Wendy's, I get their baked potato and chili.
Some places you can ask for no bun (remember to think of the stuff that goes on the food item though) and tell them why no bun so they use new gloves and don't CC.
I personally don't really eat out at fast food places anymore because I miss the hamburger bun. I've tried the low carb burger at Carl's and In N Out protien style burger it just isn't the same.
I get In N Out's french fries though and their shake occationally.

Do you avoid fast food completely? Today we went to Burger King and I had NO idea what to get for my daughter.
Burger King? McDonalds? Arbys? Wendys?
I avoid most of them unless I have other options: (Not just for gluten reasons mainly for health reasons)
I've never been to Burger King with my daughter sincd Dx but we have done McDonalds (grilled chicken breast and side of fruit) in a happy meal bag and she was fine. I use the word ALLERGY there because they seem to understand its serious when I say that.
We do occasionally go to:
Taco Bell, Chik-a-filet, Zen, Wendys and Sonic occasionally.
Taco Bell: My daughter eats their tostada
Chick-a-fliet: grilled chicken and their fries or fruit (potatoes have a separate fryer at the one I go to and the manager has Celiac Disease so I trust it)
Wendys: Baked potato and their frosty
Sonic: A salad
Zen: has a gluten free menu
I typically take my daughter to sit down restraunts though, Red Robin, Pei Wei, local places and typically we get her a cheeseburger no bun with fruit or grilled chicken breast with fruit.

I do salads from Wendy's on rare occasions. Other than that I usually don't do fast food, but thats me.

For us, Chipotle is in walking distance. I haven't gotten sick there yet, and virtually all of their foods are gluten-free. But then again, I am junkie for Tex/Mex type foods, soI could eat there everyday. They will make any combination for kids there, so if your child wants a cheese taco, they'll do it. There is an issue with gloves at some, fortunately, mine works like a line and the person touching the tortilla doesn't touch any of my other food.

Boston Market has a delicious Chopped Salad, and their mashed potatoes and gravy are gluten-free, though you have to worry about cc. They have a website with an allergen chart. My daughter always gets the kid's meal with chicken and mashed potatoes, and has been okay so far.
We haven't gone to Burger King, so don't know. They have onion rings there, so their fries probably aren't safe.

The McDonald's grilled chicken salad is not ok any longer. We too used to love them for a quick meal. The chicken is flash frozen or glazed frozen which I'm told now contains gluten. sorry.

Our best dining experience has been at Cheeseburger in Paradise but unfortunately the closest one is 2 hours away.
Chic-Fil-A Fries are good but my picky eater son won't touch the grilled chicken breast.
