Went here a few weeks ago when I moved into one of the apartments nearby. Burger was good, but just as a note they only have lettuce wraps as an option. Fries are gluten free but fried in olive oil, which isn't great for taste when actually frying foods. If in the area, it's a good option.

Grass-fed beef burgers offered as lettuce wraps. Great fries.

Staff great with Celiac knowledge! Burger was good, however, don’t waste the extra $2 for a gluten free bun. While it tasted ok, it fell apart immediately. Go for the lettuce wrap. All fries are done in dedicated fryer. They prepare gf on other side of kitchen and change gloves.

I went here for lunch with some friends because of the reviews I read, thinking that it was Celiac friendly. It wasn't. I got the chicken tenders and fries, and I got sick. All of my food was shoved into one bag with everyone else's. The food tasted great but was not safe for me to eat.

This place is great. The paleo burger is gluten free. Their fries and chicken tenders are gluten free too. The fried chicken tenders and the French fries are my favorite. I never get sick when eating here.

I had the Paleo Burger with fries. They have a dedicated fryer, so the fries were safe! Burger was juicy and delicious. I watched the line cook follow a different procedure to make my order, so I felt confident. Didn’t get sick. Definitely recommend.

Not clean; floor sticky with grease and dirt. That alone would have been enough for me to walk out if I wasn't there with a group.

Informed cashier that I have celiac disease and watched the kitchen (which is clearly visible from the counter) as they prepared it. They did prepare it on a separate counter than the rest of the stuff, and the two kitchen staff changed gloves often as they kept switching between preparation of multiple orders.

But one of the staff failed to change gloves between directly handling buns and assembling my order; their cross-contact mindfulness is sub-par. I will not return.

They did offer to change gloves, and said there was a dedicated fryer. We only ordered the gf options from the menu but still got some cross contamination. Good food but just looking at the facility we were questionable on their ability to provide gf and were proven right.

I have Celiac Disease so I am always hesitant about eating out. I am not a burger person, but my husband suggested it. I am REALLY not a burger person. I cannot wait to get my next burger from here. So fresh and tasty, I had the Paleo Burger. The meat had a great flavor. It was so good! I asked the staff to change gloves for me to be safe and they did, I did not have any negative reaction. I also had the plain fries. I will definitely be back!

No buns, but lettuce wrap is good with gluten free french fries. Menu has gluten free labels on relevant items.

I have celiac disease and have severe reactions to gluten contamination. I have eaten here twice and haven't been sick! They were very careful with my order each time. They even added "gluten allergy" to my receipt! I ordered fries to share with my non-gf mom and they ensured that the fries were placed in a separate bag with my burger so they wouldn't be contaminated by her burger. The only downside is that they don't have a gluten free bun, so the GF burger is served lettuce wrapped. However, the lettuce wrap is always well done. The lettuce is fresh and the contents are delicious. Additionally, the food is great, organic and fresh- with beef from grass-fed, free range cattle that is ground on-site. They also have vegetarian and paleo friendly options.

This was at the Wynnewood, PA location across from the train station. No GF buns. Burger came wrapped in lettuce surrounded by paper - what a mess! I’d have rather brought my own GF bun or order it in a bowl. Cashier did ask about”gluten allergy” after I tried ordering a GF bun and he said they don’t offer that option. Cook did appear to change gloves when handling the burger. Friers are only for fries. Very good but saltier than most.

Not a great first impression - told the person taking the order that my son has Celiac, and she responded “what’s that.” But, was able to eventually confirm that they have a separate area where they prepare the burgers with gluten free buns. They also claimed that the fries were prepared in the separate area, but I’m still not convinced. However, the only fried things I saw on the menu were fries, so probably ok in any event. Bareburger seems much more aware (and caring) about Celiac issues. I don’t think we would return to Elevation Burger.

When ordering, we informed staff that we *needed* gluten free due to my wife and son having Celiac disease. They seemed a little shaky on what was and wasn't GF but we talked them through the fact that even cross contamination would make us sick and they seemed to get it after that. Well, both my wife and son got sick that night after eating (supposedly gluten free) lettuce wrapped burgers. They had all the classic symptoms the next day as well. They were definitely glutened by Elevation Burger and we will not return.

The manager, Michael, took my order and instructed cooks to change gloves and made them aware of my allergy. He personally brought food out to me and made sure it was on a separate tray from the other non- gluten food. This was all on a busy Saturday night. I would definitely go again.

They've done a great job with the burger but ask that they not touch your fries with glutened gloves. And some shake ingredients contain gluten so ask them to clean the mixer before making your shake
