I wanted to add a review about my recent experience because there are only old reviews on here. To me, it seems like they are taking more GF precautions now. I ordered the gluten-free bread on my sandwich and the cashier immediately asked if I had an allergy because they would change gloves for me. They have some certified GF bags of kettle chips as well.

I'm changing me previous review due to an experience that I had there today. I went in and ordered as usual explaining that part of my order was for a gluten allergy (celiac disease more easily described as an allergy.) They assured me that the cook knew the prep had do be done differently. While I was waiting on my order, said cook decided to stand in the window making jokes about allergies. Not only was he completely out of line but, he was scratching his head and being obnoxious and loud making sure that we heard him. Not only am I reporting this to corporate but, I will also be contacting the health department. I would NOT recommend this place for you if you have Celiac.

We had lunch there today and it was good. I got half of an orange cranberry club on gluten free bread. Ham, turkey, bacon, cheddar, spring mix, orange cranberry sauce (so good) and mayo with half of a Ceasar salad (no croutons). I think they understood about cross contamination but I’m not really sure. But it was yummy.

They have a good GF bread it falls apart and gets soggy easily but it tastes really good! I get the reuben (sorry for misspelling) with the spud chips. But I’ve had the potatoes and they’re super good too! I’ve never had any issues here. Plus it’s easy to read the menu

McAlister's now has a GF bun and can make most sandwiches GF! Just let the staff know and they will prepare your meal by taking precautions (switching gloves and separate space). For a side, I order fruit or a bag of chips.

Their menu doesn't really give them justice on their gluten free capabilities. They have GF bread and can make most of their sandwiches GF. If you tell them you have a food allergy they take extra precautions like changing gloves and putting the sandwich on a special tray in their oven. I've been coming here every week for months now and never gotten sick. I love it!
