    Use to love this place, But recently changed their GF buns, and they are HORRIBLE! much better off w/a lettuce wrap. Still like that I can indulge in cheese fries here. Thats probably All I'll order from here. Sad old buns were much better.

    Stopped there with my husband and daughter to have something to eat. They offer burgers on different types of buns (wheat, egg, gluten free and pretzel roll.) you can also get it wrapped in a Boston lettuce leaf. They offer cookies that are gluten free too.

    I have been here several times over the past year, and the food is fantastic. The staff and owner are very knowledgable and it's great to not have to worry. I also can not have beef so the other meat options are awesome. My only issue with the place is the length of time it takes to get your food. I had one really bad experience with wait time but that has not happened again. I highly recommend ordering your food ahead of time online.

    Great options for those with Celiac. Good buns. Knowledgeable staff. I hope they continue to be busy, so they can upgrade their location to accommodate dining in. We will be back!

    Absolutely amazing! The buns are extremely thick. The restaurant recommends you eat the entire bun the first time. When you come back, you can decide if that was too much bun and want them to cut it down.

    Found this on FMGF and decided to check it out. The "boss" was amazing. He let us sample all their GF options (chicken nuggets, mozzarella sticks and a drink). He explained all their procedures, showed us the products he uses and we felt very safe eating there. The burgers were yummy too!

    They have Udi's brand gluten free buns - just ok, but nice to have the option. And the fries are safe to eat! The burger was good.

    Really, a burger with a gluten free bun and on top of it near my office in the burbs...comeon. This place rocks, the only downfall is there is no where to sit (they have 6 counter seats) and they are making plans to have seating outside, which will be awesome in the summer time. They charge for the gluten free bun making your burger almost an $8 burger but it's a nice sized burger and if you went to nicer place for a burger (like capital grille) they probably would charge you more without the bun. The staff is friendly and the owner of this establishment eats gluten free and has a good story to how he began this business. I see good things happening for this little (but huge for those with an intolerance to wheat) place. Will be back there soon.
