    How careful they are about your gluten free order really depends on how busy they are when you come in. If it's empty they are great and super careful, but if there are even a few other customers you might get sick. Their gluten free dishes are pretty good though!

    Great restaurant! Online it appears the only GF option is Pad Thai. But they can make several other dishes with the rice noodles, making them GF. If you ask in the restaurant, they will give you this list. They put the allergen alert on your order ticket and use a fresh wok for my food without me asking. Everyone takes it very seriously.

    Menu stated that they have wheat in everything and it is hard to control cross contamination... Meaning they don't care enough to try. Gluten free menu has 1 item... With a warning.

    I was told gluten free pasta is cooked on the same water as regular pasta. Definitely not safe for people with Celiac due to cross contamination.

    I have been twice the first time was great. my brother who has OCD makes it really had to eat at my house. so we out but now that I am gluten sensitive its been nearly impossible to get good food that can be safe for me and him. the second time I went was a little harder because the person who took my order was training and didn't know how to put in an allergy yet it took an extra 3 minutes and asking questions ."..of the sauce has flour so would you prefer cheese or no sauce at all?" and "did u order a regular or a small?" it was worth the first trip i just wish noodles and company could train about allergies first I'd this guy who is the second cook hadn't helped i would have paid for the wrong meal and gotten tomato's another allergy I have. I think I will go back just wanted you to know trainees are hit and miss

    Make it clear that you have an allergy. Manager is knowledgable but general staff were not. Chicken is prepared on the same grill as crusted items that contain gluten. I stick to shrimp and the pad Thai and have been fine twice with that. I had a reaction first two times when I had chicken pad Thai.

    It was very surprising to see that they have a very large choices of gluten free options. They even have a gluten free menu. I'll will go there very often now. The employee also said that they are changing many more soups and sauces to be gluten free. He told me that they just switched the tomato soup (which is awesome by the way) and Wisconsin Mac and Cheese just went gluten free (yum) needless to say I had both.

    The only gf pasta choices are rice noodles and fusilli. I had the fusilli with pesto, roasted tomatoes & mushrooms. The staff was friendly, but not any real knowledge about how the food is prepared. She actually told me that I should talk to my doctor before eating there because then I would know what I could have... Hmmm. Brilliant idea. Long story short, the pasta was gummy and did not outweigh the risk of being glutened (potentially). We will not be going back. Ever.

    Ordered Gluten free pasta option with Tuscan sauce option. Received wrong pasta that was not gluten free. Didnt notice til I got home unfortunately. We Called to speak to manager. She really didnt care to help me out. Kept insisting I ordered it wrong. Not sensitive to my situation, didnt care that I could have gotten sick. Will never be going back here because I will never trust the food.

    The only item I trust is the Pad Thai because the entire entree is listed as gluten free. Substituting gluten free noodles in different entrees may not have gluten free sauces. Also some meat options that you can add may not be gluten free (an employee told me this, so I avoid meat as well) But I absolutely love the Pad Thai and visit often.

    I'm severely gluten intolerant, but not celiac. The staff at this location thought that intolerant meant choice to be gluten free and made my Asian pasta with regular soy sauce. I assumed I didn't need to speak with the manager because I had heard how good Noodles and Company was with GF food.I had a reaction for the rest of the day. Every other location knows and makes my dish gluten free and no reaction. Lesson learned- do not go to this location unless you're celiac, and even then I'd very specific and speak directly to the manager.

    The review below is from May. Based on this experience, we had largely been avoiding this restaurant but gave it another try yesterday and the same thing happened. We generally have been happy with Noodles & Company but yesterday found bits of other noodles in a rice noodle order that had been put in with an allergy flag. The store apologized and refunded the order but that does not solve the problem, of course.

    Eat here every other week. Be careful of the sauces, for example the Mac and cheese sauce has gluten in it. Someone workers know that some don't. Make sure you double check before you ordered. When you order rice noodles or gf noodles always say you have a gluten allergy. This requires a manager swipe and they use a different pan to make your food.

    DO NOT GO HERE. Their "gluten guides" are entirely outdated. I ordered something off of it, took a few bites and felt like it tasted way too good to be gluten free, and of course it wasn't. This order went through both the cashier and the manager, and nobody stopped to tell me it wasn't actually GF. I'm now facing the consequences. The cashier seemed concerned and was very apologetic but the manager didn't seem like he was the slightest bit remorseful. Rude and uneducated staff means I'll never be back there.

    Noodle's & Co. has a lot of gluten-free options. Every menu option can be switched to one of the two gluten-free noodle options (rice pasta and Fazoli). Noodles & Co. has a gluten-free guide that is very helpful. I usually order spaghetti. Instead of meatballs, I ask for steak. The Tomato Basil soup is also now gluten-free. The manager explains my options and then swipes his card on the register to put an allergy alert on my order. I have dined at Noodle's & Co. numerous times and absolutely love their food!! I have Celiac Disease and never have been sick afterwards.
