They say it’s gluten free and promise they are doing everything right, but I was absolutely glutened at this location. Maybe Chips in general is safe, but not this restaurant.

Poor experience at this Chips restaurant and we have visited several others in the state with never an issue. My daughter ordered gluten free Cinnabon pancakes explaining she needs food to be gluten free as well as hash browns and bacon. I should have known better when I asked for cream for my ice coffee and the waitress never brought it. When she put down pancakes and I had inquired again if gluten free she assured me they were. They in fact were NOT!!! Not fun to have to sit by your child and hold her hair back because she was GLUTENED!!!

Loved the pancakes. Stayed with safe toppings such as macadamia nuts and strawberries. Not sure if chips (white, Peanut butter, chocolate are GF). The breakfast potatoe skins were not very good. Hard edges on the potatoe, overcooked eggs, bland and the cut up fruit was tasteless. The salsa is a bit spicy but good if you like that sport of thing. Coffee rather weak. Service was friendly and attentive.

I got sick from the pancakes, either because they were not gluten free or because they were underdone or both. The regular menu items are good but you just have to eat around things like usual. Waiters have no understanding of a gluten allergy.

Love the gluten-free pancakes, especially because they'll do all their pancake menu options with the gf flour mix.

The GF Chocolate Chip, Pecan, and Coconut Pancakes were absolutely delicious. The Build Your Own Omelette was also delicious and very filling. The service was quick and very friendly. Definitely recommend!

You can get most any of the pancakes gluten free! I had cinnamon bun pancakes and did not get sick. There could be more marking on other menu BUT my main thing is pancakes so I was happy with that. Plate comes out different and they are knowledgeable on what else you can get besides pancakes.
