First of all one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. They had a delicious gf bun which is nice because not all burger places have that and a burger is much better with a bun then without a bun. The fries are cooked in a separate frier which makes me have no worries of cross contamination here. I totally recommend eating here.

Excellent burger with GF bun dedicated fryer. Also sweet potato fries gf too. They let you know re sauces so no special sauce on the burger but still great food, quick service and knowledgeable staff.

Had the shrimp sandwich on a gluten free bun. It's been 2 hours and I'm not sick, so thats a bonus. The fries are gf but they said there could be cross contamination, so we stayed away from them. They were super busy. We got a quick bite to go, didn't really look the full menu over.

Had a wonderful meal! Ordered the Bills Burger on GF bun ***NO special sauce*** and it was so tasty! Also, I asked about fries and they said they are fried separately so I got them and had no issues! My waitress was very knowledgeable! Great experience :)

I liked this place. I do not think the gluten free bun was Udi’s (although they are good, too). I am not celiac. I had the sweet potato waffle fries and the “Big Cat” burger on a gluten-free bun. I had no adverse reaction and it was very good.

NO DEDICATED FRIER. Service was very slow. Food was good, nothing special. Udi's buns.

Not only was the service poor, but my Celiac kiddo got super sick. We explained the needs and they assured us that everything was safe. Burger arrived with GF bun and French fries. Asked again to confirm it was all safe and got an eye roll and “I’ll check.” Now I’m walking around NYC with kid who needs a bathroom every 5 minutes.

My experience at this restaurant was abysmal. I ordered take out with a group of ten and somehow the waiter only put in half of our order even after I asked him to read it back to me. We then had to go back two more times after they said our order was ready because they had forgotten various items. I explicitly said I had celiac disease and asked to avoid cross contamination. I got a turkey burger on a gluten free bun. The waiter told me multiple times I would be fine but of course I got extremely sick. This restaurant was incredibly disappointing and I would NOT recommend.

Was really looking forward to visiting after reading reviews. Unfortunately, the dedicated GF fryer was broken. Burger was decent. Not a lot of choices. Burgers and fries only GF items. Will try somewhere else on my next visit to NYC.

Don't trust the food here if you're very sensitive or celiac. Gluten free buns but the waiter wasn't very helpful and the salad I ordered without croutons had a TON of crouton crumbs mixed in. Could have ruined my day in the city if I hadn't noticed.

Great burger and fries(they used a separate fryer)! Our waiter asked if I had an allergy and I let them know I had Celiac. They clearly labeled my plate. We went around 12pm for lunch on New Years Eve and service was super quick and our waiter was very friendly. Definitely recommend!

Good food! Great burgers and salads. We have a Gluten/Wheat allergy, and our food was kept safe. We did not get sick. Also one member of our family has a severe Peanut/Tree Nut Allergy. They reassured us no Peanuts, No Nuts. It was great! Fries and grill uses Soy Oil. We were very happy with our dinner. Our waiter, Keith, was very kind, caring, helpful, he spoke with the Chef about our food allergies. The restaurant is a two floor (ground floor and basement levels for seating). Keep in mind it is also a bar and has loud music. It has subway access right to the downstairs dining area and bar until 11:00 pm. Thank you!

Delicious burgers with gluten free bun and the fry's were done in a separate fryer. And when it came out it my plate was marked👍👍👍👍

Food took about 30+ minutes for two cheeseburgers. There was no bacon on my mom's burger like she asked. I got two bites into mine before realizing the bottom bun was not gluten free. They switched the bottom buns of my mom and I. Took 20 minutes to remake my burger. They were not even very good burgers unfortunately. When all was said and done, we were very understanding, and they charged us for everything, including the bacon. Never again!

I gave it 3 stars because it was a gluten free meal. The hamburger reminded us of what you get in the cafeteria. It was eat-able but not great.

This place takes 'allergies' seriously. Burgers with GF bun and we asked if they could fry specially cooked fries for my son. They did! Thank you. Happy and will certainly be back. I wish other establishments would follow suit.

