I ordered naked tenders and buffalo chips(potatoes I was told) and mentioned I was Celiac and if that was gf. The bartender said yes and put in the order. About a half hour later my food finally comes out and As it turns out the “potatoes” were deep fried which l didn’t realize until after I ate the first one. And NO this was not a designated fryer. Also the chosen cake out on he same plate mixed in with some fries like in a basket style. So the fries(which I didn’t order and were clearly also contaminated) had allot of contact with the 2 of my 4 tenders so I ate the other two(which were boarder line undercooked) and went to google. Turns out even the grilled naked chicken tenders came from a shared grill. The staff should know when someone says CELIAC what is acceptable and what is not. Needless to say I did not finish my meal I remained at the bar to watch the rest of the game with 80% of my food on the plate in front of me for about another hour to finish the game and not one server asked how my meal was when it was obvious that I did not have a positive experience. And needless to say after the clock hit zero I hustled Home to brace for impact as the upset stomach and other symptoms had already begun. Being from buffalo New York growing up on real wings with skin and bones in a clean fryer... this place disappoints me on a big level. Find a local sports bar especially if want something to drink besides angry orchard!

Talked to manager and he said nothing was safe. He was not very knowledgeable about gluten or food allergies.

I called the manager answered and told me if you were gluten free, you cannot eat here, they have no GF menu. Places like this with a straight forward disposition on GF should be avoided. At least they are honest! I would much rather the straight forward no then lie and have us come in and get sick. :)

About the only thing that Buffalo Wild Wings can somewhat guarantee is gluten free is the wings as long as they have the appropriate sauce. They have dedicated fryers for the their wings. The "allergen list" is VERY outdated and the majority of what is listed on their menu as gluten free is not. Fortunately, one of the managers is well rounded about gluten free foods as her best friend has Celiac's. The only time I go in there is when I want wings and nothing else.

This location is one of the only ones that will cater to my son’s celiac needs. You can get bone-in wings and fries/tots. You have to ask them to do the fries and tots in the wing fryer. The only thing they do in this fryer is the traditional wings. You need to be vocal but my son has never gotten sick here. Julia (bar side) is amazing and will go back and talk to the kitchen staff personally to vocalize needs. This is the only BWW we feel safe eating at.

On calling - Traditional wings, boneless breaded wings, as well as fries all share same oil and fryer. Really sad to hear this.

Caution: Waitress was not knowledgable about gluten free menu. I asked if there was a GF menu and she said there wasn't really one (there is online) and that the only things GF are the tortilla chips, wings and fries. She said there is a dedicated fryer but in the end, I got the wrong wings which resulted in me eating gluten. She really didn't seem all that concerned or like she cared.

The only wings that are GF are the TRADITIONAL wings (not even the cauliflower wings). They are in a separate fryer. The fries also have a GF fryer.

Be cautious going here.

There is no dedicated fryer. They will bake the traditional wings to ensure there’s no cross contamination but this takes much longer than frying them so be prepared for the wait.
