Great food and good understanding of cross contamination. But you have to cook your own breakfast. They brought a gluten free griddle since the ones built into the table are for gluten. The pancakes and French toast are all you can eat, and we loved our meal. Just don't expect takeout or a quick brunch.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They have dedicated grills and spatulas for celiac and were very clear on cross contamination. My kids loved the GF pancakes. To me they were a little wooden and inconsistent, one batch thin and one batch thicker batter. However the experience was fantastic and my kid usually feels so left out of fun restaurants it was worth it to me. Toppings were abundant and delicious.
Worst place ever - if I️ could give them a zero - I️ would! Waitress: what brought u here? Me: your gluten free options! Ordered chicken salad with no bread. My son ordered a gf pancake breakfast. Told her we were both gf both before ordering and after. She said mine comes on a sandwich - I️ said no bread. I️ repeated myself at least 5 times - no bread! Mine ended up coming with bread on the side. I️ sent it back & it was back on my table in less than a minute. I️ sent it back and asked for a new one after speaking to the manager. I️ ordered pineapple chicken it came without pineapple! I️ ordered a latte & wAter - it came after the food order - 25 minutes later. My son’s pancakes tasted like sand, it was so bad I️ wouldn’t give it to a homeless person because they deserve better. Waiting for 1 hour for crap food, you would be better off eating what was in the pfunky griddle dumpster. Never going anywhere near this place again! Both the toilet and the sink were backing up & they didn’t seem to be concerned. This was by far the worst restaurant I have ever had the misfortune of eating at. The manager felt she was doing me a big favor by taking off the coffee which tasted disgusting & was cold!
There is a sign at the hostess counter asking that you make allergies known up front. Because the griddles are built in to the table, I was concerned. However, they gave us a table that had a portable griddle on top. The portable griddle is used for those with celiac. My whole family ordered the gf pancakes to avoid contamination as all pancakes are cooked together. I heard the wait staff tell someone else that they do also thoroughly clean the table griddles between uses, but they would be glad to give him a designated portable one if he wasn't comfortable with the one there. The pancakes are all you can eat and are good. Toppings are .95 each.
I cook gluten free all the time everyday. I didn't really care for the fact that I had to cook my own. ( pancakes, eggs and hash browns) it's a neat experience but the food was not good at all. First we waited forever when there were empty tables. Then the griddle they provided for gf customers was old and kept turning off and the waiters said u just wiggle it. Half of my food wasn't even cooked when my husband had cooked his. I let the manager know and she apologized but until they get new griddles I Wundt think of coming back. On top of that the gf batter mix given is so gritty. It wasn't great I cudnt eat more than one. Another thing was don't come here to spend quality time- the ventilation system is so loud it's hard to hear, people were yelling over each other. It wasn't mine or my husbands cup of tea but it may be an experience that some one else besides us may enjoy
It's s cool experience if you are looking some thing different. There is a griddle at every table and you cook your own food. They are very good about gf, they actual put an electric griddle on which is dedicated gf (make sure you tell them when you get your table). They have gf pancake mix, toast, and French toast.
This place is great! My boyfriend (non-GF) and I (Celiac) went for Sunday breakfast. I let the hostess know we had to eat GF and they seated us at a table with an allergen griddle. They also asked if I was celiac, which was reassuring. It was amazing! All you can eat GF pancakes with potatoes and eggs. The control freak in me appreciated cooking my own food in a restaurant, knowing that it wouldn't be cross-contaminated. Highly recommend!
This place is a great place if you have Celiac. As soon as we went in we saw GF pancake mix for sale on a big rack next to the front counter. When we spoke to the hostess we advised her we needed GF and she said was it because of Celiac. That was impressive itself. She said she would need to prepare the griddle for us. Once it was prepared she sat us. The entire staff was well versed in the GF process. We got the GF pancakes and they were great. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend this.
