Not sure about gluten-free and it's been a few years but...

There's a whole bunch of restaurants on the main road (332/Mcgalliard)...Applebee's etc.

There's also college bars on University in "the village" right off Ball State campus. It will likely be less rowdy over the summer. From what I recall, BW3 and Scotty's Brewhouse would be less of a university crowd then some of the other bars (Dill Street, The Chug).

Hi wildcat40, most popular resturants are located on McGalliard Rd./Highway332. Scotty's brewhouse is a nice place to drink and eat also. It is located at 1700 W. University Ave. I have ate there a few times and was good. It is one of the nicest resurants in University Village. Enjoy your visit.

Hi WildCat40,

1. ) Ummm, I am a little embarrassed to suggest this (and I realize you are from New Zealand not Australia) but The Outback Steak House offers a gluten-free menu - just ask before being seated or ask the waitress. All items on the gluten-free menu will have a GF next to it. The Outback is our try at an Australian themed restaurant, but the food is good. If you are interested they have their gluten-free menu posted online:


2.) Cheese Burger in Paradise gluten- free menu:


and their website: www.cheeseburgerinparadise.com

3.) Someone recommended Applebees. While that serves good food, I have never found gluten-free foods there, so I will not eat there. You can go to: www.applebees.com and see their menu if you wish.

4.) For fastfood Subway and Wendys both have gluten-free options.

You could have a salad at Subway. Many of their sliced lunch meats are gluten free. Put a bunch of veggies and cheese on the salad. Subway: www.subway.com

Here is Subway's list which includes their items with/without gluten:


5.) Wendys baked potato with sour cream and chives is gluten free, their frostys (YUM!), and many of their salads are gluten-free. Their mandarin chicken salad is really good and gluten-free. ***Do check their salad dressings, some are fine, some NOT. The dressing that comes with the mandarin chicken salad is NOT gluten-free, you will have to look at the back of the packets and find one you like without gluten. I use the lite honey mustard. They say their chilli is gluten-free, but many claim they have had reactions to it, so many here stay away. Here is a list of gluten free menu items:


Also, I know that many Meijer grocery stores (not familiar with the Muncie one) just started carrying gluten-free foods. They group them together and they carry GF cereals, crackers, flour, cookies, ect. You can also find some grouped in the frozen section - breads, pizza, ect. Ask someone if you can't find them.

I hope that gets you started.

Take care,


Muncie, IN

A good place to go in Muncie for the 30-50 crowd is a bar named "Timbers Lounge" on the corner of Tillotson ave and Kilgore ( which is state road 32). It is a nice place, mature clientele for the most part. They have a good kitchen, I don't know about gluten free but they have steak and potatoes, salads,...good food, and I presume some gluten free options. Also a pub down town named "Heorot" on Walnut st., or Margaritas at La Hacienda (on Madison st.) or Puerta Vallarta ( on Wheeling or Tillotson) are popular with the age group.

I would recommend MCL Restaurant and Bakery. It's located at the mall. It's filled with healthy options.

I think there's a restaurant called Thai Smile in Muncie. It's right near the stadium, phone # 765-289-8989 I've been to their sister place in Fishers & although I found the food mild (we call it Thai Mild at our house), they may have gluten free options. Have fun.
