I have celiac and have eaten here at least 3 times in the last couple of months (both carry out and delivery) and have never gotten sick. The pizza is delicious and it’s always cooked well and not burned, like some GF pizza places tend to do. I’m also pretty sensitive to cross contamination, and I have never been sick from this Marco’s location. I will definitely continue to eat here!
Their gluten free crust is pretty darn good. Even though there isn’t a dedicated gluten free space, the staff tries very hard to avoid cross-contamination. They have separate gf sauce scoops, pizza screens, and pizza cutters. They put the gluten-free crust directly on the pizza screen so it never touches the counter. But because they have regular pizza, they can’t say there’s no chance of cross-contamination. They avoid it very well usually.
I have been getting gf pizza from this location for several years. They consistently deliver a great pizza and take the gf precautions seriously. I have consumed a LOT of bad to mediocre pizza since my diagnosis, so I am thrilled to find a place I can count on for delicious and yummy pizza. One caveat, since Marco's is a chain/franchise, I would definitely go through the litany of questions (dedicated utensils, cooking mat, etc) at each location.
As far as gluten reaction, there was none which is great! The pizza taste was, meh. Mediocre at best. I got a deluxe style. There was waaaaay to much sauce and the toppings were just ok. Texture of the crust wasn’t bad though. It was nice to be able to order from my couch n have the pizza delivered but won’t make it a regular stop. But it’ll do in a pinch.
3 stars because the staff was honest and friendly, but she flat out said the gluten free crust is not safe for celiac due to high cross contamination. We did not order. I’m thankful to her for being upfront.
Worst experience ever tonight! I have been ordering gluten free pizza here forever. Today when I picked up my pizza it did not look right. I asked if a new one could be made, because my daughter can get extremely sick. After I gave it back to the sales associate not less than two min later the manager yelled gluten free person. I went up to the counter. He threw the pizza back on the counter and said it is gluten free and walked away. Did not care about gluten free precautions at all.
They have gluten free pizza crust. They were great and added extra sauce and cheese for us. I am thankful to have another option for pizza. My husband got a thick crust "meat lovers" type pizza and he said it was also delicious. They were very fast. We called it in and they had it ready for us when we got there 10 minutes later.
Offer GF crust, separate utensils used(cooking sheet/pizza cutter) but still other non GF items prepared in the kitchen. They give the warning of "this is not a dedicated kitchen, not safe for Celiac", explained CC to the person taking our order (Brandon). He said he would use separate toppings not already on the line so that there would not be CC. Felt fine afterwards. Giving 5 stars because he made the GF one first and used toppings not already on the line. Brandon was also very friendly and accommodating!!
This was the first time we tried a take out pizza with my son since he was diagnosed last year. They took precautions to get new sauce out and different utensils. He had no reaction. They said to always talk to manager when ordering.
Their Gluten Free Pizza is SO FREAKING DELICIOUS!!! The crust is perfect! And their sauce and toppings are incredible as well! Also, I felt it does reheat well if you throw it in the oven at 380 until hot! Going to be coming to this Marcos often!
Really good gluten-free pizza in a decent size (12" medium) for a decent price, something that's hard to find around here. Only Brunetti's Express way up in Mechanicsville has a larger gluten-free pizza. There is a risk of cross contamination, but the kitchen is very clean and they appear to take precautions to try to avoid it. Definitely worth a try.
I am really sensitive. I have never had problems, great dough high quality! they will add they're medium coupons to the GF
I think they're new to the gluten free game as their website didn't even show it. I called and they offer a gluten free medium crust. Was delicious and I haven't had any type of reaction. They aren't a dedicated gluten free facility though so they put a warning sticker on the box. They do take precautions as best they can not to cross contaminate but they just don't guarantee it. Anyway, delicious pizza and I haven't had any type of reaction. They deliver as well. I will be back.
Decent local chain quality. Manager seemed very knowledgeable about GF needs and assured me they are careful. Their GF prep area is not totally isolated but I did not suffer a reaction to the pepperoni pizza I had yesterday. I would approach cautiously if you are super sensitive.Their crust is pretty good and the sauce was decent. I'm quite happy with the amount of cheese. It's the same amount as some places call extra cheese.
This location does have medium GF crusts as of this review. I thought it was definitely above average compared to the other chains.
