Had a really good burger on a GF bun. No GF menu, but they have a comprehensive allergen info on their website that even highlights cross contamination risks.

They use a separate fryer basket for fries, but the oil is shared with other fried foods, so we didn’t risk it with the fries.

I eat here when I can because their gluten free buns are incredible. I try buying them in bulk but haven't been able to...yet! Their fries are delicious, too!

I came in off of the expressway and navigated their on purpose to buy food only to be turned away because I really urgently had to use the restroom before I ate and they would not allow me too

Staff are a bunch of teenagers. I explained I have a gluten allergy and asked about the fries. The girl had no idea what a gluten allergy was - had to ask a co worker and they looked at each other and giggled. Rude and unknowledgeable. I had to ask exactly what they fried in the fryer. Didn’t eat there - didn’t want the risk

We were traveling through area and stopped for burger and chocolate milkshakes. I though based on reviews there would be no problem. After a short discussion they said milkshakes were not gluten free. They seemed confused. We went next door to eat where there was no confusion.

The GF buns are so good- almost like wheat bread. They’re soft on the inside with 2 kinds of seeds on the outside. I’ve never had a reaction after eating here.

We have been here at least six times we have had a consistent experience every time and NEVER waited more than 10minutes for our food--which btw is cooked fresh to order-plus fresh cut fries (the large comes on a baking sheet to feed the whole family)AND fresh baked buns (not GF but the rest of the family loves them) The GF option is on a salad (no onion straws--OR a very nicely made lettuce cup) You are paying for quality food it's Comparable to Meatheads/5guys prices (my opinion better tasting)--if you want cheap (ps have you ever wondered WHY their food is SO cheap?) and fast-- McDonalds is down the street. The owners always take VERY special care of me--I have a gluten allergy I make a lot of requests --they gladly oblige with a smile- they change their gloves and the same person follows my food all the way through the line--that was without me asking! The fact that they know what a gluten allergy is and how to best avoid cross contamination is not something that I experience very often in ANY restaurant. I strongly recommend Mooyah's of Joliet and I will be back again very soon! Note: the fryer is listed as a cross contamination risk--it is not listed as dedicated but has separate sections where they fry different items--I do react to cross contamination and have yet to react to their fries--I wouldn't risk it if you are super sensitive but...

Good turkey burger on GF bun! Sweet potato fries were good (shared fryer, not celiac friendly).

A gluten free menu does exist, and most of the burgers can be made gluten free. They do not call themselves a gluten free establishment, and they do warn that cross-contamination can happen, but to let them know ahead of time. I ordered a plain bacon burger with a gluten free bun - it was soft and delicious!
