I have had good experiences at other locations of this franchise, but not in Harrisonburg. I was sick within hours of eating their gluten-free pasta entrée.

I thought the gf pasta was good. I got the pesto sauce with with grilled chicken, and I thought it was really, and didn’t have any issues.

On my visit to this location, there were many many mistakes relating to our gluten free orders. Both meals were ordered gluten free with extensive discussion with the server and both were initially brought out with regular pasta. When we pointed this out, the employee told us 'no, that's what our gluten free pasta looks like'. I insisted that it did not match the company's description and requested they double check. After acknowledging the mistake, a new GF meal was brought out for my husband within 10 minutes but mine took another 1/2 hour and was amazingly yet again served with regular pasta. We sent it back again and requested they package the 3rd try to go. When I finally began to eat at home a few hours after we had been seated, I found broken pieces of regular linguini mixed in with the GF rotini, suggesting that they cooked it in the same water or used some similarly sloppy prep procedure. Once the manager became involved, they definitely made it right from a financial standpoint (basically comping our whole meal) but I wouldn't have chosen to trade a free meal for the rest of the experience. It's a fairly new location and perhaps they will get their act together eventually, but for now I would not recommend for anyone who experiences ill effects from consuming gluten.

The GF menu is limited and expensive. They have GF rotini pasta. When ordering to-go, I order from the kids’ menu. The kids’ menu has GF rotini with red sauce. Salad without croutons is GF.

The pasta and sauce is more like pasta and water, there's nothing to the sauce, it is very boring. The salad is okay...
