Awesome roast beef and gluten free buns. The buns are pretty good, but they are a $1.50 upgrade now. (If you take it to go, toast your buns with some butter at home) I've eaten here several times over the last few years with no issues. They even have gluten free chicken strips now. One of the few fast food places I actually trust.

Inform the order taker it is a gluten “allergy “. They are aware to change gloves and prepare meat separate then GF bun is sealed in package and warmed up. Fries are only thing in fryer and I’ve never gotten sick. I’m a sensitive celiac

Great fast food option for celiac. I got a roast beef sandwich with a gluten free bun (.50 extra, but worth it to be packaged and sealed separate), french fries friend in a dedicated frier, and iced tea! For under 5 bucks, pretty good! Update: They also have breakfast! You can get their breakfast sandwiches without bread or with a gluten free bun. And you can get their hash browns since they are fried separately! So good to have a place I can safely eat a fast breakfast!

I had a King Roast beef sandwich. They gave me a pre packaged bun and the meat was in a separate container so I had to build the sand which myself, which seems to be common practice e in fast food, and I don’t mind it at all! Great food and service!

Very knowledgeable! They had a gluten free bun in plastic that they heated up for me. Had a dedicated fryer for fries. They were very nice and explained to me all my options and even had chicken tenders if you wanted to bring your kids (or for you). I had roast beef on a gf bun with horsey sauce and fries. So excited!

I enjoy the chicken strips. The GF bun is sealed in its own wrapper so no one cross contaminates it. All the sauces are GF

Wonderful stop on our way through town. Quick and I felt safe. Got the chicken tender sandwich and fries, all separate and gluten free! I will definitely go by again when in the area.

No GF menu. When asked for choices she said chicken strips and French fries. So that’s what I ordered. It was meal priced at $9.09 med drink, 2 small chicken strips and a small fry. It was surprisingly good.
