    The food was delicious, don't get me wrong there... But I took a calculated risk by eating here and I was wrong. Mentioned I had celiac and needed everything cleaned and employees' hands washed, but regardless it's the sickest I have ever been in the 13 years since I've been diagnosed.

    My wife has Celiac's and they had more options than she could choose from, as well as great food for me as well. It was a win win for the both of us! For those dumb enough not to ask for them to wash their hands and cutting boards for cross contamination . . . y'all deserve to get glutoned.

    Ugh, I got SO sick from gluten here. They make GF sandwiches with the same boards/knifes that they use for gluten, and pretty much the whole place is contaminated. Would definitely not recommend.

    Bite was good, but one bite was all it took to become extremely ill. Talked to them and oh, yes, they do have cross contamination. Offered me refund and directions to nearest medical clinic or to call 911. Did have a big GF menu if its ypur preference and not celiac.

    CJs Deli was the perfect lunch spot for our family. So many gfree choices at reasonable prices! The french dip was awesome and the potato salad was so yummy! The staff was knowledgeable and helpful.

    An extensive GF menu. So many options to choose from. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food was good. My reason for a lower rating...the girl at the register was slightly rude and not very detail oriented. Got my food and thankfully asked to make sure it was a GF bun...she forgot! Good thing I double checked. Other than her, it was a good experience.

    CJ's Deli is a great surprise!! I split the burger and ribs with my boyfriend and both were fabulous!! The ribs had a great smoked flavor and the BBQ sauce was awesome. I can't wait to go back!! Dedicated GF menu and staff was very knowledgeable about GF.

    Wonderful little "hidden gem". After a long day of sitting at beach we just wanted something light. Perfect choice. Separate GF menu and staff very allergy conscientious.

    Excellent GF menu. I had the chicken burger (really just grilled chicken) which comes with house-made hummus and sprouts on a GF bun (which I recognized as Udi's). Also had the pineapple coleslaw, which I determined to be dairy free as well as GF. Overall good review for their offerings but I did observe potential cross contamination: cook used shared tongs when toasting my bun and regular buns. OK for me, but I can't say it would be Celiac friendly.

    Huge selection for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert! Separate GF menu and staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. I appreciate the care they took in preparing my celiac son's meal. We'll be back!

    Huge disappointment. I called ahead to see if they'd be able to accommodate my dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy, egg, vinegar). The woman on the phone said it wouldn't be a problem and all I needed to do was come in and talk to my server and they'd be able to accommodate me. When I went in and spoke to the cashier who took my order, she proclaimed that she doesn't know how I'm able to eat anything and in a huff asked the cook to come over to discuss what they could serve me. The cook was much nicer and said that they could make some steamed vegetables, pan-fried fish and plain white rice. They don't have any dedicated gf areas, so there is always risk for cross-contamination since they use the same pots and pans. Do not go here if you are Celiac or highly sensitive to gluten.

    Best GF (and vegetarian) meal of our Hawaii trip. Huge selection of GF options and knowledgeable staff. Large menu for the entire family. Everything from meatloaf to life burgers. Definitely a must if you want GF.
