Really good with allergies! The manager even came out to bring me the food and say that it is gluten free!

GF menu and knowledgeable staff with great sports bar atmosphere right near the downtown Hilton make this a great lunch or simple dinner spot in Vancouver.

Lots of gluten free choices marked on menu including sandwiches, burgers, tacos and nachos. No dedicated fryer, but you can get salads for a side. Got the pulled pork sandwich with a mixed greens salad. Very good.

This was my first dining experience as a celiac. The food was pretty decent, however the GF menu options were depressing and too few. Most of these places only do the bare minimum to get our business and this is one of them. It wouldn't be at all difficult to open up much more of the menu

This location will ensure that your food is prepared in a separate gluten free area so there’s no chance of cross contamination. The staff/management are very helpful and there are plenty of gluten free options

My server was very aware of cross-contamination and "allergies" If your a celiac you know no-where other than home is 100% safe when you are in control of your environment but this was a great experience. Will definitely come again.

OJ’s was originally one of the safest places for a gluten free meal and the sides were great. Unfortunately the staff at several locations were less than reassuring and the manager too busy to bring meal out separately. I have definitely gotten sick although not full out reaction so.... I would like to give them another go because as stated they were at one time very careful and could handle our large family gatherings. It’s been 2 years so management and staff may have improved

I ordered the salmon sandwich on a GF bun for delivery and it was literally the worst gluten free bun I’ve ever had. It seemed like it was old and past date. It was so stale and hard that I had trouble biting into it. The salmon and the sides were good, and I didn’t have a reaction to the food, but if that’s what they mean by a gf sandwich, I’ll pass.

I’ve eaten safely here a few times. The burgers are great, salads are fresh. No dedicated fryer or options you can’t find anywhere else, but it’s a great atmosphere for going out with friends or for date night.

I ordered to go and called ahead to say I was Celiac and they assured me everything was safe that I ordered. When I went to eat the Brussel sprouts I pulled a breaded shrimp tail out of my mouth. I phoned to tell them and they said oh I guess they are gluten sensitive. They had no idea what the difference was. Now I’m preparing for my reaction to the breaded shrimp tail. They usually have great food just not safe for Celiacs.

The service is hit and miss, but more miss. Also, as a recently-diagnosed celiac & vegetarian (not vegan) I could eat absolutely nothing there. Even my old go-to nachos were off limits because they re-deep fry the chips in a non-dedicated fryer. I was so disappointed!

They offer gluten free buns for burgers and they are very good and soft, was worried I was eating a real one! Have eaten here multiple times and never had any issues.

Staff was great! It was an older gluten free menu and the item I wanted was not listed (it is on the web site) so they checked and were able to make it. Even had gluten free soy sauce for the table. Husband had a burger and it was amazing gluten free bun. Lots of options but be aware it's a shared fryer so wings and fries are a no go

I had the chicken cheddar burger which was pretty good and came on an udis bun which was super dry and crumbly. The charged me 2 dollars for brocollini which was an option and the server didn't let me know it was an upgrade. Mashed potatoes were really good (no gravy or fried onions garnish). Didn't get sick though :)

There are a couple of gluten free items. However, they do NOT have a dedicated gluten free fryer, and the entire GF menu is deep fried. As a celiac, it left one item on the menu to eat.

The staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to having everything separate and knows about the separate fryer issue. While the fries are not gluten free, the garlic mashed potatoes are my personal fav. When receiving a gluten free bun for your burger, there are so many options! I really enjoy eating here.

The wait staff seems very knowledgable. There menu should be updated because it says the fries are gf but they are cooked in the same fryer as gluten. I got a burger with veggies and a salad and got sick. I have celiac so maybe if you are just sensitive it would be fine.
