No gf menu but most things can be made gluten free. Knowledgeable servers and separate fryers! They also mark your order as an allergy to let the cooks know to clean the surfaces!

I’ve eaten here before and been somewhat okay, but tonight I got glutened pretty bad. I had the chips and onion dip (separate fryer) and the mushroom Swiss burger with the gf bun and sweet potato fries (separate fryer). Got home and got really sick. Super bummed because I love this place but now I will not be going for a while.

Very busy at 9pm. So, that was surprising. Service was nice yet a bit slow. They were definitely knowledgeable about celiac and informed me what was safe. They have a dedicated gf fryer and the tots we’re scrumptious. Burger with lettuce wrap was tasty as well

I had the ahi tuna burger on a gluten free bun, with fries made in a dedicated fryer! Servers were very knowledgeable and it’s been 4 hours and no reaction so I have to assume the kitchen takes precautions to prevent cross contamination also. I’ll be back!

This place was amazing. Awesome food. Awesome service and extremely knowledgeable and took special care with allergies. Lots of yummy options too. They even announced the fact I have celiac and my friends mushroom allergy when they brought the food to the table. If I could give a 10 star rating I dont feel like that would even be enough.

The staff is great about all gf options. They have 3 can\bottle gluten free beers and 4 ciders options. The corn beef for the is beer braised despite have a gf label next to it but that only applies to the veggie options which my server let me know right on the spot.

I had an AMAZING dinner here. I tried the sweet potato fries (a little spicy for me but delish) as they have a DEDICATED FRYER, and a breakfast burger, complete with egg, bacon, and peanut butter. Surprisingly one of the best burger combos I’ve ever had! The staff was very knowledgeable about my celiac and dairy allergy. I would highly recommend this place.

Food was just ok. The gluten free bun was really soggy and basically disintegrated into the burger. They have GF fries which were good but cooked a little overdone. Our server was not friendly. Drinks were not cheap. It was an alright experience but I won’t be returning.

The menu is clearly marked with gluten free options (about half of the menu can be ordered GF). I had the turkey burger on a GF bun with regular fries in a dedicated GF fryer (both very yummy). I also had the Glutenberg Pale Ale beer (also very good). Overall great meal and ambiance. Others have stated the prices are high, but I think they’re fine since the food and service was quality. My bill was $23.50 with tax.

It was a GF hamburger and fries. Add on the tip and parking and we dropped over $40.00 for 2 burgers and water. The seeing is like a bar or lounge, not really our scene. There are better options fit us, for less.

Best burger I’ve ever had. Beef was supreme and flavorful. Cheese was top notch. Dressing was perfect for the burger. Fries are very good and dedicated fryer. Bun was okay but good for GF, so it was still dry and crumbled. But the hamburger outshined the bread!

Celiac Friendly. Many of the burgers can be done gluten free. The poutine is great. They usually have at least one gluten free cider and it is often something interesting and hard to find. Open late nights, one of the best places for a late night meal.

Been to every Red Cow in town, and thus far, every spot has been great for celiacs. Rare GF frier means we can get fries and a burger. Almost all their burgers are optioned as GF, so be sure to order clearly. Also, most of the servers actually KNOW what celiac is. Points.

I am a celiac and got wicked glutened by there burger. Its possible that they didn't catch that I ordered GF, but I have just went through 2 awful days of serious gluten poisoning--this was no cross contamination. The burger was good, the fries were good, but gluten poisoning is not worth even an amazing dining experience. Celiac peeps, make sure that you double check with the server about your order.

They have a dedicated fryer so I had a basket of fries and bonless buffalo wings with blue cheese for dipping. The ranch is supposed to be gf as well. The fries were excellent and the wings were decent. I would have preferred bone in wings but they don't offer them gf. No post meal symptoms.

My daughter has celiac. This is our second time here and it was wonderful again. Burgers, wings, and fries. She reacts quickly and severely when glutened and she’s feeling great!

Separate frier for wings and fries and GF BBQ sauce and buns.

First time at this establishment. We went to the South Minneapolis, 50th and France location. Service was excellent. I didn't notice that the menu had GF markings for individual dishes but was told by our server that certain dishes could be made gluten free. Allie was very helpful in this regard as my guest also had other dietary restrictions due to allergies. The burger was good ( could have been seasoned a bit more) and I was thrilled to finally have french fries. It's been years. I haven't experienced any discomfort from even the mildest of cross contamination.
