Met the owner of this franchise. One of the first to offer gluten free bread. Many gluten free options and very friendly staff.

The staff here is always so kind and friendly. Unfortunately, some of them don't realize that bread isn't the only thing you have to worry about. I didn't feel great after eating a grilled chicken sandwich, and I'm scared of the gravy. I haven't tried it and I'm not sure anyone can convince me it's safe.

McAlister's offers a huge menu and not only are so many options gluten-free (giant spuds, salads, all of the dressings), they carry Rudis gluten-free bread. Any of the sandwiches are available on it. I asked about cross contamination and was told that they change gloves and have a special cutting board to use for these orders. The bread is not sent through the toaster, rather grilled on the panini press to avoid the crumbs in the toaster.

I work here and I love the food! They always are careful to not contaminate. Just make sure you tell them allergy not preference.

I've been told by people that work there that they sprinkle flour on the salads even though they are listed as gluten free.
