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!
From their website (9/24/16):
Culver’s restaurants contain common allergens and our dishes are prepared to order; however, normal kitchen operations involve shared cooking and preparation areas and we cannot guarantee any menu item will be free of allergens. Items cooked in the fryers may come into contact with egg, milk, wheat/gluten, soy, fish and shrimp. Culver’s ground beef is 100% beef, and it is cooked on a grill with bread.
They do have gluten free buns, but if Celiac, they are not careful about cross contamination. My son was glutened.
They have gluten-free buns! So you can enjoy the burgers!
Ordered bacon deluxe burger, GF bun was soft and held together well. Bun comes in sealed bag to build your burger and minimize cross contamination. It was all fresh and very good.
Service was excellent! Friendly & knowledgeable especially for first timers.
Would definitely go again.
They cooked Fries in same fryer so be careful!!!

They were so amazing! I came in the middle of the dinner rush and they made sure to make me feel listened to and understood, changed gloves as soon as I said gluten free, scraped the grill down really well before they cooked the burgers and even packaged my meal separate from my family’s regular meals, and marked very clearly. The gluten free bun was individually sealed and so delicious I couldn’t believe it was GF! Need to find out where they get them! I even had to add all my condiments at home because the girl that put my order together was really concerned about cross contamination— I will always take overly cautious staff as a bonus!! So, so impressed. As a newly diagnosed celiac, I am so glad to know this old favorite is safe.
The dining room is closed, so the only option is drive-thru. I was asked upon ordering if my gluten free request was a preference or an allergy. I was also informed that the fries are in a shared fryer. Super impressed since I didn’t have to state my allergy or ask about the fryer! I chose the mushroom and Swiss with the GF bun. Even though there is contamination and that’s normally an automatic no, I opted for the fries anyway. It’s been an hour since I’ve eaten and no reaction so far. I live about five minutes from the restaurant and so I was disappointed to find a bun in a bag with condensation in it. Made for a soggy bun. From reading the reviews, I now see they steam it so now I know to open the bag on the drive home and maybe remove it from the top of the burger container. The burger itself was dry but it came with no condiments which is typical for mushroom Swiss, that’s why I’m giving 4 stars. Otherwise, it was a good quick meal and friendly, informative service.
