The girl taking the order sounded like she had jist woken up from a nap, telling her our order was more than painful. She was not paying attention at all. Even after having her read back the order and stating multiple times a gluten allergy we still had a bad outcome. Definitely wont be trying this again.

They have gluten free buns. But everything is cross contaminated. And they don’t have designated gf fryer. We ended up leaving because they didn’t reassure us that they would try, at all , to make sure the gf bun wasn’t contaminated. Definitely won’t be back

I love their safety protocols in place. The food is always good but limited options. It’s nice though ti have someplace to relax and have a meal.

I have eaten here multiple time and have not gotten sick. I always choose broccoli as my side since there is not a dedicated frier, but the burgers and gf buns are great.

Gluten free items are clearly marked in their regular menu. They have several to choose from. I had the gluten free salmon salad and brought my own dressing. Server noted it well on the order and food was great.

I always loved Ford’s Garage before my diagnosis, but this was the first time I’ve been there since. I didn’t ask for the gluten free menu as I had already previewed GF items on the website. However, the main menu does indicate a GF menu is available. I let our server know I have a “Gluten Allergy” as I verified the ChickenCobb Salad Is Gluten Free. She said she would flag my order so that the kitchen would know to be extra cautious and double check all ingredients. My food was brought out by itself. I was a bit confused, but the person who delivered it said, “we take your allergy very seriously. Making sure your food is safe is top priority for us. It has to be reviewed by a manager before being sent and has to be served separate from the rest of the order by a manager.” Wow! Color me impressed!! I’ll definitely be back!!

This place already has a lot of positive reviews, and now we see why! Kitchen is extremely careful in preparing gluten-free. A chef brought the gf food out separately and talked to us about how they take care in making they’re gluten-free orders. Everything tasted great! They do not have a separate fryer so no GF fries. Fun atmosphere! Great experience.

UPDATE- my last review was 2 years ago and we went back again today and I really wanted to let you know they have stepped up their GF game! Menu has more GF items marked, my burger had a gf flag and they were more knowledgeable and attentive to my allergies. Good job Fords Garage! ORIGINAL REVIEW- They have a gluten free menu!!! I’m GF and DF so I was further limited but our server was knowledgeable and accommodating. I had the grilled chicken Cobb salad and it was excellent! Such a cute Resturaunt with so much fun stuff to look at!

Went during covid for an early dinner. Out of 2 of the 5 gf sides (beans and broccoli). No dedicated fryer, but burger was yummy even without a side of fries. Server was really nice but still messed up 2 out of 3 meals and we were only 1 of 5 tables in the entire place and not all were her tables. Good in a pinch.

Amazing food! I had the cheeseburger, coleslaw and mashed potatoes, all delicious. The staff takes allergies seriously and it was great to feel at ease knowing my meal was safe. Definitely would eat here again!

First time customer. I was thoroughly impressed. The manager came out to bring my side salad and explained that anything marked as a food allergy is double plated and is brought out separately by a manager and is kept separate from the rest of the tables order. I ordered a black n bleu burger with turkey instead of beef. It came on an udis bun. And I got the cheddar mashed potato side. I will definitely be returning

The staff was very helpful in explaining their processes for cooking food from the gluten free menu. The menu had decent options as well. Unfortunately, as knowledgeable as the staff was, the food itself left something to be desired; it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great. Overall, just OK. Kind of a let down.

The atmosphere was great, the server was extremely helpful. Appreciated the gluten free menu which covered entrees not starters and dessert. Did not try the fries as there is no dedicated fryer. Otherwise there was a wide variety of ciders on the menu as well as Omission Gluten Free beer.

Boring GF menu, seems like a gesture of accommodation instead of any actual effort to please. Salads & bunless burger. Why restaurants don't keep GF buns in the freezer baffles me. Would not return.

This is a new restaurant in my area so I thought I would try it out. The waitress did not know they even had a Gluten Free Menu. She did not know what Celiac Disease was. I told her to tell the cooks to keep my food separate from gluten and take extra precautions. I got super sick eating their Beans and Cobb Salad. I will not eat there again! It was awful.
