Went here because of review and didn't fare so well. They seemed confused in handling my sons sandwich, when he simply asked for a ham and cheese on gluten free bread with mayonaisse. Explained that they would need to change gloves and be very careful, told them about gluten and to be very careful. Even used the word allergy, because I thought they would get it then. Then I ordered a grilled chicken salad and told them the same. Also said please no croutons, although it wasn't listed in description of salad. However, when it came there were croutons on it. I told them please take it back and make me another. When it was brought I found little tiny crumbs of bread(croutons) as though they only picked it off. Then to top that off, they forgot we ordered drinks. First time at this location and definitely last time. They need better educations on contamination especially being they are offering gluten free bread options.

Love that there is a sandwich shop with gluten free bread. Can build your own sandwich as well. Good substitute for Panera Bread. Not many soup options, but offer baked potatoes as a side. Delicious! And the staff is very friendly and attentive!!!

Asked the gentleman behind the counter if the ranch was gluten free. He wasn’t sure, he then asked a lady in the kitchen area & these were the words I heard her tell him. “No! Nothing here is really gluten free”

Wonderful staff. Use Udi bread for any sandwich on menu. Have salads & potatoes but don't know about salad dressings. Will be a staple for take out & dine in. This was Beaumont, TX location.

This location of McAlister’s is the best! I eat here probably once a week and have never gotten sick! They have gf bread which isn’t bad. If you tell them it’s an allergy they won’t put it on the grill (cc). Their baked potatoes are also delicious! Love this place and feel very safe eating here.

When ordering with gluten free bread they all of it’s an allergy or a preference. They then change gloves and use different utensils. I’ve never had a problem at any of their locations.

They have amazing gluten free bread! They also ask if you have a gluten free allergy or if it’s a preference (I’m assuming for how they prep the food). The food was really good!
