Top 10 Allergy-Friendly Independent Restaurants in America

BOSTON –AllergyEats is pleased to announce its 2019 list of the Top 10 Allergy-Friendly Independent Restaurants in America. Released for the first time this year, this prestigious list is derived from the restaurant reviews of food-allergic diners across the U.S. on the AllergyEats app and website. Many restaurants ranking in the Top 10 are located in popular summer travel destinations, making the release of this list particularly timely.

The Top 10 Allergy-Friendly Independent Restaurants in America:

“AllergyEats congratulates the restaurants on this list for having earned the highest allergy-friendliness ratings from the food allergy community,” Paul Antico, Founder and CEO of AllergyEats said. “While no guarantee of a “safe” meal can ever be made, these are the restaurants where AllergyEats restaurant raters have had their best experiences, which is invaluable information when traveling. By publishing these lists, AllergyEats continues to further its mission of connecting diners with community-recommended restaurants while highlighting those that are consistently ranked best.”

“AllergyEats has helped us eat out successfully in several states and enjoy traveling without always having to bring along a cooler,” said AllergyEats app reviewer “Stinson Electric” on iTunes. “It’s extremely helpful to be able to read others’ reviews and experiences. We would be lost without this app!”

Notably absent from this Top 10 list are restaurants west of Illinois. AllergyEats recently published an analysis of its user ratings demonstrating that restaurants in the western half of the U.S. are generally lagging their New England and Mid-Atlantic counterparts in properly accommodating the food allergy community by a significant margin. However, there are some standouts gaining a strong following in California, Arizona, and other western states, hopefully setting a new standard in their markets.

While this Top 10 list references only independent restaurants (with lunch and dinner service, at a minimum), visitors to the AllergyEats app and website can also find ratings and reviews of chain restaurants, ice cream shops & bakeries, Disney World dining options, and more.

    Check out Renee’s Pizza in Troy, Michigan
    Great gluten free, nut free pizza. They also do dairy free.
    I cannot have gluten and it’s my favorite place to dine!

    I’m vacationing in Ashville this year. Was so excited to see a restaurant on your list. Then noticed the reviews were really old. Things change.

    You need to get Intentional Foods of Mesa, AZ on the list. They should be #1. They are a Top 8 free restaurant, bakery and small market of Top 8 free goods and treats. They also accommodate many other allergies outside of the Top 8 and actually taste incredible! Please get them in your system!

    It would really be nice for you to expand your list. There are many places all over the country set up or willing to be allergy supportive. I’ve traveled by car from Utah to Wisconsin to Mississippi and had only a couple of experiences where local “dives” couldn’t or wouldn’t bend over backwards to my three allergies. Thumbs up mid west and west.

    Any restaurants in Woodstock, Georgia? I find that there is sometimes one item on the menu. If not, I just order a salad and bring my own homemade salad dressing.

    Please check out Intentional Foods in Mesa, Arizona. They are amazing! I only have to be gluten free because of celiac and I love this place! They sell frozen breads to take home and other goods as well. We will continue going back again and again!
