In restaurants, dozens of ingredients go into making one dish, making it impossible for people with multiple food sensitivity to eat out.  It can also be embarrassing and uncomfortable to list of your allergy, which is your own personal and private medical information to a stranger while the rest of the restaurant eavesdrop. How awkward would that be on your first date?  On top of that, can you REALLY be sure that the server won't make a mistake?

Thanks to Jean, she has discovered that Burgoo offers a book of ingredients for each dish for people with allergy to browse and check. They have something for you even if you are allergic to eggs, dairy, soy, cane sugar, mushroom, and more, and it's still delicious.

 I used to hate Burgoo, and, yes, hate is a strong word.  They used to put celery (which I find repulsive) in every single dish, large chucks of it.   That was three years ago.  They have undergone big menu changes and the food are delicious.  I love their lunch specials which are really good deals.  Is it the best food I have ever had? No. The best deal? No.  It's pretty good and, most importantly, it's allergy friendly.

If you have food sensitivities, I definitely recommend this place out.  It may save your social life.
