Dedicated fryer with old style thick cut fries. There wasn’t a gluten free bun advertised but they were happy to use a lettuce wrap instead. Very tasty and filling. Communal grill though so beware if you are super sensitive.

Very few GF options. Fries are cooked in same fryer as other items.

Burgers are good but outside of that. Good luck

Dedicated fryer for french fries but there isn't fried chicken. They made my daughter a grilled cheese on GF hamburger buns. She loved it! I had a grilled chicken sandwich. Also, it was very clean and the owner was friendly.

I LOVE these burgers! I loved them prior to my diagnosis but they do have gluten free buns but weren’t marked on the menu but almost any burger can be made gf! I got the Annie Oakley and it was delicious. The fryer is also separate so you can enjoy yummy fries!

Just had to leave Wild Willys York Maine location without eating after being informed that they could not accommodate multiple simultaneous gluten free orders. The man taking orders was rude and actually said he "couldn't believe" that we legitimately needed 4 celiac orders at once. When I asked if he'd rather not serve us, he said "yes." So we left. Um, it's a genetic thing and we're all in the same family. I would not recommend attempting to eat here if you have more than one gf person in your party and even then I'd be prepared for some attitude. If you really can't or don't want to accommodate gluten free, don't advertise it. I have eaten here before without getting sick, but doubt I'll be back because I don't appreciate being called a liar about a medical condition I didn't choose.

Great burgers. They are pretty big. My 6 yr and 9 yr old boys only ate 1/2. Fries are fresh cut and cooked in dedicated fryer.

Other gf options include chicken sandwich and ice cream for dessert.

Not a huge gf menu, but it's a burger and fry place, so get the burger and fries! Yummm.

Awesome!!! Celiac menu available. They are very clear that you cannot substitute anything on the menu if you have celiacs. Not to worry, the burger was fantastic, the bun was soft, and I got to eat fries with my family! They recommend ordering all fries for the table off the GF menu so there is no risk of contamination. The fries are cooked in dedicated oil. The GF order was placed separately and delivered on a separate tray. My non-celiac family members were equally excited with the food and all want to go back too. Everyone was happy!

Can't wait to go back!!!

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.
