Chick-Fil-A will be opening a new restaurant on my side of town. I heard there are gluten-free options available. What has been your experience with Chick-Fil-A?

First, we always ask to talk to a shift Manager, to explain our "severe allergy" ( I know ... I know...Celiac is not an allergy!) and ask them to change their gloves and cook fresh fries and not to have the food handled on the line where the prep the sandwiches.

We enjoy the fries (cooked seperatly), the ice cream, and the grilled chicken patty or grilled nuggest (good in the polynesian sauce) We also do the side salads and coleslaw and fresh fruit cup. If you go online, they have a list.

I just always ask upfront for a manager. The one by our house is good, and we have eaten at different ones in different cities and states. Every once in a while we do get CC, but for the most part we do good (or we wouldn't go back)

Enjoy!

The fries are ALWAYS cooked separately.

Sorry, I didn't mean that the fries weren't cooked seperarately, or that I asked them to cook them seperaretely, I was just stating that they were seperate. They use a pressure cooker for their breaded chicken, so there is never a cross contact with their fries. Their fries are great! And Safe.

Here is the list of their gluten free food.

I usually order the chargrilled chicken garden salad. I have asked the managers(of the three I eat at) and they tell me the salads either have a seperate room or station. I don't eat out much, but this is usually safe for me. Enjoy!

Running errands, we stopped in today.

It was too hot to eat heavy, but I had the six piece grilled chic nuggets and the carrot salad. Both were good and not too much on a hot day.

We go to Chick Fil-A more than we should probably. Our local one's owner has celiac. She also works there. She tells me what my daughter can and can't have. She told me that the grilled nuggets kids meal was so safe that I could go through a drive through and not have to explain everything. They use seperate tongs to get out the nuggets and not gloves. Maybe it was just hers since she is celiac but I am so thankful to have a drive-thru to be able to go to!

I eat at Chick-fil-a frequently and never have issues. I get the fries, the grilled nuggets, the honey roasted bbq sauce, the side or grilled salad, fruit cups, and ice dream cups. Sometimes in the mornings I get an egg and bacon with hashbrowns.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • 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.
