Used to be great - unfortunately not gluten free friendly anymore. Fryer is no longer dedicated for fries. Made very clear that i was Celiac and was upcharged for salad which and they brought it out with croutons. Explained why I needed a new meal - which they didn't seem to understand why it was a big deal. It's too bad they used to be great one of the best GF restaurants in the area.

Very expensive for a poor experience. 5 guys would've been better

DONT COME HERE! Quite expensive and reckless! Ordered GF burger, server said they understand the importance of cross contamination etc , ended up bringing me out a regular burger/bun. I asked server if this is the GF one and she said she forgot so I had to wait another 20 minutes for new one while rest of table ate. Good thing I double checked. She kept up charge for GF bun and up charge for salad since fries are cross contaminated. Ended up spending 80$ for two burgers and two drinks

GF buns available - and ciders! The fryer is not dedicated GF so I had a salad for my side instead.

This place was amazing. As soon as I mentioned that I couldn't have cross contact with gluten, the waitress told me what things I definitely couldn't have, assured me that they had gf buns, and then double checked with the kitchen that the fryer was gf. The lamb burger and fries were phenomenal. What a treat. I would go back for sure.

Awesome burger place! I sat outside with my family and we enjoyed the atmosphere playing Jenga and hanging out. I ordered the burger with peanut butter, jalapeños, bacon and cheese and even had tasty fries too! One of the best meals I’ve had since my diagnosis. The server was wonderful and is GF herself so she totally understood my GF requirements. I had a delicious GF cider as well. Super great spot. Can’t wait to go back.

Staff knew the onions were caramelized in beer and the tots/fries shared a frier with onion rings, so they told me not to eat either of those depending on my sensitivity. Gluten free bun was outstanding though the burger itself was also great. No gluten free beer option but they do have cocktails to choose from. I will go back for sure!

Love coming here for dinner. My husband has celiac and likes that he can get a gf bun and beer! Their gf buns are so good that I get them as well so that he can share my burger with me. The staff is knowledgeable and did a good job with warning us away from the carmelized onions which have beer in them.

No specific gluten free menu, but the staff was incredibly knowledgeable about what was gluten free. They carry gluten free rolls and verified that they have a separate fryer for the french fries and tater tots. Was able to share the delicious bbq tater tot appetizer, enjoy an amazing burger on a nice gluten free roll, and had a tasty gluten free cider to go with it. As other reviews stated, service is a little slow, but the food is worth the wait and it is a very cool place!

I was so excited to have a grass fed burger, gf beer, gf bun AND fries. They have a dedicated driver for gf fries and tater tots. My burger was amazing and the bun was nice a soft and didn't fall apart.
