I am super sensitive and have been only ordering salads or soups in fear that the sandwiches are not safe. I ordered one today and feel great! I watched the prep, and they changed gloves and don’t really touch the food directly. I feel safe ordering again. Update 9/5/23: I have become a regular here and love the sandwiches!!

Server was very patient with all our questions and they made sure our order was handled properly. The GF bread was good, didn’t detract from the sandwich.

I don’t know what my reaction to gluten is yet (if any), because I’ve always been asymptomatic & I’m only in the first year of the diet / probably still haven’t fully healed yet, BUT I felt very confident in the fact that they knew what they were doing to make sure that I would be safe eating their food. When I told them I had the equivalent of a severe gluten allergy, they told me they would make sure to change gloves, fully clean surfaces / use a designated station for me, and use designated knives and other utensils. They also pointed out the chips and other sides that I could have safely. Also, their sandwich was delicious; I highly recommend the “farmers market” 🙂

I ordered delivery so was slightly worried. My sandwich and salad both had gluten free stickers on them. I’m a very sensitive celiac and felt fine. I ordered the next day too while on a brief vacation. Lots of gf options and can order all sandwiches without cheese if needed.

Had a slight reaction, but not enough to avoid the place completely since it is one of the only sandwich places around here!

The sandwich was so good. Being a GF family going out for a sandwich has never happened. I had pastrami, my Husband had roast beef and my son had turkey. For our 1 year old we got the vegetable soup. We also tried a green salad and potato salad and the gluten free chocolate chip cookies. The bread looked like the large Udi's bread and like I said the sandwich was great. The sides were just ok and the cookies were hard but my 4 year old didn't complain. I would totally go back!!

They use Udi's bread. They are very careful and have several regular customers that have Celiac. The owner came out to talk to me. Great food. Lots of GF options. Go there!

Erik's deli is a nice place to eat and they do try to accommodate people with gluten sensitivities, however on their web page there is a statement about the gluten free bread and it is made from wheat. So I contacted the people about that and they did in fact confirm the gluten free bread contains wheat and being a celiac I was rather saddened, however their salads are good as an alternative.

I have a gluten and dairy allergy. The sandwich I ordered was wonderful. The price was decent for the bay area (Monterey), the bread was light and airy, and the sandwich itself tasted great.

They have absolutely no idea what gluten free means. I asked which sandwiches we're gluten free, and no matter how many different times I asked the answer was "this bread is gluten free". I asked if the pesto on a sandwich was gluten free, "I don't know but the bread is gluten free so it's gluten free". DO NOT EAT HERE. It's sad because the one in downtown San Jose is good.

This is the only sandwich shop I feel completely comfortable eating at! Owners, managers, and most employees are incredibly mindful, aware of what ingredients are and aren’t gluten-free, and take really good care to avoid cross-contamination. They have a separate prep area for gluten-free sandwiches and will cut/make ingredients from scratch to avoid cross-contamination. It’s still a sandwich shop, and there’s always a chance something will slip through the cracks, so if you’re incredibly sensitive that’s something to keep in mind. I’ve never had an issue, though, and after watching the employees work and how careful they are, I feel very comfortable eating here.
