Best Gluten-Free Restaurant Chains of 2012
About.com Gluten-Free Readers' Choice Awards-Best Gluten-Free Restaurant Chain

You can't deny that dining out gluten-free can be challenging — you need to watch out for gluten cross-contamination just when you're trying to relax and enjoy yourself.

That's what makes the growing number of restaurants with gluten-free menus such a boon for those of us following the gluten-free diet — when a restaurant has a gluten-free menu, staff members usually have been trained on how to avoid cross-contamination and serve safe meals. At the very least, everyone working at the restaurant should know what gluten is and the basics of how to avoid it.

This was a very competitive category in the 2012 About.com Gluten-Free Readers' Choice Awards, and it yielded six excellent finalists. Most are probably familiar to readers, but a couple may surprise you.

Ultimately, readers chose Ted's Montana Grill as the gluten-free restaurant chain they preferred. Read on to see why, and to learn the runners-up in the contest.
