You can order your food gf and they will ask if it’s a preference or an allergy…but I definitely got glutened last time I was there. Other times I’ve been fine, so it’s kind of hit or miss.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!! I ordered a dish to go, but asked them to use the gluten free noodles, put on the order "PLZ gluten free!", and also asked when picking it up to make sure it is gluten free. The girl replied "well yeah, it's the pipette noodles", even though she wasn't the one that made it. We are traveling, to I ate two huge GLUTEN ravioli in the pasta dish in the dark in the car before realizing they had put BOTH kinds of noodles in my bowl. Without a miracle, I will be DEATHLY SICK for days!!

DO NOT GO HERE. Seriously a complete and utter lack of understanding of gluten sensitivity. After watching them prepare my wife’s food in all the exact same areas as the regular noodles. They brought it out and I explained that is not gluten free, the manager at the time apologized and brought it back. I again went out to watch them make it. The manager explained to the person cooking we were returning our food. They both laughed and shook their heads. Seriously?!? The person preparing the food then started to cook it the same way, in the exact same areas as before. In the past when eating at Noodles when we brought up a “gluten allergy” a manager had to come and verify the order with their code. I have no idea why this is not in place at this store. This whole store needs a complete retraining. I will be contacting the store manager Monday morning for the utter lack of respect and understanding of gluten free allergies.

Not at all friendly to Gf. Staff had no idea what Gf was even though it was listed in the menu. Only gave one star because I had too. Would not recommend.

Really not careful at all. They are known for their careless handling of gluten free things. I’ve been really sick after eating there.

They are so careful here! Love them, best gluten free kitchen in town. They switch out pans, and the rice noodles are super yummy! I get sick with cross contamination easily - have never here! Would trust them for sure!

Obviously no cross-contamination guarantees but the manager did my order herself. They use specific pans to cook the gf pasta and the Mac and cheese was very good. Didn’t feel sick after. I would go back considering the price and the speed.

Ordered an entire meal for 4 that was all gluten free due to 3/4 of us having celiac. Had a side of chicken for one of the shared meals and 5 min in to eating, one of the employees came out with new chicken and said this one is actually gluten free - ok… hadn’t eaten the first one yet. Towards the end of the meal, questioned if one of the other meals was in fact GF. Brought up the meal to the counter and they said it was NOT gluten free noodles used in that meal. All young people working there that clearly did not understand the importance of dietary restrictions or illness that will follow. Did get a full refund and the manager’s number that I will follow up with.

They have a GF corn noodle and rice noodle options. Make sure to tell them you are Celiac, or they may not take as much care for a gluten “allergy.”
