Food was delicious as usual. Dedicated GF fryer for fries, tots and chicken. Great location and place for kids to play.

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.

Hat Creek Burger on 79 in Round Rock is the best for a gluten free burger. When they opened, the did not have gluten free buns, so I brought my own and ordered the "burger bowl" which is (for me) a turkey burger with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and cheese. After a few times marching in there with my own bun, they have all gluten free buns now! They have a separate area to prepare gluten free food. I believe all the condiments (sauces) are now gluten free, but be sure to ask, because one sauce used to have gluten in it. French fries are cooked in the dedicated gluten free fryer. Great service, fast at the drive through, and if you have little kids, a wonderful playground for them outside. LOVE LOVE LOVE HAT CREEK! Safe for celiacs? Yes I think so. I've eaten there dozens of times and never gotten "glutened" unlike some places who say they are gluten free.

As far as I know, all the food is gluten free but ASK, always.

Almost everything can be made GF (I usually get a burger bowl). They have a dedicated fryer so I can even get fried pickles! They have a dedicated mixer for milk shakes. Love it!

I have celiac disease and told the lady taking our order. She assured me everything is gluten free and took my order. I ordered the chicken nuggets and sweet potato fries. Both on the menu are gluten free. when I received the food my boyfriend also had ordered a regular hamburger. And they put both my gluten free food in the bag with the hamburger. Wrapped up of course, but as any Celiac will know it being in the same bag is risky and not very thoughtful of cross-contamination. I should have known it then but I ate it anyway. And now today I'm suffering the consequences. If you have celiac disease I would not recommend eating here.they obviously do not consider cross-contamination while making the food or bagging it. Eat at your own risk.

Hat Creek has a pretty decent selection but I have to say based on my last visit the staff is really untrained on even the basics. Get there early enough to be able to explain exactly what you need.

All of their fries items are gluten free! Including fried pickles, sweet potato fries and chicken nuggets. The cashier was incredibly accommodating when I asked if they could change gloves to make my burger. There is no bun option, but I never feel safe ordering a gf bun. They have a great play area for the kids too!

I am Celiac. I owned a 100% Gluten Free restaurant in Maui (until COVID-19 and the insane local government killed it). I decided to semi retire an move to Texas. Of all the gluten free burgers I have tasted, this is by far the best burger. The bun makes me question if it’s really gluten free (it’s that good). If you see a Hat Creek restaurant on your travels, take my advice, stop and have the GF burger. Even if you are not hungry!
