Good selection of gluten free options with bread but I got sick eating there three times in a row from cross contamination. Avoid if you have celiacs.

We always have great experiences with McAlisters. We get our daughter a baked potato with butter, sour cream, cheese and olives. They also have some other gf safe foods like fruit cups.

They have a few items marked gluten friendly. No salads are marked as such due to croutons. The initial worker said the salads wouldn’t be GF even without the croutons. We asked if she could please check and another worker came and assured us that the salad without croutons was GF and all the dressings are GF.

They have a separate toaster for the GF bread but you have to remind them. Then after all that, they put a cookie on my daughter's plate. Argh

Great place as they have quite a lot of gluten free foods!! See their online allergen menu. They even offer a gluten free bread!! All salad dressings & condiments are gluten free. Their Vegi Chili is gluten free, but their meat chili is NOT! I eat there regularly, with no issues. I’ve eaten many of their sandwiches & salads! One of Texarkana’s managers, named Brian, is very helpful if you’re needing gluten free!!
