Their menu doesn't really give them justice on their gluten free capabilities. They have GF bread and can make most of their sandwiches GF. If you tell them you have a food allergy they take extra precautions like changing gloves and putting the sandwich on a special tray in their oven. I've been coming here every week for months now and never gotten sick. I love it!

Spuds are really good and large! Ask if they can use some of the fresh ingredients from the back to avoid cross contamination. Gluten free items are marked on the menu. They offer gluten free bread just make sure to ask for it. Great place with good food!

They have a gluten free bread option and all their sandwiches / spuds are marked when they’re gluten friendly.

Amazing service! The manager came out to take our order after we emphasized we had celiac disease. She also went back to make the entire order herself in a separate area to ensure it was celiac safe. Some of the kindest mostt careful people. I appreciated how safe they were for my girls and myself.

Staff was not trained on how to handle gluten sensitivities, so when I asked them to change gloves they didn’t understand why it was important. I was also given food on a dirty plate and I was impacted by cross contamination.
