Chuck E. Cheese adds Gluten-Free Menu Choices

Now children on special diets can enjoy new items during a trip to the overly stimulating kiddie casino called Chuck E. Cheese’s. In addition to the rides, climbing tunnels and arcade games there is now an individual sized gluten-free cheese pizza and a gluten-free chocolate cupcake on the menu at over 500 locations in the United States and Canada.

Here are some of the key FAQ about the new Chuck E. Cheese Gluten-Free Menu:

How many Chuck E. Cheese’s locations offer a gluten-free menu?

The gluten-free menu is available at more than 500 Chuck E. Cheese’s locations beginning Nov. 13.

How can I find out if my local Chuck E. Cheese’s offers the gluten-free menu?

Guests can inquire about their local restaurant’s gluten-free menu by contacting guest relations at 1-888-778-7193.

How much will the gluten-free menu items cost?

Chuck E. Cheese’s personal-size gluten-free pizza costs $5.99 at most locations in the U.S. The chocolate cupcake costs $2.99 in the U.S. or C$3.49 in Canada. Prices may vary slightly at some locations.

What makes Chuck E. Cheese’s gluten-free pizza different from other chains offering gluten-free pizza?

Chuck E. Cheese’s utilizes an innovative and unique process from kitchen to table that reduces the gluten-free pizza’s chances of encountering any sort of particle that might cross-contaminate the product and make it unsafe for a guest with strict gluten intolerance. Additionally, Chuck E. Cheese’s gluten-free cheese pizza is sold for the same price as its personal-size pizza with traditional crust.

How does the gluten-free pizza get from the kitchen to the guest’s table?

The gluten-free pizza arrives at Chuck E. Cheese’s locations from Conte’s Pasta’s dedicated, certified gluten-free facilities in frozen, pre-sealed packaging. The bake-in-bag pizza remains sealed while cooked and delivered, until it is opened and served with a personal pizza cutter at families’ tables by the adult in charge.

Under the same procedure, gluten-free chocolate fudge cupcakes from Fabe’s All Natural Bakery will remain in pre-sealed, single-serve packaging through preparation until opened and served at the table.

Chuck E Cheese - fun

Are Chuck E. Cheese’s gluten-free menu options appropriate for children and adults with celiac disease?

  1. I’m glad they’re taking the measures to accommodate as many children as possible but I’m so claustrophobic that place makes me want to set myself on fire.
