Super yummy, super accommodating!
I went to the one in Needham, MA. They have this amazing warm GF roll with carmelized onions baked on top (it reminded me of a biali). It was amazing. They gave me one to eat while waiting for my food and my chicken sandwich was served on one as well. It was delicious!! Although they should offer a separate plate of dipping oil and garlic. I shared the same one that my husband dipped into w his bread thinking I was staying on my side of the plate. Not good, dumb on my part for not asking. The wait staff are not allowed to bring any GF dishes to the table, so there is no cross contamination or mistakes. The chef brings it. Great place. Great service.
Loved the GF bread and oil here! Don't get the Ahi tuna roll, it comes out hot. So weird. My server didn't know what gluten was since he was too concerned to give me the bacon I ordered for my cheese burger and asked me if I was sure I could have it. At least he was concerned.
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!
Well it may be GF friendly BUT my husband and I ordered from the GF menu and get had an reaction. He missed 2 days of work. I complained, and Erik the regional manager personally delivered a $100 gift certificate which was nice of him but still bit weary of giving it another try to be honest.
Not Your Average Joe's was definitely a good experience. I was so excited to get rolls before my meal like everyone else always does. I've never been to a restaurant that offer gluten free rolls before a meal. That alone was enough for five stars, because of the extra thought that went into the planning of the gf menu. Besides the rolls, my meal was excellent. I got the turkey blt. The turkey was cooked perfectly and the bread was delicious. the best part was that I did not get glutened!
Awesome! Best GF restaurant I have been to. The whole staff is very knowledgeable about GF and good allergies. They have a great GF menu. They have delicious GF bread. If you ask they will changeout the fryer oil and you can have fries cooked in fresh gf oil. They take food allergies and gf very seriously.
Wonderful GF menu. Loved the Gluten free Mac and cheese!
Although Joe's offers a nice GF menu, I was not a fan of their caramelized onion rolls which is their bread alternative. My server was not very knowledgable with the gluten free options or which items of these were dairy free. Hopefully their staff will become more knowledgable and they will have other bread options soon!
I fell in love with this place instantly. I am a very sensitive celiac and was good to go here. For the first time in about 2 years I had bread and dipping oil. It was unbelievably good. They make all their own gfree bread. I had the burger with a gfree bun. Their bread and buns are some of the best gfree breads I've ever had. Burger was excellent. They had heir own gluten free menu. Just love this place!!!!!
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.
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!
Was so excited that I could continue eating at NYAJs after being diagnosed with Celiac. Their food is delicious and service is usually great. The last time I went there were some VERY minor issues - no cross contamination; I think it was just a new wait staffer who didn't remember my roll, separate dipping oil, etc. The on duty manager was close by and assisted - polite and kind as always! Love this place.
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.
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.
So good! First, it was nice to have my own roll and oil to dip in, instead if having to watch everyone eat their rolls! I had a chicken sandwich with a side salad. The chicken sandwich was flavorful and the roll was onion and tasted great!! The salad with Italian dressing was also good! I'd go back again:-)
Great choices for dinner, and very aware of cross contamination. I looked longingly at the amazing cheese and oil dip they always bring out, but we haven't been able to eat in years. The waitress then asked if we wanted some GF rolls to dip in it! They had the best GF rolls we've had in a long time!
So careful not to cross contaminate!! Give you a gf onion roll and seperate dipping oil. Food is brought over by the manager also. I had the chicken piccata with gf pasta and it was so good my mom was questioning if it was gf or not until she could taste the difference! There is gluten free done good and gluten free done right. Usually gluten free done right isn't good and gluten free done good isn't done right, somehow they managed to make it good and right! Really is not the average gluten free menu like it says!
Seperate GF menu, with lots of options. Make sure you get the pre-meal GF bread & oil/cheese!
We love this restaurant! They made my son fresh potato cut French fries pan fried separately. Lots of options and everyone is so helpful!
Exceeded my expectations!! Gluten free onion bread with their dipping sauce and a whole gluten free menu! Chicken piccata was wonderful & the staff was pleasing! Must go for celiacs
Many excellent GF options and the staff always understands "celiac" and "need to be very careful" and I did not have to belabor the point. LOL Had a giant family birthday party here back in January (i was visiting again) and 3 of us are GF. Ease in ordering, careful attention to prep....and good food. Love the Joe's. Wish I had one near me in NY.
One of my favorite gluten free menus. The onion rolls and olive oil/herb dip are such a great way to start the meal. If I did not know it was GF I would not have known the difference. Large gluten free menu. I had a hamburger which was served hot and delicious. A manager brings every gluten free item to the table which makes me think they have a very good understanding of cross contamination and take no chances.
