Separate fryer for the fries and gluten free buns.
I'm very allergic and I eat here all of the time. I've never had the fries, and would never order fries at any restaurant unless I knew their kitchen practices made it very safe. I get the hamburger bun which is good and a side salad. I've rarely had any problems with the salad as I also specify no toast on the side. I'm allergic enough I wouldn't eat anything that touched gluten. I don't think I've ever had issues here.
Fuddrucker's ONLY accommodates gluten-free by offering a gluten-free hamburger bun. They used to have gluten-free fries but I learned from the manager that now onion rings are fried in the same fryer as the steak fries. The only gluten-free side option is a salad. Very disappointing that the steak fries are cross-contaminated now!!
We just went there last night. It took three tries to get a salad with no croutons. The buns may have been gluten free but we suspect serious cross contamination. The fries are NOT gluten free. They are fried with onion rings. If you are allergic to gluten (celiac) avoid this Fudruckers.
they just got gf buns!!!! they have a special area for cooking.
Staff was familiar with their gluten free offerings and assured me I would be safe eating there. I had a cheeseburger on a gluten free bun with potato wedges (I requested no seasoning). I felt safe eating there, had no issues, and I will be back!
Ate a free birthday 1/3 lb burger there for lunch today because I'm on the email list. I do not have a problem with cross contamination, but was told that they would change gloves. The bun was one of the better gf buns I've had. Since gluten free buns are crumbly I wrap them in the wax paper they are served on, like burgers used to be wrapped. It keeps the buns from falling all apart while eating the burger. I had the sweet potato fries which needed to be hotter. But I asked for some of the fry sauce which made the cold fries taste better. The people were very friendly and helpful. Nice environment! I don't know how celiac friendly it is.
I've been to Fuddruckers several times since being diagnosed with Celiac's, and haven't gotten sick. Normally I get a burger (my favorite is the Hangover) on lettuce, with a side of apples. However, after hearing from multiple sources that the fries have a dedicated frier, I tried them, an again, no problems. Just be clear with the staff that they need to be careful with your food. I've been to two different locations, and the staff were helpful and responsive at both.
I ate here last weekend. was told they never put bread on the grill, it's in its own toaster. because of that they do not toast the GF buns. I had the hang over burger, very good and no symptoms. only bummer was they only had one type of chips and basically NO other sides for me.
The kid at the register was very knowledgeable about gluten-free and even informed me that though the fries are considered gluten-free, they are fried with all the other fried foods. I avoided the fries, enjoyed my burger with a gluten-free bun (prepared with separate gloves and not placed on the grill with other buns), and had a side salad. This Celiac person had no troubles!!
The manager couldn't tell me what dressing was gluten free. While corporate says the fries are in their own fryer, he said they do their best, but it's likely not GF. I didn't feel like eating a pile of meat and no salad or side. I was not confident based on their concern that even that could be safe. The reviews from a few years ago said the same, and it appears it hasn't changed. I sat and watched my son eat. I was so flustered, we should have just left and gone elsewhere.
Ordered a burger with gluten free bun and side salad. Had to second guess and ask if the bun was truly gluten free bc it looked so airy and tasty. It was and it was one of the best gluten-free burgers I've ever had. So happy and satisfied, would be five stars but the bun was $2 extra and just seemed a bit pricey, but worth it
Great Service! I have Celiac disease and my husband does not, but prefers gluten free food. The staff was very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My husband ordered a burger with sweet potato fries and they informed him that the fries were cooked in the same fryer as gluten containing food and double checked to make sure this would not make him sick. I ordered the gluten free bun and burger with a side salad mixed in a desperate bowl w/ no croutons. I had no digestive problems! Great food and service! Highly recommend!
Great experience with Kathleen, the manager, in Corpus Christi. When I asked the cashier about GF options, she immediately got the manager to go over all options. She spoke directly to my celiac and offered to bake her french fries. Kathleen made my child's dinner herself and informed us that the fry sauce has seasoning in it that contains wheat ingredients (spud seasoning) so we avoided that. No tummy aches but I can only say it's Celiac safe because the manager was amazing. Not sure if the rest of the staff would know what to do.
I called before I went to ask about gluten free options. Spoke to knowledgeable manager who explained to me how the GF bun is in a sealed wrapper to avoid contamination. The fries are not safe b/c they don't have a dedicated fryer. Glad to know I can still go out for a burger.
Wasn't my style I guess. The GF bun literally fell apart as my son and I tried to eat our burgers. I did like that there were so many options available for toppings to add after getting the burger. Tater tots and fries were OK. Not my favorite. I would go back if someone else wanted to go there, but neither my son nor I would choose to go there again.
The person taking my order was unsure of gluten free procedures. However, they did double check with management and reassured me that my chicken was cooked in a gluten free, dedicated area. The fries are also gluten free. They did cover my food to prevent from cross contamination while waiting for me to pick up. The restaurant itself is very clean. I left a happy customer!
I went there and waited through a long line to get to the register and be told the only thing they could safely offer for Celiacs is fries. Their burgers are not gluten free, and are prepared in the same area with the rest of their food. Even the milkshakes are not safe because they make Oreo cookie shakes and don't have a separate machine for mixing other shakes.
Excellent burger. The bun comes from a local gluten free bakery-it great to eat a burger inside a bun. Fries also delicious
The burger was good and I had no problems except it sat heavy in my stomach. Big selection of condiments.
The cashier was extremely helpful!! We came for a fundraiser event and I was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I was able to get a gluten free bun warmed up in the microwave, no contact with the grill. No fries though since they couldn't guarantee they hadn't switched up and cooked onion rings in the same vat at some point. Celiac friendly if you aren't interested in fries.
Turkey and Hamburgers are great with a very good GF bun that is extra but worth it. NO GF fries. Have to go to Mighty Fine for those.
