I used to love this place and ate there or got carry out at least twice a month--because the food is good and they will make some of their food gluten free. I no longer will be patronizing this restaurant. It is now charging $2.50 an order on the weekends to make the food gluten free. Note that in this instance, the substitutions for ingredients containing gluten are no more expensive than the other ingredients (unlike GF baking). The restaurant even noted "the additional time it takes" to make the food gluten free. That in itself tells me they're not making all of their food specifically for each order.
Great GF place. Tim was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. he said they use Udi buns and have a dedicated fryer. My kids ate off the kids menu which is rare. One got the hamburger with a GF bun and the other ordered the fried fish which they were able to sub for some grilled fish! their servings were huge. Even had sweet potato fries. I had this amazing fish sandwich with slaw. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for GF dining.

They are very understanding of GF peeps and though they don't have a dedicated grill for their GF sandwiches, they were sure to thoroughly clean the grill before making my sandwich. GF bread doesn't TASTE like GF bread, ya know? And GF or not, the sandwich was freaking delicious. I got the Briqueso. It was everything you'd want from a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich. The house-made potato chips, while GF, are fried in a shared fryer, so I chose to avoid them.
The location and atmosphere are off-putting, but they were amazingly fast for it being lunch rush. I cannot recommend this place enough.
TERRIBLE!!! BEWARE!!! OUCH!!!! People need to understand more about celiac and gluten sensitivity! What is the point of selling gluten free items when they can't be careful when preparing? Even after we asked for them to switch gloves and paid extra for the buns... cross contamination got us!
