I came here twice as a friend lives in the area. The first time the waiter seemed confused but I was fine. I thought the bun did not hold up well and it was nothing spectacular but it is a burger joint. I came here again as we needed a quick bite to eat later at night. First of all that time I had the hardest time ordering as the waiter could not tell me what I could eat and kept getting confused. He tried to tell me the fries were not GF as they were frozen and they did not know what the supplier did with them before they got there. Then when my food came out (someone else said to order the fries) I thought the bun was wrong. My waiter argued but I asked him to check. He said it was a regular bun, but not his fault as it was so dark in there he couldn't see my food. I got my "new" GF burger about 10 minutes later. I was afraid of the bun at that point even though it was the GF one so I just decided to eat the patty. I noticed it was very overdone, but then realized half way through, I think they just reheated the one that was on the regular bun! Sure enough a few hours later I was violently ill after only eating a few bites of food. I would not recommend this place to anyone who needs to avoid gluten.
This is the BEST place for a gluten free burger!!! Getting hungry just thinking about it :)
We had the most amazing burgers and fries at 5 Napkin! They have a dedicated fryer and my celiac son LOVED being able to order fries at a restaurant again. Food was amazing and staff we educated about celiac disease. They also have GF beer for the adults. Can't wait to go back next time I am in New York.
Best gf burger I have tasted. Wait staff all knew their stuff and there's a separate fryer for fries. It's only their burgers which are gf on the menu but I asked if they could do any of the beef burgers as a chicken burger and this was no issue! Are here 4 times in my 1 week trip
So good! They are able to make any of their burgers GF and are also able to make a couple other dishes gluten free. The staff was very knowledgable and was even attentive enough to let me know which dishes my family had ordered I could and could not sample. The GF bun was one of the best I've had and the burger was DELICIOUS as were the fries! Would definitely come back!
My family and I chose this place after reading an article on the Boston Visitors Guide website. It stated they had GF fries and chicken wings - not the case! The waitstaff were not very helpful or overly friendly! Only the beef burgers are guaranteed GF - they have GF buns (which were hard/dry) or lettuce wrap. No dedicated fryer. Unfortunately the burger was not even that great. Best part was coleslaw and guacamole!! Should've checked reviews here first.
Fantastic! Waitress was very knowledgable, she asked if it was preference or allergy, and suggested their expanded GF beer selection. They have 3 GF beers (and a handful of ciders!). Burgers are great and they had GF buns (even though they're not on the menu?).
Restaurant is a bit expensive (for everyone, not just those avoiding pesky glutens) but food is worth it. Burger's are flavorful, buns okay (typical crumbly bun). Dedicated gf fryer is a added bonus for those longing fries. That said, if Boston Burger Co would get its act together and offer gf buns and dedicated fryer, I probably wouldn't return here. Burger co is cheaper and has better burgers and options.
Good burger place. I wouldn't try to eat a whole burger with fries because of the grease - get a side salad. You have the ask the waiter to check what foods are gluten free. Some burgers like turkey are not gluten free. Would get more stars if separate gf menu and gf soy sauce for they sushi.
Best burger I've ever had. Amazing Gf rolls. Great separate gf fries. Didn't make me sick (and I'm very sensitive). They don't have a separate gf menu but wait staff was knowledgeable. Don't go here if your not looking for a burger because they don't offer much else other than very tastey burgers.
This place is amazing! They don't have a dedicated menu, but are very helpful and knowledgeable. They have a dedicated fryer and the fries are delicious! I was able to customize any.burger to make it exactly the way I wanted and had no problems afterward. Definitely eating here again! Highly recommended.
Turkey burger has bread crumbs. No gf chicken. If you don't eat meat, it's salad for you! Go to bare burger instead.
I would never go here normally, but their burger is seriously worth putting up with the packed chain. Great staff, french fries, and the buns are unique and addicting!
They have gf buns, but no gf menu. They also say they will use a separate fryer for gf fries. There is nothing that indicates that the fries were cooked separately when your plate comes out, so you have to have faith in the kitchen. It made me a little nervous.
So great! They have gf buns and a couple of gf burger options (not all though! So ask)....the waiter I had was so knowledgeable about which menu items were gf. They have gf dressings for the salad and you can have French fries cooked in a dedicated frier! Highly recommend!
Very good burgers. Best gluten free buns so far. If you like med-rare, be careful, on the rarer side because these burgers are very big & thick.
This was a delicious burger place! They have a fantastic gf bun that tastes yummy. Also, a dedicated fryer for their French fries. I was with seven other people who do not have gf issues and they all had fantastic meals.
When I went, they had just gotten an entirely brand new (regular) menu, so our waitress was still learning it. She was very helpful in finding out as much as she could about what was gluten-free and what wasn't, and really wanted to make sure I had a meal I would enjoy. It wouldnt be my first choice restraint, as I had limited options, but I would go back if my friends were eating there because I know I'd have great service and help finding GF meals.
So great & yummy! It is expensive, but you have never had such a juicy & perfect burger. The salmon 'burger' (actually salmon steaks, not ground) is to die for. Gluten free bun & fries are delish - you wouldn't know the difference! I highly recommend for a splurge.
I tried the 5 napkin gluten free bun the other night and was very happy. I'm celiac now 7 months and so far this was the best gf replacement I've had in a restaurant.
