Here is the complete Hardee’s gluten-free menu. Hardee’s does not have a lot of gluten-free food on their menu, but they do offer lettuce wraps and a few other things. They advertise a gluten-sensitive menu which only consists of three items. Luckily, there are a few more things that they serve that don’t contain gluten.
However, they note that they operate a shared cooking environment and cross-contamination can occur with any of their food. If you have Celiac Disease or severe gluten intolerance, this might not be the best place to go.

Hardee’s is an American fast-food restaurant chain that primarily specializes in hamburgers. As it stands today, it’s the 6th largest restaurant chain in the United States with thousands of locations across the country. This company is the brainchild of Wilbur Hardee and first began operations in Greenville, North Carolina on September 3, 1960.
Hardee’s signature item, the Huskee hamburger, gained massive popularity within a year after the restaurant was founded. About 5 months later, they had their first franchise and have since expanded throughout the years to become a favorite brand among many people, especially in the Southeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States.
Following its opening, the restaurant enjoyed a period of steady growth over the next 20 years, primarily due to the expansion of its initial line of hamburgers. By 1980, Hardee’s had reached its growth pinnacle with more than 4,000 locations.
In April 1997, CKE Restaurant Holdings Inc. paid an estimated $327 million to acquire Hardee’s. The merger created a massive chain consisting of 3,828 restaurants, 3,152 of which originally belonged to Hardee’s and were spread across 40 states in U.S. and 10 foreign nations, as well as 676 of CKE Holding’s Carl’s Jr. restaurants found primarily in California.
The new owners went ahead to upgrade its menu and also discontinued Hardee’s signature charbroiling cooking practice. Though most folks knew the restaurant for its biscuits, that all changed in 2003 when Hardee’s cut down its menu to focus only on the Thickburger line. This burger is made from 100% Angus beef, and this has contributed to making Hardee’s a leader in the quick-service industry for both quality and taste.
In recent years, the restaurant has been expanding its portfolio by opening new locations in the Northeast after decades of focusing only on Midwest and Southeast territories. In 2007, they also moved their headquarters from North Carolina to St Louis, Missouri. Today, Hardee’s continues to forge ahead with its fresh menu items, enticing advertisements, and upgraded fast-food experience.

Hardee's Gluten-Free Menu
We wish that Hardee’s did more to cater to the gluten-free crowd. For those who aren’t allergic or intolerant and just looking to follow a gluten-free diet, it’s probably safe but their gluten-free selection is still limited. It’s nice that they offer a lettuce wrap, but a gluten-free bun would be even better. And other then a lettuce wrapped burger and a few sides, there isn’t much to choose from here. Cross contamination is also a definite possibility.

The Hardee’s website shows the fries as having wheat now so this list is inaccurate.
Thanks! We have updated the menu above regarding their french fries. They do list wheat in them now, whether it is from cross contamination or an actual ingredient, they are not safe.
The Hardees here also uses french fries – deep fryer with deserts causing cross-contamination.
