I’ve eaten here a few times and I haven’t gotten sick. The food is delicious, and the back of the normal menu marks what is gluten free. A few of the meats contain gluten so I just get the chicken which is good and then everything else except like the pita are good to go. It’s like a chipotle layout.

NO NO NO. The food looks absolutely delicious. We saw people sitting on the patio while we were out shopping, and I had heard the one in Charlotte was fabulous for Celiac folks. We went into order, my daughter told the cashier that she had Celiac, well I will just say that no one behind the counter was really sure what that was. They thought it might have something to do with gluten, so they all began searching for the gluten-free menu, found it, and then started questioning each other about it. That’s when we told them thank you but we’re going to pass. It was obvious that they had not been trained by management on how to prepare or handle food for those with Celiac.

I heard this was a good place. I was super careful in what I ordered as there appeared to be several areas of cross contamination. They have knives in the hummus and other spreads. They spread directly from the bins onto the bread. They also scoop from there into the salads. I got the dressings on the side. I can’t speak to how it tasted because my gluten detection dog alerted that there was gluten in the bowl as well as in 3 of the sauces. I would not eat there if you have celiac disease like I do.

We eat at Cava all the time. If you avoid the pita and ask them to change gloves, you have a more than reasonable chance that you won’t get glutened. But tonight’s server insisted that we couldn’t get the white rice because rice has gluten. Not a huge deal but some room for improvement at this location.

CAVA has become a favorite for us. It's easy to do GF here, just have to opt-out of pita and can't have the falafel. So many great flavors and mix-ins make for a lot of variety.
