9 Fast Foods That Are Gluten Free

Many people cannot enjoy certain foods because they are gluten intolerant. When you have gluten intolerance, you cannot eat foods with ingredients containing gluten, such as barley, wheat, and rye. What it also means is that you cannot enjoy fast food with friends because most of those items on the menu contain gluten. Thankfully, you do not have to avoid fast food altogether because it is possible to find fast foods that are gluten free. Let's find out about some interesting options.  

Gluten Free Fast Food

It is hard to make others understand why you do not like a trip to McDonalds. Your gluten intolerance keeps you from eating certain foods, but with little education, you can find a long list of foods that do not contain gluten. Here are some suggestions:

1. In-N-Out: Double Double

If you opt for the protein style, you will not have to worry about dealing with an upset tummy. In-N-Out's "protein style" burger is one of the best options for anyone suffering from gluten intolerance.

2. Bunless Whopper by Burger King

That Whopper patty at Burger King is going to make you happy because it allows you to forget about your gluten intolerance for a while. You can make it even better by washing it down with a vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry milkshake.

3. Grilled Chicken Nuggets by Chick-fil-A

Yes, that is right – you can order these chicken nuggets without having to worry about any digestive issue because it is a good example of gluten free fast food. Just be very careful when placing your order because their regular nuggets are laden with gluten. Opt for the grilled ones only!

4. Premium Bacon Ranch Salad by McDonald's

You can now enjoy with friends at McDonald's even when you have gluten intolerance. All you have to do is order premium bacon ranch salad. Understand that you have to avoid the bun as well as the special sauce because it contains wheat.

5. George's Chili Supreme by Culver's

It is true that you will have to go through some hassle to find something gluten-free at Culver's because they have built their reputation on breaded and fried cheese curds. Still, you can always opt for George's Chili Supreme because it does not contain any gluten.

6. Caesar Salad by KFC

You cannot find much to order at KFC when you have gluten intolerance, but you can still opt for Caesar or House salad. Both salad options should be ordered without croutons or dressing. You can make it better by loading up on green beans and coleslaw, but do not expect much.

7. Burrito Bowl by Chipotle

Even if you cannot tolerate the sight of muffins, you can still find some nice options at Chipotle. Avoid flour tortillas but you can order a number of other items, including the burrito bowl that you can order with extra guacamole.

8. Bunless Bacon Cheesseburger by Sonic

Do not expect much support from Sonic when you have gluten intolerance. A good gluten free fast food option at Sonic is bunless bacon cheeseburger. You can also enjoy bacon, beef, and cheese.

9. Red Beans and Rice at Popeye's

In this fried chicken restaurant, you are not going to get so many gluten-free food options, but you can still find some good side dishes. One great idea is to order red beans and rice. You can also try Cajun Rice for a change.

Some Fast Food Restaurants to Consider

You already have a short list of foods that do not contain gluten, but there are some other interesting options depending on which fast food chain you choose for dining out. For instance:

1. Sonic

It is probably one of the best choices to order gluten free fast food. They offer a number of gluten-free foods. You can always opt for their grilled foods, such as bacon, hamburgers without the bun of course, and Philly steak. You may also consider trying their ice cream, which is supposedly gluten free. Keep in mind that they have a small kitchen size that makes cross-contamination a big risk.

2. MacDonald's

When you are at this fast food restaurant, all you have to do is order any of their burgers but without the bun. Simply ask them to wrap it in lettuce. Avoid their sauces. Their salads are also good, but keep in mind that many of their so-called 'gluten-free' options are not without gluten because of cross contamination.

3. Taco Bell

Before you go to Taco Bell, know that they do not claim to be a gluten-free environment. It means that there is no guarantee that any of their food will be completely free of gluten. The chances of cross contamination are quite high. Certain items on their menu do not have gluten in themselves, such as Spicy Tostada, nachos, Pintos N Cheese, and black beans with rice.

4. Five Guys

You can find a nice list of gluten free fast food options at Five Guy. All their fries, burgers, and hot dogs are gluten-free, and the same is the case with the toppings. You can also order some of their milkshakes. Just be sure to avoid fry sauce, malt vinegar, malted milk, Oreo cookie pieces, and cherry milkshake mix-ins. Another good thing about Five Guys is that they do not offer a long list of items, so the risk of cross-contamination is quite on the lower side.
