Please PLEASE do NOT eat the specialty fries available even if it says GF on the menu. They’re in fact not. The waitress confirmed that they fry the fries in the same fryer they use for all other foods (including gluten). I did get a chicken sandwich on a gluten free bread. It was ok, but was just really disappointed about the fries.

Ate a burger and fries! It was made with allergy precautions. Burger includes a gf bun. Everything was very delicious. Staff made me feel safe.

They now have a gluten free menu with a lot of options. You can get a burger with a gluten free bun. Their milkshakes and the Cool Breeze are gluten free; the fries too.

NOT good for celiac/or sensitive. Everything is shared. Complete cross contamination, there is not a dedicated fryer here so this is false advertisement as well. πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž

I had the basic burger (can’t remember the exact name) on a gluten free bun and fries. Confirmed dedicated fryer. Definitely nice to be able to enjoy a good ol’ burger and fries. As we all know with Celiac, sometimes it’s the little things. Our server was kind and knowledgeable. There were lots of options so good crowd pleaser!

Ate here after a graduation so pretty late. Felt really unconfident about everything but the server assured me that the allergy fries are cooked in their own fryer. I just got regular fries with some type of vinaigrette. Didn’t get sick but could’ve had a better meal. I don’t feel safe with items that have to be touch by hand like cheese or ketchups on the tables. I’m just very wary of people cross contaminating like cooks being busy and not changing gloves or when people touch their foods with the ketchup top. Me just being me but with how cautious I am, this spot didn’t get me sick. They have gluten free tacos and such but I just had something in my gut telling me not to so I don’t know. Ask your server about any questions!!!

I’m here now based on the app saying they had a gluten free menu. The menu and waitress show they have gluten friendly items so they may have cross contamination and don’t have a separate fryer.

I eat there often as they have a dedicated gf fryer and I can actually order fries! A decent amount of gf options and staff is knowledgeable about cross contact.
