    OMG!! BEST BURGER EVER!!! Very safe and accommodating. Separate fryer so we can have FRIES!! Checked every item for possible allergens. I’ll come back to Maui just to eat here! FYI- man v. food was filming here while we ate. So extra cool experience.

    The staff were very serious about making sure everything I ordered was not contaminated. On their menu they have labels on which foods are gluten free or can be made gluten free. They have delicious gluten free buns for the burgers and their fries are gluten free. The waitress confirmed with me that the fries are made separately and are completely safe. Delicious place with a nice atmosphere!

    Items in regular menu are marked GF for no gluten ingredients, or GFO for substitutions for GF option. Told waiter I am celiac, and he told me to stay away from certain things cause no dedicated fryer, I had the fish tacos which were good, but not amazing.

    Good GF fish tacos and well-marked menu. GF buns available but I always get the fish tacos.

    Best burger I've ever had! Don ho burger with gluten free bun was delicious. I didn't get sick at all. Didn't even miss not having fries since the burger was so big. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

    Grilled chicken breast with bacon and pineapple was good. I skipped the gf bun and went with two scoops of white rice.

    Great place! Gluten free buns. Fries are cooked in the same fryer however. Yummy Mai Tais! We ate outdoors, and the breeze was wonderful!

    Decent food, decent gluten-free options. If you can handle x/contamination the fries have no gluten added but aren't prepared in a dedicated fryer. If you're not a fry-hound they offer white rice or pineapple coleslaw alternatives. Im celiac and has no issues after having the Luna on a gf bun, a few fries and a cocktail. Did not try the adult milkshakes. Staff is well-versed in gf needs and questioning.

    On line and over the phone they stated that the fries were gf... Guess what...in the same fryer with everything else. They did have a gf bun for $2 more.

    I was a little worried based on other reviews. My son had a burger without a bun, he prefers it that way, so I can't comment on the handling of gluten free buns. They let him switch his side to rice. The rest of us don't eat gluten free and we all enjoyed our chicken sandwiches and hot dogs. Probably the least expensive dinner while in Hawaii.

    Not gf friendly. No gf buns or items. Dirty gross feel to the restaurant.

    Boo. Messed up my sons order. Burger came out with bun and fries. Took another 20 min for a fresh order. Of course the server that messed up didn't deduct it from our bill. And within 60 minutes, my 11 yo was vomiting on the side of the road.

    Fries aren't gf but the fish tacos were good. Weird that on the gf menu they're $1 cheaper but when our bill came, they were the same price as regular. Didn't feel good after we left there so I think I was glutened

    Excellent burgers! No gluten free buns but they do have a gluten free menu. I brought my own bun and the wait staff was happy to make my burger on that!

    This place was a safe place for while visiting lahaina. They do not have a huge menu but some decent choices. The prices aren't the greatest for the amount of food you get but it's safe and tastes good.

    So awesome to have Hawaiian food options! I was missing out on being able to have mixed plates around town. Make a GF Mac salad for next year's trip, please!

    There is nothing on the web site about the gluten free menu, but they do have one. It is small, which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5. The prices are more reasonable than most places in Maui. The Hula Chicken is outstanding. My husband had a regular burger and said it was excellent. 1950s decor. Open air seating. Root beer floats free with coupons from other places in the center.
