    My wife didn't die after eating there twice, and the food is good. The Volcano Panini is excellent.

    I got the tuna sandwich with waffle fries and of course I couldn't leave without trying the cactus chilli! Yes, it lives up to its reputation! Worth the trip.

    Hear people raving about the cactus chili (yes, cactus) every time I eat there. I always get a panini and fries. The fries are nice and crispy even though they're actually baked. The meats are all hand cut in house...no processed coldcuts here. Just ask for gluten-free bread.

    Went to Hot Krust TWICE while on holiday and it was delicious both times! The manager is aware of celiac disease and asks if you have a gluten allergy when you order. The Gobble Gobble Turkey sandwich was delicious and I felt amazing afterwards!!

    This place is great and the sandwiches are some of the best I have had! If you tell them you are gluten free you have the option of them preparing your order separately so there is so cross contamination. I recommend the Gobble gobble turkey it tastes just like Thanksgiving!

    Love, love, love this place! Ironic that a place called Hot Krust has an awesome GF menu. Paninis and salads are awesome -- as are the spicy spiral fries and DON'T miss the gf cactus chili! Owner is friendly and allergy attentive -- it's a must lunch stop every time we're in Orlando.

    I'm gluten intolerant and I have never experienced a restaurant with such great service and so knowledgeable. Awesome food. The staff/owners are awesome and very nice. We also experienced their own daughters with an exchange student, the young ladies were very respectful and very sweet with the student. Will continue coming and highly recommend.

    This place is the best! So rarely can you find a place that serves gluten free sandwiches & french fries, too, not to mention! I am always asked, upon ordering, if its a gluten allergy, indicating they take cross contamination very seriously. The owner is usually present when I've come here & he's always cheerful. And of course the food is great, too!

    The staff is friendly and highly knowledgable about gf needs. I ordered the Gobble Gobble Turkey with waffle fries. They take extra measures to prevent cross-contamination for the panini sandwiches and the fries are baked so no worries about shared fryers. I loved my sandwich and fries! The price was decent for the amount and quality of food.

    Excellent - I'm in the OCCC area multiple times a year, and this is now a go to. The tuna panini is phenomenal, and the baked sweet potato fries a great. All of the sauces they have by the condiments are gluten free and delicious.

    One of the best GF options in Orlando! ALL paninis (except those with blue cheese) can be made entirely GF with Udi's bread. Potato and sweet potato waffle fries can be baked separately. Had the Champagne Shrimp panini -- fantastic!! No symptoms after eating here. And best of all, incredibly affordable and quick option! Highly recommend!

    So many great choices and very celiac friendly. Baked potato and sweet potato fries are safe as are all the sandwiches. They explained their entire process to us to avoid cross contamination. The cactus chili and broccoli cheese soup are gfree too. No processed meats other than the bacon topping. Going to try the chicken wings next time for sure.

    haven't been able to eat barbeque sauce in forever and theirs is gluten free and amazing! Make sure you specify if you're celiac or just on a gluten free diet and they'll take care of you accordingly. they even have gluten free fries! i had the turkey fondue and my boyfriend got the HK burger-nini. incredibly fresh ingredients and they cook all their own meats in house, no processed meats!

    Very honest man. Explained what sandwich ingredients and condiments are gluten free. Told us we need to specify gluten free DUE TO ALLERGY and they will prepare separately. Gobble Gobble panini on GF bread was delicious. Just got a little soggy on one side due to the cranberry sauce.

    Amazing service. Very gluten friendly. Owner really goes out of his way to insure proper handling of food. I had the Philly cheesesteak panini. It was delicious. The fries are baked not fried. Awesome place to visit. I wish they were closer to my house because I would be a frequent customer!

    I was very pleased with this restaurant. They seemed knowledgeable about gluten free and prepare the sandwiches separately if you let them know it is because of an allergy. The bread was very good and the sandwich was a good size (I think we can all agree that sometimes gf bread can be smaller than regular bread). The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is gf and wants a good sandwich. And for those with family members not eating gf, my family enjoyed the sandwiches with the white and multi grain breads.

    My sister, brother-in-law and I have Celiac's disease and other food allergies. We started to order and when Evan,the owner ,heard all of the food allergies and Celiac's he came out from the back to discuss with us exactly what we needed to be done so we would be safe. He discussed everything with all three of us to make sure nobody got sick. The food was delicious. I had the wings with the sweet potato fries and a small garden salad it was all delicious. My sister and brother-in-law had a large salad with hamburgers on top and they loved it. Prices were great. Wonderful place to go. We ate outside and it was great!! Thank you Evan😉😉☺️☺️☺️Lannie Sauvage

    Amazing food and you can tell the owner takes pride in the sandwiches. Tell them you need gluten free and they will ask if you want it made on separate equipment for those that need it.

    Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. The server (think it was the owner) was very knowledgeable on what I could and could not have. The panini I ordered was delicious as were the baked sweet potato fries. Glad we got to eat here while vacationing.

    they use Udis bread and are well educated on little things that may contain gluten (like blue cheese). they also asked when I ordered if it was dietary or allergy so they knew to use a clean prep area.
