Have gone in twice. The first time was great, manager came and talked to me about my order and was great with making sure the staff took precautions with my meal. The second time however, ordering something that should be super simple to keep gluten free, I got glutened. Obviously depends on who is working on how much they care about dietary restrictions and allergens. I won’t chance it again.

Very limited gf menu and you have to cross reference a book to figure out what you can eat. It narrows down to just a handful of items.

They have a BINDER with menu items' ingredients. They only had baked potatoes for my Celiac daughter. WHY is it on the list?

As part of our commitment to you, we provide the most current allergen information available from our food suppliers on eight common allergens plus gluten and added monosodium glutamate (MSG), so that our guests with food allergies can make informed food selections. Please be aware that during normal kitchen operations involving shared cooking and preparation areas, including common fryer oil, the possibility exists for food items to come in contact with other food products. Due to these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee that any menu item can be completely free of allergens."

i have been here several times and they are always very accommodating. one time I got the quesadilla burger and they willingly made it with corn tortillas instead of flour. their burger have good flavor so eating it without the bun isnt so bad.

I checked the allergens menu before I went and I realized I could really only have a side of fries, the bone-in wings, or chips and salsa. But, I went and ended up getting the Classic Dip Trio appetizer and it was pretty good!

I’d give it 3 1/2 stars. The menu has GS to mark gluten sensitive (I’ll attach photos), but the menu also mentions shared oil in the fine print, so those marks are misleading if you’re celiac. They have fries and stuff with tortilla chips marked as gluten sensitive even though they’re fried in the same fryer as everything else, so I opted to stay away from anything fried just in case. The waiter did say nothing was guaranteed, but the chefs are very careful and change their gloves. I got the grilled chicken breast which comes with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. It was pretty good, although maybe the most boring thing on the menu. Haha. The mashed potatoes were very good, but there was a “skin” on the potatoes like the purée had sat for a while and dried out a little. I didn’t get sick—just a little indigestion after, but no big reaction. Overall, I’d come here again if a family event was there, but I wouldn’t choose it myself because of the fairly limited options and misleading Gluten Sensitive marks.

I'm newly diagnosed. I called today because I wanted French fries and unfortunately they did not have a dedicated fryer.
