I eat here often and they are so careful. Every staff member has been able to answer my Gf questions and they have a very easy to read gf menu. Never gotten sick!

Folks seek to always be trained at Culver’s. When you mention gf wheat allergy they know what you’re saying. I always say to make sure they use a new spatula in the back and they actually go back and tell the cook. Gf buns too!

When ordering GF at counter, clerk asks if GF is a sensitivity or intolerance and enters on your order. GF celiac (“intolerance”) means they will take extra steps to avoid contamination. Burgers are very good and served with the GF free bun in a sealed wrapper for you to assemble yourself. Their website has comprehensive Gluten information for all their products. Note: deep fried foods are NOT GF. Overall, a pretty good fast food option for burgers (with lots of topping options), salads, chili, and frozen desserts.

They are extremely diligent when I have ordered and let them know it is due to an allergy. If there is a chance of contamination they let me know so I can opt out before paying.

Explained that I have celiac. They changed gloves and gave me a GF bun still sealed. The fries were amazing! I extremely reactive to any amount of gluten. Did NOT get sick. Extremely happy. Loved their burger.

This location DOES have gluten free buns all of the time, unless they happen to run out for the week.

Culver’s is a safe staple for me. The burgers and toppings are so fresh. The GF buns come steamed in a sealed bag.

TIP: crack open the bag to let the steam out if you aren’t eating right away. You can sub fries (not gf) for coleslaw when you get a basket.

They get 4-stars because you HAVE to check your order when you receive it to make sure it was prepared correctly. Never a gluten issue, they just always get the toppings wrong on my sandwich.
