Review


The staff was accommodating with answering questions about ingredients for multiple food allergies, and they said they can mark gluten-free orders as an allergy and use separate gloves, knives, etc. I got the impossible burger on gluten-free bread (no gf bun). The bread was your standard gf packaged bread, but the burger was good and I didn’t have a reaction.

I asked about the flourless chocolate cookie, and the person working at the counter said that while it doesn’t have gluten ingredients, it’s processed with the other ones and therefore not safe. Overall, I appreciated how knowledgeable and honest they were.

I’ve always enjoyed Mendocino Farm’s food even before Celiac disease. It’s so fresh and full of flavor. They carefully noted that I had an allergy. Each meal came in a separate bag. One of my favorite stops for a quick AND healthy meal.

I do love this chain and their food. However, the potato salad side is NOT GLUTEN FREE. It says it is on Uber Eats, but their website says it is not. I ordered it and couldn’t figure out why I got sick. Everything else I have had from here labeled GF has been safe and tasty.

The menu notes gluten-free options and the wait staff is extremely helpful! Very healthful options and glute-free toasted bread is available for all sandwiches. Wonderful food!
