I asked about gluten allergy protocols and the cash register employee was thoroughly confused. I explained cross contamination and asked if they could change their gloves before preparing (and explained that I can get sick from even a drop of gluten) and she wasn’t sure if changing gloves was something they could do. She asked another employee who said okay, but I didn’t get a good feeling based on the lack of general awareness. I’m a silent celiac and don’t know when I’ve been glutened but this place did not make me feel comfortable.

They didn’t have menu items marked to indicate gluten free, so i was stuck asking questions about different ingredients. I would not recommend for a celiac. Probably fine for gluten sensitivity.

They have Udi GF buns and lettuce wraps, and seem well-versed in what can be made gf and what can't. The food is good, though I saw no desserts that are gf. Likewise, they don't have a dedicated fryer.

There is no way to avoid cross contamination here. Not safe for people with celiac despite allergen menu and gf buns

Was a pleasant dining experience and the staff knew about cross contamination in the fryer, but I started having cramps and stomach pain a few hours after eating here and am still down bad the day after. I ordered the pimento burger with a side of the pickled veggies.

I went here for lunch and ordered a burger in a lettuce wrap. I explicitly told them that I am celiac and they said that that was no problem. About an hour after eating, I got extreme stomach pain and it has only gotten worse since. I do not recommend eating here if you are celiac.

I've learned that if I explicitly mention to them that I have Celiac Disease when I order they do a great job of keeping my food safe. I haven't gotten sick when ordering this way, but did get sick when ordering online without notifying anybody of my allergy.

Good food, but I've ended up sick afterwards twice. I'll call it gluten free friendly, but not true gluten free.

Really good food, but honestly I would opt for the burger and a lettuce wrap instead of a bun, because the buns here suck. The burgers are delish, but I like Only Burger better tbh.

The food is fine, but it is NOT celiac safe. I've gone twice and both times ended up sick afterwards. Not worth the risk.

Tough call on this one. Staff fairly knowledgeable, but fries are cooked in peanut oil, which is a no-go in my family. Wish they had a salad, but the burgers are pretty amazing on their own.

As I recall, about 60% of the menu can be made GF, but even better, this place seems to be aware of GF issues. The food isn't fancy, but is well-made. A very popular place. The inside area is very loud and busy -- so go to the courtyard in back, which is very pleasant when the weather allows.

But I actually avoid this place because: 1) I was never into burgers much anyway; and 2) I can't stand to see my friends and family eating what look and smell like truly wonderful fries!

Amazing burgers!!! Seriously the BEST burger I've had since I have diagnosed! They have gf buns and their meat is locally sourced with no antibiotics or hormones! Housemade sauces and ice cream as well! We wish we had one of these places where we live!

YUM. They're burgers are top notch and with burger juice and sauces soaking into your gf bun, you won't miss the gluten! No dedicated fryer so their incredible fries are a no go, hence the four stars. Pickled veggies and ice cream are good. Ciders, cocktails and wines are available too - not just beer!
