I love Chick Fil A and have never had an issue ordering grilled nuggets, fries and ice cream in a cup with a Celiac warning. However, this is the **WORST** location ever. Do NOT go here if you are Celiac. We ordered (six-person order in drive-thru due to COVID). They took my allergy order, but when it came out 30 minutes later, it was stuffed in the bottom of the bag with the gluten orders!! Not acceptable!! I have never been to a Chick Fil A that does this. When I asked if they had changed gloves for my order because of my allergy, they looked at me like I was from the moon. The manager came to the window to tell me it would be ok. I told her it would not, and we were not leaving until she fixed my order and used separate gloves. She asked me again if separate gloves were really necessary. They have no clue! I did not get sick, but do not trust that because your ticket says allergy that they did anything differently. I literally had to yell at them to convince them. Plus they were super slow. This location is not Celiac friendly.

Again, no precautions take for me until I got very mean with them. They took the allergy order but stuffed my food at bottom of bag with non-allergy orders.

Just a horrible location, period. Very slow. Rude.

The staff warned against ordering even the grilled chicken and waffle fries because of cross-contamination. They offered me potato chips - LOL! 🤷🏼‍♀

GF Buns, grilled chicken and fries and milk shakes. This is our go to for fast food. The staff is pretty knowledgeable. Just tell them it's for someone with Celiac. They will put an allergy note and ask for a glove change.

The fries are always safe! I frequent this CFA and you should ask for them to change gloves just in case. I’m never confident about their sauces (Polynesian, CFA sauce) but I eat them anyway bc I like them. I do feel slightly off when doing so but I just don’t know.

Grilled chicken and nuggets are safe. Drinks are safe. Ask for their gluten free bun. It always comes in plastic, separate from everything else so it’s 100% safe to eat at least the bun!
