they have great GF buns or lettuce "buns". they have a seperate menu for gluten sensitive people, and have always done a good job with cooking the food safely with no cross contamination for people with celiac. i have celiac and i have never gotten sick here. they have burger and salad options, and fruit salad or chips for a side. the staff has always been great too! probably my favorite place to get a burger!!

Went here with some friends for dinner. They have a separate gluten-free menu when asked and the server was sure to note my allergy. While the fries are disappointingly not gluten-free the chips were very good. I like that they offer them and the fruit salad as a gluten-free side without an upcharge. The burger was just alright. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but I would go back if others wanted to.

I was never a fan of burgers but my bf took me here and now this is one of our favorite spots. The food is always great and they make sure to mark that I have Celiac/red flag the order so the kitchen knows to change their gloves and so on. There was one time I went where they accidentally gave me a regular bun because the waitress forgot to hit the gf bun option but it’s bound to happen when you go out to eat at least once (always check). Other than that the staff is usually attentive to my needs and I definitely recommend this establishment👌🏼

They seem out of practice at Gf due to covid distractions. Waitresses know some, but they have multiple people filling a simple order, and so what was supposed to be a bag of chips came out in a bowl. While all my attention was on the bun, manager ran out to take the chips. They’d been refried in dirty oil. I asked to see their gf buns. Sealed in plastic. Texture and flavor will make you think there has been an error. Really good burger and bun.

Buns unbelievable. Burger meat wonderful. If you order medium it is pink throughout. Rarer than most places, but great.

I didn’t see Red Bridge.

Be careful. I don’t know how they did it, but 30 minuets after eating a half of a GF burger and fruit I found myself horribly glutened for the second time.

Staff very friendly, well informed about gluten allergy and they make every effort to accommodate. No dedicated fryer so avoid fries if you are worried about cross contamination. Great choice if you are in downtown Raleigh.

Went right after they opened and haven't been back. Experience was embarrassing and my friends felt bad for choosing this place after my food finally got to the table. Really don't understand why this place is so popular.

Delicious burgers with a tasty gf bun, and some good sides to choose from (not fries). They carry a gf beer as well, lately the Omission Lager so it's a gluten removed beer. They likely have cider as well.

This place is fantastic! I accidently forgot to order a gf bun, and by the time I remembered they brought my meal out with a full gluten bun-ouch. I told them I was GF and they brought out a new plate with a GF bun at no charge. Very impressed and no food hangover!

So disappointed. You can have cow of buffalo only. No GF bun options and it was unbelievably expensive. 18$ to have buffalo cheese and bacon.

My second time there. The owner came out twice to check on my food and even to check about the mushrooms to make sure they would work for me. He went to the trouble to print out the ingredients. Very conscientious!

Burger was delicious. I have to give it four stars just because it is a little confusing. Their regular burger has gluten in the seasoning. When i ordered off the gf menu and ordered Gf bun and fruit the waitress asked if I wanted my burger GF too. Wouldn't that be a given? Make sure to say you want a gf BURGER too.

I am celiac and have eaten here once. They have gluten free buns and give you cape cod chips for the side. Only down side is the burger is too greasy for my taste and I wish they had more gf sides

They have a limited gluten free menu. Bagged chips or fruit for a side. My burger with lettuce “bun” was wonderful, but a dedicated fryer would take this place to the top. The server was knowledgeable and took good care to make sure all was well.

From the GF menu, I had a create-your-own-salad with lots of fixings and Angus beef patty as protein plus homemade lemon Greek dressing. It was so good! We’ll be back!

If getting take out, check your order before you leave. We got home and our gluten-free burger had a regular bun. (Good advice for any restaurant.)
