Great service and great food. Can get the French fries because they don't fry anything with gluten in their fryers (only hash browns in the morning which are also gluten free) as the breaded chicken is pressure fried separately, which sadly we can't have. I usually get grilled chicken nuggets or the chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun. I usually go for the nuggets, but the sandwich is quite good if you are taking it home and can toast the bun. Service is always great and everyone is very friendly.

That were very nice about my CC worries. And the gluten free buns come packaged. They put the rest of your sandwich in a little box and let you make it yourself, which makes it easier to avoid CC. However after eating the fries I did feel a little off. But even then, small price to pay.

The staff is always very accommodating with the gluten free options. The gluten free buns are pretty good as well as the market salad and grilled nuggets. They also use a different fryer for their fries so no cross contamination.

They have GF buns and the fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer. Used a NIMA tester and got a smile on fries and grilled nuggets.

Not safe the staff told me that there chicken sandwhich and fries were gluten freee bc they use a seperfryer when i went back up after eating to order a milkshake to ask of it was gluten free the manger stated their policy that nothing is gluten free and i told her that her staff told me it was amd i ate it she was rude did not understand my panic, because i had already consumed it. I called corporate they were honest with me and said the there was a 50% chance i was glutened do to cross contamination….. i was waiting to get sick good news i didnt get sick, but i wouldnt eat here out of fear bc the staff are not educated and the manger does not care, also corporate never reached back out to me

Amazing! We came at 12:30, totally slammed inside and out. They handled my food safely, put it on a separate tray from my group as requested, and had the food out in minutes. They have grilled chicken sandwiches with a yummy gf bun that comes sealed in a favtoey seal and the meat placed in its own container so you put it together. They also have grilled nuggets that I had heard are good. The waffle fries are all in a separate fryer too. So yummy!
