Lots of cross contamination.
Got a cross contaminated salad.
The food is great. I have eaten there safely at dinner time several times. Lunch seems to be a problem. The evening manager and staff understand and respect my allergy, but the lunch time staff do not. I think lunch is a very busy time and they simply can't take the necessary precautions to prevent cross contamination.
I have tried to eat here many many times, and really wanted to make it work. I even tried to go right at open, get really safe foods, etc. but if you are Celiac or very sensitive to wheat/gluten, I definitely wouldn't recommend this place. I've reacted terribly every time unfortunately, and I just don't think the employees know enough or have enough instruction on this to avoid it, not necessarily their fault.
Taziki’s used to promote itself as a gluten-free friendly chain, however the Mobile location is not. They do not have a GF menu. I ordered a Greek salad with no pita, which was printed on my receipt. Of course, my salad came out with several pieces of pita wedges inside. I sent it back, but no longer trusted the kitchen. Not celiac safe. Too bad.
This particular location of tazikis does a great job keeping me gluten free. I always get the shrimp feast with basmati rice and a salad. I beg them not to put the piece of pita on my plate and so far they have remembered. The kids feasts are also gluten free. My whole family enjoys this restaurant.
The staff seemed unsure of what was gluten free, which surprised me. I ordered a gluten free Greek salad with chicken and it was served to me with pita tucked underneath. Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was there until I'd eaten half of the salad. When I asked for a new one they apologized and made a new one, which was great, but I'm disappointed they weren't more careful.
Chicken Mediterranean salad was very delicious! Dohlmas were also very good. Staff extremely helpful. Met the Marketing Director as we walked in. After having lengthy conversation with her, encouraged them to look into GF pita bread & told her about this app. She said about 90% of their menu is GF or can be made GF.
I have celiac and have had great luck. I live a mile away so I eat there a good bit. They don't have gluten free bread but they have whole meals that are inexpensive that don't require bread. I'm My favorite is the beef tenderloin feast just order it without the pita.
Boo! Requested no bread on my Greek salad. When I got home 30 minutes later opened the box to see a piece of pita bread laid on top of the salad. When I called the manager she said they "take care" of all allergies including tomatoes?! I will not be back! So disappointing!
The food is delicious but the past 2 times I have eaten here, I have been served food that is unsafe. Even though I told the cashier my allergies and practically begged her to help me eat safely. Last time there was a huge piece of pasta in my son's fruit bowl and today there were pieces of cheese in my fruit bowl (we also have issues with dairy).
Must be clear about allergy. Great menu
EXCELLENT food and equally excellent customer service. I've eaten here several times without any problems, and the staff know what they're doing. One time I ordered take-out and asked for the salmon to be gluten-free. I asked the person who rang up my order if they got the gluten-free part - he checked and there were pita chips in it. You'd think I'd take stars off for this, but the wonderful thing is that instead of just removing the pita chips like some other places would, he had the order completely remade. I have had absolutely zero problems here and highly recommend it.
They work with you and staff will check for things if they don't know the answer. The first time I went in I got pita on top of my slaked and the manager had the food remade upon my explanation of came celiacs. You do have to watch them putting pita triangles on top of every meal but they will remake food of it comes that way. The food is delicious and delivered to the table hot and fresh! I've only been twice but it is quickly becoming a favorite!
Helpful, aware staff. Tell them you are celiac and they will inform cooks, make sure gloves are changed, etc. All items, marinades are gluten free except for skordalia sauce, pasta, desserts, and bread. Can sub lettuce wrap for pita in gyros. Free parking in garage, will validate. Lemon chicken soup...mmmm.
Manager was very knowledgable about gluten free needs. Some of the staff could be more knowledgeable about ingredients. Staff changed their gloves to prepare my food. The entire menu is gluten free with the exception of the breads, desserts, and skordalia sauce. I enjoyed the lemon chicken rice soup and a lamb gyro without the pita. They also have dairy free food options. The food is made in a common area.
Great gf chicken platter with rice and salad.
