    Not a ton of GF options, but the food was decent and I didn't get sick. I had the bacon cheeseburger (no bun) and a salad instead of fries (no dedicated fryer).

    There are ways to make things gluten free, but they don't have gluten free substitutes for anything. My server was knowledgeable about gluten and allergies though. They don't have a separate grill for gluten free items, so probably not a good idea for celiac.
