    We have been here several times for lunch / brunch on the weekend. Our son has Celiac disease. Limited menu but we have had a good experience each time. GF waffles, frittatas, etc., so good options for family / kids. We are careful to explain what to watch out for on cross contamination, toppings, etc., and be polite, and they return the favor by checking ingredients and accommodating changes (for example chocolate chips are not GF but will open new container of Nutella and use clean spoon instead). Updated review because some servers we have had are knowledgeable and some not.

    Undercooked gf pancakes, no answers for what was gf besides the waffle or pancakes, $$$$ and still got sick even though I explained it was medical. Not a lot of confidence here.

    Friendly service. My husband enjoyed the GF pancakes and yogurt without granola. I had the California omelette, without toast (gluten). Unfortunately the omelette had shell fragments and was undercooked. But they offered soy milk for my coffee, and that was appreciated. I would give them another try.

    They have glutenfree pasta and a bun with a burger. Also very nice glutenfree fries.

    Gluten free bun not exactly fresh on my Mushroom Swiss Burger served with non-gluten free French fries. Not very aware as earlier diner said.

    I ordered a turkey burger with a gluten free bun and sweet potato fries. When the burger came, I confirmed with the server that the bun was gluten free. Four hours later i was feeling sick and realized that something had been contaminated. I called route 66 to ask them if their sweet potato fries are gluten free. Turns out they're not, but the server never mentioned that. Clearly, serving floured fries along side a gluten free meal is contradictory. If you eat here, ask for ingredients in everything you order- this place is not well informed.

    The GF bun for the burger is a nice option to have. The server did warn against getting the fries since their fryer isn't dedicated for GF use.

    I order from this place at least twice a week. Never had and issue in my belly from it. Food is great. Fries are awesome, even the sweet potato fries. GF buns and pasta !
