    Extensive gluten free menu and very well trained and knowledgeable staff. They will ask you if you want gluten free bread brought to the table. Never had a problem there. Try the cobb salad with horseradish mustard dressing or the quesadilla appetizer which is big enough to share or eat as an entree. They have Angry Orchard Hard Cider, too, which is a great substitute for gluten-laden beers. Yum!

    Our first time. Pleasant atmosphere and great service. Waitress made note of my son's allergies the minute we mentioned it. I've never felt so worry-free eating out with my son before. The waitress was knowledgeable and if she want sure, she made sure to check for us. I didn't notice any allergic reactions - unfortunately my son's reactions are delayed so they are hard to pick up on. They did have a gf menu (with a kids menu section) and gf bread that was served while we ate the regular bread - I thought the gf bread tasted pretty good. The kid's menu also came with ice cream for dessert. It was gf & ef. Only four stars since it was our first time and we'll just have to keep trying to find out if my son's allergies are ok with it.

    So, I did get glutened here, but I really don't think it is something that normally happens. That is why I am still giving them a 4 star. Ordered the Ahi Tuna Wontons. Someone in the kitchen made a mistake and they put regular soy sauce on it. They actually caught the error, but not in time. The manager came out asked me how sensitive I was. I have celiac, so, pretty sensitive. He was very upset that it happened. Our whole meal was free and he took my number to call me the next day to see how I was. We are always taking chances when we go to any restaurant. I really appreciated their honesty and they really could have not said anything to me at all, butnthey made a point to come and talk to me and I was really disappointed, but I could tell they were all very disappointed too. Even the server was so apologetic. I would still recommend this place, but if you get any Asian flavored food, make sure it is GF soy sauce. Side note: The GF onion bread and oil dip is amazing.

    I got a carry-out and the pasta was already cold when I got it and the chicken was just a big over-cooked slab. The sauce was really salty and they put the potatoes in the same compartment so it was drowning in salty, lemon sauce.

    Waitress was helpful, but food came from a teenage food runner, not the manager or my waitress who I think said "no soy included" and ran away. I had to flag down my waitress to make sure the kitchen got the gluten allergy. She did, but still no manager. Food was gross. Chicken was like rubber. This is the first time I've ever sent my food back in a restaurant and it was my birthday. I've been to other locations and had better luck, but I won't be returning here.

    My very first restaurant experience after my celiac diagnosis was at the Glen Mills, PA location. Our server immediately noticed my GF menu and was kind, knowledgable, and helpful. He made recommendations (which I followed) and the food was delicious. I had the grilled chicken caprese. The food runner delivered my food by saying "here is your GF chicken caprese," which I appreciated. From start to finish I felt as though my allergy was being considered and taken seriously.

    NYAJ is one of the few chains I feel confident eating at when traveling. This location was no exception; friendly staff and seamless accommodation. Waiter brought gf bread to the table with a separate dipping sauce dish without being asked, and a different person brought out the gf meals separate from the regular ones. Would have been five stars if the sandwich was as good as I've had at other locations. The grilled chicken was a bit dry and there was a single pale tomato slice instead of the sundried tomatoes advertised. Still, I'm always happy to be eating somewhere safe!

    We go to the Glen Mills, PA location. They really try here. We don't usually like chain restaurants but we have found they really try to provide fresh, imaginatively prepared food suitable for those with celiac. I have celiac and have eaten there numerous times and have never had any problems afterwards.

    My family has been eating at Not Your Average Joes for years, and when I was recently diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, we found out about the gluten free menu! There are so many great options and even some you won't find on the regular menu! They also give you a really good gluten free roll. I'd highly recommend the salads, the gluten free chicken picatta, or the pesto gnocchi (not sure if this was a summer special or not.)

    We were visiting the area and found the this great restaurant. They have gluten free onion roll bread and an olive oil/Parmesan dip that is awesome. I would come back just for the bread/dip. I ordered the Burger and green beans. Burger was great the green beans were fair. I also ordered a GF Carrot Cake to take home. Friends that did not eat GF eat the Mustard Crusted Chicken and said it was great. Will definitely come back if ever in the area.

    The food was great! I am gluten sensitive and got a plate of Mac and cheese with grilled chicken which was terrific and my brother who has celiac had a burger with a side of Mac and cheese. The only reason I'm giving a 4/5 is because the service was pretty slow considering it was later and their were very few others in the restaurant. 👍👍

One of the best burgers I've ever had and the bacon so good! The main thing I liked about the chicken was the bread. They had to cut the chicken in half and double it up. Four stars is because I

    I've been gluten free for about a year but my mom has been gluten free for over a decade so I've been aware and experiencing gluten free for a while, Not Your Average Joe's has, by far, THE best gluten free bread I have ever tasted. All of the food is super fresh and abounds with flavor. They are also VERY accommodating with any food allergy, wheat, dairy, etc. I wish we had one in my home town in Florida, but good thing they don't, my kitchen would fall into disuse.

    Kudos for having a GF menu, but very confusing when I ordered off it and the waitress told me someone might come out to tell me they can't make the meal. Luckily that didn't happen, but stressful and embarrassing when eating with non-GF diners... Don't want to draw extra attention to my dietary limitations. The chicken caprese I had was good, but left me hungry. As a very small woman, that never happens to me.

    The bread with the dipping oil was worth the visit. I had the scallops which were very good but if it wasn't for the bread I would have left hungry as it was a very small meal. The other diners with me weren't as happy with their meals (not gluten free meals). The salmon was dry (which I have had before and I agree) and I was told the beef dish was tough.

    The food was great, plenty of gluten free options, including dessert. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and very considerate about Celiac. They brought out gluten free bread to start with--it was awesome. My young daughter is the one who has Celiac, so she was disappointed not to see gf fries, but they said they could make some for us in a pan. It was very busy, yet the manager came over and let us know he knew we were eating from the gf menu and they would take it seriously and pay special attention to our food preparation. The combination of their attention to gf needs and delicious food means we will definitely be back!
