I had the gf chicken pita wrap and it’s literally the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted. No sickness or reaction. I would eat it every day if I could afford to

I have eaten here many times and never gotten sick. The biggest plus is their dedicated fryer, so you can get fries. I always get a pizza, fries, and pita with hummus. Their staff also has a pretty good knowledge on gluten free and cross contact. Their staff is also always very friendly and willing to accommodate to your needs.

I love this place! When you walk in, a neon sign tells you they proudly serve gluten free bread. Great start! Honestly, I’ve only tried the burger, which was EXCELLENT. I plan to go back and try other menu items. I was stuck there waiting 2 hours for AAA battery service, and the server kept checking on me and refilling my drink. The gf bun was excellent. Can’t wait to try more.

Great food! Knowledgeable staff. Fries are in a dedicated frier. They have GF pitas. I had mine as a Gyro and was fine. My more sensitive daughter ate a pita and got glutened. We told them we had celiac but I want to try again as and specifically tell them not to put the pita on the same surface as the other pitas.

Great experience! We asked about gluten free and were amazed to find they had gluten free pita. Because I can't have any gluten, the cashier made sure gloves were changed and precautions were taken to avoid cross contamination. We had the hummus with gf pita, and we ordered the pita sandwich with gf pita. The cashier said the gf version of pita is actually better than the flour version, so he orders it all the time. I can't compare, but I can tell you the gf pita was amazing!! Would highly recommend!

Best GF pita I’ve ever had! It was also the best Mediterranean dishes I’ve had. The service was amazing. The staff was able to answer all of our questions and make wonderful recommendations. I had the falafel appetizer and the spinach mushroom pita appetizer. For my entree I enjoyed the chicken pita. All of it was delicious and I would recommend to anyone!

Very impressed! Love that they have a gluten free option for everything on their menu. A little pricey but worth the extra money for a total GF experience. Having super friendly and accommodating service was the cherry on top. Wish I had one of these in my home town!

The gyro is not gluten free. When I called they were very unknowledge about what was GF and didn’t leave me with enough confidence to eat there. They also do not have a dedicated GF kitchen space like the app says.

The natural smoothies are amazing. Was told the first time the gyro meat was gluten free, but found out latter the gyro meat isn’t gluten free. I did not get sick surprisingly. They have the most amazing gluten free pita bread that I’ve ever had and they have a dedicated cooking space. We have been back many times.

I had gyro pita and it was amazing. My friend and I split hummus and they gave us separate pita bread, with the gf pita marked. It was the best gluten free pita I’ve ever had.

February 17, 2018: this restaurant is NOT CELIAC SAFE!!! The staff was NOT knowledgeable about gluten at all. She said they had gluten free sandwich bread, pita bread, and Uncle Ben’s brown rice. When we asked about their meats and other things to go with those gluten free carbs, she said they had fresh beef and chicken and seasoned it in house so she thought it was gluten free - until we asked if she was seasoning the food with gluten free seasonings and she asked, “gluten can be in seasonings? I’ve never heard of that that!” We decided to leave and go elsewhere because this is clearly NOT celiac safe!

Very knowledgeable about gluten free and cross contamination. They have their own gluten free pita bread that isn't cooked or stored near the regular pita bread. I had the grilled chicken pita and it was delicious. I will definitely be back.

Gluten free Mediterranean food! I had to stop in when my coworker, who is also gluten-intolerant, recommended the place. I order the GF turkey pita with French fries and it was delicious. My girlfriend had the GF chicken pita with French fries and again... delicious. Will be coming back.
