Gluten-Free Cheesecake Factory Menu Items 2012

I heard back from Cheesecake Factory today. It actually seems like they have quite a few options for us. I have no idea whether they’re really safe or not (I would bet cross-contamination runs pretty rampant in that kitchen). But I thought I’d share the list in case you wanted to give Cheesecake Factory a try. And if you do, let me know how it goes!! And I’ll post back after I go on Thursday for the birthday celebration. :)


Thank you very much for contacting us regarding gluten free items on our menu. Currently we do offer a number of dishes that are gluten free or that can be modified to be gluten free upon request. We do not presently publish a list, but are working towards doing so in the near future. Additionally, we are in the process of determining which of the newly added items are gluten free, and should have that information very soon.  In the meantime, for your convenience I have provided some gluten-free suggestions below. Due to our frequent recipe changes however, we highly recommend that you check with a manager before ordering. Because sensitivities vary, please note that we do not have separate cooking facilities, and we cannot guarantee against cross contamination of ingredients. Our managers receive extensive training on the ingredients of every dish and are happy to answer any questions or take additional precautions with the preparation of a guest’s meal, so please speak with a manager to ensure that your dietary requirements are met.

    Hi, just wanted to let everyone know that their tacos are served on CORN tortillas which is really nice! If you order from the “Skinnylicious” menu then the chicken/beef/shrimp is grilled so there are no traces of any sort of gluten. I went for lunch today and was pleased to discover this! I had the chicken and it was absolutely delicious, the menu calls it “spicy chicken” but you can ask for the spicy sauce on the side if you are ordering it for kids.

    We’ve eaten here with good results several times. My daughter sticks with one of the burgers (without the bread of course) and orders broccoli or asparagus as a side instead of french fries.

    I see on the list above that they mention sweet potato fries, but unless these are baked instead of fried you are risking cross contamination — they do not have dedicated fryers.

      Be careful about the broccoli. I ordered it for my son and I found a noodle with it. They drop in the same pasta water and use the same colander for pasta.

      On their website the broccoli has gluten unless you specify NO GLUTEN – :(
