One of the best gluten-free burgers we have run across. My wife has gluten tolerance issues among others and has been missing a good burger, with bun, and fries. We have been getting by with her getting a bunless burger from In-N-Out. The lettuce wrap drips grease and just does not give the same experience as having buns. Most places have bland or just bad gluten-free buns. This place delivered a great meal, burger and fries that taste like a good normal meal. This is a rare find and one my wife value greatly.
Separate gluten free menu. Separate fryer and preparation areas.
I absolutely LOVE this place! The food is amazing and they prepare GF menu items on separate surfaces. I've never had a reaction from eating there. It is a bit pricey there, but the quality of food and peace of mind that I won't have a gluten reaction is well worth the cost!
Knowledgeable staff and clear menu choices for the gluten intolerant. Quality of the buns better than the typical supermarket gluten-free brands.
Delicious safe food for a fair price... leave stuffed and happy every time
Everything is outstanding, but especially the dedicated frier fries. SO GOOD. decent GF bun and good awareness by the wait staff, too!
We have eaten here a few times. Food is excellent. They have a separate fryer to cook the french fries. Gluten free buns and my daughter and husband who have Celiac are fine after eating here.
They have a great veggie club and I sub for the GF bun! It's amazing with the sweet potato fries. One of my favorite spots in Walnut Creek for some GF lunch
they rely on manufacture's statements and Fda guidelines rather that what is safe. after lots of discussion and written instructions, the wait staff talked the kitchen through my order - which arrived with grill marks anyway. DO NOT get seasoning on your fries!!!! the manager was apologetic, and I appreciated it. still, I wouldn't eat at this chain ever again unless they went 100% dedicated facility. I was trying to be nice to an accommodating friend who found the place, and my table mates were pretty uncomfortable. I doubt I'll be eating out with them ever again.
The waiter here was amazing! They told me they would do mine in a separate saute pan so it never touched the grill! He understood celiac disease and food allergies! He stressed to the kitchen the importance of my order (I could overhear it). Could handle the dairy allergy as well. Bonus: Udi's Gluten Free Buns!
Fantastic fries and burgers
This place was awesome! The staff were extremely friendly and gave me a well laid out allergen menu, clearly identifying items containing gluten. I have not been able to have a gourmet burger WITH a bun in forever! The bun itself was very good too. Sometimes I find it very difficult to find gluten free bread products that don't make me sad... They have a separate fryer, so I was able to have french fries too, which were delicious! I will definitely come back. Only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because my burger with the gf bun an two add ons was $11.00. Other than the price --AMAZING!
Build a burger has option gluten free bun very easy and everyone liked it.
It's really great to go here if you are GF and others in your party are not. The fries are just great and it is so unusual to be able to have French fries in a restaurant that I almost go there just for that. You can have a bun, or not. Extensive selection of GF condiments and spreads. If only the milkshakes were GF it would be close to perfect for a GF burger place.
Enjoyed a great burger on a GF bun with fries cooked in a separate fryer. they have a great allergy menu which breaks down all food by a host of allergies. Really tasty, GF and more. Thanks The Counter.
Who even needs a roll? Just load on the toppings and get it in a bowl of fresh organic greens? Most spreads are gluten free. They have a guide to help you navigate through!
Dedicated fryer, gf rolls
Great tasting food! One option for a gf bun and it's typical and not soft and doughy, but they have a decent separate GF menu! Otherwise, get your meal as a salad bowl with all the fixings and toppings you can have. A big portion and filling. Not cheap, but food around here is anything but. However, I feel like it's worth it at this restaurant. This is not fast food. But they still are pretty quick. If you're a burger eater, or chicken tender fan (not GF), this is delicious food. Also, kitchen has a dedicated GF area so no chance of cross-contamination. Usually a very busy place. Regular and sweet potato fries are really yummy. Onion strings are to die for. Literally, if you're GF. But ate them once anyway knowing I'd be paying dearly later -.- !! Full bar. Kid friendly with kid-menu. Amazing shakes. Can't go wrong here. Mtn View location is a lot bigger than the Palo Alto one, with better seating areas and indoor temperature way more comfortable. Thumbs up!

Just perfect! 20 mins wait for fresh burgers and fries to the take out counter; worth it. Gate D33. Friendly service, en Français!
I have celiac and this location has burned me over and over again (I've had good luck at other locations) after I gave them way too many chances. The last time I will ever go here I got a burger with no bun and no fries. How in the **** do you screw that up? I don't know but I was instantly sick. Yes, I specified I have a severe allergy. Other locations have been good to me. This one always screws me. Stay the heck away. This place should NOT be marked as celiac friendly. Maybe they were once, but no longer.
