My daughter got very sick after eating here tonight. We have eaten here before and I double checked that the gluten free food would be cooked separately but I should have known better than to let her eat it when it all came out in one bag including the loose fries and onion rings my husband ordered which are not safe. Will not be coming back.

Ordered a burger in a gf bun and was asked if it was preference or allergy. I said allergy, and he said they do this in a separate area. The place was busy, and the order took over 30 minutes to come up, and that was after I went back to the counter to see they were packing up tons of Grubhub orders before taking care of the people in the store. That said, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her burger once it finally arrived.

On our trip to San Diego we found this place in La Jolla. All the family enjoyed the food. I’m the one with celiac. I had a delicious grilled fish burger on GF bun with a GF milkshake. So good.

Always a winner here and in LA. Love a place that does a GF bun. Wish they didn’t cross onion rings in fry frier but a good fun fast casual burger.

The paleo burger is the best bunless burger I’ve ever had. And the GF buns were fantastic, too. Perfect amount of food. A+

We had our food delivered to our hotel (we were tired of wearing our masks), ordered via their website. The food tasted great and was delivered promptly. My hamburger was made with vegan cheese (issues with dairy), on a GF bun and tasted the great.

Great place to eat. Staff was very knowledgeable and the food was good. Had GF burger and GF grilled chicken sandwich. Disappointed there was no dedicated fryer so we couldn’t get the fries. Will go back for sure!

The staff really cares that you have a good experience while dining here. They have a dedicated cooking area for gf and warned of any foods to avoid do to possible cross contamination. Good food and I didn’t have any symptoms after eating.

My burger on GF bun was delicious. They assured me it was GF and I believe it was since I’m very sensitive and had no reaction.

GF burger buns, no cross contaminations, went there twice while in San Diego. Cashier asked both times if we were asking GF because of diet or allergy, they all seemed very knowledgeable

We were very nervous about the burger after the Cashier who took our order seemed confused and annoyed by our questions. The fries are not even in a dedicated fryer. But the gluten free burger came out separately from everyone else’s order, and my daughter did not get violently ill, though she had some stomach pains, but I can’t say if it was from this place, or not. She certainly enjoyed her burger though.

Delicious burgers with gluten free buns. They have a separate gluten free menu available online. I had a half caesar salad without the crispy taro and it was great. I normally feel sick with cross contamination but didn’t feel sick after eating here at all. Milk shakes were also great! Nice location with outdoor seating in prime La Jolla shopping area. No dedicated parking lot, so need to find street parking.

Amazing, they understand and know what to do. For $0.95 you can sub the bun for a gluten free bun and it tasted like real bread. Also the entire menu is marked clearly what is gluten free and which is not. I will definitely go again. Amazing

I love going here and actually getting to eat a burger! The gf buns are sooo good. Careful with the fries tho, they deep fry them in the same oil as the onion rings!

Excellent gluten-free burger! The staff advised us that there are no gluten-free sides, because the fries are now fried in the same oil as something with gluten.
