All sides (except onion rings) are GF! Tots are amazing as was the burger. They have GF buns. They put an allergy warning on mine and I had NO issues. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ My only problem- wait time is forever!!!

I’ve eaten here and have been fine but I’ve also eaten here and have gotten glutened. You need to tell the waiter you have an allergy. If you don’t they will cross contaminate your food. I suggest going when they are not super busy. Good tarot tots!

Not impressed. Was served my GF burger on a non GF bun. Their sauce is not GF. Fries were good. Do not think it is anything I would make a special trip for.

I had the "our burger" and it was so good. I also had a couple fries. Luckily it was an early night for us afterwards bc I have celiac disease and got so sick when I got home. I don't know what it was because the waiter said they are super cautious and even change their gloves before handling the food.

Delicious GF bun. Dedicated fryer for only fries. Had the "our burger". Tasty!! The only bad thing is they don't have a GF menu and the gal taking our order didn't know what was GF. She asked a manager and the manager quickly said everything we couldn't have and when we asked about the our burger - she said it was ok. Just would feel more comfortable knowing exactly what is gf with a written menu and knowing that all their staff is trained. They told me they Handle the gf rolls separate and only burgers go on the grill - no buns.

First time I came I was given a normal bun and told Wahl sauce was gf. Second time I was given a gf bun and told Wahl sauce was not gf. Last time I went I had no problems. I feel like they are doing better because they have been open for a year now.

I had a hamburger on an Udi’s bun. The hamburger patty was delicious however the fries tasted dry. (At least they have a dedicated fryer.) This restaurant is located within the ”downtown” section of Owa. A great place to grab a bite to eat and walk around.

This is my first time eating at Wahlburgers and really happy to know they have gluten free options for buns, bread and croutons! I have gluten sensitivity so it was nice to know that I was able to enjoy my meal without feeling left out when hanging with my boyfriend. Anyone who has celiac or non celiac sensitivity... this is a gluten free friendly place, just let the staffs know when ordering!

The waitress was very knowledgeable about celiac disease and gave good recommendations. The bbq burger was good and the GF bun was delicious as well. Unfortunately their bbq sauce is it GF. I was bummed because I love bbq sauce! I substituted for the Wahl sauce instead. The fried and tots are cooked in a separate fryer so they are GF which is a rare find!

I came here a year ago without any problems. However, I went there last night and found a different experience. First of all, they were busy. We had to sit in the upper floor, which meant we had to go up to the counter and order our own food without waiter/waitress assistance. This made me nervous. So I ordered my burger and sweet potato tots (dedicated fryer). I tested all of the food together with my Nima, and of course found gluten. I had noticed what looked like some carmelized onion stuck to my GF bun, so I surely added that. I showed the Nima result to the manager, and he said it should be GF; if I didn’t want that, I could get a salad or something else, but that was one of their pretty safe bets. I decided to test just the tots again, and they returned no gluten found. I didn’t have another test capsule to test the burger again separately, so we got our money refunded for the burger. Needless to say, I was disappointed. They need to tighten up their attention to detail on their GF process.

No dedicated GF menu, but offer GF bread and buns (my waiter asked me to specify which one I wanted). I’m intolerant, but not Celiac, so typically as long as I don’t actively eat gluten I’m OK, and I’ve eaten at this location a few times with no issue, but unfortunately my luck ran out, and I reacted to something I ate here. :(

The location does have a dedicated dryer, but the wait staff was not confident in what they suggested. The turkey burger is brought in, so they could not confirm if was GF. Their beef is GF. The fries are GF if you tell them to use the GF fryer. They do have GF buns. Overall, there are better places to go in Toronto.

They gave us all wheat filled food after saying they understood celiac. When confronted with the mistake the worker said “you said celiac not gluten free.” Enough said. My mom was very sick as she took a bite before I noticed our food looked like wheat bread not gf. Not safe.

Wahlburger’s has great gluten free options!! They have a gluten free bun and a dedicated fryer for French Fries & Tater Tots. The only thing that is not gluten free is the BBQ sauce. I ordered a double stack because the patties are super thin along with tater tots. Great food & reasonably priced! I’ve been here numerous times with no issues.

I'm usually leery of dedicated fryers but or waiter put me at ease. The fries and sweet potato tots were amazing and a rare treat to have when needing to be gluten-free. Our burgers, on toasted gluten-free bread were delicious too. We're definitely going back whenever we're in the area.

Had a great burger in gf bun here. Neat place. The fries are gf as well, but had corn starch which is another allergy that knocked me out of the fries. The area Owa where Wahlburgers is is a great area to explore, especially families with kids. They had an allergen menu and looked up ingredients for me. I would definitely go back.

Waitress said everything on the menu could be made gluten free and that only barbecue sauce had gluten in it. She also said all the sides were fine except onion rings. I specifically told her that I have a serious gluten allergy and asked about their fryers and preparation. She did not seem concerned at all and seemed unsure if there was a dedicated fryer for the sides. Because of all the confliction, I ordered a grilled cheese on gluten free bread, thinking that wouldn’t be messed up. My order was not announced as gluten free when the waitress brought it out, which unnerved me. I again asked about the fries and she said yeah yeah all our fries are gluten free. I chose not to eat the fries since the waitress seemed to have no idea. Not even 10 minutes after I finished eating, I got sick and have remained sick since then. Obviously, something was not safe. I was rather irritated that the waitress took no concern for my allergies.

I’ve eaten here so many times and never gotten sick. Most things on the menu can be made gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer so you can eat fries and tots. The bun is good (I think it’s Udi’s) and the staff seemed knowledgeable.

The food is good, however, they DO NOT have a dedicated fryer and therefore cannot do fries...they do offer gluten free buns and croutons, however, you must be very diligent in asking about celiac friendly food (waitress told us the Caesar dressing was safe, I asked to see the ingredients, and it contains Worcestershire). Otherwise, they want to help, just make sure you advocate for yourself.

Everything was perfect and not at all sick after eating here! Definitely eat here!!!!

They cooked my gf grilled cheese in hamburger grease. It was burnt and disgusting. I was sick afterwards so there’s cross contamination from something. The waitress seemed clueless about GF.

One of the best GF burger buns I've had! Dedicated fryer for fries and tots, really knowledgeable server! They also offer GF bread and croutons and they offer bowls/salads if you feel like skipping the bread all together. Will definitely be back!

They do serve gluten free buns... but they obviously don’t have a gluten free designated toaster since my bun was not toasted. Restaurants serving gluten free buns should know that they need to toast gluten free buns to avoid the bun crumbling. Also cheddar cheese is fake and the burgers aren’t even good

The staff at this particular location were not knowledgeable about GF and cross contamination as far as Celiac Disease. Super disappointed bc the one in Foley, AL was amazing with accommodating my celiac needs. I tried to contact corporate but got no response. The location was also very grubby and dirty.

We asked about GF and they gave us a vegetarian menu. They kept calling our request for GF "vegetarian" and then got insulted and walked away when i explained that it was important for our health to get it right and asked if they seriously didn't know that Gluten Free and Vegetarian were different issues. The bartender ended up waiting on us because the waiter was too sensitive to continue helping us or even make eye contact. He DID however make a spectacular display of slamming cups and dishes behind our heads. Even if the food is fantastic, you take a chance just with the attitudes and the food isn't that great. 13.00 for burger and fries.
