    Amazing gluten free menu! My Coeliac husband was not unwell after eating here. Server knew exactly what was gf. We didn’t like the drinks we ordered and they kindly swapped FOC. Above and beyond here. Make sure you time your visit before the lunch/dinner rush as it does get busy.

    Does your gluten free but have egg in it? Waitress: No it doesn't there is no dairy in it. She checks and it does have egg.

    Went here twice while in NY. So happy to have a safe burger and fries! The fries are very thin and very crispy and some of the best fries I have ever had. So nice to be able to build my own burger too with tons of GF options. Great to have the option of a lettuce option as a wrap if you avoid grains. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable both visits. Would for sure go back.

    Shannon, our waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and assured me there would be no cross contamination. He was right and it was hands down the best burger and sweet potatoe fries I have had in 5 years!

    Awesome gf place!! Great burgers and fries!! I wouldn't try the shakes because they serve malts for regular customers and they might use the same blenders as the shakes. But overall good gf burger joint!!

    Reliable and have a separate fryer for the Fries. Servers not uniformly knowledgeable but if you are patient and work with them it helps, for example got different answers on whether the pickles are GF. But after three or four visits our Celiac son has not gotten glutened yet and that is our standard. Only thing that would make a meaningful improvement in our view is getting a better bun. Shake Shack and some other places have figured it out; there are much better versions than Udi's out there (sorry Udi's!).

    My daughter was so excited to get a gluten free hamburger on a bun that tasted good and didn't fall apart when you picked it up. Customizing your burger added to the fun experience. We ate at the bar and Katerina was super friendly. It is definitely a great place to try!

    Very nice place for younger kids for gluten free. Not completely celiac friendly but good for GF.

    Dedicated fryer and GF bun, although bun is not the greatest. It's very crumbly/mushy. Burger on greens is an excellent alternative though!

    We were looking for something that was close to the Sondheim theater 🎭 and would be pretty quick and not super expensive (remember this is Times Square). My husband and I both had turkey burgers and enjoyed them. We were handed a coupon for fries when we walked up to the door and they were very good - shoe string style. I'm GF and they had a separate menu for me The GF bun was very tasty. We finished off with root beer floats. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was clean and well lighted. I would check it out when you're in Times Square

    It was nice that we were asked by the greeter if anyone in our party needed a gluten free menu. The gf menu had a lot of options even fries and sweet potato fries. They have a lot of options for customizing your burger. Enjoyed my meal here.

    We have eaten here a few times before and are always impressed. They have just as many gluten free options as they do regular options. The fries are also really really good.

    Great burgers made to order, nice and casual with real shoestring fries! They didn't talk a ton about GF but have GF bun option or with your burger on lettuce mix (not iceberg!).

    Found this place through this app and wandered in for carry out on a Friday night. Staff was friendly. We did the build your own burgers and picked gf buns and picked our toppings. I asked to confirm that they had a dedicated fryer because I'm celiac and they told me that they normally do, but one of their fryers was down so I shouldn't order the fries. As much as I wanted fries I'm always glad for honesty. I would rather not have them than be sick. We got milk shakes and headed out with our food. The burgers were really good and the buns were totally fine. I was so full that I didn't even miss the fries. I would definitely eat here again. It was expensive, but our burgers and milk shakes were both delicious.

    Despite name, this is a casual sit down place with table service and full bar. Counters for solo diners. Omission beer, dedicated fryer. Ask for gf menu - not everything you'd expect (chicken!) is gf.

    I have celiac and ordered a sandwich on gluten free bread. They handed me the food in a bag and asked them are they sure it's gluten free. They said yes. When I got home I called bc it didn't look like gf bread and they said they made a mistake

    Ate here two days in a row bc my teen loved it and service was so great. For GF use the build your own. It's pricey but not bad for NYC- and the burgers and gf fries (dedicated fryer for shoestring and sweet potato-yummy!) are great! Fast service, clean restrooms, convenient- please open one in Rhode Island! I loved the hippy salad- very filling even without chicken added. Thank you!!

    Every time I come to NYC I stop at The Counter for a burger. They understand Celiac and cross contamination, and the food is amazing. Love the bison burger! And a dedicated fryer makes the fries safe for consumption. Can't say enough good things about The Counter!

    It was crowded which seemed like bad news but they seated us right away. The tables are small and it's very noisy. The waitresses are nice and the food isn't bad. The only problem was my burger was not medium which I stressed and they forgot my lettuce. The menu choices are great, my husband has a gluten sensitivity and he thought his food was great although a GF bun is an extra $2. Their fries are okay but you should go for the make your own burger.

    Yummy GF buns for our burgers! High quality beef made for a tasty burger! Separate GF menu. Teens loved building their own burgers with exactly what they wanted for toppings. Sweet potato fries were very good!

    I am a regular here and I really love the food but for a burger no bun and Chz fries is $27 and the last time I went they wouldn't give me an extra sauce on side for fries without charging me extra pretty ridiculous. Strange because when I ask for extra in the past never a mention of extra

    This was our second time here. My son has celiac. The burgers are so yummy and for the first time in years he ate french fries without having to worry since they have a dedicated fryer. Its NYC so yes it isn't cheap but they are large portions.Staff was very knowledgeable.
