Items to Avoid at Hardee’s

These items all contain gluten or have a very high risk for gluten contamination:

  • The hash rounds contain wheat. The crispy curly fries contain wheat.
  • The fries may be safe, but being in the same fryer as all the other items, it is risky.
  • You can also get the burgers and some sandwiches with a lettuce wrap, but be careful for cross contamination on the grill.
  • All tacos options contain gluten and a lot of other Red Burrito options contain gluten so be cautious.
  • All nachos options contain gluten.

 

Summary of Gluten Free Menu Options at Hardee’s

Pro tips and a quick summary of everything gluten free at Hardee’s

  1. When you order at the store or on the app, tell them you have an allergy or Celiac Disease so they take precautions with your food.
  2. Hardee’s has more options than Carl’s Jr. You can get the chicken or beef bowl, some sides from Red Burrito, and a lot of the burgers with a lettuce wrap.
  3. Hardee’s has pretty limited, but good reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app. The good reviews mentioned lettuce wraps and good practices. The single star reviews all mentioned staff not understanding gluten free.
  4. Personal experiences here are unknown currently. I will update this post if I ever try Hardee’s.
