    The burgers are decent and they have gluten free buns- but last time I ate there I was told their fries were gluten free and it turns out they are made in the same fryer...this was after I ate them! Also the owner was pretty rude

    CELIACS BEWARE - I went to this restaurant tonight and asked all the questions about their gluten free facilities before ordering. I was assured that they had separate prep areas and fryolaters. I ordered my dinner and sat down. When the food came I asked the waitress if the food was gluten free. She said yes it was. I then found out, quite by accident, that the roll that was given to me with my meal was NOT gluten free. Of course, this was after I had eaten it. By the time I got home I was in severe pain and my mouth was swollen. Though they were apologetic the damage was done. Sadly,I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone with Celiacs.

    Staff was very friendly. Got a burger way too juicy it made my bun so soggy, it just disintegrated and was inedible.

    The staff were friendly and as helpful as possible by checking ingredients lists on sauces for gluten containing ingredients. However, I came here because I really wanted fries, but when I asked about the dedicated fryer the said they didn't have one which was very disappointing. I also ordered grilled pineapple on my portabella mushroom "burger" but they forgot to put it on. All and all the burger was very good as was the gluten bread, but I don't know that I will come back.

    Very good burgers!! Been twice, service was decent all depends on who u get. Not a sit down service restaurant more of a cafe style. They have a good size menu and gluten free buns that were tasty.

    The food is very good if you are looking for burgers/hot dogs with fries. The fries are made in a separate fryer and the gf buns are great(udi's I believe). There could be a very slight risk of cross contamination hence 4 stars. I have not gotten any symptoms the 5+ times I've eaten there. Great option because tastes great and there really aren't many affordable options in the area.
