Some Loops have gluten-free buns, but...
A representative of The Loop confirmed that the restaurant chain does have gluten-free buns available for burgers at three of its locations.
However, it's not all good news. The restaurants do not have separate preparation areas for gluten-free food, so it seems that there is a big risk of contamination.
Cathy Manzon, director of marketing at The Loop Restaurant Group Inc. said gluten-free buns are available for burgers and other grilled sandwiches at its restaurants in Neptune Beach, Amelia Island and Orange Park. Those restaurants also have gluten-free pizza crusts available.
But I'm not sure if I want to try them out, given the high possibility of cross-contamination.
Another drawback is that these restaurants don't have gluten-free french fries.
I think I'm still pinning my hopes for a GF burger and fries at the new Epik Burger restaurant.
