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.

The staff member was great but after asking my probing questions, said if I have a wheat allergy or celiac she would not recommend eating there, since they cannot guarantee no CC. So my family ate and I went to the Chick fil a down the street that happens to have a separate fryer for fries and separate grill for grilled chicken. NCGI would probably be fine, but not guaranteed safe for Celiac.

Today I decided to stop into Culver's (#544) after hearing from a friend that there were gluten free buns available. I walk into the store and I talk to one of the nicest young man at the register explaining that I heard that they served gluten free buns. He told me yes that they did, and then I asked about the gluten free environment. I was nervous that he wasn't going to understand what I was trying to ask but I was completely blown away at his complete and caring response. He let me know that they serve gluten free buns that will be warmed still in the factory wrapper to make sure they stay gluten free, that the kitchen staff washes their hands changes their gloves AND uses separate toppings for the burgers to make sure there was no cross contamination. At this point I felt more than safe eating here and thanked him for explaining it to me. I asked if the fries were gluten free and he explained to me that they were fried in oil with other gluten items, so instead I got a root beer float. He both marked on the register that I had a gluten allergy and verbally explained to the kitchen that I had an allergy and to be extra careful. When I got the burger everything was as he said with the burger toppings arranged in a separate box on this lovely little wrapper that made it super easy to assemble the burger and add the ketchup from separate packets to it. It was an absolute pleasure eating here!

Staff had no idea what I meant when I said "celiac." *cue eyeroll* ugh. Then I asked if has a dedicated gf fryer & staff member said, "Ummmmm, let me check?" Already knew how this was going @ this point. Staff came back & reported no....so I bolted, bc no dedicated fryer & no idea what celiac or gluten is? No thank youuu! #notceliacsafe

I had researched my options prior to coming. I informed the employee taking orders that I had a gluten allergy (easiest way to explain quickly). He clearly had been trained on what to do to flag my order. He informed me they had a gluten free bun rather than having to go gluten free (let's be honest...no bun is better sometimes). They had a sign posted on the menu asking for to be notified of allergies. When my food was brought out they advised me mine was being cooked and brought separately for my protection.

Culver’s is my go to, always! I get a burger typically with the gluten free bun that is packaged separately. They also steam it so it is not cold and crumbly. I would ask if the fries are fried in a dedicated fryer because some locations do and some do not. Staff are always so kind about dietary restrictions too and are knowledgeable.

Ate a cheeseburger with the separate GF bun here, gave the whole celiac spiel and had an allergy alert on my order. Felt somewhat sick for a day after like I’d been cross-contaminated, which sucks since Culver’s is usually so good. I went right after the eclipse so they were super busy and I’m guessing there was a lapse in protocol. I’m sure they are usually good based on other reviews but probably best to avoid when they’re in a big rush.
