They call their menu “gluten freedom”. They state their daughter is gluten free and “they get it.”

I haven’t had a that good of a burger in a very long time. They offer more than one choice of bread for their sandwiches.

It is not clear if the staff have any special training for allergy food handling. I have eaten here many times without issue. It’s a bit odd that your choices for gluten free slices bread are white and wheat! I often try to correct them to say multi-grain instead of wheat. Once had a long conversation with one of the managers about the bread. Definitely GF and they seem to care. But I would have to say go at your own risk.

Dedicated toaster and a nice selection! Their website says there is some chance of contamination due to human error, but they seem to get it. No reactions so far.

The West Chicago location's absolutely rude as can be. The manager there is by far the rudest. They say that they're knowledgeable about gluten allergies but they're not. I'd go somewhere else instead of this one.

The knowledge and quality of the food is not consistent. Sometimes they understand gluten free and sometimes they kind of flake out about it and have to be reminded. The sandwiches are not as good as they used to be. Sad...

Staff was not friendly about the gluten free option, or very knowledgeable. Nothing on the menu board suggested GF was an option, it was majorly secretive, and when I asked the gal seemed annoyed I wanted to see the menu. Would be nive to have safe side options to accompany a meal.

Augustino's carries Udi's for sandwiches, hot dog buns, hamburger buns and even pizza crusts! They also have sub sandwich rolls. They do not have a dedicated fryer for french fries. They are knowledgable enough to give you condiment packets rather than cross contaminating jars of condiments.

They have 4 different kids of gluten free bread AND a dedicated gluten free toaster. They also have bagged certified GF potato chips. The food was delicious and highly recommend. The owners daughter has a severe wheat allergy so they understand!

They take GF seriously so I would feel safe if I was very sensitive.

This was an every Saturday place years ago and I enjoyed their beef, sausage, grinders, and turkey burgers in those pre-GF days.

GF bread is very good but the up charge makes value proposition tougher. Suddenly a grinder can become a $10 sandwich. This bread up charge is not unique to Augies but seems like a bigger deal when you add the GF charge to a relatively cheap meal. No separate frier so now French fries.

Did not try the GF pizza.

Same great sandwich toppings I enjoyed in my pre-GF days.

If you have a taste for an outstanding sub, this is the place.
