We were stuck at the airport and most of the restaurants were closed. Chick-fil-a employees were very helpful. The waffle fries are done in a separate fryer. My daughter with celiac was able to get grilled chicken, fries, and a fruit cup. They even put lettuce around the chicken like a lettuce wrap. The waffle fries are excellent.

I got grilled chicken sandwich with no bun and french fries and a large diet Pepsi with ranch and catch up and honey mustard and buffalo sauce. The food was delicious =)

They do not have the full menu offering at this chick fil a - no gluten free buns, milkshakes, or kids meals. We were disappointed since typically chick fil a does a nice job for our family.

Recently went gluten-free because gluten was causing me a lot of fatigue and joint pain. I was really devastated, but then saw Chick-fil-A has gluten-free buns. No place around here has this choice, and it really made me happy to find this instead of just the normal salad every place has. I often will have a cup of fruit, a side of fries, and a grilled chicken sandwich with the gluten-free bun. It is a nice treat to myself now and then!

I personally order through a delivery app, but I haven't encountered any cross-contamination personally. I am sure in person they would take even more consideration and acknowledgement into the risk if you asked them to, but personally, without being able to mention my reaction to gluten, I still have not had any issues.

Overall, I found the pricing to be a bit high, but it's worth it for a treat now as their food is good and, considering their limited selection as is, I would say they have a semi selection of stuff to enjoy, at least majorly in comparison to some other local places. Their grilled chicken, with a gluten-free bun or without, actually tastes really delicious, so I would recommend it!

Ordered the “grilled” chicken and was given breaded chicken in a container labeled gluten free. Went back to the store and they didn’t even apologize for the error. Had to ask for a replacement and they acted like they were doing us a favor. Terrible customer service. Be very careful if you go there.

The fries are done in a dedicated frier. I usually order the grilled nuggets with fries and have never gotten sick from this location.
