You have to stand in line under cold AC blowing and they won’t let you hold the allergen menu. You have to build your meal instead of choosing a creation and then get a table.

I have never gotten glutened here which is awesome and almost everything is gluten free. However, be warned. Before I went here the first time I emailed the establishment to ask about cross contamination. The manager was nice enough to warn me that the chicken and spicy lamb meatballs are cooked on the same grill as the grilled meatballs which at the time contained pita. This was in 2019 and it looks like the menu has updated since then so the chicken might be safe now.

My first experience with a fast casual Mediterranean inspired restaurant - very good. Items were clearly marked and there were was very little that I could not eat, even with multiple allergies.

Awesome experience. When I told the first person about gluten, he immediately stepped back from the line and started to wash his hands and change gloves. When I asked about protocols (like other people down the line), he said “I’ll be with you through to the end.” He just informed everyone he was handling my food and was super great about everything.

Interesting Mediterranean food as well! Plenty of GF options. I could go there many times and get something that tastes vastly different on each trip (unlike some other fast casual places like Chipotle). I ordered a bowl with chicken as the protein. Looking foreword to my next trip. Good choice!

When I told them I had a gluten allergy, they took it super seriously and made all the their people working with the bowl change their gloves, and really tried to minimize cross contamination. I really appreciate their diligence!

This place is amazing! It is like the chipotle for mediterranean food! So many delicious options and everything is labeled with allergens on the glass! I believe it’s also labeled on online ordering but don’t quote me on that! I have been eating here for years and never had an issue

Chain restaurant. Bowls with a grain or salad base. Most items gluten free, all are clearly marked. Good food, reasonably priced.
