They do a great job of taking special care and they actually want to be accommodating. Only downside is my son also can’t eat dairy and they use dairy in all their breaded foods which share the same fryer for fries. So he had a burger with a side salad. That was too bad. But all in all, a lot of choices. Especially if dairy is not an issue for you.
By far one of the best restaurants I've eaten at since being diagnosed celiac 4 years ago. They had soooo many options. They use rice flours for there breading and have separate fryers. You can have almost anything but there non gf hamburger buns....I had a ground pork burger w tots....food was amazing!!!!
This place was so awesome. They only use rice flower for their breading so everything fried is naturally gluten free. I had the Parmesan garlic wings and truffle oil French fries and they were amazing. The kids menu was great because it already had marked gluten free items - so rare. My daughter had the gluten free fish sticks and tater tots and loved it! Two thumbs up from the whole family (even the not gluten free ones)! Highly recommend!
I wish I could give zero stars. I got violently sick because my gf burger was served with regular mac and cheese- it didn't look right and one bite told me the mac was too good to be GF. I told my waitress and was assured, and a few hours later enjoyed a hospital visit.
I am confused by all the negative reviews, I have been here many times and when you say you have an allergy the manager personally ensures your food is safe. The food is great and they have many options. While all the fried foods are cross contaminated, they clearly communicate this in person and label it on the menu.
The menu states gf, but reality is that there is a lot of cross contamination. The staff is rude when you ask for gf. How do you have the right to ask of It's an allergy or preference. Just make it and keep it gf. On top of that make sure you don't contaminate. horrible. Avoid at all cost.
this place makes a good effort to cater to allergies. the manager came to our table and let me know that things are fried all together. however, I didn't think that meant things on the gluten free menu. it's billed as celiac friendly and their chicken tenders, which are on the gluten free menu, are not 100% gluten free. this is not celiac friendly.
Absolutely not CELIAC friendly. All fried food is fried in same oil and Fryer as gluten items . We pretty much figured out that we could have a burger no bun on top of lettuce. mashed potatoes available on special request do not order alone. Contains gluten
The menu is creative but there isn't many options for GF sides. Not to mention I was pretty hesitant to eat here after the hostess gave me the GF menu and instantly started talking about cross contamination. I decided to order simple and did end up getting contaminated.
This place had great customer service. Manager came over right away once he saw i had a gluten free menu. before my waiter even got to the table, he was informed that i was need my food prepared separately. Big gluten free menu, but fried items are currently fried in a shared fryer. Gluten free beer and dessert too, as well as buns for the burgers.
Lots of gluten free options, and they don’t fry anything with gluten in it - that really reduces the risk of cross contamination, if you ask me! Many items are always gluten free so you don’t have to worry about whether it was properly prepared.
This place is fantastic with great burgers and fries, all safe for celiac‘s to eat. And Gluten Free tater tots too! The gluten-free bun is excellent and the service is outstanding. Just about everything on their menu can be prepared gluten-free. I highly recommend this establishment. Oh, and they serve great bourbon too.
Ate at b 2 nights in a row this weekend while in DC for a conference. Everyone in my party of 10 loved their meals. I am the only Celiac in the group and I too absolutely loved the burgers and nachos. I felt safe did not get sick. We cannot wait to return!!
I had a reaction. I went in with confidence last spring after reading the reviews and ate both the gluten free bun and the fries. So don’t know which the gluten came from. It may have been a slip up in the kitchen and not their norm, it doesn’t take much with celiac.
Many items are gf. Tell them you have an allergy and they change their gloves and prepare your food in a dedicated area. A lot of food for the price- great value. Wonderful service. Highly recommend!
Awesome! Over half their menu is gluten free. I got the bacon deluxe cheeseburger on a gluten free bun (which was actually good, not like some gf buns lol), the Parmesan and sweet potato fries, and a hard cider to drink that was canned. I also got a flourless chocolate cake with vanilla mousse for dessert. Would definitely recommend!
They specialize in bourbon, beer and burgers. I went for the burger. I had the cheese bacon deluxe on gf bread. I was worried because the bun was toasted but there was no issue and it was a great bun. I also had the tater tots (dedicated fryer) and they were good as well.
This is a great place with knowledgeable staff and excellent food. They know what they are doing. Had the blue chips for an app and the Squealer and fries for my meal. Their GF bum is pretty decent. So nice to be able to eat out somewhere and not get sick!
