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.

NOT SAFE for CELIACS. It breaks my heart to type these words because (pre-diagnosis) this was one of my favorite places to eat.

I ordered a (naturally gluten free) salad. I was told that the kitchen would change their gloves, prepare on a clean surface, etc. Imagine my surprise when my salad was delivered in a sealed container, but with a sticker on the top that said this meal was prepared in a kitchen with gluten so they cannot guarantee it was not cross contaminated (and they do not recommend for people with Celiac Disease).

This was all a bit shocking since the woman who took my order assured me their food was Celiac safe AND because she walked back to the kitchen after taking my order to tell the staff I had Celiac.

Given all of these precautions, I decided to take the risk and eat the salad. I was sick less than 30 minutes later. So disappointing, but wanted to share since the information I was given at the register was very different than what the warning sticker said when the food was actually delivered.

Had lunch there today, ordered the CB Ranch Potato. Ask them to change gloves because of gluten allergy. I have celiac and a wheat allergy. Meal arrives in a to-go container with a gluten label, with the store disclaimer about only being gluten sensitive. I was ok during the meal, but was feeling very sick by the time we left. I would not recommend for anyone who is Celiac which the restaurant does state.