I wasn't sure about this place but our server was very knowledgable and told us they take allergies very seriously. I had a salad with shrimp and sweet potato fries. My son had a burger gf and fries. They offered to make the fries celiac friendly as typically they are not gf because of cc in the fryer. When our food came out it had allergy stickers all over it so this definitely made me feel that they got it. Also they had several cider options which was nice! I was impressed and it's reasonably priced.

Me and my friend (eats gluten) ordered everything was fine.. Then I got given a gluten burger... The manager didn't apologise and made me feel it was my fault and gave me a lecture! When one of his servers said it was the gluten free meal (only the original server apologised!) spent all night throwing up ruined my night! Never go there again!

Ignore all bad reviews. Literally the best burger I've had in my entire life, even before I knew I had celiac. So good I came back a second time in one weekend--the first time I tried it! I had the onion soup patty melt and asparagus... OMG. Amazing. And my bf had a normal bun and it was falling apart, but my GF bun was delicious, not soggy, and stayed together no problem. Also, the service the first time was just okay, but still cautious about GF! The second time, our server Cory was phenomenal. He was not only knowledgable about GF stuff, but he was a good time and just the right amount of attentive without being annoying. 10/10, would do again.

Gluten free bun. No specific gluten free menu. Had the Fat Cat! Do not get the special sauce (contains gluten). They recommend a salad as a side without croutons. I had cesar salad and finished off with a chocolate milk shake. Hard to tell what other options could be safe, but the staff seems knowledgeable and willing to help with questions.

They don’t have gluten free options—not even a gluten free bun. Not sure if management has changed or if there is new staff but they couldn’t help me.

The staff was knowledgeable about gluten. Great burgers with gluten free buns, plus I was able to have fries with confidence they were in a separate fryer. First time in 5 months since need to be gluten free that had fries! Yummy! Host Vincent went out of his way to make sure that my friends and I who were celebrating our mutual milestone birthday had a fun time along with great food and service. Would recommend to anyone!

They have gluten free buns and they are delicious! You can get any burger but the salad does have croutons and dressing that isn't gluten free but our server was very helpful. He made sure everything came out gluten free. Loved the burger!

No gluten free fryer, but the burger was excellent, and when we told the waitress that it was for an allergy she had the manager handle the order and deliver it to the table.

I was at Harrah's for a conference and needed to grab a quick dinner. Being gluten and dairy free it was a challenge. However this worked out great. I sat at the bar and ordered the chopped salad and a price of grilled chicken. I ask for no croutons and no cheese. The bar tender immediately ask if I had any allergies and went out back to talk to the cook for me. The salad and chicken were great and I greatly appreciated the help from the bartender.

I was in NY for three days and ate here twice!!! Their burgers were delicious and they have gluten free buns (contain egg), celiac friendly as they are wrapped. I also have a dairy and soy allergy. Had a burger with LTP, bacon and guacamole!! Servers were knowledgeable and took great care of us. Fryer is not dedicated, side items are limited...so...just get a double and eat that giant delicious burger!!!

Be aware depending on your waiter/bartender there are different gluten free options. As a celiac I wouldn't trust them.

I ordered the mushroom and Swiss burger and it was delicious. Quick friendly. service at the bar. Their fries are not gluten free though. The burger was generous and the bun was tasty!

The food was generally good. Nothing spectacular but it tasted good and came as described. Our server, on the other hand, was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and gave us great information, it helped that he is gluten sensitive as well so he gets it. I had a veggie burger and the spinach dip, which I ate with veggies. Why do you ask? Shouldn't I have eaten it with chips? Nope. The chips are fried in the same fryer as the onion rings, so that was a no go. The server confirmed it for us. Also, he brought us out the list of ingredients f the veggie burger to show us that it was, in fact, gluten free. All in all I would recommend this place. Definitely make reservations via Open Table or you may have a wait. Oh, and there are a good amount of tv screens so you will be set for all sporting events. Hope this helps!

Great burgers - I had the turkey burger on a gluten free bun. Gluten-free sweet potato fries, but fried in the same oil as regular fries. Gluten-free beer (St. Peter's Sorghum Beer). They also offer a gluten-free milkshake for dessert.
