After a discussion about gluten free due to being celiac.... I was told they had a dedicated fryer. My fries had a chunk of onion ring on them! I’m sick now.

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!!

The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Even though I ordered my burger wrapped in lettuce (they do offer gf buns), the server said he would still make a note “gluten allergy” for the kitchen, so that they could be extra careful

Food was good, my son and I didn’t get sick, managers attitude and poor customer service will be the reason I don’t return. I asked for a GF bun and was given a regular bun, when I asked to have a gluten free bun he accused me of not saying that I wanted 1. He re did my order but asked twice to make sure we paid the extra for the bun. Not once did he apologize. So I guess make sure you get a gluten free bun and say it’s allergy!

Went here specifically because of reviews on this app. They were extremely knowledgeable about my celiac. They have a dedicated dryer but the grease can have cross contamination. I had the fries and had no problem but be aware of that. Amazing GF bun - it did not fall apart. Overall, delicious burger and fries. I totally recommend.

I only ate here once but the service was great. 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 makes the fries and the onion rings do get mixed together and it’s reused, so there’s cross contamination. It was a good dining experience

5 star burger tasted awesome. I got their classic burger and asked for no sauce, no fries and anything that could be "iffy." I am lazy and do not bother with getting ingredients to sauces and just nix them. To make it "easy" on everyone, I even told him to have the chef nix anything on the burger not ceiliac safe (bad idea... should have done the usual 20 minute grind before ordering... so not entirely their fault).

I should have looked closer at the ingredients list and itemized for the server, because my burger came with pickles... not all pickles are safe. I paid the price the next morning. For all I know, it may have been other cross-contamination in the kitchen. So, mainly my fault for not micromanaging.

4 star rating since I know they probably tried to be accommodating, but I doubt cross-contamination is at ceiliac or severe intolerance level. Those with allergy may be fine since they can have a slightly higher gluten tollerance than celiacs (yes, I am taking you guys seriously).

FRIES ARE A NO! They may have separate fryers, but share the same oil as breaded products.

Excellent burger. Uses Udi’s restaurant hamburger buns. I wouldn’t say it is celiac friendly due to the fact that their fries share a fryer with onion rings. But it was delicious and I’m sure if I would’ve asked them to cook it on a separate grill they would have.

Staff was extremely knowledgable and helpful in making sure the burger was safe to eat. Fresh lettuce, tomato was cut in back to avoid CC. They have a separate thousand island dressing set aside for those eating it on Gf bun. Also advised that the fries are blanched in the morning with gluten ingredients but are fried in separate fryer.

Front staff did not know that veggie burger is not gluten free. Tested it with Nima and had to return it back. If I hadn’t, it would have been terrible. When I returned it back, his senior came and said veggie burger is not gluten free but didn’t have the courtesy to apologize. I would have fallen sick if not for Nima. They need to realize they are playing with people’s health here. Got a cheeseburger after that which tested safe with Nima! Three stars only for that effort. I wouldn’t eat here without checking the food.

I had the Fresh Vegetable Salad. I asked if the dressing was GF and the lady showed me a laminated card she had next to the register. It was. Very good salad. I forgot to have her tell them to change gloves.... ugh! Hopefully I’m all good...

Their burgers can be made gluten free, as can their salads. And they’re delicious!

Be warned, though: Fries here are fried with oil that’s contaminated, and milkshakes may be contaminated by them not fully washing their equipment after making Malt milkshakes.

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!
