I love their chocolate milkshakes and am not opposed to eating a bunless burger with some ketchup and pickles on it, but does anyone have any info on whether any of their food is safe. Oh and also their fries. I think they are fried in dedicated fryers but not positive. I can e-mail the company but figured I would check here first.

I know they also serve onion rings, so I don't think they have dedicated fryers...

As long as the meat is 100% beef, you should be fine (assuming they don't put the buns on the grill) -- I would be careful about condomints also -- some fatburgers swipe the ladel into the condomints (mayo) and swipe it onto the bread and then place the ladle back in the mayo -- cross contamination...

i just saw this post and was wondering the same thing-- i went to fatburger when i was in vegas-- i had a bunless burger and fries there. about 15 minutes later i was violently ill and was sick the rest of the day, but i also questioned whether this was a gluten reaction (it was a "different" kind of sickness). So i know that wasnt helpful, but id be very interested in hearing if you find out, as i still dont know what made me sick!

Guess what folks? Fatburger now has a gluten free bun option for only an extra $1.25!!! I am so happy. Check it out. I went to the location in Bellevue, WA, I'm assuming all other locations offer the same.

Must be your local franchisee. I checked mine - he has one in the same building as my office and he doesn't do anything extra for true gluten-free - as far as CC goes.

I went to the downtown Redmond, WA Fat Burger today and watched them prepare food. I am not Gluten Free, but my wife is. As they were preparing my order, we watched them continuously feed buns into the toaster, without chaning their gloves. I believe their buns can get cross contaminated by the toaster, and the preparers gloves. I also believe they can get cross contaminated by the condiment knives. They fry their onion rings and fries in the same fryer as well. While their buns may be gluten free, cross contamination is a high possibility there.

    • His diabetes educator is not an expert in celiac. IMHO the lets wait 3 months is cruel and unneeded.  Ask his GP if he will give the 'formal' diagnosis if you put him on the diet and those numbers go down with retesting in a few months.  Or ask for an immediate referral to a GI doctor knowledgeable in celiac. With numbers like that there really is no doubt about his need for the diet.
    • You finally know what has been slowly and painfully killing you. Recovery will not be quick but it will come. You will find yourself running up the stairs in 6 months and will sit sobbing at the top for half an hour. It will be about 5 years and lots of PT before you will walk normally again but not long ago you remodeled the bathroom because you were told you would be in a wheelchair soon. The nightly agonizing hours in the bathroom will be replaced with a solid eight hours sleep now except when you accidentally get glutened. Those glutening will come farther and farther apart though as you get better at the lifestyle.  It seems like there is nothing you can eat right now but that will change as more folks are diagnosed and more foods become better labeled.  Your skin will heal and your hair will grow back. That early gray isn't going away but eventually you will prefer it to having to dye it every three weeks or so because it now grows faster than it has at any time in your life. You will have lots of times that you feel sorry for yourself but a quick trip to look at that tackle box full of meds you no longer need will be a comfort. You will have some residual damage even years later but nothing you can't handle. You will be able to work again and to go back and finish those degrees but you will go back to school too soon. Don't be too hard on yourself as a couple years after that you will have recovered enough to take and pass those classes. Your life isn't over with this diagnosis it is just going to be different. But it will be a better different without the pain and moodiness. Eventually your family will understand and stop the eyerolls because they will see you healing. It will be hard socially but your social life was always tough anyway.  The important thing is you will get your health back and that is more important than grabbing a quick meal at a take out joint. Hang in there.
    • I can understand doctors being cautious and wanting certainty before diagnosing a youngster with a lifelong condition that will limit their already limited dietary choices. Even so, his figures seem to make a very strong case and I wonder what their rationale is for waiting 3 months? That seems to be time that could be better spent getting him healthier on a gluten-free diet. I wonder if you can ask them what clinical advantages the delay will bring? Either it could speed the process along, or at least you'd get a better understanding of why they advocate a delay? 
    • He had the dpg igg as well. That came back at 50, normal is under 20.   It's the waiting that is hard and the reluctance of Drs to diagnose. His diabetes educator has already said they won't pay attention to those results for 3 months and then they'll test again. If they're still high they will look at the next steps. Gp seems a bit more ready to proceed now so hopefully he will get the referral sorted so we can have a definite answer before too long. 
    • You find a magic typewriter in an old musty box in the attic. It will allow you to write a message to yourself on the day that you found out you had celiac (or gluten sensitivity etc). You can include anything you've learned about yourself, handling celiac, good strategies for coping, how to deal with emotional issues, hostile reactions from friends and family, travel, work, dating. etc.  You may not include details of who won the World Series / next weeks lottery numbers etc as this would break the space time continuum and the typewriter will give you a nasty shock if you even try it, so just keep to the celiac insights.
