This place is NOT dedicated GF. Read recent reviews. We also ordered here once, couldn’t contact them, and they left out half our order.

Have to add on here. I was SO excited to find this place. The fact that the chef had celiac and gluten free was in the title was enough for me to trust. I ordered multiple times and the food is delicious. After reading a poor review here I tested the cheeseburger with my Nima and gluten was found. So disappointed that this is the case. Has anyone heard from the restaurant regarding these concerns? It’s so hard to trust this again after finding that - and it seems like their gluten free claim needs to be examined

NOT A DEDICATED GF FACILITY. NO WAY NO HOW. Not celiac safe. ugh. I HATE to be the bearer of bad news when food is SO so good and also when it has a high rating on Findme GF. I want to say that they have the best fish sandwich I have ever had, and I will recommend to others. That should have been the first sign something was off. I ordered Deep Fried Catfish Fillet Sandwich with Aioli Cole Slaw & Fries, 1 Pound of Jumbo Chicken Wings and some sides. I felt immediately SO sick after eating the sandwich and so I tested the food in a NIMA tester and it came back as having gluten in it. I also tested the chicken wings separate and they also had gluten in them. Threw away the sides as to not keep wasting money on food and also testing. I had the worst celiac reaction that I've had in years in the days after.

I know a lot of restaurants do not make the claim to be gluten free because it is so hard with cross contamination, but this one does, and it is in the name of the place. I messaged anad called the restaurant to clarify order (which I NEVER DO) and of course no response. I do not trust at all based on 'no response' and completely false advertising.

Mexican food truck that is entirely gluten free. Owner is Celiac. Parked in the Gate H Plaza at Wrigley Field the week of July 4th during Cubs games. Hopefully they become a regular fixture.
