Staff was knowledgeable and changed their gloves. Lobby and dining room was REALLY nasty though! Trash all over the floor, dirty table, floor didn’t like like it had ever been vacuumed or mopped.

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.

I ordered just two hamburger patties, no bun. Asked them to change gloves. Also got a baked potato with sour cream (in separate packaging). They accommodated my request (with an almost eye roll from the cashier), but it still made me very nauseated several hours later. I am very sensitive to cross contamination, though. Not sure where the contamination came in at. I don’t usually eat fast food ever but wanted to try it to see if it could be an option in a pinch. Would not recommend it for celiacs.

Wendy's doesn't have a ton of gluten-free options- particularly if you're celiac- but what it has is fine. Chili, baked potatoes, and frosties are all gluten-free, and the way they are prepared presents low to no risk of cross-contamination even if the staff doesn't take any direct steps. I frequently get all three from this location, and haven't had any issues. Salads are trickier; I've not gotten one from from Wendy's, but it seems possible to order them in such a way that they'd be GF.

There are no GF sandwich options. Don't bother.

This was my first time at Wendy’s since my diagnosis. The cashier said they do NOT have a dedicated fryer just for fries. I’d read online that the Wendy’s baked potato and the chili are generally safe. I was too nervous about cross contamination to try a chicken salad, for fear that they’d cut the chicken on the same board as they cut the breaded chicken (but that may be an unfounded worry). Then I found a site online that said the taco salad is safe with no modifications needed. So I tried it out. It seemed pretty safe because most things were prepackaged except the chili. The salad came with chips, two packs of sour cream, prepackaged salad with tomatoes and cheese, prepackaged salsa, and warm chili. Overall the salad was fairly good and surprisingly filling. Would I go here again? Yes. Would I come often? No, the choices are pretty limited and there’s not a convenient gluten free menu. But it’s great when the whole family is on the road and needs a quick meal.
