This place is part of my weekly lunch rotation. I order online and make sure to substitute the noodles with the gluten free. I also leave a bold note that I have a gluten allergy. Mac and cheese, buttered noodles, and pad thai are all safe. I have at other locations had a stray gluten noodle, but no issue at this location. If you order in person and you say you have an allergy a manager now has to swipe a card to indicate it’s an allergy order.

I always order a dish with rice noodles, but every time there are a few pieces of regular pasta in it that is not gluten free.

Be careful. I have tried on several occasions to enjoy the gluten free selections and have been incredibly sick every time. I always tell them I have Celiac Disease and ask for them to please make sure they're using fresh water and seperate utensils and pans. I so wish I could safely eat here.

Marked my order as allergy. Knowledgeable staff about substitution options. Even offered to bake my chicken so it wouldn't have possibility of cross contamination from grill surface.

The staff take special note of any GF sensitivity or allergy (and have even asked me on multiple occasions when I have forgotten to specify) as well as notify on the receipt, the kitchen ticket, and the register of the nature of the GF sensitivity. The zoodles (zucchini noodles) are thin and have a great texture. The gluten free pipette noodles taste and feel just like a regular noodle, I couldn't even tell the difference! They also offer grilled chicken (verses crusted chicken) and other GF amenities. The one time my order was mistook, I was promised a free remade meal at my next convenience. The misorder I did receive was, luckily, still GF and tasted great!

They now offer a gluten free Mac and cheese option! I like to use the rice noodles instead of the gluten free shells. I have not gotten sick from cross contamination.

This used to be a great place for us to eat as my husband is celiac and he would get the pad Thai. The last 3 times we have gone he found a wheat noodle in his food while halfway through his meal. Not safe for celiacs.
