All the Maddio's I've been to have had great GF crust! And they always ask if it's just a preference, or health reasons.
I really wanted to love this place. We took our kids in while visiting Atlanta. It was awesome that they had gluten free kid sizes. However, the gentleman who was preparing our pizza left much to be desired. He didn't seem at all consistent in the proportions he used from pizza to pizza. It seemed like he used the same amount of toppings on the extra-large pizza as he did on the small pizza. The sauce was spread on really un-evenly (there wasn't even really a layer of sauce on 40% of it), and when our pizzas came out they were so lumpy in spots that those spots were burned black & crisp. The people working didn't seem interested in their customers either. The un-burnt crust itself was good, and the guy did ask if gluten free was allergy or preference. When I told him it was allergy for me he changed his gloves. Maybe they just had an off-day for us.
I love that they have a kids GF pizza. My daughter loved it and so did I (I got my own with more toppings than just cheese!)
Huge fan of Maddio's! I prefer the GF crust over regular. I ordered it consistently before I even knew I needed to be GF. You should take care with some toppings, but staff is friendly & well trained. New gloves & clean pans every time.
Love this place. They are the friendliest people ever. Always act happy to see me, change their gloves the minute I walk in. It's so nice not to feel like a burden for my special dietary needs!!
GF pizza was awesome! Super crispy crust and tasty toppings. Lots of good cheese!
If you like thin crust pizza then you will definitely like Maddios GF pizza crust. It was very thin and tastes like normal pizza. I found that it was difficult to cut with the dull knives in the dining room so I had to pick it up. Not my favorite, but I'm weird like that. I would definitely eat it again!
BEST PIZZA!!! My daughter is Celiac and they have fresh GF dough as a choice---as anyone with this problem knows it is VERY hard to find good tasting pizza---THEY HAVE HIT A HOMERUN!!!!! THANK YOU UNCLE MADDIO'S!!!!
Great gf pizza crust. I like thin crust so I enjoyed their crust!
The food is delicious but the service is disappointing. When I alerted the staff to my allergy he rolled his eyes. On a previous visit they made sure to use new ingredients and avoid the ones that has cross contamination. He obviously did not want to make the extra effort to grab the fresh ingredients from behind the counter. He became short and rude. I apologized for the inconvenience but it didn't make a difference. I was obviously upset about how he was acting so other staff was very friendly to me. However, in the end he left ingredients off of my pizza and they put a cracker in my salad... After he made a huge deal about it being an inconvenience to make things gluten free. I left before I checked and now I can't eat half of my meal. I would not trust the gluten free status of this location.
Awesome! My daughter has Celiac Disease and they are very diligent in preparing gluten free food. Here's the thing. Our food was excellent, but on this Friday night (Easter Weekend), five of their employees did not show up for work, and they only had the Manager and an outstanding pizza maker. These two have restored my hope in America. They were working like crazy and smiling the entire time. Seriously, I hope everyone who reads this will give them a visit. Great place, and I never give higher than three stars.
Fantastic pizza! And I mean the gluten free pizza is fantastic!! They ask if gluten free is an allergy or a preference and then proceed with all new ingredients and gloves and work station. They get it!! The flavors of the pizza are fantastic and they have a smaller size gf pizza so that my non celiac hubby can get what he wants too. Best staff Ever and delicious food. We are here two days in a row and will be back!!
They always have a problem with using new sauce and cheese
I have celiac disease and this restaurant was a great find. The staff was professional and knowledgeable. I had a delicious veggie pizza on a gluten free crust and a gluten free Greek salad. Both were incredibly delicious! My server asked if I needed to have gluten free and I said that I did. She immediately went and changed her gloves and took the vegetables that went on my pizza from a different place she also went into the back and got my salad from a different place. I highly recommend this restaurant. I live in Myrtle Beach South Carolina and I wish we had an uncle maddio's by me. I will be making trips to Charleston just for their food.
