    Food was great, staff seems knowledgable, love the gluten free bread they give you before the meal!!!! There is a separate gluten free menu with a decent amount of options. I have never had any issues at any of their locations.

    I was really excited to eat here when I saw 5 stars from people. Looked at the menu and I was even more excited! I was certainly not disappointed. My own gluten free bread, gluten free rolls and gluten free carrot cake!!

    I went to the Kentland's location of Not Your Average Joe's and fell in love! They not only have a gluten free menu, but they also bring out a GF bread basket when you first sit down with this amazing garlic butter dip. I ordered the gluten free cheeseburger and asked if I could have french fries with it. It's not on their menu, but they offered to bake the french fries for me so as to not fry them and contaminate them in any way. It took longer and they weren't ask crispy, but I enjoyed them! Their food is amazing and you also get a free meal and dessert for your birthday if you sign up for their members club email. It's now my favorite restaurant!

    Food was great. Service was good too. Had the scallop appetizer which was excellent. Ordered the house salad in the small size. They delivered the large size. Just so much iceberg lettuce one person can it. Ranch dressing is the "real" deal. I will be back. Gotta try the burgers on gluten free bun.

    NYAJ is great. they work hard to accommodate my son's gluten allergy and will make him things not on the menu such as grilled cheese. we go a lot because of their knowledge of food allergies.

    Great place, but can get very busy at times especially on weekends. They have a pretty large gluten free menu. They will also bring out dipping sauce with gluten free bread. The food is fantastic. The waitress we had was very nice and knowledgeable about gluten free. They also have gluten free pasta.

    The caramelized onion roll is really good, but I wouldn't go there for anything else. The fries are not GF, and the garlic mashed potatoes that I had to eat instead tasted like they came out of a box. Definitely not one of my best gluten-free experiences. I definitely will not be going back.

    Seriously the best place! Our server was amazing, knew about crosscontamination, celiac, allergies, everything. The bread is DELICIOUS, best gluten free bread I've had, by Gilligan's Foods. He even gave us a couple to take home. Amazing food, service, and atmosphere.

    8/9/15 they have added GF Mac and cheese to kids menu and GF carrot cake to dessert options. 9/21/13 We've had takeout and ate at the restaurant at least a dozen times over the past year and we've had mixed experiences (missing items from takeout) but I'll bump up my rating because they appear to be improving. 10/25/12 GF rolls, separate GF menu. Not much for GF dessert except sorbet. Not much for my daughter except a burger (on GF bun). Waitress wouldn't bring out Hoodsie for her because she thought it was not GF (but it is according to Hood). 3 stars for a family 4 if you go w/o kids.

    The Gfree bread and garlic/cheese olive oil dip is such a treat and makes me sooo happy. They have a pretty large gluten free menu. The Thai Lettuce Chicken Wraps for an appetizer are light and healthy. I sometimes have them as my meal. Jambalaya is the perfect amount of spicy. Cobb salad is decent. Chicken piccata is a creamy pasta dish that is great in fall / winter months. I have never had a bad meal or experience here.

    Have been to this chain before and had excellent service and food, however, this location lacks. Our server was very careless about me being gluten free. He thought I could use the same dip plate for my bread as the rest of my party and overall just provided bad service. I would try a different NYAJ.

The bread was delicious and soft and they gave me my own separate dipping plate which shows how knowledgable they are about cross contamination. I had chicken piccata as my main and it was delicious.

    We called before choosing to go there. And we got Amy the manager on the phone. Explained I have celiac and she knew exactly what it was and assured us they take all necessary precautions. She told us to ask for her when we got there which we did. We had a great waitress in Jen who also was well versed with celiac and cross contamination. They took our order ( best chicken sandwich since I have been diagnosed) brought to the chef made sure chef did all proper procedures! They had Titos for a drink and they were so kind they gave us a free gf and dairy free dessert sorbet with fruit. DELICIOUS! Felt very comfortable because they made me feel comfortable. It's about an hour away from home but I will make the trip back! Thank you Jen and Amy. Ask for them if you go
