We always feel very comfortable eating here. My husband is celiac and have never had a bad experience. The fryers are dedicated gluten free as well. Love this place

I am obsessed with Hat Creek!! I’ve eaten at several locations for many years! Their gluten free buns are the best around! I also have a beef allergy in addition to being celiac. I usually order the fried chicken sandwich (which is gluten free!) or the Turkey burger! Both SO good! One of the only places I can eat fried foods! Can’t say enough good things!!

This place is amazing! Hat Creek is one of our easy to go-tos. My dairy free and gluten free husband enjoys their burgers on a GF bun with no cheese. He likes the tater tots. I get almost the same but with cheese and with sweet potato fries. So good!

The burger was great! The sweet potato fries were good, the regular fries were quite sub- par.

Giving it a 5-Star rating because they educate their employees on the gluten/celiac/allergen issues. So many places say they are gf, but have no clue what it means. We have gf family members & non-gf family members. The non gf were not impressed with the burgers- frozen patties. However, the gf chicken strips, fries, and tator tots were delicious!!

Burgers can be lettuce wrapped or put in a bowl for gluten-free option. ALL SIDES ARE GLUTEN-FREE! The menu even states it and I confirmed with a manager. Including fried pickles. Yes! Fried pickles! Also have sweet potato fries, regular fries, tater tots, and size salad. Yummy safe breaded chicken flashers (strips) too. Shakes are not safe. Outside play area for kids. Long lines on Friday and Saturday nights. Can avoid them by going through the drive-thru. Repeat customer.

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.
