Ordered a burger with a gluten free bun and told them it was for a food allergy. They serviced it with a regular bun. Asked them to remake it, and it looked like they were just going to swap the buns. We saw them about to do that and let them know it needed to be completely remade, which they then did.

They were also not very cooperative with a different food allergy we had in the group.

This place was so good I got a brisket bowl with mash potatoes and veggies. The veggie were perfectly filled! The sweet potato fries were to die for. The girl at the front was also gluten free and very knowledgeable. If I lived closer I would be going here a lot!

We take great care in making sure possible cross contamination is kept to a bare minimum. Our bread is toasted on a separate toaster and our fryer is dedicate to gluten free items only, We make our own hamburger buns and rolls for our sandwiches.

We serve amazing sandwiches & hamburgers with the some of the best gluten free fries you will ever experience. Almost all of our menu items are gluten free except for our mac & cheese, our empanadas and a few other select items. Everything is clearly marked on the menu if it is available gluten free.

Great selection of gluten-free options just be sure to mention gluten-free so they don’t throw anything on there like bread. The kids chicken fingers are really good, make sure to order extra Dipping sauce. Note: every order takes about 20-30 minutes.

My BF has celiac and the menu was well marked but when his food came out there was a large piece of regular bread on the plate. They took it back but didn’t even apologize. We left. Should’ve known better when the cashier did not seem too knowledgeable about GF.

We order from Bushfire almost every week! The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is that they run out of gluten free buns a lot of the time during their busy hours. Before ordering gluten free buns, make sure you call the restaurant to make sure they have them. Other than that, my family has never gotten sick from Bushfire! :)

just had the most unbelievable experience at Bushfire Grill on Friday. I am celiac, and for those of you that are celiac you will appreciate the pain I am now experiencing. They served me regular bread. Even though I ordered gluten free and asked the waiter TWICE when he brought it are you sure this is gluten free? When I got the bread I took at bite, asked my husband... are you sure gf?? He said the waiter said it was fine, I took another bite. Then the cashier came over and said, oops not gluten free and that it was my fault for not telling them I was celiac..... even though I asked 3 TIMES. I'm on my 3rd day in bed with severe pain, my autoimmune system has gone crazy and I can't even eat broth. Everything hurts. Never once did they offer to comp my bill. If you are going to specialize in gluten free you had better get it right. If you have celiac avoid this place like the plague!!!

I specified that I had substantial allergies in my order, and I ordered 5 meals of the same item for guests at a wedding. there was a spaghetti noodle in the sauce which made all meals contaminated. They apologized and refunded the order, and gave credit to give them another chance, however didn’t change the fact that I and my guests got sick from eating their food. They said they take gluten free very seriously and I trusted them because of that fact, and due to all the previous positive reviews. They stated that it was concerning to them that the cross contamination had occurred because they do take it so seriously and said they were going to retrain all kitchen workers on gluten free procedures....

So yummy! And so many GF options including gf buns and cookies! Also heathy foods though- don’t worry! I love the mixed bowls and only wish they were on grub hub or door dash so I could enjoy more often! Also my husband is not gf and he loves the food so it’s a good place for everyone! Not just indulgent for those of us who are gf. ;)

I'm a newly diagnosed celiac and still trying to navigate the whole thing. Staff here was friendly and polite. They knew which items had gluten (buns, bread, mac and cheese) and which didn't (everything else!) They don't fry anything with gluten, so the French fries are safe. I had the curry chicken bowl with veggies, but noticed the veggies were in a bowl in the kitchen next to the mac and cheese, so I asked them to give me some fresh veggies and they had no problem doing it. All of the staff were polite and helpful and our server confirmed that my veggies were prepared fresh on a clean cutting board. I will definitely come back whenever I'm in town or traveling to San Diego from the desert.

Fresh, lots of options and nearly everything GF. The sweet potato fries are worth a long drive. House-made GF buns. Several items served "cafeteria style", but well-trained staff and very little gluten-based options meant I didn't get sick. I'll be back.

I tried this place when they first opened and I didn't think it was safe since it was all open buffet style and staff wasn't sure about cross contamination. Since then my friend recommended it so I tried it. They said everything is now gf except the bread and Mac and cheese. I had a chicken bowl free with range chicken it had an amazing green pesto type sauce on side. We also a side of sweet potato fries cooked in a dedicated fryer. I didn't get sick and will try it again.

The food is really good. most of the food is gluten free, but they serve it with bread. be careful to make an allergy clear. I watch them prepare my order bc they accidentally put bread in my take out box once. If you are sensitive I would stay away from the dishes that are spooned onto bread for sandwiches.

Amazing experience! Ordered the tri tip sandwich and the up charge for gluten free bread was totally worth it. Might be some of the best bread I’ve had. Had a strawberry side salad and a nibble of my husband’s brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. No reaction and I’m super sensitive even to cross contamination.

Ordered a gluten free cookie and they heated it up (in a paper bag). They even brought it on a separate plate from the rest of the groups.

Lots of options on the menu. The choices were almost overwhelming. We’re from out of town, but 100% wish we had this gem in our backyard.

I am newly diagnosed with symptomatic celiac. I was nervous staff know I had a severe gluten allergy (celiac). But staff seemed very knowledgeable & accommodating. They have dedicated fryer, and explained how food was handled. I got the bowl with Thai Chicken Curry, Mashed Potaes & Brussel Sprouts. Felt great afterwards. No issues, and would recommend.
