Overall Noodles n Co is pretty good. This location hasn't cooked the fusili noodles correctly anytime I've been there.
Very good system intended to help protect GF diners. Managers have to swipe register acknowledging that a GF order was place and they presumably follow up with cooks to make sure precautions are taken. I've had mostly good luck, but there certainly has been times during lunch rush where they must not have cleaned cooking surfaces well and cross contamination has occurred.
Great food and friendly, great service. They know what you are talking about when you tell them you have an allergy. Rice noodles work with any dish and now they have new gluten free noodles advertised on the tables.
Try the gluten free pasta with many dishes.
Before going, we called first and spoke with the manager. Each meal starts off with a sanitized pot and the gf noodles are cooked in their own water, with the employees changing their gloves and using new tongs. You have to pay extra for gf noodles but it's well worth it since this was our daughters' favorite restaurant before being diagnosed with celiac. The Mac and cheese sauce is not gf, but we got buttered noodles with shredded cheese on top. They liked it a lot! So happy that one of our favorite restaurants is Celiac aware!
I kept getting sick everytime I ate here. I took a 6 month break and came back. It took 3 tries to get my meal gluten-free, including one unfortunate bite I spit out. I got so sick. I tried a different dish at a different location, got sick there too. I am never eating at Noodles, again.
I have been eating there for 2 years and have never been dissatisfied with any of there meals. Lisa helps me all the time and is always great. All the employes work very well together and I will always highly recommend eating there. We have our lunches catered to feed everyone ant Ray Citte RV. They all loce it.. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ......
Fantastic for gluten-free eats. Lots of options and with allergen friendly staff (I even ordered a certain salad and when my husband picked it up they wanted to let him know they had noticed it was a GF order but a salad dressing I'd requested was not actually GF and would he like to change it...). Lots of international fare. My favorite dishes are the Pad Thai and Bangkok Curry. Yum yum yummy! You can also order online for quick and easy pickup.
They have gluten free fusilli to substitute for their noodle dishes but not all dishes are safe with that substitute. Wait staff is not educated so be careful.
I got the Pad Thai and enjoyed it. I also did not get sick after eating which is rare for me when I go out! Great GF options plus it's a chain so it makes my life a lot easier!
I have eaten there and are aware of gluten sensitivities and other allergies. They do have GF stuff along with rice noodles you can substitute with many dishes and a whole allergen pdf online for those with other allergies: www.noodles.com/files/nutrition/nutritioninfo.pdf
Love the selection!
Safety tends to vary from location to location. At this one, my celiac daughter ordered a soup they said was gf, then found regular noodles mixed in with the gf noodles. Staff did not show concern when I pointed it out. I hope they've since been trained better.
food is good but make sure they get your order correct
So glad that I can have the buttered noodles I loved before I had to go gluten free! There is a $2 charge for the gf fusili noodles but I think it's worth it to have another gf option in Muncie when I am visiting my mom. Also, the Pad Thai is gf already with rice noodles (and delicious!), so no extra charge if that's what might be holding you back.
When I ordered my noodles over the phone I asked for the rice noodles. The employee asked if it was for an allergy and assured me that they would use a new pan. The order came with only rice noodles, however, I got sick off of it so I believe they didn't do a very good job of preventing cross-contamination.
Staff is very knowledgable and dedicated to ensuring no cross-contamination. Though they can't 100% guarantee it, they do cook GF noodles first in the cookers and always wash out when a wheat pasta was cooked if more is needed. I've never gotten sick! :) Great service to boot!
You can substitute any dish with rice noodles OR GF farfalle pasta which they just started serving. Just be careful of what else comes on the dish (like meatballs) because I am not sure the whole thing would be GF. The pad thai is pretty amazing. I recently ordered the GF farfalle with marinara and chicken and it was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had! AND it was quick!
They had 2 gf pastas. The person taking the order had a huge attitude about me asking what was gluten free. I then found 3 non gf noodles
Noodles and company has a lot of great different pasta selections that are gluten free and taste really good. I haven't gotten sick from eating there before.
Very good and knowledgeable
Gluten free pasta is delicious! They have a tiny pamphlet at the register that lists gluten free choices. Of course they have the disclaimer about cross contamination. I haven't noticed a reaction to anything I've had.
Noodles & Company is one of those rare "fast food" companies that has a full GF menu with allergen list accompanying it. They have their own gf pasta to make almost any regular dish. Their Pad Thai is delicious. When you order off the gf menu the server will mark it as an allergy and tell the cooks so they use a dedicated pan for you. They really seem to know what they are doing for people with allergies.
Really friendly. Attentive to GF and new menu includes GF pasta.
They have gluten free corn noodles! Just order whatever pasta dish sounds good to you and say that you want to sub the regular noodles for the "gluten free fusilli noodles" and they'd be happy to do that for you. You can tell it's an allergy and they'll do there best to avoid cross contamination. It is 2 dollars extra for the noodles
They served me gluten noodles. They even made a huge production over me ordering a gf meal to make sure everyone was aware. I haven't been this sick in over a year. They have an allergen menu but that doesn't mean they know what they're doing. AVOID this place!
Friendly staff and good service
Went the opening night and absolutely loved it! You can get any of their pasta dishes with gluten free noodles! They have wonderful salads too! I had a ceaser salad but remember to ask for no croutons. I have celiacs but not very bad, I get sick if I eat wheat not if my food comes in contact with it. They warn you when you order your food that they can't garuntee anything, therefore I wouldn't recommend it if your very sensitive.
