This is more of a fast food type restaurant. The young man taking my order was very sweet and knowledgeable about the gluten free options and alterations to menu items. He double checked that the aioli on my sandwich was GF. They have a dedicated fryer to GF fries and sweet potato fries (and the chicken tenders, I’m assuming). My boyfriend and I were sharing fries, and they made sure that I knew that the Thai Style ketchup that he ordered was NOT gluten free. They also put stickers on GF trays. We will definitely be back.

Super good. They were confident when telling me how they prepare the food. The bun actually tasted good. There were quite a few options. It was a great experience.

We've been ordering from here for about 4 years, and Burger21 has been very consistent in food quality and lack of adverse effects re: Celiac. We've tried a few of the different burgers available in gluten-free (GF), but mostly stick with the Bacon Cheesy on GF bun (good!) and GF fries. Whenever special comments are available on item(s) or the whole order when ordering online, I always note that there's a gluten "allergy" and to please try to avoid cross-contamination when preparing. Recommended. Edit: We do takeout/delivery 99% of the time. We've only dined in once.

We eat here regularly. My husband who is not GF loves this place too! They take great care to serve safe food. It’s great to have a bun, French fries and milkshake like a “normal” meal, not a bun that falls apart as soon as you bite into it as is the case with a lot of GF buns. Their salads look great but I always get burger & fries because they are the best around, not just for GF but everybody loves them!

I've been to Burger 21 twice, once a few weeks ago and before that, a few years ago. Both times were excellent experiences. Being able to get safe fries with a gluten free burger is huge for we celiacs!

Burger 21 is a casual place where you order at the counter and then they bring you your food. Highly recommended!

Mediocre at best. 3 stars for being gf, but the burger was not impressive, I asked for grilled onions and garlic aioli with no mushrooms, got a burger with mushrooms and honey mustard. With all the options in Charlotte, I won't be going back.

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!

Great burgers and fries, just be sure to specify that you need it gluten-free! I’ve eaten here multiple times and have not gotten sick. My husband (not celiac) also orders a gluten-free burger and insists it’s the best gluten-free burger he’s had.

Within half an hour of eating from this restaurant, I had a gluten reaction. I let the employee taking my order know that I have a gluten allergy and he seemed a bit nonchalant. I’m not sure if the issue was the “dedicated fryer” (which I was told they have) or another prep issue, but I would NOT recommend this place for someone who has celiac.
