Gluten free options are labeled and staff was helpful. Seemed that cross contamination procedures would be applied depending on the severity of your allergy. I personally LOVED the food and did not get sick.

The staff changed gloves, washed hands, advised me of gluten free options, kept my food safe with barriers and and just worked on my order without switching to anyone else’s food.

On each of the items labels it states of the item is gluten free, and all but a few are safe. The staff was kind enough to sanitize the environment before beginning to make my meal. My boyfriend got the gf pita bread and he said it was good, it has a hint of sourdough flavor and isn't dry. The falafel here is amazing!

Loved this place pre-diagnosis, but I don't plan to return. What I have observed in their food-prep area is an absolute cross-contamination nightmare. My body is too sensitive to take that kind of risk.

Excellent food, enjoy the quality and quantity of gluten free options. However, after having gone here several times, our last visit was just that. The server was using the utentils to serve gluten free items into the pita sandwiches and back into the gluten free spreads. For someone who is highly sensitive, I notified the manager who stated sorry that is the way we serve our food here. This does not sound like a GIG trained practice to me. Eat at your own risk as far as cross contamination goes, otherwise good food.

This place is kind of like a Mediterranean food version of chipotle. We do eat here at least once a month. Without some kind of bread or cracker, it's a little lacking, I will bring my own crackers next time and it will help. The gluten free options are on their website or they have little signs in front of most of the items. Over all, a decent place to grab a healthy lunch or dinner.

Employees changed their gloves and took all of my toppings from fresh bins with clean utensils. Gluten free pita and falafel. Ingedients are marked on their label if gluten free, though its difficult to see until you are up close. Food was very tasty.

Outstanding cheap eats. Most items GF, and though fast-food the server cheerfully changes gloves and takes food from new containers with clean spoon. Can get GF pita bread,too. Fresh and tasty.

Celiac friendly?

Yes

Great real food fast. Lots of GF DF options and if you tell them you are Celiac they will serve you from fresh, uncontaminated containers (under the line) with fresh utensils . Very accommodating & a safe place to eat. I also love to get the chips instead of pita and dip them in Baba Ghanouj.
