Eaten here so many times without incident. The staff seems to click into gear every time we mention a gluten allergy. They are knowledgeable of their menu and have successfully steered us clear of anything that would make us sick. Their burgers and fries are cooked to perfection on a safe griddle or in a gluten free fryer. They accommodate dairy free customers as well. Whether you get a gluten free bun or a lettuce wrap this is the place for you. I can’t think where else I’d rather have a burger. Seriously though.

This review is really my fault, but is a warning. I’m gluten sensitive but not celiac & I ordered the “Impossible” plant-based burger & GF bun & responded (to her question) that GF was a preference vs allergy to spare them the CC discussion since I’ve eaten there before & love it. Do NOT order this “impossible” plant-based burger, I loved eating it on the yummy GF bun & the sweet potato fries I’ve had before, but this plant-based “burger” gave me the most severe gluten reaction I’ve ever had (extreme indigestion) & turns out to have wheat, yeast extract, etc. I ordered it on a GF bun, but never asked if it was GF, my fault although I wish the order counter person had mentioned the gluten ingredients (ingredients were not on the menu). Great food & service (love the GF buns!) but stay away from the plant-based, yummy Impossible burger!

If you don't like Hopdoddy you're crazy! Their GF bun is delicious, my only complaint is that there aren't more locations because waiting in the lines in 100+ heat is no bueno.

This is our second visit and second location of Hopdoddy's. Very good experience. Red allergy ticket written up and double checked ingredients that they were unsure of. We had shakes at then end of our meal as well and they brought out "red" allergen sheets to confirm which ones could be made gluten free and cleaned machine for us when asked.

Got the Buffalo Bill with fries and no hot sauce. GF bun is very good, but is baked in the same oven as the normal buns. Had a very, very mild reaction, so I think there's a tiny amount of CC, but I didn't regret eating there at all. Very good food.

Absolute worst gluten free bun I have ever had and I have had many. It tasted super sweet, fell apart and I couldn't even finish it that's how bad it was. I SERIOUSLY don't get the hype. Far better gf options in atx!

It's too good to be true!! DO NOT EAT THE GLUTEN FREE BUNS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE CELIAC. Of course, everything is delicious, but I'm suffering the consequences of throwing caution to the wind here. (I'm giving it 2 stars bc it's delicious. Just be careful!)

Overpriced burgers and their gluten free buns disintegrate. I had to eat my burger with a fork. Truffle fries were the best part of our meal. I would have gotten a shake but we spent $70 for 5 burgers, 2 orders of fries, 2 drinks and a beer. If you want specialty burgers without the long lines go to All Star Burger. Their GF buns don't fall apart.

The non-gluten buns are made on the same equipment as their regular buns. This is in fine print on the menu and verified by a manager. Sorry but, taste doesn't trump me getting sick when it comes to the number of stars I leave.

I understand that being "gluten sensitive" is all the rage right now. But I am sick and tired of telling servers that I cannot have gluten ( clinically confirmed; I had a chunk of my intestine cut out) and for them to give attitude or not take it seriously. I ate here and ordered the gluten free bun, changed my burger order to one that didn't have any sauces and STILL got extremely sick.

As a restaurant, you might be getting more people than usual that lie about a health ailment they don't have. BUT IT IS YOUR JOB to absolutely MAKE SURE THEY'RE FOOD IS NOT CONTAMINATED.



I will be happy when this craze is over, but please don't put people's health at risk just because you are tired of accommodating for liars.

GF Fries are the best I've ever had. Still craving them a week later. Had the GF bun twice, and really enjoyed it. They reminded me it's made in kitchen that isn't GF, but I have celiac and am very sensitive and didn't have any reactions. Buns are a little dry (or maybe it was slightly stale) but not enough for me to complain about it. I applaud their effort and overall a great experience!

Staff is not careful. While they understand and acknowledge celiac and gluten allergies/ sensitivities, they are not overly concerned with changing gloves or cleaning surfaces. Ate here once and was fine, second visit I got incredibly sick after 2 bites of a burger with no bun.

Few gluten free options. Fries are gluten free, but burgers must be served on lettuce or on a plate.

Servers seem unhappy and it reflects in the service. Prices are high for what you get...

Ate there about a week ago- it was ok. GF bun is like a Hardees breakfast biscuit (from my non gf days). It was all cold when we got it (5 mins after scheduled time). Milkshakes were gross (gf and non gf). Didnt get sick- wouldn't go back.

