First place I have found with a dedicated fryer since my diagnosis. I can't wait to try again.
This place is AWESOME! The manager Doug took the time explain all their gluten precautions, and even showed me their safety containers that they use in the kitchen. They even bring out gluten-free items separately to avoid cross-contamination. And besides their gluten-free excellence, the food is even more amazing! BTW they have much more than just a chicken salad for celiac options.
Burgers and fries were delicious! Had lots of GF choices. Workers were helpful.
3 out of 4 in our family are celiac and we have never been contaminated. We eat here every two weeks and have been well taken care of (especially by Jack)! We love Burger 21! One tip that I was too shy to stick to when I was first diagnosed-- always ask for the manager if you need to order gluten free!! Employees often don't care because they are not individually responsible for the mistakes of the franchise. Managers are!!! Once my son was diagnosed with celiac as well, I got over my shyness for his health!
By for the best cheeseburger and fries I have had. Never contaminated me, I'm always looking for a reason to drive to Tampa just for Burger 21! I can only hope they put one by my house.
I was assured my order was completely gluten free and would be safely handled. I got very sick after eating here.
My daughter and I, who both have celiac, have eaten here many times. Our food has always been good and have never gotten sick.
If you are on a lunch time frame - Do NOT order takeout and expect your meal to be ready on time, nor even 10 minutes past your scheduled pick up time. I placed an online order for a Noon pick up, I arrived at 12:10 and was told I needed to wait for my fries. Apparently they don't start to cook your fries until you show up. Four minutes later I'm still waiting on my fries. I had to ask for my burger and leave WITHOUT my fries. And the truly sad part, I had already paid for everything on line (even my non-existent fries). Will I be going back, as a first time customer, I can truthfully say - - - NO!!!!!
Gluten Free menu has many great options!
My daughter called it 'Burger Heaven'. Best Gluten free burgers we have ever had. Juicy with tons of flavor. The servers were knowledgeable and food was marked well. Milkshakes and floats were out of this world. Kids were excited to make their own floats. My daughter wanted 6 stars for the rating. Very happy GF family. Wish we had one closer to home.
Excellent GF burger/bun and GF sweet potato fries. My fries came out late and the server came out to apologize and said that someone had put a chicken burger in the same fryer as the fries and they had to empty the fryer and clean it out so they could make new fries for me. They have integrity!!
They actually really cared about me getting sick unlike many other restaurants.
I recommend burger 21 to everyone, especially those with allergens. Staff is exremely careful with cross contamination which is a huge problem I experience at other places claiming to be gluten free. The best part? Food tastes AMAZING! Please give them a try. You won't be disappointed.
Best Gf cheeseburger & fries in Tampa!!!! Thanks burger 21!
Great restaurant for a Celiac-friendly gluten free burger and fries! A cute atmosphere added to the pleasure of our dinner! Staff was knowledgeable, menu is clearly labeled, condiments (which you pour yourself) are labeled! There’s even a sink near the entrance just to wash your hands when you arrive!
So yummy. Burger 21 is a trusted gluten free spot. They are excellent with cross contamination and ensure celiac food is prepared properly. I was told they wont even carry out gluten / gluten free together to ensure no mistakes are made. Great staff too at this location.
Loved this place. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable and the menu had the many GF items clearly labeled. Our celiac daughter loved her burger. My mother is not celiac but avoids gluten, and she ordered the shrimp burger on a GF bun. The staff immediately notified her that the shrimp burger isn't GF, so good on them.
Good gluten free options. completely spectated kitchen for gluten free options
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!
Good burgers and gf bun is ok. What I love is that I can eat the fries. The various dipping sauces are great and well marked as far as gf. It’s a nice place and another good thing about it is that they have a place for you to wash your hands without having to go to the bathroom.
Had an amazing GF burger and fries for lunch! The burger was perfectly cooked and one would never know the bun was GF without the cute sticker on the parchment paper. The amazing shoestring fries - my favorite variety - were absolutely delicious. I was so excited to be able to eat some yummy fries without having to worry about getting sick later on from any cross contamination! Lots of beverage choices, had a cold glass of iced tea, but really want to try a shake next time.
First time here and majorly impressed. They have a dedicated fryer for their fries and a separate grilling area for the burgers I believe. They brought the gluten free food first then went back to get the gluten items to prevent contamination. I will definitely visit again.
