Today was my first visit to Smashburger. Most locations have Udi's gluten free buns and a dedicated frier for fries only. The staff was knowledgeable and asked if I had an allergy. The burger was great as were the smashfries and a shake, they do not use malt.

Went there a couple days ago. Got a burger with a gluten free bun. When they served it to me, I was concerned that it was a gluten bun. I showed it to them, and they swore up and down that it was gluten free. My friend also ordered a burger with a gluten bun. We had the same bun. Please beware!

Some of the staff members didn’t seem very knowledgeable about the menu, I was able to get a gf bun and the fries had a dedicated fryer. All in all it’s ok in a pinch but there is better in the area

Very tasty burgers with gluten free buns - as noted, it is a $2 up charge which I don’t love, but grateful to have a gf option. The fries and smash tots with rosemary and garlic are also gf and delish! They were very helpful with our order.