I don't like doing negative reviews, but based on everyone's 100% safe votes, I tried this place, and I'm hating life right now. The food was okay but expensive. I had to explain what Celiac disease was and why gluten free was imperative, to the young lady at the register and even though they filled out a red allergy card for my food to be safely made, I was definitely glutened. I would not recommend this restaurant if you have Celiac Disease. I'm not sure if someone there is new, and this was a fluke accident, but they sure jacked me up.

Great options. Dedicated preparation for those with gluten/grain allergies or sensitivity and dedicated fryers. Decently knowledgeable and attentive staff. No negative reactions. Bread is made in house. GF bread is like an old fashioned made from scratch biscuit. My kids liked it but said it crumbles easily. All enjoyed.

A little pricey for a burger, but great food and great options for gluten free. Dedicated frying mde French fries possible and they were from fresh potatoes vs frozen. I had a lettuce wrap and spouse had a gluten free bun. He said it was good. They use a red ticket that screams "allergy" to handling your food, to prevent cross contamination. I would eat here again.

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. The gluten free bread didn't taste cardboard-y. Since they don't have onion rings, the fries are essentially fried in a gluten free oil. They even asked if I had a gluten allergy or dietary choice. Can't wait to go back. I am so happy that I have another place that is safe.

While the restaurant is not a GF facility, the staff took great care in making sure I did not get sick. They referenced the allergen menu for the sauces for me, gave me a GF bun for my burger, and I could eat the Parmesan truffle fries since they are not in a shared fryer. The guy who took my order went back to the kitchen staff to let them know of my celiacs so that they would be careful not to cross-contaminate. The food was delicious, and I did not get sick!

WARNING UPDATE: THEIR FRYERS ARE NO LONGER DEDICATED. They now cook hush puppies made with flour in there.

After reading positive things about multiple locations nationwide, I called this restaurant to ask their protocols in place. I was so impressed. They start with a red ticket for any allergy and the kitchen staff knows that means to get fresh gloves and fresh utensils etc. Buns are made in-house and are tasty. Tons of types of GF fries to chose from. Staff very knowledgeable and willing to accommodate and look up if anything like a sauce is for sure GF.

Have eaten at this location multiple times without issue.

I was very hesitant to eat here based on the reviews on here. However, I went during an off time and had a very good experience. I researched online, as well as spoke with the manager here. He said all of their fries are fried in a dedicated fryer. He said all burgers are safe (sans bun), aside from some of their specialty burgers they do on occasion. They have a gf bun, or lettuce wrap options. I asked about prep of the burgers and the manager said the gluten buns have their own separate warmer. Everything on the grill is gf. I tried the good night/ good cause burger with the gluten free bun, along with the parmesan fries. The burger was juicy with their signature "sassy" sauce. Caramelized onions and jalapenos topped it off. The bun was tasty and soft. However, it didn't quite hold up to being a handheld. The fries were tasty and came with forks to handle the mess. Most importantly, I didn't get sick. I'm not sure how they handle gf in busy crowds, but during this off time, I had a wonderful experience and will be back.

My experience was not great. The burger is underwhelming with no flavor. The gluten free bun is very large and too sweet to compliment a burger. The side salad is prepackaged and there is no quality control in kitchen as carrots had that white haze from being old and lettuce was beyond wilted when it turns black & slimy. On the flip side, the staff was friendly and they do have an allergen booklet. I was told there is not a separate fryer...be careful from what you read on previous reviews.

This place is not gluten free. To much cross contamination. I saw the guy in back handling all the burger as well as the gluten free ones without bothering to change his gloves. So basically he grabbed 4 none gluten burgers before touching my gluten free burger and on top of that he also touched my fries after he touched all the other burgers. I specifically even gave them instructions about my allergy.If you have a celiac disease don’t eat here you’ll probably get sick. I won’t be eating here any more. It’s not worth the risk. I had to throw away the bread and just eat the meat which was basically pointless when ordering a gluten free bun.

So very careful with allergies. A red allergy ticket is created when you order beef is ground on premises so very fresh. They bake their own buns and gluten free are kept separate.

They are knowledgeable about their ingredients and my multiple allergy child can eat as well. Bonus the food is delicious as well!
