Sometimes the gluten free bread is still cold/frozen. Other than that issue, this place is generally pretty delicious. They are careful if you tell them you have an allergy. The Redwood City Ike's location has a better GF bread.

This San Mateo location does not have an allergen list printed out but if you go online to see which of their sandwiches are gluten free they will make it for you in a dedicated space with dedicated tools and clean gloves. The bread and ingredients are inventive and quite good. I have not had a reaction after visiting this location.

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.

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.
