    I get gluten free here all the time. Any sandwich can be made gluten free. They use Udis gluten free bread.

    I've had good experiences at this Erik's. When you let them know your order needs to be treated as an allergy they're good about taking precautions. The gluten-free bread isn't my favorite and it's a little crumbly, but it does the trick.

    Their menu specifies which items are GF with a green circled "G" next to it, although it warns that there's a chance of cross-contamination. They also offer any sandwich on GF bread (pre-packaged Udi's). I asked them to make my daughter's sandwich on a clean plate so that there would be less risk of contamination. He changed his gloves and used a bread board that is dedicated for GF. My daughter is extremely sensitive to cross contamination, but she had no problems afterward, thanks to their precautions. We would definitely come again!

    Really tasty sandwich, decent price, gluten-free bread upon request. Of all the places on this app, so far I like this place the best. I ordered Abbotts Habit and the Ross's beef tasted very fresh and it was nice and tender and the cheese tasted high quality too.

    By far, this is probably my favorite GF place to eat and definitely one of the best Erik's around. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They never seem to be too busy for dinner which is nice and they usually always have plenty of seating. They know which soups are GF and they post a list of those soups on the wall so they can quickly refer to it. The GF bread is delicious and so too is the butternut squash soup.

    Don't bother unless you either print out or memorize their gluten-free menu posted on their website. I didn't have enough signal to pull it up at the restaurant, and none of the three employees knew anything about a gf menu. They said, "We only have bread."

    It is so hard to find a delicious, celiac friendly restaurant - especially something quick. That's why Erik's DeliCafe is so perfect! The menu is very specific, the owner and employees are knowledgeable and understanding, and the food is seriously delicious. I can finally have soup and a sandwich for lunch again, without having to sacrifice flavor or pay an obscene amount!

    They were really busy and this isn't my usual Erik's location. The one in Los Gatos has never ever made me sick. But this one did. Itchy scalp and some nice mouth-tingling.

    Delicious! Every sandwich can be made with GF bread, but definitely have them check their Nutritional Facts binder for all of the ingredients if you're super sensitive. They were very helpful and conscious of cross-contamination.

    Great reliable GF sandwiches like other Erik's locations. Udi's bread option in a larger sized slice than you can get at the store. Mention you have a gluten allergy and they will make your sandwich on a dedicated GF station. If you ask the staff, they can show you a binder with all allergen ingredients (not posted online). The secret goo sauce is dairy free.

    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 are great about protecting against cross contamination, using a dedicated cutting board, knife and utensils. Although I haven't tried them, they also have several soups that are gluten free.

    I ate here twice this weekend while in town for a soccer tournament nearby. The other Erik's I've visited used to ask if my request for gf bread was due to an allergy or a preference at which point they would change gloves. This location didn't ask so left me feeling less confident about cross contamination. So far I haven't gotten sick and the sandwiches were tasty. Once again, keeping my fingers crossed.

    If you're gluten free this is the place to be! All sandwiches on the menu can be made gluten free (if you have Celiac they even have a separate work station and change gloves) and there are also several other delicious options. Taste is not sacrificed and the food is absolutely amazing as well as the customer service. If I lived in the area this would be my regular for sure, love the place.

I love the pickle mascot and was given a pin with the pickle mascot. also, the pickles are excellent. my friend who needed the gluten free meal enjoyed her sandwich and soup. Will keep this place in mind for next year's ragnar. please open locations in los Angeles

    Just a great sandwich place. Gluten free bread is really good and holds up well while you eat your sandwich. Gluten free cookies at check out and the workers knew which soups were gluten free. We went two nights in a row! There is a tiny risk of contamination, I think, if they make your sandwich where they make all the regular sandwiches. Worth asking about.