This place was fun, but definitely got a little crowded with 5 people and a baby at the same table and using the same griddle. It would've been more fun with only a couple people. We felt like the food wasn't anything special, especially the gf batter. I can make better pancakes at home - and I did just as much work as if I were making them at home. Overall pretty fun experience, but I won't rush back.
I went today and the waitress was only 2 weeks on the job. I was asking a lot of question about cross contamination and I got many `deer in a headlight` looks from her. A lot of `Im not sure` or `maybes`. Last thing I wanna hear, really. I had to get the owner who gave me more convincing answers. Maybe this place used to be celiac friendly, but not with this new waitress. Also the restaurant was kind of dirty. Didn't get sick but definitely Not going back.
Went with a group of 4. Everyone thought their food (sandwiches and wraps) was terrible and not any better than something you could buy packaged at a store deli. I got the gluten free pancakes and was disappointed with how dry and bland they were. My topping was only enough to put on half the pancakes, and was nothing more than a small scoop of frozen raspberry seeds and a couple blueberries. The seating was cramped, the area we sat at was uneven so things were rolling off the table, and the sink in the restroom was clogged and full of standing water.
The food was phenomenal! The wait staff were very knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. I can honestly say that they have the best GF pancake batter I have had, I had to question the sever because the taste and texture was exactly like eating regular gluten pancakes. This place is highly recommended, and the next time I am in Nashville I will plan on coming here.
Awesome find!! Driving through Nashville and we were looking for a safe, gluten free breakfast restaurant. After checking out the reviews online, we decided to go to the Pfunky Griddle. This place is amazing. There is a sign on the front counter to alert them if you have Celiac Disease. Each table has a built in griddle in the middle (think Hibachi style). If you have Celiac Disease, they will give you a portable griddle that sits on top of the regular griddle and they only use gluten free batter on these portable griddles to prevent cross contamination. We ordered the gluten free pancakes. There were 5 of us and we each ordered different toppings. They brought our batter out to us and we started cooking the pancakes on the griddle. Each person added their own toppings to their pancakes. There was even non-stick spray that was labeled Gluten Free to use. The pancakes were super yummy!!! We felt safe knowing that the food was not subject to cross contamination. Fun and friendly place with good food. Would definitely go back. Highly recommend for people with Celiac.
This was a fun atmosphere and experience! They gave me a gluten free griddle for my food. I had the pancakes (which were made dairy free as well and can be made vegan). They weren't the greatest gluten free pancakes I've had but I think it's more about the atmosphere than excellent food. I'd definitely go back but probably get eggs and potatoes! Watching people around you who can't cook is pretty entertaining too!!
This Nashville hotspot offers gluten-free pancakes and French toast with 20 different toppings to choose from. You can make your own breakfast or lunch on a hot griddle that's right in the center of your table or order from the kitchen if you prefer.
wow i am absolutely amazed!! you cook your own eggs on a DEDICATED gluten free griddle . the atmosphere is awesome i feel like im at someones house. not to mention the extremely reasonable prices. i will always be back here. i am so happy i can be CERTAIN i wont get sick as a celiac.
Well I have to agree the atmosphere is less than desirable. Indeed it is Celiac friendly. I had a special griddle and I made gluten free French toast. I was though very uncomfortable because we were seated out on an enclosed porch and the griddles built into the tables throw off a lot of heat on a hot summer day. The French toast though was very good as was the sausage. Not sure I would be a repeat customer because it wasn't aesthetically appealing. Glad I tried it though. My husband had his once a year on vacation sausage biscuits and gravy which he thought were very good. Looked like the kids (and there were a ton of them) had fun making their own pancakes.
This place is kinda gross. Food was fine, if you enjoy eating inside of a dumpster. Wear disposable clothes if you go. You WILL stink like an oily rag when you are through. That being said, they DO have GF pancakes. Still, if you are an able-bodied adult, who enjoys cleanliness, this may not be your thing.
