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.
Best burgers I have had. Very attentive to GF. The buns are even "branded" with GF". Highly recommended.
So disappointed! I've never been to a Wild Willys so I didn't know what to expect. While ordering I was still excited, based on the prices I thought it was going to be good quality and delicious burgers and sides. But it ended up being way overpriced garbage. The food was greasy and tasteless. And my boyfriend ordered mac and cheese as a side and it was legitimately Kraft macaroni and cheese out of the box. I'll never go back.
Wild Willy's in Worcester is one of my favorite places. They are incredibly accommodating of celiac disease, and the owner has told me to let him know if there's anything else I'd like to see there gluten free. They have all my favorites though! GF chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fish and chips, burgers, fries, etc. It's a must try!
The burgers are great & I've never had a reaction here. I'm only giving it three stars because the french fries are prepared in the fryer with glutened items, so not being able to complete the meal with fries is a huge negative for me. The Quincy location has gf fries.
This place is unbelievable with a great selection of gluten free food. They occasionally introduce "specials" such as mozzarella sticks, pigs in a blanket, cheese/bacon/potato balls, etc and they are all gluten free. Burgers are cooked as ordered. Service is great. Beware... not ALL Wild Willy's have gluten free items. Go to the one in Worcester. It's the best!
I have Celiacs Disease and the gluten free options have not made me bedridden! Sometimes it's hard to trust places and sometimes you have to take the blow if its cross contaminated, but this place is so delicious - gives me hope for future restaurants to accommodate for my disease. Love the food and love the atmosphere!
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.
Had a wonderful meal with my husband for a date night. Told them I was GF, and they were great. A very tasty GF bun for my awesome burger and the French fries were safe to eat too. Even their chicken fingers were GF (I will make sure to try them next time!) Also had an angry orchard cider to top it off. I loved going to Wild Willy's when I visited York, Maine as a teen so it's nice to have one closer to home too.
A small, pleasant place with a decent burger (on Udis) and GOOD fries (dedicated drier) They asked if my GF order was Celiac then informed the kitchen throughly. Side bonus: Bell & Evan chicken and Pineland Farms beef available. Downside: the food is good, the bathrooms are distinctly NOT handicap friendly.
I have to say, I've tried a lot of very decent gluten free burgers in my area (Red Robin and British Beer Company, to name a few) but I think this one may be the best one I've tried yet. The only bad thing I have to say about them is that the GF menu is not available online. I've now tried the "Willy" burger and the "Conestoga" and both were really really yummy. The rolls are particularly good, better than the standard Udi's rolls I've had other places. I'm not sure where they get them from, but I definitely hadn't had them anywhere else before. The fries are also GF - personally, I thought the fries were nothing special but put some salt on them and they're not bad. The burgers are the real draw for me - I will definitely be back many times. This would definitely be a good place to bring kids!
burgers? this is the spot! opened the door and the aroma said it all. menu is clearly marked. The staff here made me feel like eating GF was NORMAL. our party had; outlaw Burger, willy burger, sweet potato fries, root beer float all GF they have angry orchard hard cider 3 locations in MA, 1 location in Maine and New Hampshire
Don't know why this particular location takes gluten free product (chicken fingers, fries, etc) and makes then not gluten free. The reason i was told the onions aren't GF at the Worcester location is because the ladle touches the regular bread. You think they'd stop doing that, but at least they're good about cross contamination.
OUTSTANDING!! Great selection of gf items. All their batter used is gf. Buns were great as well as fries and onion rings. Haven't had a fast food onion ring in over 10 years. 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
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.
