    This place is perfect for breakfast or brunch! They have a celiac-safe gluten free menu since the owner’s daughter has celiac disease. I LOVE this place! The pancakes are delicious! I feel very safe here.

    There is an excellent gluten free menu that offers breakfast and lunch options. They even have gluten free pancakes that are fabulous! The plates come out with an allergy marker on them, which provided a sense of security. No pain or discomfort after eating either! Definitely celiac approved.

    Great place. Separate gluten free menu, including gluten free pancakes. No GF toast, but they have a GF roll. Just ask for it and have it toasted. Hash browns are cooked separately to avoid cross contamination. Also, all GF food identified with GF stick.

    I went to the shack this morning for breakfast and they do not have a gluten free menu our kitchen. The food on the menu would be perfectly fine for someone without celiac but just trying to stay away from gluten. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with severe celiac.

    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.

    Both times my daughter ate here she got sick, even after making sure the servers knew how important is was that her food be gluten free. Maybe it’s just the two servers we had because we have heard how great they are here with being GF. Disappointing though as my daughter doesn’t dare to go back.

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!

    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

The staff was very knowledgeable and kind. For the first time in 5 years, I ate a pancake from a restaurant! I didn’t know that was possible. I highly recommend giving them a try if you’re in the area!

    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.

    Loved this spot for quick lunch as we headed to St.Louis. Girls LOVED their giant GF pancakes and GF BLT with French fries. GF dedicated fryer. Great atmosphere. Staff and kitchen well trained to provide GF safe food for celiacs. One of my girls is extremely sensitive and had no problems. Our non-celiac family members very much enjoyed their meals too. Thanks to owners for your offerings and training others to take GF safety seriously. Will definitely visit next time we are traveling through!

    Owners have a daughter with celiac. Everyone from hostess to servers are well educated and don't bat an eye when asking for their (extensive!) gluten free menu or ordering from that menu. I felt like normal diner for once. It was wonderful. The fact that the food, atmosphere, and service are fantastic kind of makes it seem to good to be true...but it's deliciously true!!

    I have celiac disease and was excited to try a place that “gets it.” I let my server know that I have celiac and asked for a gf menu. I ordered a pancake. After I was three bites in, my server came back and said he needed to stop me because he couldn’t be certain my pancake was gf because it didn’t come out of the kitchen with the gf toothpick in it. He apologized, took the plate, and had another remade. Thankfully, I don’t have digestive problems when I eat gluten (I have other symptoms) so I don’t know if I was “glutened.” He was very apologetic and I appreciated his honesty. But for someone who gets sick, this could have ruined your day. The pancake was great! Smelled like a funnel cake! I’ll definitely be back to try lunch.

    Even though you still need to ask for the GF menu; it was fantastic to finally have a breakfast skillet again. No reaction to the "Kitchen Sink" and my non-GF mate really enjoyed his Huevos Rancheros (despite having verde/tamatillo sauce instead of the usual red sauce). Will visit again before leaving St. Louis! FYI: Sunday morning (appx. 0900 check in) wait is 35-40min. thru the lunch rush...
