I'm pretty sure they are fried with the onion rings, and someone told me that they have a coating on them that contains gluten. It stinks, too, because I LOVE their french fries.

Come on folks, let's at least pay attention to what the company says. The fries do NOT have a wheat coating. Check put the ingredients. They are definitely fried in a dedicated fryer separate from the onion rings. However, as with any fast food place, watch out for CC.

Richard - we do, but sometimes we hear things on here or other gluten free boards or friends, and we trust that it's true. I'm glad to see I'm wrong about the coating, but I've yet to see dedicated fries fryer, when BK also serves onion rings. Believe you me, I like BK SO much better than McD and would prefer to go there! So perhaps some do, but mine around my area don't. :(

You have to wonder how diligent, if at all, many of these restaurants follow their own stated policies. When I ask the workers, what items are gluten free, or if they have a list, they look at you like you are speaking in tongues. If they are this unaware, how can they be keeping things in separate cookers, if they don't understand why? I asked at several places if they use separate cookers, and the reply was "why should we, we just use the one that is empty".

If a manager in the know, is not policing employees,much less educating them, then doubt the policies are being followed.

I am sure it varies widely from franchise to franchise, and within shifts.

Exactly why I am hesitant to eat out at fast food places... the workers always look at you like you are speaking a foreign language..or in tongues... loved that...

I haven't been back there since going gluten-free. The last time I ate at Burger King, I had a big fat onion ring mixed in with my fries. I thought, "Yay, I love their onion rings!" If that happened now, I'd cry. I would be terrified of CC no matter how many dedicated fryers they have.

When I worked at Burger King, they did not have a designated fryer. Also, the onion rings are placed directly next to the fries, which is why many people find fries in their rings and rings in their fries. The only thing that had a truly designated fryer was the fish, as no one wants their chicken smelling like fish. Sonic also says their fries are gluten free, but they fry them with the onion rings as well as tater tots. I have never found a location that has a designated fryer. I also find it interesting that Wendys FINALLY took fries of their gluten free options, as I had yet to find one with a designated fryer either.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
