Applebee’s gluten free menu does not discriminate against those with NCGS. They include items for those that have certain wheat intolerances, allergies and Celiac Disease.
So if you have gluten sensitivity, Applebee’s has a plethora of options for you. Just be sure to warn them about cross contamination, as you would anywhere you go, if you have gluten sensitivity.
Some of the favorite gluten free menu items are steaks, ribs, appetizers and salads, but you need to be certain that you order these options without gluten containing sides. Just sub for a potato, soup or salad (no croutons).

Popular Gluten Free Items at Applebee’s
Queso Blanco and Chips & Salsa
For starters, the Queso Blanco or Chips & Salsa are a great start to an even better meal. This is enjoyed by all – not just those that can’t eat flour.
Ribeye with Onion Steak Topper
Applebee’s offers a plethora of steaks, but my favorite steak is the Ribeye topped with grilled, smothered onions. Wowzers!
And, unlike many restaurants, you have a TON of sides to choose from. Below are just a sampling to choose from.
Loaded Baked Potato
To me, a steak is not complete without a loaded baked potato all covered in sea salt.
But if carbs or not your thing, order the side of Seasonal Vegetables to complement your low-carb meal.
Tuscan Bean Soup with chicken & Sausage
If you’re not into sharing appetizers, but like to get your meal started off on the right foot, try ordering this Tuscan Bean Soup with Chicken & Sausage. I feel cozy just thinking about it.
Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp
Sometimes steak is just too heavy for dinner. Maybe you had a big lunch, but don’t want a salad.
Order the Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp dinner, and choose a gluten free side to accompany it.
Fiesta Chicken Chopped Salad with Mexi Ranch Dressing (no croutons)
This chopped salad is so satisfying that you will never miss the carbs. And there is total of ELEVEN dressings to choose from, so you’re sure to find the perfect flavor combination, in my opinion.
Sometimes you want the surf and no turf, and Applebee’s has offerings for this as well. Try the Blackened Tilapia, with a gluten free side to satisfy this seafood craving.
You can top it off with one of the MANY gluten free sauces Applebee’s offers. I recommend the Chunky Roma Pepper Relish, the Pico de Gallo, or the Balsamic Glaze for this entree.
Applebee’s Riblets Platter
Oh my goodness. Is there anything better than a rack of ribs, all saucy, grilled and messy?
I think not. Go order this right now, with – of course – a gluten free side.
Kid’s Chicken Griller with Apple Dippers and Yogurt
Applebee’s does not overlook children that have gluten intolerance menu. While the menu is small, most kid’s menu options are small in general, so this is no exception.
Enjoy Applebee’s Gluten Free Offerings
I cannot express to you how impressed I am with Applebee’s exclusive gluten free menu. Having a grandma that has Celiac Disease, I see how much pleasure she’s lost in dining out, which is one of the few joys the elderly get to participate in.
But no longer is this a chore. She has plenty of options at Applebee’s.
