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.
loved going here until they told me that the chicken they used was cooked on the same grill as gluten things.....making it not gluten free anymore.
I love them. I always get the pesto with GF rice noodles. Delicious and the staff is knowledgeable.
I have been eating there for 2 years and have never been dissatisfied with any of there meals. Lisa helps me all the time and is always great. All the employes work very well together and I will always highly recommend eating there. We have our lunches catered to feed everyone ant Ray Citte RV. They all loce it.. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ......
I love the med salad here. I get it at least once a week. I also omit olives, sub cheddar in for the feta. The dressing's tasty. Some options to try: tomato bisque soup, the med salad hold the pasta (it comes in it,) thai curry soup, chinese chop salad (wontons are probably gluten free, can be omitted,) caesar salad no croutons, seasonal salads (varies, check ingredients.) Dessert? rice krispy treats available, possibly gf rice cereal. If you are also dairy sensitive, thai curry soup and chinese chop salad are dairy free. Concerned about cross contamination? Avoid the asian items/rice noodles all together, they're probably cooked in the common water. If they weren't gluten contaminated, I'm confident gf would be listed on the menu as a highlight or selling point, much like vegetarian options are. However, it never hurts to ask for new water, new pot. Some places are happy to accommodate you, if you're upfront that you're willing to wait a few extra minutes.
Had the Penne Fresca and hoped they would use a gf penne pasta but they just substitute the rice noodles they use for the Pad Thai instead. Disappointing but not a big deal. The noodles and chicken were a bit dry, but not a deal breaker. The big problem is that there was clearly some cross contamination as I experienced an immediate reaction after I finished eating and ended up with a migraine later on (both symptoms that I only get when I eat gluten in a significant amount). Perhaps the noodles were cooked in the same water as regular noodles, I'm not sure, but I do know that I won't be back.
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.
Drove here based on 5 star rating. Was told chicken is unsafe due to cross contamination on the grill despite telling them we have a legitimate allergy. Have never had this issue in our home state, so not sure why food cannot be prepared safely here. At any rate, I would question the safety of this place for Celiacs for sure!
if you have celiac disease, you cannot eat their "gluten free" pastas. they are cooked in the same pans as normal pasta.
We ate at the one at Mall of America. My granddaughter was recently diagnosed with Celiac and we asked about their gluten free options. They were very knowledgeable and the pasta with spaghetti (or marinara) sauce was really good. We had ordered it with meatballs and they cam to the table and told us these weren't gf ones so that was a nice touch. Good that the people cooking are knowledgeable. The mac and cheese option wasn't as great but it was still good enough that she finished it. They gave her a rice krispie bar as a side and we couldn't confirm this was gf so she ended up giving this away. They also don't have a gf salad dressing which would have been nice. Had they had more than the pasta option, would definitely have given them a 5.
The guy working the register was incredibly friendly. He was being so cautious that he rang up the gluten free order completely separately to make sure there was no confusion. The food was good and our child with Celiac disease was thrilled to have a new place to eat and enjoyed the meal. Based on our experience I would have given it four stars (knocking off a star for cleanliness for poop smeared on the toilet and the wall in the bathroom stall and that the restaurant wasn't busy and yet there were several dirty tables with dishes on them that were never cleared while we were there), however after we got home our Celiac got very sick and we suspect it was gluten contamination. For that reason I cannot recommend this restaurant for anyone with Celiac disease and we won't be returning, at least to this location. It's a shame.
I had the Penne Rosa with gluten free fussili pasta and grilled chicken. Didn't make me sick! The pasta and sauce were just as good as the regular, but I was disappointed with the grilled chicken. Tasted bland and rubbery. Prior to this I always got the Parmesan Crusted chicken and it is much better. Alas it is not GF and the substitute of grilled chicken wasn't great.
Definitely not safe for celiacs. I found a macaroni noodle in my gluten-free fusilli noodles. Their only response: "we can't guarantee anything." They had asked when ordering if it was for an allergy, to which I responded that it was. That apparently does not warrant any extra care.
I have been to several Noodles and Company locations with my family. Two of my children and myself are gluten intolerant. Three visits ago I ordered my daughter Gluten Free spaghetti. When we got it home she complained that it contained meatballs and wouldn't eat them. I didn't remember the spaghetti having meatballs in the past, but didn't think much of it. My husband placed a takeout order a few weeks later and I really didn't think much of it when the spaghetti did not contain meatballs. The third time we ordered, the spaghetti again had meatballs when we got it home. My husband said to me, "They told me last time the meatballs have gluten in them." So, I called and asked and sure enough I was told the meatballs have gluten in them. My husband had to go back to the store to get two new spaghettis as these were now cross contaminated. When he arrived the manager told my husband that he "should have specified when ordering." Since when do you have to specify not to put meatballs (that I didn't know contained gluten) on a GLUTEN FREE spaghetti?! I didn't say, I would like spaghetti with gluten free noodles. I said, "I would like a GLUTEN FREE spaghetti." So angry that I almost fed it to my son and glad my daughter wouldn't eat the one a few weeks prior. And to blame their mistake on us? Ridiculous! Also, when my husband got back home with the replacements, they had only given us one instead of two. We will not be back. Big time fail.
We've had good luck with this chain, and have eaten at this location before. But tonight we informed the staff that our 5-year old had celiac, and we'd like all of our food made with the GF fusilli, new water, the works. They said that wouldn't be a problem. When they handed us our food we asked again, and they assured us that everything was GF. Two bites in to her mac (fusilli) & cheese, we spotted regular (gluten) macaroni mixed in. We called the restaurant to complain, and were told that our order was marked in their system as a gluten-free "preference," not an "allergy." Beware- Not sure we'll go back.
Yummy gf pasta. But I feel bad after I eat here maybe 50% of the time. A no for me, if very sensitive.
My pasta was good, but I was definitely afraid of cross-contamination
Started asking questions about their use of gluten free pasta. Was told rice noodles are cooked in separate water. Then they pulled their allergy sheet to tell me what meals have gluten free sauce. Then discovered they have an allergy button attached to my order to take precautions. Was so excited to try, but my Nima test showed too much gluten for me to eat.
I ordered the Mac and cheese with gluten free noodles, and informed them I had celiac. The manager came over and approved the order and told the kitchen in front of me. We received our food quickly and I was enjoying it very much before my server came over and told us we had been given the wrong order and I was in fact eat the regular Mac and cheese. She asked if I still wanted MY order and I told her to just box it up knowing I would have my head in the toilet soon. She refunded my $5 meal, but left the other $10 meal on the bill, and the manager was too busy to talk apparently so I just hurried out.
I've posted on here before but I was recently diagnosed. Since then I have gotten sick every time I've eaten here. There is just no way they can avoid cross contamination. That being said, the food is great and it would be an awesome place for NON-CELIAC gluten intolerant people. NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY!
Excellent place for gluten-free noodle dishes!
Chicken pad Thai is awesome! The kitchen isn't careful of cross contamination. I've found bits of other noodles in my food. Thankfully my sensitivity isn't as serious as others who are diet restricted. I wouldn't be able to have lunch with my sister here who has lupus and can't risk the cross contamination, so for that reason they get four stars otherwise it would have been five.
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.
