    Okay. The burger itself was really good but they have generic GF Udis buns which we personally don’t like. The kids size burger was tiny and didn’t take up half of the GF bun. Fries were not in a dedicated fryer and were cool and not flavorful. We ate here late at night so not sure if that’s why our food wasn’t great? Our extended family ate at a different location a day earlier and loved both the burgers and fries however they are not GF. So not sure why our experience wasn’t as good as theirs.

    Nima showed gluten in both the turkey burger and the green salad. They were very nice and comped my meal, but I was not able to eat anything safely.

    Everything about this place is awesome! Best gluten free bun I've ever tasted! And all the food was great. Super friendly staff that knows a lot about gluten. He asked right away if we had a sensitivity or severe allergy so he could let the staff know to use all fresh utensils and wear gloves. Lots of fresh and organic. If I'm in SD again, I would definitely come back!

    Delicious! The gluten free bun and burger really hit the spot after a busy day. Avoid the fries (they are cross contaminated but they let you know that upon ordering). Staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. Super fast too! I'll be back!

    The manager was great! I was ordering the kale salad and he explained that while they fry sweet potatoes in a separate fryer when the open there is a period where the fries are in mixed oils and although it seems ok for sensitivity he recommended that those with celiacs leave it off. He was knowledgable and forthcoming. Definitely recommend!

    Lamb burger just became available on the menu today. The guy working the register said we are the first to try it!! He also said the fries are cooked in a separate fryer. They also have gluten free buns! Just got done eating my burger...holy cow it was sooo delicious!!! There is jalapeño relish on it but you cannot taste the spice if you can't handle it. The French fries are also so delicious!! I will be coming here again!!! Amazing!!

    Called because if I am going to eat a burger, I want fries! According to who I spoke to - While their fryers are technically separate, the oil filter is common so they all share oil. Which is dumb and not safe for us. Lame!

    WARNING! I had previously been told their fries are GF and cooked in a separate fryer. Today when I called to order the guy asked if it’s allergy or preference and then told me the fries aren’t safe because at the end of the night they drain all the oil into the same bucket and then reuse it after the dryers get cleaned. So the breaded stuff frier oil gets mixed into the fries only frier oil. The burgers are still great and I believe they handle the food well. But that was a nasty surprise!

    Super juicy and delicious burger! Gf bun toasted just right so the texture was great. Fries were delicious. I have celiac and had no reaction. We loved this place! It’s casual with ordering at a counter. Top notch ingredients, including grass fed beef, no fake cheese, and even milkshakes with local produce. We were too full to get one though. Highly recommend this place!

    My brother and I both have celiac disease meaning we can’t eat any gluten because we are allergic to it. So, we ordered two burgers both with gluten free buns, bacon and one with avacado for pickup. The employee on the phone read back the order exact to us and when we picked it up it was completely wrong. When we picked them up, one had a regular bun on it and one had the correct gluten free bun. Also, one had bacon on it and the other did not. That being said, once they fixed it (I never got the bacon even after they remade it), the food was good but semi-expensive for relatively small portions. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone who also has a serious allergy.

    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.

    I only ate here once but the service was great. I Very knowledgeable and my food preparation was explained. The burger was very good and so was the bun. The french fries are technically cooked in a separate fryer...however...they explained that they merge the frying oils at the end of the day and reuse to fry. So the oil that fries the fries and the onion rings do get mixed together and it’s reused, so there’s risk of cross contamination. They said they’ve never had an issue but I didn’t want to take the risk as I’ve been glutened that way before. It was a good dining experience

    Super soft GF bun for the burgers. Options were reduced due to a shared fryer, however settled on the kettle chips which were bland. Overall food seemed to be lacking in flavor for the price, however didn’t get sick in anyway which is sometimes priceless...

    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.

The first employee we encountered when we walked in said nothing except the special gf buns is gf. Ask for the manager when you go in. Food was excellent! Burgers were juicy. They use Udi’s buns for their gf buns. They fry their French Fries in peanut oil.

    Nothing dedicated to GF, so 3 stars. The GF bun was great and didn't fall apart like most. However it goes through the same toasting mechanism as everything else so it's cross contaminated. I don't know if the bun had dairy - forgot to ask and hoped for the best. The avocado was excellent. The fries definitely have just one fryer so they don't recommend it (and they weren't awesome so you aren't missing much). They do have salads I realized later. Liked the fact they had turkey and veggie burger options. Lavender lemonade was decent. Free refill. Not much seating but near the restrooms so you can wash. Burger was good. But from GF perspective, nothing dedicated.

    i am celiac. People working here are friendly and knowledgeable. I was about to take a bite into the burger when I thought to ask "this bread is gluten free, right?" (the bread just seemed too 'spongy' for being gluten free) and the young man looked and said no. so he took the entire dish back, apologized and told me I would get large fries without charge. and so it happened. the burger bread and fries were delicious! and I felt fine afterwards.

    Amazing burger and the toasting of the Udi's bun was delicious!!! I had the side salad (again amazing!). They do not have a dedicated fryer, so fries and such are not an option for me (sensitive to cross contamination). Also, paper menu said Alaskan Cod was available in a gluten free option, but staff informed me it was made with Panko. Super knowledge and friendly - worth the visit!
