The staff was very serious about gluten contamination and asked if I was celiac. They stated it would take longer which I was great with. The food was so good and I didn’t get sick. The ambiance, decor and music was fantastic. I was reluctant going since it’s a chain and, well, we are in Hawaii, but I am so glad we did.

We were a little hesitant about coming here due to the mixed reviews, however, it turned out to be a great experience. When we asked about GF, the waiter instantly asked if it was for a severe allergy and did a great job explaining everything. He told us there is a prep area and separate fryer for the fries. It tasted great and no issues. We were very happy.

I ordered here twice. The first time I ate in the restaurant, and the second time I ordered takeout. One of the burgers were gluten free, and the other one was not because my brother wanted one. We opened the bag and one of the boxes said gluten free so I started eating that one, but I soon realized that the bun was different, and my brothers was the same as last time. I got glutened, and my entire vacation was ruined.

Everyone in these reviews said they have gluten free fries so I came. The waiter said they are not gluten free. I went up and asked if they were gluten free or not AGAIN because everyone on this app said they were. I said “are they in a separate fryer” and he said “not today”. Don’t bet on this place to have gluten free fries. Definitely CALL ahead to double check if they are using a segregated fryer that day. They need to stay consistent. I would recommend saying explicitly you have a allergy (obviously celiac isn’t an allergy but it’s just easier to say allergy!). Many of these reviews concern me because I’m sure the fryer was not always dedicated each day these people went since it was not the day I went. I was really upset about this since it’s so hard to find gluten free fries and all of the reviews confirmed there were gf fries here. Also, to make matters worse my burger was burnt. However, the gluten feee bun did not fall apart like they usually do which was probably the only good aspect of this meal. Waiter was really weird with me when I went up to him to confirm again they were not gluten free. He forgot my Mayo and charged my boyfriend for the entire tables bill even though we split the check. I would recommend going somewhere else!

I honestly never thought I would go to a chain/theme restaurant on my trip to Hawaii (or anywhere really!) because it's just not my preference, BUT finding gluten free food here has been challenging!

Based on reviews this felt like the safest place for a burger.

The burger was delicious and the bun was tasty. They didn't ask me if I wanted it grilled on a separate surface, but I had no reaction and it's been 5 days. I feel this is a safe option.

The highlight of our visit (other than the dedicated fryer for fries) was when we ordered from the GF menu and the waitress asked if it was an intolerance or celiac. She explained that for celiac, they take extra precautions in the kitchen. The manager brought my son’s celiac meal separately and everyone was happy to answer our questions. The GF buns were some of the best I have had.

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.

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.

They have a gluten free menu. I had a cheese burger and fries. The bread was actually alright! Overall a tasty meal.

Reassuringly the server brought it over and said Gluten free burger and fries. I hate it when they just put it down without mentioning it.

I think you could eat here and not be worried.

Just thinking back I don't think there were many vege options. Maybe 1 or 2 items. So not ideal if that's you.
