My daughter and I both have Celiacs. We struggled on our trip to find gluten free options. Fords was awesome. We shared a delicious burger and mashed potatoes and got a chicken dish with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. The buns were so good we bought two to go. While thanking the manager I found out his kiddo also has celiac. (No dedicated fryer)

Had a very good burger and coleslaw. Gluten free items marked on menu. When you specify allergies they glove change and take cross contamination precautions. No dedicated fryer but there are other gluten free sides to choose from. We will come back!

Have been here three times. They offer gluten free buns and the staff and manager are trained on gluten allergies. My first experience was fairly good. However, after informing my waitress of my celiac’s, my gluten free burger came out with a single French fry sitting on the tray. Not cool at all. Could’ve made me very sick.

The waitress and manager apologized profusely, and the manager pointed out that they really try to go above and beyond for allergies. However, I could not trust the cook after the carelessness that was displayed. Clearly they had my meal labeled as a gluten allergy and still brought fries over it or near it.

That said, I’ll give this place another try at some point.

Staff was knowledgeable. Gluten free options were labeled on the menu and had gluten free buns available for hamburgers. Would have liked a dedicated fryer so I could have French fries

READ! Call, triple check, then call again! We did not actually eat here so my review is just based on experience with them not taste….. we tried to plan ahead to figure out dinner for a group of 12- 2 with celiacs…… called at 1 pm to ask if they have GF buns for cheese burgers, best time to come in for our large group, and ask if fry’s are GF…… they said 4pm is the slowest, fry’s are GF, and yes they have buns. Called again at 3pm after one of our children got sick to ask if they will do Togo orders I also double checked about buns and fry’s again…… finally called in our very large Togo order at 430 they told me it would be ready in 15 mins. We got there in about 10 mins, checked in, about 30 mins later I’m still waiting but I get a phone from them to inform me that they don’t offer GF buns anymore… I said okay fine just finish making the food without buns. But I double check for a 3rd time that the fry’s were definitely GF. The lady on the phone said no they are definitely not GF it says right on the box that they contain gluten and she apologized for the miss information. It was a s**t show!! Avoid them at all cost. Clearly no one is on the same page there considering I had called multiple times this should have never happened.

They have gluten free buns that are wonderful, but they did kindly inform me when I ordered that their fries were cross contaminated. While cross contamination does not bother me, I put it in here so others can know.

The outside bartender actually knew that being celiac means that I needed a gluten free bun. There’s an online allergy menu. And best yet… it’s been over 24 hours and I have no cross contamination symptoms

Items clearly marked on their menu. When I ordered a gf bun for my burger, the waiter confirmed it was an allergy. A few minutes later, a manager stopped by the table to let me know the kitchen was aware and taking all necessary precautions. Food was delivered to table separately from the remaining order "to keep everyone safe, happy and healthy". Could not have been handled better and food was fantastic.
