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.

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.

I’m a regular as it is the only fast food that’s been safe for me. They have a way in the system to mark gluten allergy - some even ask if I want my food in a separate bag from my husbands (not gf). It’s now a strategy we’ve adopted.

While Chick-Fil-A is still one of our fav places, we have to give a downgraded review for them lately when it comes to Celiac care. While they came out of the gate strong, we have seen them struggle in the past 6 months. Several times now on sandwich orders, we have gotten regular buns when requesting GFree; and even when requesting No Bun. This week, we repeatedly said that we had Celiac, and a “serious medical gluten allergy” to our counter person. She assured us she would mark the order such, and that the kitchen was real careful about that. This “no bun please” order came out with a regular bun. The table server asked if he could just remove the bun. This is when we learned the order was Not marked. Stating again our restriction, it was taken back. He returned later, apologizing that it had been made wrong again. It finally came out appearing correct. However a short time after finishing our meal, we had a reaction.

Chick has the knowledge, the facilities, and the intent to care for its G-Free customers. But lately some issue with communication or training is short circuiting their execution. We hope we can update this review later in the positive.

Their fries are cooked separately and contain no gluten! And a lot of the salads are safe as long as you get the fillet!
