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!

Delicious quinoa burger with GF bun. It fell apart but I just used fork and knife. My friends hamburger was delicious too as were the fries. Not greasy at all.

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!!

I had a gluten free cheeseburger and the bun was delicious. Very soft and not dry at all. I am definitely going back and recommend it to others

We eat here when we are visiting our daughter, and she eats here almost weekly. It is her favorite burger place and she has never gotten sick. She is not celiac but is pretty sensitive to gluten.

Have only gone one time so far but staff was very well aware of cross contamination and allergies. All of the burgers can be subbed with gf and they have separate areas. When I went, the manager had said their toaster has been down for a while so they’ve switched to using the grill and they made a separate spot for the gluten free buns! Fries are NOT gf due to shared fryer, but the craft soda is. Kids also eat free on Tuesdays (1 kid per 1 adult entree) and their beef is 100% grass fed. Gf bun was soft and buttery

Spoke with manager at counter. Was advised they can do gluten free without cross contamination. They have gluten free buns available. They have a separate part of the grill for only gluten free. Manager knew ingredient information and said she trains employees on not cross contamination food. She said the fryers are NOT gluten free so no on the fries.

Their online menu clearly lists what items are gluten free or not. Ther gluten free buns are among the best I've never tried.

While they are good about labeling gluten free items, there have been times I found onion ring flour (not gluten free) in my fries so I would not order them if you are celiac or very sensitive with cross contamination. I have never had an issue with the burgers though!
