I had never been here before so when I went up to the counter I asked the girl if they had gf. The manager was behind her so he said I will go ask. When he came back he said yes. They have gf pitas. They showed me the beef and Au Jus said Gluten Free. They open a new container of au jus so it isn’t cc. They were very nice. I was super happy to finally find a restaurant to eat lunch at.

Not gluten friendly. Dangerous to order. They have gluten free bread that looks like pita bread. However I ordered it and got regular bread on two separate occasions. They did replace they it but if one didn’t know it was, you wouldn’t know. Please avoid.

While I myself don’t have gluten allergies, my girlfriend is celiac, and if you are reading this and have similar dietary needs then stay away from anything containing their roast beef for the sandwiches. When they dip the sandwiches they use the same tray of ajus and beef as they use to put on the sandwiches which means all of the beef is contaminated with gluten. They are not knowledgeable about this as I told them there was a severe gluten allergy. Stay safe !

I ordered the chicken-avocado Protein Bowl. I told the order-taker I have a severe wheat allergy (easier than explaining Celiac's). While he made notes in their system the manager was nearby. He came over closer and verified that was what I had said. I told him it was important my food stay far away from bread and surfaces with flour and crumbs, etc. He went right over to the kitchen and got the attention of a cook, talked to him for a minute or two, then came back and told me they would make sure to take care of it. My husband's food was made and brought out separately from mine. My order was brought over to me by the order-taker, who had not been handling any other food (that I saw). They were very nice and accommodating, and my food was very good.

The naked bowls are amazing! Love the beef and sausage combo. Only time I've had a problem here is with the gf pitas. They absolutely do not consider cross contamination with those - beware!

FYI cross contamination warning - They dip regular bread in the same beef/juice they serve “gluten free” beef bowls and sandwiches from. This chain is not safe.

Celiac friendly?

No
