Review


I never take my celiac son to Chick-fil-A because I’m so fearful that he will get sick from cross contamination. I know fast food can get tricky when trying to safely eat gluten free. The kind young lady at the drive thru was helpful and seemed knowledgeable about cooking practices and separate fryers. It made me feel very at ease about giving my son the grilled nuggets and fries. I’d been extremely anxious about it since we were traveling and had no other options for lunch. That was yesterday and I’ve seen no signs of sickness from him. I have no worries that he got anything he shouldn’t have. I’d definitely feel good about going back to this location again.

I have been to chick fil at Paterson (and others) several times since being diagnosed with celiacs. I also have a friend who worked there. When you ask for a gluten free bun or tell them your order needs to be gluten free, they change gloves and it comes with a notification to all the workers that it’s gluten free. They also have a dedicated gluten free fryer for the fries. And the bun comes in an unopened package so it isn’t handled at all, which is nice. I love their spicy chicken grilled sandwich with fries. The lime cilantro sauce that comes with it is gluten free but has eggs if you can’t have those then beware. Chick fil a is one of the only more convenient quick meal places I trust that I have never gotten sick from. Highly recommend. But make sure you tell them tour meal is gluten free!

This CFA is fantastic. Fries are in separate fryer. The gf bun is ok. It’s not my fav of all but it’s better than some. The Cobb salad with cold grilled chicken and avocado lime ranch is my fav—with a side of fries 😂 fries are my weakness sadly and cfa has such good fries! They also are willing to clean shake machine for milkshakes.

I ALWAYS say "I have a severe wheat allergy, I need my meal 'red flagged' gluten free, with gloves changed, please". I used to just ask them to put gf on my order, until one kid said "oh, don't worry. It's all gf anyway", and he never flagged my meal I found out at the window. So now, I make sure they flag it and even if an employee doesn't understand the first thing about Celiac, they always take it serious when I word it this way.

I've never had a reaction or been glutened at any Chik Fila since, and feel VERY safe eating here.

I always confirm they change gloves, clean grill, and use a dedicated fryer for fries. They are always excellent and know their stuff.
