Chick Fil A Gluten Free Menu

Chick Fil A Gluten Free MenuSometimes I’m in the mood for some good waffle fries.  As a Celiac, getting gluten-free fries is not always easy. Often restaurants do not have a dedicated fryer for fries, instead, fries share the fryer with other breaded, fried foods.

Chick-Fil-A has a dedicated fryer for just their waffle fries!  Woohoo! It’s my “go to” place for fast food.  When you order, you still need to specify that you require gluten-free.  The staff was knowledgeable about cross-contamination.  They change gloves and make sure the grilling surface is clear of any potential gluten contamination.

They have a good list of gluten-free options from the Chick Fil A gluten free menu.  Here are some of the choices:

  • Grilled chicken breast
  • Grilled chicken nuggets
  • Garden salad
  • Chicken and fruit salad
  • Fruit cup
  • Cole slaw
  • Waffle fries
  • Hash browns
  • Yogurt (without the topping)

Most of the sauces and dressings are gluten-free, too!

  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Honey Mustard Sauce
  • Honey roasted BBQ Sauce
  • Polynesian Sauce
  • Buttermilk Ranch Sauce
  • Chick-fil-a Buffalo Sauce
  • Chick-fil-a Sauce
  • Spicy Dressing
  • Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing
  • Zesty Apple Cider Dressing
  • Lite Italian Dressing
  • Fat Free Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing
  • Reduced Fat Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Their grilled chicken is very tasty.  While they do not have a gluten-free bun, I either go after their grilled chicken breast or the grilled chicken nuggets. I prefer the Chick-Fil-A sauce. It has a slight sweetness and barbecue flavor and taste great with the chicken and the fries.  As a meal, I like to mix the fries and chicken together and drizzle some of the sauce on it.

I think we all have a food weakness—French fries! Chick-Fil-A is everywhere.  Whenever I’m out and need a bite to eat, I can always rely on Chick-Fil-A to show up on my Find Me Gluten Free app. Nothing like some good waffle fries!

Five Guys Gluten Free Menu

Five Guys Gluten Free MenuMmmmm…a juicy cheeseburger! I walk into Five Guys and immediately I see the consumer reviews posted on the walls. I’ve heard about Five Guys and their infamous burgers. Since I’ve learned I had Celiac, it had been years since I had a good burger. I’ve heard the staff at Five Guys has training in handling gluten-free requests. When I mentioned to the staff that I had to be gluten-free, they knew exactly what to do.  They flagged my order as an allergy with special instructions and no bun.

Five Guys is burger and fries place. Even though they do not have gluten-free buns, their burgers are gluten-free and they’re handmade, not from frozen burger patties. However, you do have the option of having a lettuce wrap instead of a bun. I prefer my cheeseburger with some grilled mushrooms without the lettuce wrap. It gets a little messy eating with your hands. So, I eat my burger with a fork and knife.

Five Guys French fries are hand cut and fried in a dedicated fryer. They’re very tasty and remind me of Boardwalk Fries from my times at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. I like mixing my burger and fries with some ketchup and mayonnaise, eating it like a meal.  The toppings are gluten-free, including the A1 Steak Sauce and barbecue sauce. However, the malt vinegar is NOT gluten-free. If you’re not in the mood for burgers, Five Guys also serve hot dogs, which are also gluten-free (must be without the bun).

Here are some tips for ordering at Five Guys:

  • Make sure you let the staff know you are gluten-free
  • Order your burger without the bun. You can request a lettuce wrap if you’d like
  • French fries are made in a dedicated fryer
  • Toppings are gluten-free except for malt vinegar

So, if you’re on the go and looking for some juicy goodness, Five Guys is the place to satisfy that craving with a juicy, flavorful burger.  And, don’t forget the yummy fries!

In N Out Gluten Free Menu

In N Out Gluten Free MenuIn N Out Burger is one of those places that you wonder if you can eat anything gluten free. Well, the good thing is most of their ingredients (minus the bun) are naturally gluten free.

If you are looking for a gluten free meal at In N Out, we suggest ordering the following:

-A Hamburger, Cheeseburger, or Double Double made Protein Style. This is where they wrap the burger in lettuce instead of using a bun. Order ketchup and mustard instead of the spread. The spread seems to be a Thousand Island style sauce and we’ve heard mixed reports on whether or not it is gluten free. Many people have reported no reaction and some have so proceed with caution. I always order my burger from In N Out protein style with ketchup and mustard instead of spread and it tastes great!

-Fries. The In N Out fries are gluten free because they don’t fry anything else there so there isn’t a high risk of cross contamination like you might have at other restaurants.

-Shakes: All In N Out Shakes are gluten free. You can choose from vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Go on, indulge yourself. Order a neopolitan shake which mixes vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry together for a real yummy treat.

We really like In N Out for gluten free dining. However, even though In N Out gluten free menu provides you with a lot of options there is still a risk for cross contamination because of their buns and how often they are being prepared. You may also risk cross contamination with their spatulas in the kitchen. If you ask your server to separate your burger to help avoid cross contamination they may be willing to do that. It’s worth a try.

Overall we find In N Out’s gluten free menu to be a good, relatively inexpensive meal when you’re on a road trip or looking for a quick bite to eat.
