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.

We went here at peak busy time. Both of the managers were incredibly helpful!! One of them (a man named MJ) made sure that the employees washed and changed their gloves. He also insured my food was put in a separate bag so there was no cross contamination. The other manager (I forgot his name unfortunately) came over to make sure my food was flagged correctly. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!! This is the first time I’ve ate at a restaurant and felt 100% safe about my food.

I've tried eating here with a variety of different gluten-free meal combinations, but every time I get cross-contaminated. Maybe this place can work for those with low sensitivity to gluten, but it has never been safe for me.
