This is my go-to burger and fries place. They are very knowledgeable and always mark gluten allergy on the order. When I came the first time, the cashier told me the bbq sauce was unsafe on a specialty burger without me having to ask. They have a separate fryer for fries only and say that they clean the kitchen area for GF orders. I eat here pretty regularly and have never had a reaction. When we order take out, they usually separate my order from the other orders. That being said, there have been times when I got too comfortable and didn’t remind them that they packaged my order next to a regular burger, or put the bbq sauce on my burger despite it being labeled gf. In these times, they were very happy to remake my food and apologetic and I will say they occur infrequently but they do happen. The food is very good and I still feel safer eater here than most places if I’m going to eat out

I am very sorry to be the first person to post a negative review here. I went in a week ago and I am still dealing with the resulting sickness. When I placed my order, I could see all the buns laying on the grill. I noted that I was a Celiac and that I couldn't have any cross contamination. The cashier immediately seemed very knowledgeable, and we discussed all their safe-food handling processes. He explained that the GF buns occupied a different surface than regular buns, and that the fryer was only used for GF items and was cleaned regularly. He told me that if there was a [noticed] cross-contamination event with the fryer, everyone was notified, and they would try to prevent people with gluten allergies from ordering fried items. So I ordered a burger & fries.The receipt clearly stated "Gluten allergy" on it. When my order was ready, the person who gave me my food reassured me by stating that he personally watched the food prep and they did all they could to avoid contamination. I specifically asked if the bun was GF, and he said yes. I believe him since it looked different than my friend's "regular" bun.

The food was great. But, sure enough, shortly after I finished, all the usual symptoms came on.

So I'm sorry to ruin a good thing, but despite what seemed like good precautions and care, this place made me quite ill, so it isn't safe for Celiacs.

They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and were able to serve me delicious sweet potato fries and fried Brussels sprouts! Not really enough options for a full gluten free meal but they can certainly offer some wonderful treats!!

They have a dedicated frier! I just had fries, so I can't speak to burgers, but they were delicious, crispy, and didn't make me sick!

Spoke to a very knowledgeable manager who informed me that the kitchen space is cleaned for a GF order. I have celiac and ate there without any reaction. It was a treat to have the fries and the fried brussel sprouts!

We love the gf buns and fries which are fried in their own oil. Easy to designate gf in their online ordering for pickup. My kids love it.

We’ve eaten at a number of their locations and the food is always consistent. Never gotten sick (gluten intolerant/not celiac). I usually go for a lettuce-wrapped hamburger + fries. They have lots of salads and tacos with corn tortillas that sound like good options. Haven’t tried their GF bread yet, but they do offer this option as well.

I love Gott’s gluten free bread. It’s so good. I ordered a hot dog and they carefully cut up the hot dog so it would fit on the gluten free hamburger bun. It was delicious and they treat allergies seriously. I also got a mint chocolate chip shake- wonderful as well and gf!!

Asked for a gluten free menu due to my wheat allergy and was told everything on the menu can be made gluten free. I asked for the chicken tenders. They said it was safe. I reacted and had to take a full dose of Benadryl. Be careful.
