    The kitchen staff is careless and has a lack of knowledge when it comes to gluten free. There is no excuse for a gluten free order to come out with a regular bun.

    Good, but definitely overpriced! I recently started going here with a friend before being diagnosed, and was happy to find out they can make things gluten free. I went there for the first time since being diagnosed last week, and was happy with what I ordered. I will say the burgers have a tendency to be a little dry and overcooked, so I usually order them less done than I would somewhere else, and that helps. The gluten free bun was very good, but expensive ($2.50!). I wouldn't mind the up-charge so much if they weren't already way overpriced (especially since I'm removing other items from the burger to make it gf). I ended up paying almost $20 after tip, for just the burger and a side salad (lettuce with strawberries and dressing). I will definitely stick to bunless from now on, and probably won't go very much with the cost as high as it is for what you get.

    Delicious burgers. I love that no matter how many times I've been my burger has always been thoroughly cooked unlike most burger joints. Don't worry if the "fixings" aren't on the burger you want. Add them. I always design my own burger and they are very accomidating. Sweet potato fries are YUMMY. Yes, it is expensive, but at least here you are getting your money's worth.

    Super slow! There was a 20 minute wait, plus 15 minutes before we were able to put our order on, plus at least another 30 to get our food! The waiter double checked on all the sauces and toppings for me and subbed all the fried stuff out. That was extremely helpful. The burgers and sandwiches all come with a side but the only option that is gluten free is a side salad, which consists of a medium bowl of nothing but salad greens and dressing. That's it. No tomato, no carrots, just greens. $2.50 up charge for the gluten free bun. It was a little pricey for what I actually got, since really I paid about $14.50 for one burger, since the side salad was not really a salad. Burger was good though, just not worth $14.50.

    I had a very yummy burger here. Staff was very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. Wish they would dedicate a GF frier for the fries, definitely look good and wish I could have tried them. Otherwise they have a unique burger selection worth trying and opt for the side salad instead of fries.

    After reading here about a dedicated fryer & others eating the french fries, we were disappointed to be told by our server that they do NOT have a separate, dedicated gf fryer! Our 9 year old is highly gluten intolerant, so we definitely passed on the fries- which is a bummer, because he was looking forward to those with his burger. He settled for a side salad, but ended up with not many (like 1) gf dressing choices. Overall, it was a good experience & we all liked our burgers!!

    Knowledgable staff and the bun was so good I had to ask where they got their gluten free bakery. I was very pleased that no one seemed confused or frustrated when I asked about gluten free items.