Edit: Sadly my son was glutened the last time we ate here :( It was one of the worst experiences and took him many days to recover. I don't know what went wrong, only clue was they said the bun tasted like the real thing. I wonder if our gluten free request was not relayed to the cook. It was a busy weekend....Previous review: Celiac child had no issues whatsoever! The persons who take the order are knowledgeable about celiacs and the servers too! And the burgers are delicious, so are the sweet potato fries! If you have to drive a long ways to get here, assure you that it will be worth it!
Had an awesome GF menu and the staff was very aware of making sure the food was safe to eat. They have a separate fryer for GF fries and separate area to make Gf milkshakes and all the sauces are labeled GF and in a way to avoid cross contamination!
They have a dedicated fryer and space for gluten-free. Their food is delish. I will say that we have eaten there several times and on one occasion it seemed that it was taking a long time for our food to come out. That us when the manager came out and told us that there was a mishap with my meal (rest of family is not gluten-free) - he said that my burger received a regular bun and that they had to remake my burger. The honesty in the management team that was awesome - they could of just change the buns and I would of not been the wiser until later. And later I would have been in the hospital because I am pretty sensitive. B-21 from that day has my loyalty but I also tell them when making my food - it is not a diet for me but a true health situation. So I have not had any problems and we were told that one of the owners daughter's had celiac --- that was why the chain is so celiac friendly!
Their menu now states they can't guarantee gluten free, so I was wary about getting food there yesterday, but as a super sensitive Celiac, I didn't feel glutened. Great taste but pricey.
Awesome burgers, fries, and shakes! Staff is super comfortable with celiac needs and brings out gf food separately and clearly marked. Even the dipping sauces are marked as to whether or not they are gf. Super yummy comfort food, American style. My son loves this place!
Wow, what a great experience! They are very knowledgeable about gluten and the hospitality was above and beyond. The gluten-free Burger was delicious and they even have a designated fryer for French fries . And the whole restaurant is very clean. I wish all restaurants could be like this. It was so nice to get a gluten-free meal and not have to worry about a thing! I can't wait to go back.
The manager greeted us right away and explained the menu thoroughly. More GF choices than most restaurants. I was so happy to get a safe burger and fries that also tasted delicious! And the dipping sauce options are also great! Try ragin Cajun! So far so good for this celiac ;)
Excellent food! Very informed staff! Just tell them when you order that everything needs to be GF, it is marked on the receipt. And they do have GF milkshakes again. Some flavors are marked GF on the menu. They have a separate blender that is marked Gluten Free to prevent cross-contamination so no worry about whether it was cleaned well enough or not.
Wanted to love this place..really..however after eating lunch here i got glutened..3am hit me like a rock.. had a few signs that this might happen but was hungry and decided to eat anyway..my bad..1st sign was the waitress wasnt sure if the dish she was holding was my order..2nd was no soap in restroom or small outside sink ...wont be back which is a shame ..i really liked their milkshake.
Fantastic food, explicit GF on menu, great service - seriously, you should go here, it's a super-awesome restaurant!
The staff was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure there was no cross contamination! The owner came over and let us know they use a separate toaster, fryer, etc for gluten free food. On top of that, my food was brought out separately from the rest of our parties food. The OMG burger was delicious!
Right from the beginning I knew this was going to be good. Friendly greeting, helpful staff and nice atmosphere. Was blown away when my burger arrived. It was cooked perfectly and it was divine to have a great tasting gf bun. I will definitely return.
the staff were very knowledgeable, they have a dedicated fryer for fries. Food was absolutely delicious and completely fixed my craving for a good burger. I couldn't even tell that the bun was gluten free. Also! I got a vanilla milkshake and the person preparing it double checked before putting in cinnamon and sugar (which I omitted from my shake). Will absolutely go back over and over
Absolutely the best gluten-free buns and hamburger we have ever had. We ordered the Swiss mushroom onion burger, and the fries and sweet potato fries that were made in a dedicated fryer! I would recommend this place hands down hopefully we can find one back in Home in Virginia
just ordered here. i’m very upset. food not gluten free and i now have a very sore bottom. not just from all the diarrhea, but the wiping too. not only did i literally throw money into the toilet, but who is gonna reimburse me for all that toilet paper. hmmmm.... what a waste, didn’t even put ketchup on there even though i ordered it. burger 21, more like eat a burger and then wipe your bottom 21 times
Not a lot of GF options. Their fries aren’t and none of their non-beef burgers are either. I had to get grilled chicken strips and it only came for a few and no GF sides. Also most of their condiments are off limits. I was really disappointed since this was so highly rated on this app I thought for sure I’d be satisfied but I wasn’t.
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.
I eat every week and have never gotten sick. Excellent burgers and fries.
