I follow a celiac diet (although not celiac myself) and am sensitive to certain ingredients so it was important to find somewhere that could accommodate allergies. Ike has an amazing menu of items that caters to meat eaters, vegans, and gluten sensitive people alike. They literally have an option called "allergy" to add to the order so that they can accommodate the order as such. I had the Matt Cain with a gluten free bun and no sauce (can't take a risk). I thought for sure it was going to be a dry unremarkable sandwich but was pleasantly surprised to find it tasty, warm, and fresh. The beef created it's own juice which made it delicious and easier to eat. I loved the bun. Made very well and almost like the real yeasty thing. The only thing I found negative was that they had no salt and pepper. That was odd. But regardless, I still had a good sandwich. I commend the team here for careful food handling cause I had no skin reactions and typically celiac/gluten sensitive people are paranoid even eating at places like this because of cross contamination.

This place is amazing and they “get it”, eat at ease of cross contamination risk, and the bread is delicious!

One of the best gluten free sandwich places I’ve been to. I haven’t had an allergic reaction here yet.

Fantastic selection of gluten free sandwiches in a deli counter environment.This location doesn't have all of them listed on the menu board, but I get the #333 Stephen Jenkins (singer from Third Eye Blind) which has pesto and turkey and stuff on a Toasted Gluten Free French Bread! *be sure to tell them you have a gluten 'allergy' because they do a special preparation to avoid cc.My gluten-eating exchange student said her gluten containing sandwich was the best sandwich she has ever had in her 17 years of life!

Awesome gluten-free roll for the sandwich. I haven't had a good hot sandwich in years and was able to enjoy one here.

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 a gluten from sub sandwich bread. Staff was knowledgeable and took special precautions to give me a truly gluten free sub.

This location is terrible. They gave me regular bread more than once. Their locations in Concord and Danville do an amazing job of taking precautions against cross contamination and never make me sick. Go there instead!
