    I get sick everytime. :( I'm not sure why. Possible CC or maybe too much grease.

    I'm not Celiac just gluten sensitive, but I appreciate this site so much to help me decide on safe places to eat! I got the turkey sandwich with gf bread and the tomato soup, it was delicious!! I also had gf beer which wasn't bad but the label does say possibly contains gluten, so beware if that's a biggie for you.

    The sandwiches are fantastic! Unfortunately you can't have the fries (if celiac, due to fryer cross-contamination). I had the turkey, added an egg... the best sandwich I've experienced in a long time. They also have a vegan cheese option.

    I'm in OKC to visit my sister, and I have Celiac. This place is excellent! Celiac friendly! They have a separate toaster for gluten free bread! My husband got the portacaloosa and I got the fancy pants both gluten free bread and we both had half of both. Sooooo good! I didn't get sick! Loved it! Highly recommend!

    Totally agree with Lisa on this if you are gluten free because of a allergy or celiac do not take the chance. The food was really good, but I am so sick now. Do not eat here if you have celiac! My waitress was very nice and knew what I was talking about, but she wasn't the one cooking.

    I have Celiac disease, visiting OKC for a competition and a friend brought me here! the server knew what was up and alerted the kitchen staff to my situation. I got the Caprese sandwich and the tomato soup. Both were delicious. I ate it just a bit ago, but I haven't had a reaction yet and I am fairly sensitive. the only thing about it was that the bread was toasted and I didn't know under what circumstances it was. Make sure you ask!

    Very unique sandwiches, with AMAZING GLUTEN FREE BREAD!!!! They also have great sides, and will inform you if something you picked has gluten in it so you can pick something else. They are super accommodating and just have the freshest ingredients! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I would eat here every day if I could :)

    My waitress was very sweet and knowledgeable. She told me that she would put a special note saying it was an allergy and the house made tomato soup is gluten free as well. Cider options available too

    The menu is mostly sandwiches but they offer GF bread that is tasty. They also have hard cider if you're looking for a GF adult beverage. The wait staff is knowledgable about GF and it is mentioned on the menu.

    If you are eating GF to be trendy or to lose weight I would give The Mule a higher rating. If you have to eat GF due to Celiac Disease and/or get very sick from eating gluten then steer clear. The kitchen is very small and being a a sandwich place that offers GF bread leaves CC a huge issue. After asking the extremely rude waitress who had no knowledge of any items on the menu or any of the cooking conditions I spoke with a manager. He did indicate that they could cook her sandwich on top of foil but was honest enough to say that CC is a strong risk in their kitchen. Not wanting my daughter to have a reaction we ordered her a salad. If you are sensitive to gluten or have CD find someplace else to eat. . .this isn't for you. I honestly can't say enough about how horrible our waitress was either. My husband and I thought we were in the midst of being punked . . .it was crazy.

    This is a great place to go with a group of people who don't have diet restrictions. You seriously can't go wrong with any sandwich here (although a few have gravy and other no nos, so read the descriptions before you order). My favorite sandwich is the Fancy Pants. I've never had a problem eating here. The only drawback is that the GF bread they offer is the typical smaller white bread and it's $2 extra. I gladly pay it though because it's worth it to be able to eat delicious sandwiches like everyone else.

    Great sandwich shop, with plenty of Choices and (my personal fav) cider on draft! Yuppy meets hippy... Loved it :)

    A trendy new age little cafe where you can find a menu filled with select and choice options that's will exceed your expectations. Gluten free bread was soft and lightly toasted, making any sandwich selection a good decision.
