Great experience. Their website goes indepth on the precautions they take. Very extensive gf menu options. When I told our server that I had celiacs he pulled out a dedicated order slip that's a different color and everything. He went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. The food came out extremely fast and I will definitely be going again.

Absolutely wonderful! This place is amazing! They take all allergies very seriously, and we were immediately assured that appropriate precautions were taken to avoid cross contamination. They have an extensive gluten free menu, and the fish sandwich was incredible! The bun was so soft and wonderful. Everything was delicious, including the GF cake! A must try and worth going out of the way for!

Possibly the most careful gf prep I've ever been to in 20 years of being gluten free. Servers required to take tests to be an allergy expert. Gf food prepared separately and come out on a different shaped plate. Food was excellent. The best sweet potato fries, cooked in dedicated fryer.

The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating for gluten free (and other allergies). Right when you come in, they ask if anyone needs a gluten free menu. The waiter told us that they take allergy prep very seriously, and someone else brought out my gluten free plate. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, so I was able to take some of my boyfriend’s fries! (We asked for them on a separate plate.) I had the orecchiette pasta. The pasta was a bit over cooked, but I loved the sauce and the stuffed zucchini. They have a lot of gf options! Even cocktails are listed on the gf menu!

My wife and kids are gluten-sensitive. We have been here at least a dozen times and always have a positive experience. They have a lot of tasty options on the GF menu...not simply a short list of naturally GF items like salads and such. If you haven't been here yet, you need to check it out!

By far my favorite restaurant. Very good for celiac and gluten free diners. Staff is highly educated and they have a very wide selection. Almost everything on the kids menu could be made gluten free and there were numerous options on the normal menu. They also offer gluten free dessert. A manager will also bring your gluten free food out to be sure everything was prepared properly. Aside from the gluten free part, the restarting is inviting and is located in a very nice location.

Update: Corporate reassured me that all was well.

I’ve been dining at Burtons for years. Love it. They are fantastic with allergies. Until now… This is an email I just sent to their corporate inbox. Awaiting response. Will update once I hear more.

The Problem: During my visit last week to the Burlington, MA location, I was informed — very professionally and kindly by both our waitress and the window manager — that the introduction of a new menu item (spring rolls) dramatically increases the chances of cross-contamination. These spring rolls, as I was informed, are now fried in a shared fryer with both the formerly gluten free chicken wings, tortilla chips, and onion rings — all items that are marked as gluten free on the menu. Your restaurants are now commingling gluten-containing and gluten-free foods in the same fryer, which is something your restaurants have been a leader in avoiding. You have set the standard for allergy precautions. Now, however, our order of chicken wings, Buffalo chicken dip, and a Maxx burger was now a tremendously risky order for someone with Celiac Disease. The staff did an excellent job notifying me of this and helping me to reorder a safer meal. I am hugely thankful for them.

The Requested Solution: This note is not to call for reprimand of the staff (quite to the contrary, given their excellent service), rather I’d encourage Burtons as a corporation to reestablish the excellent allergy handling protocols it has had for years — the protocols that make people like me comfortable and draw us to your business. Please work with your restaurants to have a dedicated fryer for containing gluten containing ingredients only. This would leave all other fryers safe for those with allergies.

Traveling can be so hard for those of us with celiac. Had dinner here while going through Charlotte. This place is amazing! Server was well trained on allergies and so many gf options! Had the fried fish sandwich with fries. So good I almost cried! Please please open a location up north (The football hall of fame in Canton Ohio would be a great location!).

Dang, this place is wonderful. While the menu changes by season, this current season had two total things that weren’t able to be made gluten free. They were key lime pie and croutons. Everything else on the menu was *easily* changed to gluten-free, just by switching out the kind of bread, the pasta, and so on. Since the gluten-free to regular items had such a small difference, my table got all gluten-free food, ordering risotto fritters, buffalo chicken dip, mac and cheese, their short rib grilled cheese, and spinach falafel, as well as an absolutely heavenly seven layer chocolate cake. Staff is super knowledgeable, and I was completely safe. Perfection.
