Summary of Gluten Free Menu Options at KFC

Pro tips and a quick summary of everything gluten free at KFC

  1. When you order at the restaurant, drive through, or even online, tell them you have an allergy or Celiac Disease so they take precautions with your drinks and food.
  2. KFC has very limited options. Outside of sides and dipping sauces, there aren’t many things to eat here.
  3. KFC has no reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app. That is most likely due to the limited options available to gluten free consumers.
