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.

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.

Almost everything is GF. The Flashers are great. The hamburgers are good. All the sides are GF. For some crazy reason, however, the have all these GF options but no GF buns. Still really good.

Hat Creek has a pretty decent selection but I have to say based on my last visit the staff is really untrained on even the basics. Get there early enough to be able to explain exactly what you need.

Love that all their fried items are gluten free and they do a lettuce wrapped burger. Only place where I can eat fried pickles. Sweet potato fries are delicious and you can add saurkraut or avocado to burgers or rhe breakfast plate. Great service and they carry Austin East Cider.

All of their fries items are gluten free! Including fried pickles, sweet potato fries and chicken nuggets. The cashier was incredibly accommodating when I asked if they could change gloves to make my burger. There is no bun option, but I never feel safe ordering a gf bun. They have a great play area for the kids too!

Great if your craving chicken nuggets & deep fried pickles (they are as amazing as they sound). Always have had super friendly service and it's a fun location to take friends or family when they come into town.

This is my go to place for fries!!! I also love the salad with their chicken flashers (it's not your usual fast food salad). Taste great and no icky side effects due to gluten exposure.

I always get their gluten free chicken nuggets and fries. Their sauces are delicious! I have CD and am very sensitive and have never had an issue here!

Tried the chicken tenders and fries twice and while tasty, I've regretted it later. I suspect that because they're "always" gluten-free, there isn't the level of attention to cross-contamination that I need.
