AllergyEats, a guide to allergy-friendly restaurants in the United States, has just released its 2018 list of restaurant chains that have earned top ratings on the AllergyEats app and website, per feedback from the food allergy community. The chains on this highly-anticipated annual list -- including local favorite Weber Grill -- are rated solely on how well they have accommodated food-allergic diners over the past year.
"We are excited to announce that four restaurant chains are new to the list this year, earning top honors for their exceptional food allergy accommodations, as determined by AllergyEats users. These new additions -- Weber Grill, Bertucci's Italian Restaurant, LongHorn Steakhouse, and 110 Grill -- have shown the same outstanding commitment toward accommodating food-allergic guests as those chains that consistently make our list, such as Maggiano's Little Italy, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Burtons Grill, and Legal Sea Foods," said Paul Antico, founder and CEO of AllergyEats. "Weber Grill is the smallest chain to ever earn a spot on this prestigious Top 10 list, and we applaud their tremendous commitment to food allergy training and protocols."
"For the over 15 million Americans with food allergies, it's incredibly important to know which restaurants are the best at creating allergy-friendly meals so these individuals can more comfortably dine out," Antico added.
