With food allergies, it’s important to be informed before you go out to eat. This is especially true when you have kids. All that loading and unloading and the fussiness that hunger brings… it’s a wonder us parents don’t meltdown first! There’s often no time to make a mistake in choosing a restaurant.
So, before you go, those with peanut allergies should know to avoid the following nice, but not particularly allergy-friendly, restaurants:
Whitlow’s on Wilson (items fried in peanut oil) – Arlington, VA
Chick Fil-A (peanut oil) – various locations
Five Guys (peanut oil) – various locations
Rockland’s BBQ (shellable peanuts strewn about restaurant) – Arlington, VA and Washington, DC
If you know of other restaurants that fit this unfortunate bill, please add a comment and let others’ know!
