Review of UpRooted

2816 IL-120, McHenry, IL 60051

Overall Rating


They have a separate GF menu that has a variety of options. I ordered the chicken caprese sandwich and it was served on an Udi’s bun and it was very tasty. The sandwich was served with fries and coleslaw. The fries are made in a dedicated fryer.

The only thing that throws a red flag for me is that their menu is labeled “Gluten Friendly” as opposed to “Gluten Free”. Based on that, I’m not 100% confident that the kitchen is celiac safe. We had a good experience at Uprooted and we plan to dine their again. The next time o am there, I plan to ask more questions about the kitchen and prep areas just to ease my concerns.
