We've had a few "Wild Buffalo Wings" restaurants open up here in Denver recently. I called thier home office & was told that out of their 12 sauces only 2 were NOT gluten-free (Teriyaki & Thai). They also said that the wings are not breaded & are cooked separately.

Has anyone had a good or bad experience with Wild Buffalo Wings restaurants ?

I go the Buffalo Wild Wings here in Las Vegas all the time! (I'm originally from Ohio, so I have always been hooked)

When I eat there, I usually get the bacon cheddar burger (no bun) and hot sauce on the side (spicy garlic).

I have heard their chicken cesar salad is gluten-free, but I do not know yet!....Man, I miss those wings!!!!

There's another wing place in Denver that I got excited about at first b/c they said they fried their wings in separate oil, but then I found out that they move their oil "down the line" at night, so the wing's oil was once upon a time "breaded item's" oil. I chanced it anyway and ate them and boy did I react!

However, I did call Wing Stop today and they said that they only fry two items, wings and fries, and they fry them separately. Even if they didn't, they'd be safe. Plus the wings aren't floured. :-)

I emailed BW3's about a month ago. No reply. If anyone gets a reply back could you post it to this board so we could all see. I miss wings almost as much as I miss beer. :blink:

The wings at BWW are gluten-free except the Thai and Teriyaki.

Don't they fry their wings?

Or are they cooked in the oven?

Let us know Richard....

The regular unbreaded wings are deep fried in their own separate fryer. Sauces are not added until after frying, otherwise the sauces would be fried off. As always, check at each individual place, but I'd be surprised if they didn't all do it this way.

Hi everyone - I wrote to the company and got the following response. I thanked them for the detail - seems like many restaurants wouldn't take the time to send such a thorough response.

Thank you for contacting us concerning gluten in our menu items. Marzetti
produces all our dressings and sauces and cannot guarantee that any of the
Buffalo Wild Wing dressings or sauces are "gluten free". All of these
products contain distilled vinegar, which is fermented from ethyl alcohol,
which can be derived from wheat. Therefore distilled vinegar may contain
trace amounts of gluten. For the most part, this trace amount is
inconsequential, but patients with celiac sprue may be concerned. The Thai
wing sauce and Teriyaki sauce contain wheat from soy sauce in addition to
distilled vinegar.

As far as other menu items, we can tell you that our chili is gluten free.
Our bone-in wings and naked tenders should be safe to order, but we suggest
you request the sauce on the side as the breaded boneless wings are spun in
same sauce container as regular wings. You may want to check with the
kitchen manager about what items are grilled on the same surface as some of
our breaded items.

We wish you all the best!

Your Friends at Buffalo Wild Wings

A friend of ours works at a BWW and wanted to know if he could bring us some food home one day. I was unsure, but I will print this response and share it with him. At least he will now be able to answer questions for their customers when he is asked.

I'm constantly on the lookout for new restaurants that have gluten-free options for newly diagnosed hubby. We've never been to Buffalo Wild Wings, but if they offer gluten-free options, we could become good customers.

Thanks!

I've actually eaten there several times with no issues. Outside of two sauces which both contained soy sauce all the sauces were gluten free. I was also told the wings and the fries were cooked in dedicated fryers, obviously check with your local one but their menu lists allergins as well. Potato ROUNDS (there's another kind of potato, so make sure its the rounds) are also gluten free. I get the naked wings and the honey bbq sauce on the side.

Obviously, like with any restaurant, you have to be aware of the possibility of cross contamination but some places are more accommodating than others

My boyfriend and I have eaten there almost once a week for the past 6 or 7 months. I haven't ever had any problems with the food I eat from there. Now, the options are definitely limited, but you can make a meal out of it! I emailed them a little while back and they were kind enough to email me a list of their gluten free products. -- Actually, it is the allergen listing, but it shows specifically all the products that are gluten free. I don't have the email anymore, otherwise I would post it here, but they got back to me within a few hours when I emailed them.

My Buffalo Wild Wings does have dedicated fryers for all the items I eat, so I think that is important to check on before you eat there. Some stores may have different kitchens or policies.

Anyway, here is a list of the things that are currently on their gluten free list (and again make sure they have dedicated fryers!):

Traditional Chicken Wings (make sure fryer is dedicated to just the traditional wings)
Bleu Cheese Dressing
Ranch Dressing
SW Ranch Dressing
Sweet BBQ Wing Sauce
Miled Wing Sauce
Parmesan Garlic Wing Sauce
Medium Wing Sauce
Honey BBQ Wing Sauce
Honey Mustard Diping Sauce
Spicy Garlic Wing Sauce
Caribbean Jerk Wing Sauce
Hot Wing Sauce
Hot BBQ Wing Sauce
Mango Habanero Wing Sauce
Wild Wing Sauce
Blazin Wing Sauce
SW Chipotle
Caesar Dressing
BBQ Ranch Dressing
Marinara Sauce
Queso Cheese Sauce
Salsa
Celery
Naked Tenders With Seasoning
French Fries (the regular ones)
Buffalo Chips
Buffalo Chips with Cheese
Coleslaw
Tortilla Chips
Salsa
Ice cream with chocolate sauce
Kids meal traditional wings
Kids meal naked tenders

So again, as long as they have dedicated fryers and you let your server know you have a gluten issue, I think it's completely okay to eat there. Like I said, we've been there a TON and I'm super sensitive and I've never gotten sick from eating there. I usually always get the 4 piece naked tenders with regular fries or buffalo chips. Then for sauces I get a side of ranch and a side of honey bbq. It's nice to be able to have a normal meal sometimes! :o)

IT IS NOT SAFE TO EAT THERE AT ALL.


Where did you get this from? Their traditional wings are naked and done in dedicated fryers. All of their sauces except two are gluten-free.

Of course there's always a chance of CC, but there are in fact things we can eat there.
