From the owner

Contemporary American restaurant known for premium food, extensive gluten-free menu in Westford & warm hospitality.

On safety—Burtons Grill takes many precautions in safely serving gluten-free guests. Hosts ask if anyone in the party needs a gluten-free menu before seating. Servers inquire about food allergies or dietary restrictions when greeting the table. Cooks wash their hands & change gloves before starting any allergy meal. Special sets of purple cutting boards, chef knives & utensils are set aside in the kitchen to prepare only gluten-free food & they are washed/sanitized in between every use. There are three separate fryers in the kitchen, two of which are always dedicated gluten free. Gluten does not touch the charbroiler. All gluten-free/allergy food is served on square plates to designate them as such & they are delivered to the table by a manager or certified allergy specialist.

This is my go to restaurant now. I’ve never had any issues, the food is always amazing and the staff is very friendly and attentive. You can get just about anything off the regular menu gluten free.

Burton's is one of our go-to's that we trust. We eat here about once every two months or so. I have never gotten sick and they are always careful with my order. A manager usually brings out my food on a square plate (the non allergy food comes out on round plates). I love their gluten free wings, crab crusted haddock, burgers, fish sandwich, salads, and the chocolate cake is to die for. The service is usually good as well - refilling drinks before they're empty; checking in often but not too often. We often go to Burton's for special occasions like birthdays with extended family as well. Overall a great dining experience!

I had an unpleasant experience at the Westford location. I had asked for my steak to be cooked medium And I received a rare one. I cut the steak in 3 pieces And enjoyed my sides waiting for the server to check back in. The manager Jennifer took my plate Back to the kitchen. Nothing really out of the ordinary up to this point. For my surprise she brought back the same 3 pieces of steak I had cut and touched with my fork while I was enjoying the sides. When I asked my server if they had the habit to repurpose food from clients table back on the grill, she said she was going to call the manager. I watched them talk for a while and my server came back to explain they have a separate oven where they ”heat up” the food that has been out at people‘s table. I told her I used to be a server at Burtons in Nashua and the protocol was always to throw the food out. I could tell she was uncomfortable and watched her once again go talk to her manager, who was too busy eating at a few tables away and didn’t make an effort to come back to our table. I know for a fact my saliva was on that steak she took and threw it in the oven. I can’t think of another word other than disgusting for the experience I had and what I learned today.

So happy to find this place with their GF options! Almost the whole menu is GF. They do offer a separate menu but it was only missing a handful of items that can not be prepared GF. They only have one fryer but they use it exclusively for GF items! I actually had pasta for the first time since my biopsy two months ago - so good!! The staff was very knowledgeable and confirmed with me along the way. Great experience.

My daughter has celiac and was recently glutened. I called the manager to let them know this occurred in order to understand how this might of happened. We ordered takeout entire order was gluten free we stated that my daughter is celiac. I have not received a call back from them not feeling confident about ordering again.

Very aware of cross contamination. A manager brought out each of my items (separately from my guest, who is not gluten free). Having gluten free bread and oil to dip was a nice touch. The food was delicious, the staff was sweet, and I didn't get sick. I'll definitely be back.

Had a great experience at Burton’s! They have an actual GF menu with meals other than salad on it. For an app my (non GF) family and I shared the buffalo chicken dip, and it was great. After apps they actually brought out GF focaccia with a pesto dipping oil. A delicious surprise! For my main meal I got the chicken carbonara which was also great and a good size portion. I took home about half.

The staff was great, and I could tell they took great care in ensuring my meal didn’t get cross-contaminated. Would definitely go back.

Burton’s offers excellent food & service. As their owner has celiac, almost all menu items can be made GF and easily DF as well. They have GF/DF bread, Udi’s buns, penne & sometimes spaghetti, as well as a dedicated GF fryer. If you haven’t been, I would highly recommend!

Foods great and our daughter with Celiac has eaten here many times without any issues. She is super sensitive so if she is exposed to even the smallest amounts of gluten she gets sick. This is a great choice for anyone with Celiac.

Here is a restaurant who knows how to truly do it right! They take allergies completely serious here- it's the first question they ask at the table. You're also asked at the host stand if you need a Gf menu. The options and food are amazing! I have also gotten takeout from here, which always comes in a separate bag, and separate containers with Gf labels on them. They also have amazing Gf bread. Burtons has become my new favorite restaurant for their amazing food and superb attention to detail.

Amazing!! The service from the hostess to our server, Peter, was A+, the GF options many and the atmosphere very nice for either an intimate or family style dinner. The manager brought over the GF faccocia with herbed olive oil himself. I had the fried risotto balls, pan seared scallops with risotto, creamed corn and bacon ( what can I say, I like risotto) and a not too rich molten chocolate cake with strawberry frozen yogurt. Provisimo! Wish one was closer to us!

amazing start to finish! They inquire when you arrive if anyone needs a gluten free or veggie menu (so you don't have to ask). The waiter noted that I had a GF menu and made a note to tell the chef. The manager brought my roll and food out separately. it was delicious and I felt really confident about it.

Oh my goodness- this place is my favorite and the place I feel most comfortable with when I eat out. When you arrive, say that you need gluten free and the knowledgeable staff will immediately help you and even bring you GF bread to munch on. The GF menu options are extensive, they have their own fryerlator for GF, and they bring you the GF stuff on a separate shaped plate. There are even several amazing dessert options. An executive with the company has Celiac or is GF, so the waitstaff and chefs are all well trained in cross contamination. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Very knowledgeable re celiac. Full gf menu with a large variety of choices. Truly the most enjoyable meal, with great flavors, helpful service and careful attention to ingredients and cross contamination. When a gf dessert had one ingredient not certified gf, the manager came out and told us, since they knew I have celiac, and offered a free fruit cup instead. Can't recommend it enough!

Lots of GF options. They served a small GF dinner roll. I ordered Spicy Calamari & a Haddock Sandwich. Both were good and did not taste salty like some calamari I've had at other places. We went during lunch and it was not too busy. We went back a week later to bring our 5 year old since they have good options for kids.

Chose this restaurant based on reviews here, but definitely ended up with cross contamination symptoms after eating the Harvest Bowl minus goat cheese. The hostess made a big deal over offering a gf menu, the waiter’s first question to the table was about food sensitivities, and yet. He seemed pretty flippant when I asked again for assurance my meal was gluten free when it was served. A person at the table who said she was gluten sensitive said she had no problem, but I cannot recommend for those with Celiac.

Ate here multiple times and had wonderful experiences! Not only are they amazing with gluten allergies, but they take other allergies (even my complicated garlic and tomato allergies) very seriously. Every server we had was so kind and well informed. Did takeout one night and had just as positive of an experience. Highly highly recommend!

This place is a GF dream come true. The waitress was so knowledgeable and explained that the owner and daughter have celiac and created Burton’s to cater to those with food allergies. The dedicated gluten free menu is a legit full size menu. Dedicated fryer. All GF dishes are served on square plates and presented as gluten free when brought to the table. I had the wings and the steak frites and both dishes were fantastic. So grateful for places like this that make it easy and effortless to feel like a “normal restaurant diner” again. Thank you Burtons!
