Multiple staff lied to me multiple times about the fries being gluten free. They have a shared fryer and it’s highly cross contaminated. I asked so many times if they were gluten free!

Staff not educated on cross contamination or just liars

I was able to get a burger with a bun as well as fries which made me super excited. My waitress claimed that they had a gluten free frier as well

Very inconsistent with what is and not gluten free. Told something different every time. Even the managers have no idea what’s going on.

Do not go here. I was reassured that everything was gluten free. After having a full body gluten attack from eating the godiva chocolate cheesecake. I looked up the ingredients online and they dust a cocoa powder on top that us made from a wheat mixture.

We have eaten here numerous times We have been told the fryer is dedicated to fries only Waitress just told us fries are gluten free but the chicken nuggets are fried in it Manager came over to say they are fried next to each other and the bc the baskets are so close especially in a busy nite there could be cross contamination. He also said same thing for the chips and guac. Come on People get this right Its either gluten free or its not. 😡😡😡

I had a mai tai and Hawaiian fish burger with a gluten free bun. For a chain restaurant, it was good and I was glad they had customized the menu for the location. The server was knowledgeable and helped me out with safe food choices.

I’d give 0 stars if I could. They couldn’t even guarantee a bowl of strawberries would be safe. Ended up getting soda and tea the whole meal and eating snacks I packed in case

I've gone to this Cheesecake Factory location a few times and always order the same GF pasta. They have several GF pasta options and GF buns for burgers available upon request. Every time I order the GF pasta they seem knowledgeable. When the food comes out, they always say "GF pasta" before setting the plate down. I can tell it's GF pasta since the original dish comes with penne and the GF pasta is fusili. I've never gotten sick after being here. Would recommend!

I ordered their only GF salad & GF cheesecake. I’m uncertain which made me sick. But I’m sooooo sick. I don’t know if it is full blown gluten yet or just cross-contamination….but it feels like I ate gluten.
