    It's awesome that a larger chain like Erik's Deli stocks gluten free bread as a standard! The bread tastes like regular bread and the sandwiches are great. It makes me feel like I'm a normal person with lots of menu options to choose from. Yay!

    If you're gluten free this is the place to be! All sandwiches on the menu can be made gluten free (if you have Celiac they even have a separate work station and change gloves) and there are also several other delicious options. Taste is not sacrificed and the food is absolutely amazing as well as the customer service. If I lived in the area this would be my regular for sure, love the place.

    the staff were really friendly and very gracefully handled our group of seven hungry runners fresh from ragnar relay. I love the pickle mascot and was given a pin with the pickle mascot. also, the pickles are excellent. my friend who needed the gluten free meal enjoyed her sandwich and soup. Will keep this place in mind for next year's ragnar. please open locations in los Angeles

    I'm not really a sandwich person but I love this place! The bread is so soft and delicious. The tomato soup is also a favorite. They're very careful with a separate cutting board and knife.

    Just a great sandwich place. Gluten free bread is really good and holds up well while you eat your sandwich. Gluten free cookies at check out and the workers knew which soups were gluten free. We went two nights in a row! There is a tiny risk of contamination, I think, if they make your sandwich where they make all the regular sandwiches. Worth asking about.

    All sandwiches can be made on GF bread. Most soups GF and they have GF cookies aaa well. Took >20 min for our order during a busy Saturday lunch rush but it was worth it. I think the manager prepared our order so it would be safe. Outdoor seating available so we could bring our dog.

    I'm a very sensitive celiac and I think this location really understands! It took a few extra minutes because of wipe downs, getting the gluten free knife and getting the gf cutting board from the back. I stop here frequently when I visit my parents, and will continue to. The sandwiches are good!

    Erik's deli is a nice place to eat and they do try to accommodate people with gluten sensitivities, however on their web page there is a statement about the gluten free bread and it is made from wheat. So I contacted the people about that and they did in fact confirm the gluten free bread contains wheat and being a celiac I was rather saddened, however their salads are good as an alternative.

    Went here yesterday for lunch and the staff was quite nice. They use Udi's bread at no additional charge which is nice! I was not told that the mayo or mustard was not GF as the other reviewer stated (nor have I come across a mayo or mustard that was not GF) so I had a nice moist sandwich with no consequences after! The tomato basil soup was also yummy. Prices are fair- I will be back for lunch again!

    I've eaten here several times and never had a reaction. It's a deli sandwich on Udi's. You can get excited about that or not. I noticed one review didn't like the mayo, I always request "light on the goo" and getting over-mayoed has never been a problem for me. (Erik's uses a mustard/mayo combo they call goo) I have never tried the gf soups.

    I had a veggie sandwich on gf bread. It was ok... Bread was pretty bland and crumbly but that is pretty standard for gf bread. It was smothered in mayo which was not awesome. Tomato bisque was good but was sitting out, risking cross contamination. I also didn't watch the preparation of the sandwich. Wish I had bc I didn't feel great afterwords but that may have been the heavy cream in the soup rather than cross contamination. Overall it was great to have options, but execution was poor.

    Staff was able to quickly print off a list of all of their gf ingredients from their cash register for me to look at (didn't include beverages, but I looked up the Nantucket Nectars brand they carry and it is gf). The Udi's multigrain bread they use is fresh, soft, and larger than the Udi's bread you can buy in grocery stores. The staff told me that the larger loaf is made specifically for restaurants. Great experience. I highly recommend this restaurant for gf soups and sandwiches (salads too, I think).

    They get their bread from Boulangerie. It is so soft and playable I thought they made a mistake. Full sized slices from a loaf. I get the pilgrims progress (turkey, Ava, sprouts, onion), but I may have an issue with the special sauce they put on it. I'll ask them to leave it out next time and report back. They DO change their gloves before making your sandwich without you even asking, and are very polite. Will get 5 stars if skipping the sauce makes it painless.
