I am so thankful for this place. We traveled out of town, and I searched on here for gluten free places. There was a decent amount of reviews for Meatheads, but nothing super recent. When I got there, I told him I had celiac. He told me that they have a dedicated fryer just for gluten free fries. The gluten free bun was as expected, didn’t have too much crumbling, and wasn’t so dry I needed a drink after each bite. The fries were incredible, and you get so many. It felt great to order food and feel a little normal. I loved being able to enjoy fries with my burger. Would highly recommend!

Good place! GF Buns and dedicated gf fryer. Friendly staff. Staff even came over to our table to see how I liked my GF bun (which was, admittedly, falling apart) and to seek feedback on what they could do to improve it.

Meatheads was awesome. Separate fryer and stove for burgers + fries. Fries were very tasty and they gave you a large portion. Burger was also good but the GF bun did fall apart. Overall, very pleased with this place and their precautions they take!

I had lunch here today after visiting a local quilt shop! I had a junior burger and fries on a gluten free bun. There was a $2 up charge for the gluten free bun, but is was well worth it! The French fries were awesome and the bun held together without crumbling like some do! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My friends not needing gluten free also enjoyed their lunches. Most had burgers, but one had chicken tenders which she really enjoyed!

Love this place. GF bun is always a plus. Fries are in a dedicated fryer. Staff is friendly and I've never gotten sick. They note on the ticket to have the grill wash hands/change gloves.

Gluten free buns, employees even let us check the ingredients on the Cajun seasoning. Both my daughter and husband are Celiac and neither got sick. The food was overall pretty good. We were actually at the one in Normal, but couldn't find that location in the app.

The people who worked there are super knowledgeable about what food contains gluten and what does not! They automatically adjusted the rest of my order and not just the burger to make sure it was safe to eat! They offer all of their sandwiches and burgers in lettuce wraps and they are great!

Fries and chicken nuggets are fried in seperate friers so there is no cross contamination. No GF buns but their grill is only for the burgers. Only oil, no butter on them. They will do a lettuce wrap.

I always have a great experience here! The staff are pretty knowledgable and if not, they don't hesitate to ask management or look in their binder. They NEVER make me feel bad for being a little different. 😉 Only thing that would make this place better is to have gf buns. Always friendly staff and good food.

Fresh cut fries and burgers without the bun are all gf safe. I think the cheese sauce for fries may have gluten because I break out in a rash (my normal 1st symptom) after eating it, which is sad because it is so delicious.

The manager was very accommodating when I asked to see allergen info, and was actual excited to help me when he heard I was GF. He made sure to point out the separate fryers for the fries and was ready to answer any questions I had. The cashier was also knowledgeable and flagged my order as a gluten allergy. The manager brought out our food personally and told us that the cooks made sure to wash their hands and change gloves before preparing my food.

The did wrap my burger in lettuce, but it was so juicy and sloppy (a good thing!) that I ended up eating it with a fork and knife.

If they had GF buns they would be perfect, but all in all a great experience.

The #1 problem seems to be that they insist on toasting all the damned buns on their grill. Thus, even the meat can be cross-contaminated even if you don't order a bun. The Udi's buns are fine of course, except those also get toasted on the same grill as everything else. The other issue is it depends which manager is on duty how careful or not they are. Most of the cook staff are workers with little training.

We have eaten here quite a few times, but occasionally been noticably contaminated. The order-taking staff are usually very good about GF and will mark the order as "gluten allergy" but that doesn't matter a lot with the above problems.

They are very knowledgeable and understood my concerns. I had a burger and fries with a gluten free bun. No issues. I get sick very easily with CC. I was nervous as crap but it was delicious and it had been forever since I had French fries that I didn’t make myself.

Been glutened multiple times here (i know). Multiple times found hair in food. And what’s worse, they toast the buns on the meat grill and don’t really clean in between even when you ask. They only know gluten allergy and don’t understand celiac
