I enjoy going here. It’s nice they have gluten free bread for their sandwiches. I don’t know that they take great precautions but I haven’t gotten sick here before.

A go-to spot that is safe. The only caveat is that recently staff does not seem to be as well trained on cross contamination as they previously were. Westside does better than east- generally speaking

Spoke to the manager on duty. They had no idea how to verify what is and isn’t gluten free. They did not know how to notify the kitchen of an allergy. My family enjoyed their meal. I decided not to eat tonight.

Spuds are really good and large! Ask if they can use some of the fresh ingredients from the back to avoid cross contamination. Gluten free items are marked on the menu. They offer gluten free bread just make sure to ask for it. Great place with good food!

Amazing service! The manager came out to take our order after we emphasized we had celiac disease. She also went back to make the entire order herself in a separate area to ensure it was celiac safe. Some of the kindest mostt careful people. I appreciated how safe they were for my girls and myself.

Staff was not trained on how to handle gluten sensitivities, so when I asked them to change gloves they didn’t understand why it was important. I was also given food on a dirty plate and I was impacted by cross contamination.

I ordered a King Club on glutes free bread with fruit cup for my side. I let them know about my wheat allergy and they tagged my order with "allergy". I looked at my receipt and it was listed on the kitchen's copy. My sandwich looked and tasted amazing!! The gluten free bread was great and even the fruit was flavorful. The sandwich was so big I ate it over a two day period and didn't have any reaction or pain! Highly recommend!

I’ve always been hesitant to order anything at McA’s besides the baked potatoes. But after placing our order, we were told they’d run out of potatoes due to a bus. They offered a refund or to substitute a sandwich for the potatoes. I hesitantly agreed to a sandwich on gluten free bread, and the employee assured me they’d change gloves and everything. Honestly, much to my surprise, I did not get sick afterwards and—bonus—my BLT&A sandwich was really tasty. I’m glad to have given them a shot.

We played it safe with baked potatoes. All was good. The sandwiches can be made with gluten free bread but we were unsure which ones were gluten free. It’s a nice place for salads, sandwiches and loaded baked potatoes with different options.

Newer location with indoor and outdoor (both covered & uncovered) seating. Offer GF bread. The BLTA is a good choice. Both nachos are legal as long as you omit chili. Top with grilled chicken or the ham are both good substitutes. Most of the potatoes are legal, except for the one with beefsteak.

They had gluten free bread, although it was not listed on the menu, and a gluten free soup option. Their potatoes are also gluten free and the bacon and cheese was delicious even by itself!

I order the Italian on Gluten Free bread. I also get the potato salad and a pickle. In the 6 years I’ve been eating here I only had one reaction and they were EXTREMELY busy that day. I always tell them It is for a Gluten Allergy before I order and then ask them to let the cooks in the back know. They are very careful.

Served by the General Manager. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Made sure to label everything as an allergy. Spoke to kitchen staff.
