If you do decide to go out? Where do you go most often and what do you get?

Does anyone use Jewel Bakery rolls or vienna bread?

Does anyone eat at Portillos? Any reactions?

most often - there is a pizza place in town that has no nuts or sesame. Fast food - sad as that is. for us red lobster works becuase what my son orders never goes near the grill or fryer. He gets steamed crab, steamed veggies and plain baked potatoe and sometimes apple sauce. We have tried outback and allergy wise they seem pretty good - but of course my husband got a hair in his food so he doesn't want to go back. Applebees no way. I think that chillies and on the border have allergen facts on their web sites which is helpful. and other wise I call ahead - Oh I loved eating out in Disney - never felt so relaxed out to dinner with my son.
sorry haven't heard of those other places/ items.

Does anyone know if McDonalds is safe, My daughter said she asked and grandson did have mcnuggets, I know they have walnut salad! Is it possible he got cross contamination? Thanks

I think experience with McDonald's varies. At the ones here, there are nuts from the flurry topping all over the place. I've seen the people who work there wipe them off the counters onto the floor (and probably onto other counters in the process) with their bare hands. When I asked about procedures to avoid cross contamination of allergens they just started at me with a blank look on their faces. I have gotten this same reaction at other places recently so I don't think the passage of time has improved allergy awareness around here. We don't go to McD's.

We have used McDonalds across the US and haven't had a reaction - I do ask at every one we go to what oil they use. At home, we go to the same McDonalds every time - they seem to be clean. For the first time a couple of weeks ago I tried Wendy's and right by the cash register there was a huge poster and it listed every food they serve and then beside it was the top 8 allergens and if that food had an allergen in it the box was marked. It was amazing - I plan to use that Wendy's now for fast food - geez it sounds like we do fast food all the time, but really its about 2 times a month.
