Really good food. I didn't have any issues with cross contamination. The waitress made me feel very comfortable eating there. One of the owners has celiac disease.
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.
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.
had chicken sanbwich. The chicken was tough and dry. The sandwhich was flavorless and the fries were soggy.
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!
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.
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.
Excellent!! Very knowledgeable about gluten and all kinds of allergies. We need more restaurants like this!!! And....delicious food!
Great food, service and menu!
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!
Easily the BEST GF restaurant within 100 miles. My wife and I are frequent fliers here and they are always on point. Very warm, caring, and considerate staff. We go here all the time.
Boyfriend had swordfish risotto and I had a steak sandwich. Meal was good but the dessert is where it's at!! We had the chocolate torte with raspberry sauce and ice cream and also the pecan praline tart (?) which was warmed and deliciously smothered in caramel, served with ice cream. We would go back for the dessert alone!
The only place that has ever asked if we had allergen issues when we walked in the door. They make it their business to take good care of those sensitive to gluten as well as other allergens. They have a great gluten free menu with lots of options. This may be the best gluten free restaurant ever.
love burtons. the gluten free fish and chips gets an A+.
I love this place. It has so many choices for Gluten Sensitive people. They really take care of you here.
Amazing service and fantastic food! My husband has celiacs (corn and gluten) and I have issues with onions and garlic. They worked around all of it! So amazing!
atmosphere, great food and didn't get sick! what more can you ask for? answer to a Celiac's prayer! wish we had this place at home!!!!
Amazing! My husband had the Steak Fritas and I had the market catch risotto. they were both very good. the menu had 20+ gluten free options. When we sat down we were asked if we had any allergies. I felt very safe eating here.
Totally wonderful! the GF menu is large and everything at our table was great. I had a view of the kitchen and saw a chef remove a plate that had just been put up for service. He called another chef over and the dish was reworked. I was impressed by that. All GF meals are served on square plates so not a problem identifying your order from a nonGF at your table. This is a GEM.
Everything here is gf or can be made gf. By far the best gf restaurant around.
I had a great experience at Burton's. The owner of the chain has celiac disease and one of the other executives has a shrimp allergy. They are well versed in cross-contact and will answer any of your questions, so you can decide if you feel comfortable eating there. The restaurant also has a dedicated fryer. The french fries were one of my favorite parts of the meal! At the table next to us, we overheard the ladies surprised to find out that their dessert (using GF flours and all) was gluten free. While there is gluten in the kitchen, they do prepare many menu items that would naturally have gluten without it, so there are many options for those with celiac disease. I would definitely dine here again. Full Review: http://gflife247.com/2014/11/28/burtons-grill/
The best in the world must have again !!!
Outstanding for gf and other allergies. They told me the founder was a Celiac and he developed the restaurant around allergies. Dedicated fryers, breading. Food was so good we made it a point to visit twice. Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing! Right off the waitress asked our table about any food intolerances, and upon telling her my gluten intolerance she went and got a modified gluten-sfree menu that was very helpful with knowing what I could get (no guessing what was and was not gluten free, which was nice, especially since I'm somewhat new at this). Also, my dish was incredible with sophisticated but delicious flavors. Definitely recommend to anyone with a food intolerance that want truly remarkable food and a great experience!
Loved Burtons Grill. Visited with family on July 5th, food was awesome, wait staff very knowledgeable of gluten free and helping me choose my meal. Very surprised to learn two in our group ( who do not require gluten free) but their meals were gluten free so I could taste the meals. The two family members had no complaints with their meals. Great experience, would recommend to others and have via Facebook.
This Celiac approves!!! Fabulous GLUTEN FREE food handled properly. Large selection. Knowledgeable staff. I even got a gluten free roll before my meal. I cannot tell you the last time I had a roll in a restaurant!
Fantastic gluten free calamari. Nice selection of menu items.
By far, the best restaurant I have been to since going gluten free. This restaurant has a thorough understanding of gluten free foods and cross contamination. The establishment is nice and looks upscale, but we were wearing jeans and nice sweatshirts and were still treated very well. If you are gluten free this restaurant is a must! We will be back!
Great food they get Celiacs needs!
Fabulous food! Gluten free is not only cooked in a different area, but also served on different plates by management only. This is by far the most allergy- aware restaurant we have ever encountered.
I'll give then another try because the gluten free menu was impressive the one time we ate there, but they clearly don't want your business if you 1) don't have a reservation and 2) aren't dressed to impress the 17-year-olds at the hostess station. Promising, if you don't mind attitude. 6/25 service was much better. Impressive knowledge & accommodation for GF & other allergies. I do find them to be overpriced ($15 for a burger!?!) but the attitude isn't as pronounced. Totally safe and solid dining, but don't be misled by the name if you're expecting casual dining...the prices & attire indicate finer dining than the admittedly GF sensitive menu offers.
Have a huge gluten-free menu and dedicated gluten free area of the kitchen! Meals are also served on different shaped plates than gluteny meals.
Wow! Our family of 6 received amazing service and this is some of the best gf food we've ever had! Great variety and warm gf rolls to the table. So very good!
Burtons is hands down the best place in the area for Gluten Free Food. Not only do they have a separate menu (with 95% of the items on the regular menu), they have a separate frylator, square plates only for GF, circle for normal, manager delivers food separately, delicious warm rolls, and great steak, seafood, etc... LOVE LOVE LOVE
Good food, great service, very knowledgeable & conscious of us Celiac's, loved their cheesecake & ancinni but only negative & it was a big one with my wife; it's a very noisy/loud dining room area, you to scream to talk to your partner, it's bad but...Food & service was good!
Words cannot describe how wonderful Burtons is about GF food. They have a great, varied GF menu, and they are incredibly diligent about getting it right. Servers won't even carry a GF dish at the same time as a non-GF dish! Burtons can even do most of its kids' menu GF. We have eaten there dozens of times and NEVER had an issue.
I've eaten at Burton's many times- the Mt Pleasant location as well as one in Massachusetts. Many gluten free options and I never worry about cross contamination here. They serve gluten free food on a different shape plate than gluten containing items; easy to spot the difference if you look. The food itself is solid- my favorite item on the whole menu is the fried calamari and hot pepper appetizer. It's hard to find fried gluten free food so I like to indulge on the rare occasion I happen upon any..... I've eaten lots of the entrees as well but would choose the calamari and a side salad over anything else. I like Burton's for my two celiac kids as well- their children's menu is called "B Choosey" and is all about giving young diners ample meal customization. Portions are very large and my kids get a kick out of being able to eat virtually anything on the menu- a true treat when dining out is often about what they "can't" eat.
GREAT knowledge of dietary needs! First thing the waiter asked when we sat down was if anyone had dietary allergies. Full gluten free menu full of great options. Not to mention, the food is delicious! As a Midwestern vacationer, I would highly recommend to all locals and tourists
HUGE gluten free menu! The first time I went I was debating between 4 options because everything looked so good. I even got an extra side. The buffalo chicken dip is delicious and not super hot, I get it every single time and for carry. The burgers are also delicious especially with bacon. So many sandwich options and the plates always look beautiful. At my location they have some device that they type in and it instantly sends back the orders so your food comes out really fast!!
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 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.
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.
amazing place. they cater to all allergies and are very knowledgeable.
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!!!
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.
