This place tries exceptionally hard to be celiac friendly... but... I don’t think they have full knowledge of how to do it! They pulled the veggies straight from the regular line, touch the sauce bottles with freshly gloved hands, then touch the g free wrap. It was very good, but not celiac safe!

Gluten free wraps are the best

While I think it is a little on the pricey side, the food was very good. The staff was knowledgeable, and warned me when I almost chose an ingredient containing gluten. They have gluten free wraps, salads, and the like, as well as tons of veggie/vegan options. All of their sauces are marked to indicate g-free, dairy free, vegan, etc. They have a menu of premade options, but you can also build your own like Subway or Chipotle. Everything is done in front of you, so you can tell if they're being cautious enough with your food.

The sauces and seasonings are marked GF,DF, and or vegan. Absolutely delicious food. Staff was super friendly and you can switch your wrap or bread for GF wraps. They also have bowls there as well in case you don’t want a wrap.

We ate here while visiting our celiac daughter at UGA. Excellent experience. The menu was marked with GF options and the staff preparing the food took time to explain the procedures they take to avoid any CC. They have GF wraps for the sandwiches! The food was fresh and tasty. Will return!

I was so pleased with the young manager here. After reading the reviews, I walked to the pita pit as my only real to-go lunch option while the rest of my group was getting food at the popular burger joint. The girl at the register wasn’t very knowledgeable about options, so she grabbed the manager, who very kindly walked me through my options and their handling procedures (flipping over AND cleaning the prep surface, protecting the wrap with foil in the pita warmer etc). When he placed my order, the other employees were quick to get started and didn’t protect the wrap in the warmer. He stopped them, pulled the wrap out, and taught them about what they needed to do for a gluten allergy. Then washed his hands, got new gloves and a new wrap, and walked his employees through the process. I did not get sick 🙂 and was very pleased that he took the time to not only protect my health and safety, but educate his employees too.
