    Delicious gf food! The onion-baked bulky rolls are amazing and might make you cry if you've been pining for good-quality bread since going gf. The online app is terribly problematic: don't use it. You can call in as early as 9am tho they dont open until 11:30am

    On 10.3.15, I ordered the Gluten free green machine pesto pasta to go. While my meal was labeled gf and with my first name, within an hour of eating, I was violently ill with obvious gluten poisoning. It became so bad, I passed out and my husband called 911. I was in the ER for hours as they attempted to control my symptoms and rehydrate. The next day, weak but functioning, I called and described my meal. Both the chef and the manager confirmed that the gf pasta should have been a penne style, while what I ate was a curly cavatapi (sp?) full of gluten. They sent me $75 gift card, as if I would ever trust them again. Not to mention that it barely covered the cost of our meal, to say nothing of copays for ER and ambulance ride. No one ever followed up with me, either to discuss how we can put checks and balances in place so this never happens to anyone else. Appalling. Please do not take your life into your hands by eating here.

    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.

    There is a separate gluten free menu with a variety of meal options, including burgers on GF buns (no fries though). They serve warm, GF onion bread when the wheaty bread comes out, and provide separate dipping sauce. They seem to 'get it' as far as preventing cross contamination goes.

    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. 👍👍

    I ate there twice in the span of two days and also got a to go order. First time in three years I've been able to have bread to dip in oil and it was the best! The bun didn't hold up but it was the best tasting and even reheated well in the microwave. After eating a basket of bread I could only eat half my sandwiches. 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

Scallops are perfectly cooked. Finished evening with carrot cake that although waiter said was from outside vendor was Delish and we had no issues. Highly recommend!

    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!

Always respectful managers who bring out her food, to servers who do a really good job of understanding the cross contamination aspect of the disease. Their regular food is good as well.

    One of my top two favorite places!! I've never had a bad meal or experience here. Their gluten-free bread is to die for and their gluten-free menu goes on for miles. The management is very concerned with gluten-free customers and usually bring the meals to you. I only got sick once, which was my own fault. I ordered the side of rice which has dairy in it; and I am also lactose intolerant! Whoops. Other than that there is nothing to complain about. Their takeout is just as consistent as their eat-in service. Never had any CC issues, although they sometimes forget to take cheese out of my order! The Waldorf salad and Grilled Chicken Sandwich are my favorites! Highly recommended.

    Chef brought out my meal. Waitress was also knowledgable and brought me out separate bread and oil (which was delicious- that was enough to get me to come back). Pasta was good- but I wasn't in love with the sauce. Pretty sure that was a palate thing and had nothing to do with how it was made. Menu is rather small, I'll be back!
