We have been here on several occasions and each visit has been great. They offer a separate GF menu and take allergies very serious. They also had a separate fryer for GF french fries.

I used this app to find a restaurant that was Celiac-friendly in Waikiki and could accommodate a part for 14 people. Hard Rock Cafe was great! Even with the large amount of gluten-filled orders others purchased, I never once encountered cross-contamination. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable, everyone loved the food (my gluten-free meal was delicious), and everyone was happy. I did not get glutened. The live music was excellent decorations were so cool as well, especially the gigantic wall of guitars.

Waitress was very knowledgeable and understood which seasonings were gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer for the fries and tortilla chips so we could also get the nachos.

The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free menu items and procedures. I had a burger on a GF bun and they omitted the cheese due to my lactose intolerance, as well. Fries were safe and they had a variety of GF menu options. I felt very safe eating there and did not get sick. Even a small amount of cross contamination can cause illness, but this place did a great job! I did not feel like a burden, as I do at some other places when making specific dietary requests.

Let me start by saying that their gluten free burgers are amaze balls!!!! Not only do they have a gluten free menu 🙏🏻 but the items available are plenty!! Seriously folks the burger was gigantic and the GF bun was really delicious. We have eaten here twice in the last week and plan on it being our last meal here on vacation too!

Dedicated GF menu. I impressed upon the server the importance of GF due to “allergy” but I definitely experienced some mild symptoms of cross contamination. The food was really good.

Awesome service. The staff was knowledgeable about GF procedures and ensured no cross contamination. We tried the burger, wings and ribs. My daughters loved it. We were surprised to find this in an international chain but it was great. We’d come back any time.

Ate here three times and did not get sick. I get sick if I get even a little cross contamination. I had no problem here. They have a gluten free fryer for the fries which were great. Great burgers with a good gluten free bun. Servers were really knowledgeable and helpful with gluten free. Server said they have a separate gluten free prep area and color coded cutting boards for gluten free prep. They even had a delicious gluten free brownie sundae for dessert. I highly recommend this place.

Dedicated gluten free menu and our server was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Servings are massive which is a downfall of most American eateries.

It took a little longer for our meal, but that was because they had to go start up a new grill for us. I appreciated their caution. We didn't get sick, and the hamburger was delicious. Disappointed the fries weren't in a dedicated frier, but the coleslaw was delicious. Management and staff were friendly and helpful.

When I ordered a gluten free burger, the chef knew what to replace in the dish, not only the bun

A few options, although not the best. The menu won't tell you but they do offer corn tortillas, so the fajitas are an option as well as the fish tacos. Like I said, not a lot to choose from but after a margarita or two you may not care. Order the fajitas and enjoy the fantastic location.

yesterday

Oct 2019 - the staff were really nice but for a celiac they could only offer one gluten free option, a burger called the big cheese burger, as other burgers could have sauces not suitable for coeliacs. The bread was the biggest issue as it had the texture of a crouton, it was so hard and unsuitable for a burger. They also failed to inform me that the chips were not coeliac safe.

Gluten free menus available. Quite a few choices for main course. Only Ice cream for dessert. Only one starter option.... chicken wings. The ribs were enormous!! Good basic American food. Can’t complain.

Had to ask for gluten free options. Server didn’t understand the exact reasoning or what I needed. I ordered the steak and green beans. The beans had no seasoning, but I fixed that. The steak was pretty good. No sickness or reaction from this meal!

Extensive GF menu and our server was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My daughter and husband both have Celiac disease and were thrilled to learn they could have the fries, due to the restaurant having a dedicated fryer. My husband had the salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans. Said the fish and beans were excellent, the potatoes a bit bland. My daughter had a burger and fries. She said the GF bun was good (it didn't fall apart immediately) and the meal was huge, so she only ate ~half. Hubby was happy, as he could then take her leftovers for lunch the next day. Will definitely be back!

I had the opposite breakfast experience, the hostess suggested that the chef could make accommodation but the waitress talk to the kitchen and told me there was nothing I could eat there. I would have thought at least an omelet could have been made for me. Very disappointing

They do have gluten free buns. Some things were inconsistent between server and menu. For example BBQ sauce I was told was gluten free but not listed that way in menu. Food was okay, but not as good as other Hard Rocks. Service was on the slow side.

Requested kitchen manager but instead retail manager came to table...totally clueless and advised us that the kitchen manager was on a conference call and we could wait if we wanted..Walked out!

