    Knowledgeable staff who changed their gloves and provide excellent pizza. Shared kitchen. Style is that of Subway, you pick your toppings. Beyond delicious!

    Update: We came back to Jason's for lunch today. Gluten free food was prepared and delivered by a manager- the same person from start to finish. He stayed by us while we checked the order for accuracy. Item was clearly marked with gluten free sticker and brought in to go container to mark it as specialty. Bread is Udi's brand- which we like better than any other commercial bread. Gluten free menu is present in restaurant. Order was correct, food high quality with great taste. We will go back and continue to look for the process improvements offered by Brad. Update: I just got off the phone with the supervisor there: Brad. He's the one who answers to corporate Jason's Deli. I explained to him all my concerns and issues with our service. He has addressed issues and temporarily has only managers handling gluten free orders in an effort to provide safety to us until he is positive that his staff understands why it is such a concern. I have agreed to give them one more chance- and I will update again once we go in. Original review: Jason's has a specialized space including case with knives/prep area. The food tastes great but they don't check orders or know why gluten is such a big deal. A great menu but miscommunication and lack of common customer service reign high here. We've had more than 5 experiences there and 90% of the time there's something wrong with the gluten free order. We've received regular bread when buying gluten free. Management doesn't care about what they are doing or the importance of their area. It's a shame this location is such a disaster, because generally Jason's is great. Just go elsewhere!

    I am always disturbed by GF menus that are nothing but "without". Eating gluten free here is eating burgers without the bun, salad without ingredients, and sandwiches without bread. So we turned around and left. Why pay so much for a without when all the yelp reviews insist the bun made the item? Nope.

    They offer gluten free pizza in 1 size. I think it's the same frozen brand offered several places- on the aluminum foil tray. So it's decent pizza. Last night was the first time that I felt like the waitress had NO clue. She brought one pizza server for both gluten free and regular pizzas at our table. And then questioned why we didn't want to share. She didn't get cross contamination, but did go get the other server. I always feel it's the responsibility of the company to train all staff if they offer gluten free. I have been to this location and hit knowledgeable staff, but not tonight. They would have been 4 stars but for the waitress not knowing GF.

    Gluten free menu with chefs/staff conscious of gluten free needs.

    Gluten free section is growing every time I go there. They work hard to make it the best in town! They even have a GF item suggestion box.

    Another crumbly mess of a roll. Flavor is off. I stick with salads.

    Not a restaurant, but a grocer. Highly knowledgable, well versed. They even clearly mark (with dot stickers) their products. Everything I've got there has been good.

    We've gone here many times without issue. They have grilled nuggets on their kids menu and the manager told me that their fries are in a separate fryer than chicken. Normally I get fruit cup and grilled nuggets. It's the only fast food option we go to regularly. I often check their website- which is helpful!

    They have options for those who are GF. Including GF fries (ask for no seasoning) and cook their fries in a separate fryer. The bun is great. They are knowledgable and helpful. They update their GF menu often- so it does come in a big allergen binder. It's definitely a good option in our small GF options.

    Staff is trained, the option is there. It's the same great flavor as pre-GF. I was fine with the crumbly bun before I had Red Robin's. Now that I know the difference, I can't give them 5 stars. But they are good!

    It's that frozen crust served on aluminum foil pan. Staff is untrained and I would bet money on cross contamination.

    I don't like GF menus that result in this "without xx" or "no sauce". That's not a gluten free menu. I've had good experiences here as far as basics- salad "without croutons", steak, and vegetables "without seasoning". Their chocolate thunder down under is a GF dessert and it's yummy! I have had issues with their staff being poorly trained (including a waitress insisting their bread was gluten free). Overall, we've never been sick from cross contamination, so I'm sticking middle of the road!

    A small menu which always seems to result in over cooked mushy corn pasta.

  • Branya's Bakery

    So we need to clarify- this is not gluten free, but WITHOUT gluten. The folks working there were very specific about that. It's a real working bakery so the chance of cross contamination is HIGH. However, the oil was new for the donuts so we did give those a try. Flavor wasn't bad, still that crumbly gluten-free existence. Bread was some of the worst I've had. Yuck! Crumbly and flavorless. We got some cookies and I felt they were very overpriced. Again, super crumbly, a mess all over the place. To the point that every time I tried to pick one up, it broke in pieces. Flavor was there but of the multiple varieties we tasted the flavor was pretty much the same for every one. There are better options for gluten free in the area. Avoid Branya's.

    Clean, friendly staff. Appear knowledgable about gluten free needs. My 4 year old is a Celiac and got some of the fluffiest pancakes. Flavor was great! A great place for everyone. Next time we are in town, we will be back!

    They have a great menu and table bread! The last few visits they haven't offered table bread, but I always ask. It's $1 per piece, so be careful! Flavors are good, and staff is helpful!
