Yum yum yum yum. That says it all. One of the best lunches I’ve had in a long time. My wife and I went here today for lunch - she got the Steakhouse Ranch and I got the Mexicali. The bowl was wonderful,, great flavors, a lot of food, and then even post the carbs. I could eat here daily and be happy. I’d highly recommend others check this place out. I did NOT get sick and didn’t have any adverse affects.

Staff very clear about allergens.

The menu indicates what contains gluten, and much of that refers to the wrap. Contents of wraps can be served in a bowl and thus gluten-free. I told the cashier I have Celiacs and he noted it on my order and instructed the entire line to change their gloves. This menu features hearty, healthy, and flavorful food - a good alternative to the sad salads celiacs get stuck with at many places.

Notes


"All of our salads, almost all of our drinks (the ones that do not contain our house-made cocoa malt powder), and bowls are gluten-free. If gluten-free catering is what you are looking for, we can help with large, family-style bowls of our best gluten-free menu items. We hate doing this since they’re some of our favorite items, but our Protein Bar-ritos cannot be made gluten-free as our wraps are made with whole wheat. From our breakfast menu, avoid our Oatmeal Bowls, as well as breakfast bar-ritos."

I had the spinach and quinoa basil pesto bowl and it was so good!! Almost everything on the menu is naturally gluten free. It's a great option for those who are looking for a quick healthy meal, I definitely will be back soon

Got super sick from this place. Everything is well marked and I told them about my allergy and they clearly didn't take it seriously. Might just be this location because I know people who have eaten at the other ones and been fine but this was BAD!

Great option near the museums for a quick lunch. Our group enjoyed the quinoa bowls. My child with celiac had no problems. Will return.

Loveeeeee their vegan protein power bowl and such a nice change of pace to eat quinoa instead of white rice. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because their hours are lame and I always seem to miss them.

I’ve come here for lunch half a dozen times and had no issues. Just make sure to tell them you have celiac disease and are very allergic to gluten. All of their bread ingredients are at the end of the line so there is reduced chance of cross contamination. The food all tastes great. Plenty of gluten free options.

Quite a few options. Had the Healthy Club salad and Healthy Nut smoothie.

Good food. Didn’t get sick here but also the service wasn’t completely reassuring—I had to explain what cross contact meant. Definitely thought I was gonna have to be sick, but everything turned out ok. I’d come here again, just be cautious.

I asked what the most popular bowl was and ordered that. The Mexicali bowl hit the spot just right with the seasonal shamrock shake (I didn’t feel guilty drinking it). Don’t let the menu throw you off, they listed glutened items with a G!

Good salads and bowls! My wife and I had lunch here. She is GF and I eat vegan. We both had salads we loved and I had a vegan chili bowl. My wife’s GF Caesar can with Parmesan “croutons”.

I love the Mexicali bowl! They mark things on their menu that do have gluten. I think they’re careful about cross contamination- I’ve eaten there a few times now.

Be aware certain menu items are not marked with a “G” contains gluten, that actually have gluten. For example, the chicken chili contains gluten but is not designated as such. The kids menu does not have one food item that is GF.

Many things on their memo are said to be gluten free or not contain gluten but if you ask the staff they say it will. completely misleading.

Protein bar clearly labels everything that's gluten free and vegan on their menu. The quinoa bowls and salads are all gluten free and delicious. They also have a few gluten free power scramble bowls during breakfast. Be careful with the signature drinks. The powder they use in some of them contains malt.

I eat at Protein Bar everyday for lunch and frequently breakfast as well. It is a great place for a healthy-conscious person to eat. A lot of their menu is quinoa or salad based. They also offer raw juices and don't serve any pop! Your body will thank you for eating at Protein Bar.

This place is great!! They have wraps, salads, and bowls, and a lot of them feature quinoa. A lot of items, including all of the quinoa bowls, are naturally gluten-free. Their menu features a little GF icon next to any items that are gluten-free. Plenty of vegan options are also available and indicated on their menu with a little V icon. Complete nutrition information is listed on their menu as well. Highly recommended!
