I give them credit for trying but as far as options they are very limited. Many items you would think to be gluten free are not. Such as the salt, cheese, and even grilled chicken breast are not gluten free. If we had not asked for a sandwich with a gluten free bun we would have not known about these things. If we would have order a grilled chicken salad the meal would have not been gluten free and we wouldn't have known till after having a reaction.

I like that they are trying, but the staff has no idea what they are doing when GF is involved. we have tried a couple of times to eat there and have had to walk the staff through making our food. last time they made my son's food 3 times before it was done right. when I finally received mine, it was not gluten free(they put the wrong cheese on it which was a sauce with wheat in it instead of sliced cheddar) luckily I caught it. but even so, we both got sick after eating there. we will not be back.

Listed on this site as gluten free and suggested on travel celiac site. I asked for GF menu/items and there was none. All the guy said was we have GF bun. I asked if items listed as GF on their website was correct. He didn't know, didn't bother to ask anyone, was rude, and defiantly not wanting to find out. Since I didn't want to get sick, the 5 of us left!!

Staff was very knowledgeable of gluten sensitivities and have a button to inform members to change gloves and even told them personally. Be sure to order fries with no salt for gluten free.

The person at the counter was great! I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and fries. The burger itself tasted great. Unfortunately the bun literally disintegrated as I picked it up to eat it. It was a very dry bun. Extremely dry and just fell apart. The fries were ok. They were pretty bland. I used quite a bit of salt, but the salt wouldn’t stick to them. I appreciate they are accommodating people who are gluten free, but I feel like they could find a better bun and figure something out to make the fries a little better. It was good, but not great.
