Does anyone go to Uno Chicago Grill? Are they PA friendly? A new one is opening down the street and I was interested. Their website gives no information. I don't want to call them yet - we really don't go to restaurants with my PA daughter, but I thought I'd ask here.

Uno's is one of the few restaurants we take our dairy, egg and peanut allergic son. The manangers were very helpful the first time I called and even cooked pasta special just for my son before we arrived. We always order the same thing for my son, grilled chicken, plain pasta and veggie.

We went to one in D.C. and they were very nice about my son's allergy. They checked on everything. He ended up eating mac and cheese.

We ate at one once in Centerville, Ohio. I asked about allergies and the manager came right out and spoke to us. He said he would double check everything and we ended up ordering Mac n'Cheese but he said to make sure the waitress noted it as well and the kitchen would be extra careful. He said they had pesto in the kitchen but that is the only nut her mentioned other then to stay away from desserts. I felt pretty comfortable as he said (at the time, and this was 1 year ago) that the mac n' cheese came in a little container they take the lid off, microwave it, and put it in another bowl. You should always double check as things may have changed but that is our experience.

I went to the Unos in Bethesda MD. I had phoned the manager in advance to see if there were peanuts in their kitchen, etc. He assured me that the only peanuts were in a couple desserts which were kept separate from the pizzas. When I got there, there was a giant barrel of peanuts in shells for people to take to their table. I was really irritated, because the fool didn't think to mention it, and my daughter was spooked and weepy afterward. (We left immediately.) I'm very discouraged with restaurants in general.

Do they still make that goopy pb dessert? We stopped going there when they put that on the menu. I'm too worried that the pb goop could get all over the place - counters, tables, waiter/waitresses, etc.

The menu on their website shows a peanut butter cup topped with ice cream and drizzled with peanut butter and chocolate sauce. It doesn't look goopy, but it's peanut butter nonetheless. They also have a bread with pesto baked in it and a salad with walnuts.

ARGH! I looked at the menu, but never even thought to check desserts since we would NEVER get one. OK - you sold me...not a place I need to go. Don't need a waitress touching a smeary plate of pb goop and then DD's.

I just looked at the UNO website menu - it's very helpful that they have allergens listed for every food on the menu. But, wow, the "Brown Rice Pilaf" has peanut listed in the allergens. Who woulda guessed? I wonder if that's because of a CC risk. If so, good for them for labeling to that level.
I didn't review the rest of the didn't get far enough to see if there was a goopy PB dessert still on the list.
Sigh - we're pretty much an Outback family for the time being. They have a gluten-free menu (which we need), and they only have one menu item (a particular dressing or sauce that comes with a particular salad) that has peanut.
I like P.F. Chang's for myself (gluten-free menu), but we haven't been brave enough to try it with the kiddos yet.

Our Uno's still have people cracking open peanuts at the bar. We stay away.

We've eaten at the one at Wisconsin Dells with no problem. Ds always chooses to make his own pizza. There were no items containing peanut butter that I can remember.
