I ordered the gluten free bacon cheeseburger on DoorDash. I was sent a regular burger which I didn’t realize until I took a bite. The in person experience may be better but it definitely isn’t safe to DoorDash.

While they have a gluten free menu, I am also corn free. They didn’t seem to l ow how to handle that and my meal had corn in it somewhere because I had a reaction. Our waitress was great but it took 30 minutes for appetizers and then the rest of the meal came out cold and incorrect

Great GF options. Have to ask for GF menu, staff is very knowledgable. We all had the bucket of shrimp, quesadilla burger with mashed potatoes and cheesecake for dessert. No reaction at all. I recommend making reservations as it does get very crowded

The food is decent but I’m not a huge fan of the bun. I’m not marking celiac friendly because I had one small bite of the rice and was sure there was pasta. I wasn’t feeling great but I’m not sure why that was. It could have been many things.

Dedicated gluten free menu with many options. Burgers with gluten free buns, tacos, salads, pasta, quesadillas. Server brought out a card to sign and note that I had celiac/note any allergy to give to the chef.

They have an entire gluten free menu and the servers are very knowledgeable about the food. You can’t eat fries at any of their locations, but they have tons of other side.

Very good experience. Although we’ve ordered takeout many times, this was my first time dining there. Food was very good. Only disappointment is they no longer serve Redbridge beer!

I have eaten at three Rusty Bucket locations and always have a good experience. GF are marked on menu, they have GF buns, and servers are knowledgeable. They carry Red Bridge and have GF cheesecake!

The food is good here, but I don’t feel safe eating here even with gluten free modifications on the menu. My server was very aware I couldn’t eat gluten, and my salad came out with croutons. I asked if they were gluten free, and he said no, so I asked for a new salad. No big deal, mistakes happen. But then he served me the same salad, with the croutons picked off (with obvious crouton crumbs). The manager did end up bringing me a new one after I talked to him, but if you have celiac, I wouldn’t risk it here.

Our server might of been new, because she knew absolutely nothing about celiac disease and nothing about what makes a dish gluten free. She had to go to the back a few times to ask questions, which I appreciated.

I had the burger with a gluten free bun, and mashed potatoes which were all marked gluten free.

Well, I’m thinking the cross contamination in this restaurant is too high because 7-8 hours after I ate (haven’t eaten anything else since), I was puking and pooping forever. And puke warning, it was only what I had at Rusty Bucket, and nothing else I had previously that day.

Celiacs, maybe do not take the chance. Praying that I have healed enough internally where this will not affect me tomorrow when I wake up but we will see
