    Best burgers and fries! Very knowledgeable staff. Love that they serve at the UNC football games, I just ask for mine with no bun there, but at their normal location they have the best gluten free buns I have tasted!

    Love this place. They are fast and knowledgeable and kind about celiac. They change gloves and make sure you are happy. They have a dedicated fryer too.

    Awesome burgers, fries and sweet potato fries! not much seating, so be aware of that if you come during a busy time of day.

    Absolutely delicious! Many gluten-free options and I've never had a problem after eating here. Burgers are very yummy and the fries taste of rosemary. Very casual place but great place to go when the weather is nice to sit outside. My brother and I go here every time he's in town. So good!

    Great Burger!! My son has numerous food allergies including Gluten and he loves this place. If you have dairy allergies just make sure you ask them not to butter the bun.

    So good. Great burger on a nice GF bun. Add a side of sweet potato fries. When it's busy you might have to wait, but just hop over to Beer Study for a drink!

    Al carries Imagine That Gluten Free rolls, which are awesome, but has perfected the art of a hamburger, simple or complex, with a side of brown sugar and cinnamon dusted sweet potato fries and a mix of dr pepper and cheerwine, I've died and woke up in southern heaven.
