Owners have daughter with Celiac so they have a whole Gluten free menu. I choose the King Lives pancake. It was delicious! This place is a gluten free treat. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Sat at the bar and waited on by Andy. He made our experience delightful.

I voted for this as the best breakfast in KC! I went for my birthday and had the Meg Ryan. I had the most delicious gluten-free pancake and it was huge! Everything was delicious and I didn’t have any digestive issues. I can’t wait to go again! The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating to my food allergies. I feel like this is a very safe place to eat!

I finaply found tine to go, and on their busiest day. Long wait, but I heard it was worth it. Sunday's they only serve breakfast, no lunch which was dissapointing. My denver omlete had cheese, eggs, ham, and green peppers. It was overcooked on the outside, and almost undercooked on the inside. It was bland. Hash browns were brown on one side, so majority was not crunchy. I was excited to not be sick an hour later, but terribly dissapointed a few hours later when I ended up sick. I will go back to try their lunch sometime, but will be very diligent in how I order and ask a lot more questions. While their menu states CF and I believe they have trained their employees, we are always at risk. Overall, the omelette was not at all worth the 65 minute wait.

Best breakfast place I have ever been to. They put a stick on the plate to tell you it was prepared in the gluten free kitchen, sometimes they forget the stick and the waitress will double check or just get it remade to be sure. The gluten free pancakes are really good. You can do the "do it yourself meg ryan" on the regular menu and it can be gluten free or you have the gluten free menu. I normally get their white trash screwdrivers with titos. There was 1 time they messed up my drink and I got sick but before I finished it, the waitress in training came over and let me know what happened, made me a new one, and comped it. I felt bad for her because it wasn't her mistake and she knew how bad it could be for me. Other than that 1 moment that 1 time, I have not had any issues there and love taking my family and we have gone at least 3 dozen times.

This is one of my FAVORITE breakfast places!! They have delicious gluten free options, including pancakes, sandwiches, and fries! The manager even told us that they could make crispy chicken tenders for us if we let them know in advance. I have been to this restaurant three times and have never been disappointed. I would definitely recommend this place!

Great prices for GF, didn't feel like I was being priced gouged. We enjoyed a pancake (as big as a plate), a skillet egg dish, and a delicious turkey sandwich on a delicious hoagie. This is our new favorite place in OP.

Absolutely love this place! I got an omelette with shredded hash and a chocolate chip pancake. Yes, a pancake! It was incredible. Our waitress was so friendly and very accommodating with my questions. I very rarely eat out because I worry about getting sick but Shack's has a dedicated skillet and preparation space AND my meal came with a Gluten Free flag to signal my allergy. The owners daughter has celiac and they have a specific gf menu. Can't wait to come back and try their lunch items

Ate here today after seeing lots of positive feedback on Facebook. Server was knowledgeable and my food came out with a gf toothpick. I felt very comfortable eating here and look forward to going back for their pancakes. I think they have a dedicated fryer and potentially dedicated space but I didn’t ask based on what I ordered. The menu says they use separate skillets and such for their gf meals. The owners daughter has celiac so it seems like they are very on top of gf food and prep.

The Shack in Overland Park has amazing brunch!! I have Celiac Disease and I was super impressed with the extensive menu (the owner’s daughter also has Celiac Disease). I ordered a chocolate chip pancake the size of the plate, 2 sausage links, and French fries for about $15. Delicious food and enough for leftovers too. My friend ordered the breakfast burrito (not gluten free). Service was amazing as well. Fun atmosphere of writing on the walls.

SO GOOD! The Shack is one of few places you don’t sit there feeling left out when everyone else is eating pancakes. YES, pancakes!!! The owners daughter has celiac and they have a special GF menu called Hanna’s at The Shack, full of breakfast and lunch options. Your food comes out with GF labeled toothpicks so you don’t sit there questioning, why does this look SO good, you sure I can eat this?!?

THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! There is a delicious GF menu with many options that are celiac safe AND an amazing regular menu. I get the Meg Ryan, which is on the regular menu, but it's just a combination of carb, meat, eggs, and hashbrowns, so I order it with the GF blueberry pancakes. You will feel like a normal human eating here. THANK YOU to the owners! (It get crowded, so get there early or late!)

Although they are amazing with GF sensitivities, if you have dairy sensitivities on top of GF beware. They add sour cream to pancakes and egg batter. I ended up eating special eggs made for me today, that’s it. The fruit I ordered never came. Although the manager was super sweet and accommodating. I don’t understand why America feels the need to add all this extra crap to their food. Whatever happened to “just eggs” or “just pancakes.” That’s why everyone has high cholesterol, seriously.
