Anyone who has to deal with food allergies, whether in themselves or their children, probably knows how tough it is to eat out in a restaurant. Leaving food preparation up to a stranger, especially for those dealing with severe allergies, can be both stressful and frightening.

But it doesn't have to be!

AllergyEats.com, the leading guide to allergy-friendly restaurants, recently released the 2014 list of the Most Allergy-Friendly Restaurant Chains nationwide.

AllergyEats lists more than 650,000 restaurants across the United States, which people can rate. The website also offers web links, menus and other resources for those dealing with food allergies.

AllergyEats.com used feedback from the food allergy community and then ranked the restaurants based only on how well they were able to accommodate diners with food allergies.

This list, unlike most "Best of" lists, does not take into account a restaurant's price range, service quality, food taste or overall ambiance. The feedback collected to compile this list was taken from the AllergyEats website as well as the AllergyEats smartphone app.

In a press release regarding the publication of this list, Paul Antico, founder and CEO of AllergyEats, is also the father of three food-allergic children and is a passionate food allergy advocate. He applauded the concerted efforts made by these restaurant chains to be accommodating for everyone.

Antico said, "these restaurants have demonstrated a superior willingness and ability to accommodate guests with food allergies."

Those dealing with food allergies understand the need to research any restaurants in advance. Looking up a restaurant's menu, ingredient list and any allergy statements can be a good first step. Getting real-life feedback from other allergy sufferers, like that found at AllergyEats.com, can also be extremely helpful.

Check out the 2014 list of the Most Allergy-Friendly Chain Restaurants below.

I do not know why people are so concerned about restaurants. I have met people who are allergic to air.

People can be allergic to anything and everything. I do not think that it should be the restaurant's responsibility.

The CEO is a father of three food-allergy children? I would suggest that he research a genetic cause and treatment of this.
