    This was my favorite burger in the metro area before I was diagnosed. Love that I can keep going! Knowledgable staff. Grass-fed beef (with other meats available - even GF chicken tenders but I've never tried them), my favorite hand-cut fries in the world, fabulous milkshakes and TWO choices of GF buns. Who offers that?! I like Jensen's best, but Udi's its available too. Your whole party will love this place.

    It was the first and only 50s diner style restaurant. They are very friendly and willing to accommodate. Our server worked to help us and then the owner came out to talk with us too. Don't expect them to know what on the menu is gluten free though. They have a binder of all of the labels for everything they serve so I was able to look into every part of my meal to be sure it was safe and they did a good job of avoiding cc. The owner brought out some free fries while I was reading all the labels which was nice, and they were really good.

    This place seems like it's out of the way, but really it's only minutes from Beaverton or Hillsboro. The short drive from there, through the rolling farm land is a beautiful one. The food is worth the forty-five minute drive we take to get there. The burgers are hand made, fresh, expertly seasoned, and delicious. They have gluten free buns. I can eat the fries. They have a back patio where our dog is welcome. The food is excellent. The service is excellent. The only ding I can give is I wish they were open more days of the week. They are closed Mon and Tues. I bet there's not enough business to warrant staying open. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wishes they were closer to where I live as well, but they can't be close to everyone. They have hand made, real ice cream, milk shakes! They have bison and fish! They use locally raised, pasture grown beef. They have microbrews or gluten free beer for those who partake, or organic coffee on the other end of the spectrum. They have something I have seen at no other full service restaurant: a gluten free brownie sundae!!! They have friendly servers. They are the best burger joint around. Not only do they have well crafted food, they accommodate my dysfunctional digestive system. Yummy, tasty, good! This really is as good as it gets.

    This is THE go-to diner for Celiacs. In addition to great GF diner food, they also have reasonably priced GF beer! Portion sizes are generous and it's very kid friendly. Can't recommended highly enough!

    Another great burger and one of the best ciders I've ever had. Dedicated fryer and they're very careful. They're also happy to show you ingredients of pretty much anything they serve.

    This should be mainstay on your gf restaurant list. Great food, fun decor, good service. Been here dozens of times and never been sick. Dedicated gf fryer, gf buns. Get the root beer! Also have lactose free milkshakes. It is worth the drive.

    They use Jensons buns that I think are far better than Udis and they only serve gf chicken strips. They are so good people can't tell. Great service and they seen very knowledgeable about gf procedures.

    All in all it was good and I love how it's all GF. However, one of my daughters chicken nuggets was not cooked fully and we have not been in since.

    Great GF options. Burgers made from grass fed beef raised locally by the owner. All fries are GF. Good burgers made from good quality ingredients. They use Jensen's buns for those looking for gf options. Friendly staff and good service.
