    I had a wonderful experience at Smashburger in NJ, so was excited to find this one closest to home. It was dirty, no dedicated fryer for fries, making the fries not gluten free, and our order got messed up.

    The staff was eager to help us understand what they had available that was gluten free (buns, fries, meat). My son also has other allergies and they were not sure of the seasoning ingredients they use on the burger. They were very accommodating and made his burger without seasoning to be on the safe side.

    They really need a Gluten Free menu. The cashier didn't know what I could eat and had to keep running back to ask the manager. The poster of the wonderful salad on the wall was NOT offered as an option. It's just to look at but NOT on the menu. They would have had to remove 5 items off the Cobb Salad to make it Gluten Free but not reduce the price. I really wanted a salad but ended up with a GF hamburger. The Brussel Sprouts were good. Please Train your staff on food alergies. My daughter got her meal first and ate it, my husband goy his second and mine came out about five minutes later. We didn't get to eat together as a family. It really sucked. For the price they should do a better job.

    I returned to the restaurant to iffy results, was told previously that there is a dedicated fryer but another employee made me feel like it wasn't truely dedicated. They serve gf rolls but lacks any sort of understanding on how to make gf food. I requested them to place my food into a separate bag away from the rest of the order that was for a person who ordered gluten. The cookstaff combined our food together and for whatever reason seemed to over stuff the single bag. We bought this up through a complaint line and simply received a answer that consisted of, I have words to explain why it happened and here's coupons to come back. I would think twice before going here..... My previous review is below Was met by somewhat knowledgeable staff member who was willing to answer my questions. Willing to take majority of the steps to be gluten free. Has a dedicated fryer but was not available that night. I didn't order that evening but will return and update review when able to eat.

    I got a burger that came with a gluten free bun and told them I’m allergic to wheat and they put onion straws on my burger instead of onions. They were really nice about it. No GF menu. They do have a separate fryer. I’m afraid to eat my burger....

    I have always had a good experience here. The Udi’s buns are better than what is available in the grocery store. I like having the option of enjoying a burger and this fits the bill. Agree on the fries being something to avoid as are in shared frier. I have many good experiences with the staff at this location and Smashburger has frequent coupons if you use the app.

    I didn't go to this location, I went to the one in Del Lago. but they seemed to know my needs very well and were aware of what I was able to have on the menu. I had an avocado burger on a gluten free roll and smashfries. They also changed their gloves. There is always risk of cross contamination but as long as you go when they aren't busy I think you will do just fine.

    I felt a little nervous eating here due to the lack of the staff's knowledge of allergen information, but I felt alright afterwards. Udi's buns are available. The food is very average, I'd recommend Whalburgers across the street.

    Udi’s GF buns ARE offered but cross-contaminated as they are toasted in the same toaster as regular buns. Burgers are cooked on the same grill as grilled cheese sandwiches so even the patties are cross-contaminated. Not Celiac safe.

    This place is great! They ask specifically if you are GF for allergy or preference every single time we visit. Torey always takes our order, and she's always so cautious. My son has never had a reaction here. They have GF buns that they won't put through the warmer if you have CD. Fries are safe too.

    Staff was completely unprepared when I asked for a gluten free menu. She said they didn’t have one but “I’m pretty sure everything is GF except maybe the bread,” so I asked the manager for help. No real menu, but they do have a spreadsheet of their allergens. It didn’t have everything on their menu, though, such as the chili. They don’t have a separate fryer, so fries aren’t safe. No separate kitchen prep area for any of the GF stuff, they were really busy, & I should’ve known better than to risk it. I was sick by the time I finished my burger. I won’t be back.

    Staff was knowledgeable. You are able to specify if gluten is an allergy or preference to avoid. Website has allergen menu. Gluten free buns for sandwiches. Was a little disappointed in the Victor location because the staff told me they do not have dedicated fryers even though the reviews and website led me to believer they would.

    I went there three days ago with my five-year-old daughter who has celiac. They brought out to cheeseburgers in a row saying they were gluten-free and when I asked him to doublecheck they said whoops nope that wasn't gluten-free OK this one is… OK note this one definitely is… Finally they brought one out that they absolutely assured he was gluten-free,by this point my daughter was absolutely starving so I let her eat it. What a mistake. We're now 72 hours later and she is still a complete mess. Crying irritable headaches sleeplessness extremely itchy from head to toe. She's having a gluten reaction like she hasn't had in years I would never eat there again with her never
