Wingstop - NO LONGER Gluten Free Wings of ANY kind(Beware)

Once upon a time there were GF wings offered atWingstop.

I went on their website to find a location near me and decided to double check the allergens. 

Egad!  ALL of their food now is listed as containing gluten because of the way they filtrate their oil in the cleaning process, even the bone-in wings may have trace amounts of gluten...and can no longer be called completely gluten-free.  (I'm guessing that means that they mix the boneless and bone-in wing oil during the cleaning process.)

Don't believe me (or don't want to believe me)? 

Their allergens can be found on the website here.

Looks like I will be going to TGI Friday's for some bone-in wings that are GF from now on.  Several locations now offer a gluten free menu...ask at the one nearest to you.  I'll post some photos when I get around to it.

I guess this shows that it is always good to double check that allergen information at a restaurant has not changed since your last visit....


  1. I noticed this too after my husband told me they were gluten free. My guess is they always had that cleaning process, but it was brought to light by someone and they refined their menu to match. I may be a masochist, but I took my chances and had some the other day and felt ok, but I'm new to gf, so I may not be as sensitive as I should be yet.

  2. I've been Gluten Free for 3 years and am Celiac and never had a problem since they added the Bonless Wings. I was told that they never cook Bone In Wings with anything else and that the only place that there could be is in the oil because they use the same equipment to filter the oils.
