    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.

    Overall Noodles n Co is pretty good. This location hasn't cooked the fusili noodles correctly anytime I've been there.

    Very good system intended to help protect GF diners. Managers have to swipe register acknowledging that a GF order was place and they presumably follow up with cooks to make sure precautions are taken. I've had mostly good luck, but there certainly has been times during lunch rush where they must not have cleaned cooking surfaces well and cross contamination has occurred.

    Great food and friendly, great service. They know what you are talking about when you tell them you have an allergy. Rice noodles work with any dish and now they have new gluten free noodles advertised on the tables.

    Noodles offers gluten free noodles but they don’t offer dedicated separation.... we got rice noodles and specifically told the manager it was for gluten allergy.... we found five macaronis in the rice noodles.

    Hubby & I have hashimoto's and have to be gluten & dairy free. Gabby was SUPER helpful in figuring out what we could eat. She spent a considerable amount of time with us and didn't make us feel like a bother. The food was really good; hubby said to mention that their iced tea was delicious too. Ordered Thai Noodle w/ Shrimp, Penne Rosa w/ gf pasta, no milk or cheese.

    I told the cashier that I was gluten free and she called the manager over and they put my allergy into the system to alert all the chefs to change gloves and other utensils. I ordered the pad Thai (naturally gf) and it was delicious and I had no issues whatsoever. A great place that is safe near campus!!

    Have choice of fusilli noodles, rice noodles, or zucchini noodles. Fusilli noodles are very good, had them in place of penne in Penne Rosa. Employees ask if allergy or preference when ordering gluten free and follow stricter procedures if allergy.

    Was going there about 1x a week and then the crew member “Brian” served my GF ASD child gluten. My child noticed the pasta looked different. I brought it back to the counter and he insisted the macaroni we were served was GF (but only the fusilli and rice noodles apparently are) so my son ate it all 😢what makes this worse is another crew person knew he was telling me misinformation when I came with the macaroni to the counter and he allowed us to be misguided. At a future visit this other person told us that he knew Brian was wrong. Double and triple check your order there as they ring it up, on the receipt (they will charge you $1.50 for gf noodles) and when it’s served. Was compensated only when I spoke to a shift Manager at the more recent visit- with 1 meal- not sure that was enough... could take 6 months to leave my son’s system. He’s been having problems answering questions a lot since (foggy brain?) 😢

    Went there several times with no problem.. then went once and did the same "gluten free due to allergy not preference". It was confirmed at delivery to the table. Half way through the meal I found Udon (wheat) noodles mixed in with my gluten free. The staff and manager's response was "opps, we'll refund you the cost of the dish". Will never go there again is that is how seriously they take celiac disease.. painful few days followed that lunch.

    They have many gluten free combinations. You can mix and match gluten free items. For the base they have gluten free noodles and zucchini noodles. I love the zucchini noodles. The staff are knowledgeable and everything is made to order. I asked them to use a clean pan and they said they always do. I’m not sure if that’s just always for gluten free orders or always always.

    I have been to noodles and Company several times, and have always had excellent experiences there! This is the only location I have been to since being diagnosed with celiac, but they have been wonderful every time. They change the water in our very clear and letting me know what is safe and what is not, including shared surfaces. Every dish I have ever had there is amazing, and while I wish more of their meat options were safe from cross contamination, I am never unsatisfied with what I am able to have. I attempted to order chicken on my dish last time, and was promptly and kindly notified by the staff that the chicken is on a shared service as gluten containing ingredients. I can’t say enough about how kind and courteous their staff are, not at all put off by the idea of accommodating a gluten-free order. I will definitely be a continued customer!
