    So disappointed the fries are not gluten free here. They were at the other Wild Willy's I went to in Maine. They have enough friers they should dedicate one to being GF.

    Was surprised to learn the fries are not gluten free, but understandable. The guacamole and peppers and onions are not gluten free though and I'm really confused as to why. They have no signage about their gluten free options and by asking I opened a Pandora's box of all the odd things that are usually gluten free in every other restaurant.

    I asked if the ice cream (giffords) was gf and the woman wasn't 100% sure so she went and brought the ingredients label out for me to read, without any prompting from me. Then she mentioned they had gone through gf training. Love that!!! Great burger! Just wish they had a separate fryer so I could enjoy the fries :)

    Great attention to GF. No hesitation on the question or order. Fries are not GF. The burger bun was toasted slightly and was delicious.

    Good burgers, especially the grass fed ones. The buns used to be heavy kind of like a biscuit but I went recently and now they're much lighter & tastier!

    I have no idea why someone would say a replacement product for a bread item is "too bready". What does that even mean? The place was great and very accommodating. The. selection was excellent. Personally I would rather have a review that tells me how safe it is and what kind of options there are than nebulous nonsense.

    Great, great GF burgers. They are very knowledgable about what is safe for celiacs, and for those who are just " gluten sensitive". That being said, in order to have your GF burger to be safe for a celiac, there are limitations such as not putting your bun on the grill (needs to be toasted) and only certain toppings are safe because of cross contamination from the spoons. (No sautéed onions!) I have mixed feelings, because when Wild Willy's was in Portland, they had a special GF section on their grill, and ALL toppings were available. BUT, here in York, the French fries are made in safe friers and are delicious!! Also, when we were there, the white vinegar on the tables was distilled, and safe! Yum! The one thing we really noticed though was an attitude from the front staff, possibly because of ordering GF. Very uncomfortable. All in all, my husband and I will probably be back if we're down there again.

What a treat this was to experience great gf comfort food. I rarely write reviews but I had to get the word out so others can try this place. Enjoy

    The best gluten free burger restaurant I've ever been to. Staff are so helpful, friendly, and knowledgable about GF and Celiac. Burgers are always made just the way you asked. Gluten free bun is the best I've ever had. French fries and onion rings are gluten free. They literally have everything you could ask for. Cannot recommend Wild Willy's enough. A+

    Excellent base product, my friends have been coming here for a while as the burgers are such a high quality and very reasonably priced. The gluten free bun was fantastic I'd love to know what brand/where they got it because it was great. The restaurant has a separate gluten free menu and was very easy to follow what was gluten free. I'd definitely go back!

    The burgers are great and they advertise as gluten free. The front end staff, however, has had an attitude each time my family has been here and has ordered a celiac meal. I know that it takes a cook's attention to make a celiac meal more than a normal meal and it might be a challenge when the kitchen is busy, but IF THEY ADVERTISE THAT THEY ARE GLUTEN FREE THEN THEY SHOULD BE PREPARED TO DEAL WITH IT WITHOUT MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT! Never a good feeling when you see the cook roll his eyes and complain to the front staff when a celiac order comes in. My wife and kids did not choose to have Celiacs and we are grateful whenever a restaurant offers them any option to eat out but we are choosing not to eat here anymore.

    Very disappointed. You really can only have a burger. They told me fries and other sides were not gluten free. The one in Worcester MA is much better....fries and onion rings were gluten free there. I'm hoping they will figure things out and be more like others in the chain.

    They offer a GF bun for their burgers, which is definitely more than most places are doing. The GF menu was pretty much limited to that when I went though, maybe it has improved at this point. I paid a lot more than I was expecting for a burger that wasn't that impressive, and there really weren't options for sides. I was a little disappointed after stopping in because of the huge "Gluten Free Menu" sign outside. The manager also made a huge deal about their policy to not cross contaminate, said that only he could handle GF, put on rubber gloves and then put a GF branded bun on the burger and put it in a bag. I know he meant well, but it was sort of a scene. I will say that I'm impressed they're trying, and I know a lot of gluten tolerant people who really like their food, but unfortunately it isn't enough to make me go back.

    I love this restaurant! It's so tasty. They have a huge selection of gluten-free items - burgers, buns, beer, fries, onion rings, fried fish, chicken tenders, chicken sandwiches, and more! They have dedicated GF fryers. There's a big sign that clearly states what foods can be made gluten-free. The staff is very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, and made sure to separate it from my boyfriend's normal burger on the tray. They clearly mark that your burger is GF on the inside and outside of the wrapper, as well as on the rather delicious bun itself, so you know that you are being served the correct thing. I had a great restaurant experience there! I'd highly recommend it.
