Cracker Barrel Gluten Free Menu

I am so excited to share with you the Gluten Free Menu at Cracker Barrel.  I LOVE Cracker Barrel and have been searching high and low for an official menu.   I have continued to eat at Cracker Barrel since going gluten free but this menu makes me feel better about my food choices.  I have been quite limited in my choices and of course when dining out your your best judgement.  In fact it expands the horizon of what I might choose to eat.  Of course there is no guarantee of cross contamination (just like a most any restaurant) because they share the kitchen but I wanted to share this with you.

I was told by the hostess to tell you server that you are gluten free and then they will bring the manager to speak to you.  When you order the manager will flag your order for extra precaution.

UPDATE:  This was originally posted on February 17, 2014. The menu has been updated however I have Celiac and I am EXTREMELY sensitive. I have no problem eating at Cracker Barrel. I personally eat the grilled pork chop, grilled cat fish, hamburger with no bun and the eggs/bacon/sausage and country ham with zero concern. In addition I eat the Chef Salad. This post was written years ago and YES the menu has changed. It is your decision if you choose to eat at Cracker Barrel or not but I have no issues eating there.  I do request that they clean the grill when I eat at Cracker Barrel and I have never had an issue.  Hope this helps.  This is a link to the updated allergen menu at Cracker Barrel

    1. Me too! I was thrilled with this! Of course if your location doesn’t have this menu you can pull it up online here now 🙂

      1. I am upset and frustrated Cracker Barrel changed their menu! The corn muffins are no longer gluten free! This makes me not want to come back.

  1. I agree the new menu is much better than before BUT they need to educate their staff, including the managers. Our Little Rock location didn’t know much about gluten free except that they had a new menu. We talked to the manager only because she happen to walk by. I asked if the ranch dressing was gluten free – she didn’t know–said she would check but never came back to our table. We asked the server to make sure the food didn’t come into contact with other gluten items and 5 minutes later, she brought us a salad with croutons!
    My 7 year old granddaughter has Celiac – so we have to be very careful!
    Cracker Barrel – please train your staff!!

  2. I cannot thank you enough for sharing!!! Traveling thru 2 states right now to visit family & it’s so hard to find food that won’t kill me with gluten yet is still actual food. Just saw a hotel next to a cracker barrel & thought I’d Google it. There ya were making my day!! if only everything was that easy 🙂 thanks & have a blessed day!!!

  3. Just wanted to let everyone know, the fried apples are sadly NOT gluten free anymore. I had been dining at Cracker Barrel while on vacation (eating two servings of fried apples every week) & a last night manager came running over to our table to tell me that they were not gluten free. Sigh.. Explains why I’ve been sick & for the past 3 weeks. Kudos to him for catching it though! Wish the kitchen staff would’ve caught it 3 weeks ago, but live & learn. Next time I will talk to a manager! It’d be worth double checking at your local Cracker Barrel! Better safe than sorry! 🙂

    1. Thank you I have been eating them because the gluten free menu had them listed. I got sick also and thought it was something else but now I know I will write the company.

  4. I’m curious; just what food does Cracker Barrel offer on which to spread their ” *100% Natural Blueberry or *Sugar Free Syrups Honey, Jams, Preserves, and Low Sugar Fruit Spreads” on? Maybe just knowing the syrups, honey, jams, etc. are GF will keep the glutes in the pancakes, toast, and muffins from reacting poorly to those of us with Celilac!

  5. Came to Cracker Barrel cause it said it had a GF menu. Right away I was skeptical when I read “for guests who wish to reduce gluten in their diets.”
    Everything is cooked on 1 grill, they don’t have separate pans to cook eggs, so breakfasts are out of the question. The can grill your burgers, chicken etc. on a piece of tinfoil. And the staff is not really knowledgeable if you have a gluten free allergy.

  6. They have a GF menu but it is very limited, nothing like posted here, not I would not recommend this place if you have a gluten allergy

    1. So true, we just tried to get a gluten-free meal at a Cracker Barrel and were told that the only thing that was safe was some of the sides. They offered to make my daughter a baked potato and some cooked carrots. We ended up leaving and going to a nearby Applebees where she could at least get a grilled chicken breast. Disappointed in Cracker Barrel but at least they are not making promises they can’t keep.

    1. Same here. I am not a mom, I am actually a child. My uncle is taking me to Cracker Barrel tomorrow morning, and I know for sure their grits, eggs, and bacon IS indeed gluten free. I know it might not be right for me to feel this way, but every time we go, they bring out the biscuits and toast and stuff, and I always feel a little jealous when I see my family eating them. And my brother always gets pancakes and my cousin gets the muffin, and I just want to eat them like normal. I haven’t lived with celiacs disease my whole life. I’m 12 now and I was diagnosed with it when I was 9, and the year before I was diagnosed with diabetes, so I am always really upset when I see that I cannot eat these foods. Although, it does make me feel better if I bring a gluten free Udis bagel. So please Cracker Barrel, make more gluten free options!

      1. Yes, I agree 100% please make more gluten free options for us living with Celiac disease! Yes, the grits, bacon and eggs are indeed gluten free. I have been diagnosed for 7 years with Celiac. Hang in there! It is hard but we have to keep in mind how bad it makes us feel and that this is what is best for our bodies. Hugs!

      2. I know. What you mean. Denny’s. Restaurant. Has alot of gluten free food. I’ve. Never been sick. Enjoy if you see a Denny’s.

  7. Just left Crackle Barrel in Nashville. Only offer wheat free veg. Does not mention.rye or barley. No meats on wheat free menu. Very disappointing. This restaurant should not be on gluten free list.

  8. I have been gluten free for several years and think that Cracker Barrel is one of the safer places to eat. I am also milk free and egg free. I am more flexible with the dairy but not gluten or eggs. White cheeses and cream and butter don’t seem to bother me as much although most of the time I carry my own creamer. They actually cleaned the grill for me today and I did get the fried apples. They are gluten free. I am having rainbow trout broccoli and fried apples but they were sadly out of sweet potatoes.

    1. I agree with you. I don’t have any issues at Cracker Barrel. They always clean the grill for me. I have enjoyed the rainbow trout and pork chops with no issues.

  9. I was with a family group today that was heading to Cracker Barrel and I saw your post about all the gluten free things on the menu. However, the server brought us the wheat free menu and it was only the side dishes. They can’t assure us that any of the meat items are wheat or gluten free because of how they are cooked. So I sat and watched others eat their big meals with sides, and what was available to me was overcooked side dishes and eggs. Your post may be misleading to the people who really must avoid gluten.

    1. Cynthia, I have Celiac and I am EXTREMELY sensitive. I have no problem eating at Cracker Barrel. I personally eat the grilled pork chop, grilled cat fish and the eggs/bacon/sausage and country ham with zero concern. In addition I eat the Chef Salad. This post was written years ago and YES the menu has changed. It is your decision if you choose to eat at Cracker Barrel or not but I have no issues eating there.

  10. Issue: on here I have seensomesay bacon gf, but not on wheat free menu? Why aren’t hash browns wheat free?

    1. I can eat the bacon with no problem and used to be able to eat the hash browns but can no longer eat them without being really sick.