This location went above and beyond in trying to assure that my child's food was gluten free and suffered no cross contamination. In fact, they went to measureses beyond any restaurant I have encountered in the 2 yrs of GF dining. Counters cleaned, gloves changed, ingredients reviewed, prep utensils changed, fresh closed non cross contaminated ingredients retrieved from the fridge. Tasty safe pizza! Thank you, what a great staff!
Absolutely love this place!! Perfect lunch spot for celiacs or anyone with a gluten intolerance. They get separate toppings, clean down the counter, change gloves, and many more protocols to prevent cross contamination once you say gluten free. Their menu is clearly marked, and the crust is great!! The ingredients taste super fresh! They are consistent and every person who has helped me has been trained to a t.
Food was good and staff was helpful. This is like Chipotle, only it is pizza rather than Mexican. From what I was told this is a franchise out of ATL. It was pricier than Pie Five, which is a competing franchise in this space. @ Uncle Maddio's you get three toppings at no charge and then it is $.50 per topping.
Our pizzas were incredible, not to mention affordable. The staff was amazing and very helpful. They went out of their way to assure there was no cross contamination, and that our allergies were taken seriously. We are HUGE fans. What a relief to have a place to go and not worry about getting sick. Great atmosphere and staff. We will certainly be back soon!
Delicious pizza and no celiac reaction. Great find!
We were passing through the area over the Thanksgiving weekend and were feeling pretty "hangry." Traveling with gluten sensitivity is always so stressful! Grabbed a couple of Uncle Maddio's GF pizzas and and felt great! Even our non-GF daughter loved them! Looks to be our new "go-to" stop when around Cranberry.
They use completely different ingredients and change their plastic gloves for anyone who wants gluten free pizza. They can also make great gluten free pizza with goat cheese if you ask. We eat here regularly and never have a problem. Great pizza and personable staff.
Not only do they have GF pizza, they take it really seriously. Cleaned the prep area, used different topping containers from the back, server changed his gloves. They were not playing. It was awesome. And I was not glutened so it worked...and now I know I can have pizza again every now & then. Pretty cool! Ps - the guy there is the one whole told me about this app! Another win!
These folks are incredible! They scrape and clean the working surfaces before preparing the GF pizza. And, they pull the toppings from a non-contaminated area. When I commented about the thoroughness of their process, the young man in the prep area said, "It's because we care."
Although the effort for gluten free is there, this place does not know what it means for cross contamination. They use the same sauce spoons for all the pizzas and so you watch them touch wheat dough and then use the same one with the same sauce on the gluten free one. All the sides are just laid out and they are not fresh. I understand that to make the food process faster they do it this way, but all the sides were getting into one another. It was messy. For someone who has to be very careful about what they eat (for me I am gluten and dairy free) this is not the place for them. If gluten free is just preference then you will probable be fine. They are short staffed so everyone was stressed and really could not put effort into making the food right. This place was dirty because everyone was so busy trying to keep up with orders. The salad making station was just as messy as the side station. The effort was there, with keeping the allergy gluten free crust in a different place, that was nice. And they did switch gloves so that was good too. This place just isn't there yet with their food prep places. I would suggest to them, to hire more people to keep up with the business and to really make sure that things are being cleaned up. Also to have the gluten free pizzas made in a whole different and separate station. So all your sauces and spoons are separate and the sides what you just touched stuff with wheat hands don't come into contact with the gluten free options.
The pizza is good but you have to carefully watch them. I watched them use the same spoon on my pizza as they used to spread toppings on the wheat pizza. We went back over to ask them to do a new pizza. I think the girl making the pizza was new, the others seemed to understand immediately when we asked. I didn't get sick (since they made a new one) but won't feel comfortable here unless I watch the whole process to ensure mistakes aren't made.
Super tasty crust, crispy and delicious! Ordered the BBQ special pizza, which was amazing. They wiped the counters down and asked if this was for an allergy or preference. I have severe Celiac disease and had no issues at all. It was even good reheated.
