Allergy Eats Mobile App

The Allergy Eats mobile app is a great tool to find allergy-friendly restaurants when you’re on the go. It is free and available for both iPhone and Android devices.  Just like the website, www.AllergyEats.com, the mobile app allows you to search for restaurants by entering a location, but it also hasfantasticallyfreeallergyeats a “Find Near Me” search option that will automatically find restaurants in your vacinity based on GPS technology.   This comes in handy when you are exploring a new city or aren’t familiar with the area.

It is simple to create an Allergy Eats member profile.  Basically, you just need to enter your contact information and establish a password.  The only “hiccup” I encountered in setting up my membership profile was a couple of broken links to the Allergy Eats Facebook and LinkedIn groups.

Once you have logged in, you can choose your food allergies or intolerances, enter your search, and off you go! After you have entered your search, the site loads restaurants based on the criteria you have entered.  Each restaurant is rated on its ability to accomodate food allergies.  The ratings are based on reviews submitted by other members who have eaten at the restaurants listed.

In addition to the member ratings and contact information for the restaurant, you will also find links to many of the restaurants’ websites and their menus.  Sometimes this information is missing or has an older version of  the menu, so you may have to do an additional search on your search engine of choice or contact the restaurant directly for the latest information and menus, but this is definitely a good place to start your hunt for an allergy-friendly spot to eat.

While this is a great tool to start your search, it is not a guarantee that the restaurants listed will be a good choice for you, so do your own due diligence before eating at any restaurant.  I always recommend reviewing the menu ahead of time and calling to make sure they can accommodate your food allergies.  Once you arrive at the restaurant, you will want to verify again that they can accomodate your food allergies.

In case you’re wondering I am not affiliated with Allergy Eats in any way, but I do think it is a great tool to have in your allergy-friendly tool belt–just remember it is your responsiblity to remain vigilant at any restaurant which you choose to eat.
