Any good restaurants (probably non-chain) in Cary that actually cook all the food at the restaurant? So many places don't know the ingredients and I have allergies so I rarely eat out. They need to be able to tell me exactly what is in the food...not just a list of the five major allergens, none of which I am allergic to.

Doesn't have to be fancy. Just good food.

Ugh...I hate that too. We really like Maximillian's and I'm pretty sure they cook all the food there .

Another vote for Maximillians...awesome place.

La Farm is good but the service sucks and they have been getting WAY too snobby as of late given how much business has increased.

Klara's in downtown Cary is awesome.

Tangerine is great for thai/vietnamese/korean.

Martin's Curry Rice at the intersection of HWY 54 and Cary Parkway (in the Food Lion Complex next to Radioshack). You pick the ingredients and they will customize it for you. I have never tried it but I know they customize based on your choices

Maximillians was the first thing to come to my mind too, glad to hear it is still great (it's been a long time for me)

For your particular question, I'd also recommend Irregardless. It's actually in DT Raleigh, but I think they would fit the bill perfectly.

Also, likely to find many cool places like deli/lunch spots that meet your needs in Ch Hill or DT Durham. Typically look for the hippie kind of places, typically found near colleges. You still need to ask, but if they have a strong vegetarian, vegan or organic presence on their menu, they are at least likely to understand your need, and give an intellegent and accurate response as to wether they can oblige or not....

That looks like my kind of place!

Thanks for all the great suggestions. There are several places that I'm going to try. :-)
