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.

They have tasty gluten free buns and dedicated fryers. Staff is super friendly and understands I have celiac and nothing can be cross contaminated. I’ve eaten here 5+ times and never gotten sick. :-)

I got a turkey burger with a gluten free bun it was delicious! This a counter service with helpful staff. The person helping me had to confirm with the manager they used a dedicated fryer ( yes they do ). I observed from a far the person cooking my burger changed gloves I forgot to ask but because I told the person taking my order I had a gluten allergy the preparer knew. A good option for a quick lunch.

Had a burger with a GF Bun. Burger was great, good size, juicy & very tasty. Fries were made in dedicated fryer - crisp & very good. Side salad was good too! Ate outside under an umbrella. Staff was very nice. This is a counter service place, but staff was pleasant & friendly.

Fantastic food! Ordered a burger with a gluten free bun and it was so good! Had a hard time finishing it because it was so big...my husband finished it and commented that the bun was actually good (he typically hates GF bread). Also asked if the fries were fried separately. They told me they were and so I gave it a shot. They were just as good and the best part is I did not get sick at all! Gluten intolerant and celiac friends can definitely eat here...just be sure to say you have a gluten "allergy" when you order so they know it's not just a food preference. They clearly mark "allergy" on your order. :)

My favorite burger place - the gf buns are great, better than Udi's. The fries are definitely gluten free in a dedicated fryer. I've never found onion string pieces in my fries, though my boyfriend (who is not gf) has had that happen. Just be very specific when ordering, some staff are more knowledgeable than others. I always request they change their gloves & etc. and have never gotten sick.

Great burgers, my husband w/ celiac never gets sick. But you can't eat the fries if you are celiac.

The bun was good. The burger itself was ok,but the meat wasn't was good as other fast food places. The fries were greasy and not a lot of flavor.

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.

Great burgers and GF buns. The fries were good, but where fried in a non gf dedicated fryer. Overall great and the waiters were friendly, knowledgable, and helpful.

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.
