    Drive an hour and a half total just for his gluten free cheesesteaks, cheesesteak hoagies and subs! Love his fries too. Take cross contamination very seriously, always greeted with a smile! Closest to a real cheesesteak I have found in 7 years! For the non celiac in my family, the pretzel roll cheesesteaks are a beloved favorite!!

    I am not a huge fan of the hoagie rolls, but we don't have many options for great bread. lol Way too dense and heavy! Other that the food is good. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

    Excellent buffalo chicken cheese steak. I would love a location by me in Long Island NY, it was too bad I was only here on business for a night. I would have eaten again if I was here another night.

    my girlfriend was really cautious about having this because she has celiac however it was the first time in over a decade she has had a chicken parm and she loved it. I think we just found a great place they have awesome food and I would recommend it to everybody

    Awesome Gluten Free food and an owner that loves what he does. The wings and the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak are my go to and all time favorite. Never had a bad reaction, definitely Celiac Friendly. Well worth the half hour drive it takes me and I always bring extra home.

    I didn't like the GF chicken steak and kids didn't like the GF chicken strips. Plus they don't wear gloves when making the food. Don't think I'll be back.

    My very first gluten free cheese steak in almost 10 years being a Celiac. So delicious and amazing bread. I am one happy girl! Thanks Find Me Gluten Free for another delicious suggestion. I know this will be the first of many visits to Jays. Loved loved my sandwich. Carol

    This place was incredible. As a newbie to the GF world- I thought going out and getting chicken tenders or a steak sandwich was completely off the table for me now. But Jay's has so many different options and the food was so good! I can't wait to go back and work my way through his extensive GF menu 😊

    This place is phenomenal. The menu is filled with gluten free options and the owner (Jason) is very conscious of making sure gluten free items are prepared separately or fried in a gluten free dedicated fryer. I plan on coming to Jay's again. The food was delicious!

    We drove an hour to try out the gluten free food and it was well worth the drive! It was the first time in over a year my kids had a cheese steak and meatball sandwich in public!

    Jay's is our go-to steak joint -- 3 of our family are celiac and we go there at least once a week and have never had a gluten reaction. They have so many options which are truly designed for the GF customer. If you are anywhere near, it is worth a stop for your philly cheesesteak fix.

    Very good cheese steak. My only disappointment is that they are served in Against All Grain baguettes, which are calorie bombs. For that reason I wouldn't seek this out again. I didn't try anything else and they clearly had great practices to reduce the chance of cross contamination.

    The food, service & staff are awesome! I recently had the honor of working with Jay to design his new logo & menu. I was amazed at the amount of GF items on his new menu (over 30 items). He went above & beyond to stress how important his GF customers are to him. He understands their needs & has made them a priority. I don't need/choose to eat a GF diet, but out of curiosity I tried one of his sandwiches on a GF roll. I was blown away by the flavor! That roll was delicious! Anyone who needs to eat a GF diet will love this place. The selection & quality are unmatched. Over half of the menu is GF and they're Celiac-Friendly too. Definitely stop in or get it delivered & tell all your friends!

    Delicious gf food, lots of options. Have not had a cheesesteak in so long. I had a buffalo chicken cheesesteak & fries. It was delicious & served on a gf roll with amazing buffalo sauce. Staff is knowledgable & even bagged my food separately. Definitely will be back!

    Awesome place! Very friendly. Separate grill and fryer for gluten-free items. Finally! A real cheesesteak on a really good gluten-free roll! I live an hour and a half away, but whenever I'm near Philly I go there to get The buffalo chicken cheesesteak.

    A safe haven for us Glutards. They have a sperate prep area for GF fare, and they are always trying to make more GF options. Also pretty awesome with the tests program, pay it back program, and just donating to local food pantries. Just all around a great place to be a patron of. I could go on for hours...

    Quite aware of celiac sensitivity to cross contamination. I felt quite safe taking on the risk of eating out in their care.

    I had no idea that Jay's was a 10 min drive from me until recently. Had my first chicken cheesesteak in 10+ years and it was delicious! Jay is knowledgable, very personable and won't serve anything he wouldn't eat himself. Love this place!

    Website has not been updated to reflect the following : no mozzarella sticks and lunch meats are NOT gf, so you cannot get a hoagie

    Amazing! Jay's is the place to go if you are gluten free, but weren't born that way. The gluten free tool is the best I have had! And try play KLove while they work! Will definitely be back!

    Absolutely amazing food! Steak buns were really good as well as the chicken fingers. Haven't had such an amazing meal since 3 years ago before I was diagnosed.
