One of my new (to me) favorite fast, cheap, and extremely delicious restaurants is Blue Moon Burgers. They have a thorough, easy to understand gluten free menu; I did not feel the lack of gluten at all.
Waiting. That’s New Grist Beer in the background.
Gluten-free onion rings.
Fries, made in a dedicated, gluten-free fryer.
The Blue Bayou. The blue cheese is pretty intense!
The gluten-free buns are really tasty. I mean, look at it!
The El Diablo Azul. You have to substitute fresh jalapenos for the jalapeno bottle caps for this to be gluten-free, in addition to the gluten-free bun. This one is pretty spicy (which, of course, I loved), so only order it if you are ready for some heat!
The person who helped us at the counter informed us that they use only one spatula for their Blue Moon Sauce, so we ordered our sauce on the side (they put uncontaminated sauce in containers for their gluten-free customers).
Really and truly, this place (we went to the Fremont location) was absolutely fantastic. The buns (From Jensen’s Bakery- nice work, guys!) were soft and chewy, the patties nice and lean and perfectly cooked, and the toppings were flavorful and fresh. The onion rings were perfect. Crispy and crunchy on the outside (I think they use crushed up Chex), and nicely cooked, sweet onions on the inside. The person at the counter who helped us was very knowledgeable about their gluten-free options, so I wasn’t worried at all about contamination. I will be making this a regular stop throughout the summer. Something about warmer weather just makes me crave all-american food, and this place does it right!
