Bob Evans Allergy Friendly:)
We went to Bob Evans restaurant tonight. When we told them about our milk allergy, the manager came out and spoke with us in person. He spoke with the chef and made sure that the kids' pasta was boiled in a new pot with no butter added. He also substituted the garlic toast for french fries which were dairy-free. He cooked the burgers on a griddle that never has butter on it and didn't toast the bun (to avoid any contact with butter). He also left off the cheese. In addition to this, he read the ingredients of the other kid's menu items and informed us that the grilled chicken and potato smiles were also dairy-free. It was such a pleasant experience. I thanked him and the waitress for their kindness and told them that we would definitely be coming back thanks to their service and help with our kids' allergies. It's nice to know that some restaurants will accommodate our needs and do so with the greatest of care.
