Skip this place. Really not a great hamburger. They do have a gf bun but be warned the fries are not safe.

I had a 'regular' burger today (vs the 'big burger') on a GF bun. The burger was disappointingly thin and nothing special. I was very disappointed that I couldn't have the fries after reading previous reviews on this website that indicated otherwise. The fries do not have a dedicated fryer and are contaminated with breaded chicken etc. If I return, I'll try the BIG burger to see if it is more filling.

The food had very little flavor and the chicken and burgers were so thin! I'm glad they were able to accommodate me with the gf buns though.

Burger was pretty good. No complaints there especially when there is an Udi's bun. Staff was fairly knowledgeable and didn't make me feel like a burden. The only draw back is that the french fries are not gluten free so a meal is somewhat limited.

We were told that there is possible cross-contamination with the cheese. So we just got the burger that was supposed to be gluten-free and the bun that was supposed to be gluten-free and they said they were super careful.... but my son still got sick.... very very sick...

This location is amazing. I’ve been to many Smashburgers in multiple states and this one is the best. They take the time to make sure my food is safe. I go in often enough that they know me. They even toast my bun on the grill next to the burgers so it is safe and doesn’t go through the cross contaminated toaster. It’s worth the price for a good, celiac safe burger.

Cashier told me he had celiac and understood my pain and being hesitant to try something new. Dedicated fryer and burger was good. I did get a bun however instead of a lettuce wrap like I asked (Udis)

Has a dedicated fryer! I only had fries, but the cashier took note of my “gluten allergy” (Celiac) and I didn’t get sick. I tend to play it a little safe when eating at restaurants, so I didn’t try a burger with GF bun or any sauces, so cannot vouch for those. But the staff seemed to listen and try their best to be accommodating.

I hate Udis buns, so that kills it for me. I’ll stick to a salad next time. I wish places would realize that there are other GF bread options that taste a lot better.

I think this is my favorite place to grab a cheeseburger! The gluten free buns are good and I was very satisfied with my order. I’m still confused about the fries, but I’ll ask again the next time I visit. The bacon was GF, too! (Celiac)

The staff was amazingly educated on being celiac. She even told the kitchen to not cross contaminate me and my boyfriends food. I was shocked of the education. Not on just not having gluten. But that she was educated on cross contamination. As far as food options you can have any burger and they have gluten free buns. Buyers beware: gluten-free bun is $2.00 extra

I won’t recommended for celiac, depends on the cookers, won’t take a risk w/ taking my kids, they’d should be more serious about cross contamination’s if they’d are registered in find me gluten.

The staff was awesome. She seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. They have all dedicated gluten-free fryers except one that they use for breaded products. They also had a great gluten-free bun and MAN was the truffle mushroom swiss burger amazing. I highly recommend and will be back! Did not get sick.

Ordered GF, brought it out & the bread look different & we asked if it was gf, he gave us the thumbs up. After we’ve been eating a bit he brings out a burger & said we could take it home or something since we were almost done. It’s the gluten free!!!

Knowledgeable staff. Very helpful. A staff member has celiac and eats here too. You can get a gluten free bun or a burger on a real plate with lettuce. Dedicated fryer! Gluten free fries! Sweet potato or white potato. So great.

Very good food. Gf buns. Rosemary tots are amazing. I’m giving 4 stars only because 3 out of the 4 times I’ve been there they messed up my order. Something was missing (bacon) or I got fries instead of tots. They fixed it once I told them but just frustrating. Not sure if the person who took the other entered it wrong or if the kitchen messed it up. Either way- never been sick and the food is good so I would go back.

The burgers are good and they have Udi’s buns but while they *used* to have a dedicated fryer for the french fries, they no longer do so the fries are definitely not Celiac-safe.

The staff was knowledgeable about the dedicated fryer and bun. Food came out quickly. Have little suggestions like making sure the cheese is melted on the burger. Was nice to be able to eat in an airport.

They have GF buns, so most burgers can be gluten-free. I have celiac disease, but I’m not super sensitive to cross-contamination. So I tried their fries and I did not get sick though it is not a dedicated fryer. The GF bun was two dollars more and they gave me the wrong fries, but I was very happy with my experience.

If they care enough, everything will be celiac friendly. The sweet potato fries are good, dedicated fryer. But I got an avocado burger and there was no avocado. So I walked it up and the girl at the counter asked the cook to add some, and I dont think they changed their gloves because I felt like crap after.

I usually just get the grilled chicken or burger patty with no bun but tried the gluten free roll and it's so soft and not all crumbly.

Everytime I have ordered there the order comes out wrong on normal bread. I then have to send it back, and the food comes back safe and tasty. Overall, it makes me nervous because I'm worried they're just careless.

Giving it 5 stars because even though none of their sides are gluten free, the staff was so friendly and helpful that it definitely made up for it. Their gluten free bun is amazing and when they accidentally put it through the toaster, they redid it right away. Really good burger!

I've never gotten sick here, but you need to be careful. People get different answers about the fries, but once I had it explained in detail. There are separate fryers, but they sit next to each other and splatter into the other. That's quite disappointing, but the fact is that my Mom (who is not a very sensitive Celiac) eats the fries without problem. I would never try it because I am very sensitive. I only eat the burgers on the GF bun (not toasted). 1 burger isn't enough food. 2 burgers is too much burger without a side. Nonetheless, it's good in a pinch. I've eaten there probably a dozen times safely.

Ate here twice with no problem (just a burger though). They share oil in the fryers so fries aren't safe. Although they use Hagen daaz ice cream for the shakes, I'm guessing they use the same machine for every type of shake whether gluten free or not, so I wouldn't try it

This is our family go-to burger place. They only fry French fries or sweet potato fries in the fryer. If you ask not to toast the gluten free bun then you're all set! Our Celiac family members never got sick here.

I eat here all the time and love it! I tell them I have a gluten allergy and they make a note of that on my ticket. Dedicated fryer for the fries, the sweet potato fries are delish! I'm grain free so they put my burger on a red plate lettuce wrapped with the other veggies. It works great for me!

ONLY give your order to a manager. I ate here twice and didn’t have a problem. I had a grilled chicken sandwich on a gluten free bun - not toasted. I would NOT recommend grab n go. I had a very short lay over. I walked into the restaurant and gave my order to a manager and my food was cooked promptly and accurately.
