The staff were friendly but knew nothing of gluten free. I reviewed options online before going but not every restaurant offers the same. I did have contaminated food. Their fries I think are safe- they only cook fries in one fryer bc they make so many. But their sandwiches are just gluten free buns- all other ingredients on bbq options aren’t gf. The staff thought gf is just the bun- nothing else. 3 days later I’m recovered- but FYI.

Both the waiter and the manager repeatedly told me the Boca burger was gluten free and insisted until I googled it and showed them that it's made of soy and wheat gluten!!

When I asked for a version of the adult grilled cheese, just on a bun, it confused them like crazy, and then they brought me 2 pieces of American cheese melted on a completely dry bun.

Not safe, not tasty. Couldn't pay me to come back again.

At least they tried. I got "glutened" twice via their gluten-free menu. I suspect cross contamination via the sweet potato fries.

I had the “gf” fries cooked in a separate frier and a wedgie burger. All items came out with a gluten free marker but I was definitely sick afterwards. :(

The gluten-free bun had a tight texture, and the server said that any menu item could be made gluten-free.

I have typically not gotten sick from this location's gluten-free burgers and fries. However, I did get very sick when I tried their Southwest Salad. I recently acquired a NimaPartners gluten sensor and tested the gluten-free Madlove Burger, fries, and garlic aioli, all of which tested as gluten free, so this location is pretty safe for those with celiac or other gluten intolerances, but it does seem to be based on a number of factors, such as what you order, when you go (if you go during peak hours, there's probably a higher likelihood of contamination), and staff knowledgeability. I''ve had positive experiences here the majority of the time.

They have a tablet where you can check whatever food restrictions you have, which is nice. GF options are sort-of there, but you have to click through everything because it’s really more of a menu where it crosses out what from the menu item you can’t have. So for example, the pizza option was basically sauce and toppings after it crossed out the crust, etc. The menu doesn’t list fries as GF under “sides,” so I was hesitant. All burger/chicken items (which you can get made with lettuce or a GF bun) say there’s a possibility for cross contamination. But the server said they toast the buns in a toaster vs on the grill, so there shouldn’t be cross contamination from that. Not sure what else they put on the grill though. She also said they have a dedicated fryer for fries.
