So many yummy options for GF. Everything is marked on the menu. I had the pulled pork sandwich on a GF roll. Family enjoyed their meal.

Claims there is no cross-contamination, but seeing as I have gotten sick every time I’ve eaten there, this is not to be believed.

Got curbside due to the pandemic. Menu marked with gluten free items. I ordered menu items marked gluten free. Southwest tots, cornflake fried chicken and buffalo cauliflower were the menu items I ate. Either they weren’t prepared gluten free or some of it got contaminated. The night we ordered I had a rash and a migraine but didn’t think it was the food because of the listing of gluten free. I had leftovers the next day and that’s when I knew rash again migraine and my insides were on fire. Not sure how they go about gluten free in the kitchen and precautions to prevent cross contamination. Something went wrong.

Good selection of gluten free on the menu, I felt safe placing an order before having the food and reactions. I have ordered from other places that have marked gluten free items and haven’t had problems.

The chicken fingers are not GF (cornflakes used in batter are not certified gluten free), so everything fried is contaminated. Mgmt is aware, but doesn't want to change the recipe.

Jury is still out. I wanted to love this place , especially since they were at the gf expo. The waitress was very knowledgeable and my food came out with allergy flags. However my dessert did not end it was stated this was all safe foodZ however 45 mins later I was very ill at home and all night. I did call the next day and the managers are looking into heat ingredients in the flourless cake is not safe as I definitely was glutened.

Went here before a concert. Talked to a manager David via phone beforehand. Asked about the farro in one of the GF salads - he said if you tell your server you have CD, they know to remove the farro. Their menu is labeled for things that are GF and also things that can be accommodated to be GF. Multiple GF fryers! Pizzas! Normally I strongly dislike chains but I’ll be back!

I can see why there are mixed reviews on here. Went here Sunday during a busy brunch and ordered off the menu. Everything they fry is rice or corn flour so it’s all safe the manager assured us. My husbands burger came out on a regular bun and the waitress said “my bad” like it was no big deal. The manager and other waiter apologized profusely and neither of us felt sick after. Definitely go here, but be sure to overly mention the seriousness of gluten free.

The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free. In fact the waitress alerted the kitchen as soon as I told her I was celiac. Gluten free items were marked on the regular menu. I had the most delicious chicken tenders and fries. And I did not get sick.

This used to be my go-to place but not anymore. I ordered to-go and was very clear about my order being gluten free. I got home with my meal and they gave me a regular bun for my burger. I called up, explained I have celiac disease and then explained the problem. The person on the phone asked me if I was sure- to which I replied that there is a distinct visual difference in GF and regular buns. I asked to speak to a manager who asked me to describe the bun and he confirmed that it contained gluten. He was very apologetic and did refund my meal, but I told him that I now no longer feel safe eating there.

They brought my son a grilled cheese on gluten bread, even though I asked the waitress literally 5 times to make sure that it was GF. I even asked again after she brought it out as it didn’t seem like GF bread and she said it was. I asked a manager and it wasn’t - it was regular bread. Unfortunately my son had already eaten half of it. The waitress was also extremely rude and had major attitude, on top of being totally incompetent (I think her name was Maritza). The waitress also told me that the chicken tenders did not have dairy (the other allergy my other GF kid has), but when I asked her to confirm it turns out they are cooked in buttermilk. Unbelievably horrible service. Avoid this place as they hire incompetent waitstaff who will put your health at risk.

Staff knowledgeable about Celiac disease and the GF options. Dedicates fryers for GF fried food, GF pasta and burger buns. I had the General Tso's Chicken, which I love but haven't been able to eat in 15+ years. It was delicious, and big enough portion that I took half home for lunch the next day. I recommend highly, and look forward to going back.

Highly recommend this restaurant- fantastic atmosphere, food and service. Our motivation to come here tonight was because of their extensive GF options. My daughter has celiac disease and they were able to provide safe gluten free options so readily and attentively. They have a separate fryer- She even enjoyed fried pickles for the first time ever! VERY SAFE RESTAURANT and enjoyed by us all! We are especially thankful to and for our waitress Victoria also- who served us with such warmth and ease. She really helped to make sure this was the best experience.

Took my grandkids out to dinner before a Bruins game. I was surprised at the number of gf offerings in the menu. I had a Japanese noodle dish; it was ok but contains an unidentifiable spice I don’t like ( perhaps cilantro). I ate all the veggies instead. The girls were delighted with their meals and ate every bite, which is unusual for them. Server was attentive & considerate of both my dietary needs and the kids’ excitement, which I appreciated as it was very busy. Would recommend.

Will definitely return!! Not the largest selection I’ve seen but definitely enough to choose from and totally worth it! Comes marked with an allergy “flag” so you know it was made with care. Staff was knowledgeable. Delicious food. Only downside for some times is that it was rather loud. Okay for this occasion but may not be on others.

Pizza. Crust was had in some places but I think I got a bad batch or something. Would give another try
Tater tots
Flourless chocolate cake.    O M G !!!!!!!!   Seriously sinful.
They recognize it as a “wheat allergy”.  This sign will be on your food.   So you know it’s gluten free.
Fish and Chips.  AMAZING!!!   Made to be gluten free. Ask for pickle sauce.   Tartar sauce isn’t gluten free
General Tso chicken.  Made gluten free.  AMAZEBALLS