Tasty burger. GF bun fell apart as expected, but hey, it's GF bread! I ended up using a fork with much gratitude for a change from "protein style." Use the GF menu to customize your burger. They list the sides which are safe. Burger was very good, fries were ok although others may like this style. Afterwards my villi were happy!
Found this place through this app and wandered in for carry out on a Friday night. Staff was friendly. We did the build your own burgers and picked gf buns and picked our toppings. I asked to confirm that they had a dedicated fryer because I'm celiac and they told me that they normally do, but one of their fryers was down so I shouldn't order the fries. As much as I wanted fries I'm always glad for honesty. I would rather not have them than be sick. We got milk shakes and headed out with our food. The burgers were really good and the buns were totally fine. I was so full that I didn't even miss the fries. I would definitely eat here again. It was expensive, but our burgers and milk shakes were both delicious.
They have a new updated gf menu. They have a separate fryer but sometimes they turn it off if it's late so call ahead and ask them to turn it on if you want to get fries. Tons of gf options. Probably the best gf burger in town. Very safe.
Delicious, absolutely wonderful burgers. They are pricey, but their burgers are large and you can pile them high with any and all toppings that you want. I like their first buns, just wish they didn't fall apart so much!
terminal 1 gate 3-10 fantastic burger especially after a VERY long day. short blonde at register not only knew what gluten free was but immediately had staff handling my food change gloves. did i mention they have 100% gf sweet potato AND regular fries?? $16 for airport burger salad with fries. only thing that could make it better would be gf buns
Casual burger place in the Gardens mall with an outdoor entrance. Super fresh menu of burgers, sandwiches, and salads, everything cooked to order. Tasty and very large GF bun option for the burgers. Separate GF menu and create your own burger form (ask for it) and dedicated fryer for the French fries. Full bar, friendly and knowledgeable staff, great experience.
Ate here two days in a row bc my teen loved it and service was so great. For GF use the build your own. It's pricey but not bad for NYC- and the burgers and gf fries (dedicated fryer for shoestring and sweet potato-yummy!) are great! Fast service, clean restrooms, convenient- please open one in Rhode Island! I loved the hippy salad- very filling even without chicken added. Thank you!!
Every time I come to NYC I stop at The Counter for a burger. They understand Celiac and cross contamination, and the food is amazing. Love the bison burger! And a dedicated fryer makes the fries safe for consumption. Can't say enough good things about The Counter!
Terrible! I have eaten at several other Counter locations with no problems, this one made me sick, obvious cross contamination issues at this location.
While you never know for sure what may have glutened you, I did not feel good the morning after eating food from here, and didnt eat anything else out of the ordinary. I have celiac, may be OK for gluten intolerance. It was a very delicious burger though.
Very good! Also, I did not get sick there from cross contamination.
I've eaten here a few times with no problem at all. The burgers are very good (turkey or regular) and the fries are safe, too. Unfortunately, their tater tots aren't for some reason...the wait staff wasn't too clear on why...hopefully they'll add more options to their gluten-free menu at some point!
Fun place! Great energy and great food.
Yes their GF burger buns are quite delicious, and their shoestring fries are fresh and GF safe as well. Ask for their GF custom order sheet because many of the sauces on the Regular order sheet are not GF. The staff is knowledgeable and careful if notified that a client has a medical GF issue.
It was crowded which seemed like bad news but they seated us right away. The tables are small and it's very noisy. The waitresses are nice and the food isn't bad. The only problem was my burger was not medium which I stressed and they forgot my lettuce. The menu choices are great, my husband has a gluten sensitivity and he thought his food was great although a GF bun is an extra $2. Their fries are okay but you should go for the make your own burger.
The food and service at The Counter were excellent. The first time I (a celiac) ate here, the manager came out to discuss gluten-free options with me and to show me the ingredients on some of the products used in preparing my meal, to ensure that everything was gluten-free. I wish more places did this. I was also assured that my food was prepared separately, and the wait staff asked if I suffered from a gluten allergy. I loved the fact that I was able to create my own burger/sandwich (I choose to be a vegetarian, so I couldn't have a patty), fries, AND a delicious milkshake for dessert. I definitely recommend this place!
One of my favorite places to eat on island and have never had a problem here with getting gluten free. I love their sweet potato fries and burger on a salad (no bun; though they do offer GF buns, I prefer without). I love their pesto on the burger too! Staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Lots to eat and it's all been delicious.
