Staff checked ingredients of my smoothie and said it did not contain gluten.
Excellent for smoothies and lunch! No dedicated space but management takes precautions when told. Smoothies are SUPER yummy!!! I am gluten sensitive and have been eating at Tropical for several years with no problems.
J love their smoothies and their food is the best
Items are clearly marked with allergens - many smoothies are gluten free, if not all of them, as well as many of the protein powders available. Wraps can be made into bowls without a tortilla and they are delicious! Manager was helpful when I asked about allergens as well.
They have a dedicated allergy blender. I forgot to tell them about my allergy before they made my smoothie but they remade it for me in the GF blender no problem. They were very accommodating. However, I did have some of the original smoothie before I realized and ended up getting glutened (totally my fault and not the facility’s), so make sure you do request the allergy blender.
I ordered something that should have been gluten free, but had a reaction within minutes of starting it. They do say on their website not to order something if you actually have celiacs because the kitchen cross contaminates, so this is my bad. But just so everyone else is aware, I figured I'd give my experience.
I asked for an allergy menu and they didn't know what I was talking about. I tried to explain that I had a gluten allergy and they were all clueless. I decided not to even attempt a salad with with the fear of getting sick.
The staff member was very knowledgeable. The manager gave me all of my options for celiac and knew about cross-contamination. He offered to clean area and get a new smoothie jars out to avoid cross-contamination. Offered to make sandwiches into salads. The food was good but very small portions. My smoothie was really good.
I wanted a blueberry pineapple smoothie. They were able to change the paradise point to meet my needs. It was fruit, water and sugar. Next time I would ask for OJ instead of water and sugar. Not bad for a smoothie made away from home. Cross contamination could be an issue, I am fairly sensitive intolerant and had no problems.
