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.

Everything on the menu is vegetarian and both gluten free & vegan options are also identified on the menu. I had the Zoodles and fries as an appetizer. I was assured that the fries are not cross-contaminated. Great for lunch!!

On GrubHub, there is a separate menu which mirrors the regular menu. So it will say, "VG Burger (GF)"... Which makes me super confident that they know which items need to be prepared GF. Also, there is a really inclusive online allergen list.

Food is amazing! I would not know it's all vegan. The nachos are great, and so is the VG burger.

I've eaten here twice, and been glutened twice - the first time I said I have a gluten allergy (I know, Celiac's not an allergy) and they confirmed that what I was ordering was gluten free but didn't make a note in my order. The second time I made sure that they added a note, and I also asked them to change gloves etc. I also heard the cashier tell the kitchen that I have an allergy, but I still was glutened. The food is good and I like that it's vegetarian but I don't think I'll eat here again.

The menu has certain items listed as gluten free, and, if you beg long enough, they will give you a list of gluten free items. Unfortunately, there are inconsistencies between the two menus, and the staff is completely uninformed about Celiac issues. Eat here at your own risk. I'll know in an hour if I made a safe choice with a burger on a gluten free bun.

They claim to be gluten free. But, I got the Beyond Burger with a gluten free bun. The top one was gluten free and the bottom was not. I didn’t realize it until after I took a big bite out of it. When I told the girl she said “oh yea. Yours must have gotten mixed up with another burger”. Ya think?! She didn’t even apologize. This little mixup also let me know they are preparing everything in the same area. So, even if the bun was correct, cross contamination is a big possibility.
