Gluten Free Buns

Shake Shack says ‘Please do not order our fries. The oils in our fryers are filtered through the same equipment as our ‘Shroom Burgers.’
The Shroom Burgers and other fried foods like their Chik’n bites are not gluten free and may be filtered in the same oil.
Unfortunately Shake Shack does not list any of their sauces on the allergy page except for Shack Cheese Sauce with is not gluten free. We recommend asking about: Shack Sauce, Mayo, and other toppings/condiments to confirm at the store.
