    Great bread for the cheesesteaks. Great fries. We come here at least once a week. Celiac approved.

    Do not go here if you have Celiacs. I went there and they assured me they would take precautions. I could see into the kitchen and the guy handling the bread also touched the cheese that was going on my cheesesteak. He then touched a regular sandwich and then picked up mine with the same gloves. I was fortunate and saw this happen so didn’t eat it. They took off $4 (did not refund us), but since the gf sandwich was up charged $2 it was only like we got $2 off for something I couldn’t even eat.

    Joe’s is great! I make it a point to go there every time I’m in Philly. It’s a big meal, but I eat every bite! I get mine with only cheez whiz and a side of fries. It’s delicious!

    Great gluten free cheese steak! The fries were simple but very good and the vanilla soda was nice.

    All the staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating to me. I have never tried a cheese steak in my life, so it was a very exciting moment for me, and it did not disappoint!

    The gluten free bread was excellent! Delicious cheesesteak!! Cool diner vibe in a fun area of Philadelphia. Lots of locals there. My non gluten free friend also enjoyed her meal. The fries and milkshakes were great!

    They heat the gluten free bread on the same grill as regular bread and use the same utensils to fill the roll with meat. There is a lot of cross contamination.

    This place had the best gluten-free cheesesteak I have ever had!!! Well, also the only one I have ever had since I have not found one before. It was delicious and I had no reaction. This place will be my go-to for sure!!!

    My boyfriend is a celiac and we go here often! Their chicken cheesesteak with american cheese is amazing. The bread is homemade(or it tastes so at least!!). They have a small and a large size roll option. Their fries are gluten free too!!!! YUM

    Not celiac friendly. They can't say they never fry chicken tenders in the same fryer as the fries. I specifically asked for them to change gloves and the cook did- after he put new meat on the grill with the same gloves he handled regular rolls. The regular rolls are grilled on the same cooktop and then placed where the meat and onions are to get the meat and onions on the roll. My very sensitive celiac daughter did NOT even eat her cheese steak. $12.69 later and I'm eating a mediocre cheesesteak. I'm partial to Jim's on South street. Joe's cheesesteak had less flavor - not counting the GF roll, which isn't that good either.

    They made our fries in a separate fryer. Made sure to be aware of the gluten free bun. Very friendly and great service. GF Bun was tasty!

    Got carry-out for a birthday gathering. Three people in group had celiac. Everyone enjoyed their cheese steaks and fries. The people with celiac really enjoyed the roll. Staff member on the phone was helpful; took time to get our questions answered. Loved the pizza fries and the Old Bay fires. The (plain) fries need ketchup or some seasoning. The "Small" sandwich was pretty big and had a lot of meat (I recommend this size)

    They have really good food for a good price. fries are gf. I was quite disappointed with the person from the waitstaff who was quite snappy with us when we asked about gluten free (since it's on the menu), saying that they just had a gf roll, and then just said curtly that they couldn't tell us if any of the meat had gluten in it. Made zero effort to answer those questions and seemed put off that we were asking. I try to do good research before going to a new place--from what I had read i was not expecting that. :/ Maybe they were having a bad day, but that was our experience. Anyways, I could see the cook change her gloves, and there was no issue with the food at all, which, as I said, was quite good.

    Sooooo good! I always get the buffalo chicken one. I never get sick and they're super attentive to being gluten free.

    Good cheesesteak and they don't toast gf buns so no contamination worries. A pickle bar too that was without contamination issues!

    Amazing buns from taffets kept completely separate and they also only used meat from a grill that no bread touched. So good!
