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. 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. 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.

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!

Gluten free buns available for $2 extra. They have a separate frier for gluten free fries, but be aware that the cheese sauce for cheese fries and nacho fries is not gluten free!!

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.
