I had the smash burger lettuce wrapped and I was absolutely delicious. Their homemade pickles are incredible. Fries are also in a dedicated fryer.

All but 3 items on the menu were available GF. When told about my Celiac, server was diligent about how would be prepared and served. Great food and fun environment. Felt great day eating there and next day. Meal was trustworthy for me. Server let us know that they have a dedicated GF fryer and a separate, dedicated GF kitchen area for all cooking and prep of Gf foods.

Amazing! I wasn't told I could have almost anything but I was told what was a sure thing and all the things that could be modified. We shared the Mac & Cheese which is always gluten free and the crispy chicken sandwich which is also GF as long as you get GF bread. Awesome!

I also got very sick from eating here. It was a Friday and the place was packed - the food was really good, but not worth the agony of being glutened. Maybe they are better with cross contamination when it's less busy? I would say skip if you've got Celiac disease.

Amazing!! Arrived hungry to be told I could have anything on the menu except 2 items. Was then told food prepared and cooked separate to stop cross contamination. The food was huge and delicious. I had breakfast potatoes and omelette husband had chip/fries that I could steal.

The first thing my waiter said to the table was “are there any allergies at the table?” They were soo Knowledgeable of celiac and everything was delicious. The crispy chicken sandwich was by far the best sandwich I’ve had in a while! The Mac and cheese was also delicious. Highly recommend

Family of 4, 3 celiac and 1 gluten sensitive. We all ordered the gf chicken sandwich, French fries and gf mac n cheese. Server seemed aware. Nevertheless, at least 3 out of 4 of us got glutened. Still waiting on the 4th to see since they take a bit longer to have symptoms. $300 for the sh*ts. Great :/

The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac disease. The fryer is a dedicated fryer as the entire restaurant only cooks with gluten free flour. I was able to have a gf fried chicken sandwich with fennel slaw and spicy mayo. The French fries were also gf and not cross contaminated. The food was delicious and I didn’t get sick. I would definitely return.

Don’t let the menu deceive you—this place is totally gluten free friendly. Most of their menu items can be made GF and there is a designated fryer meaning you can order the fried chicken sandwich (GF breadcrumbs) and feel safe. GF bread, pasta, breadcrumbs, sauces, fries. I’ll be coming here again soon.

This is an excellent, foodie and cocktail lover worthy restaurant! It also happens to have THE BEST gluten free menu I’ve ever seen. All the fried food is GF - fried chicken, french fries, lobster. I had a fried chicken sandwich with a spicy slaw and homemade pickles on grilled bread. OMG I wish I could come back every day that we are in LA for vacation. Even without a kids menu our kids were super happy with their salmon, french fries and crispy Brussels sprouts.
