Gluten Free Menu: No   In-N-Out doesn't have a gluten free/special diets menu per say

Description: Here is what can be safely ordered from their menu if one is gluten free:
French Fries: In-N-Out's french fries are truly gluten free. The restaurant has a very simple menu and does not have any breaded items. The fries are fresh cut in the restaurant everyday and made when ordered in their fryer which has nothing else cooked in it.
Hamburger: Order "Protein Style" and it comes wrapped in lettuce (remember the Atkin's Diet fad?). Off their "secret menu" you may also order a burger called the "Flying Dutchman". It is two beef patties with two slices of cheese, no bun. Be sure that you specify that your order not be exposed to any buns and why--often it is easier to explain as an "allergy" to the buns rather than to go into details regarding Celiac Disease or other specific auto-immune disorders. We have also read on the Internet that some In-N-Outs have a separate grill in the back of the kitchen for special orders. Be sure to ask!
Shakes: 100% pure ice cream
Be sure to order any burger with NO SAUCE. They use the same vat and knife to spread the sauce on buns for regular orders, so it is not considered to be gluten free. The grilled onions are NOT gluten free; fresh may be okay, though be sure, if you can have onions, that they would chop them away from anything with gluten. The cheese they use IS gluten free.
Comments: Jan 31, 2014: I've eaten at In 'N Out on Oracle twice in the last two weeks, burger and fries. I identified the food issue to the counter guy, he clearly identified it on the order, and I had no problems at all. I'll eat here again.

Mar 10, 2013: I no longer get burgers from In and Out. I heard they were GF, so I ate there a couple of times and had no problem, getting the protein style with no sauce. Then I began to have problems, but I noticed that they cook the buns and burgers on the same grill next to each other. They are also handling the buns and burgers without changing gloves. I simply don't get the burgers, just not worth a trip to urgent care. I do get the fries tho if I'm there with family/friends.

Jun 6, 2012: In-n-Out is no longer accomadating GF, they will cook it on a grill which previously had burgers and buns cooking on it. The managers have changed from older experenced to young inexperenced and they dont have a clue what GF is. The last 2 times I went there they offered to fire up the 3rd grille but they gave different warm up times of 30 to 45 minutes. Beware!

Jul 18, 2011: When ordering get the lettuce wrap without sauce & I add tomato and onion. Tell them you have an allergy and they will press the allergy button on the register. Ask them to change their gloves, spatula and see if they can cook on a separate grill. I also get the fries. I have eaten there dozens of time and had only one incident. They gave me a free meal the next time and I give a better warning when I order. Great food!

Jan 31, 2010: I have had mixed (stomach) reactions from the burger wrapped in lettuce and fries routine from In-N-Out and could never figure out why until I recently read in a celiac disease awareness article that sometimes flour is added to burger patties as a bonding agent to keep them together, and that this ingredient is often not added to the ingredients label. That is the only thing besides something with the fries that I can think of that may have caused my unmistakable gluten reaction. I do not know if In-N-Out is supplied by the the companies caught doing this big food-allergy no-no, but I hope this helps others that have had that same puzzling experience where you have no idea what could cause you illness from only a burger patty and lettuce.
In response to an email query about their patties IN-N-OUT Burger responded: In response to your question, our meat patties are 100% pure extra lean American beef. We do not use any kind of fillers, which makes the patties gluten free.

Jul 19, 2009: I ordered the protein wrap & fries. It happened to be about 5pm & it was starting to get busy. The manager waited on me & said he'd have to clean a grill. I'm pretty sensitive to cross contamination, but I thought I'd give it a try. I had eaten there before without any problems. The manager seemed very considerate of my situation, but I ended up getting sick after eating there. I'm not sure why unless the grill was not cleaned properly or there was some sort of cross contamination. My husband was wondering if something was cooked in the french fry grease that wasn't supposed to be?? I don't know. Also, be very careful & check your burger before you leave if you do order there. About a month prior to this I ordered the same thing. A protein wrap with nothing on it but cheese & an order of fries - same for my son who is also a celiac. I was in a hurry & forgot to check the burgers. They added tomatoes & sauce to our burgers after I specifically asking for none.
