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:-)
