    I think this is my last time here. I honestly don't feel that I can trust things to be gluten-free, their allergen list is incomplete and contradictory, status of individual items seems to be constantly changing, and by their own admission they don't protect against cross-contamination.

    This place is NOT Celiac-friendly. There is so much cross contamination. The buns are toasted on the same equipment as regular buns, regardless if it's gluten free. I watched the chefs touch spatulas to bread with all burgers. The guy who prepped my burger did change his gloves, but I found 2 not gluten-free fries under my food.

    The burger was outstanding, so were the sweet potato chips! I love the fact that they have GF options, but I feel that the cook staff had little knowledge on how to handle/prepare GF food. I had to remind the guy putting the buns together in the containers, to change his gloves before opening the package that was my GF bun. I was nervous the whole time I was there watching them so that they weren't going to cross contaminate my sandwich. I think when someone orders a GF bun, someone (1 person) should take charge of the order from start to finish so the GF person doesn't get sick.

    such a cool hole in the wall! ! They have Gluten free buns provided by local oven. Everyone gets a famous name and the lady that calls them is full of character. I had the Kevin Bacon and it was awesome! !! The burgers are pretty big, I could have easily shared with my 3 Littles. Definitely a must try if you are in the area. Get there early, the line is out the door!

    This restaurant was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives, and it showed them mixing bread crumbs (or crushed ritz crackers) in with their ground beef for their burgers. I always reacted after eating here, and couldn't figure out why a burger with no bun would have me react. Then I saw the show. Ask about the ground beef if you're celiac before eating their meat! I stick with salads here now.

    The first time I went, they were out of gluten free buns. I was very disappointed! On a repeat visit, they had the buns available and everything was very delicious. The bun was tastier than most others I've tried. I liked that it wasn't huge...which allowed the taste of the burger and toppings to shine through. If you're very keen on a bun, I would call first. But overall, I would definitely recommend!

    My verde burger was outstanding, on a terrific gf bun. I had the chips though, and i think there's gluten in the seasoning. Having a reaction to something, and the burger was pretty straight forward. Make sure you question the sides when you order.

    Yes they do provide gluten free bread for burgers. The bread disintegrates as you touch it and becomes a mess after a couple of bites. try the melted cheese fries.-those‚Äč are completely worth it.

    Twisted Root Burger Co. was fantastic! We took a fairly large group with multiple food allergies. They were patient with me, despite the many questions that I had for them. Their menu options were insanely generous! Because they were unable to verify if the seasoning on their gluten free fries did or did not have MSG in it, they made me a fresh bunch of fries. Their staff was super friendly and helpful! The food was great!! We will be stopping there again on our way through east Texas!

Just for good measure we got a shakes. I was so full that if I ate another bite I would have exploded and you would have found bits of me all over the country.

    The customer service was fabulous. We had an issue though. I ordered a burger with a gluten free bun. I got my order and I remarked to my husband that our buns looked the same. He said well maybe they have figured out the gluten free cooking. Eh yea. I took two good sized bites when the server came by and said I need you to stop eating right now. 1. Manager immediately came over and refunded our money, Brought a gluten free meal over and brought water. He knew what was going to happen. He tried to help as much he could. 2. The server could have said nothing. I would not have known. Her honestly alone raises the rating. While a mistake was made and I am still having issues. The way they took ownership of the problem and tried to resolve it as best they could impressed me

    I had great service here and was excited to find a place where I could eat a burger on a GF bun and have fries from a dedicated fryer (both the regular fries and sweet potato fries). I'll definitely be coming back here. I do wish the GF burger toppings were labeled on the menu, but that's really my only complaint. The person taking my order was able to answer my initial questions (about having a dedicated fryer and about some of the topping options), but didn't know that the sauteed onions are sauteed in beer. When I went to pick up my food, they had put the sauteed onions in a separate cup on the side and notified me that they were cooked in beer, so I just gave them to my husband.

    This was my first visit to Twisted Root Burger Co. I ordered the beef buger with GF bun and fries which I was told were made in a dedicated fryer. I know the bun was GF but it was also heated on a grill. The grill may have been the issue. I know that any tme I eat away from home, I take a risk that the restaurant is not as careful I would be at home. From all I had heard about Twisted Root, I expected my meal to be truly GF. It wasn't and we won't go back.

    They just opened in Birmingham and I had heard great things about their burgers. I must say they lived up to the hype. The burgers are cooked perfectly and the gluten free bun is very moist and doesn't fall apart when you add toppings. Their milkshakes are delicious as well. We will be coming back. They are a little pricey, but you get a lot of food for your money. All the other reviews at other locations said they are celiac friendly. I didn't ask but had no problems.

    They are also Vegan Friendly with their veggie burger. Just tell them that your Gluten Free is an allergy not a preference and they will change gloves and cook your bun separately. If you want regular fries they will cook a new batch for you. They will inform you as to what else you should stay away from but it's not much! Great place/only place in town to get a turkey burger along with many other meats!
