I love this place. It’s my new favorite GF burger. We go so much now, they know my daughter’s name! Super friendly staff, and they know their stuff. Fries are delicious, and their sauces are great! Also, I’ve been doing low carb and their Paleo bowl is great!

Let them know it is an allergy when you order and they will prevent cross contamination. GF is marked on the menu and they have a dedicated fryer. The chicken flashers were good and I even tried fried pickles for the first time.

Hamburger bun did not fall apart and the meat had a good, fresh flavor. Chicken nuggets are very good too. Love the sauces especially the fry sauce. Staff is always friendly.

They are very gluten friendly. All of the sides are gluten-free and nothing with gluten is fried so the French fries are safe. GF is marked on the menu. The salad dressings are gluten-free, but the self-serve sauces over by the fountain machine are not. It appears that the grain burger is not gluten-free. But there are options for meat-eaters as noted on the menu.

Almost everything is GF. The Flashers are great. The hamburgers are good. All the sides are GF. For some crazy reason, however, the have all these GF options but no GF buns. Still really good.

Great chicken flashers (freshly breaded nuggets) and fries, plus great selection of sauces including fry sauce, ranch and BBQ. Fries portion is large so I topically get 4 piece flashers. Nice to have place where no wheat goes into the fryers.

They have some great options and the fact that they have a dedicated fryer is awesome!! The burgers can be made with a GF bun or lettuce wrap. Just be careful and ask about the sauces. There is one of their special sauces that does have wheat. I know the fry sauce is safe (and delicious) though!

I had the Chicken Flashers (like nuggets, but bigger) and fried pickles and tater tots. All the breaded items are gluten-free!! The food was good, but I’m not giving five stars because the breading is a little heavy on the pepper. It didn’t keep me from eating it, but gave my husband bad heartburn that night.

I am extremely allergic to gluten, and this place gave me such a huge smile! I haven't had fast food or gluten-free tater tots in over 8 years. Being able to get gluten free fast food with fried chicken, tater tots, and french fries for all under $12 through a drive-thru was the absolute best experience! I will forever remember Hat Creek, and definitely plan sharing it with my friends and plan on coming back! Info: Great staff. Multiple locations. Drive-thru. Online ordering. Gluten-free fried everything. Cheap prices. Not sure about buns or sauces, so I would ask them.

They mark all their GF items very clearly in the menu. Great place if you’re looking for something quick AND safe!

Awesome quick option for gf. Is rather expensive. Wish they would carry a gf bun for the burgers because the burgers are amazing. Tried chicken tenders too they were dry. Recommend the pickles burgers fries and tots. Make sure to check the sauces are gf. I believe it’s the happy sauce that is not

My 8 year old has celiac. We ordered 4 chicken flashers. These are double the size of grilled nuggets we get at other drive thru places that are celiac friendly. She loves them!! We also ordered tator tots. We don’t get these when we eat out because most places share fryers. The meal was $9 and it was not a kids meal. This price included the drink. I have no problem paying this price for my celiac kiddo to enjoy a meal out. We love it. The ranch dressing is amazing. Having good ranch can make or break a meal. I’ve been twice and had the little hat both times. Welcome to Little Elm. We are glad to have you here.

Just wanted to add another glowing review of Hat Creek Burger!! I've had their chicken flashers, fried pickles (how fun to have gf fried pickles!!), sweet potato fries, tater tots, lettuce wrapped burgers, breakfast bowl (chose, egg, bacon, and avocado), and, today, the paleo burger (pattie, sweet potatoes, spinach, and avocado in a bowl)! It's all been great! One or two of their dipping sauces are not gluten free, so be sure to clarify. Otherwise, it's a great place for gf!!

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.

I got to the front of the line and was observing the open kitchen. Burgers and buns were on separate grills but the prep area was shared with the buns and toppings - when I asked if there was a separate area for GF orders to avoid cross-contamination I got a confused look. She told me that everything else was GF and would tell them but I felt really uncomfortable and left.
