Review


Upon ordering I asked if he could use fresh gloves as I have celiac and not only did he do so, he also washed his hands and seemed unbothered about it. My Chicken & Rightrice bowl was delicious and I had no symptoms of cross contact.

I have eaten here several times and the food is always good. Staff are willing to change gloves once requested, and everything that goes in the bowl or tortilla are handled with spoons or tongs. All items are clearly labeled with top allergens in the restaurant and in the app. One of my favorites.

Delicious. Have an online pdf of all the allergens, very detailed. I like the build your own greens/grains bowl. Definitely use the same gloves reaching in tubs so I’d say there is cross contamination.

Celiac

Review


Not celiac or cross contamination safe :-(. I was super disappointed as the menu has a number of gluten free options but the dishes are made up along a line of ingredients so the serving utensils all touch everything. You can choose a bow or a pita and that is the issue. I didn’t ask of they could make up a bowl with new ingredients like some sandwich shops will do for gluten free. I may call ahead next time and see but they were so busy I didn’t want to cause a delay for others. This is one of my husband’s favorite places to eat (he doesn’t have a gluten issue). We walked in saw the situation and walked out.
