Horrible. My husband picked up dinner for us at freshii. He asked them if the wraps were gluten-free. He was told that they are. He went through the ingredients of several things on the menu, includung the wontons, and each time was told that they were gluten-free. Two different employees verified that the food was gluten-free. He bought three wraps and brought them home for dinner. I looked at the wraps and asked what they were made of, but he didn't know, so I called the Freshii restaurant myself. I have never eaten there before, so I decided to confirm that the wraps, which did not look gluten-free, were in fact safe for me to eat. I called the Evanston restaurant at 7:00 pm on 7/9/19. The girl who answered the phone told me that the wraps are gluten-free. So I asked what they were made of. She asked me to hold, then came back a minute later and told me they were wheat tortillas. I asked her to repeat herself. She said that they were wheat. Obviously, then, they are not gluten-free. I wouldn't trust this place to serve gluten-free food,or to even have any idea what gluten-free means. Incidentally, they didn't even get his order for the wraps right. Two of the wraps just had beans and rice in them- nothing else.
