The menu isn’t marked but the manager spent 5 or 10 minutes walking me through the menu and explaining my options. They do have a separate allergen menu (more like a list with checked boxes) but he knew what was GF and walked me through it. I had a chicken thigh Peri-Peri bowl. The sauce was tasty and addictive. The Portuguese rice was also very tasty and left me craving more. They have a lot of locations so I am sure I will be back during my travels.

I ate here twice because it was so wonderful! This is a chain fast casual but the food tastes fancy. I got the half chicken with rice and medium sauce the first time, and got chicken skewers with rice the second time. Open fairly late and perfect for takeout if you’re at a conference at Gaylord. You can walk up and ask workers about ingredients if worried, they have a book that outlines allergens.

Great options for those needing gluten free food. Chicken, fries, rice and some side salads are GF. Quick service in a comfortable atmosphere. Great for families with kids. Has wine for adults.

The staff have no clue about celiac disease. The greeter found a boiler plate allergen list but no one understood cross contamination as there are a lot of sandwiches on the menu. The person taking our order said there is no milk in the food so he should be ok. Miraculously our son did not have a reaction. Food was ok. Cashier was rude. Would not go back.

Absolutely the best food!! The vast majority of the menu is gluten free. The chicken is to die for. We got the chicken cooked plain(was still marinated for 24 hours) and put the sauce on it as we wanted it. The manager gave us free macaroons, hummus, and olives for our first visit. This is definitely one of if not our favorite restaurant now. Will definitely be back. Do yourself a favor and eat here...

Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable on GF menu items (most of the menu is gluten free). Chicken skewers were recommended, and were excellent. Many sides are GF. Quinoa salad was great. Recommended restaurant.

I had the chicken bowl without the hummus and a side of fries. I was told it was all gluten free but they were unsure if the hummus had cross contamination, so I opted for no hummus just to be safe. The fries are the only thing that go in the frier, so no cross contamination there. The food was not bad for a quick, easy meal across from my hotel. I did not get sick.

I dined in and had a positive experience the people were very nice and I watched the person who took my order tell the kitchen to be careful with cross contamination. I did not get sick and felt comfortable eating there! I would always say when eating somewhere that has gluten in the kitchen at all be very clear about the severity and ask them to change gloves etc!

Manager was pretty rude and didn’t want us to eat there even though it was 45min til they closed. Dirty environment too. I did not get sick from gluten but I wouldn’t recommend.

We always stop at Nando’s when we travel south. They have a well marked allergen booklet. We get the chicken livers, spicy olives, brussels sprouts without the sauce, shish kebabs, and half chicken. French fries are in a dedicated fryer. Enjoy!

While the restaurant isn’t dedicated gluten free, the staff are excellent about allergies! As soon as you tell the staff you have celiac/wheat allergy, they are running to the kitchen to ensure your order is prepared with new gloves, in a freshly cleaned area, and without any gluten ingredients. The servers automatically bring the allergen book and work directly with you to ensure you do not order anything that has hidden gluten. My husband and I both have celiac and have never had issues here :)
