Eat here regularly, no issues. Burgers and fries are great! No issues ordering GF with curbside pickup. The patio is a nice option when the weather is nice.

Bru Burger is by far my favorite restaurant in Lexington for GF options! I eat there at least once or twice a week, and no matter the waiter/waitress they always take my gluten allergy seriously and know what exactly is GF on the menu (or how to make something GF). It’s obvious they’ve been well trained on the GF options and measures to prevent contamination in their establishment. Most importantly, the food is delicious, and I’m not reduced to only a patty on lettuce.. I can get an actual burger with the bun and fries!

They offer UDI’s buns for all of their burgers, and the fries are fried in their own separate fryer so they are legitimately GF (yay!). You can’t go wrong with the “bru burger” burger option (bacon, taleggio cheese, tomato jam, and mayo).

The gorgonberry pecan salad is EXCELLENT and doesn’t have any gluten-containing ingredients that have to be modified, but I always tell them about my allergy anyway and they make a point of letting the kitchen know so it is handled separately of any croutons used in other salads.

I can’t say enough good things about Bru Burger as a GF option for Lexington folks!

Ate a burger with GF bun and side of fruit. Tasted good. I spoke with a manger when I arrived about gluten ingredients and cross contamination. They were very accommodating. My burger was cooked in a clean skillet and not the grill. As far as I could tell there were not dedicated toppings for making the GF burger so they used all new produce and condiments at my request. They also changed gloves, etc. The dedicated GF fryer was off limits for the day because something with gluten accidentally contaminated it. I was glad they shared that info. No reaction.

This place had great burgers with GF buns. They also have a dedicated fryer and the best French fries we’ve ever had. We were very glad we gave them a try.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while in town for Keeneland. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable in their gluten free menu. I had their turkey burger and french fries. It was nice that they had a dedicated fryer so that I could enjoy a rare treat of fries. We will be back the next time in Lexington.

Had a great experience here! They make their fries in a gluten-free fryer, there's a separate gluten free menu, and the gluten free bun was actually quite tasty. On top of that, the food was DELICIOUS!
