Almost everything here is GF aside from pita and tortillas. The manager helped us and was very conscientious about our GF needs. He changed his gloves, had our meat cooked in a separate pan, got our sauces from fresh containers in the back, etc without me even having to ask. They offer GF pita at a slight upcharge and already had it prepackaged in foil to prevent cross contamination.

Review


I had a plate with the rice and a gyro with fries.

I removed the fries cuz I was skeptical because they share the frier with the mediterinian brown ball thing (forgot the name).

3 hours later and I feel pretty good. No senses of being glutened.

UPDATE

My stomach started to feel really sick for the rest of Sunday and I felt gluten symptoms like a sore stomach. If you’re a celiac, stay away from this place. It’s bad.

Great quality gluten free Greek food in a casual atmosphere. The GF pita bread is heated in aluminum foil to prevent cross contamination. Let the staff know if you have a serious allergy or Celiac. If asked, they will change their gloves, cut the meat fresh for you and pull out a new tzatziki sauce (if you are worried about cross contamination).

Celiac friendly?

Yes
