    Best restaurant I've ever been to for a celiac . Manager greets you and assures you they have you covered . Servers are very knowledgeable about feed sensitivities. And best part is gluten free beer ! This mom is in heaven right now :)

    Always very good. They know what they are doing and are very careful if you have celiac disease. The manager always comes and talks to you before ordering if you have celiac disease. I am very comfortable eating here

    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.

    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.

    My family and I decided to try this restaurant while on vacation in DC. The food and service were both fantastic and the restaurant is family friendly. Many items are clearly marked GF and items such as select burgers can be ordered GF if the bun is substituted for a GF bun. I ordered a salad with crispy chicken tenders and a side of onion rings. What a treat!!! Both were delicious and I had no issues following our meal. I highly recommend this place if you are Celiac. The restaurant staff were very knowledgeable. They asked about any other food issues/allergies and confirmed GF when they delivered our food. Excellent!

    My new go-to place in Fairfield for great fried foods and burgers. As others have mentioned, with a dedicated fryer you can get truly gluten-free, Celiac friendly fries and amazing onion rings. Beyond that, the burgers are truly delicious, with a true beefy flavor no matter what style you order. Staff is also knowledgeable and helpful.

    The food was great, but it should be noted that the name has changed, it is now called "Beer bourbon and Burgers" the menu has many option, especially ones you don't see often. I am very sensitive and has no issues. The service was good and portions were large. My entire family enjoyed the meal. They also have Omission gluten free beer, witch my friend drank them got blood tests for. They have a separate Grier and oven. Some menu items are, onion rings, wings, jalepaneo poppers, and gluten free buns.

    Best gluten free burger joint I've been to maybe ever, and definitely the best in DC. Managers are very knowledgable about celiac, cross contamination, etc. Fried foods on the menu are made with rice batter and fried entirely separately from the one menu item that has panko breading. The GF bun was light and fluffy, and the burgers themselves taste homemade- literally like your mom might've made them. Highly recommend!

    The only problem with this place is the service (or lack thereof). We had to double check our food was GF because staff dropped it at the table without mentioning it. Could be a good tip for them to use different shaped plates for GF or something along those lines. Evidently the manager is supposed to delivery GF items Really tasty food! Sadly they don't have any GF beer. What's up with that?
