I have never had an issue with the fries or gluten free bun. My favorite chain to order from.

If you order at the kiosk you can select which allergies you have and it will tell you which things are safe. When you select that you have an allergy the manager comes out to speak with you about it and checks your order. The manager also followed up with me to make sure everything was correct!

I’ve gotten burgers here multiple times. Usually shake shack staff are great but in my experience the training has been not as consistent at this location so you may want to watch what they’re doing with your order at this one, or skip it entirely.

Shake shack can make a gluten free bun burger or lettuce wrap and take precautions for cross contamination, with a selection of which items have what allergy. At this location, they used a shared fryer so the employees let me know this and we refunded the fries I ordered.

I asked if their fries are GF. I was told “the fries are GF but they are cross-contaminated.” I clarified whether they meant they were cooked in a shared fryer, and was told yes, that’s the case. It seems probably important, then, to not describe your fries as GF.

Definitely got glutened from this location. They were super busy, so maybe they weren’t as careful with cross contamination. I haven’t had a problem with other locations, but this was the first time I’ve ordered from this location.

The employees here were not very educated on gluten free but thankfully the online allergen menu is helpful. the fries ARE NOT safe for celiacs. They do have gluten free buns and the bacon is gluten free. After telling the employee I have a gluten allergy and ordering my burger, I asked for a chocolate shake (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry are gf), she proceeded to tell me they’re out but said she has a black and white shake that was chocolate fudge and vanilla. and i said that sounded good…then when i was about to pay i was like “and the shake is gf right..?” and she’s like oh no it’s not do you want me to take it off?? 😵‍💫😵‍💫 this was post me ordering a gf bun and explaining i have a gluten allergy/celiac disease
