The menu selection is awesome. Food was amazing and the bread with dipping oil was to die for!!
This place is fantastic!! There is an entire Gluten Free Menu. A full menu not just salads or burgers! Chicken parm, scallops, lots of G F pasta plus lots of good sides plus desserts not just ice cream. Staff is knowledgeable about GF. And kitchen understands cross contamination. Very good will come again. Fresh food nothing canned. Prices are good considering the large portions. Will not be disappointed
Amazing! Our waitress was so accommodating when she found out that I was the GF one out of our party of 6. She brought me GF bread to start and even asked if I needed separate dipping oil. When I ordered she verified that it was gluten free. They even had a separate person drop off my meal and he verified again it was gluten free. I’ve never been out to eat and felt so normal! Such a great experience!
The menu is to die for ! The bread and dipping oil is heaven .
My waitress made sure to confirm I wanted GF fir Celiacs
I wish I had a gluten tester like the other reviewer, because after eating here I ended up becoming VERY ILL for a long time and the only thing I could think of was they must've fed me straight up gluten. Yes, the way they behave in the front of house make you feel safe, and the gf selection is huge, but whatever is actually going on in the kitchen is NOT safe for Celiacs in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been sicker in my entire life like I was after eating here. I struggled with writing this review, but I feel like reviews like this are important because places like this are why I never eat out anymore.
First restaurant to offer warm gf rolls along with the the regular rolls!! They are delicious and soft and you can ask for a separate oil dip! The gf menu has lots of variety and the food is always delicious!
I'm so sorry but I'm going to have to give this rating. The menu looked great; huge gf. The food looked good. The staff was amazing. Chef and 2 managers talked to us. First dish came back with gluten after testing with Nima. 5/6 of us had already eaten. Tested next 5 dishes. All had some gluten (one was high). Tested this later with EZ gluten strips. Same result. May be from airborne flour. They are trying very hard and want to do this right but something went wrong. 4 of us had small reactions the next day but were minimum bc we only ate one thing. Could have been worse.
Never had a problem when eating here. Awesome gluten free rolls and you're not heavily restricted to what you can eat. Will certainly be a loyal customer! Worth the 40 minute drive for me.
Very friendly and attuned to needs of those with Celiac. Great GF bread and dedicated GF menu. Will come back!
Come here all the time without any reaction. They seem to really have a good understanding of Celiac and cross contamination.
Just moved here a week ago and LOVE this place! Delicious rolls (you can purchase a pack if you want), food and great service. They are extremely careful.
So, I did get glutened here, but I really don't think it is something that normally happens. That is why I am still giving them a 4 star. Ordered the Ahi Tuna Wontons. Someone in the kitchen made a mistake and they put regular soy sauce on it. They actually caught the error, but not in time. The manager came out asked me how sensitive I was. I have celiac, so, pretty sensitive. He was very upset that it happened. Our whole meal was free and he took my number to call me the next day to see how I was. We are always taking chances when we go to any restaurant. I really appreciated their honesty and they really could have not said anything to me at all, butnthey made a point to come and talk to me and I was really disappointed, but I could tell they were all very disappointed too. Even the server was so apologetic. I would still recommend this place, but if you get any Asian flavored food, make sure it is GF soy sauce. Side note: The GF onion bread and oil dip is amazing.
Dedicated gluten free food area Very safe for celiac
We were visiting the area and found the this great restaurant. They have gluten free onion roll bread and an olive oil/Parmesan dip that is awesome. I would come back just for the bread/dip. I ordered the Burger and green beans. Burger was great the green beans were fair. I also ordered a GF Carrot Cake to take home. Friends that did not eat GF eat the Mustard Crusted Chicken and said it was great. Will definitely come back if ever in the area.
The food was great! I am gluten sensitive and got a plate of Mac and cheese with grilled chicken which was terrific and my brother who has celiac had a burger with a side of Mac and cheese. The only reason I'm giving a 4/5 is because the service was pretty slow considering it was later and their were very few others in the restaurant. 👍👍
The bread with the dipping oil was worth the visit. I had the scallops which were very good but if it wasn't for the bread I would have left hungry as it was a very small meal. The other diners with me weren't as happy with their meals (not gluten free meals). The salmon was dry (which I have had before and I agree) and I was told the beef dish was tough.
