My safest go to is the Gluten Free Cesar Salad. I have gotten sick from other gf menu items due to cross contamination.

My girlfriend has celiacs and ordered the gluten free pasta and got horrendously sick about an hour later. No indication that anything was wrong. If it was pure gluten it would have hit her in 20 min so it had to be cross contamination. Do not put yourself at risk!!!

I got glutened. I have eaten here many times in the past and while the service is always terrible the gf food is usually safe. As a Celiac I always make sure to tell them of my condition and order gf items w/o substitutions. I recently had an early dinner (4pm) so it is not like they were busy, I was assured the pasta was gf only to get violently ill. I was very disappointed since they do have a decent selection but I can't go back bc I can't trust that the gf food is safe.

Long time fans of this chain, but celiac kept us away UNTIL NOW, discovered deep and outstanding and newly rolled out gluten free menu at Hackensack NJ location. Staff surprisingly knowledgable and bun used for delicious turkey burger was outstanding. We were so impressed that we insisted on thanking the manager and he surprised us with a take home sampling of their GF pasta. A great and unexpected surprise, we'll surely go back for more.

Hello, this is my first review. I was diagnosed with Celiac yesterday but this is my first review. I was nervous to eat here because I am still getting used to ordering special and gluten free. Normally I would have gotten whatever I wanted but because this was my first official time ordering gluten free my options were limited. They have a huge menu, but limited gluten free options. There were some pastas, burgers, chicken dishes, salads, and omelette dishes. I settled for a turkey burger with a gluten free bun. The waitress was not surprised to hear a gluten free request and asked about accommodations. My burger came out and looked good. I’m pretty sure they brought me a beef patty instead of turkey, but i was more worried about my first GF bun! To my surprise it was really good. I have had bites of my mom’s GF buns before and know that there are some really bad tasting ones out there. With having regular buns lately I can honestly say that the taste was really good and close to what a good non-GF bun would taste like. The fries were good and also GF. Overall it was a really good meal. I can’t speak for cross contamination because I am symptomless and don’t react to gluten in anyway, so there is no fallout after eating gluten. I hope this review helps!

Very inconsistent with what is and not gluten free. Told something different every time. Even the managers have no idea what’s going on.

I am not only a Celiac person but also a employee of the Cheesecake Factory. I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free on the ticket. I have tried to eat at work many times and I get sick every time whether it’s a salad, burger or pasta. I have said some thing to not only the kitchen managers but also my regular managers and nothing has changed. I will be updating if it does. Don’t want my fellow celiac’s getting sick. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great restaurant and has great food and I love working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.

Originally I thought I was going to the Cheesecake Factory in Greenwood. They seem to have a higher celiac friendly percentage. Sadly this one does not. I was pleasantly surprised that the menu had so many options. I had shrimp with pasta. It was good. I did not get terribly sick from it, but I did have some tummy trouble later in the day (ate there for lunch). I feel like they would like to be celiac friendly, they may just not understand exactly HOW to do it. I do think they took extra precautions with my good.
