You can upgrade your order for $1.50 extra to get an individually wrapped gluten-free Udi’s bun that stays in its package but they heat it up. Tell the staff you need your burger/grilled chicken sandwich/salad to be gluten free and they mark your ticket with “gluten allergy” and they will follow their allergy protocol. Unfortunately, their fries are not GF. I get the side of coleslaw which is GF. Plain vanilla custard with Reese’s PB cups on top is my go-to dessert. I have eaten at this location (and others) many times and have never been glutened.

While staying at a nearby local hotel last weekend, I ordered gf cheeseburger and Reese's concrete mixer. I always tell them for wheat allergy. As always, great meal from a culvers while traveling without cross contamination!! I was happy to see Culver's wasn't closed as one reviewer stated.

They have gluten free buns that they heat up in plastic bags. You have to assemble your own burger.

They have a really good gluten free bun that comes still wrapped (but steamed!). Lots of meat options and good chili! Plus the frozen custard is a nice treat. :-)

Have great UDI buns and food allergy prep training. Fries are not celiac friendly but they do applesauce instead. Love the burgers and custard!!

Staff was very knowledgeable and they even gave me a pamphlet that shows what is GF and what could be cross-contaminated. They package and prepared it in a way that is super easy.

With careful prompting, the staff does really well about avoiding cross-contamination. But avoid rush periods because In pmy experience, the likelihood of getting glutened rises significantly.

Culver’s maintains a gluten free fryer, and have a gluten free bun that you can use for grilled chicken or burgers. The bun comes in a sealed package and the chicken is prepared separately and packaged separately. Their custard is also great. I have never had any problems eating here, it’s my go to for GF fast food.

Ordered single butter burger with cheese with the gluten free bun (not toasted) alerted them to allergies- it came out separate and bun was still nicely wrapped, with 2 individual ketchup packets. It tasted great and no reaction! (extremely sensitive celiac)

Yes they have a gf bun but fries are not gf like website lists. Their fries themselves are gf but they do not have their own dedicated fryer which means other items with gluten such as cheese curds are fried in that same fryer. My husband was very disappointed. Plus employee mouthed off that all fries are technically gf (which they are not if you’ve seen labels for seasoned fries in frozen section) just not gf once fried with other items.

Got the grilled chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun, the bun was really good. It’s really hard to find fast food places to eat because not only am I allergic to wheat but beef as well. It was definitely a good sandwich.

I definitely will not go back to Culver’s. You pay $6 for a hamburger and the patty is so thin you can’t even taste the meat on the bun. Not worth the money. They do have gf buns but it’s not worth eating because the bread is so thick you can’t taste the meat. Rethink your patty size Culver’s.

I used to eat at the Culver's in Lake Nona and never got sick. After eating at this location, I got horribly sick and will never go back to a Culver's again! Too risky. Super disappointed.

Got glutened. Even though we said gf. Bun was in a separate bag. My burger was upside down cheese melted on paper. I got extremely sick after. There is no dedicated frier for fries so not a lot of food options. Burger wasn’t very good.

GF bun is packaged and warmed separately. If you notify the staff when taking your order, they will alert the cook (marked “allergy” on the ticket) who will take extra care to avoid contamination. I’ve eaten at several Culver’s, including this one, and have yet to get sick. It’s safest to go right after they open so there is less for the cooks to clean off the grill, although I’ve personally had no issues during lunch either.

I was at the singing Hills location in Sioux City. The person I ordered from didn’t know if the fries were fried in their own fryer, he asked the manager, and the manager said that the oil they use has gluten in it. They also said that each owner will do things differently at various culvers locations. So please be sure that you’re asking at each location if it is safe or not

Gluten free bun comes in a bag to prevent contamination but the burger and toppings are prepared in a shared space. If you tell them it is an allergy they try to decrease cross contamination as much as possible. I’m not a super sensitive celiac and have always been fine after eating here. Also the concretes can all be made gf!

Hamburger looked and tasted like a repeat. Dry, crispy and only filled 1/2 of my Gluten free bun. Not sure how they prepared it so poorly. Husbands, not GF, same thing. Not edible. Only 2 stars for GF bun.

Delicious burgers! They bring food out separately to avoid cross contamination. They seemed knowledgeable about gluten free and had many precautions in place. The Udi’s hamburger buns are wrapped and come out next to the meat so you can assemble it yourself. The grilled chicken sandwich was also good. We also had coleslaw that was delicious. Fries are not celiac safe. We ate here twice and loved our meals both time!

Delicious burgers with GF bun. They are careful regarding Celiac Disease. Couldn’t have their fries, so had their coleslaw which was delicious. Their chocolate shake was amazing! They have a brochure that lists what’s GF! Will be coming back for sure! 👍

The Culver’s in Fox Lake is the only place I truly feel comfortable eating at in Fox Lake! It’s a newer restaurant and they do have a dedicated French fry frier, so the fries are gluten free! They’re awesome about making sure everything is safe and the bun always comes in a bag to help prevent cross contamination. My go-to is the pot roast on a GF bun and it’s awesome with some BBQ sauce!

Steer clear of this place. There flyer shows gluten in almost everything yet they said grilled chicken safe. Great you have a bun, who cares if x- contamination occurs on grill, it did for me, sick 30 min. Later. Clueless staff, as if I was the 1st person to ask about GF. My first and last visit to this chain. -- Not Celiac-- Have Allergy Dx , Since 2011.

My parents wanted to stop here on the way home from a dog rescue event. They have nothing gluten free, everything is fried together. Said they could give me a side salad without croutons. Asked if ranch was gluten free. Nope. I don’t understand why gluten would be in ranch in the first place... and if it is, keep a bottle of Hidden Valley on hand.

I’ve eaten here several times. The staff is knowledgeable about gluten free and will help you pick out items on their large menu that are gluten free. They have tasty gf buns provided (I believe) by Udis. The buns come in a separate bag and you assemble the sandwich yourself.

As a Celiac, it’s like a piece of heaven when you discover a place that seems to “get it”! Culver’s has gluten-free buns, a dedicated gluten-free fryer, and they even keep their glutenous fryer on the other side of the kitchen!!! Yay! Thank you, Culver’s!! Post script: after reading some of the other reviews, I did some research on their menu and found where they say their crinkle cut fries do NOT have wheat. And since this location uses a dedicated fryer, I’m not worried about it. But I will let you know if I get sick. ;-)
