For someone that has a gluten sensitivity but not celiac, this is an ok option. They call it gluten friendly after they open the gluten free bread from the packet. You can ask them to change their gloves, but be aware they have grabbed meats and cheese while putting on regular breads and put it back into the container, so there may be crumbs. I just like having the option to having something while at the hospital. It’s the only subway I have found that actually carries the gluten free bun.
No precautions taken. Uses same meat with bread crumbs in them etc. after me coaching them through the process, I tried it. The bread is horrible and dry. It crumbled into pieces, it was so bad that we all actually made a joke out of it.
Manager makes sure that the staff is highly trained in providing as safe of a gluten free sandwich as possible. They wash hands, use new gloves, and lay a fresh surface to work on in front of you. I like that they don’t go in back where you’re unsure of the precautions.
Other subway locations in the area will charge the price of a footlong sandwich and two portions of GF bread. The owner of this Subway refuses to do so, and apparently requires staff to charge for two six inches instead. The GF bread charge is expected, but refusing to ring it up as a footlong is ridiculous and adds up on top of an already expensive sandwich. Would highly suggest other Subway locations in the area, rather than this one!
The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten-free options. They will ask you if you would like your food prepared from the bean or from food preparations that have not been exposed to bread. They also have gluten-free brownies and two kinds of gluten-free soups if they are served that day.
I called before going to Subway. The person I spoke with was very knowledgeable about GF. f you mention gluten "allergy", they use their allergy protocol to avoid contamination. I was told by her to observe them for glove change and cleaning the work service, just in case. Indeed, they were quite careful.The only negative is that they had no GF bread, but given the location in a small town, they probably don't get enough GF business to justify stocking, and then having to discard GF buns.
Nobody understand what GF really is... They mentioned I can take any meat where that is not true as they had meat with sauce, etc For them GF is only a bread... TERRIBLE!!!
The staff is somewhat knowledgeable about gluten sensitivities. I would recommend asking them to change their gloves before making your sandwich. The gluten free bread available comes in a 6” only, and it’s pretty good! Tip: Have it extra toasted so it doesn’t fall apart as easily.
Extremely helpful. As soon as I asked for the gluten free wrap the lady asked if I was coeliac. Once stating I was she instantly changed her gloves and got someone else to serve while she got my wrap and proceeded to take it out the back to make it with all fresh ingredients and in a separate space to avoid cross contamination. The wrap was delicious, very impressed with the service :)
Never again. Not only was the staff rude and not open to questions.. When I asked if the beef had gluten they said 'just a little bit'... There is nothing there that does not get bread crumbs in it... And the chicken also contains gluten and the dressings... They need more training on food allergies... But not worth the risk, I walked out after the staff eye rolled when I asked if she would feed only a little peanut to someone that was allergic.
Good food and some locations have gluten free bread, but it's all prepared on the same surfaces with the same tools. Fine if you're doing gluten free for fun, not good for those with celiac or sensitivities.
They have the gluten free bread. Make sure you ask for the manager, he made sure gloves were changed and my sandwich was kept as separate as possible.
The guy that did my order used extreme caution making my sandwich — didn’t touch handles with his gloves, used separate bins of everything, put paper down, washed his hands — all of it. Best Subway experience I’ve had.
GF bread is available and brownies. Ask for a manager, they will change gloves. Warning the condiments come from shared area, I got mine with only mayo.
Only Subway I’ve found in our area with gf rolls. So happy I have a place to go when all I want is a sandwich like a normal person!
No gluten free wraps in stock ever. Bad service and support for celiacs.
J’ai eu un super service. J’ai eu la même employée tout le long. Je suis allée en avant-midi avant le rush du dîner, donc c’est certain que ça a aidé. Mais je recommande. Ils s’y connaissent en matière de précaution au gluten
They carry Gluten Free bread. You can check the Subway website to see that almost all subs, with the exception of the meatball and maybe 1 other can be gluten free with the gf bread. They usually ask if it is for diet or allergy. They will change gloves and take precautions. There is a $1 charge for the GF bread. Last I checked, GF bread is not offered at any Longview locations, but I have not asked in a long time. // In October 2018, they left their location and built a new building right down the street. They still carry GF bread.
How many Subways have you been in that actually offer GF bread? Its prepackaged, but the workers change gloves, wash knives, and seem to otherwise take care to not cross-contaminate. Add to that, an absolutely lovely and friendliest staff around!
The gluten free bread used is some of the worst I’ve ever had. Don’t bother with the gf brownie either.
We saw that this Subway offered GF bread and had to stop in and give it a try. As a Celiac I asked a lot of questions and gave a lot of instructions to the staff member to avoid cross contamination. The staff took extra precaution and were very accommodating. I had the staff member use 4 sheets of paper, wiped down the entire area, get my veggies from the back...and more...The bread was definitely better toasted than not. I would totally go back as I did not get cross contaminated.
They still have gluten free bread!! Located near B24. Bread was great. They do a glove change every time, even though I told them I only have a sensitivity and it wasn’t necessary, but they still did it. Then read is wrapped in plastic then microwaved. They will toast it after the meat is on
Do not the gluten free bread. Lady had no idea what I was talking about
They have GF bread, and also had a display of GF brownies. The worker stated that she had never served GF bread before. The guy in Gilmer usually opens the package and warms it up in there. That makes the bread more pliable. She just warmed this up outside of the plastic and it was a little crumbly. One time at the Gilmer location they asked me if I wanted it toasted and I said no. They didn't warm it in the plastic first, so it was completely crumbly. So some people know how to do it and some don't. It seems like it should always be warmed up inside the open plastic and if you want it toasted, that would be another round.I posted this for people traveling on Hwy 80. The last time I checked, the Big Sandy location did NOT have GF bread. Gladewater does NOT have GF bread. The last time I checked with some Longview locations they did not have GF bread. The next closest Hwy 80 location in Longview (not too far from Good Shepherd Hospital) never responded to my phone calls, so I can't tell you one way or the other.
Gluten free buns and brownies. They usually ask but if they don't let them know its an allergy and they will clean the counter, scoops, change gloves and make yours on the line by itself. Clean restaurant, drive-thru, and easy to find. I have never gotten sick here. All Redmond Locations have GF buns too!
Staff was great great about using clean knives and changing gloves. The bread was not bad at all. A bit crumby, but I've read if you double toast the sandwich it's much better. It was really fun to enjoy a sub after three years without for my daughter and 7+ for myself.
They have a 6" gluten free sub that is individually packaged. The sub is soft and airy and very good. Most toppings and extras are gluten free. I always get the rotisserie chicken. They are very careful with preparation, only one person makes your sub and they change gloves, get fresh ingredients from the back, and change paper liners. When toasting, they cover it with extra paper and use paper to open and close the toaster door. I've never had a reaction. Kaitlyn is excellent! They also have some chips that are gluten free and apple slices.
Every time we have tried a Subway, the staff informs us that they do not know why they are listed as Gluten-free and one place went so far as to mock my family by asking why we would want sandwiches if we require gluten-free. Do not go to Subway.
This Subway carries gluten free bread. They take extra care preparing the sandwich. They wipe down the surface, change gloves, use a clean knife and use extra paper to cover the common use surface. This extra care really makes a difference and we can honestly say no cross contamination! Yum Yum!
They Can make gluten free salads, But they do come in contact with bread, And they do not change gloves between what they make. Ask for them to change gloves, also not Completely safe because they don't change gloves for the vegetables. so Eat At Your Own Risk I haven't experienced any problems yet They have soup that is totally Gluten and vegan free
They offer sealed GF bread but you really can't be safe from cross contamination in a sub shop
