GF burgers and sandwiches are very good. They also offer the Beyond burger which is GF and vegan along with regular and vegan cheese. They have a dedicated GF fryer but you need to tell them to use it if you order fries.

Our daughter is a celiac. Thanks to this App and good references we have ordered her GF Cheeseburger with fries. Staff was very experienced and from his reaction on our questions we were sure that they are very well informed about right preparation of GF meals (dedicated fryer for fries only etc.). According to our daughter the GF burger was excellent!!! ...and luckily without any reaction (because she is extremely sensitive to gluten contamination). For adults they have an option of approx. 5 GF bears as well!

So the first time I ate here months ago, I didn’t get sick at all. I got a GF bun on my burger and fries that I guess were cooked in a dedicated fryer (as they told me). However, I ordered takeout just recently and alerted them of my celiac disease. They assured me it would come with a GF bun (which it did) and that the fries would be cooked in a dedicated fryer. It even had these notes in big red letters all over the order ticket stapled to the bag. But when I brought it home and tested the fries with my Nima Gluten Detecting Device, it found gluten in the fries. So either they lie about having a dedicated fryer or these fries were not cooked in a dedicated fryer. Either way I would have gotten very sick. That isn’t the worst part. I tested the bun which was clearly a GF bun and the Nima device found gluten in the bun also. Clear evidence of serious cross contamination in the kitchen but not sure why or how. Eat here with caution and take all of those positive reviews below with a grain of salt (or gluten if you are into puns). Not cool 5 Napkin. Not cool.

I had such a great experience here. My server was very knowledgeable and could immediately tell me all of the gf items on the menu as well as all of the gf protocols/procedures that they take in the kitchen (which includes fully cleaning the grill before making my burger.) They take really great care and it’s also nice that they had a gf fryer. I had the truffle burger and it was amazing! The cheese and truffle butter soaked into the gf bun and burger, making both juicy and delicious. The burger was also cooked to a perfect medium which is what I asked for. Will definitely go back again!

I am giving this place a 5 star but there was a mix up that I had to catch or it would have been bad. Loved the burger and the GF bun held up so well to the lovely juiciness (yes, you will need 5 napkins). The sweet potato fries were delicious and the service was excellent and put up with our silliness (thank you Silas). They were accommodating when I asked for the brownie sundae without the brownie but unfortunately the kitchen made a mistake and included the brownie bits. Silas took care of it immediately.

Was a little worried as the male host was clueless about "Celiac" and "cross contamination". Sat at the bar hoping to talk to a manager and met James the bartender. James kept this family of four here as his knowledge of celiac, gf, cross contamination and allergy friers assured us that our Celiac daughter could eat here worry free! Drinks by James are fantastic with some Stanley Cup hockey! Dinner should be amazing! One gf tuna burger, one gf avocado ranch burger,one gf allergy waffle fries and one gf regular fries. The gluten flouting in the family ...not sure what they ordered.

Best gf burger I have tasted. Wait staff all knew their stuff and there's a separate fryer for fries.

It's only their burgers which are gf on the menu but I asked if they could do any of the beef burgers as a chicken burger and this was no issue! Are here 4 times in my 1 week trip

Went here based on the location to theatre and prior reviews listed below. Music was terribly loud and we were unable to have conversation over this music. GF burger and fries were average at best. Would not recommend.

So good! They are able to make any of their burgers GF and are also able to make a couple other dishes gluten free. The staff was very knowledgable and was even attentive enough to let me know which dishes my family had ordered I could and could not sample. The GF bun was one of the best I've had and the burger was DELICIOUS as were the fries! Would definitely come back!

Best burger I've ever had. Amazing Gf rolls. Great separate gf fries. Didn't make me sick (and I'm very sensitive). They don't have a separate gf menu but wait staff was knowledgeable. Don't go here if your not looking for a burger because they don't offer much else other than very tastey burgers.

They have gf buns, but no gf menu. They also say they will use a separate fryer for gf fries. There is nothing that indicates that the fries were cooked separately when your plate comes out, so you have to have faith in the kitchen. It made me a little nervous.

First time eating here and it went great! Nothing on the menu is marked gf but the staff was very knowledgable. Almost all items can be made gf. Gf buns were delish! I had the loaded french fries and the bacon cheddar burger. Didn’t get sick. Definitely will go back!

A great burger place! Staff are friendly and seem knowledgeable. I had a burger in a gf bun and fries which I was told were in a dedicated fryer for fries only. I’ve been there twice during our stay and have been fine each time. Only dropped one star as like most places in nyc it’s a big pricey.
