I love eating here and love the gf Mac. I’ve never had a problem eating here and they seem to be very sanitary in the kitchen.

A good quick go to, especially for my teenage daughter. I enjoy the pad Thai and she gets gluten free mac n cheese. Never had a problem and it is not closed!

Pretty good experience! They have an allergen menu and can tell you what pastas and sauces can be made. The meat is grilled on the same stove top as other gluten items so I did not trust that. But the pasta is cooked in separate water and they use different utensils. The food was good and I did not feel sick after.

Had a good experience here. The employee marked my order as an allergy and confirmed a clean pan, utensils, and ingredients would be used. Felt fine after eating.

My mistake for ordering takeout from here, but they must share pasta water? Regular noodles were mixed into the GF.

When ordering I was ensured cross contamination would be avoided as much as possible. I felt comfortable with the people making my meal. It was fresh and hot

My two teens and I all have to avoid gluten. I am Celiac, my daughter has a full-blown gluten and gliadin allergy, and my son gets flu-like symptoms if he eats gluten. We’ve eaten at other Noodles & Company locations with no problems. So when I placed our order and explained that we needed 3 gluten-free Mac and cheeses with grilled chicken, I assumed the employees would be as cautious as they had been at other locations. I was wrong. Halfway through my son’s meal he noticed regular glutinous noodles mixed in with the “gluten-sensitive pipette” noodles. I took it to the register and showed them. They apologized and remade the dish, but my son had already been glutened and has been sick for several days as a result. Use extreme caution at this location. There is definitely cross contamination going on.
