Awesome experience. Christian took our order and understood exactly what I needed as a person with Celiac. Delicious burger and fries, felt safe, and would definitely come back if we ever travel through the area again. Many thanks!

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.

My sister & I enjoyed a late dinner as we traveled east. Both need gluten free and we're assured would not be a problem. We had hamburgers on tasty GF buns. French fries are cut fresh daily and have a designated frier. They serve shakes versus malts. All very good and no adverse reactions. Clean and wonderful service.

The hamburgers are amazing! Gluten free bun that is tasty, holds together fairly well, and you can mix your toppings to make your personal favorite burger. They have a dedicated fryer for fries so no worry about cross contamination. Cute burger joint!

I've eaten here multiple times (signature burger and regular fries), and they seem knowledgeable about gluten sensitivity and cross-contamination. I have never gotten sick from this restaurant, and it's an added bonus that the staff are always very friendly and the food is delicious!!

The food was good but very expensive. We were expecting a much smaller price. Part of the problem is the menu is posted without prices.

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!

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.

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
