After reading some bun reviews, I was leary about trying them, but mine was great. Has a bit of a honey overtone, so it might not fit all of the burger options. It worked treated with a cheeseburger. The bacon-tomato jam is not GF!! (Bummer) Regular fries are made in a GF fryer. Parmesan & Truffle oil are also GF. Huzzah! Sweet Potato fries are also not GF. (Again, Bummer.)

The line was out the door but moved relatively quick. I like the layout of this place because while you’re in line you pass the bar and can order a drink while you wait. Everyone was friendly. I had a lettuce wrapped burger and thought it was really good. The truffle fries are questionably gluten free but I had some and didn’t have a problem. The food is overall yummy.

The bun was pretty darn awful and not comparable to the other buns they serve. It has a hunny taste that overpowers a lot of what you’re eating and fell apart when picked up. The staff was super kind and very knowledgeable about gluten

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.

The classic cheeseburger was SO GOOD. I had it wrapped in lettuce and the lettuce to burger ratio was just right. The ginger lemonade is delicious and the fries were amazing. The staff was knowledgeable and showed concern for my allergy (celiac) and I had a wonderful experience.

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!)

Decent food. Line is always takes forever to get through, safe to eat at IF you DO NOT EAT THE GLUTEN FREE BUNS. Go with the lettuce wraps instead.

Had the buffalo bill burger as a lettuce wrap and fries-delish! Didn't want to mess with the gf bun being cooked with gluten buns, so I passed. Will definitely go back when in town! *Be prepared to wait in line if it's a popular time.

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.

Delicious food, but many of the specialty burgers' ingredients contain gluten and it is difficult to track down which ingredients are safe. Fries are naturally gluten-free and very tasty.

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!

Excellent fries in dedicated fryer. Burger was great, but bun was pretty crumbly. Otherwise great food! The servers really understand gluten free and cross contamination.

Delicious homemade gluten free biscuit like buns and tasty burgers and fries. I’m in heaven!! My brother wanted me to add that his Nashville hot fried chicken sandwich was amazing too. The Nashville hot isn’t gluten free but for anyone else looking to come with their gf siblings, partners, friends, etc

Great place to go for GF options! I always get my burger in a bowl and have never had an issue. Ask the cashier for the gluten free menu. When ordering let them know you have a gluten allergy and they will flag your order. I always ask them to change their gloves also. Love this place!!
