    I've only tried two on that list, but definitely concur with Three Baker's. Everything I've tried from their line is 5 star. I have a trick with any gluten-free bun: spray both sides with cooking spray and lightly grill both sides just until golden and let cool. It makes them texture wise more like a wheat-based bun. I think the reason for this is that since gluten-free flours are "thirstier," as you bite into them they absorb more saliva, making them potentially have a drier texture and by doing this you prevent that by a light coating of cooking spray baked onto the surface. So, when you bite into it, it mitigates the potential for a dry mouth feel. At least that's what seems to be at work. I do this with all gluten-free buns including Three Baker's Hoagie Buns which are excellent as well (before making a gluten-free vegetarian hoagie) .
