Mad Batter Gluten Free Menu

The following menu items have no gluten ingredients. We will do our best to avoid all possible cross contamination, but many of our items are cooked on the same grill and we do not have a gluten-free grill. Our Executive Chef has undertaken considerable research in providing gluten free options for our guests. In some instances however, we are reliant on products and ingredients purchased from external suppliers. While we try to ensure that these are gluten free, we cannot guarantee against unknown gluten content and assume no associated liability. Guests are encouraged to consider this information.
