I am Celiac and eat here frequently! Never have had any issues with being glutened. They are clean, and will take every precaution.

Staff is helpful and menu is clearly marked with gf items. There are only a few items in the menu that are not gf. The food is fresh and they will adjust the order if you ask them to do so. Very good place!

I am very sensitive and have never gotten sick here. Their menu is pretty easy to navigate, but they also have an excellent interactive menu on their website. You can choose your dietary restrictions (gluten free, dairy free, etc.) and it will show you exactly what works for you. We have also found the staff to be knowledgeable and their prep procedure to be pretty safe at avoiding cross contamination. They make the food in front of you (think Subway or Chipotle style) and you can easily add or subtract items from the dishes, or create your own. They use a clean metal bowl to assemble the salads for each customer and there is an individual scoop in each ingredient. It’s one of those rare places where I feel like I can order like a “normal” person and don’t have to ask them a million questions to avoid being miserable later.

Tell them you have a gluten allergy when you start going through the line and a single person will put your salad together and make sure nothing with gluten goes in.

Almost everything is gluten free. However steak and some dressings are not. I usually do a build your own bowl. They have a list of which dressings are gluten free right on the glass where they make the bowls. I’ve been to this location 5 or 6 times and never have gotten sick.

They have a nice selection of vegetables and protien. We were able to create our own salads and avoid gluten and dairy products. They do not offer gluten free bread.

They assured me all salads were gluten free. After I got sick I looked up the salad I had and sure enough the dressing and meat marinade had gluten. Not going back

Granted I visited when it wasn't busy, but the workers took extreme care. Instead of taking ingredients out of the normal containers, the worker went into the back and used entirely new batches of the different ingredients. Most of their dressings are GF!

I have celiac disease. They use a clean bowl everytume they make a salad, and the person making my salad washed her hands without me even asking. You can look on their website on their allergy menu and choose no gluten and it will tell you what you can eat. I had the Pomona salad and it was really tasty. I had no issues at all.

Gluten info was clearly posted. The staff was knowledgeable about what was gluten free, even when it was not posted.

My visit was in March 2016 -- the employee I worked with seemed well-trained in cross-contamination issues, and the salad I had was simple but tasty and safe.

Great salads with plenty of options. Dressings are clearly labeled . (Would suggest the red pepper one) In regards to the previous review, there aren't very many gluten ingredients to have cross contamination. Obviously it's possible, but unless you are hyper sensitive, you should be fine. (Do any restaurants really "guarantee" you won't have issues?) My sister and I (both celiacs) had no problems.

I had trusted Mad Greens in the past. Yesterday I was told by the Mad Greens employee at different location that there is no chance of me eating there without getting sick. "We make no guarantees regarding gluten because there are no controls in our food prep. We use the same cutting boards and knives to cut bread and vegetables without washing in between. Even if that cutting board was washed, we work side-by-side with gluten containing ingredients. All vegetables have probably been exposed to gluten, even those in the bins that have not been put on the line yet. It would be safer if you don't eat here." So, I walked out. I do not understand how anything can say gluten free if there are no controls. That employee scared me out of the restaurant. I called corporate and they have not returned my call.

Very over priced and unfriendly toward questions. Just trying to order is a nightmare, even though the menu is labeled. They look at you like you are crazy for even asking how to order gluten free. Great concept, but too much risk of cross contamination for this Celiac.

Use caution - it's one of those chains that labels a lot of the protein and dressing options as GF when they still aren't safe for celiacs. Staff is transitory, so don't expect them to know what gluten is, you'll get questionable answers, e.g. ask how the chicken is prepared instead. I also worry about cross contamination from the toppings set up. The dressing chart is handy as it shows lots of allergy aware info.

I asked if their gluten free items were safe for someone with a gluten allergy and he said he didn't know, but probably wouldn't risk it. I ended up getting a make your own salad anyway. They use clean utensils and a clean bowl. it was alright, but i ate very simply, since i was worried about cross contamination.
