We went at a weird time with hopes that it wouldn’t be busy. They had just cleaned the grill when we walked in. The grill they used is further from the gluten items (waffles, toaster, etc). My son was able to safely eat a hash brown bowl with sausage. We weren’t sure about the ketchup since some have changed their recipe or the way they make it, so he didn’t have any this time. We will definitely take some with us next time!! I would cautiously recommend this Waffle House during less busy times.

I cant speak for anyone who works there, but the staff when I went was incredible and cleaned the cook surface, etc before cooking our food. They were super sweet and didn’t make it seem like an inconvenience. I got the breakfast combo with scrambled eggs, sausage and hashbrowns and had then hold the toast.

We were on a very long drive back from the eclipse and my bf loves Waffle House. I was not expecting to order anything, but our server, Tonya, was very knowledgeable about allergies as she has one herself. She was able to explain how everything was cooked in the back and gave recommendations on what I could eat. The chicken is cooked in a separate area from floured surfaces, and the hash browns are also separate from the pancake area, but they are on a shared burner. She explained that they always keep the hash browns on one side though. I got a chicken hash-brown bowl and it was pretty tasty.

There’s mostly gluten free options available, I had to google and see beforehand; the workers didn’t seem to understand but were accommodating and cooked my food on a separate grill with clean utensils, after I had to explain, then she understood and was very apologetic and remade my food. Honestly 50-50 on if you’ll get glutened depending on who is working and willing to clean and separate your food. I enjoyed my food, and the cook specifically was great.

Food is decent and they did well at keeping things separate. I did not get sick and I'm very sensitive. They don't have specific gluten free items though so I would still with the hashbrown bowls.

Yes they brought out the order with toast but then took it back when they realized the mistake and gave me a clean plate and food. A good Waffle House keeps the grill really clean.

Unfortunately no gluten free waffles but that didn't stop the lack of options beyond the usual "salad" most fast food places offer.

I had a hash brown bowl with bacon and egg and it was delicious. There are a range of has brown bowls, and off the menu they can make steaks, pork chops or an omelette.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. They also have an online allergen menu.

Waffle House is VERY limited on gluten free options and would not work at all for those with Celiac or allergies. The oil that they use for everything has gluten in it. I'm only mildly intolerant to gluten and can tolerate very small amounts.

That said, our waitress and the cook went out of their way to help me find the best option. The cook was very knowledgeable and offered to make me an old fashioned omelet (not a fluffy omlet) that only needed a tiny bit of oil. It was yummy and I was very appreciative of their kindness and suggestions!

Great place, order no bread, state it's an allergy. They always take great care of me. I eat there weekly! Eggs are fresh, hashbrowns, bacon. No GF menu but as long as avoid bread and waffles, you are set!

I've been able to avoid any issues just by sticking with the hash brown bowl or breakfast items (minus toast or waffles). I've not had any issues here so far when I've eaten here.

Waffle house does not have dedicated gluten free options, but they do have items that are naturally gluten free. In the past when I have ordered any meal that comes with toast, they will still put it on my plate even when I've asked them not to. I have instead started ordering the breakfast hashbrown bowls which do not come with toast. I'm sure there are no cross contamination precautions so you take a chance eating here.

I usually have 3 scrambled eggs, hashbrown, and bacon. I have Celiac disease and am now gluten free. Waffle house uses quaker grits which do contain gluten. I believe the cheese is also a danger. After eating a ham and cheese omelet I was sick. I did eat a half slice of toast with it, and that was a no no.

Fast cheap food thats good for the price. They don't have a gluten free menu but our servers are always good about working with me to alter a meal that fits me. For example usually I either upgrade my hashbrowns or and an extra order in place of the side of toast. Very friendly staff!

*** Please write honest reviews so others have up to date information on choices*** Always gluten friendly, they cook my food all on the meat grill, you have to request some items from the back because all of the bread is kept in close proximity to gf items and in a hurry bread crumbs will be dropped into those items. You will have to watch your cook prepare your food because some cooks don't pay attention but for the most part they are good. I've only gotten sick twice but from the same cook who doesn't pay any attention to cc. I sometimes buy a gf bun from culvers next door and order plain cheese steak and put it on the gf bun which is good.

Our waitress, Ashley, was awesome today! I ordered scrambled eggs with cheese, grits and bacon. I told her I have Celiac and get very sick. I asked her to have them change gloves and use a clean pan and utensils. I believe they did. I am writing this about 5 hours later so would have gotten sick by now if there was gluten and i still feel great! I would return and recommend them!

All food is cooked on a shared surface with bread and pancakes, using shared utensils. Nothing on the menu should be considered safe for someone with high gluten sensitivity. Someone only mildly sensitive should be fine.

Our waitress had celiac, so she was incredibly helpful. She made sure the cooks wore fresh gloves while preparing my son's food. They also made his plate first to ensure there was no cross-contamination. We appreciated the extra consideration they gave.

I have grilled chicken breast, scrambled eggs & hashbrowns for breakfast. I am never bothered with gluten. I also put honey on my chicken & picante sauce on my hashbrowns & eggs. I ask for sliced tomatoes instead of the toast. I have also had the hamburger steak with the same above sides. I always eat at the Raymond Hill Rd Waffle House at Sharpsburg, Ga. It's the best of any I have been too. The first shift on Wed thru Sun. there just can't be beat.

the employees were incredible. They came to me with the grits package that showed they may contain wheat. Then another looked up hashbrowns on her phone and showed me that they could contain wheat. It was a generic site not WH'S so I told her I had already looked it up and WH'S are GF. Then the manager came by and said she had called the corporate office to check on the grits and hashbrowns. they are both gluten-free but they can't guarantee they aren't cross contaminated. I have never experienced that level of concern in any restaurant!
