We are looking for safe places as well. We will be at the Emerald Isle in a few weeks.

We were at Hatteras last year right after our diagnosis and we ate out a LOT. On Hatteras, there are no chain restaurants. There are some at Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. I found one, Sonny's, that I felt ok with (Hatteras Island). In retrospect, I think I took a lot of risks last year. My only question was "Do you use peanut oil?"

We will have a rented house, so some meals will be safe (cooked by us) but I am sure that we will be eating out a lot too.
However, that is usually the only question that I ask when dining out, and often call ahead. For my son, we usually just get him a cheeseburger, grilled cheese or spagetti. I make sure that we tell the waitress about his allergy.
Do you recall any of the places that you were at last year (names)?
We also avoid places that have shelled peanuts on tables.

Always ask for the owner or manager. The waitstaff does not always understand the seriousness of a food allergy...especially peanut allergy, cross contamination and residue.
Once I find a safe restaurant I stick with it and visit the same ones over and over again. Always ask what type of oil they use, and if they use any nuts in their restaurant.
Please be sure to post back here with your results and travel experience as we look forward to visiting that same area soon!
Stay Safe and enjoy your trip! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

When i last checked, if you call 911 in northeastern NC, especially in the outer banks area, you will get basic EMT responders who are not allowed to carry or administer epi.
Check with foodallergy.org for the latest info.
