    If I could give this restaurant 100 stars, I would! Impressed from the moment when we walked in the door and were automatically offered a gluten free menu. When we sat down, the waiter noticed the gluten free menu and asked if I had an allergy and explained that they clean the kitchen station and use clean utensils to cook the gluten free items. All of the staff was extremely friendly and personable. The manager, Will, was a very nice gentleman and made sure that we were happy with our food. The gluten free bread and dip was absolutely delicious! I had the chicken picatta and it was very good as well. This will be our go to when we are in the area!

    Food is fantastic with a bunch of GF options. They even bring out GF bread with a separate dipping sauce for people with Celiac. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and made sure the risk of gluten exposure was minimized. This is easily one of the best places I've been to for GF food.

    I ate there twice in the span of two days and also got a to go order. First time in three years I've been able to have bread to dip in oil and it was the best! The bun didn't hold up but it was the best tasting and even reheated well in the microwave. After eating a basket of bread I could only eat half my sandwiches. One of the best burgers I've ever had and the bacon so good! The main thing I liked about the chicken was the bread. They had to cut the chicken in half and double it up. Four stars is because I

    I've been gluten free for about a year but my mom has been gluten free for over a decade so I've been aware and experiencing gluten free for a while, Not Your Average Joe's has, by far, THE best gluten free bread I have ever tasted. All of the food is super fresh and abounds with flavor. They are also VERY accommodating with any food allergy, wheat, dairy, etc. I wish we had one in my home town in Florida, but good thing they don't, my kitchen would fall into disuse.

    Well it may be GF friendly BUT my husband and I ordered from the GF menu and get had an reaction. He missed 2 days of work. I complained, and Erik the regional manager personally delivered a $100 gift certificate which was nice of him but still bit weary of giving it another try to be honest.

    We just ate there tonight... amazing enough to motivate me to sit down and review them immediately! We were given fresh and hot gluten free bread and dipping oil as soon as we identified ourselves as gluten free. The gluten free menu is amazing and contains more options that I have ever seen at a restaurant.. we all split the Salmon, the Rosemary Scallops, Chicken Quesadilla (yes- gluten free!), and a delicious grapefruit sorbet. It was amazing- my six year old even had a hamburger on a gluten free bun and was beyond thrilled. The prices were reasonable and the food was simply beyond compare!!!!!!!!!!

    Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.

    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.

    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.

    My wife and I went there for lunch. My wife has Celiac and it is often very difficult to dine out on Cape Cod for that reason. This place was great, starting with a dedicated Gluten free menu. There are many excellent choices. The waitress, nothing that my wife had the gluten free menu asked if we wanted bread and informed my wife that they had gluten free roll if she would like that. Two different servers brought the bread and roll to the table with different shaped dishes containing their dipping sauce so as to avoid cross contamination. The same routine was followed when presenting the entrees. They definitely pay attention and the food was great. Bravo for the attention to detail.

    I'm new to the gluten free world. I don't have celiac but I'm very gluten sensitive/intolerant. Who knew. This place is great. Decent options on the menu from bread with a dipping sauce at your table through dessert. I just finished eating so I don't know about any cross contamination issues. They were very knowledgeable and friendly.
