The company shares this statement in their allergens guide: ‘We know many of our valued Guests have varying degrees of food intolerances and allergies they deal with daily. To ensure you have a

safe experience, please review the following information to assist you with selecting menu options that best fit your individual needs. Because of our reliance on suppliers for accurate information, shared cooking and preparation areas in our kitchens, and cooking procedures, we cannot eliminate the risk of cross-contact or guarantee that any item is free of any allergen and no items are certified gluten free, vegetarian or vegan.’

Buffalo Wild Wings shares this notice about preparation of menu items:

‘Normal kitchen operations often involve shared cooking, preparation areas and tools; for that reason the possibility and risk exists for allergen-containing food items to come in contact with other food products.


  • We do not use separate fryers; due to this use of shared fryers there is the potential for allergen cross-contact between fried foods.
  • Our Traditional, Boneless and Cauliflower Wings are fried then sauced or seasoned in the same bowls.
  • We grill many items that contain allergens, therefore cross-contact may occur during the grilling process.

Buffalo Wild Wings has received allergen information from our approved manufacturers and does not guarantee its accuracy other than as compiled. It is possible that ingredient changes and substitutions may occur due to the differences in regional suppliers, recipe revisions and/or preparation techniques. Some menu offerings may vary by restaurant and may not be available at all locations; test products, test recipes, limited time offers, or regional items may not be included.

Beef shortening is used to fry products. Refer to the FRIED column under PREPARATION for indication of what products are fried in beef shortening.’

Summary of Gluten Free Menu Options at Buffalo Wild Wings

Pro tips and a quick summary of everything gluten free at Buffalo Wild Wings

  1. When you order at the store or even online, tell them you have an allergy or Celiac Disease so they take precautions with your drinks and food.
  2. Buffalo Wild Wings offers both Traditional Wings and Naked Chicken Tenders that are free from wheat/gluten ingredients (outside of cross contamination).
  3. Buffalo Wild Wings has poor reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app. With an average of 3 stars from over 120 people, the majority contain a negative sentiment. Most of the bad reviews mentioned no dedicated fryer and high risks for cross contaminations. Some reviews mentioned their location having dedicated fryers! So call to ask your local Buffalo Wild Wings for more information about their kitchen.
  4. Personal experiences here were usually good, with the Traditional Wings and buffalo/lemon pepper sauces not causing any reactions. I also enjoy the fries and ranch sauce from B-Dubs.
