I ordered online and gluten free bread wasn't available. Advertised 12" gluten free pizza was barely more than 8" - comically small for a $20 pizza. Salads are premade but several are gluten free.

Great quality the pizza is even good re heated which isn’t usually common for gf pizza!

The pizza and grinders here is incredible and the people are awesome!

The pizza dough is still lighter almost like traditional pizza crust and not as dense as other places!

Ordered the 8-inch ham and turkey grinder on a gluten free bun. Bun was toasted and cheese was melted. Bun held up remarkably well. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Just stopped at this location (Grand Ledge) for the first time. I was expecting my grinder to be prepared on an Udi's sub bun from Sysco only to be very pleasantly surprised with a HOMEMADE GF sub bun from a bakery in E Lansing!!! How awesome! And extra delicious!!

I had their gluten free pizza. The crust was way more substantial than most GF crust. I really enjoyed the pizza. They also have GF grinder buns. I didn't try them but the next time I'm in the area I will! Wish GF pizza wast so pricey though.

Menu is clearly marked with red next to any menu option that is gluten free or is available GF with a modification. Menu is also available online to “plan ahead”. Fries & Nachos are GF. Most pizzas and sandwiches become GF with a crust or bread substitution. Pizza crust is great -very thin. Bread is ok. Salads are GF without croutons and all but one salad dressing is GF. The kitchen is in open view of the counter so you can watch them make your order. GF pizza and “grinder” sandwich go through the oven conveyer on new aluminum pan and pizza was placed in to-go container on same pan to take home which is great for reheating. Myself and another celiac (who is extremely sensitive) both ate pizza with no reaction. I have also had sandwich without reaction. Yes, there is a sign that says they don’t recommend celiacs eat there because of possibility of cross but, honestly, I think that is more liability protection than anything for them. Of course any kitchen that is not dedicated has the possible of cross even if they are careful but that is a chance I am willing to take when I see a restaurant that takes the needed precautions as they do - especially when you can watch the process.

After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try, although I was still very nervous. I had the chicken grinder on a GF bun. It was amazing. No symptoms of gluten, not even a tummy rumble, and I'm extremely intolerant. Tried a second time with the GF steak grinder and had the same result. Delicious. Would highly recommend to anyone intolerant of gluten.

EDITED: I went back tonight and ordered another GF grinder and wanted to try the GF pizza. Thankfully I was watching because I saw my food handled WITHOUT CHANGING GLOVES. I told Dean, who was at the counter that I couldn't eat it and he offered to have them remake it, but would be a 45 minute wait (had already waited half an hour). I asked for my money back and as he was processing the transaction told me that their health department says they don't have to change gloves because they're not touching flour. I left and will never return. Their employees need to be trained on cross contamination prevention and ACTUALLY FOLLOW IT. I cannot imagine what would have happened had I not been watching.

First and most important, my celiac son greatly enjoyed the pizza and had no reaction, so good to go! Secondly, the rest of us who are not celiac agreed it was the best GF pizza we have yet tasted, so a winner all around!
