Snarf's is one of my go-tos because I love sandwiches, and they have gluten free bread options. The downtown location is my favorite for quality, but they all make sure to put gluten free bread on foil before putting through toaster (I'm not sure about their practices aside from that). I'm intolerant to gluten, so I am ok eating here, but I am not sure about safety for those with Celiac's.
Great sandwiches and despite a little note next to the register with a cross-contamination warning, I've never had an issue after several months of getting sandwiches there nearly every week. I haven't watched exactly how they prepare the GF sandwiches but they definitely do a glove change (if they don't ask if it's an allergy or a preference (they nearly always do), definitely ask for the glove change).
They have gluten free bread and a gluten free menu posted on their website. There is a high risk of cross contamination, which they disclose on the menu. They usually run out of gluten free bread around 7-8pm, so call ahead and check. I'm leaving a low review because service is terrible at both University City locations.
Best gluten free sandwich I've ever had...anywhere. Staff was knowledgeable (changed gloves, put sandwich on foil to reduce/eliminate cross contamination in the oven, etc) and gluten free bread is amazing. My only complaint is that Snarf's is not in Boston yet (I was only visiting Chicago).
NOT celiac friendly. Staff may be knowledgeable but they pull the meat and toppers from the same spread they use for the gluten sandwiches and I had to ask for them to change their gloves. I did not trust eating the sandwich so gave it to my non-celiac husband to eat.
The subs were amazing. The gf bread was very good and light. It didn't crumble when you bite into it. The bread only comes in 7" but I took my leftovers home for lunch the next day. I was perfectly happy with doing that.
Couldn't tell it was gf bread it was delicious. I got the Italian sub. They did not mark which sandwich was gf so it was a bit of a panic when it was delivered. Not sure if it's safe for celiacs cause of cross contamination - I did not ask. We ordered it through Uber eats & some of our food was missing but I dunno if that's the driver or restaurants fault.
Gluten free OVEN TOASTED sub sandwiches!!! The bread is amazing and they toast the entire sub after building it to give your bread that extra crunch that we usually miss out on with GF bread. They do ask if you're ordering for dietary reasons or allergy and made sure to change their gloves (thank you for understanding!!). I had the Italian and it came with many toppings that I could add including hot peppers. The price of the sub is a bit daunting at $10 but I can only imagine it's because they get the bread from a speciality bakery since it's in a sub sandwich form and far from a hot dog bun you typically find! I also was only able to eat about half of my sandwich since the portion was huge and the bread was filling so next time I will be splitting it with a friend. While Thundercloud has some decent subs, I would say Snarf's is WAAYY better because the bread is toasted which really holds the sandwich together and gives it an overall delicious taste. Their meats are of higher quality as well and offer more free toppings. There is also a location over by UT but I feel very lucky this location is near by my neighborhood and will be back many times more!
My food was made on the same surface as my friend's sandwhich, and the area wasn't wiped off before making my sandwhich. I wouldn't go back due to this reason, and because the sandwhich was not good
delicious is all I can say .....I walked in and I heard the angels choir ....a dedicated gluten free menu that mirrored the regular menu salads and home made salad dressing......it was delicious....took one for the road...it's a must try...a popular chain in the area....
Make sure to let them know if you have Celiac Disease, and to change their gloves, not to toast the bread, or use the same utensils. I was sick both times I tried to eat here - even though I stressed my sensitivity.
I love this place! Not everything on the menu is gluten free, but the staff are knowledgable. The girl that makes the GF rolls, is out of boulder, so it's all local goodies!It is not a dedicated gluten free zone, though I have never had any problems. http://www.eatsnarfs.com/pdfs/menu.pdf
