5 GLUTEN FREE CHAIN RESTAURANTS
Gluten-Free Fast Food: What Are Your Options?
The growing popularity of the gluten-free diet means even fast food restaurant chains—which tend to have pretty gluten-filled menus—are jumping on the bandwagon, providing more options for those of us with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
Not every fast food and casual dining chain provides great options for those who are eating gluten-free—inevitably, some are better than others. Your best options for gluten-free fast food include:
- Boston Market
- Chick-fil-A (offers gluten-free buns and gluten-free french fries)
- Chipotle Mexican Grill
- Five Guys (offers gluten-free fries)
- In-N-Out Burger (offers gluten-free fries)
- Shake Shack (offers gluten-free buns)
- Sonic Drive-In (offers gluten-free fries)
- Zoe's Kitchen
Your best options for gluten-free table service dining out include:
- Bonefish Grill
- Carrabba's Italian Grill
- Cheeseburger in Paradise
- Chili's Bar and Grill
- Old Spaghetti Factory
- Outback Steak House
- P.F. Chang's China Bistro
- Uno Chicago Grill
Note that Burger King, KFC, McDonald's and Taco Bell are among the worst choices for gluten-free fast food, as they have extremely limited options and the risks for gluten cross-contamination are high. Scroll down to the very bottom of this article to see what you can order if you find yourself stuck with one of those for lunch or dinner.
Regardless of which restaurant you choose, just be careful: the risk of cross-contamination in fast food and fast casual restaurants, even those with gluten-free menus, can be extremely high, and it's possible that the people behind the counter or in the kitchen have not been trained in avoiding it. Keep your order simple and your instructions explicit for the best results.
Here's a rundown of common fast food and fast casual restaurant chains and their gluten-free menu options, with the most accommodating chains listed first, in alphabetical order.
