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!

While the staff says they maintain a dedicated fryer, they are not very understanding of GF. The grilled chicken and nuggets come in plain and are marinaded in a marinade that contains gluten. At most locations the kitchen staff leaves some chicken without the marinade to be used when a customer cannot have gluten. However at this location they decide to marinade it all at once, thus making the chicken unsafe for Celiacs. It frustrates me because I have been to many locations around the country that very easily accommodate this. Whats the point of a gluten free bun if my chicken won’t be gluten free too?

GF bun came sealed in original package which made me feel way more confident about eating here. The chicken (for grilled chicken sandwich) came with lettuce and tomatoes in a soup cup with a lid for a “build your own” sandwich. Yum.
