they have the absolute best gluten free bread i’ve ever had!! i’m not even exaggerating. It was so good I had to go double check they gave me the right bread. They ask if it’s an allergy or preference and will change their gloves for you and make it in a gf area. Delicious!! i’m absolutely obsessed.

OMG the gluten free bread here and sandwiches are amazing. They have a dedicated space for gluten free, so you have nothing to worry about. I've been to two other Ike's and even though it's a chain, this one stands out as the best.

They have good allergen protocols in place. The GF bread is shockingly good and not just crumbly sandwich bread.

I have been here so many times now because they take such good care of me. They prep gf sandwiches in a separate area and they are so so good. Just make sure you tell them that you have celiac/allergy (whatever you have) so that they take extra precautions.

They Actually ask you if it's for allergies when you order gf bread! Then they apologize for take a little longer to make the sandwich so they can clean the area, wash, and reglove. (Like we mind them taking extra care to keep me safe) They were So nice and accommodating to my large family (We tote our 5 kids just about everywhere). The bread they use comes from agf bakery in Oakland. It's very delicious, like regular artisan. Unfortunately, it's more of a take out place for us. Tables are too high and they only have stools. The high chair doesn't fit the tablescuz of the hight. Otherwise it would be 5 stars.

Great sandwiches. You can check with the staff which sandwiches are gluten free. Be sure to mention that it's a gluten "allergy" and not just a lifestyle choice, and they will have the kitchen change gloves and clean knives before preparing your sandwich. I just have them leave the sandwich whole so as to have one less thing you worry about. The Tony Soprano is my favorite with some Voodoo chips on the side.

The staff at the downtown Tempe location was highly unprofessional, rude, inappropriately dressed, and playing music with profane lyrics. I asked for no cheese and they made my sandwich with cheese. I had to return it and they were rude about having to make it again. Not confident that they take precautions for allergens. I had to ask make sure that were using gluten free bread.

Sandwiches are amazing! I was so happy they came down from NCAL! Tell them you’ve got celiac or an allergy and they’ll be extra cautious! I have celiac and haven’t gotten sick here .

They have gluten free bread. They are knowledgeable and take steps to avoid cross contamination. Be sure to say gluten free because of an allergy.
