Great atmosphere and service- super fun environment for a group. They warned about shared fryer contamination (a risk we usually take as my mom and sister with celiac's disease have never had an issue with it before). I (not GF) ordered a burger with a regular bun and my mom ordered a burger with a gluten free bun. Our sides came out switched and we believe there was some contamination between the handling of the sides/food as it came out (causing her to get sick). Probably a good place if you're GF for dietary purposes or have a sensitivity but use caution if you have Celiac's disease.

Great place for creative comfort food. Somehow modern and retro at the same time. They do indicate GF options on their menu and, as some reviewers have noted, these items require a little discussion while ordering because of shared fryers for example. However, each time I go I simply tell the servers that I have a gluten allergy and request a truly GF version (e.g., please fry the hash browns in a separate/clean pan). They are willing and able to educate me and accommodate me each time I’ve dined there. No drama. No mix ups. I’ve never gotten sick. Yesterday, my server Alisa was very competent and accommodating. Trey from the kitchen even came out to hand deliver my food to let me know they took precautions and took my situation seriously. Although chefs or managers don’t always hand deliver my food, I always feel safe and I’ve never gotten sick. Yay and yum!

The food is decent and a good spot to go with a group. They do offer GF buns for burgers and sandwiches. The fries are delicious, but as noted, are not fried separately. Although I have not been wowed by the food, it offers solid choices for GF and non GF diners.

The food was very good. As previously stated though the fries and tots are fried with other foods. I was told that though and was offered a fruit salad as my side item. They have gluten free rolls as well. Staff was super friendly!

The food here is good, but a lot of things listed as gluten free on their menu aren't really. For example, they don't have a separate fryer, and one of their sandwiches contains a breaded chicken breast, so many fried things they list as gluten free are not.
