    They did have a gf menu - but basically they listed things on there that are fried in a shared fryer :( omission beer.

    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!

    They took care to make it gluten free, but the lettuce in my salad was not fresh... at all.

    I've been here 3 times now ( breakfast and 2 dinners) the staff was nice every time I had questions and the gf bun was actually great! They can do just about any sand which/ burger on a gf bun. No separate fryer for fries and such. Over all a good place to eat and drink

    Typical scam gluten free menu. Take a rule burger, remove the bun. Wow now gluten free. Look elsewhere

    Gluten free buns for burgers and sandwiches. I got the turkey sandwich which was good! Could've used something more than just mayo though

    I actually had a really great experience here! I got a delicious salmon burger on a GF bun with a side of veggies that were actually pretty good. I am used to not being able to get fries on the side, so that didn't bother me. My server was actually GF herself, so she was very helpful. You can choose from the salads, a chicken dish (modified to be GF), and most of the burgers. I'd love to go here again.

    They have a GF menu, but I am nervous when I go here. The menu says that all salads can be served, with meat that has NOT been seasoned, but when I began to ask the server about the fries on one salad, and the buffalo hot sauce on another salad, etc. she did not have a CLUE as to what I was talking about. "Oh, you want meat that hasn't been seasoned, do you?" In answer to my question if the buffalo sauce was GF or not, "well, it depends on if you want it or not. Can you eat buffalo sauce?" I decided to stick with what I had the last time I came: Smothered chicken with garlic potatoes. I have eaten these twice and have not gotten ill. Celiac "friendly", but...be careful!

    The staff seemed so annoyed that I was asking for gluten free. Our waitress, was very put out & even told me the only thing was a burger or salad. I inquired on a few other options, which she just kept saying yes it was gf, after she told me, only the kitchen would know... Did not have a good feeling about our meal.

    Only thing really gf is that they have an option for a gluten free bun. Most everything else on the menu has gluten or runs a high risk of cross contamination. If you just have a sensitivity you might be fine eating here, but if you have celiac I would avoid it. Everything is fried in one fryer so your only side options are veggies. The veggies were good, but that was your only choice. Waitress tried to be helpful, but the restaurant as a whole did not seem very knowledgable. We had a good experience, but it was very hard finding something safe to eat. There were only about 5 things that did not contain gluten and three of those were veggies.

    Popped in for lunch and the manager was very educated on gluten free I had a excellent French Dip sandwich on a gluten free bun . Fries are not gluten free but the food was excellent and they were willing to substitute anything to make me happy I was so impressed with the knowledge of the manager and gluten free

    a little disappointing. when checking their rating and web site I assumed that they had gluten free buns and bread options. not so. I shouldn't assume.
