They use Udi's bread and follow safe practices when preparing sandwiches.
Even though they state on their wrapper that they're not safe for celiacs, I never had problems with gluten at this chain in three locations, until last Sunday. I got really sick (fairly certain gluten-related rather than food poisoning) after eating something I'd had without problem the day before. maybe not everyone gets training at this location?
They let me know I could order any sandwich I wanted with gluten free bread. I was worried about how the bread would taste but it was great! They brought it to me wrapped up, like it was prepared on a paper wrapper instead of straight on the prep counter. Will be returning for lunches in the future.
Staff is very knowledgable. But buyer beware....the GF food is prepared right next to the non GF good. Because I am a celiac and get contaminated very easily, I followed my food down the line and made sure it was prepared correctly. I did not get ill.....
Stopped in after landing in Salt Lake. They offer a GF bun option. The kid at the counter said he would be careful but I choose to avoid eating there - when in doubt, leave it out. The deli counter is open and used for all sandwiches. Although the bun may be GF and they put on fresh gloves I was too concerned that the meats, cheeses and other condiments must have been contaminated from all of the reaching in all day making sandwiches. If you are a sensitive non-celiac or have celiac I'd recommend avoiding this place.
THIS location is amazing. They have a separate counter for their delicious gf bread, and separate condiments. ONE person walks my order through so no one else touches it. It's so tasty, and so nice to be "normal" for once. This place has definitely won me over from my first horrific Jason's Deli experience in Layton, UT (now permanently closed). THIS location is amazing, and I recommend it to EVERY person I meet. Seriously. Go there.
I'm not celiac but still have to eat gluten free. I ordered the Reuben with the Udi's bread. My sandwich came wrapped in a box with allergy info on top which was a first for me but thought it was a nice touch. The meat and sauce was really good but the bread wasn't dense enough and fell apart when I tried to pick it up. I finished it with a fork! But good flavors!
I have ea ten several times at Jason's Deli in Odessa Texas and they are very Celiac friendly.
Of all the locations I have visited, they all have done an excellent job. I have had no issues with cross contamination. I have not been sick, not even slightly. My little ones love going there. They have so many options, except pizza. They even have gluten free dressing for salads.
The food here is absolutely amazing. Sandwiches ordered on gluten free bread come served in a sealed take-out container to avoid contamination. They also have Udi's cookies available for dessert if you don't want the soft serve! Lots of salad and soup options as well, for those who don't want a sandwich or want something with it.
I've been a few times but decided it's not worth getting sick. The person cooking spoke little English. I watched them prepare my food and sit the food on the counter where gluten filled sandwiches were made. I asked the mgr for help but not sure they understood. I won't go again.
Daughter 10yo Celiac loves the grilled cheese they make and ice cream they have. delicious she says. never been sick. they are knowledgeable and haven't cross contaminated. celiac friendly.
Everyone is knowledgeable about celiacs! They have a separate menu, and the gf bread is great. They got me to try the veggie soup and their bean-salad and even the cookie is gf! I am very sensitive and have yet to experience a reaction to any Jason's location.
I have Celiac Disease, have eaten here before and been fine but today, even after talking with the manager who said they'd change their gloves, I got glutened. Within 10 minutes of finishing my salad I became violently ill. My day is ruined....probably my whole weekend.
They say they have gluten sensitive menu only!! There is a note on bottom of menu saying they are not for people with Celiac disease and restaurant cannot recommend persons with Celiac disease to eat their. I'm glad I saw that note I left, last thing I want too do is get sick. I have gotten really sick from cross contamination.
Very good food, many gluten free options.
While they do have gluten free bread for their sandwiches, you have to be sure that they understand cross contamination. They usually are great with allergies and celiac, however last time they contaminated my sandwich. Ended up making a new one and giving me a $10 gift card though, so they are very understanding.
I took a 10 yr old that has Celiac to the one on Hanes Mall Blvd. They have a GF menu but when I asked about the prep, the manager told me that there is no way they can say GF. It is made on the same surfaces and next to all the regular breads. If you are simply eating GF by choice then ok but for gluten allergy / stay away!
Love that when I asked for gluten free they brought out a completely different table top, changed gloves completely, got vegetables and meats from a separate container, everything was completely separate from other areas and they put it in a closed container rather than on a plate to prevent cross contamination that way. The sandwich was really good too
The food is great, and no reaction yet. I'd give it 5 stars for quality and service, yet I rushed in saw gluten-free and didn't question how my sandwich was made. I may feel fine, but I wouldn't risk it. I may not be going again :(. But they were very friendly. Maybe if you nicely asked what they could prepare the most conscientiously with extra care, like a chicken salad I could see them doing the best they can.
Definitely would recommend. They offer options galore. It was nice to have someone who was capable of catering to my specific needs. They also have a way of not cross contaminating the sandwiches in their ovens. They are huge BTW so if you have a small stomach like I do. I would recommend half or a Salad or soup. I am definitely coming back again!
The gluten free bread for my sandwich was one of the best I've had. A great choice for a GF lunch!
Good gluten free lunch option.
They have GF sandwich bread (either Udi's or Rudi's - I couldn't tell which one she said), so I ordered a GF muffaletta. When the cashier asked if I wanted it toasted, I expressed concern about it being toasted where other breads are toasted, and she assured me it was done separately and would be GF. She was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Enjoyed a gluten free California Club sandwich on Udis bread, with chips and pickle. They did ask if gluten allergy or preference. Charged 59 cents extra for GF bread. They do not have a gluten free toaster, would have given a higher score if they did. I did not have my sandwich toasted. Self service, free vanilla and chocolate soft serve after your meal is a nice bonus. They had a disclaimer on a sticker on sandwich wrap; they do not recommend for celiacs.
Not bad. A.few gluten free options but not many. The girl who took our order was very lazy and acted like she didnt care. i had to tell it multiple times i cant afford a mistake and when my food came it came with a gf note that noted that it was gf. I didnt get sick here
