    As a regular restaurant, it would have been a 4 star review. As a celiac-friendly restaurant, it cannot be recommended as a good choice. Dine at your own risk! Make sure to speak to a manager first before ordering if you do find yourself here and starving. I was meeting a friend for an early dinner - before it got crowded on a Friday evening. When I ordered, they noted "gluten allergy" on my ticket and I also informed my server to reaffirm no bread, no croutons. I ordered a burger wrapped in lettuce and a side salad. The salad was fine - no issue there. About halfway through cutting up bites of burger, I felt something squishy in my mouth and immediately spit it out. A small chunk of bread was apparently stuck to the bottom of the patty, pointing to the burger having been made with a bun and then "corrected" to lettuce wrapped rather than re-made from scratch. I knew going into the place I had a 50/50 chance of a "safe" experience based on previous reviews. I lost the gamble this time! The waitstaff was friendly - did not hold it against our server at all - and the manager was apologetic, saying she would re-check with the kitchen staff about the important of importance of allergy/intolerance. Even so, unless they seriosuly change their approach, not a good place for us Celiac-types to eat. Stick to the bar and frozen margaritas!

    The manager came out to talk to me before I Ordered. I also have a soy allergy and he went through all the ingredients and even brought the butter package out to me to make sure. So very friendly and accommodating !! I had a steak and veggies and salad and it was delicious !

    Staff was very nice, however, when ask about the chips being gluten free, was told they were all corn. Unfortunately they use the same fryer and that of course doesn't work. Suggestion for Willies. Educate staff about allergies. If you have ability to have a gluten free fryer. Please do so. Post gluten free options I didn't want to be a bother, so I didn't push for answers, just figured staff should know. My stomach is in knots and feel incredibly sick,blazing headaches. Unfortunate as it tasted so good in my mouth
