I’ve gotten their burgers many times with a GF bun, and I’ve never gotten sick. Sometimes the buns are a day old.
Let me start by saying that I do have celiac disease. I truly enjoy Culver's bacon cheeseburger on a gluten-free bun. I also enjoy their french fries but a word of caution, there could be some cross contamination with the fries. They do have a dedicated fryer for french fries and the workers are trained but mistakes can happen.
If you are celiac, you can get a burger with gluten-free bun. If it's more of a preference, you can also have the fries, but there may be some cc.
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.
This is one of my go-to places for fast food, especially burgers and ice cream!! I'm aware that they offer warmed gf buns individual wrapped to prevent cross contamination. Burgers and grilled chicken sandwich. Chili and broccoli cheese soups. Cole slaw, applesauce, mashed potatoes (w/out gravy), and green beans as gf side options. They also have m&m and Reese's concrete mixers--I've never had an issue with cross contamination as long I tell them "wheat allergy". They can also make your own variation of a mixer if you prefer. Their website lists allergens, however, they do not have a dedicated fryer so fries are not gf.
I was trying to order a burger with out a bun and the sweet lady taking my order told me they had gluten free buns. The buns are in their own bag, would be warm when I got it and I could request condiments, lettuce, onion etc that would Come from a fresh bag that wouldn’t be touching anything else. My mustard and ketchup were given to me in packets. I didn’t mind having to assemble my burger myself. I felt this was nicely thought out so that I am protected from what I like to call cross pollination. :) I felt grateful that in a pinch I know I have one more place I can go to to grab a quick bite. Side note: the bun is good. Soft, not overly grainy - works well with the burger.
I go to this Culvers and the one in winter garden on a regular basis. They are very knowledgeable and careful with gluten free items and cross contamination. They have a dedicated fryer for fries although there may be filtered oil from the other fryer so if you are super sensitive I would order one of the the other gluten safe sides. All burgers and sandwiches can be served on a gluten free bun which is pretty tasty.
The fryer is “separate” but all the grease goes and circulates from all. So separate does not mean safe. Intentions to be gf friendly are there but I can say with certainty that they are intentions. I have gotten sick multiple times ordering the same thing :( Other times safe and fine so it depends, on the flip side the food is good
They were very knowledgeable about gf and cross contamination. Disappointed I couldn’t get fries, but burger alone was plenty to fill me. They have an individually wrapped gf bun that is steamed and then you put your own sandwich together to avoid contamination. It was also recommended to use packets to put on your own mayo and ketchup.
For an extra $1 You can request a gluten free bun for any of their sandwiches. It is UDI's brand and served warm and sealed. You do have to assemble your sandwich yourself but I believe that is to protect the integrity of the bun. Also, be sure to ask for ketchup, mayo, etc...they tend to forget to supply the condiment that comes on the sandwich unless you specifically request it.
I give 5 stars simply because it is an oddity for a fast food restaurant to even know what GF is, much less offer a GF bun as an option. However, I wouldn't eat there on a regular basis simply because for the last six years we have not had fast food as an option where I'm from and we have learned to eat REAL food. My daughter ate the bun but wouldn't touch the burger. My burger had enough toppings I enjoyed mine (Wisconsin Swiss Melt) but all the while knowing what a terrible choice I was making! Ha! But it was really nice to have a quick option for once!
I'm torn on what to write so I'll state the facts. I got a snack pack with a gluten free bun and was asked, "allergy or preference" and informed them allergy. I got the slaw as a side and then asked if I could get an unassembled concrete mixer (ice cream in a cup and Reese cups either on top or in a separate cup) so that they wouldn't have to clean the mixer out to make it safe for me. I was pleasantly surprised to have the server tell me that they, in fact, have an allergen mixer. So, everything on the screen was marked gluten free *allergy* and I was excited about having a drive through GF option. On the way home, I took a couple bites of my concrete mixer and on the 3rd bite, the texture was different and chewy. I spit the bite out and it was a brownie piece. I was so disappointed as I knew what would be soon to come for me, hives ans lesions on my face and neck and 2 days worth of mood swings, anxiety, and all the other psychological symptoms I get hit with. When I called a few days later, I spoke with a manager who is sending me some coupons to make up for it. While I appreciate the gesture, and I also understand that they can't completely eliminate the risk (brownies are brown, peanut butter cups are brown), I felt let down because I had been reassured about the mixer and also because I didn't listen to my instincts to have the toppings separate to be able to check myself. TL;DR: I got glutened, but I may try again and just get my ice cream plain and add toppings at home.
Counter Staff A+ for knowledge & helpful. GF bun provided in cellophane, steamed so it was warm, soft & tasty. Very good burger! Did not try fries as they said the oil is filtered, but I am not willing to risk it. They do change gloves & prepare your meat separately.
First of all, the staff is very accommodating and caring about the gluten. I am Celiac’s and they offered me a gluten free bun and coleslaw as a side. I just ate there and it all looked clean but I’ll have to wait and see if they could actually avoid cross-contamination. The burgers are not the world’s greatest but definitely saves the day on a road trip! Will hopefully be back.
They had gluten free buns that came in it’s own individual bag and they were delicious! The burgers are gluten free but they have a warning that they are cooked on the same grill as those with regular buns. They have amazing custard and plenty of gluten free options! Their website has a whole section regarding gluten free options. Overall we were very happy to find this place!
The gf burgers come out on a separate tray from other food. If you want a gf bun (Udi), it's warmed in the wrapper for you to open and assemble. Fries are gf, but the oil is cleaned with the same filter as the other oil, so they say there is a chance of cc. The times I've been there, the cooks are trained well and very careful.
