The server told that they had a separate fryer for the fries, but my fries came out with something mixed in that was breaded and deep fried. The gluten free bun was stale. I won't be going back.

Celiac friendly?

Staff was willing to ask their cook about the fryer, which I appreciated. No fry-only fryer, but they serve a gf bun in it’s own bag. Not totally celiac friendly, but it’s a (mostly) safe place to have a decent burger!

I look up the menu online, since it's easier to see what is gluten free and what is not. They normally have paper menus with allergen charts if you ask.

I normally always get the burger with a gluten free bun. The bun comes out steamed, in a plastic wrapper. The burger insides come in a paper box.

For sides, the fryer is shared, so I get the seasonal vegetable, slaw, or chili. I like the chili the best as a side (small up charge).

For ice cream, I get the pre-packed pints. The ingredients are. The packed pints.

It is a shared kitchen, but they did a good job with the handling of my food and I didn't get sick.

I was SOOO excited to learn this facility has a DEDICATED FRYER!! I was told they have 4 fryers and one is specifically for fries only.

Also, Culver's has one of the best gluten free buns I've ever had!!

My food was delicious!

This Culver’s is sometimes hot or miss. I make sure to inform them gem of my gluten allergy. You either get someone who understands and makes sure to pass it on or I get home and bloat like I’m 6 months pregnant. But for the most part that are good.
