*edit to add I got sick anyway* So, the food itself was delicious. Knowledgeable about CC and dedicated fryer for the tots. But, they charge you an extra $1.50 for literally half the sandwich that my gluten eating friends got. And it's already a $13 grilled cheese in the first place. If you go here skip the sandwich and just go with the loaded tots or something.

Amazing food!! Perfect crispy tater tots. Unusual or more classic grilled cheese depending on your preference. I recommend the fig goat cheese and prosciutto. It was amazing. Staff knew exactly what to do. 3 celiacs did not get sick!!

Great little place! Grilled cheese sandwiches with a twist, a delicious twist. I got the grilled cheese burger - ground beef, pickles, tomato, and LOTS of cheese on gf bread with tator tots. Separate oven. Separate utensils. One employee handled everything. It was awesome. And the sandwiches were HUGE; I couldn't finish all of mine. Definitely loved them! Everything is available gf except the mac 'n' cheese and anything with lobster (since that's breaded). Today, the poutine tots were not gf because of a mix-up with a supplier who sent the wrong soy sauce - but the waitress told us that immediately and without missing a beat.

After all the positive reviews I was so excited to try it out with my two celiac kids. It wasn’t busy when we were there. The staff was very knowledgeable. The food tasted great but unfortunately we all got sick. All three of us who are celiac are experiencing gluten exposure symptoms. We definitely got cross contamination.

Perfect for a quick but tasty lunch. The buffalo chicken grilled cheese was amazing. Most of the menu candidates be done gf and they have a separate prep space.

Amazing! Knowledgable and kind staff and the sandwiches were delicious! My family of 4 really enjoyed eating here on vacation July 2018 and my son mentions the sandwich he had here often. Wants to visit DC again to be able to eat here.

This place was excellent! Everything on their menu can be modified for gluten free except the Mac and cheese. They don’t even have a fryer so cc as far as that goes is not a concern. The bread was so good my daughter double checked it was gf! A manager came right over to us and ensured us it was and also offered her some gf mini chocolate cakes free of charge. We were really impressed. Great food in a great location

Good food and a great place for trusted GF meals! Owner and servers are very aware of need for truly GF food and take all precautions to prevent cross-contamination. Most menu items are available as GF, just ask the server. As a bonus, Tuesday evenings are completely GF - all gluten-containing items are removed for the evening. It’s a very popular spot for GF get-togethers. Highly recommended.

We ate here with my son who has celiac and is super sensitive, and he had no issues. Big win for on-the-road eating!!! So far it’s one of his favorite things about DC ☺

Ate here based on reviews and believe I received a gluten free sandwich, but something must have gone wrong because I got very ill. The sandwich was fantastic, but not at the cost that came with it.

Ordered a GF sandwich and tots. Server seemed knowledgeable about cross contamination. My meal was delivered by a different server than took my order. Halfway through, my original server arrived and said I’d been given a non-GF meal by mistake. She ordered me a new meal and sent the second one back when it was also non-GF. The kitchen’s 3rd attempt was correct, but I was already feeling ill by that point. The server and managed were very apologetic and comped by meal but the damage was done. Not sure what’s going on in the kitchen, but can’t recommend them without a clearer system to track allergy meals.

The gluten free bread was so good! My non-gf husband couldn't tell a difference. Only two sandwiches couldn't be made gluten free. Fun atmosphere, knowledgeable & helpful staff. Didn't get sick!

This place was incredible. Had the the chicken parm grilled cheese, and my boyfriend had the lobster grilled cheese (so obviously I tried both). Omg, both were SO. GOOD. I didn't have any Celiac response, but I did go on their "Gluten Free Takeover" night when everything was GF, so I can't speak to their usual ability to avoid cross contamination. That being said, I spoke to a manager who said they frequently have Celiacs in there and obviously they had a whole night just for gluten free people, so I feel comfortable with their ability to serve Celiacs any night, so I'll be going back! So delicious.

GF grilled cheese and a dedicated fryer. Had the poutine tots... omg yum! It was a bit busy. They didn’t cut my sandwich (to decrease cross contamination). Tomato soup is a plus with your grilled cheese sandwich.

Amazing! Almost all of the sandwiches (except one I think) can be made gf! Also got the loaded tots and tomato soup and all were amazing and taken seriously in the kitchen! Definitely recommend for celiacs in DC - also is a favorite of non celiac friends

Staff was very knowledgeable and can make most every sandwich gluten-free. And they made us think it wasn't really a burden to do it. The fryer is gluten-free, so the tater tots are an option.

Staff was lovely. Extremely knowledgeable, made grilled cheese is separate tray, changed gloves to handle it, etc. Have gf fryer for tater tots. Was delicious as well. Would definitely recommend it whether gluten free or not. Based on two visits.

They use Rise gf bread. Preparation on trays so each prep surface is clean. Would be even better if they had dairy free cheese.

I'm Celiac. This was the best grilled cheese. Loved the tots. Service was excellent. My husband is allergic to soy and the servers went out of their way to learn what he could have and when they noticed I was getting something with soy they came back to note that he couldn't have what I was ordering due to the soy. I definitely felt safe and I felt like they were very knowledgeable.

Excellent grilled cheese! I had the jalapeno bacon, 4 cheese grill cheese with tater tots. The owner was super nice and while we were waiting to be seared inside he asked us if he could get us some drinks and offered for us to sit outside. I highly recommend this place.!

Sandwiches were good, but nothing special. Cant say they were 100% safe for celiac. Didn't like that they brought out the GF plates out touching the gluten plates. Also, a little pricey for what we got.

Was single handily the best grilled cheese I've eaten. Service was awesome, and I loved the restaurant itself. I had a 10 minute wait for a big party, which made it even better. Very accommodating, and I definitely will come back.

Delicious! Tater tots are GF and all but one sandwich (can't remember which, possibly the lobster) can be made with GF bread. Indoor & outdoor seating. Knocked off a star because, for a seemingly popular place, there really isn't a waiting area.

Staff was knowledgeable about gluten free. The sandwich and Tator tots were really good. Ordered a chicken Parmesan without the crumbles. My Nina tested it gluten free plus I did not get sick.

We arrived at 2:50 on a Sunday, because the app said open till 4. Which normally they are. But the sign said closing at 3 today. The staff was very accommodating and did not bat an eye that they were about to close. Food was yummy! We will return our next trip toD.C.

Wonderful Sandwich options-they were able to make most sandwiches with the gluten free bread that was hearty. Sides were all gluten free.
