Amazing cheeseburger. They have gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer. They said they would change their gloves and all of that. Didn’t get sick.

We were pleased that they had a dedicated gluten free fryer, and their home made potato chips were gluten free. They had a GF menu. The roasted asparagus and Juicy Lucy burger with gluten free bun were good.

My favorite burger spot, mostly because they have a dedicated fryer so I am able to get their tots and fries. Gluten free bun is Udi’s but I’ve also enjoyed lettuce wrapped. Tons of other options too!

They have a gf menu, gf buns and a dedicated fryer, as well as several ciders and gluten-removed beers. Waitress told me all gf food is prepared in a separate kitchen space.

The staff was knowledgeable and took care of cross contamination. As I started talking about it she already knew what I was saying and I didn’t have to put a lot of effort. Checked it with Nima and it passed. Had veggie burger and fries. Nima certified gluten free.

GF beer was exciting! I had a cheese burger with chips. Bun fell apart a bit but not enough to say it was bad. Chips were not greasy or salty. Staff was friendly. I recommend this place. I had no reaction.

I got the chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun and french fries. They stated they had a dedicated fryer for all their french fries which they said were gluten free. I did end up not feeling well afterwards but i'm super sensitive. Food was delicious though. Great selection of gluten free food.

Excellent food! Their burgers were delicious and they had GF buns! Fries were GF in a dedicated fryer. They were very knowledgeable on GF. A chef and a manager came to check on us and make sure our food was good...very impressed with their service! One of the best burgers we’ve had since going GF!

The buffalo chicken tater tots are AMAZING! Enough for 2 people. Good burgers too with gf buns. Will be back. I would call first to be sure they are not serving their abbreviated menu. When they do, you can't get the buffalo chicken tots. The gf hun can be crumbly :/

Sat at the bar. Bartenders clueless about what’s GF and what’s not. Even have a full menu but didn’t know what may still have GF. Have a good amount of GF beers too. Got a bit sick after making my own burger.

Very large GF menu! GF buns for sandwiches or hamburgers. The chicken cordon bleu sandwich was very yummy and a large portion. They come with chips but for $2 you can sub a different side.

Had a separate menu and dedicated fryer. Staff was great and double checked with cook staff regarding my concerns. Had the Monterey Jack chicken,it was probably the best sandwich I have had since going gluten free. Their chips were amazing as well.

Ordered of their GF menu and was throwing up the entire meal in the parking lot an hour later when leaving to go home!! Do yourself a favor and drive another 5-10 minutes and go to Picazzos! Best gf restaurant around this area

It was good the burgers were huge. The tater tots were extremely greasy though and I wasn’t sure if I was feeing sort of iffy from cross contamination or the tots but all in all the food was mediocre and not really my type of restaurant. For someone who’s just gluten free as a lifestyle choice it’s probably fine, but for celiacs there’s definitely better and safer options available in Scottsdale.
