    My gluten free bun was cooked perfectly (no doubt Udi's) but my turkey burger was a little dry and overlooked (better than undercooked, right?). The hostess/waitress did not know that they still had a GF menu and confused it with Vegan somehow so ask lots of questions. I think she was just over worked. They had fries on their GF menu but I didn't order any so I didn't ask about cross contamination. I'll probably be back next time I visit LA area.

    So happy to find this place. I wish I could post pics -they have a great gf menu, a dedicated fryer and even gf milkshakes. You can pick bison, chicken, turkey or regular burgers. Fry options are sweet potato or Regular. Tons of topping choices and a good gf bun. Right on times sq.

    They have a gluten free menu! We had the bison burgers on gluten free buns! The gf menu lets you know what's safe to eat. Such good food. It was pricey. So worth the money.

    Gluten free bun option both for breakfast sandwich or burger - not listed on breakfast menu but I asked and it was fine. Good bacon and egg, average bun, amazing to get to eat a proper breakfast sandwich in the airport! Service on the slow side.

    LOVE. If you tell them you are celiac/gluten intolerant/gluten allergy, they *will* take care to make sure your food is prepared safely. And the food is delicious.

    Good selection on their GF menu. Great burgers and dedicated fryer for all their french fries, which were wonderful, especially the sweet potato fries! Yum! My super sensitive celiac wife had a bison burger in a bowl, and had no trouble afterwards. We will definitely eat here again next time in the city!

    I really enjoyed this place. Sure, it's a bit expensive, but there are SO many options to choose from, even on the GF menu! They offer toppings well beyond your typical burger place and had a nice selection of wine. I think they had a GF beer as well, but I don't recall. I had a bison burger with several toppings, including sauces, and a gluten free bun (you can also get a lettuce bun or lettuce bed). The bun was good and didn't fall apart like some GF buns. I have celiac disease and I am very sensitive to cross-contamination and I felt great after eating here!

    - New Update - For some reason they have eliminated their gluten free menu. Their chili is no longer gluten free, and they say their fries are no longer gluten free and share the same fryer as their gluten containing goods. When I asked for a gluten free menu (I always like to see if anything has been updated and changed before ordering) the waitress brought out a hand-written sticky not saying was sauces were okay. Overall very disappointed, but they still have their gluten free buns so I'll keep a three star rating. I'll be going to the new nearby in and out for my french fry fix from now on. Best burger place around that accommodates gluten allergies. They've got a nicely designed gluten free menu, and list absolutely everything that is gluten free, which turns out to be a lot here.

    Update: we've eaten here several times & Celiac hubby has not gotten sick. The food is good, though expensive, & the service has been flat out bad the last few times. But the sweet potato fries & organic bison burger are so good I can't totally write them off yet. They do now have packets of "Heinz Natural" HFCS free ketchup if you ask for it. I previously gave this location one star for being generally clueless. They seem to have dramatically improved and do indeed now have a dedicated frier for the fries (regular and sweet potato). I wish they had organic ketchup, they only have the Heinz HFCS filled junk. They do have organic bison and organic greens. I will update again after super sensitive hubby has eaten there a few times so we can gauge how safe they really are. But they have definitely taken steps in the right direction. And the bison burger in a bowl and fries were DELICIOUS. (They do have GF buns, Udi's I think, and a GF beer or two.)

    The waiter here was amazing! They told me they would do mine in a separate saute pan so it never touched the grill! He understood celiac disease and food allergies! He stressed to the kitchen the importance of my order (I could overhear it). Could handle the dairy allergy as well. Bonus: Udi's Gluten Free Buns!

    Ordered a hamburger on a GF bun. There is an extra charge for the GF bun, but it wasn't much extra. Food was good and they claimed to have a dedicated fryer. Service wasn't very fast, but this isn't a fast food restaurant.

    The burgers are really good. The buns can be a bit dry like most gf breads. You can have meat on lettuce if you like. The meat is really, really good. And they'll cook it super pink on the inside if you like med rare. Yum!I like to get extra cheese because they don't put much on. The fries are good if you're in the mood. They have a full bar but I haven't partook. Downside, they're often out of some toppings and the server often forgets to tell you. The burger shows up missing something and then the server tells you that item was out. It's frustrating because we could just pick a different topping if we'd known. This has happened many times.The burgers are great so we keep coming back.

    I LOVE being able to get a glass of wine with my burger. And to have it in a bun?!? Yes Please!! But at the Counter? No thanks. The buns are dry and brittle, every time. If Im ginna have a lettuce wrapped burger, I'll head over to In n' Out. The service is decent, and the other food options are ok. I bit on the pricey side. I'll go to The Counter as an easy option with friends.

    I was in Reston on business and don't usually eat out so I was very scared of getting glutened. They have a full gluten free menu and understand how to do gluten free right. I hadn't had a burger in almost a year - and to be able to get an absolutely awesome burger AND sweet potato fries... Heaven! I ate there 2 nights in a row - no issues.

    So yummy. Great gluten free bun, plus if you ask them for a gluten free specific menu and they don't have it, they will print one up for you. You have to be careful with the meat patties, only the turkey patty and beef patty are gluten free. I was going to order the vegan veggie patty, but it's not gluten free. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
