Worth it for the rosemary fries alone. Delicious. Pricey, but a fun splurge now and again

The gentleman up front had no idea. I had to research ingredients on my phone to find out whether it was gluten free or not. Not worth the headache.. and the burger wasn’t worth the $

Was very hesitant to try this place, having seen nightmare kitchen practices at similar places. Let me first say, the gentleman at the register was courteous, kind, and considerate of the fact that I am Celiac and seemed to understand the consequences. I asked about the buns and prep areas, the fryer and the sauces, etc....all of which he had prompt responses to.

I can happily report that I LOVED the mushroom burger on Udis bun I had, and oh my goodness, the Smash fries are almost as good as the ones I make myself😂. But seriously, great food. Separate fryer for you fry lovers, buns are toasted/warmed in a separate appliance from the burger grill, and the cashier let the cook know about the sensitivity order. I can’t say for sure if the cook regloved, but I know they would not hesitate if asked to do so.

Great Job Smash Burger.

This is a great place for a quick bite to eat. Had the bacon smash burger and sweet potato fries and they were delicious!

Me and my family were visiting from western PA, and this place has been phenomenal! The staff is very friendly, and very knowledgeable about how to deal with allergies. The smash fries are particularly good (I highly recommend trying them with ranch dressing). We'll definitely be coming back here during our next visit!

Cashier was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I started with, “my kiddo has celiacs disease and cannot have gluten” and she instantly informed me of our options, that there were dedicated fryers and the “allergy” precautions. The food was great, my kiddo got a safe kids meal and it was two thumbs up from her!
