Outstanding. Certified GF and really know how serious food sensitivities (celiac and others) are. Dedicated fryers and prep areas, extensive GF menu. Crisp, light fried calamari : ) I will be back.
Probably best GF menu around - make nice bread and serve on different shaped plates for any allergy- take it very serious and everything is delicious!! My #1 go to place
Great options including rolls and fried food!
SO many options. Everything tasted great and was satisfying- it didn't feel like I was eating GF.
lots of great gf options
Best GF restaurant on east coast! Chef can tailor almost any meal to GF. They serve GF bread, GF blue cheese, GF deep fryer (aka not cross-contaminated), all of which are great examples of a restaurant that understands gluten allergy customers. Seriously, I've been to dozens of GF friendly restaurants in Boston, NYC, and DC and this is my favorite. A guaranteed top 3 for anyone with celiacs.
Burtons Grill is the safest place to dine in Charlottesville for people who have Celiac Disease. The staff prepares food in a separate kitchen, uses dedicated fryers, and serves gluten-sensitive food on square plates. (All other food is served on round plates.) The menu is extensive and the service is always pleasant.
First thing the hostess asked, after how many people in our party, was if anyone had a gluten allergy or sensitivity. This started out our dining experience on the right foot! They have a full separate GF menu with appetizers, soups and main courses. Not just a couple choices! The server also asked first thing too about allergies. We ordered the GF calamari as an appetizer ...EXCELLENT! Highly recommend ordering! My main course was the breaded fish sandwich with fries, this was a messy sandwich and needed a little extra tarter, but it was great. The kids menu choices were a little pricey for what was provided. We arrived for our meal about 20 minutes before closing (since we had to find a gf place, of course). They were extremely accommodating and didn't give the impression that we were a hindrance which we knew we were. All of the staff was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant!
I have celiac and have never had a problem dining here. The staff is incredibly kind and friendly and are very conscious of allergies, with the kitchen never failing to serve a delicious meal that is also safe to eat. My recommendation however is to stay very alert, if you are brought your order on a circle plate instead of a square, then there was a mix up and you should alert the server to it. Overall 10/10 I'm a Burton's regular and always enjoy the night's that I choose to eat here.
Delicious food that we keep coming back to, but I have experienced cross contamination. It's best to eat here at slower times. I've only ever gotten sick at popular times. Considering the lack of celiac friendly dining in Charlottesville, this is a good choice for lunch or dinner.
I was skeptical going in, but it was a fantastic experience. They really know their food, and what's better: they know their allergies. Most of their food is inherently gluten free and they are hyper aware of gluten as an allergen. They present a gluten free menu that I assumed was the real menu, because it had most of the food on it. Burger was phenomenal, probably the best I've ever had. Gluten free bun and the highest quality beef you could ask for. Great atmosphere and good service. Gluten free beers on tap, as well as ciders. Will visit again tl;dr - Great food, large selection, good atmosphere, good service, will visit again
Definitely know their gf food. The food was good, not great. Their fries are in a dedicated fryer, but were a little burnt. Had lots of dessert options, and we had the berry cheesecake. It was good, just not a traditional cheesecake and overly sweet. Overpriced as well.
had chicken sanbwich. The chicken was tough and dry. The sandwhich was flavorless and the fries were soggy.
The hostess asked about allergy issues right off the bat and let us know the whole kids' menu can be ordered gluten free. My picky daughter loved her chicken tenders and our food was great too. The staff was very aware. This is a great option for people with celiac and we will definitely be back often.
Great gf menu with many choices. They even make a gluten & dairy free risotto! My wife is very sensitive....we ate here twice with no issues. You will love this place!
amazing place. they cater to all allergies and are very knowledgeable.
Went there for graduation dinner. Awesome menu and very knowledgeable about celiac disease and how to handle food. First time I have eaten out without fear in a long time. Will be back.
This place knows how to do gluten free. The servers and Managers are very attentive and they have a great gluten free menu. The bread and herb butter is delicious. The calamari is so good. I enjoy getting the hamburger with fries and onion rings but other meals are also good as are the deserts. They also host gluten free dinners which are great. I just wish this restaurant was closer to my house but it is worth the drive.
I have had the exact same experience as everyone else. Very GF conscious and educated staff, great GF bread, the best GF pasta I have ever had. I had to ask the waitress if it was really GF, it was so good. She explained about the square plates meaning a GF meal. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!! Love, love, love this place!!!
black bean burger was delicious. the restaurant is gluten free by default for all of their offerings. if you want pasta or bread they have gluten free options also
Such a huge GF menu I didn't know what to choose. Onion straws! Everything was delicious. I will be back and seeking other locations.
Have been here twice in the last month. This is my new favorite restaurant! Food and service was outstanding (thanks Cheryl!). Menu has large variety of food and is served by the manager on different shaped plates from the rest of my party. This easily keeps my food separate. It is so wonderful to have a good meal and to know I am not going to get sick.
Dedicated fryer, gluten free chicken fingers and fries, amazing dinner rolls, very knowledgable on Celiac. My son has an egg and tree nut allergy and they made him special egg free chicken tenders! What a treat! This place is beyond allergy friendly!
As others have said, the hostess asked if anyone in party had gluten allergies, didn't have to ask for g-free menu ourselves. Went for lunch after my wife had outpatient procedure since I took the day off. Seated right away, and a server who wasn't even ours, just assisting came over and explained the way g-free works at Burtons. Special square plates and told if it comes out on a plate not square don't eat it. They had calimari!! With cherry peppers!! Cooked perfectly!! Hadn't had that in over 5 yrs. also had max burger with fries cooked in special fryolater for g-free. Waitress and staff very attentive, wonderful meal. Will return soon.
It was good, but was disappointed after eating at a Burtons last year on our trip. Waitress said they changed the menu. Didn't seem to be as many GF options as before. No stuffed zucchini on the new menu. Had chicken artichoke Risoto and it was good.
Excellent!! Very knowledgeable about gluten and all kinds of allergies. We need more restaurants like this!!! And....delicious food!
Great food, service and menu!
The food here was great! They have an extensive gluten free menu and anything you order from that menu is brought out on a different shaped plate than the regular menu items, which was nice for peace of mind. They were very knowledgeable about cross-contamination and I did not have any problems. The chicken risotto was delicious and can't forget the chocolate cake for dessert! It was one of the best gluten free desserts I've ever had.
Burton's is great! They have a comprehensive gluten sensitive menu with a lot of great options plus many of the failure specials are made gluten sensitive friendly. They also have an excellent kids menu with lots of fruit and veggie choices for sides. They are a "from scratch"kitchen and are able to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Staff is excellent too!
Staff is knowledgeable and they have a dedicated menu for gf (which surprisingly is almost the same as the regular menu). Lots of options and food is delicious. They take the allergy very seriously: a manger delivers all gf food and they are served on different shaped plates.
