Most Buffalo Wild Wings have a separate fryer for fries and traditional wings, which are gluten free. I called and spoke with the manager to make sure, since two of us have celiac. He told me that this location puts all appetizers, including breaded ones, in the same fryer and that the usually safe traditional wings are in the same fryer as other breaded products. Bottom line, if you are celiac or particularly sensitive, do NOT go to this location!

I was excited to bring my son here, he has celiac disease. They said they had a dedicated fryer and that they could make the traditional wings and French fries gluten free. He used mild sauce which was listed as gluten free. Unfortunately something must’ve had gluten as he got sick as soon as he got home.

Ordered carry out from Bowling Green location while traveling for soccer tourney. Placed carry out order explaining allergy. Reiterated allergy concerns in person. Waited a full hour to be provided the incorrect order and allergy was never noted on the receipt. Did not know I was provided the wrong order until back at hotel. The order was not gluten free and manager didn’t understand the severity of allergic reactions. Side note. Watched same manager yell at children for playing video games. Very unprofessional. The employees seemed miserable.

Staff did not know what was gluten free, handed me a huge allergy guide book which was great, but there was little options. I played it safe and just had sweet potato fries which were said to be GF, thats the worst ive ever been cross contaminated. Never going there again!!

I got grilled tenders here. It was pretty good for grilled chicken. I got fries too. I found online a section when i googled what items were GF. A lot of the sauces were good. I miss fried foods, but the grilled tenders were as good as grilled chicken gets.

Their traditional wings and most of the sauces are gluten free. So is their ranch! I've had their tator tots and they were fine as well. Please note that I do not have issues with cross contamination so I can't speak on that issue.

Ordered nachos because they were corn but didn't realize that they made them in house and they do not have a dedicated fryer. Definitely had a reaction. Extremely limited salad options. Almost everything fried in the same fryers. Be very careful.

Some wings sauces are GF but the server needs to check for you since there is no GF menu. Wife is pretty sensitive to gluten and we have eaten here dozens of times, so confidence is high and it is our go-to for wings.

They have a dedicated GF fryer, but did there was still a risk of cross-contamination. When I called in my order the girl on the phone checked with someone else to make sure she was flagging it correctly, and the items I asked for GF came out marked with purple stickers.

Got traditional wings with Garlic Parmesan sauce (most of the sauce are gluten free) and fries, and didn't have any major reactions afterward.

Was super excited to try out the Traditional wings & sauces after reading the online allergy menu. After placing an order for pick up I received a phone call explaining that while the items that I ordered were gluten-free they’re not cooked in a designated gf fryer. Super disappointed about the miscommunication & false hope.

We went here based on a review from 10 months ago that said there was a dedicated fryer for traditional wings/fries. Sad to say that is gone. The asst manager was friendly and helpful but without the dedicated fryer the appeal went away quick for someone with celiacs who was excited for fried wings and fries.

Food was good. Consistent with what we have experienced at other BWW locations across the south. Unfortunately they skimped on the veggies. Service was very slow considering only two folks were there when we arrived at 5:15. Due to Covid the menu was digital and after taking a few short minutes to review it, we sat for a good ten minutes for her to come take our order. Waitresses were standing around talking at the bar and we finally stopped the manager who was walking by to see if someone would take the order. He said that he would. We never saw the waitress again until she had a third table to assist. Even then she said nothing until she brought our food out. It was evident the manager said something to her as she never once looked me in the eye. Regardless, the food was good, hot and most importantly I didn’t get sick! Took away a star for the service. Brad is the manager and seemed eager to please as he stopped by at the end of the meal to check in with us.

The fries and traditional wings are fried in a shared fryer with their battered chicken and other non gluten-free items so they aren’t celiac safe. One salad was listed as gluten free but when I asked if the chicken could be grilled on a piece of foil they said they have no foil available. Ended up getting the honey bbq salad with no chicken.

Awful. We ordered the wings and I was food poisoned here. We ended up going to an Urgent Care the next morning because I couldn’t stop throwing up. At the time, I thought that they had great gluten free options so I was going to leave a good review. But with having to get a shot due to the food poisoning here, they get one star. I know this app is dedicated for GF stuff, but I’d just thought that I’d warn people on here so that they don’t get sick for other reasons.

Their traditional wings are done in a dedicated gf fryer! Tara is the best and is super knowledgeable. If it’s slow they’ll also do the fries in the dedicated fryer if you ask. They put stickers on the gf boxes and toss the wing in separate baskets to avoid cross contamination. Do not eat the nachos even though they say gf, they can be cross contaminated.

So so delicious. Lots of gf sauce options.

Not all BWW restaurants have a dedicated fryer but this one does. They will fry the traditional wings and fries in the dedicated fryer then mark the box with a purple sticker for “allergy.” Almost all of the wing sauce and dry rubs are gluten free, clearly marked on the nutrition section of the website.

The fries remind me of McDonald’s and the wings are a good size. Overall, generous quantity and good quality.

I ordered traditional chicken wings and French fries. When telling the server my order I made sure to tell them I had celiac and while they do not have a dedicated fryer, she ensured me they would be extremely careful to not use any gluten products near my food while making it and would change their gloves. After eating the food, I had none of my regular Celiac symptoms!

I ordered traditional chicken wings and French fries. It was delicious!

Their traditional wings and fries are my go to foods with them. I always get mild sauce, carrots, and celery.

They have a separate fryolator for celiacs, but you have to ask for it. The option isn’t listed anywhere and it’s never been offered to me. The staff are spotty on their knowledge of what is and isn’t GF, but the corporate website is very informative and lists all of the safe options. They always have several options for safe drinks.

My wife is celiac and we had heard from a friend who is also celiac that this BWW does an excellent job. They were right. We told our server and a manager came out to discuss things with us. Their traditional wings have their own deep fryer that is a gluten free fryer. They were also able to drop fries in that fryer, since it wasn’t that busy (note: they dropped the fries first, without the wings, so those came out early like an appetizer). So my wife and I split a basket of fries and 20 wings. The staff was helpful and cognizant off cross contamination. If you’re celiac and craving wings, this is a great place to go.

Obviously as a Celiac you can’t eat or expect a fried chicken wing joint to have gluten free oil. The management, servers and cooks will take special preparation/instruction and bake your wings. Will not be as crisp but still very good. FYI, it will take a bit longer so put in order before the rest of the orders. A few gluten free options for sauces. I appreciate that they will accommodate as much as they can!!

I love Buffalo Wild Wings, my favorite place to get wings actually! Now, there is cross contamination, but the traditional chicken wings are naturally gluten free, minus the cross contamination. I normally get the Sweet BBQ traditional wings and fries, along with ranch. I’ve never had a problem at any of the establishments, and continue to eat there whenever I can!

A manager came by right away when I asked our server about gluten free items. He brought out a binder of ingredients in each dish and answered my questions. The traditional wings are fried in a separate fryer than breaded items and most sauces are GF. I was able to eat fries too without having a reaction! Wonderful service that exceeded my expectations.
