    Came here with a really big group for a work event. We'd informed them when we made the reservation that we have a few people with gluten allergies, and the staff was great about making sure we got what we needed and informing us if they brought out a shared appetizer that we should avoid. I loved having a burger (gf bun) and fries.

    The service was great! I was able to have fries! They offered to make my burger with a lettuce wrap or the gluten free flat bread. I choose the flat bread it wasn't bad. I came back recently and they said it got to busy for them to have a seperate fryer. The food was still great.

    I’ve brought my Nima sensor in and twice found gluten in my “celiac friendly” burger. They do carry fully GF beer, though...

    Had 5280 Chicken Breast on GF flatbread and fries. No trouble with either. Great place. Busy when we were there and waitress still took time to address GF issues.

    Had chili cheese fries, delicious! unfortunately when my burger came out, had regular bun. I asked right away if it was gluten free (already knowing it wasn't because it looked the same like my friends burger and they have GF FLATBREAD, not buns. The flatbread is delicious. They immediately took it back and said they would recook the entire burger. So I got the burger, but after others were done eating 4 stars for wasting time, they comped my burger, food is good and not too many complaints because they tried! My friends loved their burger. Be specific up front that you have celiac, don't just request gf option.

    Good food. I’m not a burger person so I had chicken breast instead of a burger (which is a normal substitution on the menu). Dedicated fryer for fries. They were okay but not the best fries I ever had. They serve a gf flatbread, but since I decided to chow down on fries I didn’t end up eating much of the flatbread.

    just ate there. knowledgeable staff. I'm celiac and gluten free. I got a little glutened with a brain fog from the fries, but I'm not sure if they made those in the right fryer. it was busy and maybe too busy to assure gluten and dairy free food. I might try it again if I'm in a pinch but since I'm not feeling well after eating there, I will probably steer clear.

    Excellent burgers and celiac friendly. I eat fries so rarely, due to cross contamination concerns, but 5280 has a dedicated frier... So no worries! Crispy brussel sprouts are super tasty.

    Fries were good and so nice not to worry ! Waitress double checked specific items for me. Flat bread was ok, really. Angus burger was excellent. Good quality beef!

    Really good burgers! The flatbread was good too, not your usual burger bun but I didn't feel second classed at all. So nice to have really good fries and a good atmosphere too. Go here if you're in town! Plus, alcoholic milkshakes and homemade ice cream in their store next door... we may need to come back for those...

    Highly recommend. The flatbread that it comes on isn't outstanding, but to have fries and peace of mind when eating is worth it. The burger itself was pretty good too. Server was very knowledgeable.

    My first visit was awesome! I had a chicken burger and it was great! Loved the GF bread. My second trip was less awesome. The chicken burger didn't have the same WOW factor. Good place for GF burgers and fries.

    We ordered the street tacos which were pretty good. We also ordered the "perfect burger". I did not care for it. Its served on cardboard thin flat "bread" and there is a $4 yo charge for it!!!!! It was horrible, didn't even eat. However, the tacos or the bite of burger did not make us sick.

    Ate here twice on the trip with no issues. Staff was knowledgeable and double checked the proper fryer was used for the great fries. I am celiac so it was great to find a place that trained staff that understood.

    Great BBQ grilled chicken sandwich on GF flatbread. Dedicated fryer for fries and a couple of good local cider options. The bartender was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful with GF options. Overall, a perfect after work dinner venue.

    Great food. Fries were awesome! Sorry the flatbread is a minus one star. Very bland. Burger was tasty, bacon was very sparing for $2.00. Great milkshake. I'm celiac and had no issues with reaction after the meal!!

    Safe burger and fries back in March 2016 -- dedicated fryer and knowledge of cross-contamination. Their buns aren't safe for me (I forget whether because of egg, dairy, or both), but the burger was good, as were the safe toppings.

    Delicious! Yes, it's on flatbread but it was SO good. All sauces are GF and they use a separate fryer for the French fries.

    Great burgers and fries.. Pretty messy but worth it. Two options for burger, either a potato flatbread or lettuce wrap. I give it a 5 because I feel really comfortable eating there. Also, has beer options.

    Server was knowledgable about celiac. Separate fryer for fries. Onion staws are not GF but if you choose a burger option with the onion straws they will swap it with caramelized onions. Burger was served on a potato flour flatbread. Messy to eat, but was delicious!!! Yummy ice cream shakes there as well!

    Great gluten free options here. They have a separate fryer for the fries, make their own flatbread and ice cream. The staff was really friendly and offered great suggestions. Check this place out when you are in the area

    The burgers are tasty, the gluten-free flatbread holds up well to the task and the fries are fried in their own oil. The menu doesn't indicate which burger toppings have gluten, so be sure to work with your server to navigate that.
