    Very knowledgable staff and every item is labeled for gluten and vegetarian diets so you know what options you can have (almost everything). The food wasn't what I was used to but I have grown to love it and rely on this nearby restaurant as a fast food staple.

    Many gluten free options: Falafel, salads, kabobs soups, hummos and gluten free laffas ( wraps) to wrap it all up. Some of the soups are gluten free as well. Just ask.

    I have Celiac very severe and the store on Arapahoe makes all my food with clean gloves and everything from the back. Never been sick. I do go when they are less busy and wait a little longer than my family to get my food. Totally worth it though. Love the pitas!

    I LOVE Garbonzos!!! Yes,as the previous review shared tjere is cross contamination from the food "on the line". But i have eaten there dozens & dozens of times without getting sick. My "secret"? I tell them i have a very sensitive allergy & could they please bring out some "x" from the back so that there is no risk... they offer to get me fresh anything! I do try not to go when there is a line to the door so i don't slow things down for a big line behind me... I have been to the location in Lone Tree the most - but have also been to the one in Park Meadows - Arapahoe & Orchard - even Boulder - this can be a celiac friendly safe place to eat & i have yet to meet a grumpy or difficult employee when i ask them for extra help & service!!!

    AWESOME!! Virtually every item, save the orzo soup and the pita, is gluten free. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. And best of all, the food was delicious! Babaganoush was EXCELLENT! I WILL BE BACK! UPDATE: Went back and came away sick. The first time I visited, everything was freshly put out (must have been the time of day) and all was well. Went during lunch and had a totally different experience. Changed rating to one star.

    Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill here! We want to ensure the correct information is out there about our gluten-free options. While we have many gluten-free items on our menu and we strive to serve gluten-free guests to the best of our ability, we do not claim zero cross contamination in our restaurants. We are also not GiG trained, despite the rating Find Me Gluten Free has given us. If you are gluten-free, please let our servers know as soon as you enter the line. They should do this when you alert them, but if not please ask them to change their gloves, use fresh serving utensils and use fresh food kept in coolers under our front line. Our servers are also happy to answer any questions you may have about ingredients. Our website, www.EatGarbanzo.com, is also a great place to find our ingredients list. Thank you, The Garbanzo team

    While nearly everything is labeled as gluten free, there is a ton of cross contamination and staff seems to be unaware that they should take any precautions. While standing in line I observed the spoon for the humus be wiped across a pita and plopped back into the dish, gloves weren't changed so the server touched a gluten containing something and then reached into the falafels, etc. What a bummer. No thanks!

    We visited Garbonzo's while in town for a family event. Reading the reviews I got the idea that it was set up similar to Chipotle but with with Greek/ Mediterranean food, and that's exactly what it was you. You pick your style (wrap, salad, plate, pita) and then pick your protein and whatever else you want on it. While we waited they gave us a falafel (which was awesome). I ordered a salad and I was happy to see that each time someone ordered gluten-free they changed their gloves and they also pulled out a sep. set of ingredients from under the counter that had been set up for GF orders (to avoid cross-contamination). The food was excellent. I even went back and ordered more homemade chips & hummus to take back to our family. I really hope this chain spreads and I find one close to me soon.

    The first time i came here the servers were well away about how to prepare GF food. My second time back and the servers (different set of people) thought they knew how to serve GF, but still had cross-contamination. They used the same spoon, but changed out the food :/ good thing the General Manager was there doing audits and I was able to tell her what the servers did. She wasn't very happy with them. I really like the food and want to come back if/when they can serve it the right way.

    Loved this place pre-diagnosis, but I don't plan to return. What I have observed in their food-prep area is an absolute cross-contamination nightmare. My body is too sensitive to take that kind of risk.

    Excellent food, enjoy the quality and quantity of gluten free options. However, after having gone here several times, our last visit was just that. The server was using the utentils to serve gluten free items into the pita sandwiches and back into the gluten free spreads. For someone who is highly sensitive, I notified the manager who stated sorry that is the way we serve our food here. This does not sound like a GIG trained practice to me. Eat at your own risk as far as cross contamination goes, otherwise good food.

    Delicious gluten free falafel! Seriously, you have to try it. I ended up getting a salad because I was in a hurry, but I got 2 dressings for it and it was a huge bowl. It was the best I'd had in awhile! Service was fast and friendly.

    My husband is celiac and although he loves the food here and the items that don't have wheat in them are clearly indicated there is no way to escape cross contamination. They may give you a new spoon and change their gloves but they have already taken their previous contaminated spoon and used it to opens pita and then stick it in the food. For a celiac, that whole container of food is contaminated, pita crumbs mixed into it. It's really disappointing cause it's really tasty food.

    This place is kind of like a Mediterranean food version of chipotle. We do eat here at least once a month. Without some kind of bread or cracker, it's a little lacking, I will bring my own crackers next time and it will help. The gluten free options are on their website or they have little signs in front of most of the items. Over all, a decent place to grab a healthy lunch or dinner.
