    Attentive staff - I ordered online delivery and chose fries on the side. The manager called me to warn their fryer is not safe and substituted for something else. So even though I was dissappointed not to get fries I felt good knowing he was looking out. Would try again

    There is an extra gluten free menu and the waitresses was knowledgeable. She ask, if we want the fries, because they get fried in the same oil as some wheat stuff. The burger was super delicious

    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.

    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.

    Understood my allergy and cooked everything well so I did not get sick. But the bun fell apart so quickly I couldn’t eat it at all. I know this is typical of GF buns, but this was probably the worst one I’ve had. But the burger itself was delicious at least.

    Miami International Airport, Terminal D - North Terminal, Gate D33, 2100 NW 42nd Ave, Miami, FL 33126

    Based on previous reviews we made our way here. I have severe celiacs and end up in an ambulance on my way to the ER when I have any so eating in the airport is scary and very limited. Rosemarie was who greeted us and was very helpful. She crossed out all of the items I couldn’t eat. She informed us that the second fryer was down so not to eat the fries or bacon due to cross contamination right now. Should be fixed soon. Even if I get sick she informed my server and did her best to protect me. That’s a win as far as I’m concerned. Also the shakes are safe without whip cream

    Sooo, as I was reading the reviews, one person spoke of the infamous and majestic Rosemarie. Fear not friends, she is real and knows her stuff. She specifically took the time to mark off every item that wasn’t gluten free friendly and, as a 16 year celiac, she even knew a few ingredient choices that weren’t celiac friendly that I didn’t even know about. Pretty impressed. I haven’t gotten the food yet, I don’t know if it will taste as well as the service, but I don’t care. I’m hungry can I’ve been traveling all day, and I feel like I’m not going to be glutenated! Sweet!

    Three stars as a rating is required but didn’t eat here because couldn’t. They are gf friendly ONLY if you aren’t sensitive to cross contamination. Offer chips instead of fries but the burgers are just slapped,into a gf bun, with no effort at making them safe for celiacs.Was turned away as they said they couldn’t accommodate celiac. Disappointing since this is listed on this site as celiac friendly. Do appreciate the honesty. Miami airport was impossible to eat at as a celiac. Had to make do with cereal I’d brought and milk from Starbucks.

    Updating my previous review as I was able to try this place this time around. As others mention, Rosemarie is very helpful and takes the time to go through the menu and cross off items that are not gluten free. Was very impressed that she took the time given the busy environment. I had a hamburger with GF bun and various sides. Both normal and sweet potato fries are fried in a separate fryer so no issues there. —PREVIOUS REVIEW— Would have loved to try this place, but their posted hours are not correct. Was told they do not open until 7:30AM. Typical for airport restaurant to just do what they want.

    The first few times I came here, I had no problems and enjoyed a good GF burger joint. The last two times I've gotten sick. The waiter came out and told me they put my burger/cheese on the wrong bun and were "melting new cheese" to put on the GF bun. I told him that I'm Celiac, and they have to re-make anything that came into contact with the gluten bun. He appeared to understand, but then my burger came out suspiciously quickly for having to be remade. Very disappointing.

    I’ve eaten here 6 times over last 2 months, and have been the sick the last 3 times. I’m not going back. I’ve a very, very sensitive Celiac sufferer. If you just need GF- then this will work for you. GF burgers, buns, fries are all available. Including GF alcoholic beverages, such as angry orchard in bottles. Don’t try Omission Beer (NOT celiac friendly), and I haven’t ordered milk shakes due to possible cross-contamination. Staff is learning about celiac- but not there yet. Many, many options available. Just not suited for Celiac sufferers. Good parking available in garage in back. Service is great.

    Extensive separate gluten free menu. Wait staff knowledgeable of celiac and cross contamination. Separate fryer used for gluten free fries and separate part of the kitchen used for cooking gluten free. I had a veggie sandwich, fries and a shake and my 9 year old had cheese burger, fries and a shake. The gluten free buns used was nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and had zero issues later.

It’s not the best food in the world lol But to a celiac who hadn’t had REAL FOOD in a week..this place was heaven!

    No stars. Waited 45 minutes for a table. Ordered and then were told they were out of GF buns. I asked to speak to a manager and asked if they could go to the Whole Foods Market that was next door (it is literally next door) to them to get some for our party of 6. Nope, they were unwilling to do so. We left. So disappointed.

    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.
