We ordered a grilled nugget meal with waffle fries for my daughter, let them know it was “red flag gluten allergy”. When they gave us the meal her grilled nuggets had “special” on it. I asked at the window if it was for sure “red flagged” they said yes on the screen it was. Her fry ended up in my bag.. she started feeling sick 45 mins later. When I called all they said well it said “red flag” it should have been fine. 3 days later my daughter is still so sick.

Staff member (Jane) very knowledgeable about GF and instructed kitchen to put on fresh gloves without me asking, after she found out I am celiac. Quite a few items GF and the GF bun came sealed In its own bag, with the grilled chicken in a separate container. The fries were also said to be GF. I was able to eat the whole meal and feel good after.

One of the few fast food places we feel safe eating at. They mark your order for gluten-free and they will change gloves when preparing. Dedicated frier. And they bag food separately if there are items that are not gluten-free.

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?
