Not gluten free at all. Gluten free pitas but use some spoons and food so everything is cross contaminated. Bad bad bad

Staff was trained. The server switched her gloves the moment I said I needed a gluten free meal. All spoons remained in their own container. The meats that were gluten-free were labeled. I didn't realize that the gyro meat was not gluten-free so I was able to change it before it reached my plate. The server switched her gloves again! So I was incredibly thankful!! Meat is measured in a small container, so I see the potential for cross contamination there. Again, server did not use that container and just placed the meat on my plate. The gluten-free pita bread was pre wrapped in foil and heated that way to prevent cross contamination. Kudos to the server that I had!!! I was very pleased and she was patient and helpful. I will say just communicate your needs, stay vigilant and request for things to be done separate, etc....

Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill here!

We want to ensure the correct information is out there about our gluten-free options. While we have many gluten-free items on our menu and we strive to serve gluten-free guests to the best of our ability, we do not claim zero cross contamination in our restaurants. We are also not GiG trained, despite the rating Find Me Gluten Free has given us.

If you are gluten-free, please let our servers know as soon as you enter the line. They should do this when you alert them, but if not please ask them to change their gloves, use fresh serving utensils and use fresh food kept in coolers under our front line.

Our servers are also happy to answer any questions you may have about ingredients. Our website, www.EatGarbanzo.com, is also a great place to find our ingredients list.

Thank you,

The Garbanzo team

There is an allergen information page on their website. They offer many options that do not contain gluten.

I have been to Garbanzo a few times and every time has been delicious. So many gluten free options. I have only had the bowl but they recently got gf pita. Also, the fries go in a fryer that doesn’t fry anything not gf. They were so crispy!

Great food and very Celiac friendly. The staff changed their gloves without complaint and the assistant manager was so helpful that once she found out I had Celiac she checked my order and caught a mistake that had gluten. She restarted my order and gave me tips for next time. Highly recommend!

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.

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.
