They have a lot of options and the staff was very knowledgeable. They also have GF cornbread which was pretty good, something you almost never find at a restaurant. Almost the whole menu is GF

We rode the 1880 Train into town and ate lunch here. Two adults and 4 kids. My son and I both have celiac. Server was very helpful. Told us about precautions in the kitchen before we asked. I had a pulled pork sandwich with kettle chips. It was delicious! Very generous portion of pulled pork - enough for me to give everyone a taste and some extra for my celiac son. He had a cheeseburger and chips. Great experience here with no issues afterward!

The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable, guided us through the options and the food was fantastic. 24 hours later and no reaction! Had the corn bread and beans, delicious fresh fried chips plus dip and a bacon cheeseburger where we opted out of a bun. Fantastic experience!

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews here, and it lived up to expectations. Good food and good gluten free options! This is actually the first restaurant we've eaten inside in over 4 months due to covid. If covid precautions matter to you, the tables are socially distanced, but none of the employees had masks, and the menus are reused. I would like to believe they sanitize the menus with each guest, but wash your hands to be safe.

We had a party of 6, 2 with Celiac. We had the Desperado burger with a side salad and ranch dressing. They said they filter their oil for chips at the end of night and cook them first in the morning, but I’m extremely sensitive and didn’t want to chance it. I’m writing this 24 hours after eating there. I recommend this restaurant to other celiacs.

Burgers, Fish, other meat

The food here is great. It's so good we ate here 3 days in a row! Our server was Bobbi and she knew about celiac disease was a very nice person. They have gluten free buns and kettle chips that are cooked fresh at the start every day in clean oil. Great steaks and burgers. Prices are comparable with others in this area. I doubt you'll be sorry you stopped in.

Had a WONDERFUL experience! Our waitress was careful and knowledgable, and I had total faith in the security of my food. So much of the menu could be made safe, that we ended up going twice in the same trip! I recommend the steak and potatoes or the Desperado burger! Couldn't recommend more.

Excellent service and good. Server was knowledgeable about what was gf. We came for lunch so fewer options than the other reviews I had read on this spot. But because others had mentioned the cornbread I asked for that and got it (unexpected upcharge but I didn’t care because it was good!)

The waitress was very knowledgeable about safe gluten free options on their menu. Our meal was excellent. They have Udi’s gluten free buns for any of the burgers. They offered a variety of gluten free options and some gluten free desserts. I ordered gluten free blueberry bread pudding to-go. We will definitely go back.

The food - WOW! So much flavor! I had the buffalo steak tips with seasonal veg and a baked potato and was not disappointed. The server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful when I ordered. She even asked how sensitive I was and mentioned the fryer would not be a good choice since I'm Celiac. This is the type of service I love and makes me feel comfortable eating out. BTW, almost the entire menu can be done GF. They even have GF cornbread! Top notch food and service!

I have celiac and had no problem eating here. There are not many options for GF, but that doesn’t ever matter to me. I’m just happy to know that they are knowledgeable and that I will not get sick having dinner with my family. I had steak, baked potato, and veggies. I asked the waitress to double check on the steak seasoning and it was fine. It was a great meal and I had no reactions after eating here.

Staff was fairly knowledgeable about gluten free food items. I was a disappointed to leant I could not have fries or kettle chips since the fryer is not dedicated gluten free. The GF corn bread was delicious though.

Although they don't have a gluten free menu, when I asked about it, the owner/manager (I believe) came over and explained what they had - gluten free buns, gf soups, gf salad, and delicious gf corn bread. It was enjoyable atmosphere, tasty food and I would come back in a heartbeat.

Ditto what's been said so far. Food is amazing and staff is knowledgeable. There is not a gf menu, but the owner introduced herself and assured me anything I wanted could be prepared appropriately. I am very picky about where I eat and Desperados made me feel safe and taken care of

Happiness is.... Finding a place that can accommodate your celiac kiddo! My daughter was able to order a filling meal. The desperado burger with udi's bread. It was stacked! The chips were gf, fried first thing in the morning. (Fries are not gf.) She also got a gf brownie sundae. This thing was a monster. Call ahead of you can. They have options! :)

My 10 yo son has been recently diagnosed with Celiac. We are learning how to find good gluten free options while eating out for him. He was thrilled when we went to Desperados and they told him what the gluten free options are. They had plenty of choices. He had a chili cheese burger with gluten free bun and house made chips. For dessert they had a gluten free brownie Sunday. I had to taste it and it was pretty amazing.

Server was kind but not knowledgeable. GF buns available. I had a club sandwich on a GF bun and it was good. They also have salads. If you have kids, this was a fun place for them- they have 10 questions for them to answer on their kids menu instead of the typical crossword puzzles etc, and if they answer all 10 correctly, they get a free cookie (of course, NOT GF).

My server was aware of GF needs and very accommodating. There was the option of GF bun for my burger and since I couldn't have the fries (due to shared fryer, I believe) she subbed a baked potato for me. She assured me the chefs had a separate place to prepare GF meals.

No gluten free menu but the staff was willing to work with me and said that any number of things could be made gf. I just had the baked potato and a side of green beans but they were excellent and very fresh tasting.
