    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.

    I was given regular wheat bread at this location causing me anaphylaxis. I asked multiple times about safety and they assured me. This place had about the worst service ever. Poor management. Maybe another McAllister’s is good but this location is horrible.

    This was not a good experience. They said they knew as bout gluten but I got cross contaminated here. I was told the potatos were gf, but when they came out I knew they had been in a fryer. So I did not eat the potatoes, just the omelet but I still got sick.

    They were helpful up front but something got cc'd in the back. My daughter was sick within an hour. She ate a baked potato with bacon, a few sips of tomato bisque soup, and a few bites of a turkey and cheese sandwich on gluten free bread. So disappointed, was hoping she'd be safe based on other reviews of this location. We may try again but just a potato to see if she gets cc'd.

    The gluten free bread here is great! I also get no cheese for a dairy allergy and the staff has only given me cheese once in two years, which is pretty great for a take out restaurant. Definitely gluten free friendly with several soups and side to choose from as well!

    The staff had no knowledge of any gluten containing items and were unwilling to listen to requests as simple as “please change your gloves”. No allergen menu offered and no gluten-free bread like other locations carry. If you have Celiac or are gluten sensitive at all, DO NOT EAT HERE.

Lots of choices and the managaer and staff were very helpful in making sure of no cross contamination. We found another gluten free favorite in Dothan! Yesssss

    The gluten free sandwich I had was amazing! However, they do give you a warning that it is NOT celiac friendly and there is a high chance of cross contamination. I tried it out and unfortunately got sick after. If you are celiac, don’t take the risk.

    The staff where very nice so was the manger and I got the Italian chopped salad and when they where coming out with the food they almost got to are table before they forgot if they changed there gloves or not so they went back and made the whole salad over again. (Ps I did not get sick and on a scale from 1 to 10 I am like a 12 when I eat gluten.)

    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.
