Food Allergy procedures and what to expect
For starters, there is no allergy friendly menu at Finnegan’s.
And there is no dedicated fryer–it is soy oil and there is also gluten! Fish, too. Fryers would be off-limits for most!
There is an allergy bun! It contains egg but is free from other top allergens.
But I spoke with a manager (chefs don’t typically come to the table here) who was quite knowledgeable about options. He says that they don’t like to keep too many dedicated allergy friendly options as is and would rather modify.

What I ate at Finnegan’s that was Top 7 allergy friendly (contains egg!)
The manager checked a few things and I decided on the regular burger with allergy friendly bun! They served it with parboiled potatoes.
As a side item, they served me the allergy friendly “bread.” This was actually just the bun bread they used for the burger, and some apple butter. Both delicious!
Overall, it was a safe and yummy meal! See below for some other options.

Corned Beef and Cabbage (modified) would be top 8 friendly.
