They try their best to prevent cross contamination. They are trained on allergy protocol and the staff is always reassuring and kind. Haven’t had their burgers but I always get the blackened salmon with a couple of their gluten free sides (mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or broccoli) I haven’t had any issues & it’s always delicious! I highly recommend it.

Side note: I was informed that all of their dressings are house-made and are at a high risk for contamination, so stay away from any side salads!

I love their safety protocols in place. The food is always good but limited options. It’s nice though ti have someplace to relax and have a meal.

Terrific GF burger buns. Many options for GF dining. Excellent waitstaff knowledgeable about Celiac. Side dishes clearly marked if GF. Great choice if you want dinner after visiting local attractions, including the Henry Ford, Greenfield Village, the Rouge plant, and the Fairlane Estate.

I always loved Ford’s Garage before my diagnosis, but this was the first time I’ve been there since. I didn’t ask for the gluten free menu as I had already previewed GF items on the website. However, the main menu does indicate a GF menu is available. I let our server know I have a “Gluten Allergy” as I verified the ChickenCobb Salad Is Gluten Free. She said she would flag my order so that the kitchen would know to be extra cautious and double check all ingredients. My food was brought out by itself. I was a bit confused, but the person who delivered it said, “we take your allergy very seriously. Making sure your food is safe is top priority for us. It has to be reviewed by a manager before being sent and has to be served separate from the rest of the order by a manager.” Wow! Color me impressed!! I’ll definitely be back!!

This place already has a lot of positive reviews, and now we see why! Kitchen is extremely careful in preparing gluten-free. A chef brought the gf food out separately and talked to us about how they take care in making they’re gluten-free orders. Everything tasted great! They do not have a separate fryer so no GF fries. Fun atmosphere! Great experience.

First time customer. I was thoroughly impressed. The manager came out to bring my side salad and explained that anything marked as a food allergy is double plated and is brought out separately by a manager and is kept separate from the rest of the tables order. I ordered a black n bleu burger with turkey instead of beef. It came on an udis bun. And I got the cheddar mashed potato side. I will definitely be returning

Burger was to die for! And they had gluten free buns! Fries unfortunately weren't gluten free. But the mashed potatoes were super tasty. Can't wait to come back!

The staff was very helpful in explaining their processes for cooking food from the gluten free menu. The menu had decent options as well. Unfortunately, as knowledgeable as the staff was, the food itself left something to be desired; it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great. Overall, just OK. Kind of a let down.

Our hostess and waitress were great about helping with all my allergies from the time I mentioned them to when I they brought my food. I ordered the A1 burger with Gouda cheese, bourbon bbq and pickles with a side of mashed potatoes. The kitchen staff brought my food to table with a gluten free bun. It was safe and delicious!

The girl taking the order sounded like she had jist woken up from a nap, telling her our order was more than painful. She was not paying attention at all. Even after having her read back the order and stating multiple times a gluten allergy we still had a bad outcome. Definitely wont be trying this again.

They have gluten free buns. But everything is cross contaminated. And they don’t have designated gf fryer. We ended up leaving because they didn’t reassure us that they would try, at all , to make sure the gf bun wasn’t contaminated. Definitely won’t be back

I have eaten here multiple time and have not gotten sick. I always choose broccoli as my side since there is not a dedicated frier, but the burgers and gf buns are great.
