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!

La gente que atendía el lugar fue muy considerada y tenían en claro todas las opciones. La hamburguesa muy rica y viene dentro de una caja de cartón. Muy recomendable.

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.

Best burger buns in the Boston area! So nice to have something other than an Udi's bun on a burger for once.

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.

We were told by the server that the onion rings are now gf. The guy who delivered the food didn't know. We'll let you know if their is any reaction.

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.

Awesome! I was told the onion rings and the fries are in different fryers. I had the tasty burger and it was delicious on what looked like an Udis GF bun. Would definitely recommend.

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

Condescending and rude staff. When I questioned about the cross contamination practices, I was given the answer that the staff knows what to do. No matter what I asked, I was given the same answer. We turned around and walked out.