Tasty food and gluten free fryer. Fries, burgers, tots, fish and chips etc. nice to have many options. They know celiacs and regarded us well. Good food, not the healthiest but it is a burger bar. Fresh burgers.
We ate here for lunch today in DC. Based on the reviews I expected this place to be amazing. It almost lived up to my expectations. I had a Porker burger (GF) and my wife had the Tavern (not GF). I also ordered the Jalapeño Poppers, Onion Rings, and my wife got the fries. The Poppers were wonderful, fries were great, and burgers were amazing. The O-rings were just ok. My stomach usually hurts from eating beef but not from lunch today. We’ll be back and can’t wait to try some other items here. I’d recommend it to anyone who asked.
Came here twice with our celiac kids. Food is fine. Kids liked that they could get chx fingers. Only 4 stars as both times we visited they messed up our orders. Nothing major but not 5 star worthy.
I had a great experience! I asked to speak to the manager upon arriving and she was very accomodating and answered all of my questions as I also have a peanut and treenut allergy. She even took pictures of the ingredients of the breading they use and the gf buns (Udi's)! Server was also made aware of my allergies and was very accomodating. Dedicated fryer for fries, gf onion rings, and gf chicken fingers. All delicious! Majority of menu items are gluten free. They use rice flour for all of their fried items. Burger was amazing and cooked in a separate place to ensure that cross contamination did not occur. Udi's bun was toasted in dedicated toaster and did not fall apart! I can tell they were very careful while making my appetizer of chicken fingers and my meal of a cheeseburger and fries. If you are in DC, I definitely recommend you try this place. Will be returning my next visit to DC.
Several GF options. I had jalapeño poppers appetizer which was great, very spicy!! Had cheeseburger with GF bun, bun was lovely looking and tasted fine but as with many GF buns just doesn’t hold up to lettuce, pickles etc and fell apart quickly. Next time I’ll just do lettuce wrap burger. Their fries are GF, yumm!!
Great Food! Cozy atmosphere! Staff was very knowledgable and very friendly! The food is great normal American food, not the organic health food type stuff. Great for those with celiac that want a great burger and fries, breaded chicken nuggets or fish and chips! Awesome place to eat!
It was absolutely fantabulous! The staff is super knowledgeable and they have SO MANY options! They don’t cross-contaminate and have dedicated space in the kitchen just for gf foods. Their portions are large and filling (even there kids meals that I had was a lot). HIGHLY recommend to all celiacs
Celiac safe! My daughter has celiac and I don’t but I happened to also order a gluten free meal and when I asked if my daughter could taste mine the waitress said that probably not as she hadn’t noted that mine should be celiac safe and she couldn’t guarantee that whoever prepared my meal would have changed gloves for my meal. Love it!!!! Bonus-the food was delicious!!!!!
The staff was very knowledgeable & assured me my food would be safe, and that there was a separate fryer for the fries. Their buns are just Udis buns, but the burger I got was delicious and I highly recommended if you have celiac!
Staff was knowledgeable & friendly, said they often did gluten free foods. I had a turkey club burger & sweet potato fries. I believe the burger was on an Udi’s bun. I came back & had fish & chips, fish tested safe with Nima! Amazing food & I did not get sick either time :)
Would have loved to have said food great but phoned to make reservation and did but turned up on day to be told no reservations as 4th July and would be very busy. I dont give money to people who dont deserve it so didnt bother, went somewhere else.
DO NOT EAT HERE if you are a celiac. My wife ordered a gf salad and it came with bread on it. When we informed the waitress that bread is gluten and that my wife could not have it, the waitress offered to remove the bread. When I mention that my wife was very sensitive and had been in the hospital twice for small bowl obstructions (requiring emergency surgery) the waitress was unapologetic. They finally brought a “new” Salad and 2 hours later the symptoms began and kept my wife in pain for 5 days. Who are the people giving this place 5 stars???
The burgers were fantastic! Even a flourless brownie available! YUM! No issues with cross contamination and the wait staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The kids are begging to go back!
Gluten free is clearly marked on the menu with lots to choose from, and server confirmed it was an allergy and that they would cook everything separately. Separate fryer too, the tots were yummy! Nice outdoor patio to sit in. Overall a great meal!
While the food did not make me sick, I sat at the bar and the bartender made my experience really negative and embarrassing, making me doubt the safety of the food I’d ordered due to her ignorance of the disease and refusal to listen to my concerns.
