    Wow! I can’t say enough about this place. The employees were SO nice and told us a lot about the GF foods they have and where we can buy them, where applicable. They continued to check in with us to ensure we were having a great experience. My kids had the chicken fingers, which is something they can’t often get eating out. They said they were great. Fries were excellent, too. Nothing non-GF goes in the fryer.

    Staff specifically ask if you have an allergy when ordering. The best gluten free burger I’ve ever had!

    Dedicated gluten-free fryer! Nothing gluten goes inside (nope, not even their chicken nuggets or chicken tenders...those are deliciously gluten-free too!). The french fries are so crispy and so good. Say you're ordering gluten-free and they will be extra careful with your food. They have Udi's buns or will do a lettuce wrap for your burger. Portions are huge, ingredients are fresh, and there are a ton of combinations.

    Decided to stop based on FMGF reviews. Glad I did! Best gluten free turkey burger I have ever had hands down. Lots of choices for burgers and toppings. Great find! Will go back again when nearby.

    Don’t let this tiny place fool you into thinking it’s not safe. I have gone here multiple times and have never gotten sick. I’m always impressed that such a tiny location can make fantastic burgers with gluten free buns and still make it safe for me. I’m a loyal customer and appreciate that I can feel like one of the gang while ordering a gourmet burger with wild toppings! Plus gluten free fries!!!!

    The staff was knowledgeable and careful. Dedicated fryer! Also, they had buns but I wouldn't suggest getting it as it wasn't great. A little pricey but for French fries in a chill setting, worth it. I plan to go back!

    I'm in love with this place! The burgers are monstrous, fries are great, unique drink selection and I'm in love with the GF cookies when they have them. Sometimes they run out fast and won't have any for days.

    Very delicious safe food. It's kinda pricy but they use very good ingredients. Grass fed beef, bison, fresh veggies, ext. not so fond of the drink selection and it's kinda small. A couple picnic tables outside literallyand one small counter inside. Very good portion sizes.

    Use to love this place, But recently changed their GF buns, and they are HORRIBLE! much better off w/a lettuce wrap. Still like that I can indulge in cheese fries here. Thats probably All I'll order from here. Sad old buns were much better.

    Stopped there with my husband and daughter to have something to eat. They offer burgers on different types of buns (wheat, egg, gluten free and pretzel roll.) you can also get it wrapped in a Boston lettuce leaf. They offer cookies that are gluten free too.

    I have been here several times over the past year, and the food is fantastic. The staff and owner are very knowledgable and it's great to not have to worry. I also can not have beef so the other meat options are awesome. My only issue with the place is the length of time it takes to get your food. I had one really bad experience with wait time but that has not happened again. I highly recommend ordering your food ahead of time online.

    Great options for those with Celiac. Good buns. Knowledgeable staff. I hope they continue to be busy, so they can upgrade their location to accommodate dining in. We will be back!

    Absolutely amazing! The buns are extremely thick. The restaurant recommends you eat the entire bun the first time. When you come back, you can decide if that was too much bun and want them to cut it down.

    Found this on FMGF and decided to check it out. The "boss" was amazing. He let us sample all their GF options (chicken nuggets, mozzarella sticks and a drink). He explained all their procedures, showed us the products he uses and we felt very safe eating there. The burgers were yummy too!

    They have Udi's brand gluten free buns - just ok, but nice to have the option. And the fries are safe to eat! The burger was good.

    Really, a burger with a gluten free bun and on top of it near my office in the burbs...comeon. This place rocks, the only downfall is there is no where to sit (they have 6 counter seats) and they are making plans to have seating outside, which will be awesome in the summer time. They charge for the gluten free bun making your burger almost an $8 burger but it's a nice sized burger and if you went to nicer place for a burger (like capital grille) they probably would charge you more without the bun. The staff is friendly and the owner of this establishment eats gluten free and has a good story to how he began this business. I see good things happening for this little (but huge for those with an intolerance to wheat) place. Will be back there soon.
