    this chain does list all ingredients and will change gloves for you. big BUT: they have no processes to ensure no cross contamination and apparently no staff knowledge of cross contamination of allergens. with a little patience you will catch them spreading dips on a wheat pita then putting the same utensil back in the dip. or handling wheat pitas, then using the same gloves in bonds of greens to serve a salad bowl.

    They do an excellent job listing all allergens. They are accommodating with changing gloves. Food is good. But both times I have gone I have ended up ill. This time much worse. From what I have read the cross contamination may occur on the grills, maybe utensils? Not sure and there is always new people working so it's hard to investigate what is the issue. But if you are celiac/ sensitive be mindful and cautious. Delicious yes, but I'm struggling now.

    Ask manager for assistance and they can get food out of separate bins.

    Great place to stop for a safe GF meal. I doubt they are perfect but appears to be better than avg on cross contamination. Everything is labeled GF on the menu and on the counters they serve from.

    Great quick bite at Union Station. Right next to Chipotle, Roti, Unos and Chopt. 5 gluten friendly restaurants right there. It's a small paradise!

    Great chain for gluten/dairy/soy/corn free diet. Chicken, lamb and meatballs are GF, as are most toppings and sauces. Fountain drinks are great too.

    The food is delicious and the back of the menu specifically tells you which items are gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian.

    This place tries very hard to make sure you don't have cross contamination. They will change their gloves for you and even pull from the unused lettuce bin without complaint. The guy who helped me today even washed his hands before changing gloves, and they were busy!

    The food is amazing!! It is a little hard to find though since the sign outside isn't lit. Also, for the people who are gluten free, there needs to be a gluten free pita option.

    First time there was delicious! Follows the Chipotle concept with a Mediterranean theme, and almost all the the ingredients are gluten free, as are the preparations. Different kinds of bowls and salads, most of the proteins are GF. Big flavors such as Siracha tahini and the vegetarian with us loved his rice and Lentil bowl. Also amazing drinks. Loved it!
