They have a brochure or pamphlet with nutritional information. You just have to ask for it.. Some locations know exactly what you talking about and others may not. (At least in my experience). I now know the items I can have and my "go to" items. The ranch is GF! That was surprising to me but made me a happy camper. ;) They are doing more to cater to GF. Of course if you are ultra sensitive and have celiac there is going to be possibility with cross contamination but that's the gamble with dining out unfortunately.
This was always a go-to place for my family, but in the past few months they have become so much more gluten friendly. They have recently labeled all of their food items, including salad dressings, so it is very clear which ones are gluten free. For the first time, 1 of the 3 pre-made salads are gluten-free, and I am hoping this continues to be the case. The chili is currently the only soup that is gluten free; however, i appreciate that they now have a gluten free muffin on the permanent menu it seems, and they are actually really good!! My husband and kids, who aren't gluten intolerant, love the gf muffins too!
There was only 1 soup that was gluten free, the chili. The muffins that were labeled gluten-friendly were in fact gluten filled muffins. There were oats on the top and when we inquired to make sure the IATA they were using gluten free, the staff said they were not oats but chia seeds. There's a big difference between oats and chia seeds. There's is a real nice salad buffet offering and a make your own baked potato area.
GF ranch!!!!! Yum! Best ever! They will totally tell you every ingredient if you ask. Super fresh every time. I gave been going since I was little and have never been disappointed.
This location is completely oblivious to what GF even means/is. If it wasn't for the corporate website having which monthly specials are gluten free, I usually would have to ask them for the ingredients list for everything bc no one knows off the top of their heads which items are GF. And on top of all of that, they can impatient/weird when u ask for the ingredients or allergy information. I usually have chili and lots of salad (obviously since it's a hug salad bar). Luckily I can have the frozen yogurt dessert! But it's a tease when they walk around giving fresh baked cookies and you can't have it :/
Souplantation is my family's favorite restaurant. For the price you can't beat the variety and quality. However, I REALLY would like to see them add more GF items. They've made some additions recently and all of their salad dressings are GF, but usually most of the soups are not, and you can never go near the pasta, pizza, or bread items. There's still enough there to make a full meal but it gets kind of old getting the same things every time- salad, chili, potato...
After talking with a manager here to clarify if there is gluten free items I was told their chili was gluten free. What he failed to mention is it has no gluten free ingredients and that they don't follow the cross contamination protocols. So technically this place is not gluten free.
Definitely not a gluten free place at all it should not be on here it is a buffet!!
Soup menu rotates monthly. Check online for this months options. Extensive soup variety, loaded salad bar, baked potato bar and GF soft serve frozen yogurt. Chocolate sauce and Carmel sauce also GF!
Souplantation is a great place to eat for healthy options! BUT if you're GF you're navigating it blindly. Their salad bar has high cross contamination possibility. And their "fun" foods (after the salad bar) are not labeled to know if things are safe to eat (GF).
Even though they do not have a gluten free menu they have plenty of gluten free choices. We have been eating at Souplantation for over 12 years and the transition to gluten free was easy.
