Disappointing experience. I eat at many different Chick-fil-a’s in several states. This was the most frustrating experience ever. I ordered inside “to-go” for myself and husband. Got in the car and realized the sauce was not what I ordered so went back and exchanged it. Headed north on the interstate and then began eating my fries first. Then asked my husband to give me the grilled nuggets. He pulls a box out of the bag—I knew the grilled nuggets come in a round container. I was given crispy gluten-loaded nuggets. I was stuck in the car for 8 hours and that was my supper. It’s a good reminder to alway check and see if you get what you ordered because when you’re 15 miles up the road, you don’t want to turn around.

The pain in my stomach after eating says it is definitely not gluten free. Bad food and bad company overall.

This a great establishment for non celiac patients but this is NOT a place for people with celiac. Their fryers and surfaces are cross contaminated even though they're gluten free. I thankfully had a fruit cup option but thay was the only gluten free item.

The only thing you can be sure is gluten free are their buns. You have to look everything else up on a separate site because their app doesn't tell you and it's pretty vague and confusing. This lead me to getting the spicy GRILLED chicken sandwich thinking it was gf like the regular and I was glutened. I went back and checked later to realize it's not on their "probably doesn't contain gluten but who actually knows" list. It is a plus that they fry their fries separately, though, and they are generally safe.

I've gotten both their Gluten Free Chicken Sandwich and the Grilled Chicken Nuggets (which are Gluten Free by themselves). They give you a seperately packaged Amaranth bun and you combine everything yourself. Its nice. The grilled chicken nuggets are a bit weird in flavor, but you get used to it after a while. A good source of protien. The French fries are always gluten free and cooked in their own fryers. Overall pretty safe and the cooks take it seriously. Never gotten sick from them.
