Great at gluten free if you dine in. However every time I order it to go (over the phone or online) and say it’s an allergy, they always mess up the order and include bread or something g else with wheat. I’ve never had any issues dining in but they can’t seem to get it figured out when ordering it to go.

Never gotten sick from here before. I don’t mind the fact that we can only get bone-in wings! It would be cool if they made some gluten free boneless wings though!!

I was worried about Buffalo Wild Wings because their website said that fryers were shared between gluten and non-gluten containing products, but my grandson wanted to go. We went to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Ankeny. Iowa. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They produced an allergy book and helped me select the chicken nachos. The waitress promised to warn the kitchen not to cross contaminate. They were HUGE and totally delicious!! I'd definitely come here again!

I loved BBWW before I went gluten free. Of course my choices are now limited, I still enjoy eating here. I usually order their naked chicken tenders, without the seasoning, and their fries. They have multiple, great sauces you can still use. To date I have never had a problem. The waitresses are always super attentive to marking down no seasoning. I usually go during lunch or during a less busy period just to cut down on any chances of catastrophe to my gut.

Most Buffalo Wild Wings have a separate fryer for fries and traditional wings, which are gluten free. I called and spoke with the manager to make sure, since two of us have celiac. He told me that this location puts all appetizers, including breaded ones, in the same fryer and that the usually safe traditional wings are in the same fryer as other breaded products. Bottom line, if you are celiac or particularly sensitive, do NOT go to this location!

I was excited to bring my son here, he has celiac disease. They said they had a dedicated fryer and that they could make the traditional wings and French fries gluten free. He used mild sauce which was listed as gluten free. Unfortunately something must’ve had gluten as he got sick as soon as he got home.

Ordered carry out from Bowling Green location while traveling for soccer tourney. Placed carry out order explaining allergy. Reiterated allergy concerns in person. Waited a full hour to be provided the incorrect order and allergy was never noted on the receipt. Did not know I was provided the wrong order until back at hotel. The order was not gluten free and manager didn’t understand the severity of allergic reactions. Side note. Watched same manager yell at children for playing video games. Very unprofessional. The employees seemed miserable.

All their wings have gluten on them before they had the sauce. Plus no dedicated fryer.

Staff did not know what was gluten free, handed me a huge allergy guide book which was great, but there was little options. I played it safe and just had sweet potato fries which were said to be GF, thats the worst ive ever been cross contaminated. Never going there again!!
