    Can I give ZERO? Went to Wicked Waffle after reading reviews and it was super close to our hotel. Asked for 3 GF waffles, one for me, 2 for my sons (I'm the only one with Celiac, I just wanted to eat their leftovers). I eat half of my sandwich, and then eat some of their and realize the texture & taste is totally different. Sh*t. My receipt says my waffle sandwich is GF, and we asked a couple times. But NOPE. They served me a regular waffle despite mentioning it many times. And it wasn't super busy, they had opened about 5 minutes before we got there. I was pretty ill for the rest of the day. GOOD TIMES. I'm so mad that this place.

    Celiac friendly. Horrible service. The wait is long and for me & my non gf fiancé they were "sick of making clubs" so 7 people who ordered after us got their order before us - multiple gf ones too. Also just down right rude. Waffle was really hard & they didn't actually offer breakfast sandwiches which may because we went at 11

    This was so good! Fantastic waffles. Tons of options. Clearly marked gf options. Separate trays are used for gf prep.

    Walked in and staff immediately informed us of their gluten free menu. They use a completely station for GF waffles and we're extremely knowledgeable! Absolutely 0 concerns about cross-contamination! The 1 star reviews on here are lies. 1 star reviews should be reserved for contaminated food or lack of GF knowledge, not taste.

    Safe for celiacs. They had gluten free waffles pre-made and wrapped separately. They were heated in a separate oven. However, the waffle was terrible. It was chewy and had a bad flavor. They were out of several toppings (whipped cream, Fuji apples, and cheesecake). I ended up getting the chocolate, and the quality of the chocolate tasted very poor. I was really looking forward to this, and I was sorely disappointed. My husband said his non gluten free sandwich waffle was not particularly worth eating either. Give this restaurant a skip and go somewhere else.

    What a great find! It is a small space with counter seating for 6. Upon ordering the GF waffle, they asked if it was a preference or intolerance. When we said intolerance, they asked if it was Celiac. They have a dedicated waffle iron for celiacs and use clean utensils to add the topping. The waffles were delicious!

    GF good for celiacs. Been going here often, but taste has deteriorated in last visit. Waffles were very hard, even after a reorder. Apparently, a change in recipe that the owner does not wish to reverse. We probably won't go back from now.

    I had the Memphis Style Pork and it was fantastic. The BBQ was not too sweet and had a good kick. Great find!

    I got very sick eating here. Everything appears to be separate but when I asked for no cream cheese (because I can't tolerate a lot of lactose the women repeated "no cream cheese?" But them made the sad which with cream cheese. When I apologetically said I was sorry I couldn't eat it the women seemed annoyed and then when I got the sandwich only a few min later she had used the same knife with cream cheese all over it to cut it leaving bits of cream cheese I was trying to pull off. I'm already shy regarding my annoying food challenges and hate having to make people go out of their way but if they are so amazing with contamination per the other reviews I don't think the people reviewing it have celiac? I'm normally able to trust the reviews but I got sick within a hour and the attitude was ridicules despite my major attempt to be as polite and apologetic as I could.

    These gluten free waffles are delicious for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. The turkey sandwich and Nutella/strawberry waffles are amazing! When we request gluten-free and explain that we have a severe allergy, the staff always takes precautions to prevent cross-contamination (separate area, utensils, Nutella jar). We have never had a problem!

    No issues for me and I am celiac. The GF waffle sandwich was really good. Everything was clearly marked on the menu. The turkey, bacon, melted muenster was good. Also, good for non-GF eaters.

    Fantastic! Absolutely lovely. I am on vacation here and back home you can't find gluten free breakfast anywhere. I have celiac and can say their procedures of making the gluten free stuff is 100%. This was worth every penny. Ate it as a brunch today and returning tomorrow for breakfast!

    Great experience! The GF waffles are prepared and kept separate from the regular ones. Everything is made in front of you and one side of the "kitchen" is dedicated GF. They change gloves and one person focused on GF while another tended to regular orders so there was no cross contamination. Absolutely delicious food, can't wait to go back!

    Had a fantastic strawberry waffle made gluten free and had no issues at all. It was very tasty and the employees were careful to double check our order with us and assure us that they have dedicated waffle irons and utensils. We really enjoyed it!

    Great selection of waffles and other items and the staff are super knowledgeable and careful about ensuring that their waffles are gluten free. They even list their Gluten Free Waffle Ingredient List. The staff are super friendly. It was really busy on the times went and eating space is at a premium but it's definitely worth a visit (or more).

    We really like the gf waffles and have had takeout there many times. We have one significant complaint: only once have the gf waffles been labelled on their boxes. So, in order for the celiac members of our family to eat, we work around it by either: 1) we order different toppings on the gf and regular waffles (and then can figure out which is which on our own), or 2) order everyone a gf waffle (which costs more). It's too bad, because the waffles are quite good.

    Got a little nervous since I saw that things were all being made in the same area up front, but when I mentioned I had to have it gluten free they took care of it. Mine was made in a separate iron, far away from the other irons. My server changed his gloves, got out separate cooking utensils and when he accidentally touched a oven mitt on the counter another person used, he changed his gloves again. The waffle sandwich was delicious!

    Delicious waffles. The server made sure to change gloves and was knowledgable about cc. They make the gf waffles earlier in the morning and keep them separated.

    We really enjoyed this place. Felt comfortable easing here after reading their website. When I asked for gluten-free, they asked if it was allergy or dietary preference... which made me feel more comfortable. Food was delicious. Also tried the gluten free & vegan blueberry bar at the register... so good. Kinda wished I got two! Would definitely recommend.

    Had lunch here with my family (3 of 6 are gluten-free). There was one cook making all of our GF waffles on designated equipment, which eased my nerves, as I'm very sensitive to cross-contamination. We got a few savory sandwiches & dessert waffles & everything was super delicious! Service was also exceptional as one of our sandwiches was accidentally knocked off the table & a server, named Ice, immediately jumped on making a free replacement!
