So we are trying Fudruckers tomorrow for a birthday party we will attend. I'll write a review about whether they were Celiac friendly after our visit. But in hopes that "Unnamed" who posted earlier, I write this to hope he might be more tolerant of the extra work he complained about. My son and I have Celiac's Disease, which as many people don't realize is not an allergy or intolerance, but a genetic disease where, for some people, the response to even trace amounts of gluten is for the body to develop antibodies against itself, particularly in the lower intestines, attacking them and damaging its ability to absorb nutrition from food. It is a series disease and if untreated stunts growth (my 10 year old son was losing weight for unexplained reason, having frequent severe reflux into his mouth while standing up, severe daily headaches, his teeth were staining and he was developing juvenile psoriatic arthritis and ADD type symptoms, and more). Celiacs can lead to really serious secondary auto immune diseases. So to the Fudrucker's employee "Unnamed" who posted how inconvenienced he is by having to clean the grill off or fry the fries separately from the food that will be served as "Gluten Free" to customers, I hope your comments were just because no one has ever explained the disease to you. Not all people avoiding Gluten are doing it as part of a fad; the cross contamination is a real issue for many and causes a lot of suffering for people who have the disease. As for the people who have allergies or intolerance, they deserve the right to know if the food being labeled "gluten free" is truly gluten free as well. Restaurant owners/management choose whether or not to make accommodations for people with the condition. If you don't want to have to deal with the extra work those accommodations require, wouldn't it be better to work at a restaurant that doesn't do it? The majority don't. I hope that in your life you don't have a close friend or family member who has the disease because, believe me, it's much more than an inconvenience living with all the restrictions the disease entails, especially for a child.
Okay but 1/3 lb burger more like 1/6 lb time it got cooked. Gluten free bun was good but too big for the way the patty turned out.
What is with you gluten free people, I work at this fuddruckers and when you complain about cross contamination your wasting your time and ours. You know we actually had to empty out are fryer and put new grease in it just cause a customer complained that he doesn't want his fries to be in the same fryer as our other food. Also when they come in and worry about CC on our grill they ask us to clean the whole grill and then cook their food.That means we have to turn it off, wait for it to cool, poor water and let it evaporate then clean it, wait 30 min and then turn it on. You guys are a pain in the ass
Staff was familiar with their gluten free offerings and assured me I would be safe eating there. I had a cheeseburger on a gluten free bun with potato wedges (I requested no seasoning). I felt safe eating there, had no issues, and I will be back!
Ate a free birthday 1/3 lb burger there for lunch today because I'm on the email list. I do not have a problem with cross contamination, but was told that they would change gloves. The bun was one of the better gf buns I've had. Since gluten free buns are crumbly I wrap them in the wax paper they are served on, like burgers used to be wrapped. It keeps the buns from falling all apart while eating the burger. I had the sweet potato fries which needed to be hotter. But I asked for some of the fry sauce which made the cold fries taste better. The people were very friendly and helpful. Nice environment! I don't know how celiac friendly it is.
I've been to Fuddruckers several times since being diagnosed with Celiac's, and haven't gotten sick. Normally I get a burger (my favorite is the Hangover) on lettuce, with a side of apples. However, after hearing from multiple sources that the fries have a dedicated frier, I tried them, an again, no problems. Just be clear with the staff that they need to be careful with your food. I've been to two different locations, and the staff were helpful and responsive at both.
I ate here last weekend. was told they never put bread on the grill, it's in its own toaster. because of that they do not toast the GF buns. I had the hang over burger, very good and no symptoms. only bummer was they only had one type of chips and basically NO other sides for me.
The kid at the register was very knowledgeable about gluten-free and even informed me that though the fries are considered gluten-free, they are fried with all the other fried foods. I avoided the fries, enjoyed my burger with a gluten-free bun (prepared with separate gloves and not placed on the grill with other buns), and had a side salad. This Celiac person had no troubles!!
The manager couldn't tell me what dressing was gluten free. While corporate says the fries are in their own fryer, he said they do their best, but it's likely not GF. I didn't feel like eating a pile of meat and no salad or side. I was not confident based on their concern that even that could be safe. The reviews from a few years ago said the same, and it appears it hasn't changed. I sat and watched my son eat. I was so flustered, we should have just left and gone elsewhere.
Ordered a burger with gluten free bun and side salad. Had to second guess and ask if the bun was truly gluten free bc it looked so airy and tasty. It was and it was one of the best gluten-free burgers I've ever had. So happy and satisfied, would be five stars but the bun was $2 extra and just seemed a bit pricey, but worth it
Great Service! I have Celiac disease and my husband does not, but prefers gluten free food. The staff was very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My husband ordered a burger with sweet potato fries and they informed him that the fries were cooked in the same fryer as gluten containing food and double checked to make sure this would not make him sick. I ordered the gluten free bun and burger with a side salad mixed in a desperate bowl w/ no croutons. I had no digestive problems! Great food and service! Highly recommend!
Great experience with Kathleen, the manager, in Corpus Christi. When I asked the cashier about GF options, she immediately got the manager to go over all options. She spoke directly to my celiac and offered to bake her french fries. Kathleen made my child's dinner herself and informed us that the fry sauce has seasoning in it that contains wheat ingredients (spud seasoning) so we avoided that. No tummy aches but I can only say it's Celiac safe because the manager was amazing. Not sure if the rest of the staff would know what to do.
I called before I went to ask about gluten free options. Spoke to knowledgeable manager who explained to me how the GF bun is in a sealed wrapper to avoid contamination. The fries are not safe b/c they don't have a dedicated fryer. Glad to know I can still go out for a burger.
Wasn't my style I guess. The GF bun literally fell apart as my son and I tried to eat our burgers. I did like that there were so many options available for toppings to add after getting the burger. Tater tots and fries were OK. Not my favorite. I would go back if someone else wanted to go there, but neither my son nor I would choose to go there again.
The person taking my order was unsure of gluten free procedures. However, they did double check with management and reassured me that my chicken was cooked in a gluten free, dedicated area. The fries are also gluten free. They did cover my food to prevent from cross contamination while waiting for me to pick up. The restaurant itself is very clean. I left a happy customer!
I went there and waited through a long line to get to the register and be told the only thing they could safely offer for Celiacs is fries. Their burgers are not gluten free, and are prepared in the same area with the rest of their food. Even the milkshakes are not safe because they make Oreo cookie shakes and don't have a separate machine for mixing other shakes.
Excellent burger. The bun comes from a local gluten free bakery-it great to eat a burger inside a bun. Fries also delicious
The burger was good and I had no problems except it sat heavy in my stomach. Big selection of condiments.
The cashier was extremely helpful!! We came for a fundraiser event and I was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I was able to get a gluten free bun warmed up in the microwave, no contact with the grill. No fries though since they couldn't guarantee they hadn't switched up and cooked onion rings in the same vat at some point. Celiac friendly if you aren't interested in fries.
Turkey and Hamburgers are great with a very good GF bun that is extra but worth it. NO GF fries. Have to go to Mighty Fine for those.
