    I typically go to another location & came to this one to see the menu didn’t list any GF options. For whatever reason their new menus don’t list it but staff was very knowledgeable and food was safe! So good!

    Do not go here. Very dangerous. Had to get our money back. They contaminated our food and put our health at risk in a very serious way. Allergic to tomato and they still put it on the burger. Seeds everywhere. They do not listen to the order you give them especially when they are busy. And they weren't even that busy. If you have any food allergies avoid this place like the plague. No good!!!

    I eat here often and I've never gotten sick, so I give it a 5 star. My family loves the fries. They are better if you ask them to make them crispy... order them GF because they have a dedicated fryer. They always bring the GF order separated from the rest of the orders in my party. The bun is good, burgers are juicy. If you order a shake, make sure you ask for GF since they make other shakes with gluten ingredients.

    Have eaten here several times with no problems, but after my last visit this weekend I got sick. Everything I was served had the GF sticker, but they were really busy and I'm guessing something got mixed up with the fries maybe. I'll go back, just not at a busy time.

    French Meadows buns stood up to a single burger but doubt they be good for a double. Loose grind means a juicy burger with a great sear. Bad news is fries are cooked in soy. You pay for fries even if you cannot eat them. Disabled friendly lighting and seats. I will stick with WDW as it was 2 hours driving for burger and shakes. Toll road is expensive. Great for west coast persons who are not soy free.

    Edit: Sadly my son was glutened the last time we ate here :( It was one of the worst experiences and took him many days to recover. I don't know what went wrong, only clue was they said the bun tasted like the real thing. I wonder if our gluten free request was not relayed to the cook. It was a busy weekend....Previous review: Celiac child had no issues whatsoever! The persons who take the order are knowledgeable about celiacs and the servers too! And the burgers are delicious, so are the sweet potato fries! If you have to drive a long ways to get here, assure you that it will be worth it!

    They have a dedicated fryer and space for gluten-free. Their food is delish. I will say that we have eaten there several times and on one occasion it seemed that it was taking a long time for our food to come out. That us when the manager came out and told us that there was a mishap with my meal (rest of family is not gluten-free) - he said that my burger received a regular bun and that they had to remake my burger. The honesty in the management team that was awesome - they could of just change the buns and I would of not been the wiser until later. And later I would have been in the hospital because I am pretty sensitive. B-21 from that day has my loyalty but I also tell them when making my food - it is not a diet for me but a true health situation. So I have not had any problems and we were told that one of the owners daughter's had celiac --- that was why the chain is so celiac friendly!

Some flavors are marked GF on the menu. They have a separate blender that is marked Gluten Free to prevent cross-contamination so no worry about whether it was cleaned well enough or not.

    Not a lot of GF options. Their fries aren’t and none of their non-beef burgers are either. I had to get grilled chicken strips and it only came for a few and no GF sides. Also most of their condiments are off limits. I was really disappointed since this was so highly rated on this app I thought for sure I’d be satisfied but I wasn’t.

My burger was in it's own bag marked gluten free but the gluten free fries were in the bag with my husband's gluten meal. This makes no sense at all :-( Definitely not safe for Celiac.

Once we got there his order was taken and everything arrived within minutes gluten-free! Dedicated french fry fryer just for gluten free and they offer gluten-free buns :-) after we left he decided he should have opted for the chocolate peanut butter ice cream but he was too full while we were there :-) definitely recommend. the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 was the five of us' total was 60 bucks!

I loved how the girl at the shake station brought my son's shake over and gave us a step-by-step description of her methods. The burger was tasty, and the manager came by and checked in with us to see how everything was. The various GF sauces available are clearly labeled GF. Everything was very clean. No ill effects after eating here. My newly-diagnosed teenage son is SO happy to be able to get a burger and fries out again. We'll be back!

    Manager stepped out to give us the GF run down of their kitchen before we ordered. Here is how good it was: the fries came out later than the burger, and the manager came out to explain that kitchen staff inadvertently set the fries down in a non-gf area: they had to start over to make sure I had GF fries!!
