This store is phenomenal! I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun via their app. Moments later, I received a phone call from the manager who wanted to verify that the meal was for an allergy so they could cook the chicken properly and avoid cross contamination. I was blown away by their service and dedication!!

I've always loved this place and now that I'm gf, I love it even more. They have gf buns that are individually wrapped to stop cross contamination and they cook their yummy fries in seperate oil than their chicken nuggets and prepare everything on seperate clean surfaces. They are very accommodating to food allergies. The only change I would make would be to heat up the buns just a touch so they weren't so crumbly but I can live with it. I feel perfectly safe eating here

Great food! I've never had a problem here, and we eat here quite often. They have also just added a gluten free bun for sandwiches! Tell them you have a food allergy, and they are very careful when preparing your food.

I went here yesterday. They were very helpful and even informed me about the new marinade recipe (which isn't GF) So they red flagged my order and prepared a clean surface and cooked my chicken without marinade! It took I little longer than normal, but it is very much worth the wait!

love the place. Burger bun was served in plastic bag, Chicken club in a separate container, so I could assemble the sandwich. Cross contamination can be minimized that way.

I heard that they are celiac-friendly and wanted a quick bite on the go. This was the first time I'd gone since my diagnosis, so I went in because I was nervous about making sure it was safe for me to have it. The person who took my order had limited knowledge, maybe a recent hire. I was glad it was not very busy, and the manager took the opportunity to explain to both of us the process. Not only they have a few gf items marked on the menu, but if you tell them you have an allergy, they make sure to alert the staff, so they clean the area, utensils and change gloves before preparing the meal. They have a separate fryer for the fries, too.

They have a separate fryer at this location for their French fries, so they are celiac-safe! Tons of great GF options for fast food. When I mentioned celiac to the person taking my order she offered to relay the message and have them change gloves! Overall was treated with kindness about my allergy (which is rare in fast food) and happy to return

5-6-24 found out the grilled chicken as YEAST EXTRACT FOR THISE THAT ARE SENSITIVE TO IT!!!!

Fries and tots are designated friers…

Went to grab dinner. Ordered one meal then said, “now this order is GLUTEN FREE DUE TO ALLERGIES” gave her my order and when I pulled to window they told me, “we wiped the counter and changed gloves before prepping your gluten free meal!” Even though they’re always busy- it’s worth the wait knowing they take it seriously!