GF menu was offered as we were being seated without us even asking. We had awesome warm rolls with Parmesan dipping oil. Waiter checked to see if fries were GF but were not as he said there was no dedicated fryer. Burger was really good with garlic mashed potatoes. Lots of options here! Will be returning
One of my top two favorite places!! I've never had a bad meal or experience here. Their gluten-free bread is to die for and their gluten-free menu goes on for miles. The management is very concerned with gluten-free customers and usually bring the meals to you. I only got sick once, which was my own fault. I ordered the side of rice which has dairy in it; and I am also lactose intolerant! Whoops. Other than that there is nothing to complain about. Their takeout is just as consistent as their eat-in service. Never had any CC issues, although they sometimes forget to take cheese out of my order! The Waldorf salad and Grilled Chicken Sandwich are my favorites! Highly recommended.
Warm gluten free biscuit-like bread with a separate plate of olive oil to enjoy before my meal for free. So good! I'm gluten intolerant and did not get sick.
Amazing menu so many meals to choose from. Chef came to the table to reassure me that my meal was going to be made to perfection.
Very knowledgeable about gluten free. Super friendly and lots of options. Chef came out to speak to me personally before cooking my order. Will be back for sure!
My husband and I eat there 2 to 3 times a month. Never had a problem. Seasonal menus often have gf options.
My favorite gluten free restaurant by far! They have lots of options.... many more than most restaurants! They are very careful and attentive. The gluten free rolls are awesome and most of the time they bring them to me without me even asking! I see that they recently added gf carrot cake to the menu, too!
We were in town for a hockey tournament and found this place using the find me gluten free app. There was quite a bit on the GF menu. The roll while waiting for our meal as well as dinner was delicious!
Not Your Average Joe's was definitely a good experience. I was so excited to get rolls before my meal like everyone else always does. I've never been to a restaurant that offer gluten free rolls before a meal. That alone was enough for five stars, because of the extra thought that went into the planning of the gf menu. Besides the rolls, my meal was excellent. I got the turkey blt. The turkey was cooked perfectly and the bread was delicious. the best part was that I did not get glutened!
They have a great GF menu. They serve GF rolls that are awesome. I have been here 3 times and never had a problem. All of the servers are educated well. This is my favorite restaurant!
The food here is great! Lots of options on the gluten free menu and the bread was really good too
This is my favorite gluten free place to eat! My dinner was delicious and the gluten free bread was an awesome extra along with my own oil
Great turkey club!
I really liked that there was gluten free bread for before my meal and my server knew to offer me my own dipping sauce without my asking.
I’ve seen great reviews about this restaurant, but I honestly wasn’t impressed. I don’t think the gluten free menu was very big. They advertised as having gluten free chicken parmesan, but all it consisted of was chicken with some melted cheese on top. The food was bland and lacked flavor. There are better places than this to go for gf dining.
OMG the Gluten Free bread is SO yummy! So soft, delicious and spongy... not dry and crumbly like most GF bread. The GF Chicken Piccata was Awesome!! They have a separate GF menu (orange) with lots of GF options... even Dessert! I posted photos but not sure where they went.
Appetizers, many meal selections and dessert options all gluten free. Also GF bread and dipping oil/parm cheese at the table. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Not everyone at our table ordered GF. Manager brought out all GF dishes to ensure they were correct and not cross contaminated.
The staff was very accommodating, even had delicious gluten free starter bread! Wide variety of food on their GF menu, including pastas that tasted like regular pasta. Passionate about allergies and very knowledgeable about celiacs. Would recommend to anyone gluten free or not, very good experience!
Soooooo good for celiac! We had the GF pasta 4-cheese with the sausage option. Didn’t get sick and it was good! lots, Lots, LOTS of options! A fantastic place which is cognizant of celiac and GF people!
Best GF experience ever! Very big GF friendly menu with GF knowledgeable and accommodating staff!
