Restaurant Review: Hopdoddy Burger Bar

I love a good burger. There's nothing quite like a juicy burger with fries and cold refreshing drink. That makes me incredibly happy. Since going gluten free, it's been somewhat of a challenge to find a decent gluten free burger. One where there is actually a bun involved. While protein style is great and all, NOTHING beats a burger with a bun. A bun that doesn't crumble to pieces when I bite into it. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so, but apparently it is a tall order until I tried Hopdoddy. For this reason, they are my gluten free restaurant review of the week.

There are many reasons I love Hopdoddy, but the main reason is that they understand the importance of not cross contaminating food that needs to be gluten free. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and make the gluten free burgers in a dedicated space. Cross contamination be gone! So if you have Celiacs, gluten intolerance, or allergies, rest assured your food will be safe.

Onto the other things that I love about Hopdoddy... They have great drinks! I tried the Black Cherry Hard Limeade with a local gluten free vodka and it was so good, I wanted to chug it. But I didn't. They also have an assortment of beers (gluten free and cider available), wines and non-alcoholic beverages like shakes and sodas.
Hopdoddy uses as many local ingredients as possible to help out local communities which is another great thing about this place. They also feature local beers, wines and spirits. Yay for supporting local businesses!

I ended up having the Buffalo Bill burger on a gluten free bun with the Parmesan truffle fries. I'm not the biggest fan of mushrooms so I didn't appreciate the truffle aioli as much as their homemade ketchup. But I did go out of my comfort zone and try something new, so there's that. 😂 The burger, however, was amazing! The buffalo meat was cooked to my liking (medium rare) and the toppings were so tasty. It comes with bacon, blue cheese, Frank's hot sauce, Sassy sauce (that's where they got me), lettuce and tomato.
They had so many options for burgers it was hard to choose. I really did enjoy my choice and will definitely be coming back in the near future!
