I love Ike’s! They have the most delicious fresh-baked gluten free bread and their sandwiches are amazing every time. I have celiac and have eaten here many times and have never been contaminated. The employees are super knowledgeable and the menu is marked well. They will let you know if something in your sandwich is gluten free or not.

Delicious bread from Mariposa, and you can specify it’s for an allergy so that they’ll change gloves and utensils to lessen the risk of cross contamination. I eat here all the time without a problem and most of the sandwiches can be made GF!

Super cool they ask if it’s an allergy or preference. When I said allergy they confirmed they made it separately with clean gloves and utensils. Bread roll from Mariposa was super delicious!

They have an entirely separate area to make gluten fee sandwiches! Different utensils and condiments! Their sandwiches are wonderful. You just have to make sure to express that it's an allergy and they'll take good care of you!

Right off the bat they asked if I was was to sensitive to have the same cutting board for things. Luckily I'm not, but the fact that they asked implies that they're willing to comply for those more sensitive than myself. I'm not sure how well they do however. The best part is that they didn't even charge me extra for gluten free bread - and they had th3 good stuff, not just sliced Udi's like many places. I said not celiac friendly because of experiences others have had, not myself.

My low rating is based only on safety. Sandwiches are incredibly good; I really recommend this place if you're not as sensitive as I. But a few weeks ago, a poorly trained and enthusiastic cashier assured me I'd be safe and I wasn't.

The chain owner took the time to reply personally to my complaint; he seems to take health very seriously and says his staff are rigorously trained to be as safe as possible but to not promise that cross-contam is unlikely.

I wish they could train staff to prep even more safely. I'd eat here all the time if I could. Again, I highly recommend for those who don't have to worry about trace gluten.

Gluten-free bread is offered here, but cross-contamination is very high. It is definitely not for celiacs but may be an option for others. The gf bread is very good, though much smaller than the regular sandwiches. I love the Shrek and the Luther Burbank. A manager said they're looking to offer gf English muffins as well and have been doing taste tests to find the brand they like best.

They were very careful and knowledgeable. No issues afterwards. One of the best sandwiches I've had! I had the Menage A Trois. Delicious! The only problem is there isn't an Ike's near me!

I have gone to various Ike’s locations for years, and I am a sensitive Celiac. I have yet to get sick. They take extra precautions, so your food will take 15 extra minutes on top of a normal sandwich time. I recommend ordering in advance through the app or online. Also, the bread is incredibly dry, so order extra sauce on the bread. I normally order Italian dressing and ask it to be put on both sides of the bread before the toppings. It is a $3 upcharge for gluten free and then extra for the sauce, so know your sandwich will be pricey. So. Delicious. And. Worth it.