Joe’s has an extensive GF menu, GF bread and GF rolls (both caramelized onion), and GF pasta, however, depending on the wait staff and how busy it is, you need to be careful to ensure you meal is actually prepared GF. I have had a few instances where I have asked the staff who delivers my meal if it is both GF/DF and they were unsure about one or both allergens. Ultimately, an awesome menu but you need to be proactive about advocating for yourself.
It has been 3 months and I must say Joe’s has done an awesome job at redeeming themselves. I contacted the head office and they were wonderful at addressing the issue ( see below). I have eaten there 4 times since June. They put in the computer that I need to speak to the manager before ordering due to gluten. The manager makes sure the kitchen is aware and then he brings the food out. I don’t know if there has been a change to the kitchen, but in the past 8 months, I have had issues with cross contamination. Twice with barley in my food, which they said was due to a cutting board to close to the gluten food, and tonight I found a piece of pasta in my green beans. The manager said chances were that it was regular pasta. I loved this place and trusted them. Love the place! They actually have a menu that has quite a few choices. They seem to understand about celiac and gluten intolerance. Each time my meal was brought out separately.
An entire separate menu dedicated to people with gluten allergy/intolerance. I felt so welcome! They even have gluten free bread to snack on. My waitress was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and gluten in general.
My daughter, mother and myself are wheat and gluten sensitive. My daughter also has a dairy allergy. We received Excellent service. The staff was very accommodating. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. This was the best GF meal we have had eating out in a long time. Will be returning here soon.
Love this place! And, the food is yummy. The carrot cake is amazing.
I've been here twice this spring and have unfortunately had cross-contamination symptoms both times. The first time I visited, my GF bread was delivered with obvious residue from the regular onion bread on the base of the roll - it seems like they may not know to change their gloves. The second visit, I opted to forgo the bread, but felt mildly ill 24-48 hours later, which is my usual response to cross contamination. I'm extremely sensitive, so those who are not may have better luck!!
The waiter brought me warm spongy delicious gluten-free buns and Parmesan dipping sauce - and I was in heaven! That alone was enough - so delicious! Then my hamburger in a gluten-free bun came, and I was so happy to enjoy that rare treat. The staff are very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They told me the fries are not gluten-free so that was a disappointment - I hope they can change that in future. Overall, it was a wonderful experience! I’ll definitely go back!
Incredibly celiac and allergy friendly. There are few celiac friendly restaurants in Woodbridge, but this is a safe place with knowledgeable staff. They have a large GF menu, and if you say you have celiac the manager/chef will probably come by or may even wait on you. Several good experiences. Did have one waitress once who was a little off her game since it was a very busy late night and slipped up with regular bread, but I checked before eating it since I’m careful, but it was a good reminder to be extra vigilant.
Amazing GF menu selection: appetizers, burfgers, pasta, dessert. Had a hard time choosing but went with 4 cheese pasta with added steak tips. Bread and dip were delicious.
We were excited to go here after reading the reviews but were sorely disappointed. The utensils and plates were dirty, our waters had floaters in them and my celiac daughter was ill right after she ate. She had the gf bread which a piece looked like it had some green mold on it (she didn’t eat it)and had a hamburger and fruit. Hamburger was not good and bun was average. Not impressed with serving staff either. Would not recommend d for celiacs.
Great food. This location in Silver Spring was a little chaotic. We had all the gluten free bread and cider and seafood pasta he could eat, but he was glutened and had a headache and issues within a couple of hours. No problems at other locations.
The staff takes gluten allergies/celiac disease very seriously. The manager has to personally deliver every gluten free meal ordered to ensure its safe. I had the gf bread with dipping sauce (they brought me out my own separate dipping sauce dish), Thai lettuce wraps, and the burger on the gf bun. All were delicious!!! The gf bread is really the star. I had no problem afterward and didn’t get ill!!
The food was VERY good, but service was absolutely poor. The service was poor enough that the manager got involved and comp’d our 4 person meal plus a free dessert. The appetizer bread and dip was DELICIOUS! And save a piece for the tomato basil soup. I didn’t love the rosemary mayo on the turkey club, but the sandwich itself was great. My family is all GF(true celiacs) and had the 4 cheese pasta, piccato and jambalaya with NO complaints 👌🏻 the gf carrot cake was a nice change for dessert options.
