When I asked if they had a gluten free menu, they told me no, but they could give me a burger in a lettuce wrap. She asked if it was for a gluten allergy (which I know celiac isn't really an allergy, but I just said yes)when I said yes she called to the back that a gluten allergy order was coming back. When I asked if the shakes were gf, she asked someone. They went to the back, came back and said yes.

Their fries are fried with gluten items. Gluten free buns on hamburger is good.

Roll the dice at Shame Shack if you want. They'll ask you if it's an allergy when you order a gluten free bun, but they don't really know what that means. I've asked different people there if the fryer is shared and got different answers. Really though, this chain just isn't very good.

I have been GF for 4 months now. The gluten free bun here is one of the best I have ever had from a restaurant. They also made it a point to ask if I had an allergy or if it was preference. When I said allergy, they made sure to pack my burger in a separate bag and took noticeable measures to ensure no cross-contamination. Would recommend this location!

I’ve eaten here a few times and have been told something different each time about the fryer. When I only got a burger, they were very good about glove changes and minimizing cross contamination. The next time I went (when I was told the fryer was safe), I got fries with my burger. Symptoms ensued :( Burgers are safe if you tell them it’s an allergy/Celiac, fries are not. It all tastes REALLY good though!!

If I could give zero stars to this place, I would. I am such an easy going person and easy to please. I was excited when I read reviews on this app about how accommodating the staff and business was. My husband and I waited in line 30+ minutes and even saw that behind the counter the staff had a “directions” card on how to ensure that cross contamination does not occur. Meanwhile, I was singing their praises while waiting in line. Once we get up to the front, I let them know I have a gluten allergy so if I could do the dedicated fryer option and gluten free bun that would be wonderful. The lady at the register was unfriendly and said we have no gluten free options here. Everything is contaminated. I said, everything? You don’t have any options at all? Then she turned to another staff member to ask and she was equally as unhelpful. Both simply said no, and just stared at me. No help, advice, nothing. Soo disappointed by this. I look forward to giving good reviews on places when they accommodate gluten free because I know it’s a big deal and takes extra practices to ensure it is safe to eat. I am beyond appreciative of those and was truly looking forward to trying out a new place but evidently that was not an option :( won’t be trying this again or recommending to others.

This place really only serves shakes and burgers, but I love that they do a gluten free bun, not an awful lettuce wrap. Online you can order the gluten free bun, but to have them *go all out* you must tell them “I have a gluten allergy”. It is also egg free which I need!

Was trying to find a local burger joint, but couldn't find one that felt safe enough, so I went to Shake Shack. I have eaten at other Shake Shacks with no issue and it was no different at this location.Used the app to order, good experience, staff was friendly. You can add "Gluten Allergy" alert to every item, Gluten Free bun is $1 add on.

Dedicated fryer, had a good burger with no cheese and no bun. Plate was marked allergy and the person that made my food delivered it to the table. They asked me if I had an allergy or a preference to not have gluten and dairy.

If you order at the kiosk you can select which allergies you have and it will tell you which things are safe. When you select that you have an allergy the manager comes out to speak with you about it and checks your order. The manager also followed up with me to make sure everything was correct!

The gluten free bun is the best I have had. They immediately ask if GF is “allergy or presence” so they have had some training.

That said, not sure this is the best protocols for safety. I have never had a reaction here but I am very careful when talking with them.

GF bun is great (they actually heat it up for you) & ask if it’s an allergy or a preference. The fries I’ve been told are now GF in their own fryer, but I’m not a big French fry person so I haven’t checked.

Staff knew about gluten free and asked if it was a preference or allergy. To me that meant they were going to handle my order differently.

Gluten Free bun was dry, but show me a gluten free bun that's not LOL.

Fries are cooked in vegetable oil which is a no no for me due to cross contamination with winter wheat usually grown in the same fields as soy beans.

No problems after eating there.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn’t mind the GF bun - it was a nice change from the standard, overly-dense Udi’s bun that most GF restaurants offer. That being said, the bigger problem is, by far, the quality of the food. The meat in the burger was soooo unbelievably greasy that my son and I were almost instantly sick to our stomachs after eating it. The patties were thin, extremely salty and, as previously stated, drenched in grease. If you are looking for GF fast food, you may not mind, but I certainly won’t be eating at this chain again. I regretted the decision to eat here almost as soon as I finished my meal.

Good burger with surprisingly good bun. I don’t think anything else on the menu is GF, but that’s enough to keep me happy. The ordering process is a little unusual in that it is done on tablets at kiosks. You need to make sure that you specify GF bun AND add allergy instructions on your order. I’ve eaten here several times with no ill effects.

This recently opened and it’s a great space. Service has been slow but hopefully will get better as they really get going. GF buns, but can’t have the fries. Milkshakes can be GF depending on the kind but I guess there’s always a risk since they do cookies etc in some kinds. But the burgers are tasty!

The staff that rang me up seemed knowledgeable and the burger was yummy. You can’t eat the fries, though, and their shake sauce has gluten in it. I was a little thrown off that my bun was grilled, as I don’t know if that was safe, and I’m used to being told places avoid the grill because of cross contamination. I felt tired after, but no other intense symptoms. So, I think I got a bit of cross contamination there, but not as bad as I usually react. Maybe inquire more than I did about cc.

Ordering is done by you on a tablet, so no chance of messing up the order. They have separate entry for gluten and wheat when checking off the allergy list, and when you flag them, a staff would come check your order to make sure that what you ordered are indeed OK with your need. GF buns were delicious and so was the burger great for semi-fast food.

The staff is very friendly. When you order the gluten free bun, they ask if you have an allergy to gluten and then make an announcement to the kitchen if you do. The burgers are delicious and the bun is really good! Some of their shakes are also gluten free. They have an allergy menu list with all the allergies and what you should stay away from.

We went just for ice cream. There weren’t a lot of options for my daughter with Celiac Disease, but the staff was knowledgeable about what she could have and it was prepared separately. The only ice cream option we felt was safe for her was the custard without any mix-ins. It’s good custard though.

Went straight to the counter to ask questions, the girl seemed unsure, but the manager came right over. We went over the options together and my son had a cheeseburger on a GF bun and some soft serve vanilla straight from the machine at the back. The manager actually prepared my son’s food himself to make sure it was done properly, and to put me at ease, and it was on its own tray. A little disappointed they don’t have a dedicated fryer, but not surprised with the breaded chicken items on the menu. Great service, though.

Shake Shack’s bun is so close to looking and tasting like a normal counter restaurant burger, it’ll have you second guessing if they somehow made a mistake. They do ask if they gf bun is due to an allergy and will make the necessary adjustments when handling to ensure there is no cross contamination. Had my first SS burger at JFK during a long delay and was sooo impressed I frequent the ATX location now. Haven’t had the fries because they are crinkle cut which just remind me of cafeteria fries.

GF options for burgers include GF buns and lettuce wraps. Husband is gluten intolerant and it was fine. Daughter has celiac and we did not risk trying the bun. (Curious to hear others’ experiences before we take that plunge!) Burgers came in a paper boat with all buns touching... but we didn’t give specific instructions beforehand. Maybe could have avoided that cross contamination with proper communication, as staff seemed nice and accommodating. Dedicated fryer for their delicious crinkle-cut fries.
