Excellent experience and food! Server was extremely knowledgeable about the gluten free menu items and preparation concerns. We had a gluten free pizza which is baked in a dedicated gluten free oven. I don’t remember the last time we were able to eat pizza out due to cross-contamination. The food and cider were excellent. Highly recommend!

I was sick after eating here because they ignored my GF request.

I ordered a burger with a gluten free bun. After taking a couple bites I realized that the bun was chewy unlike any GF bun I've ever had. I called our waitress who brought a manager who rudely assured me that the bun was GF after barely looking at it. After I got home I was sick in the way I usually get when eating wheat.

I would never eat at this restaurant if you have any dietary restrictions. Despite high prices they don't seem to care if customers get sick.

My daughter and I are both celiac. We shared a small pizza with pesto, roasted veggies and feta. The taste was very good. The pizza crust was average thin crust for gluten free. The house made pop was delicious, especially the cherry and it was gluten free. We enjoyed our dinner and did not get sick. They were short staffed, so it was a bit of a wait but with covid that was expected

Waitress was amazing and super accommodating to my celiac needs. After taking through all of the possible contamination (example, they clean the grill that they use gluten on which isn’t enough confidence for me) we decided the charbroiler was the safest bet to make a bunkers burger. I texted with my Nima sensor and no gluten was found in burger of tots. They were delicious and a nice atmosphere sitting outside on the patio.

Amazing GF pita! I haven’t had a pita wrap in over 3 years. It was delicious. No GF menu, but items are labeled on the menu. Let your server know of your issues (whether celiac, intolerance, or allergy) and they will note it and ensure that it is prepared properly. They didn’t make me feel bad for ordering GF at all! They have delicious ciders and I did NOT get glutened from the tap! Friendly atmosphere and delicious food. My BF loved his (non GF) pizza.

They handle GF food fine but they got rid of their flourless chocolate cake in favor of a vegan cake. When I commented to the server that I feel no sympathy for vegans rarely having a good chocolate dessert when we have a medical reason for needing GF food, I received a good & healthy vegan smack down. Beware celiacs! They’re turning against us in favor of vegans!

I've never felt so comfortable at a restaurant before! Everything can be made gf and everyone from the host to servers understand celiac. We ended up here twice on our trip to TC. A gf friend recommended Minerva's restaurant, but when we got there, they told us they share equipment and can't guarantee anything. As we left, the chef was there and seemed disappointed, so we explained our situation. He said he used to be the chef at Taproot and they specialize in food allergies and dietary restrictions, so we went back to Taproot. I had a pizza the first night and it was great (though not very good leftover). The second time I got the chicken burger, where they made it a wrap with a gf tortilla. Amazing. Loved their tea, too!
