Staff were happy to change their gloves to make my unwich (lettuce wrap), and even spoke up to include mayo packets instead of cross contaminating with their spatula/jar of mayo. For you celiacs who are in a jam, and need something quick, do your research beforehand (see link below), and advocate for yourself when you order!

Things containing gluten at Jimmy John’s: -bread & cookies -cheese (contains barley wheat) -tuna -salt and vinegar chips -bbq chips

This location is not celiac friendly! The manager, Josh, does not understand cross contamination. He was using the same tub Mayo that he had used for breaded sandwiches. He is also rude and unapologetic. Do not recommend

Unwhich is far superior to sandwhich bowls at all places. If you have celiac make sure to notify them and explain how nothing can be cross-contaminated; staff is very understanding and helpful.

JJ consistently is great about understanding the need to avoid gluten (I just tell them I have an allergy and they usually seem to get it) and change gloves, prepare carefully on a new paper surface as an un-wich (lettuce wrap). Thankfully haven’t had problems with CC. I also had the regular chips but be careful about the bbq chips. They have barley malt and I’m assuming that’s not safe!?
