The manager was very confused about what the definition of gluten free is. They were very busy so she totally blew me off, like if being gluten free was from another planet, I will never eat in this Springfield location again, Very disappointed. If I could give it 0 stars I would!

They have a dedicated fryer and if you tell them of the allergy or celiac, they guarantee glove changes and cleaned work space to support the order. They have glueten free buns as well. The staff is always helpful and if they dont know an answer or understand the allergy they get someone who does. Now that i know i xan have fries again they have gotten to know me and tag my order.

I've eaten here several times with no issue. They have limited GF options, but the food is easy and very convenient. The grilled chicken is gluten free, and the waffle fries are fried in canola oil separate from the fried chicken. Their website has a full allergen list.

This is my go-to fast food place. They have a dedicated frier for their fries. I get the grilled chicken sandwich with a gluten free, pre-packaged bun. If you ask they will change gloves for your order as well.

I had the grilled nuggets, fries, and lemonade and did not have any symptoms afterwards. I told them I had an allergy to gluten and asked them to change their gloves and they made sure the people preparing the food got the message. It was my first time having the grilled nuggets and they were amazing!! I dipped them in chick fil a sauce 🤗

Always get the waffle fries and chocolate shake! Almost all sauces are GF and they have gluten free buns but there is still risk of cross contamination. I’m not a very sensitive celiac and have always been fine after eating here.

They do well with gluten allergies, I have dairy allergies too. You can tell them you allergies and they put in allergy alert. Just ask them to switch gloves and use caution with your order. Always look at there updated list to stay on top of your allergies.

The manager and staff all were very patient and helpful with checking ingredients for me, and preparing a safe gluten free meal. I had the southwest salad, with the avocado dressing and a side of fries. They have a designated fryer for the fries!

Ordered grilled chicken nuggets and french fries. BBQ sauce is gluten free. Allows you to mark your order as celiac to let kitchen staff know!

Very good customer service, I explained to them the importance of Ensuring proper care of their gluten free French fries. She went back and spoke to the kitchen personally to make sure they understood the fries needed to be from a fresh batch and with new gloves and the 1st serving. They had a basic understanding of gluten free and were really great about asking questions to make sure that my food specifically was safe. Updated after an hour.....I felt mildly glutened. Moral of this story, good for gluten sensitivity not if your celiac.

I had the waffle fries and the chicken sandwich the bun was really good. The person taking my order was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and celiac. Update 11/23/19: We go here about twice a month and the people are great and always reassure us that our food will be gluten free.

Eat here frequently and they are great. Never gotten sick. I’ve forgotten to order a gluten free bun before and went up to the counter and they remade it correctly free of charge.

I actually work at this location so I know a lot about their procedures. They have a dedicated fryer and gluten free buns. I would not recommend ordering milkshakes as the spinner is not thoroughly cleaned after the Cookies and cream shake. Overall several of the back and front of house staff (myself included) are knowledgeable on Gluten free procedures.

This location does not have GF fries. So we ordered the grilled chicken and they brought us three orders of fries. Nice way to stick it to my 7 & 9 year old.

Cashier wasn’t up to speed. The manager had to step in. Both very friendly. Limited options but delish. The bun tasted overly sweet with poor texture. Shake Shack has a fantastic gf bun.

Gluten free bun comes in its own packaging. The grilled nuggets are good, and I love that their sauces are all naturally gluten free (aside from the soy), as are their fries!

The manager and cashier seemed knowledgeable, noting in the order to change gloves, and explained how fries were cooked separate from other things. When not sure about other items, the cashier either looked them up or printed a ingredients list for us to look at. The only options for the entree was the grilled chicken nuggets. They didn't offer a gf bun.

Most restaurants in this chain are very good, but this location was terrible. First off the person taking the order, had no clue about gluten free, even though it was on the menu board. My wife and I both ordered gluten free #5’s which is a grilled chicken filet, which comes with a separate gf bun normally, and fries and a drink. Because this was our first time at this location, We asked if the fries were done in a separate fryer. The cashier did not know the answer, but checked with someone and assured us that their fries were cooked in a designated fryer. After we got that cleared up, we took our seats, and waited for the food. The delivery person brought the food and it wasn’t even gluten free, it was the normal meal. He apologized and went back to the kitchen. A few minutes later, the same girl that took our order, brought out the gf meals. I said to her, after all the talk about making sure you did not cross contaminate food here, you didn’t even mark the order gf. She said oh, I’m sorry. I should have talked to the manager, but I was in a hurry to make an appointment, so I did nothing. We will not be going back.

Unknowledgeable staff. Asked if the fries were gluten free and cooked in separate fryer. Could not answer and went to ask someone else. Told her had serious allergy. Claimed they were fine. Ordered gluten free grilled chicken breast and fries. Received chicken breast on regular roll. Told delivery person this was wrong. They brought correct order, but not convinced that they didn’t just take chicken off gluten roll and put in container and brought back with gluten free roll. Won’t trust them again!

They have GF grilled nuggets, chicken breasts, & buns. Be sure to specify it's an allergy &/or research the sauces & cheeses beforehand as not all of them are GF.

Took 3 bites of my grilled nugs and waffle fries and felt the gluten pains. Spent the 4 hour drive home trying not to be sick on the side of the highway. Not sure what happened here I’ve never been let down by CFA before :(

The CFA at this airport does not have grilled nuggets, which my celiac traveling companion was counting on. Additionally, the staff was rude and less than helpful so we do not have a lot of confidence in the safety of the fries that she ordered (the only thing she could).

Points for trying, but that gluten free bun is one of the worst I've tried. Gritty, overly sweet. The texture kills it for me. Also angry their spicy chicken biscuit isn't universal anymore 😎 (no their biscuits aren't gluten free, nor their fried chicken strips... Just fantasizing about a day when I could live normally again).

This location does a great job - like almost every other Chick-fil-A location! Grilled nuggets, waffle fries, or a Cobb salad are some of my favorite standbys.
