First I will say that their menu looks incredible and the customer service is what really puts this over the top!

As s celiac sufferer, eating out is a huge challenge for me. While the menu has several gluten friendly options, the preparation stations and methods are likely questionable for someone with celiac‘s.

The Manager on duty Laura S. and Jade were both incredibly helpful in determining this fact and even Laura S. Said, “Your health is WAYYY more important than our sales for the evening!”

Just Epic!

So While an individual with Celiac’s would be best to eat elsewhere, I recommend this establishment for all others! Especially if Laura and Jade are working! They were so devoted to analyzing my concerns and really provided a level of service that seems to be lost elsewhere!

Have visited twice. Great, friendly people work here. First time I went for dinner I explained my severe intolerance to gluten, and the manager was very patient, understood the Celiac and cross contam thing, and we were given red carpet treatment. Got the Baja Salad with tempeh and it was DELISH. Second time in for dinner, I explained I'm very sensitive to cross contamination, any gluten, and asked if they could make our food separately so we wouldn't get any flour/wheat in our food. "No problem." When I get the "we've got this" attitude, I know I'm in trouble. But, I trusted. And again got the Baja Salad with tempeh. So did my gluten free daughter. Well, much NOT to my surprise, I got a stomach ache about two hours later, and so did my daughter. The low grade kind that doesn't go away until you go to sleep. The nervous "butterflies in your stomach" feeling. I know this was a cross contamination stomach ache, because I did not have an immediate GI reaction. But the low grade achy feeling in my stomach that night made me really regret eating there this time. The salad was good (not great) but the tempeh is delicious. And the GF Mac n Cheese side dish is awesome. But, as I certainly know, it's really not GF if the kitchen isn't going to keep it away from other non-GF food.

Amazing!!!!!! I'm gluten free and dairy free and this place had so many options it's crazy. Everything is vegan but doesn't taste vegan. It's far from my housing but I go all the time just because it was so welcoming

This place was good! Not too many Gluten-free options, but what they did have was great. Unfortunately, the vegan meat that they use has a wheat binder so I couldn't eat any of the "meat" dishes.

I had the VG Classic, which comes with a beyond burger patty. The bun was drier than a school cafeteria grilled cheese. 2/10 burger

The menu is marked with gluten free options. The food is all vegetarian.

Dessert is limited. Fries are good, but not a dedicated frier.
