Clearly marked GF on the menu. Fried pickles and loaded tots are amazing! Love that they have GF fried chicken.

So far so good. Been eating there once a month for the past 3 months and I haven’t had a reaction. I have celiac disease and extremely sensitive. Burger, fries, and shake are awesome. It's the place to go if your craving a burger with a bun instead of a protein style with is just a lettuce wrap. Will definitely keep going back

The gf bun was delicious and doesn’t crumble like a lot of others. The fried chicken nuggets are also gluten free and you can tell they are made with real chicken. Would definitely recommend and I will be coming back.

First time visiting Hat Creek. I was so excited to try gluten free fried pickles and fried chicken nuggets. The nuggets were juicy on the inside and crispy on the out. The fried pickles are sliced and we’re done to perfection. They have a great “fry sauce” too. Well worth the visit. I will absolutely be back the next chance I get. I may request it as a special birthday meal - I don’t live in the area but I would say well worth the 3 1/2 hour drive to eat here again (I was down visiting family this trip). I’ve been trying to figure out how I can get back there again before I go home.

Their gluten-free bun tastes awesome! The chicken flashers and sides are gluten-free as well and taste great.

This is the only place I know of where I can get a GF fried chicken sandwich or fried chicken nuggets through a drive through!

Even a couple of milkshakes are GF 😭💓

All fried foods are gluten free. Separate toaster for GF buns.

For the main food, only the regular buns have gluten.... everything else is gluten free, so anything ordered with a GF bun is GF. All fried items are gluten free.

Tasty food! Best GF buns in SA!

Hat Creek has great chicken flashers. They are how I would make fried boneless chicken chunks if I did it myself. Their fryer is gluten free so you can also enjoy tater tots, fries, and fried pickles. I’m glad I stopped in.

Absolutely amazing place! ALL of the fried items (tots, fries, chicken, etc) are all GF. Fryers are dedicated and I was assured that everything was GF. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and could speak to the presence of gluten, dairy, etc in all of the menu items which was impressive. Bonus: awesome outdoor covered seating that has fans and plenty of hand washing stations/hand sanitizer setups. I will definitely be back regularly, this place is awesome!

This is the only fast food place I can eat without getting sick. Their chicken flashers and all the fried sides are gluten free because they use a corn based batter and there’s no cross contamination. All the sauces are Gf except for the mustard. Some shakes are gf but there is cross contamination from the shake machine.

This is my first time eating out after officially being diagnosed celiac. They didn’t offer to cook in a separate area, but happily obliged with a gluten free bun. It’s Saturday night and the place is a madhouse, so I wonder if they might provide a little more special attention at a less busy time? I love Hat Creek and was happy to find the bun was pretty good. Their menu says everything should be safe. We’ll see how I feel in a few hours.
