Are chicken wings gluten free?

When you have special dietary restrictions, dining out can get tricky. That’s why we make it easy to identify our vegan, vegetarian, low-gluten and gluten free options on our online menu.

About a third of Americans try to avoid gluten, according to a 2013 survey. One in 100 people are affected by Celiac Disease, which causes intestinal damage when gluten is ingested. Researchers estimate that another 6-7 percent of the population have a gluten sensitivity that causes not-so-fun symptoms when ingesting gluten.

Got a craving for gluten free buffalo wings? Looking for the perfect gluten free wing sauce? Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a rundown of our many options to make us your gluten free chicken wing restaurant of choice.

Are chicken wings gluten free?

Although our traditional wings are technically gluten free, our menu indicates that they are low-gluten because they might be cooked in a fryer that could contain some trace amounts of gluten. We suggest confirming with your restaurant location to avoid cross-contamination if you are highly sensitive to gluten.

If you want to be sure your meal is 100% gluten free, we suggest ordering boneless wings grilled, not fried, as the breading contains gluten.
