This location doesn’t care about gf. The manager literally rolled his eyes while half heartedly apologizing for the mess up. (They gave me a plate covered in a gluten side TWICE.) This location is not trained properly. The bun was disgusting, stale, and chewy. Based on my reaction, they still gave me the same burger I repeatedly asked them to remake due to cc.

Note to add: The staff at the Burgatory on mcholme are very well trained. I’ve been going there for years and never had an issue. It’s worth the drive.

Staff was not very accommodating to helping with Gluten free options. Stated the menu was online- but didn’t know where to find it. I felt like I was imposing when asking questions. Staff needs to realize how sick a celiac customer can get when eating gluten and be more sensitive to it. I tip very well when I go out since it’s an occasion!

Burgatory - shame on your for not educating your staff and no menu to assist.

Great food. They have a gluten free bun, natural bison and grass fed elk. Bacon may have cross contamination due to the way they prep the bacon, staff was knowledgeable.

A BYOB (Build Your Own Burger) is always a good meal. I am slightly disappointed that they didn't have more gluten-free options/flexibility to sub for the fries and that the staff wasn't more knowledgeable on gluten-free. I was very happy to be seated but it was a bit cold on the patio.

They didn't have a gluten free menu readily available but the have a QR code you can scan to get the menu. Waiter was knowledgeable about what I definately couldn't eat. I ordered a plain no frills vanilla milkshake and burger with gluten free bun, lettuce tomato and pickles. No side. They gf sides were a salad, baked beans, and coleslaw. As it was my first time eating there I figured it was extra safe just to pass on the sides. I'm a very sensitive celiac and had no reaction to my meal. Would eat here again.

I have eaten here multiple times and they have always been great about celiac. I ordered today specially stated celiac and had my own gluten free menu. My burger came out with a onion ring on it. I told them and they did not care. I will not be coming back.

Great options burger/sandwich-wise, and I have not had a reaction after several visits. Waitstaff is accommodating and takes care to explain special preparation and precautions taken for those of us with celiac disease. No dedicated fryer, so avoid the chips and fries.

June 5, 2019. Another great meal. Servers were very knowledgeable. This can be a safe place to eat if you are careful with your ordering. They do offer a separate gluten free menu but you have to request it.

Had a terrible reaction after eating a burger here. Almost ended up in the hospital I was in so much pain. Pretty sure they accidentally gave me a regular bun (despite confirming it was GF when it came out) bc I have never been glutened this badly and it was so good it didn’t taste GF. Severe cramping for about 9 hours...not worth it.

My daughter and I are both Celiac and she is also lactose intolerant. They were very accommodating! Normally we can't have bacon here, but since they weren't busy, the cooks fried some in a safe environment for my daughter. They even told her they had vegan cheese and milk shakes. Great experience!

The burgers are flame grilled and taste AMAZING! I had mine lettuce wrapped and my husband had his with the GF burger and both had our minds blown! We had the chips with them and thought they were great too. They have a cider on tap and one in a bottle to choose from. Wish they had this chain in Texas. We will definitely be back next time we are in Pittsburgh!!

Burgatory is similar to other "build your own burger" chains like The Counter. They had a good burger, decent GF bun, great milkshakes. Portions are huge. I do wish they had more sides that were safe - a burger w/out fries can be a bummer. Our server was friendly, knew the menu, and took good care of us. It was very loud inside though.

Had an awful experience, I'm sorry - purchased 3 burgers w/GF bun, 2 milkshakes and 2 sides for $70. The burgers are very pink I felt uncomfortable eating it, the shakes tasted like wood and Hersheys syrup and we ended up throwing away the baked beans and coleslaw. I'm sad, I don't think we are picky eaters, but I need to mention it here as my son and I had digestive issues following.

Burger was OK. Too much salt in the rub imo. I asked for it to be cooked with just a little pink, it came out super pink.

The allergy menu was very detailed and specified which items that were GF could be cross contaminated and which ones shouldn’t be. The menu was great! However, even after choosing things which weren’t supposed to be cross contaminated, I didn’t even make it home before getting sick. I choose a made-to-order burger (sans any bun) with mushrooms and provolone and wrote on my slip CELIAC- no gluten, as well as made it clear to my waitress, so not sure where the cross contamination happened but it did. Hopefully it was a one time thing and other people will not have that problem (like I said, the menu was great and should have been fine if procedures were followed) but it will be awhile before I try it again.

My waitress was fantastic and came back often to check things with me and give me options (I have egg allergies as well). Got a burger with lettuce as a bun and they upgraded to greens at no charge. If you don’t want to be “squeezed” for an extra 1.50 as so many have complained about, just get it with lettuce. The place is safe and I will be back.

Seriously some of the best burgers I've ever had. A little pricey but you'll have never tasted anything like it before. The gluten free bun is sturdy and tastes like I remember normal bread tasting. The gluten free greens is a simple salad made of spring lettuce but still very tasty. I highly recommend this place.

p.s. the alcoholic shakes are fantastic as well.

Avoid if you have celiac. I came here based on the other reviews. I told them I have celiac and ordered a burger with no bun and a side of greens from their gluten free menu. My girlfriend, who ordered from the regular menu, got the veggie burger (not gluten free). As I was well into my meal I noticed some odd looking bits in my salad which turned out to be pieces of the veggie burger that must’ve fallen into my food when the plates being carried out together. Either that, or they were cooked on the same grill. The manager came out, apologized and refunded my burger. The waitress oddly didn’t acknowledge the incident, pretending that the whole thing never happened. She just brought the check and said “thanks for coming” and walked away. I felt a little sick for the next few days. Stay away if you have celiac!

Chips are not gluten-free. They were also not crunchy or soft. Just kind of dense hard oil slices.

My wife enjoyed her burger (and GF bun) , I enjoyed mine (the bun was the best) .

Flavor overall was a bit underwhelming, I expected more.
