Review


Came for lunch with a group expecting to only be able to eat lettuce and was pleasantly surprised. Menu is marked with options that can be modified gluten free - they have some baked wings, salads, burger rolls, pasta, steak tips, etc. No dedicated fryer. I asked about the blackened chicken pasta and was assured pasta would be cooked in clean water. A manager brought my food out separately on a covered tray and confirmed it was gluten free. I am not symptomatic so generally can’t speak to presence cross contamination but I felt comfortable eating here.

Pizza and roasted wings seem to be the safest. Separate trays delivered by manager. Never got sick here. Crappy cider selection for such a large bar. Angry orchard.

I ordered takeout from Jake n Joe’s in Braintree for dinner tonight. I confirmed multiple times about my allergy on the phone and explained that cross contamination in the fryer is an issue for a gluten allergy. The person I spoke with told me that a separate fryer would be used and that they accommodate allergies with no problem. I arrived to get my food and when I asked on arrival to confirm that my food was gluten free, I was told “oh there was an issue with cross contamination but here’s your food.” I explained to the manager that I had asked about it at length and that the staff was giving false information on the phone. Of course I didn’t take the food, but no one seemed to understand the problem with using the same fryer. I am just frustrated and annoyed that my dinner plans were ruined. Hoping that sharing my experience will save someone else the trouble - I will never go back there because it was made very clear to me that although they pride themselves on accommodating allergies, it is actually very unsafe to eat there.

I have been ordering their gluten-friendly menu items and finally asked the manager how the cauliflower pizza is cooked. They cook it in a conveyor oven with other pizzas which is where I got the gluten cross contamination. He did offer to put it in a separate tray inside the oven instead of directly in the oven, but they usually don't do that.

This was okay. Not a very extensive menu, but was clearly marked with what was gluten free. I got the Buffalo chicken Mac and cheese. It was pretty good. (A bit too spicy and I didn’t love the chicken). It was clearly box pasta. Not sure if I’d go again. Pretty mediocre.

We were hesitant to go because there were only 3 reviews (1-5 years ago) and they were very bad- but we went to a different location and it was excellent. I called first and spoke with the manager. He clearly understood Celiac Disease and cross contamination. We went and the staff were very careful, knowledgeable, a manager delivered the food and the quality was excellent!
