They aren't really knowledgeable about what is gluten free. there is cross contamination going on in the kitchen area. I ordered a sandwich on GF bread with GF ingredients and still got sick. if you have celiac disease then this isn't the place for you.
Great gluten free options- soup, salads and spuds! Friendly staff!!!
I've always loved their sandwiches but now that they have gluten free bread I'm loving them even more!
Though some McAlisters do have a gluten free menu they do not. I ordered a baked potato to be on he safe side. It was good but I wouldn't eat much here because you can't be certain.
There is one close to work so this is where I tend to go out if I have to go out for lunch and I did not pack. As long as you stick with the salads it is OK. I had no problems for 6 months and I went about once each month and then last week I got sick after adding the vegetarian chili to my salad... It is supposed to be GF based on their online GF menu. So either it was cooked in a pot that was not cleaned of all gluten or some other type of cross-contamination happened as I stuck to the salad I usually get. Next time I go I will stick to the salads as staff is not well trained on what is on their GF or not.
THEY NOW SERVE GLUTEN FREE BREAD!!!!!
love love love McAlister's gf menu. I try to get a different sandwich every time I go. my favs are the grilled sandwhiches. We eat there once a week. I will say while on vacation we stopped at a McAl out of state no gf menu no gf bread. disappointed. thankfully we live 1 mile away from one that has gf knowledge. Sorry to hear that anyone has had a bad experience there.
My first outing for gf bread request. Happy.
who are you people writing positive reviews for this place? i went into mcallisters 2 weeks back looking for a gluten free lunch and the cashier is unsure whether or not the salads are GF. when she asks her manager, he tells me yes, as they can pick the crutons off in the back. NOPE! NOT GLUTEN-FREE!
One of our favorite places for a simple meal. We particularly like the baked potatoes. The salads are huge and easily made gluten-free. No gluten-free sandwich options, but my non Celiac family has difficulty deciding because there are so many good choices.
They do have a gluten free menu...sort of. It is a printed list of foods that are gluten free. They need to update their list, but at least they have one.
I love the angus baked potato! Yummy. I have eaten it at this location twice with no problems. Recommend.
I've eaten at other McAllister's and they had gluten-free options. I ordered gluten-free sandwich at this one, and they brought me a sandwich, but it looked like a regular sandwich, so I asked if it was gluten-free and they said yes. I didn't trust it so I asked again and they said it was not after checking with the kitchen. They said this McAllister's does not offer gluten-free.
I love this place. They have gluten free bread that is also dairy free, so I am able to get a good sandwich still. Their staff is also bet friendly and helpful when it comes to checking the ingredients and letting you know what's safe.
No one at this restaurant had a clue about being gf or a menu in fact I was told that there was not a gf menu. The manager had the cashier tell me that there wasn't a menu but that the salads and dressing were gf. I was apprehensive but we were very hungry so I ordered a salad with a vinaigrette type dressing. What a mistake! About an hour later I got sick!! This restaurant should make claims they can't keep!! They should be taken off the site.
No GF bread at this location but they have GF soups and salads. All their salad dressings are gluten free too. I highly recommend the chicken chili!
Is there less than one star :-((((awful experience
The listing is misleading. I requested a gluten free menu and was handed a folder with a list of allergens. There are no procedures to avoid cross-contamination. Very few items do not contain gluten. I had a stuffed potato, some of which appear to be gluten-free. It tasted good and I had no reaction to it so I'm giving 3 stars.
I came here because it was on all the lists as having gluten free options. The manager handed me a xeroxed gf menu and then said we really don't have anything you can eat here unless you want to try a potato. We left since she wasn't really interested in our gf business.
