    Had a dedicated GF menu which was nice. Can't go wrong with a "make your own burger" type menu. Got 1 lb bison burger on their GF bun with avocado and lettuce. Side of shoe string fries. Was very delicious and didn't have any effects from either dish. Don't think this place is celiac friendly but it does cater very well to a GF clientele. Will return.

    I want to be clear that the fryer here is NOT safe. It is a shared fryer. This was confirmed by at least three employees (one of which was a manager). Please be safe! The staff gave conflicting answers and made be very uncomfortable. I am also a former health inspector and found the place to be quite filthy. This didn't leave me feeling very safe at all! There were crumbs in my water from either poor dishwashing practices or other contamination. I actually chose to forego eating there while the rest of my non-celiac party ate.

    I absolutely love this restaurant! The burgers are fantastic and the buns taste like real buns and not like the typical GF bun. Loved the sweet potato fries too! Our waitress was great and knowledgeable about GF. Now if only they would open one in OC!

    My husband and I absolutely love this place. We have been in LA for about 10 days and have eaten here 3 times. They have delicious gluten free buns (that are clearly lactose free, as we are both very sensitive) and also offer Daiya "cheddar". Their burgers are so delicious that they mute the terrible fake cheese taste; it's actually worth adding to the burger. Try one with pineapple, jalapeño, bacon and bbq! Their regular fries are safe, but the sweet potato fries are where it's at! The only gf beer they had available is Omission (not safe for Celiacs); however, they offer raspberry and pear ciders that are delicious and not too sweet. All in all, dining here has repeatedly been a wonderful experience that left neither my husband or myself feeling ill after indulging in a meal we rarely are able to enjoy. Last but not least, the staff has been very friendly and accommodated. 5 starts for this place!

    Ate lunch here. Separate GF menu but a lot of options on regular menu as well. I got a bison burger with sweet potatoes fries and they have GF beer but only on brand. The food was great, but I would not consider this a one $ waiting but more like a $$.

    Safe fries!!! Dedicated frier for regular & sweet potato fries. Ask for a GF menu. I think the bun is just an Udi's bun. I much prefer to get the burger bowl with a big pile of lovely greens. The fries are really good, both kinds. No one got sick. Organic bison as a burger option. Kind of pricey for a burger joint but good quality and safe so worth it overall.

    Very easy to eat GF here and still have some options! Everything is customizable, which is great for both food allergies and picky eaters. Their fries are my favorite (and made in a dedicated fryer). The servers tend to be informed about GF needs. There is a separate GF menu, but I usually just use the regular build your own burger sheet and make a note at the top that I have a gluten allergy. I haven't had any issues, but you do need to know what to avoid (e.g. fried onion strings) to do it this way.

    Dedicated fryer, many gluten free options, but you have to babysit your order and watch everything, and double check everything. If you send something back, you have to be very clear that they can't just slap the same patty on a gluten free bun.

    I had called the manager prior to arrival to make sure he felt confident they could serve my celiacness. He said to tell my waiter and they will take care of me. Upon sitting I asked for the gf menu and told my waiter he had celiac. He explained he would let the chef know. I ordered and asked if the sweet potato fries were cooked in different oil so I said ok. A few minutes later he told me the manager said he spoke to me and recommends I don't eat the fried food. It is different oil but there could be some splatter from the other grease. I said thank you and they took $3 off my bill. I was just happy they thought it through and were willing to warn me vs just saying "eh, it will probably be fine"

    The restaurant allows you to create your own burger, with a dedicated gluten free menu (and good list of other allergens available if necessary). The gluten free bun is very good, for a gluten free bun, and they have a dedicated gluten free fryer for chips. They don't have a separate food prep area, but will clean down the working area between orders to reduce risks.

    Some places make such a big deal out of accommodating people with special dietary needs, it’s nice when you find a place that gets it right. Gluten free buns for their delicious build your own burgers, tons of topping options, vegan burger and cheese options, and a dedicated gluten free fryer. I had a delicious bison burger on gluten free bun with goat cheese, onion, grilled pineapple, bacon, and avocado with a side of sweet potato fries. Best meal I’ve had in a long time and was not made to feel like it was any problem to accommodate my needs.

But since i wrote “Celiac/gluten allergy” on my order, someone called me and told me their fryer isn’t dedicated because their kitchen is too small at this location.

    I have CD. I requested and received the Gluten-free menu. I ordered a GF sandwich and made sure they knew it was the GF version. When I received the sandwich, I asked again if it was GF because it looked like regular bread- The waiter assured me that it was. It was not. I got sick shortly after I began eating. They blamed the business of the restaurant on the kitchen and waiter's error. While they were highly apologetic, what if I had an allergy instead of CD? Never going back.

    I loved the burger, you can male your own burger with gluten free bread. They also have orchard thieves which is my favorite kind of cider. We paid 38€ for 2 burgers, 3 ciders and sides. 4 stars because they don't have any gluten free dessert (only ice cream but who wants ice cream with this cold?)
