They do have a lettuce wrap option, but it was pretty bad. Too much lettuce and not enough filling. My wrap was also overflowing with mayo so it was really messy to eat. Originally I asked if they could make the wrap into a salad instead and they said no, so the wrap is really your only option :(

Went around 3:30 pm, which is after their busy peak lunch hour. Told them I had a gluten allergy and she immediately put on fresh gloves. I ordered a turkey sandwich with avocado in a lettuce wrap. The lettuce was very fresh and big enough for a sandwich. She seemed to have covered the entire sandwich-making area with protective paper, which I think was for me. She told her coworker he couldn't work on the sandwich because he didn't have clean gloves - so she did the whole process to the end. Keep in mind, this is a place that uses bread day in and out for 99% of their customers. So if you're really really concerned about cross contamination this is a dangerous place to begin with - but my experience was good.

Where to start??? Hmm..... how bout with the order taker who tried to charge me double. They do offer all of their sandwiches in a lettuce wrap however when I said I needed a totally gluten free sandwich and please use clean utensils and change your gloves, he neither indicated on my receipt nor said anything to the sandwich maker....strike one!! The actual sandwich maker made my sandwich on bread.... since my request was never mentioned!! Strike 2!! Third, they forgot my chips!! And to make the whole event a crappy experience they also put Mayo using the spatula that is generally smeared across someone else’s bread! I did not realize they put Mayo on the sandwich until I got home ! I ended up eating it anyway but will NEVER go back......I hate to be the p-a customer but I hate even more when people do not pay attention ! Word to the wise-watch these folks like a hawk!! They all look like they dropped out of high school anyway.

They offer their sandwiches as a lettuce wrapped "unwich" that are actually very good. I've gotten their original chips which were gf as well. Jimmy John's is probably my favorite sandwich place. Not sure if they use clean surfaces for preparation though, but I haven't gotten sick. Wouldn't recommend if you are very sensitive.

I adore the unwich! I usually get the club lulu and add shredded lettuce, onion cucumber, oil and vinegar! I did get the provolone cheese once and got sick ( different location) so steer clear of the provolone cheese! Anyways, they always do a phenomenal job of avoiding cross contamination.
