    Almost everything can be made gluten free. The Fondue Turkey panini was amazing. Waffle fries are delicious and oven baked. Great customer service as well!

    Delicious food and reasonably priced. They are very cautious about food allergies. I had the meat lovers sandwich, hold the tomatoes and onions (preference) and chipotle ranch (soy). The gluten free bread was tasty and didn't fall apart. The sweet potato waffle fries were yummy!

    I was diagnosed with Celiac 14 years ago and live in So Cal so this place is a find! All of the meats and cheeses etc. on their menu are gluten-free you just have to ask for the gluten-free bread! I had the spicy tuna melt and it was to die for! The fries are not fried and the sweet potato fries are so good. They also make their own gluten-free choc chip cookie...yum! Oh yes....and then there is the Cactus Chili Soup. AMAZING!!!! Had a bowl at the restaurant and went Back to the hotel with a quart! Can’t say enough about the food and the service in this place. All top-notch!

    Hadn't been here for quite some and the meal wasn't executed as well it had been in the past. They also changed the GF bread, which I'm not a fan of. I found out the business was sold about one year ago. It's apparent without the watchful eye and hands on approach of previous owner that things aren't held to the high standards as they were previously.

    If you let them know you have an allergy/celiac they will take every precaution to make yours safe. They have gluten free bread and many other options like soup or baked wings. Fries can also be gluten free.

    Delicious! I had the Philly steak Panini with fries all I could say is I wish there was more of it. I'm celiac & did not get sick and I was extremely happy with all of it. I will go there again when I'm in the area.

    Sadly they changed owners. Gluten-free bread is not the same bread they had used previously (actual sandwich bread) They basically took a Udis hamburger bun and made it into a panini, which makes for a horrible sandwich as it fell apart which we all know is the normal with Udis bread. Sweet potato fries were still raw and not cooked thoroughly. Too bad this used to be a great place for those with celiac disease. We won't be going out of the way now when we're in the area to dine here. Don't waste your time or money.

    Had a great philly steak panini! Amazing GF bun. Can have waffle fries or sweet potato fries, just not curly fries. Owner/ manager was super sweet & helpful. Dedicated GF space as well. Highly recommend it!

    This place is gold!! Everything with the exception of the curly fries could essentially be made gluten free. I was so glad we went here, we even got there a half hour before they opened and they had no problem with taking us. The cashier was the sweetest Indian lady of all time, super super nice personality and genuinely cared about my celiac. Highly highly recommend, 5 star service and food!

    Hear people raving about the cactus chili (yes, cactus) every time I eat there. I always get a panini and fries. The fries are nice and crispy even though they're actually baked. The meats are all hand cut in house...no processed coldcuts here. Just ask for gluten-free bread.

    Went to Hot Krust TWICE while on holiday and it was delicious both times! The manager is aware of celiac disease and asks if you have a gluten allergy when you order. The Gobble Gobble Turkey sandwich was delicious and I felt amazing afterwards!!

    This place is great and the sandwiches are some of the best I have had! If you tell them you are gluten free you have the option of them preparing your order separately so there is so cross contamination. I recommend the Gobble gobble turkey it tastes just like Thanksgiving!

    Love, love, love this place! Ironic that a place called Hot Krust has an awesome GF menu. Paninis and salads are awesome -- as are the spicy spiral fries and DON'T miss the gf cactus chili! Owner is friendly and allergy attentive -- it's a must lunch stop every time we're in Orlando.

    I'm gluten intolerant and I have never experienced a restaurant with such great service and so knowledgeable. Awesome food. The staff/owners are awesome and very nice. We also experienced their own daughters with an exchange student, the young ladies were very respectful and very sweet with the student. Will continue coming and highly recommend.

    This place is the best! So rarely can you find a place that serves gluten free sandwiches & french fries, too, not to mention! I am always asked, upon ordering, if its a gluten allergy, indicating they take cross contamination very seriously. The owner is usually present when I've come here & he's always cheerful. And of course the food is great, too!

    The staff is friendly and highly knowledgable about gf needs. I ordered the Gobble Gobble Turkey with waffle fries. They take extra measures to prevent cross-contamination for the panini sandwiches and the fries are baked so no worries about shared fryers. I loved my sandwich and fries! The price was decent for the amount and quality of food.

    Excellent - I'm in the OCCC area multiple times a year, and this is now a go to. The tuna panini is phenomenal, and the baked sweet potato fries a great. All of the sauces they have by the condiments are gluten free and delicious.

    One of the best GF options in Orlando! ALL paninis (except those with blue cheese) can be made entirely GF with Udi's bread. Potato and sweet potato waffle fries can be baked separately. Had the Champagne Shrimp panini -- fantastic!! No symptoms after eating here. And best of all, incredibly affordable and quick option! Highly recommend!
