Also the E Sunshine location...After some training & my talking to the Mgr, they go above & beyond to make it safe for us to eat there! Haven't had an issue since I called the Mgr 2 yrs ago now. Can have any grilled meat w/o bun, can have cheese, & veggies (no mayo due to spatula being used). Can also have any salad & most dressings as well as their Chili!Tell them bread allergy & they should change their gloves automatically. We ask anyway just to be sure they do in case there's a new employee that forgets to do it.
Their fries and chicken are gluten free...Their burgers are not. I've tested them with my NIMA gluten sensor. The gluten free menu on their site is wrong because it says the burgers are safe. Their fries and salad are really good compared to most fast food.
Wendy's staff is not knowledgeable about food allergies BUT, Wendy's offers baked potatoes, chili, salads, and frosty's all gf. The salads are all packaged with condiments (dressings and croutons) separate. The taco salad comes with corn chips and salsa and chili all packaged separate. Worth is for quick take out!
These guys are great. I wasnt sure what to expect as i have stayed away from fast food since being diagnosed with celiac. I mentioned to the lady at the counter that I had celiac and right away she said she would let the preparer know and to have her change gloves and prepare it separatly. I was like. Wow... So Erica. Thank you for keeping me safe.. I had no reactions and she had put me at ease with her attention to details.
Nobody that works here knows what their gluten free options are. They refer you to their website. Don't list restaurants on this website if they aren't truly gluten free or if their employees don't have a clue what gluten free items are! I'm sure there's only two options...can't be hard to remember or train your employees.
I thought they were very accommodating of my son (egg allergy) and me (wheat sensitive). They assured us our burgers wouldn't touch a bun and they were very good about it. I also had a chili cheese potato and my son had apple slices. Frosty's for dessert topped off a decent meal and no stomach aches! I love how how simple their allergen menu was online. Refreshing compared to my experience at McDs across the street!
it was very good idea like it thanks for this article
They're very accommodating in that they'll change their gloves and put your sandwich in this nice little container and make sure you have silverware and individual sauces. I've worked fast food and i know sometimes when one frier is getting cleaned you have to use the other that may be designated for breaded chicken, so you might have to be careful there.
The manager was very helpful and aware of gluten issues. He offered to clean a cutting board to cut a chicken breast to add to a side salad for each of my daughters with celiac disease. Gluten free dressings, frostys, potatoes, and chili. Nice to have a place to eat on a long road trip.
Wendy's isn't necessarily a gf restaurant but I have found that the staff at this particular Wendy's are understanding of the need for changing gloves and cleaning the work space. I order a Dave's triple with no bun or a bowl of chilli. I have not gotten sick and I am VERY sensitive. If you even breathe bread toward my food I get sick so that is saying a lot. ha.
We always feel safe at Wendy's but I have to say this one near the airport in Hyannis is the best one we've visited! Staff knows exactly what to do when you mention gluten allergy or celiac, and the service is fast and second to none. Like other Wendy's, lots of options!
Wendy's chili is GF and really good. Especially with added cheese, onions and hot sauce. I ask when they last changed their fryer oil and if recent I'll order fries. The fries are supposed to be in a dedicated fryer but don't always trust them. I've had good luck and the fries are excellent. Otherwise I'll order a baked potato with the chili. Wish they had more GF options but this has the most of all the fast food drive through places that I've found.
The Cleveland Wendy's is the best place around for celiac people. They are caring and knowledgeable about cross contamination best practices. Potatoes, fries, bunless burgers, salads, chili, frost, grilled chicken and more. They change gloves and have a wonderful attitude. Love this place! We eat here once a week.