Very nice menu. Great service. Great quality!
We just ate there tonight... amazing enough to motivate me to sit down and review them immediately! We were given fresh and hot gluten free bread and dipping oil as soon as we identified ourselves as gluten free. The gluten free menu is amazing and contains more options that I have ever seen at a restaurant.. we all split the Salmon, the Rosemary Scallops, Chicken Quesadilla (yes- gluten free!), and a delicious grapefruit sorbet. It was amazing- my six year old even had a hamburger on a gluten free bun and was beyond thrilled. The prices were reasonable and the food was simply beyond compare!!!!!!!!!!
I went with 5 people, obviously the only one with the gluten free menu. The waitress saw it and asked if I had a gluten intolerance and I said I have celiac disease. Her answer was so amazing " ok, we'll take good care of you." Free gluten free rolls with dipping sauce. Quesadilla was amazing. They made me feel so relaxed. The menu is pretty good too, it took me a while to choose because i had 4 things I wanted. The only negative thing was that they don't have gf french fries but oh well. Great experience!
Great menu selection available online to preview the choices. Wonderful soft muffin/roll for the dipping oil. Gave me my own separate oil so no cross contamination! Very polite and attentive waitress. Owner of franchise stopped by to see if we needed anything else! Delicious dinner, extra roll for no charge. A+ service and meal
Excellent ! Especially the gluten free bread at the beginning !
excellent gluten free menu and personal service to avoid cross contamination. Worry free dining.
I was given exceptional service! My waitress was so kind, and my food was brought over by the manager. I ordered a Waldorf salad with low-cal Zinfandel dressing on the side. I didn't have the dressing, but the salad was wonderful! I was also given a a gfree onion roll (they are Gillian's brand). It was obviously microwaved, but it was still good. I was also given my own dipping oil. I didn't try it, so I don't know if it is any different from their regular dipping oil. Overall, pretty good place to eat out. Lots of options on the menu.
Great food, great menu
Very good gluten free options. They have gluten free dinner rolls available. Only one dessert, hopefully that will change! I love NYAJ!
The gluten free menu provides variety and does make someone with a gluten allergy feel welcome. I enjoyed the rosemary skewered scallops. They were terrific. The atmosphere is a bit loud & crowded. Very popular place on a Friday evening.
could use more gf dessert options.
I've ordered most everything on the GF menu and it's delicious! There are many choices, including seafood, chicken and steak. The guacamole appetizer is fantastic! NYAJ takes GF eating very seriously, so I know I'll never have any issues.
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.
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.
The chain is good but not this location. My son order a hamburger with just ketchup and it came with pickles sent it back and they just took the pickles off, well we could have done that if that would have worked but he hates pickles that the juice they leave behind.
The wait staff isn't very knowledgeable. I ordered French fries, and the waitress came back with our food, but no fries, telling me they weren't gluten free. Thy would have been a nice thing to know before hand so I could order a different side. The food was decent but nothing special.
Not truly gluten free.... They told me on the phone they had dinner rolls when I arrived they brings a gluten free hamburg bun into pieces for my dipping....dish was tasty but felt like 2nd rate not going out of their way more than they have to...waitress gets one star sure to talking with other waitresses everytime we needed her..she would see is teaching avg look other way....with very little effort they could be 4 or 5 stars.
Decent sized GF menu consisting of mostly sandwiches and salads. GF toasted onion roll for sandwiches was soft & chewy, same bun is used as a dinner roll. Waitstaff very attentive. Had turkey club sandwich with real oven baked turkey, not deli meat, but was a little under seasoned. Would go back though.
Excellent GF menu, and strict GF policy. The manager carried all of my dishes over while the server carried everything else, which guaranteed no cross-contamination. As soon as I ordered an entree off the GF menu, the manager came over and I asked if I wanted the GF bread & oil before my meal. Felt safe eating here, and got a great meal!
Servers well versed with gluten intolerance
Fantastic! Extensive GF menu and all of the staff and mgmt are super conscious. It's my go-to place for dining!!
They are GREAT at accommodating people who need to eat gluten free. I recently went there for the first time with my best friend and was more than pleased to find out that they not only have an entire gluten free menu but they also bake you your own gluten free complimentary roll to dip in oil like everyone else. Not to mention they also have gluten free beer. I HIGHLY recommend trying it out
Nice to have a gluten free roll to dip.
Extensive gluten free menu and helpful staff.
Dedicated GF menu, educated staff, GF rolls, excellent cocktails, good vibe.
Great gluten free options and accommodating staff.
We go here a lot and recently discovered NYAJs is a great place for GF. My mother in law was in town and thought the meal was great. The manager also told us the product names so we could buy them at WholeFoods.
