Tasty hamburger and, of course, exciting to get to have fries! My stomach did start hurting while eating but nothing came of it…..so far. Fingers crossed. Update: I didn’t get sick so I’ll happily go back.

I ordered the Onion BBQ Burger and tater tots (yes, a restaurant that actually has gf tater tots!!!). The burger was delicious! The bun was soft and fluffy - almost reminded need me of a brand I buy for home). The caramelizarían on the onions was good; the bbq sauce was good although I wish there had been a little more. The tots were crispy on the outside soft in the middle - I wish the salt to tot ratio had been a little higher. My friend order the Gorgonzola Burger. It had onions and a really good sauce. She said the burger was cooked perfectly (as was mine) still pink & warm inside. It tasted fresh, delicious and she would go there again if she lived here. She got the fries - they were shoestring fries that were very basic -but she loves a chain sit down restaurant’s fries. Her order wasn’t gf. The burgers come wrapped in the coolest wrapper that has all options marked on them. I don’t live here but when I come to Boston, I will definitely come back! There’s a meal deal called the Students (or Businessman’s) Special: Burger, Fries and beer or wine for $10. There are also other bulk deals on the menu. A fresh burger is a great burger!

I don’t think the fryer is dedicated gluten free as some people report getting an onion ring in with fries. I don’t like to gamble so I went with just a burger. They even messed that up by some teenage worker bringing me a gluten free cheeseburger. They did say that the buns never touch the grill so the grill was gluten free by default. I would be cautious as the workers were overwhelmed and the fryer is not a dedicated gluten free fryer. Overall, the burger was ok-not amazing but did not get sick.

I tried tasty burger yesterday, it was indeed tasty. My downfall was the fries. I had just about finished then and found an onion ring at the bottom. I had asked if they had a separate fryer and they assured me they did. Today I am feeling very sick, stomach pain and bloat. the GF bun was good though but I would stay away from ordering anything else.

Ordered a burger on a gluten free bun. The bread tasted just like normal bread. Not like typical gf bread that falls apart or feels cakey. Fries were good too; nice and crispy and the perfect amount of fry to salt ratio. Would recommend.

They have the best GF hamburger buns I have ever tasted they don’t fall apart they’re amazing! The staff is very knowledgeable about what ingredients and which of their sauces contain gluten. The carmelized onions have gluten because they add a little bit of flour to them I was told. They don’t have a dedicated fryer for the fries, but they are GF and the tots as well. I have celiac and have never gotten sick from their fries. Great “tasty” burgers!

In the past 3 years of coming here we’ve been told like a dozen times that the fries are gluten free and fried in their own oil. Today the sever tells me they’re not gluten free and have never been. I don’t know what the truth is but it’s really annoying that the staff doesn’t know either and acted like I was crazy.

Live nearby and have loved this place since before I got my diagnosis. I was so happy to learn they offer GF buns, and they taste pretty good too! They also recently switched to a dedicated fryer for their fries, which is a nice bonus. I've been safe eating here even when ordering at the to-go window outside

I got the tasty burger and fries.. Told them I had a gluten allergy and as soon as I got home I felt very sick. Must have been cross contamination, but it doesn't seem like they take thing seriously. I definitely will not trust going to them again. So sad because it's always good to find a good gluten free burger while you're out with friends and not have to worry about getting sick. :(

I live across the street and frequent Tasty Burger often. They aren't lying when they say they make a tasty burger. Those with celiac (like me) do have to be careful. I've been contaminated a few times now, namely by the fries. Remind staff repeatedly to not put fries in the salt mill, as the onion rings which are not gf also go through the salt mill.

The burgers are delicious and I have been assured that the fries are gluten free. My issue is that I found an onion string in my french fries the most recent time I ate here after being assured the onion strings and french fries were cooked in separate friers. Time will tell if I get sick.

Food was excellent at the Back Bay Station location and I was told I was able to get a gluten-free bun. I also ordered the French fries which I was also told were gluten-free but I got very sick 30 minutes after eating there.

Tasty Burger has a delicious gluten-free veggie burger! It's the best veggie burger I've had (gluten-free or not). Their turkey burger and fries are also excellent. The gluten-free buns are good - and very filling. They used to have really good gluten-free cookies, brownies, and blondies, but they don't have desserts any more.

Heads up that the onion rings are definitely not gluten free, at least at the Fenway location. They are battered with flour. The fries are gf and cooked separately. The buns are gf and df.

Ordered a burger with gf bun and it came out in a regular bun, I alerted the waiter of the mistake and he apologized and brought out the same burger in a gf bun 2 minutes later. I asked if it was the same burger and he said yes and I explained that I needed a new burger, he seemed very annoyed and made me feel like such a burden.

I love Tasty Burger and go fairly often when I want to eat out. However, the last time I was there, there was an onion string mixed in with my fries. It looks like they've gotten sloppy and are not careful about maintaining a separate fryer. I got sick so I won't be eating the fries anymore (sob). Burgers remain delicious but will now be more wary since I don't really trust the kitchen to be super careful.

Spicy jalapeño burger & gorgonzola burger were delicious... prepared & delivered separately. Staff was receptive to GF requests. Each GF bun was a $1.25 upcharge, and also dairy-free. Avoided the fries, as Is heard that they used the same oil for both fruits & onion rings.

Good place for a quick bite... we'll be back.

I eat here regularly and have never had a major reaction. I only trust the fries at the Harvard Square Tasty Burger and the burgers are excellent! I always check my receipt to make sure the cashier flagged my meal as “allergy.” If it’s not flagged, there’s a much higher chance of contamination.

I love Tasty Burger, it's fast food at it's best in a fun environment. I have celiacs and can't eat gluten, so I'm posting a response here from their (really nice and prompt) customer service that I received after submitting a question about the existence of a gluten free fryer and a rumored "salt mill".

"The following is accurate information for all four of our locations in Boston/Cambridge: We have a separate fryer for gluten-free items: French fries, veggie patty, tater tots. Onion rings and our chicken patty (both contain gluten) are fried together in another fryer. The salt mine is used for both onion rings AND fries, so please ask that your fries are a) unseasoned or b) seasoned in their container (not the salt mine). Also, please let a server or cashier know when you're ordering that you have an allergy. Our protocol requires the manager on duty to oversee your experience."

So, follow the instructions and enjoy those fries!

Asked if there was a dedicated fryer because I had seen on some older reviews that there was- employee seemed unsure but said they should be gf. I figured it should be safe because of the reviews and how sick could some French fries make me? The answer is pretty sick- I wouldn’t trust it
