We're all dairy free, my daughter and I are gluten free, and we all enjoyed our food. The Absolute BEST gluten free bun, from any restaurant or bakery anywhere, including other states. Lots Of good toppings for the burgers, and the home made ketchup was really good. French Fries were tasty and when I called that morning to ask about the dedicated fryer, the guy who answered the phone answered immediately and confidently. So refreshing.

Spoke to our waitress about gluten-free menu, she was able to give us one. I ordered the fries since there were other reviews saying they fried them in a separate fryer. Waitress came back and suggested we not to get the fries because they fry them in the same fryer as the onion rings. Just a heads up, maybe something has changed or they didn’t feel like changing fryers that night. It was a Friday night around 7 pm when we went, it was extremely busy

We are visiting from out of town and figured we’d try this place out based on reviews and location. We were so pleased with everything. The food was awesome! Really great gluten free buns and fries. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely be heading back before we leave town!

Had a great dinner with a group of friends. Waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. She provided me with a list of at least 10 burger/sandwich variations, a couple entree salads, side of fruit, and root beer float. She assured me that they do have a dedicated fryer for French fries. I enjoyed the “End” burger with a GF bun and some delicious French fries.

Went here for first time since my daughter was diagnosed. I called ahead bc of the previous comment that they don’t have a dedicated fryer anymore and was told that one of their fryers was down not long ago but that once fixed they are back to separate fryers. We had a great experience, waitress and kitchen seemed to definitely know their stuff, she had gf bun and fries (bun was dry but such is life with gf and she doesn’t use any sauces or toppings…) and we will definitely return!

The waiter was very knowledgeable about what was and wasn’t gluten free, double checked everything and we had no issues. My burger was excellent and the fries were fried in the gluten free dedicated fryer. We will be going back

Had a delicious Turkey burger on a great bun tonight! I called ahead to ask if the turkey burger patty is GF, it is. I prefer Turkey over beef so I ordered one of the GF burger options and subbed the turkey patty. The bun did not fall apart and the fries were delicious!

Bru Burger is now my go to restaurant! Their burgers are so good, and I always have a hard time deciding what to get. Probably my favorite part is not being up charged for gf bun. Definitely a must try if in the area.

This is a favorite of our family because two of us have celiac disease. They have a dedicated fryer so we get to enjoy the fries! The burgers are delicious. The only time I’ve ever had a problem with my food was when I ordered it over the phone for pick up...but when I’m in the restaurant they have been excellent!

They have a dedicated fryer, but just told me that they put the fries on a pan after they are fried where they put other fried foods and refuse to do otherwise. She said she wouldn’t eat the fries as a Celiac, which is the whole reason we came all the way here. Bummed.

Went last night before a show for the first time. GF menu is pretty similar to the regular burger menu. Just no starters. I ordered the Garlic Three Cheese burger with fries. The server actually saw that we had GF menus when we sat down and he went to ask about the fryer without us having to ask. He told us it’s a brand new fryer and dedicated to fries.

Burger came out and everything looked so good. GF bun was actually really good. Fries are amazing. I’d eat here again!

We are there on Saturday. We confirmed they DO have a dedicated fryer. Daughter, who we identified as celiac to the server had a burger on gluten feee bun, fries and a vanilla milkshake. She thought everything was delicious. I had a burger and fries, husband had grilled chicken sandwich and fries. Neither of us have gluten sensitivity. About an hour after we left, daughter got really bad stomach cramps and had to urgently get to the bathroom. She had stomach pain and cramping for the rest of the evening. The reason I am not sure it was gluten is because my stomach was cramping badly at about the 3 hour post meal mark. My husband was fine. He did not have hamburger and she and I both did. I have been there numerous times without incident, my daughter has not. So again, it may not have been cross contamination of gluten, but something made her very sick. Use caution.