Went for breakfast not expecting much. They have gluten free buns which I selected to use for the breakfast sandwich. The waitress explained that when they put something in as gluten free, it goes to a whole separate area of the kitchen. Their breakfast potatoes (“home fries”) are made in a separate fryer. I was so satisfied I couldn’t even finish my food! Would definitely go again. This celiac had no reactions.

I had a burger and fries and almost immediately after finishing my meal, I got sick at the restaurant. I was told that the frier was just for fries, and I’m not sure if the burger got me or the fries, but it was not a good experience. Thought I would write this review as many of the others said they had a good experience. I’m not sure if my case was a unique one, but I wanted to share my experience for those in the future to approach with caution.

They have a gluten free menu so you’re not stuck fishing through the normal menu trying to find the GF options. Only issue is that they have fries listed as a side for GF when in fact they can’t offer their fries to Celiacs as it’s not from a dedicated fryer. Other than that it was great.

No gluten-free Menu, but staff was able to tell us what rhey can do gluten-free. Our two girls (both celiac) had dinner and stood healthy. Waiting time was very long and it was very cold in the room. Extreme climatisation is normal in USA. But this restaurant was the world champion in making their guests freeze. We left it as soon as possible. Therefore we didn't really enjoyed the evening.

They have a gluten free menu. We had chicken wings, dip, steaks, veggies and mashed potatoes. No reaction! The waitress knew about the kitchen but didn’t really understand gluten free. I asked many questions before we ordered. It was very yummy and we’d visit again but ask questions just to make sure.

I read the reviews for this location and was hopeful that my son could order lunch here. The Gluten free menu was extensive. After questioning the server, we were told there was not a dedicated fryer. And when I asked if his burger could be cooked in a designated spot on the grill, he recommended we go to another restaurant. Fail.

We were in Dallas last summer and had a very blah experience at their HRC... boring memorabilia, no GF menu, music blasting was pop and Motown (far from what I envision a HRC to mostly play)... so, I was indifferent about coming here. My wife and I got here for opening at 11am. First in was great because we knew we could look around without bothering anyone. Our server was Asia. She was awesome. Really friendly and personable. This HRC does have a separate GF menu! We placed our order and then toured the place. This HRC is pretty big and I was impressed with the decor and the music selections. I got the Original HRC burger and fries. Delicious and no issues. Side of baked beans was a highlight, tasted like a cross between beans and meatless chili. Cole slaw very good. My wife is a celiac, and is highly sensitive. She got the BBQ pulled pork topped with cole slaw on a GF roll, with french fries. She liked it a lot and had NO adverse reaction at all. In short, this was totally worth coming to! We had a great experience and I would recommend HRC-ATL to anyone. Great job you guys and Asia you rock!

The staff was very friendly. GF menu had several options, for the price I wasn’t too impressed with my dish. I had the salmon, mashed potatoes, and salad. I sent back the salad because the lettuce was very wilted (seemed as though it was prepared too far in advance), green beans were subbed and they tasted par boiled with little flavor. Ambiance was a , floor was wet and it was very loud...

There's a separate GF menu ( with plenty of options ). I got the pulled pork sandwich. The roll looked great but as soon as I picked up the sandwich the roll fell apart ! Still it's nice that they have a roll however it falls short. It wasn't too dry but I've certainly had better.

I am as shocked as I could be. I don’t trust anyone when eating out!!! I’m celiac and very sensitive. I asked for the manager once we were seated told MJ (who looked like Kenya) I was celiac. I ordered a burger on a GF with steamed veggies. Manager told me to stay away from fries, so I did. He also told me he would tell the kitchen staff to change their gloves. My husband and kids ordered the nachos when they came out the manager came right over and said I couldn’t eat them (which I already knew) here I am 4 hours later and I did not get sick!!!! Service was Great and Glad I didn’t get sick!! Good luck

In Lyon for the FIFA women’s World Cup. I had dinner here last night. It took over an hour for it to arrive. I told them multiple times I need gluten free due to being Coeliac. It came out on a gluten free bun (I think) It was a different bun to everyone else but there was no flag to say gluten free and they did not have a separate menu. I am awake all night. The meal was not safe and now I’m in a bad way. Headache, belly ache and bodily effects! Be careful! I did ask them multiple staff and times etc but you never know!
