I really wanted to like this place, however I have a dairy allergy as well as celiac. Three times there has been an challenge with the person taking the order (not educated in the menu or how to take a special request) and three different occasions there was miscommunication with the cook staff. I wasn’t interested in a free meal, just a safe place for me to eat and I seriously hate my disease and the inconvenience it is for everyone around me. The last time they messed up the order I had eaten half the meal before realizing it. Needless to say, I really tried to give them a chance because they were new but I can’t continue to take chances when the stakes are so high. I wasn’t able to attend the rest of my days activities and when I communicated it to the cook I wasn’t met with a very friendly apology.
As a vegetarian with celiacs, eating out is very challenging for me and I absolutely love sandwiches. Finding a place with gluten free and vegetarian sandwiches is like finding a unicorn. These sandwiches are tasty and unique and nowhere near where I live, but I’ve made the trek twice for them and thought it was worth it. I love the blueberry pesto sandwich. My only complaint is that the gf bun is so bland and fluffy. I would like more of the flavorful fillings and less bun. I grew up eating Mom’s homemade whole wheat bread, so I like bread with some flavor and texture to it. I know gf bread is a challenge, but I hope they’ll eventually come up with something better than this. Also, I find that the buns tend to be smaller than a whole sandwich. I’m a hearty eater, so even if I order a side I’m still hungry when I’m done, so it tends to make for an expensive lunch.
Fantastic food, knowledgeable staff and management that really understands gluten free. Most food is already gluten free. What isn't is kept separate. Pizza dough is even tossed with rice flour to ensure that no wheat is in the air. Great, safe dining in Rockville!
I have eaten here many times without any issues. They have plenty of great options as well
I looked at reviews on this chain and decided to give it shot despite having some unsavory reviews about cross contamination. Should have listened. I got a salad and as I was finishing up I found part of a crouton in my salad. Thankfully I didn't have a reaction but I will never eat there again.
Never had a problem at this Mod Market. I always order one of the hand carved plates (usually salmon with veggies). Very easy to customize and vegan are on the menu labeled clearly. I still always tell them I have celiac and I haven’t had a problem. Yum!
Read the reviews but was starving prior to a 5Am departure. Had the bacon breakfast sandwich on the GF bun.... took a few bites.. waited about 20 minutes and felt fine. Ate the rest without a problem. They did have GF items Clearly marked including steel cut oatmeal offerings that sounded good too. I would definitely feel comfortable eating here again.
A lot of reviews are saying it isn’t safe if you get pizza or sandwiches. I got the salmon curry bowl and explicitly told them it was a gluten allergy. It was yummy, fast, and I didn’t get sick. Order smart, communicate, and you should be fine!
I got in line and asked the cashier if they were able to accommodate gluten allergies. “We have gluten free bread.” I then asked if I got a salad if the meat would be able to be prepared on a separate part on the grill. “We have gluten free bread.” Guessing that’s a no for celiac-friendly employees and food!
Many of their menu items (salads, grain bowls, soups) are already gluten free, but sandwiches and pizzas can be ordered GF for an upcharge ($1.75 extra for my daughter's sandwich). The side of chips are not GF, but they offer 3 cookie flavors that all are. My husband and daughter thought the GF bread on her sandwich was very good, and both kids (one celiac, one not) liked the GF cookies. Great selection overall. Note: this location has only been open a short time and the staff had to check when we inquired about the GF chips. The menu is clearly labeled.
I stopped by and asked the staff about gluten-free options. They didn’t know anything other than that they had gluten-free bread and they did tell me everything was prepared in the same location. I wouldn’t chance it.
Awesome food and most of their menu can be made gluten free. Knowledgeable staff. They were happy to change their gloves. Gluten free bread is tasty. This is a chain, and they have other locations nearby.
I got the basil chicken sandwich at the Denver Airport. I had to pay extra for the gluten free bread but it tasted so good and fresh. The bread wasn’t dense and spongey like most. My husband who can eat gluten also liked my bread and he hates most gf stuff.
Poor selection of gf items. Mostly take out the bread. We didn't stick around to eat. Out of the three of us who, two gf, none of us found anything on the menu to make us want to stay. Can't offer on how the food tastes. Only that the prices were high for such a common menu. Definitely kitsch
Ordered mashed potatoes. When it arrived, it had a piece of macaroni mixed in. Luckily, I saw it before taking a bite. Was scared to finish my food. I asked at the front counter and they said the macaroni was right next to the mashed potatoes on the serving line.
We ate here twice in one day when we were vacationing in the area! So nice to have healthy choices! Our first cashier, Kaneesha, was friendly and extremely helpful. We felt very confident after talking to her. Our second cashier was the exact opposite and didn't even seem know what the words "gluten free" meant. So don't let your guard down here! The Margherita pizza was soft and delicious. But the upcharge for a whole pizza was $3.50. Also, GF sandwiches can't be ordered in the half portion for some made up reason to do with the bread. Despite the unfair upcharges and questionable service, we recommend ModMarket, especially if you're looking for healthy choices.
Pretty amazing food, I eat here often they have gluten free breakfast and lunch, I like the food, never have they messed up an order for me, as long as you tell them you’re celiac they take extra precaution, highly recommended
A majority of the menu is GF and clearly marked on the menu. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had the bacon & corn pizza, salmon bowl and the green chili & chicken soup. Everything tasted fantastic and I didn’t feel I’ll at ill (I am very sensitive). It is a little pricey but very worth the quality and they source locally. If we lived in town I would eat here as much as possible!! Would definitely recommend to anyone, not just GF people!
