Wait staff informed me 80% of their menu is gluten free. GF buns were available with a burger or sandwich. Turkey burger was very good, sweet potato fries were ok.

The menu here doesn’t have gluten free marked anywhere, however they have many options. The waitress informed us that all of their sauces are gluten free, they have gluten free pizza crust and can make any burger or sandwich with a gluten free bun. She said the fryer has their onion rings in it so the fries would not be safe. The pizza was a 6/10 and the veggie burger was tasty with the kale slaw on top. When ordering the waitress asked if I had Celiac’s and said she would make sure the kitchen knew! They made me feel very safe eating there.

When I went in with friends after school our server was extremely uninformed and said they didn’t have gluten free options.

The staff was friendly, but our server didn’t seem entirely sure about the gluten free options. She stated a few times that most of the salad dressing are gluten free... but couldn’t give me any more details. I ordered a Cobb salad with grilled chicken. I had a slightly upset stomach and a fuzzy head, although that may have been from the blue cheese. I would not consider this place exceptionally gluten free, but it’s a good option if you ask a lot of questions and know what you can and can’t eat on the menu.

Fabulous service, well aware of gluten allergies, confirmed fries are in a separate fryer. Tasty food! If I'm in the area again (was traveling for work), I will definitely be back!

By far my favorite gluten free restaurant in Chicago! They are willing to make nearly every entree/sandwich gluten free. One of the best I've had! must try!

Took a minute to find it but so worth it!! I have multiple intolerances, but there were so many options I wanted to cry. Has the bakes polenta fries and the wok bowl--all GF! Sat at the bar and the bartender was super knowledgeable. Couldn't have asked for more.

I ate at Doc B's for the 20th + time this past weekend. There was a small wait, but the hostess was accurate on the length of time and if anything we were sat quicker then quoted. As someone who is very gluten intolerant, but not Celiac. I have found that there are a lot of amazing options at Doc B's. I love their turkey burger & grilled artichoke. I had often ordered the Wok Bowl without sauce. However, on this visit I found out that all of their sauces have been re-formulated so they are ALL Gluten Free!!! Even the sauces in the Wok Bowl and Teriyaki Salad Dressings are now made in house with Gluten Free Soy Sauce. This was very exciting. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for something delicious and healthy. Our waitress Kayla was very attentive and knowledgeable in answering questions related to food allergies. We also were able to meet Chuck (Executive Culinary Manager), he told us all about the change in their sauces and recipes as he makes them.

They take their preparation very seriously. Dedicated fryer, all sauces made in house - no GF menu but they can make almost everything GF. I love this place.

I'm a very sensitive celiac, order out from here regularly, and have yet to be glutened. That said, I almost always order the same thing, the chicken wok-out bowl, which I HIGHLY recommend. But since I don't really deviate from that, I can't speak to many other things.

All sauces and many of the items are already GF. Can make just about any item GF. Fantastic food. Gluten Free buns for burgers.

I thought the food was fantastic. I am Celiac and very sensitive. I didn’t have any problems. I loved the burger and fries.

I was very skeptical eating at a bar at the very busy Intl Plaza. However, I learned that Doc B's is your best bet in the plaza/mall area. I had wings (!), which they baked separately. I still wouldn't advise that celiacs eat anything fried because of CC, but the manager was knowledgeable about gluten and CC.

Wow! Needed to pick a restaurant last minute that was near enough to the airport for my family while we were waiting for our late flight. Delicious and completely safe! Staff knew about gluten and nearly everything could be made gluten free. Dedicated fryer!! I had a burger on the gluten free bun. Great taste and held together mostly until the very end. Would eat here again and again and again if I was a local!
