Wow, this is now my favorite burger place. Great buns and French fries and the burger is delicious. I never would have tried this place but for staying with someone at a nearby hospital. Will definitely be coming back here regularly. I’m looking forward to trying the salmon, too.
The gluten free menu is 2 full pages of options. This was so exciting for me. Since going gluten free almost 12 weeks ago, I’ve not seen so many options. The burger was great with the gluten free bun. My family thought food was wonderful as well. However, the waiter wrote himself in an extra tip so I won’t be going back.
Teds is just ok. I want to love it but the food is so BLAND. I can't do it.
Great Bison burger. Buns are the best!!. Where can I find those?
This is my all time fav place to eat out! Have not tried the gluten free menu yet. I usually get a buffalo burger without the bun! Pile on the veggies! Amazing!
Excellent food, wonderful service from Paula, nice atmosphere. My new fave for sure :-)
I’ve eaten here twice now without an issue. They have a dedicated gluten-free fryer just for French fries (they use canola oil to fry.) No-bun beef or bison burgers are safe because they only use 100% meat — no fillers such as flour or eggs. Staff seems knowledgeable and understanding about cross-contamination.
I brought my Nima sensor tonight and tested my burger. I got the “green and hot” burger and it came back with gluten found. I had told my server prior to ordering that I had a severe gluten allergy (celiac) and he assured me that he would tell the kitchen. After testing my food my server got the manager. The manager was super nice and she made sure that the kitchen took all of the precautions the second time around. I didn’t get sick after, but I am super thankful that I had my Nima sensor or else I would have gotten super sick.
I’ve eaten here 3 times ... unfortunately in addition to gluten I’m also allergic to several other proteins including beef and pork so I get excited for the rare bison steak I eat here off the gf menu. They said they “flagged” all my allergies and I cannot attest to the celiac friendly part (although the first shrimp appetizer came out with the bread underneath and the had to remake it) but I’m almost certain I tasted a piece of bacon stuck to the outside of my bison steak and got pretty sick afterwards. Soooo 2/3 not sick, 1/3 SICK
This was a great find for a family dinner after the RV show in Hartford! They have dedicated fryers here as well as GF rolls. Everything was delicious! I do not have Celiac so I cannot say for sure about cross contamination in the kitchen, but I do appreciate the dedicated fryer. Wait for food a little lengthier than we felt should have been for burgers at 5:00 on a Saturday night when it wasn’t that busy yet. Waitress was not that attentive. But overall experience was good and food was all excellent!
Do not eat here!!! I ordered a steak sweet potatoe and broccoli. I explained to the waiter I could not eat gluten. To make a long story short... I was deathly I'll for 3 days due to there incompetence. I wrote a review on yelp heard nothing back from Ted's. I will never eat there again.
— Not at all
Ordered off gf menu, got sick.
— Separate gluten-free menu
They have really good burgers with gluten free buns. They also have gluten free fries and lots of other choices. My son also has a dairy allergy as well as the gluten allergy. They make his steak without butter and he has never gotten sick after eating at this location.
Excellent food. We ate here twice on our trip. The staff understood allergies and hunted down food labels. They also understood cross contamination and how to make things celiac friendly.
Good news: The GF menu had a lot of options and my server was knowledgeable and helpful. Bad news: My salad was served with croutons—in the bottom of the dish, so I didn’t see them until I’d eaten a good amount of the salad. The server apologized, removed it from the bill, and offered me another dish, but I would be wary of eating here again. At the very least, I wouldn’t order a salad.
(Previous rating was a 5) I had an adverse reaction to my meal yesterday for the first time. I ate here several times without issue, always getting the Skinny Dip and loving every second of it. But don’t think I’ll be back after this last visit. 😞
Awesome. So many choices and environmentally conscious too!
Had dedicated gluten free menu with a lot to chooses from. I got the bison filet with baked potato and asparagus. I am also peanut intolerant so I asked the server about that. She was able to answer right away. Order came fairly quickly and I have to say that for the money, everything was worth every penny. Everything tasted very good and I have to say that the filet was the best I EVER tasted. I’m not used to being able to have a filling meal with 2 sides but I was very impressed! I had absolutely no digestive issues afterwards. I will definitely be back.
Overall very good experience! I ordered their beef burger on a gluten free bun with a side of French fries (dedicated GF fryer). The patty was a bit over cooked but that’s my only complaint. Service was good!
They had a dedicated fryer and gluten free buns! The buns were not bad! It's been about 5 hours since my meal and I'm not sick. They change gloves and everything. They seem very aware of cross contamination.
Food was amazing and if you sit at the bar you can see the staff cooking the meal right in front of you. I got steak, asparagus, & fries (separate frier). They had a ton of other sides to choose from that are gluten free as well. Unfortunately, there is no gf dessert option other than vanilla ice cream.
The experience was good overall. As a newly diagnosed celiac, this is one of three places I have tried to trust. Our server seemed to totally understand the term “celiac” and provided their gluten free menu. The food was delicious, but my body’s reaction was not. I definitely think that somehow I got “glutened”; probably should have asked more questions and been more assertive rather than just trusting the menu and assuming the severity was fully understood. I would recommend that celiacs tread with caution and excessive communication.
I’ve gotten sick from their fries even though they said they were safe. I have also found onion mixed in with my lettuce when I specified I am highly allergic to onion. If you are highly sensitive, I do not recommend eating here.
NOT SAFE! My son started to eat his food and we just confirmed it's safe. Server checked and said the kitchen missed the gluten allergy call out on the ticket. Wife ordered the veggie burger and the cook came out to let her know there was panko crumbs in it and said he was confused between vegan and GF?? Manager was very apologetic.
Server was amazing when it came to all the inquiries we had but unfortunately the kitchen didn’t do so well. Taste was fine not celiac friendly regardless of the Gluten Free menu offerings (that are cooked on same cookware and fryers as non-GF food). Got sick even with warnings, will not be a next time for us.
I felt reasonably safe, and didn’t feel sick afterwards. However, the service was so awful, it was hard to overlook and therefore made me question the safety of my food while eating. I felt like I wasn’t really being listened to when placing my order, and the server did not seem knowledgeable. Open kitchen, for what it’s worth. I had a bison burger, and the meat was over cooked beyond my request, but still good. However, the generic gluten free bun ($$$$) was cold and crumbled. Would have been better off with a lettuce wrap of the meat or no bun. Extremely slow service, even taking into consideration it was a weekend. Server had our table as well as 5+ others, including a party of 11 people right next to us.
Ask for the kitchen manager! He was phenomenal. Separate GF French fry fryer. My husband tried the GF bun and he said it was excellent. I went bunless on my burger and t was great. Got the Avalon, listen.... the aoli is excellent but if they’re not willing to go get it out from the back don’t get it bc it’s constantly being spread on regular bread. They offered and I accepted, delicious. I wanna subtract stars bc our waiter honestly was useless, he didn’t know what celiac was or understand GF so I politely asked for the kitchen manager and he ignored us the rest of the time, never asked how our food was and took forever on the check. BUT, the kitchen manager WAS SO KNOW and well versed in cross contamination and such that we have to go w a 5 here. He has a food science degree. As always, ask solid questions and figure out for yourself what is safe rather than just trusting the gluten free menu. Make sure to get them to change their gloves and etc.
We have just had an excellent meal here. I am gluten intolerant. They have a gluten free menu and the waitress was very helpful indeed. I had the bison avalon burger which was really delicious with a very nice gluten free bun. The setting is quite cosy with booths around the edge and table seating in the middle. I would definitely eat there again.
