    This is the only Five Guys I have ever gone to. And I have gone with my son (who is also celiac) and my daughter (who is not) several times. Not only are they always careful about separating and putting on new gloves regarding our orders, they are super friendly. I don't know what they use for their training or hiring practices, but more places should adopt them. Never had a cc issue, always top notch customer service, and delicious food to boot. Worth the price. Really love these guys.

    I'm not one for Ethnic restaurants, especially Middle Eastern (I don't know why, just not my favorite tastes). But, I found myself in San Diego without my enzymes that I need for CC issues that many restaurants have when serving both gluten and gluten free foods. I read up on this restaurant and saw all of their ingredients (except for their bread) do not contain any gluten. Out of safety sake, I went here. It was for lunch, so I wasn't excited about the $$$ designation, but I planned on sucking it up. First, I got a nice seat outside, which I was happy to see they offered. I ordered the chicken with black cherry dish. Prices were reasonable for lunch. I asked to keep the menu, as I planned on ordering something to go. I am a BIG eater and typical "lunch" portions NEVER fill me up. I was surprised to see a nice salad included, so used to a la carte everything at restaurants. And then they brought out my main course EXTREMELY fast. HOLY COW, the portion was, by far, the largest I have seen for any lunch, and most dinners. The chicken was tender and it all was delicious. I even brought some back to the hotel (which I promptly ate as soon as got in there, so not sure what my point was.) My belly was FULL and I did not get sick. Waitress was super great, and someone else (manager?owner?) came by to check on everything during. Although, dinner prices are more expensive, you can seriously get two meals in one. Trust me on this. I will ABSOLUTELY return here.

    We've been to both Walker Bros and Egg Harbor. Of Wildberry, my son said "These are the best gf pancakes yet!" I would have to agree. He didn't even use syrup. :) We had great, fast, service, too.

    I'm sure it's different every year, but last year was amazing. The ticket price is totally worth all the free samples you get, both to take home and to try there. We left stuffed.

    Two things I didn't notice before going there. One, the $$$ and, two, that is was byob. So once I got over the fact that I wasn't going to have a glass of wine, and that all entrees were between $17-$25, I was fine. I believe the woman who took our order was the owner and she was, indeed, very gf knowledgeable. I get nervous at these smaller, quiet, places, but no need. Most items are naturally gf and she tells you what isn't (mostly some appetizers.) She recommended the duck and, although, I didn't WANT to order the most expensive thing, I did. And so happy. It was wonderful. Portions are alittle smaller than I prefer, but I have an unnaturally large appetite. Plus, the food was so good. The person I went with thoroughly enjoyed her pad Thai and kept saying how full she was after, so.....I will return next time I'm in town.
