As for safe fast food, I highly recommend Wendy's as long as you stop during non-peak times and the workers speak fluent English. It is very important that whoever is preparing your food be able to understand very well exactly what you are talking about. Wendy's generally has dedicated fryers for french fries, but never order them without asking first. Frostys are gluten free. You can look up on their website what is and isn't safe. If you order a baked potato, tell them not to cut it open, who knows where that knife has been and it has gotten others in the past. If you order a bunless burger, it is important to stress to them how serious your medical problem is and that they change their gloves before touching your burger and that they not use any condiments such as ketchup or mustard or allow the burger to touch any other surfaces. Some will call that paranoia, I call it avoiding explosive D on a road trip. (I've watched them dip a knife into the mustard and slather it on a bun. No thanks putting that on my burger.)
Maybe someone more familiar with the Florida area will have more local suggestions for you.
