    Was nervous when I got my burger because the bun didn't look or taste gluten free, but it was! Was my favorite place before celiacs and I'm so happy I can continue going with no issues

    This is my go to celiac safe burger place in the area. Their gluten free buns are pretty decent and don't crumble in your hands, their fries are good and cooked in a dedicated fryer, and they even have gluten free milkshakes. They take cross contamination into account when cooking and prepping their food, and I have never gotten sick after eating there.

    I went here with my mom, dad and sister a few weeks ago and we all loved it. The food was really good, great buns, great fries. I also got a vanilla milkshake and there was a lot of cinnamon in it but it wasn't advertised as that so if you're planning on getting a milkshake just know there's a fair amount of cinnamon in it.

    Dedicated gluten free space. Everything came out with a gluten free sticker, too. Have been twice and did not get sick either time. The food here was delicious. I was so happy to order a hamburger that had a bun, and a bun that tasted like a regular bun at that. The burgers were just the right size (not gigantic like some places), and the milkshakes were made to order from fresh ingredients. Sorey Five Guys, but this is my new go to place when in Albany!

    I stopped here on my drive from Buffalo to Boston. After terrible luck with food in WNY, this was a very welcome stop. They have a separate menu with quite a few options. I sat at the milkshake bar, and the woman behind the counter explained that there was a completely separate GF area of the kitchen (or perhaps a separate kitchen all together), and her decision to work there stemmed from the fact that she had gluten sensitivity and other food allergies and felt safe at work. I got a plain burger and sweet potato fries, and they were absolutely delicious! I wish I'd had room to try one of their GF milkshakes, because the options looked wonderful! There are multiple Burger21 locations, but none in cities that I frequent. Come to Boston!

    Very good fast casual burger place. We went yesterday while visiting Albany from NYC. We had read the good reviews on this app and are so glad they we true! Nice place, separate prep area for GF food and they clearly marked our children's GF food and brought it to our table separately. We had no issues afterwards (and our one daughter is extremely sensitive). It was nice to be able to order GF fries and shakes. Their condiments were also clearly labeled as GF (or not). We will be back next time we visit the Albany area.

    Loved my gluten free pizza burger and sweet potato fries. I am in the introductory phase of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). I have only been to two restaurants in four months. Three hours later and I feel good. I usually have symptoms by now. Good sign that there was no contamination. So glad because the burger was very yummy. I don't think the beef was grass fed, but worth the opportunity to eat out.

    The gf buns were so much better than ones we've had at other local burger places, the option to choose between regular and sweet potato fries was a welcome change from the usual, and all the condiments were very clearly labelled as to whether they were gf as well. The bananas foster milkshake is a new favorite!! Even my almost 4 yr old picky eater enjoyed his food. Highly recommend!

    They offer a handful of burgers that can be made gf, with gf bun or lettuce wrap. I got the shroom & my son got the burger 101. The gf bun was pretty good, but the burger itself was dry. Not as good as Big Orange or Izzy's. The shoestring fries were mediocre. But always excited to find gf options!

    I'm pretty happy with this place, yummy fries, fast friendly service, gluten free options clearly marked on the menu. Good tasting, sturdy GF bun. I found the prices to be reasonable in comparison to other burger bars with GF options. Celiac friendly, I had no negative reaction to the fries or the burger. They even mark their GF stuff with cute little stickers that say Gluten Free on them. I'd definitely eat here again, and bring my celiac & non celiac friends along.

    Do not go here. Very dangerous. Had to get our money back. They contaminated our food and put our health at risk in a very serious way. Allergic to tomato and they still put it on the burger. Seeds everywhere. They do not listen to the order you give them especially when they are busy. And they weren't even that busy. If you have any food allergies avoid this place like the plague. No good!!!

    Got a gluten free cheeseburger with bacon and half/half regular and sweet potato fries to go. $32 worth of food between me and my bf. We got the food to go and even after continuing to cook in the box for the half hour drive home, my burger was inedible due to it not being cooked. I ended up cooking it through the rest in my own oven and was able to eat it. My bfs burger was not much more cooked but he ate it anyway. He was sick all last night and I've been sick all day today. I had to call to get a full refund from this awful place. I will never eat there again.

    I eat here often and I've never gotten sick, so I give it a 5 star. My family loves the fries. They are better if you ask them to make them crispy... order them GF because they have a dedicated fryer. They always bring the GF order separated from the rest of the orders in my party. The bun is good, burgers are juicy. If you order a shake, make sure you ask for GF since they make other shakes with gluten ingredients.

    Burgers are pretty good. Nice to find a place that has GF sweet potato fries, that is rare. I only wished their fries were more substantial, they are super skinny shoestring fries. If you order burger without bun pay attention to what they charge, they tried to charge us extra for GF bun even though we didn't ask for them.

    I was very impressed with Burger 21. They brought my food out first and it was labeled GF. When the server brought out everyone else's food, she was careful not to reach across me to hand my daughter her gluten filled food. She instead handed it to my husband, who was sitting across from me, to pass to my daughter. I also had a milkshake because they had separate equipment that was clearly labeled GF to make my shake. They were very thorough and seemed to have a really good understanding about how to take seriously someone who is GF.

    Burgers and fries are good - haven't had any problems with them.
