I have a gluten allergy and have been working at Nelsons for the last 7+ years. We have a gluten free bread from a local bakery which is not certified gluten free but I have never had a problem with the product myself. There’s no extra charge for the bread and all the employees grab new knives, gloves, cutting boards, or whatever is needed to make your gluten free order safely!

I order from the salad bar all the time, and have never gotten sick. Ask them to change their gloves. Don't eat anything that touches "the board" - chicken and eggs are cut there. I always get the smoked turkey which is already shredded. Ask them to put the tongs down in the bowl, and not on the board. I also get dressings that are in a container and not open to things falling in it, although they do keep croutons and nuts on a separate table behind them. They have delicious GF desserts - especially the brownies. BEST SALADS EVER!
