Waffle House is a popular chain restaurant specializing in breakfast diner-style food and late night hours. When you think of restaurants with diet-friendly options Waffle House is not first to come to mind however thanks to their large selection of breakfast food Waffle House may be more gluten free friendly than you think. We analyzed their allergen menu and all the information we could find online to bring you the top gluten free choices at Waffle House.
According to their allergen menu, there are as many as 31 gluten free options at Waffle House depending on your level of gluten sensitivity. The main things to stay away from at Waffe House will be their sandwiches and the bread options offered with almost every meal. Unfortunately their waffles, pancakes, biscuits and toast contain gluten and must be avoided on a gluten free diet. You can however add Hashbrowns and/or Tomato Slices to any meal to round it out as they do not contain wheat or gluten.
The main gluten free meals at Waffle House are the Egg Breakfast, Hashbrown Bowls and Omelet Breakfasts. The Egg Breakfasts allow you to pair your choice of protein with 2 eggs cooked to your liking and a side. Hashbrown Bowls are similar but Hashbrowns replace the eggs as the star of the meal. Another option is their selection of Omelets like the Cheesesteak Omelet or Fiesta Omelet which are free from gluten containing ingredients.
While these menu items are confirmed to not contain gluten, they are prepared on shared surfaces with gluten containing food therefore there is a high risk of cross contamination if you have high gluten sensitivity.
