* they enjoyed the place. Especially when my cubs were within earshot. Or right in front of them. Did I mention we now have so little communication with my IL's that they don't even know I'm 26 weeks pregnant? And yet live within 7 minutes of us...........
