From the owner

The owner of Story Tavern has Celiac Disease and eats here nearly 5 times a week! :)

On safety—The only fried products we provide are tater tots and fried chicken. The fried chicken is a gluten free batter and the tater totos are 100% gluten free. We have a fryer solely dedicated to our tater tots, and our fried chicken. Zero cross contamination.

My husband three kids and I went to Story Tavern last night and it was a wonderful experience! That gluten-free “tot-chos” and the burger with gluten-free bun were both super delicious. I have celiac and did not have any issues. Highly recommend!

This place has excellent reviews on this app, and people rave about it in the gluten-free Facebook forums I am a part of. So it was no problem to drive the 45 minutes to this restaurant to try the gluten-free fried chicken sandwich. But that’s where all the good vibes ended.

The sandwich came out blackened burnt. There was MAYBE 2 oz of chicken on the bun - it was mostly fat and batter.

Making matters worse our server never checked on us until after the meal. So I had nothing to eat.

When she finally did after everyone was done eating, and I explained what was wrong with the sandwich, she acted like I was the problem.

The restaurant also simply didn’t care that this had happened.

My time, my dinner, all a waste.

My daughter had the GF pasta and while the noodles hold up the fake cheese sauce is gross and caused massive tummy troubles later.

All in all I do not get the massive ratings for this place. Totally underwhelmed and there’s an Asian GF fried chicken place in East LA you should go to instead.

Bartender’s wife is gluten and dairy free - the non judgment alone was worth it! Not to mention that the bartender was willing to create or explore variations of cocktails and walk me through the menu… 10000% recommend

From the owner


As a restaurant that is owned by someone with Celiac, all allergies (not just gluten) are taken very seriously. We have zero cross contamination as we have dedicated areas of the kitchen are specifically designated for gluten free preparation and cooking. Most options are gluten free, but those that are not have gluten free options such as gluten free bread, gluten free pasta, etc.

All staff is very knowledgeable of the gluten allergy and happy to accommodate and answer questions.

DO NOT GO HERE

They supposedly have GF food. And the menus has things marked. But the SERVICE and QUALITY are among the worst I’ve ever experienced in my life.

My husband and I went here to celebrate my birthday. We drive across town to get a good GF meal. The moment we walked in the wait staff started arguing with us about which table we wanted to sit at. Then the waiter was extremely rude bc we didn’t know what we wanted to eat and had a few questions.

We ordered and stood up to go play a round of darts. The bar tender was extremely rude and questioned if we were really patrons of the bar multiple time and quite forcefully before giving us some darts.

Before we for the darts (waiting and being questioned unreasonably) our drinks and appetizers came out. We walked back to the table to pickup our drinks with the darts in our hand and the bar tender FLIPPED OUT and screamed at us for leaving the bar area with darts.

Needless to say we left the restaurant and didn’t eat our food. Save your time and well-being and go elsewhere. This place is s*#%.

AMAZING! The best chicken sandwich I’ve had in my entire life (not an exaggeration). Tachos were super yummy as well. Mac and cheese was good but not worth the price in my opinion. Staff was super knowledgeable and accommodating for celiac. My brother got the burger and was not impressed, would definitely go for the chicken sandwich!

The food was so good! I got the Mac Attack (it was very cheesy) and really enjoyed it. The burger buns were super and (at times) tasted like a really good pretzel. The mac and cheese was great and the tater tots were awesome. Places like this make having Celiac easier. 100/10

If you’re looking for loaded GF Mac and cheese paired with sausages with spicy ground mustard so good it’s almost offensive this is it. Their house cider is *mwah*. This is the perfect place after a really long run or hike.

They have a decent amount of GF options & sometimes they have a seasonal menu with GF options in there too! I’m a very sensitive celiac and never have had issues here :)

Bonus: they allow doggies in the front outdoor patio & sell dog treats. There’s also a big game room next to the restaurant & attached to the bar that serves apps & drinks (or at least they did in the before-times, ha) 😁

Uses GF frying oil for the chicken sandwich & no cross contamination on the fries/tater tots. Also have GF mac and cheese. Food is fine, your average pub food. Wish they had GF beer though - only options were ciders.

Amazing. The bartender has celiac and helped assure us it was safe. A few items do have gluten but only the pretzels and Guinness burger. Had the Mac n Cheese burger and the sangria cocktail.

I want to like this place and we've given it lots of chances. I once found a non-GF pasta noodle in my order of GF Mac and Cheese. They use GF penne pasta and regular spiral noodles for the standard Mac and Cheese, so it was easy to see the issue. Ugh. Also, the consistency of the food quality is lacking. Sometimes it will be delish, other times it's mediocre at best. There are so few Celiac options in Burbank, so I hope Story Tavern gets its act together! Sensitive Celiac customers like myself are highly loyal because we are desperate for dining options! Please be an establishment we can count on, and we will keep coming back!

Another wow for this place. Lots of Gluten Free options. The Story Tavern Stew is the best tasting stew that I ever had, even my none-GF husband raves about it. Their Ruben (yes, I said Ruben) on their GF bread (which taste just like regular bread) is fantastic! But what makes this place rock is the staff. Very friendly and we meet Diane the manager who has Celiac and is very understanding of those in the GF community. We loved the ciders Diane recommend (most of which are on tap). We are are going to highly recommend this place to everyone we know. Bonne Appétit!

After seeing the reviews, we decided to try the Story Tavern and were not disappointed! The staff was very informed about Celiac and the food was to die for!

Lots of gluten free options, in fact they have added a gf Mac and cheese since I was there last. It's nice to have a good safe neighborhood place to go to for food and drinks. The downside would be that it was crazy crowded and loud on a Friday night and the service was a little slow.
