Absolutely fantastic!!!! HUGE GF menu including the most amazing carrot cake for dessert. I have not had carrot cake in 5 years and it's my favorite. I got the chicken piccata and it was delicious. I literally can't say enough. The waitess brought me warm GF bread with olive oil....and they are super clean and very nice!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

This chain has always been good with my gluten and dairy allergies. However, they first reduced the gluten free menu to an allergen menu and now they have reduced that. They’ve made the gluten free selection limited to almost salads. Then I ordered a salad, and after eating it at the bottom I found a white creamy substance that may be dairy. Regardless, it shows that the faculty is not safe for crosscontainmination anymore. I was worried when I saw the limited menu and this proves my suspicions true.

I’ve gotten sick here so many times I just stopped coming. The manager kept apologizing and giving me free meals to make up for it, but my health just isn’t worth it. It may be OK to eat in, but my experience was with to go orders, and they consistently packed my food so it would be in the same bag as other, gluteny food (for my family), often under their food. This despite me always telling them to pack my items in a separate bag. Take-out is just too complicated for this restaurant, which in my time eating there never once explained packing rules to their host staff, and who ignored my pleas to protect the food I’d ordered from cross-contamination in the bag. The kitchen also made errors, like undercooking food (that I had to finish cooking at home). I live a half mile away, but after a year of fighting with them, I just can’t eat here anymore.

The server introduced themself and immediately asked if anyone at the table had food allergies, wrote them down, and asked any questions I had. I'm also dairy free, but they still brought out a gf roll and plain olive oil to dip (their usual oil dip has parmesan cheese in it). I had their jambalaya, which was huge and had amazing flavor! The manager brought my dish out separately from the others and verified gf/df before placing in front of me. An entire menu within their menu is dedicated to those with special diets. Can't speak highly enough of them!

This has been a mainstay for us until today. We had an awful experience here. They refused to accommodate our needs, as they only had a set brunch menu. Not only did they not accommodate us, they were rude and had little to no understanding of our gluten free needs. Sad to cross this off our go to list.

They are not quite like they used to be. In the past, the gluten free plates were a different color, the manager brought the food over and the servers were very aware of cross contamination. The last two times we have been the servers did not know what celiac was, th food was delivered together and the plates were the same. We asked numerous times to confirm it was gluten free and it was, but the care they used to take is now gone.

I used to love going to NYAJ. Have had a few poor experiences now, at least for this Warwick location. Burnt chicken. Over peppered spaghetti sauce. Over cooked gluten free noodles. And worst of all, their endless gluten free rolls are now small, dry and don’t have that fresh baked feel or taste. And to top it off, we had poor service. I won’t be going back nor recommending it again.

This restaurant offers lots of gluten free options including bread and pasta. The warm gluten free dinner roll was super soft and squishy, and the carrot cake was delicious and moist. Those two items are the best gluten free items I’ve ever had. You would never know that they were gluten free. Highly recommend this place.

I don’t think I got glutened but the food is not good here and I don’t feel good after eating here—not a full celiac reaction but definitely bloated, tired etc. It’s like a 1980s menu—chicken Parmesan etc. If I were eating a meal on a layover at an airport between two long flights I would be ok I guess with the meal I had just because I didn’t get glutened but I didn’t enjoy it. Also they delivered our entrees and totally forgot our apps until we asked. It’s basically just a restaurant for people who aren’t really into food. The waiter was nice though and they seem to be careful about cross contamination. This restaurant would probably work for older visiting relatives or kids.

All I can say is AMAZING. Just went in for burgers. The buns were a little dry like most gluten free, but the flavor is good. The burgers themselves were delicious as were the mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. My daughter got the kids meal gluten free mac and cheese which was to die for. Finished off with a piece of gf carrot cake. Our waitress was attentive, but not invasive. Manager brought my food to the table as I also have shellfish and dill allergies. I have never had this level of service outside of Disney World. Will be back, even if it is two hours from home.

And I'm not sure I have an issue with cross contamination at this point i haven't noticed an issue yet. This restaurant has a gluten free menu which gets me sooo excited now! Its actually a pretty wide variety of options too I didn't feel deprived at all! They brought me glute free bread too, i am not sure if its the same at all locations, but the warwick RI locations bread is bomb! I would recommend you try it for sure.

This has always been an easy place for me to eat. The gluten free options are fairly extensive. I am also dairy free. That limits the options quite a bit, but there are still several options to choose. The gluten free rolls are very good. However, friend ordered the Jambalaya. Not a dish they should have on the menu...just because it was not Jambalaya!
