I’ve been here a dozen times and have never had an issue. The flavor cards in front of the freezer show what is GF. Everyone who works there as gladly used a new scoop from a new carton they got from the back.

Really great ice cream and costumer service. They have gf clearly labeled on the menu and scooped from a new container from the back with a clean scoop to prevent cross-contact.

Numerous times, a kind friend or coworker will stop by here and ask for dairy-free and gluten-free for me, and NUMEROUS TIMES the employees have sent them with the Texas Sheet Cake, which, just as it sounds, has ribbons of cake swirled in it. There are gluten-free options here, but it’s clear to me that gluten-awareness isn’t a part of their training program.

They are great. If you ask them for an “allergy scoop” they will use a different scoop and open a new container of the GF flavor that you would like to order.

I was excited to try their ice cream but they use the same scoop in all the ice creams so even the gluten free options are contaminated. Do not recommend if you have an allergy

Fantastic ice cream & nice selection of drinks. Do let them know to keep it gluten free when you order or they will automatically garnish with a wedge of waffle cone. Nice, stylin’ outdoor patio

Lots of great flavors, and very accommodating about getting a fresh container from the back to scoop for me. Just ask for an allergy scoop! It was great. Haven’t gotten ice cream out in years.

So many GF options! Even some cake/cookie mix-ins are GF which are normally off limits. The server gladly went to the back and scooped from a fresh tub when requested. Highly recommend the gooey butter cake ice cream!

Informed the staff of my gluten allergy and they were great. Went over all of the GF options, opened a new container of ice cream and had a new scoop to avoid cross contamination. Changed gloves multiples times during the process. Was delicious and did not get sick!

Lot of gf flavors that aren’t usually gluten free! My favorites are the peanut butter with chocolate flecks, and the cookies and cream! Overpriced but honestly worth it it’s so good

Love this place! So many options! I didn’t realize they put a waffle chip in the bowl with your ice cream. So just fyi….they were great and made it again. The guy who made it said he completely understood and that his mom has celiac. Ice cream was delicious!
