Lettuce-wrapped buns or Udi’s buns. Staff are knowledgable about celiac. The Cajun fries have gluten but the regular fries are gluten-free, and they always separate my husband’s Cajun fries so that they don’t touch mine. Fries are made in a dedicated fryer so no cross-contamination.

I got a burger on a gluten free bun. The bun is crumbly but tastes great, and the plain fries are gluten free from a dedicated fryer.

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 low-wage workers with little training.

We have eaten here quite a few times, but occasionally been noticably contaminated. The #1 problem seems to be that they insist on toasting all the damned buns on their grill.

The other issue is it depends which manager is on duty how careful or not they are. Most of the cook staff are low-wage workers with little training. 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.

I let the cashier know that it was my first time, and we needed to do gluten free, and she helped us choose burgers. I asked for the GF bun, then saw the caramel apple “pie” shake. I asked it that would be okay for gluten free, and she didn’t know. I asked if they could just leave out any crust stuff and she said sure. The shake came with crust sprinkled on top, and my boyfriend’s burger came with the regular bun.

I walked in and just asked about the gluten free options they were clueless. Guy said he would “check if the fries are gluten free. He said they would “try to be careful” Bc the Cajun seasoning can cross contaminate. I left and didn’t order anythjng. They were not knowledgeable at all .

I have been here quite a few times and the love that they ensure the french fries are gluten-free, fried in a separate fryer, and also provide a gluten-free bun (which is a bit oversized) with their burgers. They always ask if it is an allergy or a preference (I just say allergy because trying to explain is more info than they want haha) and make sure to note that on the ticket. Fortunately, I’ve never had any issues. I’m not ultra sensitive though.

We took our two boys out for burgers on a Friday night and had a good experience. No gluten free buns, but had lettuce buns (all those carbs aren't good for you anyway!). Fries were great and from a dedicated fryer. I have Celiac, so I tested my food with my Nima. It came out at below 5ppm. We are adding this place to our list of favorite quick eat spots.

Meatheads has very few things that are not gluten free. Just the bread, the crispy chicken, the chili, the Oreos, and the Cajun seasoning! And the GM is super knowledgeable about his product or he will find out! Down load the meatheads app for nutrition and allergens!

They substitute lettuce for the bun. The cashier did ask if it was allergy or preference. It is just a preference for me, so I cannot say if it is celiac friendly. They do have a frier dedicated just for fries!

We go to this location regularly for my son who has celiac and they always make everything separate. We either bring along a bun for dining in or make at home. He has not been glutened. I think different locations are different but this one has been wonderful!! We would love to add gluten free buns!

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 have been going here for the last two years on a regular basis and I LOVE IT!! I have Celiacs and I've never had a problem. However, I never order a bun with my burger. I prefer to wrap it in lettuce instead. The fries are AWESOME!!
