    Newts downtown has excellent and celiac safe burgers. Unfortunately this is the only location that does not have a dedicated fryer. Waitstaff is always helpful and knowledgeable!

    I like Newt's because it's cozy and rarely crowded. It has gluten free buns, but the burgers within them are pretty bland.

    I agree that the gluten-free burger was really good!. But they now say the French fries are not gluten-free, and they don't have a gluten free fryer at all anymore. Sadness.

    The gf bun is decent and they have a separate fryer for french fries! :) I've been OK after eating there but I have been warned by one wait staff that the separate fryer is located right next to the other fryer. Not sure if that means gluten may sprinkle in there throughout the day or what, but I have not been sick afterwards. Nummm!

    Excellent gluten-free burgers. I only gave them 4 stars because they don't have actual gluten-free beer - only Omission, which is "gluten-removed". Something like Lakefront Brewery's New Grist would be safer for people with celiac disease.

    I had the Marvin burger and it was so yummy. Delicious gluten free bun. Fries cooked in a separate fryer. Staff was very knowledgeable about what was gluten free. Left feeling fat and sassy. Will definitely be back.

    The burgers, as always, were great - but the gf buns were a little dry. Loved the fries and the atmosphere!

    I have only tried bread once since being diagnosed three months ago, and it was awful. If I didn't know, I never would have guessed these buns were GF. The waitress said the fries were also cooked in a separate fryer, and I had no reaction. I will definitely come back if I'm in the area again!

    All burgers can be done with gluten free bun. Dedicated fryer with no seasoning on fries. Wait staff is always knowledgeable. Eat there approximately once per month and have never had problems! Newts south is our go to restaurant!

    I didn't eat there because I was on restriction for testing but my husband said the burger he had was amazing...the best he has ever had. I guess there is a reason they have been voted best burger since 2004!!!!!!

    Ordered a burger, with a gf bun, & side salad. Told them I'm allergic to gluten. It was busy & the food came fast. As I ate my salad, I was wondering why my gf bun looked like the regular bun my son had. The waiter took it back to correct the error. When I got it back, it was on the same basket the first one was served on. It was also the same burger. Gluten bread crumbs all over. I asked if we could just pay for my salad and not get a new burger. burger. He said he would have one made correctly and not charge me anything. After not getting it right the second time, no thank you. This night, no one seemed to understand what a food allergy is. I'm giving them 3 stars because I have eaten here before and the food and staff were great, but that was a year ago.
