List Rules Vote up your favorite go-to spots that offer gluten-free options.

Join us as we rank the best gluten-free restaurants. If you have a gluten allergy, it can be hard to find the right place to eat. While most popular chains offer at least some gluten-free menu items, some places are better than others.

Whether you’re looking to play it safe with everyday fast-food chains like McDonald’s and Wendy’s or are in the mood to sit down and dine somewhere like TGI Fridays and Ruby Tuesday, these restaurants are known for offering gluten-free menu items. That said, it's best to talk to your waiter or cashier before you order, that way they can be aware of your specific food requirements before they start prepping your meal.

Vote up the best gluten-free places to eat so people can see which restaurants are the most popular. Is your go-to restaurant of choice missing? Don't be shy - add it to the list below!
