    All fries and homemade chips were listed GF on the menu but when you ask they don't have a dedicated fryer so they were not actually GF. Its frustrating that they have them listed on the menu as gluten free if they actually aren't after sharing a fryer with non GF items. No GF bun for hamburgers either had to eat the burger on GF sandwich bread.

    Fryers are not dedicated, even though menu indicates GF. They do seem to have plenty of options for making a meal GF. When I received my meal (after asking for no roll), it came with roll sitting right on top of my chicken. We told the waitress and she was so upset that her cooks didn't listen. She quickly remedied it and apologized profusely.

    It was pleasantly surprising to find so many GF options on the menu. Food was great. Service was great. Highly recommend.

    they have a lot of gluten free items as indicated on main menu however their fries aren't gf as they're cooked in the same fryer as onion rings etc. also, they don't have gf buns, only bread, so I was disappointed by my burger but at least I didn't get sick!

    Really surprised that Mel's Diner was a gluten-free friendly as it is...the majority of the menu can be made gluten free. Great place and worth a visit.
