    No stars because the girl that took my order apperently 'understood' gluten free even asked the cook to change his gloves but when she brought my food it was a sandwich and when I said that is not what I ordered or even gluten free, I ordered a salad and she looked at me dumb-founded and said oh I thought you said sandwich, So that was #1. And now two days later I am so sick, #2. Awful experience.

    Although there's not a dedicated gluten-free menu they have GF bread so can make most of the sandwiches gluten-free. I had a grilled turkey and cheddar which was very good. There were numerous sides to select from but I didn't take a chance on that. I'm happy to say no after effects! I'd recommend this place.

    LOVE this place! Can get any sandwich on gluten free bread. And the sweet tea is wonderful My only complaint is that the grilled sandwiches aren't quite grilled long enough. But regardless, I eat here fairly regularly when I need a sandwich fix. UPDATE: There was a point last year that they stopped serving gluten free bread but the manager fought for us and they brought it back!

    No gluten-free menu. When I asked for no bread, they came back to ask what kind of bread I wanted. Had to explain again I can't have bread - so No bread.

    Horrible!!! Do not go here. So sad because I was really excited to have one of my old favorite sandwiches again on gluten free bread. I asked for it not to be toasted. It came out toasted. I very nicely said isn't it toasted on the same thing other bread is toasted. Well yes. I said I can't eat that. So the lady sent it back and said can you put un toasted bread on it. Still it's been cross contaminated but I give up at this point. Got back to my hotel and peel off the bread and there is the bottom to the gluten bread on my sandwich. So do they have these things pre made and just peel it off the gluten bread and slap it on the gluten free bread and call it good??

    I work a few minutes away, and I eat here on a regular basis. A manager told me they get gluten-free bread in 2-slice packs. It's one dollar up charge for 2 pieces of GF bread. (So, it's normally $1 extra, but they have a few sandwiches like their Muffetta that are gargantuan, and they are made on 8 slices of bread, so that's a $4 up charge. I usually get 2-3 meals out of one, so it's a good deal!) Their gluten-free menu lists everything gluten free and what to watch out for. They're happy to make sandwiches with different sauce or without gravy. Once you realize how short the list of possible gluten sources is, it is nice to walk in and have a nearly-full menu to choose from. Unlike many restaurants that have limited menus, most items they sell have no gluten issues other than the bread the sandwiches are served on. Switch bread, and most of the menu is GF. My wife loves their potatoes, both as a side and as a meal, and my son loves their chili. They often have GF soup, and they're always happy to check for you. I have gluten allergies, and my son is Celiac. We often visit McAllister's restaurants while traveling, and we have always had good food, good service, and no cross-contamination issues. And, again unlike many other places, they have cards for freebies, GF or not, after you but a certain number of meals or cups of tea. These are honored at all McAllister's.

    Not sure what type of gluten free bread they use but it is soft and delicious. I even had to double check with the manager to make sure they did in fact use gf bread. Manager assured me she made the sandwich herself! I have eaten there twice and not gotten sick. I recommend it.

    Their gluten free bread is just super yummy!! I get it when I'm with my hubby who has Celiacs because it really does have a good taste and texture. It's very much like "normal" bread. Not the super heavy, dense gritty bread w have had elsewhere. We no go there quite often because this is on of few places we have many choices in sandwiches. THANK YOU McAlisters for being celiac friendly!!

    Now offering gluten free bread but had horrible experience at this location. Was given regular bread and I even ask again when they brought out the food if the plate they handed me was the gluten free bread and it was not. Took a bite and realized it too late. They gave me a large quantity of free meal coupons that I gave away.

    They don't even offer a gluten free menu in our area, so I'm not sure why McAlister's made the list of recommended places. I went into two McAlister's locations near Bartlett and Wolfchase, and neither one had a gluten free menu. Unfortuantely, online this was never specified, so hopefully they will update their website. The only one in the entire city with a gluten free option is near Poplar Plaza, from what I understand. I was very disappointed that the website was so misleading about locations that offer a gluten free menu. I hope they decide to expand their options to more locations soon.

    Placed order, detailed allergy. Cashier told kitchen staff directly about Allergy and requested extra caution and changed gloves. Kitchen staff stared at her with blank stare. 25 minutes later, they brought our food out, all wrong. Manager was not overly concerned about our wait time or the allergy issue.

    Good gluten free options. Sandwiches with gf bread (I usually get the warm sandwiches), soups, potatoes, etc... They don't get crazy with the prices (I think it's like a 35c charge for gf bread) like some places do. Friendly staff and generally really quick service. I highly recommend.

    I'll admit, the first few times I went here and had to sort through the allergy list, the front house staff was not knowledgeable about gluten free and it was tedious. However after familiarizing myself with what my options are, I have no problems. The cooking staff is much more knowledgeable and I have never felt bad after eating here. I simply let the person taking the order know I have a gluten allergy (I know, not accurate, but easiest to communicate for the sake of restaurants) and the kitchen takes care of the rest. It really boils down to me being a well-informed and active celiac when I eat out.
