I knew a previous manager here and I have ordered here. The safe things here are their grilled chicken and grilled chicken salad and some dressings. You can see the ingredients in their website to find a safe dressing/sauce. They do not have a dedicated GF workspace so there's risk of cross contamination. There is NOT a dedicated GF fryer, so fried are cross contaminated. I have ordered a salad here before and they put bread on it when I told them not to.

Unfortunately so people in the reviews do not understand cross contamination. Picking off croutons still contaminated food. Nothing to order but slushees and burgers with no bun.

Due to COVID zaxbys is not accommodating gf fried chicken options. They do not have a separate fryer. It is what it is.

I don't know why some of these people reviews insist there is nothing available. The real chicken wings have a dedicated fryer and are gluten free. The french fries also have a separate fryer. They have also got grilled or blackened chicken that are gluten free which you could get bunless or on a salad hold the toast hold the fried onions. Not perfect but much more choices that most fast food companys. They have an allergy menu but it doesn't break down all the I ingredients so a salad that comes with toast and fried onions says it contains wheat. But corporate can give you better information.

Not sure why the poster with celiac said they love their wings and torch sauce both of which come with a gluten/wheat warning. Nothing safe here except plain salad.

This is one of the few Zaxby’s that you can order the chicken finger plate with grilled chicken. My favorite is this combo with their awesome chips and Tongue Torch sauce on the side to dip the chicken in. Been eating this or their wings for many months with no issues.

We went to the one in Osage Beach, MO and had a great experience. I had already called to talk to the Manager to make sure it was safe. You just tell the cashier that it needs to be Gluten free. Our daughter has Celiac so she could still get a kids meal with chicken tenders (non breaded) that they put in dedicated GF deep fryer. They also put the fries in the same dedicated fryer. The kids meals usually come with a Goldfish brand type cookie and they were educated enough to know not to put one in her kiddie bag which was amazing. The cashier tells the cook it all needs to be gluten free, they change gloves and use the dedicated GF fryer for all of her stuff. She loved it and we went back 2 days in a row in our vacation since we knew it was safe! No issues with cross contamination and she didn't get sick.

Traditional wings and fries are GF. As well as many of their sauces. Have good GF salad options (w/o toast or croutons).

Any of the grilled chicken salads without the toast (& fried onion if it’s on there) are safe. I have eaten here several times and haven’t gotten sick.

Talked to the manager about gluten free as I have celiac and she explained they have a separate fryer/area of the kitchen and she personally made my chicken & fries separately than the rest. Great food and I didn't get sick (I get sick from the slightest bit of cross contamination.)

Was so happy when I saw the other review about gluten free chicken strips. They have them with a dedicated fryer for them and the fries. The woman at the counter even made sure they changed gloves in the back. So happy they had them and hope they do again when I come back next year for vacation.

So, I have eaten at Zaxby’s a number of times, and unfortunately get about the same thing every time....BBQ Traditional wings. These are safe as long as you make sure they are fresh (will take about 10-15 minutes), and they use a clean bowl when coating their wings. Fresh wings are cooked in their own fryer; however, if you do not tell them, they will reheat pre-made wings in the same fryers that they do all their breaded foods. I have not yet visited a Zaxby’s that was not accommodating.

Only GF food is a Caesar salad without Caesar chicken or toast or 1 type of wings. Basically just got lettuce with a sparse amount of cheese and mayonnaise. Did not get sick but I do not recommend Zaxbys for gluten free eaters.

Literally the only place in Elkin that is gluten free on the app lol. I stopped by and got a grilled chicken caesar salad, no crutons. Talked to the manager and she had no problem with changing gloves before making my food. She actually made my food herself. Everyone was extremely nice. I have Celiac and I didn't get sick.

Very misleading to say gluten free. I have been diagnosed with celiac and it's very difficult if not impossible to find a place that's actually gluten free. if something is cooked on the same surface or in the same oil, pan, or even the same area it can be contaminated and be just as bad. if you read their list it has nothing that is completely gluten free. it was either contaminated at the restaurant or at the factor somewhere. the only thing that's 100 percent gluten free is the side salad

Ask for Allergen List. I ask if fries could be fried separately and the manager made it happen! I had a grilled chicken sandwich without the bun and crinkle fries. My favorite find was that their famous Zax sauce is also gf. Good for a quick, cheap gluten free meal!

No stars, if I could. A gluten disaster. No designated fryer for fries. Wings are your best option, but wouldn't trust it for cross contamination with breaded chicken.

Website says fries are GF. Before ordering I double checked with the manager and he said, "That's a misprint on the website. The fries are in the same oils as fried items". Either this store wasn't abiding rules or website is a misprint. ALWAYS ASK!!

Salad, chicken, and fries are all gluten free. Ask for your salad with grilled chicken and without croutons. Staff didn't know anything about gluten free or even what it was. No gluten free menu in store, but has online allergen info.
