Boston Restaurant Review: Burton's Grill

One of our "go to" restaurants with a gluten free menu in Boston is Burton's Grill. They have several locations besides the Fenway Park location, including:

Hingham, MA
North Andover, MA
South Windsor, CT
Virginia Beach, VA

Without a doubt, this restaurant meets my high standards. Every gluten free meal my husband and I have eaten at Burton's has been delicious. One of their most outstanding gluten free options {...}
is their french fries: they have a dedicated fryer for their gluten free french fries! This might seem incidental, but to those of us in the gluten free world who cannot eat french fries unless the fries themselves are gluten free AND they're made in a certified gluten free fryer, this is no small potatoes (you should pardon the pun). The only caveat I will mention is that on several occasions I've had to send my fries back and ask for "just-out-of-the-fryer" crisp taters. I mean, if I'm going to eat french fries, I want them to be perfectly hot and crisp. The few times I sent them back, Burton's went the distance for me.

They also have gluten free Fish & Chips. I've never ordered this - I don't usually allow myself to indulge in two fried items at one meal. But my husband almost always orders it and he LOVES it.

While they have a few vegetarian options, I would personally like to see them increase their gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian options. There are many people like me who, in addition to being gluten free, also don't eat dairy or meat. With a creative chef, it wouldn't be difficult to come up with a couple of gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian options.

Other than that, the food is delicious, the gluten free menu boasts a pretty extensive list of options (and they serve Redbridge gluten free beer - another plus!), and the waitstaff definitely aims to please. This restaurant gets a 9 out of 10 thumbs up.
