I loved eating here!! There were tons of options and the waitress knew exactly how to deal with an allergy! I had a cheeseburger with a gluten free bun, sweet potato fries (made in a separate fryer) and a Caesar salad without the croutons! Sooo delicious!!

There were quite a few options for gluten free alterations. The dedicated fryer is a huge bonus!

I had a spicy chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries and they were so amazingly good. Exactly what I wanted! Only downside was I could go for more spicy, but the others at the table were happy how spicy their sandwiches were. Highly recommend

Server first told me it would be totally safe for my celiac son, then when I asked if they had a separate fryer she said she would ask the chef. Came back and said only the yam fries would be safe...I’ve never know a place to have just a yam fry fryer so we opted to just give him the food we had brought him. Wouldn’t recommend this one for celiacs.
