Only Gluten Sensitive menu

No way all the salad bar is gluten free after the way I felt after salad-eggs-and dressing

Cashier was very knowledgable and patient with us about their gluten free menu. I had no issues eating their and I have a gluten allergy. Great gluten free salad bar and gluten free bread for sandwiches.

This place has gotten much better. Everyone there knows what gluten free is and it's very obvious if you get a gluten free sandwich. I've had sandwiches and salads (not from the salad bar) and they were both delicious. Even though they can't promise 100% gluten free, I am satisfied with the precautions they take. I have never gotten sick here. The staff is so friendly. One time I completely forgot to order my sandwich on gluten free bread and they made me a whole new sandwich and refused to accept the dollar I was trying to give them for the gluten free bread/the hassle. Really friendly, really knowledgeable.

I visited Jason's for the first time and am now sick. I asked for the gluten free menu, ordered a build your own chicken salad on gluten fee bread with lettuce. Not knowing what there gluten free bread looked like, I questioned server again as sandwich was brought if it was gluten free bread. Her response was yes, therefore I proceeded to eat, was impressed until I purchases a whole loaf of gluten free bread which turned out to be Udis. That is when I realized that was different than the bread they served me and was eaten. Be careful, so sick right now.

The food is tastey, however not Celiac safe. I am Celiac and watched them make my food. They placed the allergen cutting board right under the toaster where there is high cross contamination. I asked them to please move the cutting board out from under the toaster and the manager said she had no where else to prepare the food. I asked her to move it down the line so it was not under the toaster and she got frustrated. This location on L street does not have a good understanding of preparing gluten free sandwhiches.

Asked them to prepare my meal separately in a clean area, change gloves, etc. They said all of the above are standard procedure for GF orders. They were very helpful and kind.

The GF bread was pretty bad. Dry, fell apart, etc. But the rest of the sandwich was great!

No knowledge of gluten free items on the menu. I’m allergic to dairy too and ended up leaving (and accidentally crying) in front of them because trying to order was so frustrating. This location couldn’t follow through on their big gf claims online.

Wow! They are awesome. My daughter’s potato was completely separated and sealed off from the rest of our order. They take the allergy very serious.

This has always been one of my favorite go-to’s for GF salads and sandwiches. However the last few times their procedures seemed to slip. I ordered a salad, asked for it to be marked for a gluten allergy and when it arrived, I found a noodle in it. They claimed the lettuce was from the salad bar. Not safe for cross contamination.
