Use this G-Free Foodie Guide to help navigate the world of Drive-thru & Fast Foods Restaurants.
Arby’s: Many of Arby’s meats, salads & sauces are G-Free, as are their shakes. The staff will put the meat & sauce in a plastic container for you, or order a Chopped Side or Farmhouse salad and add your protein. Arby’s Gluten Free Menu
Carl’s Jr.: Order almost any of of Carl’s Jr.’s burgers with no bun (“Low Carb” style) for a tasty G-Free meal, just steer clear of the onion rings, sides and chicken. Carl’s Jr. Gluten Sensitive Info
Chick-fil-A: This restaurant offers their Chargrilled Chicken filet, Chicken Garden Salad and Chicken & Fruit Salad for G-Free Entrees, along with many of their sides, dressings, and desserts. Chick-fil-A Gluten Free Menu
Chipotle: Everything at Chipotle is Gluten Free, other than the flour tortillas. There are great options for Dairy Free too, and the food at Chipotle contains no nuts or seafood. Staff will happily change gloves if you ask (be sure to ask!) and talk you through the rest! Chipotle Special Diet Info
El Pollo Loco: The flame-grilled chicken, pinto beans, corn on the cob & more are all G-Free options at El Pollo Loco. El Pollo Loco Gluten Free Guide
Hardee’s: Like it’s sister chain, Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s will make burgers Low-Carb style. Hardee’s Gluten Sensitive Info
In-N-Out Burger: With the exception of the buns, everything on the menu at this West Coast burger chain is Gluten-Free. Order your burger “Protein-Style” to avoid the bun, and feel free to add a side of fries – their fresh cut potatoes are the only thing to hit the fryer oil here. Be sure to staff you’re Gluten Free, so they don’t use the same spreaders used on the buns. In-N-Out Website
Sonic: The hamburger patties, hot dogs, steak & bacon are G-Free at Sonic, but avoid the chicken, chili & fryer items. The soft serve and drink syrups are all Gluten-Free too. Sonic Allergen List
Subway: All the salads at this popular sub shop are Gluten-Free, with the exception of these three: Meatball Marinara, Seafood Sensation & Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki. Sandwiches, bread, & cookies are out of course, but there are more options than you’d think. Be sure to ask your server to change gloves. Subway Allergen Chart
Wendy’s: The G-Free Foodie team loves Wendy’s, where we can score Gluten-Free Frostys & delicious Chili, plus lettuce-wrapped hamburger patties with bacon, cheese & trimmings that are all G-Free. You can also pick up a baked potato with G-Free toppings, side salads, or the Baja Salad. Yum. Wendy’s Gluten Free Menu
