    Wow! That was the BEST cheeseburger I have eaten since 1997! I am amazed at what a difference the bun made! The burger was cooked the way I wanted, not pre-cooked. Burger 21 just made my Top 3 favorite restaurants! Thank you Monica, y'all do a great job!

    My wife and daughter have many allergies and dietary restrictions. This is the only place outside of Disney World that my wife feels comfortable eating out at. They are super careful, knowledgeable and use separate preparation areas.

    What a great find! I stumbled upon Burger 21 when I saw a Facebook post that they were donating 10% of their sales that day to the Charlotte Celiac Connection. I had an awesome Philly Burger, fries, and a peanut butter chocolate shake - all gluten free and so tasty. The bun was excellent; not small or crumbly, in fact it seemed like a normal bun! They get them from a local bakery. Needless to say, we went back a week later!

    Thank you, Burger 21, for coming to Charlotte! It's so amazing having such a reliable, safe place for celiacs to eat - and your food is good to boot! I eat here all the time. Only place in the whole city that I trust with a milkshake, too. They clean everything and get ingredients for it from a separate cabinet. Eat here - you won't be sorry!

    Okay I have not eaten here yet, but it sounds great. I called to clarify some things: Are the shakes gf? The answer I was given was YES, they can be made gf. Might want to ask more questions, but it sounds good. Secondly, it lists gf beer, but they mean cider - Angry Orchard. I wish they would carry my favorite beer - Red Bridge. The ciders don't really go with food.

    Very good fast casual burger place. We went yesterday while visiting Albany from NYC. We had read the good reviews on this app and are so glad they we true! Nice place, separate prep area for GF food and they clearly marked our children's GF food and brought it to our table separately. We had no issues afterwards (and our one daughter is extremely sensitive). It was nice to be able to order GF fries and shakes. Their condiments were also clearly labeled as GF (or not). We will be back next time we visit the Albany area.

    Staff was knowledgeable. I skipped the fries since I'm paranoid. I don't eat out much at all so this was a leap. Burger was good (not amazing but good), milkshake was delicious. Food was brought out separately and marked. They said they make the milkshake with a separate spindle to avoid cc. Good experience, didn't get sick.

    3 out of 4 in our family are celiac and we have never been contaminated. We eat here every two weeks and have been well taken care of (especially by Jack)! We love Burger 21! One tip that I was too shy to stick to when I was first diagnosed-- always ask for the manager if you need to order gluten free!! Employees often don't care because they are not individually responsible for the mistakes of the franchise. Managers are!!! Once my son was diagnosed with celiac as well, I got over my shyness for his health!

    So, I was really hopeful about this place after reading reviews. I don't know if my experience was bad because the cashier that took our order was clueless about celiac. I told her I was celiac and needed GF, then asked her if the fries are cooked in the same fryer basket with breaded food and she proceeded to show me the different size baskets that the fries come in (small, medium, large)... That should've been my first clue. The burger was extremely salty, greasy and undercooked. I woke up later that night hurling my guts up.. :-( I gave it 3 stars because they do have a lot of options that may be safe for a non-celiac.

    Loved my gluten free pizza burger and sweet potato fries. I am in the introductory phase of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). I have only been to two restaurants in four months. Three hours later and I feel good. I usually have symptoms by now. Good sign that there was no contamination. So glad because the burger was very yummy. I don't think the beef was grass fed, but worth the opportunity to eat out.

    This restaurant has a dedicated fryer, a condiment bar with "GF" label on many of the sauces, and a GF bun. I ordered a GF bun with cheese for my 6 year old daughter. They made it after many frustrated keystrokes at the cash register thingy, but they charged me for an adult burger...around $8 I think. The only vegetarian GF option is fries and ice cream.