Good gluten free pasta options with either rice noodles or gluten free fusilli pasta.
I did my research prior to coming here, so I knew they had a gluten-free menu, but I quizzed the girl taking my order anyway on how they prepare the gluten-free dishes. I knew I wanted the pad thai because it's naturally gluten-free, but they can also sub in gluten-free pasta for many of their other dishes. I told the cashier I have a gluten and dairy allergy, and asked them to cook my noodles in fresh water, and put an allergy alert on my order. She was very friendly and said they do that with all of their allergy orders. She seemed knowledgeable and I was so happy to be able to have pad thai again! It's also fast, cheap, and easy - overall a good experience.
I went with my aunt who has Celiac and even after an EXTENSIVE Conversation on the food safety (about 10 Minutes) with 2 Employees, they STILL Messed up and brought her meal with Wheat Pasta. She had just recently started eating GF and had taken a bite before I realized it Didn't LOOK Like GF pasta. The Redeeming factor was that the Manager was Very Nice and apologetic and replaced her meal, BUT she was Already Sick. So, that's kind of a mute point. There's No Going Back after giving someone the wrong thing and making them sick. We Won't go back
Questionable at best. They have so-called gluten free dishes, but they don't seem to have a clue about cross contamination. I won't risk it for my celiac daughter.
They have many gluten free options, they even offer a menu if you ask that has all the allergy free foods. They have several gluten free pastas available. They also will mark your food allergy sensitive and keep it from cross contamination! Love Noodles for Gluten Free!
I went to Noodles with my coworkers and researched ahead of time on the Internet and called the restaurant. They have many modifications you can do or you can get the pad thai which has 0 modifications needed. I went to noodles and ordered the pad thai. I asked them to cook it in a new batch of water in a freshly cleaned bowl and they said that they would accommodate and watch for cross contamination. At the end of my bowl, there was a wheat macaroni noodle. After I had eaten my entire meal. Needless to say the side effects were immense. I got very sick and will never return to noodles and company again. I highly advise you to talk to the manager when you go there if you choose to go to see if you can get their support.
I've found several regular noodles mixed in with my rice noodles. Be careful! Not safe for celiac or serious sensitivity.
Very great staff and helpful with GF options.
Delicious, very knowledgable, overall a great experience!
Gluten free fusilli pasta and rice noodles can be substituted in most entrees without sauce that has gluten it.
Felt horrible the rest of the day... Rice noodles were ok but there was a lack of knowledge among the staff.
Order is flagged with an Allergy Alert on the cash register and which allergy you have. Then the cashier tells the person preparing the food they have an allergy alert order to prepare. The menu is not visibly posted, you have to ask the cashier who has been very helpful and very careful to enter the order correctly. GF Chop Salad & GF Pad Thai both very good for a semi-fast food chain and I have not had a contamination problem.
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.
There are only a couple of gluten-free options, but they're good. The pad thai is great!
SUPER helpful with gluten intolerance! They will walk you through your options and have really great prices!
Pad Thai with shrimp is excellent! Owner knows all about gluten and will replace any dish with rice noodles. If you don't like something you can bring it back to him and he will cook you something else free!! Very friendly and excellent location!!
I love the med salad here. I get it at least once a week. I also omit olives, sub cheddar in for the feta. The dressing's tasty. Some options to try: tomato bisque soup, the med salad hold the pasta (it comes in it,) thai curry soup, chinese chop salad (wontons are probably gluten free, can be omitted,) caesar salad no croutons, seasonal salads (varies, check ingredients.) Dessert? rice krispy treats available, possibly gf rice cereal. If you are also dairy sensitive, thai curry soup and chinese chop salad are dairy free. Concerned about cross contamination? Avoid the asian items/rice noodles all together, they're probably cooked in the common water. If they weren't gluten contaminated, I'm confident gf would be listed on the menu as a highlight or selling point, much like vegetarian options are. However, it never hurts to ask for new water, new pot. Some places are happy to accommodate you, if you're upfront that you're willing to wait a few extra minutes.
Great gluten free options. Try the Shrimp Penne Pasta with rice noodles, it is amazing. Very friendly and helpful staff.
They have gluten free rice noodles that can be used for any type of noodle combination they have
WOW!!!! Just Wow! The staff is so nice and super accommodating. I have multiple food allergies and they made my food exactly to my specifications without complaint which is a rare occurance. The General Manager - Ellen - printed out their nutritional information for me without a request and dropped it off at our table. It took a little while to print but while she waited for the print out she came out and explained the menu and all of my options after apologizing for the slowness of the computer system. The other employees were also extremely nice Al even brought and picked up our dishes! Love it can't wait to come back!
Gluten free menu and knowledgable staff make this a friendly decent option for GF diners.
I didn't find anything to make a complete meal here
Great Thai Pad
Had the Penne Fresca and hoped they would use a gf penne pasta but they just substitute the rice noodles they use for the Pad Thai instead. Disappointing but not a big deal. The noodles and chicken were a bit dry, but not a deal breaker. The big problem is that there was clearly some cross contamination as I experienced an immediate reaction after I finished eating and ended up with a migraine later on (both symptoms that I only get when I eat gluten in a significant amount). Perhaps the noodles were cooked in the same water as regular noodles, I'm not sure, but I do know that I won't be back.
They are so careful here! Love them, best gluten free kitchen in town. They switch out pans, and the rice noodles are super yummy! I get sick with cross contamination easily - have never here! Would trust them for sure!
