Dedicated GF fryer with chicken tenders, tater tots, fries, pickles etc. I’m not sure I’d do a GF burger, but I was disappointed with the last reviewer’s comments since this is a go-to place for my daughter with celiac.

All the sides are gluten free! I had french fries, chicken nuggets, and a few tater tots from my friends plate. All were good and I didn’t get sick.

Excellent selection of quick GF food. Chicken nuggets, fried pickles are GF, as well as burgers with a GF bun or in a lettuce wrap.

Everything is gf except the buns and one sauce! They offer corn tortillas for breakfast items. My favorite is their fried pickles. They even have gluten free chicken nuggets!! Real breaded ones, not grilled! So excited to have a drive-thru safe option! Counter service on the inside. Have been here multiple times have not gotten sick!

My 8 year old has celiac. We ordered 4 chicken flashers. These are double the size of grilled nuggets we get at other drive thru places that are celiac friendly. She loves them!! We also ordered tator tots. We don’t get these when we eat out because most places share fryers. The meal was $9 and it was not a kids meal. This price included the drink. I have no problem paying this price for my celiac kiddo to enjoy a meal out. We love it. The ranch dressing is amazing. Having good ranch can make or break a meal. I’ve been twice and had the little hat both times. Welcome to Little Elm. We are glad to have you here.

Just wanted to add another glowing review of Hat Creek Burger!! I've had their chicken flashers, fried pickles (how fun to have gf fried pickles!!), sweet potato fries, tater tots, lettuce wrapped burgers, breakfast bowl (chose, egg, bacon, and avocado), and, today, the paleo burger (pattie, sweet potatoes, spinach, and avocado in a bowl)! It's all been great! One or two of their dipping sauces are not gluten free, so be sure to clarify. Otherwise, it's a great place for gf!!

I have celiac disease and told the lady taking our order. She assured me everything is gluten free and took my order. I ordered the chicken nuggets and sweet potato fries. Both on the menu are gluten free. when I received the food my boyfriend also had ordered a regular hamburger. And they put both my gluten free food in the bag with the hamburger. Wrapped up of course, but as any Celiac will know it being in the same bag is risky and not very thoughtful of cross-contamination. I should have known it then but I ate it anyway. And now today I'm suffering the consequences. If you have celiac disease I would not recommend eating here.they obviously do not consider cross-contamination while making the food or bagging it. Eat at your own risk.

I got to the front of the line and was observing the open kitchen. Burgers and buns were on separate grills but the prep area was shared with the buns and toppings - when I asked if there was a separate area for GF orders to avoid cross-contamination I got a confused look. She told me that everything else was GF and would tell them but I felt really uncomfortable and left.

Gluten-free chicken tenders! And they're not dry and bland!

Very knowledgeable and willing to answer all of my questions! Was able to get all of the sides and even chicken nuggets! Did not get sick.

The chicken flashers (nuggets) are gluten free as well as the regular and sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries and dipping sauces are delicious. I believe the fryers are safe but double check. Most or all locations have a play area for kids. They would get 5 stars from me if they offered gluten free buns for the burgers.

So grateful to find this place while on a road trip south! Everything here is gluten-free except the buns and happy sauce. We love the tots, fried pickles, and lettuce wrapped burgers! Great stop for kids to get out and run around :)

This place is definitely for families i.e. little kids. The burgers are in fact gluten-free. It’s best to get them wrapped up in lettuce. It’s very noisy. And the burgers are delicious and messy.

Was excited to find a Hat Creek in the area-especially for the kids. Always love getting a lettuce wrapped burger, tenders, fries, and fried pickles here! *Just know that the 'happy sauce' is not gf.

Let them know I had an allergy. The fryer is safe. No gf bun. Had the chicken nuggets and tater tots.

Dedicated fryers! Everything fried is gf. However, not everything in the restaurant is marked so ask before trying- for example the Happy Sauce is not gf and is not marked. Also, the “protocol” for changing gloves was a little shaky, like they were still figuring it out but they did it. So far so good. I ordered a second order of fries.

So many gluten free options. All of the sides are gluten free as well as the chicken nuggets. You can get a lettuce wrap, but the buns for the burgers are not gluten free. I had chicken nuggets, fried pickles, sweet potato fries and regular fries. I only wish things weren't so greasy, but the food was amazing! Plus, their mission on helping disabled people have a job is AMAZING!

Burgers are Lettuce wrap only but all the sides being gf makes up for that, most especially the fried pickles! Hadn’t had them in years and they didn’t disappoint!

Gf fried pickles, gf flash fried chicken nuggets, gf tater tots and fries, this place is great! I’ve been twice now with no bad reaction. The location is fairly new so the staff don’t always know what to do but if you ask for a manager they are very knowledgeable. All their sides are gf with a dedicated fryer too! 10/10 recommend

Like other reviewers said, all the side me are gluten free, AND the manager is a celiac so there was complete understanding when I asked about cross contamination potential. She assured us that all the fried foods are kept in a completely separate area and the kitchen staff that handles the fried gluten free food stays in that area and away from the bread.

They have an allergen list online and at the register. Note: happy sauce is NOT gf. Love the flashers and fries, i get 1/2 sweet potato and 1/2 regular fries.

Very safe! And so yummy and cheap. Way better than that other fast food chicken chain

Giving it a 5-Star rating because they educate their employees on the gluten/celiac/allergen issues. So many places say they are gf, but have no clue what it means. We have gf family members & non-gf family members. The non gf were not impressed with the burgers- frozen patties. However, the gf chicken strips, fries, and tator tots were delicious!!

Burgers can be lettuce wrapped or put in a bowl for gluten-free option. ALL SIDES ARE GLUTEN-FREE! The menu even states it and I confirmed with a manager. Including fried pickles. Yes! Fried pickles! Also have sweet potato fries, regular fries, tater tots, and size salad. Yummy safe breaded chicken flashers (strips) too. Shakes are not safe. Outside play area for kids. Long lines on Friday and Saturday nights. Can avoid them by going through the drive-thru. Repeat customer.

Happy to find this place. It’s a burger joint that also offers salads and flash fried chicken. The REAL French fries are also safe. All fried foods are gluten free. Lettuce wrapped burgers are delicious. Order a Big Hat for more meat, the patties are thin. It’s drive thru or sit down. Nice enclosed patio outside overlooking walking trails. Not a fancy place, but a good choice for something quick and cheap. Chicken nuggets are BIG and it’s REAL chicken. All sauces are GF also. We’ve eaten here twice in a week and did not get sick.

Can’t beat their “flashers” (chicken nuggets) and fries! Extremely family & celiac friendly locations, they also have added deep fried pickles to their menu recently as well! Worth a stop if you’re visiting from out of town!

They are very gluten friendly. All of the sides are gluten-free and nothing with gluten is fried so the French fries are safe. GF is marked on the menu. The salad dressings are gluten-free, but the self-serve sauces over by the fountain machine are not. It appears that the grain burger is not gluten-free. But there are options for meat-eaters as noted on the menu.
