While Fazoli’s does have a few items offered on their gluten-free menu, they barely have enough to scrape together a meal. They do not seem to be very oriented towards accommodating those with Celiac disease or other non-Celiac gluten sensitivities.
Since 1988, they’ve been serving Italian American cooking that is heavily geared towards carbs like pizza, pasta, and breadsticks. That means there isn’t much that doesn’t have gluten already in it.
If you’re out with friends or family who insist on Fazoli’s, then check out some of your options below to see if you can piece something together for a meal.
You’d be surprised what you can do to be creative with little options and the Fazoli’s managers are willing to help you alter any items that might eatable, depending on your level of sensitivity.

Popular Gluten Free Items at Fazoli’s
Your main options at Fazoli’s are going to be the salads. There really isn’t anything more, other than a few dessert options, that could act as a good gluten-free meal.
When ordering your salad, be sure to talk to a manager and have them hold the croutons! Those would certainly be an unwelcome surprise. Also be sure to mention your insensitivity and have them do their best to prevent cross contamination. You can see your main options below.
Chicken Bacon Caesar Salad
If you’re going for a protein-packed meal, then this is the option for you. A mixture of lettuce, greens, chicken, and bacon, it is sure to fill you up and satisfy some cravings. Ask for no croutons and be sure to mention your sensitivity.
You can get this salad, an entree size, for only $6.99.
Italian Lemon Ice
Now everyone could go for a little bit of dessert. This is where you don’t really have to hold back or be nervous. As long as you inform a manager about the risks of cross-contamination, they are sure to dip your lemon ice clean!
You can get them in a variety of flavors that are all gluten-free, including grape, strawberry, and raspberry. Get one for only $2-$3.
Italian Deli Trio Salad
Also available for $6.99, this salad is the closest thing that you will be able to get to Italian food at Fazoli’s. Most everything is pasta or pizza but at least this dish has Italian deli meats.
It will include Fazoli’s standard lettuce and greens and will be topped with the dressing of your choice. Remember to hold the croutons!
House Side Salad
Although this is only a side salad, it could pair well with other food you get at another restaurant. It is a simple salad with lettuce and greens plus your choice of dressing.
It is cheap and only costs $2.29.
Enjoy Fazoli’s Gluten Free Offering
As you can see, accommodations for those with gluten allergies still have a long way to go. Even at a place like Fazoli’s it is hard to piece together a meal that is acceptable for lunch or dinner.
If you must visit, they do have salad as a backup and their lemon ices are a great sweet treat that everyone can enjoy.
The next time you’re in the mood for a salad, Fazoli’s has some great options that are served cheap and will fill you up.!
