    Great location, had a nice view and listened to live music. Food was okay and had knowledge staff, but overpriced. I wanted to order a teriyaki pineapple burger, but was told in order to make it GF they couldn't do the teriyaki. That defeated the whole purpose, so I ordered something else. Ended up just getting a cheeseburger on the Udis bun, with the sweet potato tots. Burger wasn't anything special, but tots were good. Didn't realize it was an extra $3 for the bun, until the check came out. If we knew that, I would have done the lettuce wrap. Milkshake was okay. Good atmosphere, decent food, didn't get sick, but a bit overpriced.

    My family and I ate there last night. I explained to the waiter that I have Celiac Disease and he assured me that the kitchen staff was knowledgeable. I ordered a cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. Unfortunately, after a few bites I noticed that my bun was the same as the non gluten free buns. So for that, I give this restaurant a 3/5. What stopped me from going lower was that the manager comped our entire tables dinner and drink bill.

    Menu is well marked with asterisks next to items that can be made gluten free. I had the California burger on a gluten free bun and sweet potato tots. They have a dedicated fryer for tots and fries, etc. Nothing made me sick and it tasted great! Our server, Nick, was very friendly and service was fast.

    Fantastic food and great service. So many gluten free options! We went 2xs during our spring break trip and never got glutened. Love the sweet potato tots and fries. The super slaw was delish along with the CA burger. Yum. We'll be back.

    I've had better burgers but was still pretty good. Felt fine eating there and the staff was really friendly. I didn't get the sweet potato tots but just regular fries. They have a separate fryer. Good atmosphere.

    Really had high hopes! I had been craving a burger with a GF bun for along time. My son and I both have Celiacs so we saw the reviews and chose to go here. Our whole family went for lunch and as much as we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal... my stomach did not later on. My son was fine so I am assuming it was the sweet potato tots as he did not have them. Anyways, the service was okay and the food was good but definitely not something to write home to mom about. 😬

    They are super careful and well educated about gf issues - they told me the burger would be delayed due to the fact the grill would need to be cleaned to heat up a gf bun in a safe non contaminated place - amazing. There is a separate fryer For fries!! Amazing burgers in an unexpected place - don't hesitate to eat here after you talk to the friendly staff.

    We had an excellent GF/DF experience here! The burger was amazing (they use Udi's buns). My son had the regular fries which he loved and I had the sweet potato tots ... never had anything like that before; they very unique and delicious. They have a dedicated GF fryer. Also, somebody else wondered how their buns got toasted so I asked. They have a dedicated grill that they use. I definitely plan to frequent this place. Just great to have a safe and delicious burger and fries again! Probably the best burger we've had GF/DF! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

    The GF turkey burger and fries I had were flavorful. They did tell me they have a dedicated fryer too. TheMy husband, who's a non GF diner also really enjoyed his burger. Our server took all the extra steps to keep my order safe too. When I'm in the area again, this will be one of the first places I go. I hope they open locations in the Midwest someday:)

    Best burger bun I've ever had. The Caprese burger was delicious with no bad after effects. They take good care in preparation.

    Very GF aware. Dedicated fryer for fries and surprisingly, GF Chicken fingers that my daughter loved. My GF bun was kind of dry, but what's new. My only concern, was that my bun was toasted. I didn't get to ask about that process, but they seemed to understand the need for careful handling. Friendly service.
