They say “gluten friendly” rather than “gluten free” because there is a high chance of cross-contamination at this buffet. Salads are the main thing they serve, along with soups and baked goods. Most of the time, they have one gluten free baked good. The coconut muffins and cinnamon muffins are delicious. No gluten free options for pastas. The chili is safe, and they often have one other gluten free soup. Not the best option for celiacs, but still pretty good. I recommend getting food right as it is set out, so it is the least contaminated it can be.
the ranch had pasta floating in it! ugh
This is a mixed review. Where I go the severs will make a salad plate from closed food containers stored under the salad bar. They change gloves too. Some gf soup, chili, but workers repeatedly stir soups with a spatula, wipe it off, and then stir the next soup with the same spatula. After bringing this to the manager's attention again and again, the workers now take the soup to the back, and bring them back out stirred. Also, gluten free options, once listed online monthly, are listed too late (often half way through the month).
Unfortunately, they have a lot of gluten friendly options. However, I have been sick here several times. Specially on the muffins & soup. The salad bar surprisingly has been fine for me to eat at with no cross contamination. If you cant eat the muffins...is there a point in paying 12-15 dollars for a salad and drink? I don’t think so. If you’re GF by choice and cross contamination doesn’t effect you 10/10 recommend. I dream about the muffins sometimes. 🤤
Gluten free labeling but this is vegetarian fare only! I found quinoa and eggs and beans and cottage cheese as protein sources. There was a tiny and I mean tiny bit of chicken in one type of pre made salad. The salad bar was great though. I think there was a bit of meat in some of the soups. Not enough to really balance your blood sugar long.
