    Great burger shop, they are very knowledgeable of gf and take appropriate measure to assure no cross contamination. They have changed their gf buns which aren't as good. Fries are gluten free as well

    I got the Willy Burger with a side of fries and it was delicious. When you enter the restaurant they hand you a menu(request a gluten free one) and have you figure out what you want to eat.Then you enter your order and ask if you choose to be gluten free or have celiac and mark the order to symbolize your choice. You then grab a booth and wait for your number to be called. This place is the go to place for people with celiac and who eat gluten free. I just got sick a few weeks ago from gluten at another place and this place made be feel safe from gluten.

    The burger I ordered exceeded expectations. It was full of flavor and no cross contamination. They even have a fryer devoted to gf fries which are phenomenal! I didn't give five stars because the service was awkward. Not being there before I didn't understand that you ordered first then grabbed an available seat if there was one. It's a small place but very popular! They were packed. Knowing what to expect from now on I'm sure I'll have a better rating to give.

    Great, great GF burgers. They are very knowledgable about what is safe for celiacs, and for those who are just " gluten sensitive". That being said, in order to have your GF burger to be safe for a celiac, there are limitations such as not putting your bun on the grill (needs to be toasted) and only certain toppings are safe because of cross contamination from the spoons. (No sautéed onions!) I have mixed feelings, because when Wild Willy's was in Portland, they had a special GF section on their grill, and ALL toppings were available. BUT, here in York, the French fries are made in safe friers and are delicious!! Also, when we were there, the white vinegar on the tables was distilled, and safe! Yum! The one thing we really noticed though was an attitude from the front staff, possibly because of ordering GF. Very uncomfortable. All in all, my husband and I will probably be back if we're down there again.

    A small, pleasant place with a decent burger (on Udis) and GOOD fries (dedicated drier) They asked if my GF order was Celiac then informed the kitchen throughly. Side bonus: Bell & Evan chicken and Pineland Farms beef available. Downside: the food is good, the bathrooms are distinctly NOT handicap friendly.

    The burgers are great and they advertise as gluten free. The front end staff, however, has had an attitude each time my family has been here and has ordered a celiac meal. I know that it takes a cook's attention to make a celiac meal more than a normal meal and it might be a challenge when the kitchen is busy, but IF THEY ADVERTISE THAT THEY ARE GLUTEN FREE THEN THEY SHOULD BE PREPARED TO DEAL WITH IT WITHOUT MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT! Never a good feeling when you see the cook roll his eyes and complain to the front staff when a celiac order comes in. My wife and kids did not choose to have Celiacs and we are grateful whenever a restaurant offers them any option to eat out but we are choosing not to eat here anymore.

    Very yummy food! Gf onion rings, French fries and chicken tenders! I'd pass on the fries next time and get more onion rings they were way better than the fries which were kind of soggy and somewhat burned. Chicken tenders were nice and crispy and no reaction!

    So disappointed! I've never been to a Wild Willys so I didn't know what to expect. While ordering I was still excited, based on the prices I thought it was going to be good quality and delicious burgers and sides. But it ended up being way overpriced garbage. The food was greasy and tasteless. And my boyfriend ordered mac and cheese as a side and it was legitimately Kraft macaroni and cheese out of the box. I'll never go back.

    Wild Willy's in Worcester is one of my favorite places. They are incredibly accommodating of celiac disease, and the owner has told me to let him know if there's anything else I'd like to see there gluten free. They have all my favorites though! GF chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fish and chips, burgers, fries, etc. It's a must try!

    The burgers are great & I've never had a reaction here. I'm only giving it three stars because the french fries are prepared in the fryer with glutened items, so not being able to complete the meal with fries is a huge negative for me. The Quincy location has gf fries.

    This place is unbelievable with a great selection of gluten free food. They occasionally introduce "specials" such as mozzarella sticks, pigs in a blanket, cheese/bacon/potato balls, etc and they are all gluten free. Burgers are cooked as ordered. Service is great. Beware... not ALL Wild Willy's have gluten free items. Go to the one in Worcester. It's the best!

    Had a wonderful meal with my husband for a date night. Told them I was GF, and they were great. A very tasty GF bun for my awesome burger and the French fries were safe to eat too. Even their chicken fingers were GF (I will make sure to try them next time!) Also had an angry orchard cider to top it off. I loved going to Wild Willy's when I visited York, Maine as a teen so it's nice to have one closer to home too.

    I have to say, I've tried a lot of very decent gluten free burgers in my area (Red Robin and British Beer Company, to name a few) but I think this one may be the best one I've tried yet. The only bad thing I have to say about them is that the GF menu is not available online. I've now tried the "Willy" burger and the "Conestoga" and both were really really yummy. The rolls are particularly good, better than the standard Udi's rolls I've had other places. I'm not sure where they get them from, but I definitely hadn't had them anywhere else before. The fries are also GF - personally, I thought the fries were nothing special but put some salt on them and they're not bad. The burgers are the real draw for me - I will definitely be back many times. This would definitely be a good place to bring kids!

    Don't know why this particular location takes gluten free product (chicken fingers, fries, etc) and makes then not gluten free. The reason i was told the onions aren't GF at the Worcester location is because the ladle touches the regular bread. You think they'd stop doing that, but at least they're good about cross contamination.

    Was surprised to learn the fries are not gluten free, but understandable. The guacamole and peppers and onions are not gluten free though and I'm really confused as to why. They have no signage about their gluten free options and by asking I opened a Pandora's box of all the odd things that are usually gluten free in every other restaurant.
