The staff knew about celiac and the gluten free fryer right away. The food was delicious!

So I am giving it four stars because you really only have one option if you are celiac (no designated fryer for bone-in wings or fries). the naked tenders. But you can get any sauce minus two. That being said, the chicken was cooked to perfection and my waiter was AMAZING. He brought my meal out separate as well as all of the dipping sauces I asked for. I normally would not suggest a place with so few of options but I felt so taken care of. If you are gluten intolerant you have tons of options.

Do have an allergen menu I'm not sure what went wrong, I asked our server to let the kitchen know I was GF but I still left sick. I ordered plain grilled chicken strips but they tasted like they had lemon pepper seasoning on them so perhaps they were cooked on a shared surface.

Ordered naked tenders, medium sauce, salad with no croutons or bread, ranch, celery sticks with blue cheese dip. Glutened today with swelling, joint pain and facial numbness etc... Was told the area will be wiped clean for preparation so had high hopes.

The manager told me they have specific friers for the bone in wings and the fries so both are safe. Cider to drink too. Great meal!

Staff was knowledgeable and able to accommodate GF items. I ordered the bone-in wings with carrots/celery. Plenty of flavors to pick from. I did not have any issues. Be sure to speak with your server and ask questions to ensure their practices haven’t changed. They explained they label your food and make an announcement in the kitchen when an allergy order occurs.

Only item I felt safe with was Naked Tenders. It was literally a grilled chicken breast cut into 4 pieces. Not seasoned at all but many sauces to choose from that are GF. Brought my own chips. Staff was GREAT tho, brought mine out separate. Meal was very average but safe.

Pretty much nothing available. Staff told me the fries would be gluten free - turned out they share the same fryer as everything else. I'd go somewhere else.

I eat here regularly and have never had a reaction. The original wings are all fried in a dedicated fryer and only 3 of the sauces aren’t gluten free. Lots of options and open late, definitely recommend.

Never gotten sick from here before. I don’t mind the fact that we can only get bone-in wings! It would be cool if they made some gluten free boneless wings though!!

Almost no options. Everything is fried in the same oil. Naked tenders are only option. Staff very friendly, just limited choices.

As soon as I told the waitress I have celiac disease she brought the manager to the table. They had a booklet that identified the allergens in the items on their menu. If you order the traditional wings, it is fried in a dedicated fryer. Stevie, the manager, made sure my order was handled properly and my order came out with a purple sticker to signify GF. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and I had no bad reactions. AAAA++++++. Thank you Buffalo Wild Wings!!

No options. You’d think wing place could pull of GF but Buffalo Wild Wings has no desire to do so.

The bone in wings are GF, and a lot of sides. I am not celiac but am sensitive, and I can eat fine at Buffalo Wild Wings

The staff was not aware that other locations will bake the wings for you so you don’t get cross-contamination, the manager came over and spoke to me and they went ahead and baked the wings for me.

I have gotten sick every time I have eaten there. A friend of mine worked in the kitchen there and she said it was because everything cross-contaminated and there was no way to avoid it with how they prepped the food.

I asked for a gluten free menu. Took 3 of them 5 minutes to find one. She handed it to me and just stood there. I said I would like to have a table. She put me at a table and nobody bothered coming back. After 20 minutes I got up and left.

The bartender/server Nathan was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our requests. They have a completely separate fryer that they use for GF requests. Great nachos!

I had to sift through the allergen list. There were very few options and all the salads had gluten and they couldn't give me an answer on a modification to made a salad gluten free. I chose something that was indicated as wheat free and gluten free...it was not. Learned after the fact they do not have a designated fryer.

This place is just awesome. It has been my go to restaurant when I want to eat out and I know I won't get sick. They can make a lot of things GF but my favorite items are the nachos and traditional wings. There are only a few sauces that are not GF but most of them are safe. They have a dedicated fryer and the staff is very knowledgeable. They mark every GF item when it comes out of the kitchen with a purple sticker, so look for the sticker to confirm your meal is GF.

The wings are good and many of the sauces are gluten free. But the fryers are shared and the ‘spinners’ that they use for saucing the wings are shared. You have to ask for your wings to be dry and the sauce on the side. There is still some risk from the shared fryer but I haven’t had a symptom.

Don’t even bother. The staff had no idea what gluten was and had no accommodations for Celiac. I was with a group and ended up only eating carrots and celery

Enjoy watching the game with friends. They have traditional wings which are supposed to be gluten free as well as several ciders or liquors that are gluten free.

I ordered naked tenders and buffalo chips(potatoes I was told) and mentioned I was Celiac and if that was gf. The bartender said yes and put in the order. About a half hour later my food finally comes out and As it turns out the “potatoes” were deep fried which l didn’t realize until after I ate the first one. And NO this was not a designated fryer. Also the chosen cake out on he same plate mixed in with some fries like in a basket style. So the fries(which I didn’t order and were clearly also contaminated) had allot of contact with the 2 of my 4 tenders so I ate the other two(which were boarder line undercooked) and went to google. Turns out even the grilled naked chicken tenders came from a shared grill. The staff should know when someone says CELIAC what is acceptable and what is not. Needless to say I did not finish my meal I remained at the bar to watch the rest of the game with 80% of my food on the plate in front of me for about another hour to finish the game and not one server asked how my meal was when it was obvious that I did not have a positive experience. And needless to say after the clock hit zero I hustled Home to brace for impact as the upset stomach and other symptoms had already begun. Being from buffalo New York growing up on real wings with skin and bones in a clean fryer... this place disappoints me on a big level. Find a local sports bar especially if want something to drink besides angry orchard!

As of 2017, they do not have separate grill areas. Salad would be ok but all the meats off limits . My very sensitive daughter got a bloated belly after eating here (indicating cross contamination) to a grilled chicken breast due to shared grill

Very easy to find out which items were safe to eat, and both adult and kids menus had good options.

I had to look up their gf menu on gfheadquarters, but was excited with all the options. Potential for cross contamination, but lots of options.

Not only did they note for me my gluten allergy for the cook, but they waited on my husband to get there to cook my naked wings. (We called in our order) They wanted to double check if it was ok to fry them in the shared fryer. (Side note, it’s not ok as cross contamination really messes me up) So they grilled them on a cleaned stove and put my sauce on the side. Also, they have a dedicated fryer for there French fries !! 👍🏻

Asked Callie a ton of questions when family ordered carry out. She was fantastic about getting answers to my questions. Found that I could have naked chicken tenders with (or without) seasoning and their veggie (cole) slaw without reaction. I found the seasoning to be a bit saltier than my taste but otherwise fine. I tried the sweet BBQ and garlic Parmesan sauces. All but 3?? sauces are gf according to their website. I initially found menu online with wheat/gluten and other allergen columns noted with all their foods listed before entering restaurant. In asking questions, I learned that frier is shared (not dedicated), therefore fries come in contact with wheat breaded items and not gluten free once fried. Happy to have another gf food option in this town!

2 Stars just because the staff isn’t very knowledgeable about their gluten free options (while severely limited) there are some. Namely, their traditional wings, just have to check the sauces but their buffalo, mild and hot are all safe. Their allergen menu is very well marked.
