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!

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.
