Not to fellow celiac peers: don’t go to Burger King
Last night I got off work and had to head straight to church for our fall festival. I was starving. I stopped by our states dairy restaurant chain to ask for a burger in a lettuce wrap. “We don’t do that Maam.”
Braum’s: “Our lettuce is all shredded.”
So I drove on to check Burger King
Me:”I have Celiac disease and was wondering if you could wrap a burger in lettuce for me.”
Burger King: “No Maam.”
Me: “Why not?”
Burger King: “We only have shredded lettuce.”
By this point I was hungry and furious.
I went to Arby’s next and this time I went indoors.
To my pleasant surprise I found a young man who was what I would consider to be too young to know a thing about celiac and he was the most knowledgeable of everyone. He educated the other employees and they all (all the young kids) stopped production, cleaned off counters and put beef in a box for me. God bless those kids, especially the one who knew what gluten was and was able to help me and educate his coworker’s.
