Good for Applebee’s for updating the menu—what’s more, it shows the chain is moving forward with transparency and accessibility for all of its customers.

Now, diners with food allergies can not only find out what they can and cannot eat at their local Applebee’s before they go, but they’ll also be able to see which ingredients are in which foods.

Please note that even though most restaurants including Applebee’s strives to keep their allergen menu updated, ingredient changes and substitutions may occur at any time.

Therefore, I will advise you double check on food nutrition information before ordering to avoid settling for a meal that could harm you.

I hope you found this guide helpful. You should also see Chili’s allergen menu and what Arby’s has for you on its allergen menu as well.
