Eat here regularly. I order the GF chicken tacos with fries every time I go from their GF menu. Fries are made in a dedicated fryer, so they’re GF. Manager recommended the Cobb salad dressing for dipping sauce, which is vinegar based (and I love) instead of the Ranch dressing (which is NOT gluten free at this restaurant). Make sure you state you have a gluten allergy when ordering. I love Islands!

No gf buns so like someone else said, bring your own. They say they have separate fryers for fries and they cook gf items separately.

The staff was very knowledgeable about GF and cross contamination. The server wore gloves for my meal and made a point of not touching my plate with the same hand as my husband. The hamburger bun was one of the best I’ve had - it was moist and didn’t crumble apart

We eat here often. I typically order a burger on a gluten free bun with no issues. They also offer gluten free french fries.

Amazing service and they took my daughter’s allergy very seriously. Also, the manager hand walked our food out. They even insisted to get her a gf bun, even though we didn’t order it. She was one happy camper with her gf cheeseburger and fries. She didn’t get their ice cream but was so excited to know she had the option if she wanted to.
