You literally have to say celiac AND tell the girl a gluten free bun. I said the whole order was gluten free and celiac and she asked repeatedly if it wanted a gluten free bun. Our first time there we asked for celiac and they wrote it on the ticket but we ended up getting gluten buns. My boyfriend was so sick for over a week and almost to the hospital. Our second trip (cause the burger was so good we wanted to try again cause everyone said great things) we said all the things a million times. And we got a different bun for sure. So far so good. Staff needs more education.

So so great! I LOVE getting to have the flat crispy burgers!! Now that I know I will always get a double! Hands down best burger spot in Tacoma Area for Gluten free!

Food is bomb!

Best place for burgers, fries and hard cider in Pierce County, Tacoma Area. Staff is over the top with making sure we get great GF food. I have been eating there since opening and never got sick. Don't forget the ice cream sandwiches. Try it out and get Spanked.

They have a separate frying station for their fries and have a dedication section for their GF items. The place is also super clean and the server was friendly af.

Yummy!!! Regular fries safe (in dedicated fryer). Gluten free bun was good. Peanut butter burger was strangely amazing & truly delicious. Was too full to try a GF ice cream sandwich or the GF chicken strips (on kids menu). Will definitely return! Only wish more GF was labeled on their menu, but employee was very knowledgeable & took the time to answer all our questions when we ordered at the counter & made note of the allergy for the cooks. Will return!

I do not have Celiac (unsure), But after going off Gluten completely I have felt much better than I used to before.

This place is very well informed about their gluten free options. The woman taking mine and my fiance's order even had a list of all the burgers that could be made completely free of gluten. They even have a designated area for preparing the gluten free orders.

I definitely recommend this place for a good burger if you are eating gluten free!

Very conscientious staff. They asked if our GF request was for an allergy and explained the precautions they take. Fryer is dedicated. They put down paper to prepare GF and change gloves. I was a little concerned that they brought our GF food out at the same time as regular burgers in our group. I would have preferred they were served separately. However, we tested both burger and fries in our NIMA sensor and both were good to go. No I’ll effects afterwards. Food was very tasty! Excited to find a safe place.

Great burgers (smash/spanked style) and dedicated fryers, I love this place...try the peanut butter burger.

-EDIT-

Had 40+ positive experiences here with no problem as a celiac until they tried to poison me with normal wheat flour bun despite ordering GF and saying GF repeatedly. They were in denial when called out with pics of their suppliers GF buns, previous orders and the fact the order was not marked GF in any manner so I will never trust them with my health again. Never again will they get my money and they can no longer be considered celiac friendly IMO.

Staff was very knowledgeable about cross contamination. They were very accommodating for my daughter who has celiac and went to great lengths to make sure her food was cooked separately. The staff even brought out the salad dressing bottle so I could double check the label and make sure it was gf. My daughter had the grilled chicken salad and it was delicious!

The food was great, service was phenomenal, and they have Gluten Free items. They are very cognizant of cross contamination for gluten. Very happy with first visit. Only recommendation, more seating, but it is limited due to size of restaurant.

I can have fries! And they're good! It doesn't advertise inside, but the staff was very knowledgeable of allergens and cross contamination prevention. I don't have severe reactions to gluten, but I didn't notice anything off after eating here. My burger was pretty good, nothing too special, but tasty and affordable, a rare thing to pair with celiac-safe fries. I want to go back to get something lighter, so I can try a fresh fruit shake.
