Here's the email I got in response to "the" question at McAlister's Deli in Slidell, Louisiana. I wish there were more veggie options, but at least there ARE options. Also, I love the personal message instead of the form letter "we can not guarantee...." blah, blah, blah answer we usually hear.

Hi my name is Stacy Weaver. I'm the General Manager here at McAlister's Deli in Slidell. I am glad for your email. I have some good news and bad news for you. None of our soups are gluten free. However, we do have many options. Here is a list of the items that are gluten free at McAlister's Deli:
  • Chicken strips
  • all cheeses
  • all salad dressings
  • steamed broccoli and carrots
  • fruit salad
  • potato salad
  • mashed potatoes (without gravy)
  • plain spud (you could add chicken)
  • our land o lakes butter
  • smoked turkey
  • roast beef
  • corned beef
  • chicken salad
  • tuna salad
  • ham
  • bacon
  • garden or Caesar salad (without croutons)
I hope this helps and you come in and see us a lot. : )

Thank you, Stacy

I looked at their website and apparently it is only their *Fajita* chicken strips that are gluten-free. They also note that their grilled chicken breast is NOT gluten-free due to the seasonings used. I would bear that in mind if you add chicken to a plain potato per this manager's suggestion. The website also lists Southwestern Corn Soup as gluten-free [is that like chili? if so you could have a plain baked potato with chili on top a' la Wendy's].

I haven't been to McA's for awhile. Maybe soon--my wife likes this place.
