I’ve eaten here multiple times over the last few years. I have celiac and I’ve never gotten sick. They have gluten free buns that they give you that are unopened. The sandwich usually comes in a take out box, and you assemble it with the bun by yourself so their is no cross contamination. Waffle Fries are gluten free, and cooked in a separate fryer from anything else they may offer. Request a gluten free bun and tell them you have an allergy. They’ve never messed up my order.

I used to go to chick til a before I was diagnosed and their chicken is the best! It is a little pricy for the amount they give, but the nuggets are so worth it. When I became celiac I was eager to try there gluten free options, but all they had was grilled chicken, that for some reason is spicy. It’s not bad-my sister loves it, but me personally don’t love their food anymore, I just get fries when we go which doesn’t fill me up unfortunately, but still good. :)

I am not a chicken eater, so I've only ever had the delicious, delicious waffle fries. We always ask for them in a separate bag and it's hit or miss whether we they do it or not. But the fries are delicious and it's so hard to find GF fries. I've never gotten sick here. The very, very, very, very best part about this location is that it is right next to a Wendy's, so you can get GF fries at Chick-Fil-A and then go right to Wendy's and get a Frosty. Frosty and Fries, Celiac style!!! I was so happy when I figured this out because I truly missed Frosty and fries. Such a nice treat! I vote yes for Celiac friendly because you can actually get fries! I believe there are some GF grilled chicken options, as well.

Love chick-fil-a! They note all gf options on the online menu, gf bun comes in a sealed package. Grilled options are gf as well as some sides, and I'm so glad I can always eat their waffle fries! Always feel safe eating here whenever I'm in Farmington.

I go to chick fil a all the time and have never had a bad experience! I have ordered the market salad with grilled chicken and avocado ranch dressing, the grilled nuggets meal with fries, the grilled chicken sandwich with a bun that comes in a package so no cross contamination. All of these are great choices that I have never had issues with. All the sauces are gf as well as ice cream and milkshakes (besides the ones with cookies in it). I have also tried breakfast sandwiches but I sub the biscuit for the gf bun and it tastes great!

I ate at this location 4 weeks in a row (once a week). I was never sick. I only ordered the grilled chicken sandwich & fries. The 1st three times, I was lucky enough to get the same cashier who remembered me. During my initial visit, she verified with her superior about gluten free items and got the manager booklet which had a list of all available gluten free items (which was good to know). After placing my order, she went to the kitchen line to tell them about my GF order. Upon receiving the order, my food was in the same bag as my family's, which I didn't feel very comfortable about---but, again, I did not get ill. At following visits, I ordered completely separately from my family, and it worked well.

During my 4th visit, I had a different cashier (name tag said Team Leader). First thing, I said that I require GF, which she nodded and continued with my order, saying she was entering to change gloves. She, too, went to the kitchen line regarding my order, but I did not hear what she said. While my family was ordering, I looked at my receipt, which did not mention GF or any allergy. When I mentioned it, she only said that she forgot to charge me for the GF bun (which was almost $2!!!). When I received my food, I could tell it wasn't GF. The sandwich was in a regular box---so, basically, they changed gloves to prepare my food but prepared it exactly the same as any other sandwich (the GF bun was not included). I mentioned to the person that it was suppose to be GF, and she happily re-did my order (the cashier heard me and mentioned that she forgot to include that). I was a bit nervous about eating my food (wondering if they just removed the bread), but I am guessing they didn't as I did not get ill.

I would return to this location but verify before completing my order that GF was added to my order. I wish ordering GF was simpler!
