I ordered a collard green wrapped burger with fries and I got sick. I specifically told the guy who took my order that I had a gluten and dairy allergy and to PLEASE make sure that they changed their gloves and the food was prepped on a clean surface. Something went wrong and I’ve been sick for 2 days. Sucks because I’ve eaten here a few time before without issues but it’s not worth the risk again. It’s clearly hit or miss
If you are craving over prices burgers and fries, this is the place for you! $98 for 4 burgers, 5 shakes and two baskets of fries. Sadly the Greek style lamb burger I ordered was dwarfed by the large gf tapioca bun. It was the size of a slider party on a regular bun. Really disappointed by the service, too. No one got glutened, which is the only mice thing I can say.
BEWARE!!! The last time I went here (April 2012) the waitress said that they don't actually keep the fryers separate anymore. The time before that I had a verrrry serious reaction and assumed carelessness in the kitchen led to cross-contamination, but I bet it was the fries.
gluten-free heaven! Fries are cooked in dedicated fryer (100% peanut oil). They offer GF tapioca bun which unfortunately was sold out today- but the lettuce wrap was delicious! I ordered a Canadian Burger- Swiss, Canadian bacon, turkey bacon, mushrooms, tomato & lettuce with ranch dressing (skip the onions not GF). Overall a great variety of options and a very happy camper here that hasn't had fries in a LONG time!
The food was great, and the person who took our order was very careful to inform the cooking staff that we had gluten allergies (and dairy allergies) in our order. They have a separate fryer for gf French fries, which is always a welcome surprise. They also had a bunch of special sauces which were GF. Nobody got sick. I would definitely go there again
Dedicated gluten-free fryer. The waitress was very helpful and attentive to making sure that our food was prepared free of our allergens. The burger was delicious, and the gluten-free bun was really tasty. Hard to say whether cross-contamination was an issue, as I was traveling and could have reacted to food I had gotten elsewhere. I have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. They do list on their menu that the kitchen is not celiac-friendly.
Due to positive reviews, I tried BareBurger. I am very sensitive to gluten, and the lovely hostess reassured me that they are very careful in the kitchen. Our waiter, David, was also quite convincing, and proved to be right. He is great. The food delicious. Best bun! Dedicated fryer for waffle fries not greasy.
Delicious, staff was very good and they seem to have safe kitchen practices. Had a cheeseburger on a good GF bun, fries were great, and flourless chocolate cake was a solid desert. No issues after, will go back anytime.
DELICIOUS burger AND FRIESSSSSS! They have a dedicated fryer and prep section for those with food allergies which is amazing. The menu is easy to navigate and clearly labeled. Wait staff is very knowledgeable which is great. The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 is bc of the price. I’m used to paying more for my gf/df foods but for once I’d like to not have to spend like $60 on 2 people. But I will absolutely be back
My 1st time eating out GF and was really missing a real burger w/roll and fries Bare burger in Astoria did not disappoint, waitress was helpful and knowledgeable Burger was tasty, a bit dry for me, the fries were heavenly. I recommend!
Visiting New York I was concerned about eating out. I am very severe Celiac. I have eaten there twice. And the burger and fries were perfect. Chicken strips we're safe but lots of batter. I recommend this one!
I have gotten sick here 2x. The first time my food was clearly cross contaminated and I got sick. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt and went back one more time for brunch. My eggs came out with regular bread. When I told the waiter they needed to make me a whole new dish because I had celiac he brought back another plate a little too quickly. I asked if it was new food and he said yes. I got sick anyhow and I suspect they did not actually change the food and just changed the bread which had already touched the eggs. Never again
I used to eat at bare burgers throughout the city on occasion when I was /really/ craving a burger. I then came to realize that maybe half the time I get mildly glutened. Pretty good but perhaps overpriced food... if you’re feeling lucky.
Dedicated fryer for sweet potato fries, delicious GF bun, many many options for food. I was extremely happy with my options, almost all toppings and all sauces are GF! The waiter was not the most friendly which made me a little concerned as the rest of the staff was amazing, it I did not get sick.
3 drinks, 1 big Fries, 1 bunless burger, 20% tip= $75.53. Delicious, but damn baby 😘
Is it celiac safe? Definitely. I would give it 5 stars just for that. But the burgers are just not that great. They’re tiny and dry and flavorless. I love the GF options but at the end of the day a Burger needs to be delicious. The fries are pretty good. Overall the menu is pretentious (real bacon never bored anyone, no thanks on the duck bacon) but I can always find something to eat.
Safe! I didn’t get sick after! had a beef burger on the GF bun and it was good. The bun is a little dense, but I'm not complaining considering it didn't fall apart and had good flavor! Compared to the other stuff that's out there, it was great! Fries, sauces and almost all sides are safe for GF too.
Sometimes gluten free but usually not. They will tell you that they'll try or that it will be gluten free but it probably won't be.
They seem to have a ton of options, but we’ve ordered burgers with gluten free buns from them twice and both times our Nima sensor found gluten.
Had the farmburger which is a mix of sweet potato, wild rice and kale wrapped in Swiss Chard. Fabulous. No reaction. Food-wise, all the taste of a burger without that beef hangover (feeling too full). Looking forward to going again!
Great experience and great food! The menu says their restaurant “is not suitable for those with celiac disease” - but I took my chances and was fine! Server was very good with communicating to the cooks I had celiac. The GF bun is delicious! French fries and sweet potato fries are done in their own fryer - so they are good to go! :)
New location, but excellent number of gluten free options and very positive allergy protocols policy, including changing gloves and use of dedicated fryers! Also an excellent selection of vegan milkshakes that are “free from,” as well as a chocolate flourless cake. My celiac baby and myself (also celiac) were very happy with our meals as well as my spouse and other two kids who are not!
i brought in from here on two separate occasions...my nima found gluten both times. the first time they were responsive & offered a gift card so i should give them a second chance. i never received it, but tried again. another fail. and no response. stay away.
Great gluten free options, great food. This was the first time my sister had ever had a milkshake (she was 16). Nice that they have gf fries too...I am so tired of not being able to get fries with my meals at most places. Definitely recommend!
This is the only place I’ve been that I feel comfortable having a burger and fries... It’s pricey but worth it when the craving strikes!
GF and vegan options. Great burgers and knowledgable staff, well worth the visit.
Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. I eat here on a semi regular basis and have never had a single issue. Plus the food is delicious. I really misses this type of good quality casual American food. Plus there is something for everyone, from celiac friendly vegan burgers to Celiac friendly super carnivore/paleo options. Thanks, Bare Burger staff. ❤️
Knowledgeable staff that was able to catch something that wasn’t gluten free; dedicated fryer; delicious gf bun and burger!! I ended up making my own burger to minimize cross contamination and it was incredible. Beef, aged cheddar, leaf lettuce, and tomato on a gf bun.
