They have so many gluten free choices. Chicken tenders French fries and onion rings they are done in a separate frier. I didn't try the burger my bonus son did with a gluten free bun and he loved it. I had the chicken tenders, onion rings was so good. We also got the vegan gluten free df vanilla shake it was so good. I will definitely be going back. They where so good at knowing about the allergies. No problems at all. Was really nice to be able to have options and a knowledgeable staff.

Wow!! This place needs a new review. Gf buns, dedicated fry frier. GF onion rings and GF breaded chicken. Bun is a standard Udi’s. Onion Rings are crispy. Vegan milkshake options (oat ice cream, almond milk. Pricey but delicious). I haven’t tried the chicken yet. Can’t have too many calories at once!! As far as I can tell, they have made it very allergen friendly in the last year or so with decreased risk of cross contamination. This store also has a sign to let staff know about allergens. Checkout the website, very good allergen info listed in the online menu. Olive oil is used. This is a local chain with many locations. Did not get sick. Will be back… after a few miles on the treadmill.

Everything fried is GF—fries, onion rings (tasty!), and ckn tenders. Asked them to change gloves for my burger and they did. GF items prepared on a tray, so they don’t touch the counter used for making gluten-containing foods. There is a risk of cross-contamination; they take reasonable measures. Did not get sick after.

At the National zoo looking for food. Pleasantly surprised to find that the Elevation Burger has GF buns (udis we think) and fries are GF and fried with chicken tenders which are coated in a GF batter. So kids chicken tenders and fries are also GF.

The staff seemed well aware of celiac. They told us they have a dedicated frier for the fries and they made sure to point out which food was gluten free when it was delivered (food was also not touching, so bonus points there). Good-tasting gluten-free buns are available. The prices were decent for a touristy area and the burgers were AMAZING! I've rarely had a burger where the meat almost melts in your mouth. Super delicious.

I recently moved to Hyattsville from Denver and have struggled to find accessible GF restaurant options. Elevation has GF burgers and onion rings, they also have quality dairy free cheese and milkshakes. The food was fresh and tasty with options for GF and vegan eats.

The guy working the register legitimately knew nothing about any of the food he was selling. I read online about the restaurant but had never been so I had lots of questions about ingredients, what was gluten free, and cross contamination. He couldn’t answer a single one, couldn’t even confirm that the breading on the chicken was gluten free even though that’s what it said online. I tend to not trust people who don’t know what gluten is because I often get sick in these scenarios so I did not eat there. I’m sure other locations are fine but the guy at Hyattsville was incompetent and also rude.

It was pricey for a burger and fries. $5.70 for a small order of fries. But they offer a gf bun for a $2 up charge or lettuce wrap for free. They have a dedicated fryer and grass fed beef.

Staff was not very pleasant especially the cook. The complained of being under pressure although there was only one small group behind us. The burger was average tasting and was dwarfed by the gluten-free bun. They do not take minimal efforts to prevent cross-contamination even when asked to do so. The woman at the counter cited their we don't have a gluten-free kitchen warning. Gluten free items and non gluten free items were prepared right next to each on the same surface and with the same gloves. I would expect better care in a diner. The onion rings however, we're gluten free and delicious. I would not return here.

We had stopped by and grabbed a to go menu before a bus tour. Was surprised at the amount listed as gluten-free. We went at 2:00 on a Saturday and it wasn’t crowded. I had a elevation burger on lettuce wrap with fries and my daughter had a guacamole ranch burger on a gluten free bun. Highly recommend the fries and elevation sauce. Super filling. Great place. We ate on the upper outside patio. My vegan daughter-in-law got the spicy fries with a tomato relish, Diaya cheese abs jalapeños as well as an impossible burger.

They do have a dedicated fryer, but there must be some serious cross contamination happening in the area where burgers are made. I should have known when the burgers all came out on the same tray. Thirty minutes after eating my lettuce-wrapped burger and fries (asked for GF and allergy alert) I was running to the bathroom. Glad our hotel is close.

Went here a few weeks ago when I moved into one of the apartments nearby. Burger was good, but just as a note they only have lettuce wraps as an option. Fries are gluten free but fried in olive oil, which isn't great for taste when actually frying foods. If in the area, it's a good option.

Staff great with Celiac knowledge! Burger was good, however, don’t waste the extra $2 for a gluten free bun. While it tasted ok, it fell apart immediately. Go for the lettuce wrap. All fries are done in dedicated fryer. They prepare gf on other side of kitchen and change gloves.

I went here for lunch with some friends because of the reviews I read, thinking that it was Celiac friendly. It wasn't. I got the chicken tenders and fries, and I got sick. All of my food was shoved into one bag with everyone else's. The food tasted great but was not safe for me to eat.

Not clean; floor sticky with grease and dirt. That alone would have been enough for me to walk out if I wasn't there with a group.

Informed cashier that I have celiac disease and watched the kitchen (which is clearly visible from the counter) as they prepared it. They did prepare it on a separate counter than the rest of the stuff, and the two kitchen staff changed gloves often as they kept switching between preparation of multiple orders.

But one of the staff failed to change gloves between directly handling buns and assembling my order; their cross-contact mindfulness is sub-par. I will not return.

I have Celiac Disease so I am always hesitant about eating out. I am not a burger person, but my husband suggested it. I am REALLY not a burger person. I cannot wait to get my next burger from here. So fresh and tasty, I had the Paleo Burger. The meat had a great flavor. It was so good! I asked the staff to change gloves for me to be safe and they did, I did not have any negative reaction. I also had the plain fries. I will definitely be back!

I have celiac disease and have severe reactions to gluten contamination. I have eaten here twice and haven't been sick! They were very careful with my order each time. They even added "gluten allergy" to my receipt! I ordered fries to share with my non-gf mom and they ensured that the fries were placed in a separate bag with my burger so they wouldn't be contaminated by her burger. The only downside is that they don't have a gluten free bun, so the GF burger is served lettuce wrapped. However, the lettuce wrap is always well done. The lettuce is fresh and the contents are delicious. Additionally, the food is great, organic and fresh- with beef from grass-fed, free range cattle that is ground on-site. They also have vegetarian and paleo friendly options.
