Updating my review bc service is much better lately. We order from here at least once a month. Kids love their burgers with GF buns, delicious fries and yummy milkshakes.

We used to go regularly but service has gone downhill in the past 12-18 months. No issues with the GF food and they do well labeling and making fresh fries.

My wife and I visited this weekend. She has gluten intolerance, not diagnosed with celiac. She ordered the mushroom burger, specifically labeled GF, and specifically asked for a gluten free bun. She woke up this morning with definite symptoms of eating gluten - very severe reaction.

08/2014 - This is a great new option for quick food in the area.

07/2015 - Update: from 5 stars to 3

I've been coming here for a year now. I've never gotten sick here. That said, they must have changed their burger recipe fairly recently -- they are INCREDIBLY salty to the point where we've stopped frequenting it.

The GF milk shakes are wonderful!! The buns are lighter than I've come to expect with GF buns and crumble, and today the toppings were surprisingly sparse. Still, it was another good meal

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.

I have eaten here twice. The first time I only had a burger on lettuce cups and was fine. The second time I had the same burger on a gf bun with the gf sweet potato fries. About 1 hour later symptoms started to flair. Might be best to steer clear of the fries if you are celiac.

I ordered a GF burger. I loved that I could customize the bread, cheese, meat, and all toppings. They have a dedicated menu so your order is listed with a “GF” before the menu item. The food came in a separate bag. The service was fantastic. Very kind and patient with us. No symptoms after eating there. Delicious food. Not a healthy restaurant but delicious and accommodating

Lots of options. The entire menu is completely customizable. I even could order the meat without seasoning. Not just a great option for gluten free or celiac

The customer service was chock fil a standards. Super nice, helpful and patient. Grateful for them.

Read the mixed reviews here but went to check it out because there were few options otherwise. I walked up and asked who could I talk to about food allergens and they went and got Calvin (Supervisor) I explained that I was celiac and needed “real” gluten free and if it wasn’t then I would pass. I asked them about the fryer and he said they cook chicken tenders in it and thus it is not gluten free. So I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and a drink. The burger was good and I had no issues. After my burger came out Calvin came to my table and said he was baking me some fries. He personally brought them out about 10 minutes later. They were good. My wife commented that she thought they were better than her fried fries.

Overall, excellent experience. Just be clear about your needs and ask accordingly and they will take care of you.

First time here, although it is in my neighborhood. Will definitely not be the last. My Burger on GF bun was delicious. The server brought out mine and my partner’s (not GF) separately so as to avoid confusion. Their grill is strictly sectioned for gf burgers and the fries were marked Gluten Free, which they explained were done in the dedicated gf fryer.

All around impressive experience with a very knowledgeable staff that explained the dedicated gf part of the kitchen to prevent cross contamination.

While we are both devoted carnivores, there were also vegetarian options, so there is something for everyone.

I asked for a gluten free burger. She said, "we don't have gluten free burgers, only gluten free buns." I tried to ask her why, was it cross contamination, or what? It is on their menu. Why would you have a gluten free bun with nothing to put on it? She just kept barking, "we don't have gluten free burgers, only gluten free buns!" So I walked away.

Staff was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free and what constitutes gluten free. I asked if the fries were fried in their own fryer and the server seemed surprised I would even ask. Was told “well they aren’t gluten free if they aren’t in their own fryer”. Yes!! They have a dedicated fryer for all gluten free orders. Order came out with a sticker indicating it to be gluten free. Bun was great! It didn’t fall apart at all. Will definitely be going back!!

So tasty, so safe - a real treat. Their GF safety process seems to be spot on. The GF condiments and menu items clearly labelled too (see photos) and its a pleasure to have GF Fries and a choice of tasty burgers including some of their signature flavours rather than being stuck with a plain cheeseburger. The milkshakes are a dessert in themselves and are a welcome safe treat 🎉 Service great and toilets and restaurant spotless too.
