I used to go to a Noodles and Co in MD and never got glutened. I went to this place and on my 2nd I got glutened plus my GF noodles were like mush. I'll pass on this place
Don't go here if you are very gluten sensitive. I have celiac and the past two times I went here, I got sick 30 minutes later. Not to mention, I found regular, gluten pasta in the bottom of my bowl after I had finished my meal, which means they definitely cross contaminate.
My 2 favorite dishes are pesto pisavera with GF fusilli or if you are a little hungrier, pad Thai with chicken (naturally GF, no modifications needed). Other dishes can be modified. Just do rice noodles or GF fusilli (for an up charge).
They do not have separate pans for their gluten free food. When I went, I had regular pasta noodles mixed in with my gluten free ones. If you are trying to cut back on eating gluten, this could work for you. However, if you need to avoid gluten for allergy or celiac purposes, I highly do not recommend going here.
I have celiac and am highly sensitive to cross-contamination. The staff was very knowledgeable and ensured me that they used separate pans and equipment to make my food. They offer a rice pasta and a gluten free fusilli which they can use to make pretty much anything on the menu including the pad thai. They do have a disclaimer saying they cannot guarantee no cross-contamination (as does every restaurant), but I wouldn’t be too worried about that since they do take many precautions to ensure the food is safe. I had the pesto with fusilli and it was absolutely delicious!
I ordered the penne rosa gf and asked how they cooked the pasta to make sure it wasn't with the gluten pasta (as I've been to restaurants do that) and they said, it's separate. I loved it and wanted something for lunch the next day so asked if they could make the buffalo mac and cheese. They said no bc the chicken has a crust but if I was will to wait a little they would bake the chicken and it wouldn't touch the grill. I did wait and it was good, even as a left over. They were very careful with my dinner and I'd go back.
Good rice noodles, but never consistent. Ive ordered chicken on the noodles and mistakenly got crusted twice. They do not understand the concept of gluten allergy. They have almost seemed annoyed when I tell them its an allergy when they ask. Update: ate there today and there was crust pieces in my bowl, have been sick the rest of the day.
They used to be GF celiac safe, and some are, but this particular location is bad about it. I find a stray noodle in my pasta more often than not, and when I've asked about it, I get a long lecture about how they can't make guarantees and "corporate has actually told us to worry less about it." If you are celiac with extreme sensitivity I wouldn't recommend this noodles location. Go to Austin landing instead.
They have 2 regular GF options, which are amazing. I love them both!! You can substitute the noodles for GF ones for any meal, but be warned of the sauces, if you do this option, as they may not be GF. They mark your food as an allergy, so they are knowledgeable if you talk to a manager (don't trust the teenager behind the till).
Ordered gf pasta with marinara and grilled chicken for my gf/DAIRY free grandson (his juvi-arthritis acts up when he eats these things) I told this to the counter girl. Didn't realize until I got home that they had sprinkled it with Parmesan cheese!
They were well aware of cross contamination. I was able to eat safely and they were good to me. I got a shrimp dish that was a bit on the spicy side because I didn't realize that when I ordered it. Overall, I'll probably stop here again if I need to eat in Missoula.
Noodles & Co. has an extensive gluten-free menu. Most pasta dishes can be made gluten free with either fazolli or rice noodles. The tomato basil bisque is also gluten free and delicious. I eat at this location frequently! My only complain is that there's not a location in downtown Davenport too. :)
Two years ago I found a full gluten pasta noodle at the bottom of my dish and was ill shortly after. Today we braved a second try and I was given the wrong dish. I type this as I wait for the stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea to start. The staff takes no precautions and I have been glutened on both my visits.
I found a piece of gluten pasta in my dish, mixed in with the GF fusilli. Luckily I hadn't started eating yet. I encountered the same problem at a different Noodles location (that time I did get very sick) so I avoid all locations now. Definitely not safe for Celiacs.
Do not eat here if you are truly celiac or intolerant. I tried it on 7/25 and got violently ill. Then, after my kids begged to come again, I called earlier today and spoke with a manager. She told me to specifically say allergy when ordering and that some employees can take that request and others have to get a manager. Came back tonight and ordered with Joseph (who also took order on 7/25) so I specified allergy and said celiac. A few minutes later, an employee name Aaron (very helpful person) advised ys that the gf fusilli noodles were out and offered rice noodles as a substitute. Went with him to the register to get a refund on what we paid for the upcharge and had him review our order to confirm allergy was never even entered on our order. So bummed that it was not taken seriously when ordering and the staff wouldn't protect someone just by hitting one button. Will be emailing the manager as well.
Manager was VERY knowledgeable but the cashier was new and NOT ready to be alone. Food came out with meatballs that are not gluten free, even the cashier knew that but still...anyway. All of the sauces were delicious, my only problem was the Fusilli GF pasta was very under done and super chewy:(, almost crunchy. This place has lots of options and I love the idea of having the gluten-free but the process needs some polish to be "friendly" to GF peeps.
Great food, but not good for bad allergies. They have messed my order up twice before. One time I found a regular noodle in my gf pasta and the other time they just gave me regular noodles! They can be trust worthy at times but certain employees just really screw up! Being an all pasta place makes it more risky, too much possibility for mistakes.
I am celiac. And the last 2 times I've ordered gluten free my food came with random regular gluten filled noodles mixed in my gf noodles. Last time I saw it before I took a bite. This time it wasn't until I was just about done eating that I found these random noodles. Now that I'm severely sick I'll never eat at Noodles again!
Dedicated space, knowledgeable manager but untrained staff lead to pasta being mixed with gluten pasta. Half way through meal, we noticed a few pieces of other pasta Update: After speaking with the manager, we decided.to try the restaurant again. The exact same thing happened. A non-gf noodle was mixed in. I had confirmed separate pans and strainers but it did not matter.
I have celiacs and eat here at least once a week. Never any issue just make sure you specify an allergy verses preference. You can check their gluten free menu for options. They have always been very helpful and per prior comments the only meat gluten free would be shrimp.
