AllergyEats Releases 2016 Top 10 List of Allergy-Friendly Restaurants


Earlier this month, AllergyEats announced its annual top 10 list of the most allergy-friendly restaurant chains.

Diners rating restaurants on AllergyEats gave a thumbs up to Rainforest Café for the first time ever.

The list is divided by large and small chains. Rainforest Café is number one on the list of small restaurant chains.

The ratings are based solely on a restaurant's ability to accommodate food allergies.

The website and mobile app is run by Paul Antico, a father of children with food allergies. Mr. Antico is also on the Board of Directors of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. AllergyEats lists more than 850,000 restaurants across the U.S., searchable by location.

Here are the Top 10 restaurants:

Large chains (more than 50 restaurants)

  • Maggiano’s Little Italy
  • Chipotle Mexican Grill
  • Mellow Mushroom
  • Red Robin Gourmet Burgers
  • P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

Small chains (under 50 restaurants)
