Several of the chicken salads are GF and you can get it by the scoop. Just be sure they are aware of the need to avoid CC.

Roadtripping can be hard in terms of finding a safe place to eat. My son grabbed a pre-packaged chicken salad from the little fridge they have by the register. We had our own bread in the car and he made his own sandwich. Pros: we were in and out in no time, which is awesome on a road trip AND he had no reaction. Con: there’s nothing except the actual chicken salad that’s safe (no breads, desserts, etc).

They have gf wraps or great big salads with a scoop of a variety of flavors of chicken salad or egg salad. There is usually one gf soup daily. Very clean and pleasant.

First time I went and told them I was Celiac, they still put a gluten cookie on my tray. But fine whatever, it was wrapped so not a big deal

Second time, they left the cookie off, but 8 hours later like clockwork I was projectile vomiting and have had stomach cramps, nausea, and dizziness for over 12 hours now. Not worth it.

I had 2 scoops of the Nancy, celery, grape salad, and broccoli salad. All deemed safe, but my stomach says otherwise. 😒 Just make chicken salad at home if you have celiac.

They don’t even have the gluten free wraps at this location. And there’s zero gluten free dessert besides the grape salad. Which now I don’t even know if I can trust it because I got sick. It’s really just easier to make all this food at home

I ordered a scoop of chicken salad with a side of fruit. On their menu, the chicken salad is labeled GF. They do bot have gluten free bread or crackers, so I just ordered the salad. It tasted good but halfway through I noticed chunks of croissant that were in the chicken salad! There were also a few pieces of cheddar. Within an hour I started feeling the effects of being “glutened.” I do not recommend this establishment for the simple fact that they weren’t careful around something labeled GF. I also asked the cashier if they had GF bread and she said “I don’t know. It’s called white, wheat, or croissant.”
