    The management bought a loaf of gluten free bread for me after we talked about gluten sensitivities. The sandwich they made was great! I was so impressed with their willingness to serve my family gluten free. Edited to add that I had a very bad cross contamination exposure the last time I went in. Management seems very interested in helping gluten free customers but the staff really need to be trained to handle food correctly.

    The only options safe for me were potatoes. I clearly stated that I also can't have dairy. They brought out three different potatoes before they got it right.

    The Hot Springs, AR location has gluten free bread and they are knowledgeable about allergens. They make the sandwich on a separate board with new gloves. Other GF items are marked on the menu

    McAlisters doesn’t disappoint! They use Udi’s bread and are careful to be sure you receive the correct order. This is a clean and friendly location. We look for it when in the area.

    Horrible experience, avoid this place if you have celiac disease or any other food allergy. I ordered a sandwich with “gluten free” bread, but the cashier was very unprofessional and laughing as I was ordering and did not take my order seriously. After eating 1/4 of my sandwich I felt weird about it and ended up finding out that it was made on whole wheat bread.If you have any food allergies don’t risk eating here.

    enjoyed ordering a sandwich as gluten free bread is available. the counter clerk was knowledgeable about Celiac disease, he was diagnosed several years earlier, person preparing food changed gloves and took appropriate measures. Not all employees are as well trained about gluten. I enjoyed a grilled Ruben and salad. tomato basil soup is yummy.

    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.

    This location was great when it first opened, but has backslid quite a bit. The manager tonight was not familiar with what "Celiac" meant, and was not overly cautious when taking my order after I explained; he didn't know the gluten content of the menu items. Another cashier had to point out to him that all bread is toasted on a common toaster, so toasted gluten-free bread was not an option for someone who has to be safe. Even after that conversation, he brought my sandwich to me with toasted bread, and said he didn't remember us deciding on toasted versus non-toasted, even though he was the one taking and ringing up my order, and was standing right there when it was all discussed. I usually stick to salads, and will do so from now on if I return. From a non-food-allergy perspective, the quality and quantity of the food has also gone down.

    I’ve eaten here twice and the staff is super friendly and the food is delicious. They have Udi’s bread and many other menu items that are gluten free; things other than salad! They have great nachos and baked potatoes. I had the New Yorker and horseradish roast beef and cheddar. Both incredible sandwiches. The bread can get a bit soggy, but I’m sure non-gf bread does too.

    Went here almost last year and am writing a review now. They staff was very nice about people with gluten or food allergies! Got the grilled ham and cheese on GF bread, chips and a lemonade. It was good but the bread was not the best GF bread I've had. Wouldn't reccemond for celiacs though I know that there is cross contamination where they prep the wheat food. I didn't get sick! Would reccemond!

    This is about the Jefferson Pointe location. They think Celiac is big joke. Manager Louie took my order and could barely contain his disdain at my request my sandwich be made on a GF surface. After I paid he turned to girl making sandwiches and told her that the customer has a SERIOUS GLUTEN ALLERGY (with clear overexaggeration and sarcasm) and she laughed... but, oops, I was still standing there. Manager had to save face so he insisted they were joking about something else, then proceeded to tell me that he wasn't going to make his employees stop having fun at work. That is 100% their priority, not the customer.

    Food was good, though my roast beef on gluten free bread seemed to have less meat on it than my husbands ruben. The menu was marked for gluten sensitive, but none of the sandwiches were marked and there wasn’t any indication on the menu that gluten free bread was an option. As a plus, they didn’t charge extra for the gluten free bread. I wouldn’t suggest coming at 2 on a Saturday afternoon because we waited over 20 minutes for our food, they seemed to be having trouble handling the rush they had.
