Picked up GF take-out pizza. Tiny & expensive, did not love the flavor. Disappointing service.

My girlfriend had the pizookie and a lettuce wrap burger and was completely fine, but this time when she ordered the gluten free pizookie she ended up having a stomach ache immediately. Most likely got cross-contaminated, I don't advise going here or trusting their gluten free options as they aren't very specific about it.

I only eat a few select items from here, but have never gotten sick. The only certified gluten free item is the GF personal pizza. It's a decent pizza for a chain, and I appreciate having the option. There are other items on menu that can be made GF, but make sure to talk to the staff about needing it to be celiac safe.

Ordered gluten free salmon but it tested positive for Gluten on my Nima Sensor. Manager came over and promised to remake it and it happened again

This is one of my go-to places. There's a smaller selection for gluten-free folks, but it's all good stuff.

I particularly like getting the cheddar mashed potatoes/steak or pork chops/veggies. Feels like a good square meal compared to the pizzas.

The waiters seem knowledgeable. I've always felt fine after eating here many, many times.

I was so excited to try the gf pizza. when it arrived it was inedible. Burnt, paper thin, and flavorless.

The pros are that they have an allergen chart and a (small) gluten free menu. However, I find that the cons are much greater. Even the gf menu comes with limitations and substitution suggestions. It's not very inclusive of Celiacs like myself. I ordered a wedge salad. It was nothing special. Overall I was not pleased, and would not come here again by choice.

I wish I could give zero stars. Told the waiter twice I have celiacs, he brought out my food and I took one bite and knew it was gluten. Do not come if you have celiac I got sick eating here.

They gave a couple GF options but they are terrible. Staff is not friendly and knew anything about gluten. Why have a gluten free bun if the burgers themselves have gluten in them? Ridiculous

We’ve been to Nanuet and Teterboro and my teen with celiac has never been sick. This (Nanuet) is where we’ve been a few time a year, but we’ve never had the pizza so I can’t speak to that. My son gets a burger and side like mashed potatoes then a pizooki and still has room for some of my salmon. My whole family likes the food and they have enough variety to please different palates, ages, etc. I wouldn’t give five stars because I reserve that for places where extra/rare items are safe. But for the pizookie and the GF buns I’d give them 4.5 if I could.
