Terrible. My daughter and I ordered a sandwich and burger on a GF bun. They were out of gf bread. We decided to share nachos. They were out of those. I then got a salad and asked for no cheese. It came with cheese. We will not be back

They don't have a gluten free menu just a gluten sensitive menu and clearly state risk of cross contamination. I ordered a burger with the GF bread which was delicious but somehow I still ended up sick the next day. Cross contamination is high here.

Gluten free menu, a lot of the menu items are fried in a fryer that is cross contaminated. Only place in DC to get a burger on a bun!

Visited this restaurant with my husband. The menu is styled to British cuisine, which is heavily gluten based - e.g. fish and chips, pies, fried calamari, burgers, etc. The only gluten free detail on the menu is that they offer a gluten free bun with the burgers. Nothing else is labeled. After speaking to the server, they said only the burger bun was the gluten free option on the menu and the fries were not gluten free because of cross contamination in the kitchen. I ordered the gluten free bacon and blue burger with the salad which was very tasty, but I was disappointed to only have one food item option.

Great food and reasonable prices for takeout/delivery. I like the grilled chicken sandwiches and salads here. They have good fries too and I didn’t have any reactions

Very nice that they at least have gluten free burger buns. Their gluten free menu is pretty extensive, but they often use sauces/dressings that most be removed for the food to be gluten free. Fried food is also prepared in a shared frier. If you're anything more than mildly gluten sensitive, eating here could be an issue.

I wish I couldn’t even give them a 1 Star. They had a gf menu but the menu needed to be updated because the server said if that’s wrong. When I finally got my food after I told them I have celiac it didn’t matter. Do Not eat here
