Not celiac safe. I knew this before visiting, had called the day before to ask how their gluten free items were prepared. The person on the phone said shared toaster and shared cooking surfaces. I brought a packed a lunch for my 3yo celiac and the rest of our party of 10 enjoyed our gluten food. Quite delicious, but NOT celiac safe. Restaurant seemed quite clean including tables, chairs and high chairs, so it was easy for me to wipe down surfaces for my daughter.
The food is ok and none of the offered GF bread products are celiac safe so that was disappointing. Literally everything is cooked together and touching wheat products. Stick to the eggs and cold potatoes.
There is a gluten free menu, but not a dedicated facility. I would stick to what’s on that menu. I have unfortunately eaten the French toast before. I wasn’t aware until today that it’s cross contaminated. They offer it gluten free on their main menu but the batter contains wheat and they dip regular and gluten free bread in the batter. Safe to say that wait staff isn’t knowledgeable and I would definitely speak to management/chef that it’s an allergy/celiac.
I ordered An A.C.E of B.L.T (gluten free version) and Nima tested it, it came back gluten found. I went with my family and 3 orders were messed up. The server insured me that it was gluten free and that they take precautions but obviously didn’t. They do NOT have a separate toaster for gf so I asked for the bread to not be toasted but I could tell it was as it was hard around the edges/crust, I also had a family member show me that. I would NOT recommend this restaurant.
Disappointed to discover that Wild Eggs "gluten free toast" is contaminated because they don't use a dedicated toaster. My wife had her breakfast without bread. Complained to the manager. She confirmed this situation. Said she would pass the complaint on to corporate.
I am a breakfast fanatic! So any breakfast spot I tend to migrate towards. Sadly (despite it being a chain restaurant, and having a gluten free menu) the gluten-free options in this location are not truly gluten-free. The Udi's toast is placed in the same toaster as regular bread, the kitchen sometimes mixes things up. The management gives different answers frequently in how things are prepared... I'd say its a 50/50 chance any time I walk in that I get contaminated.
Went in today for the millionth time; this was one of my favorite breakfast spots. I had a new server today so he was asking the chef and manager servers questions. He came back and told me the skillet potatoes were not GF. I showed him how they were all over the Gf menu and he went and asked again (watched him ask the manager in front of us). They told him that the only way they would be GF is if they cooked them in the shared fryer so there would be risk of CC. I didn’t even know what to say. I’m very disappointed.
Ordered a GF and DF BLT. When I opened it up they had put cheese on it and then took it off but it was melted on the bread and bacon. Then the waitress informed me that he realized he made it wrong and just took the inside on the sandwich off regular bread, peeled off the cheese, and then put it on GF bread. Pretty horrified.
So sadly disappointed! Menu looks fantastic, but reality didn’t meet expectations. Our waitress shrugged when we asked if the fries were GF. We then waited about an hour for our food (party of 4, no unusual requests or substitutions), even though we were one of about 4 tables filled at 12:30pm on a Friday. Staff never came to check in or see if we needed anything; we grabbed syrup carafes and ketchup bottles from abandoned tables. Food was mediocre...nothing horrible, but certainly nothing memorable.
They have a separate gf menu with a lot of options. Thankfully, my wife thought to ask if the gluten free toast is made in a dedicated gf toaster, because it is not. The waitress seemed to know what we were talking about and why it was important. We skipped the toast, but were still nervous about the risk for cross contamination if something very basic and easy to accommodate for celiac disease wasn’t followed. My wife has a asymptomatic celiac disease so it’s hard to know if she would have gotten sick.
Very nice atmosphere. Gluten free menu with a variety of selections. Wait staff seemed knowledgeable and attentive. GF French toast and home fries were delicious. Also had a great non-GF menu for others in my party. I’d definitely come again.
i got the gluten free strawberry pancakes and gluten free french toast and it was amazing! super quick service, super intelligent and helpful staff, an overall awesome experience! i will definitely be visiting here for breakfast again soon:)
Friendly staff and very clean place. I also have a nut and cinnamon allergy. Waiter was more than happy to find out if I could eat the GF pancakes. They brought a nice stack of pancakes! They were good but a little like chewing on foam. I would go again but get eggs and GF bread. I don’t like my eggs brown and those eggs looked beautiful!
Celiacs be where the gluten-free toast I was advised cannot be made without cross-contamination... also my plate came out with some of my son's powdered sugar from his not GF pancakes splashed onto it!!! My wife said her food was really good though... but she doesn't have a gluten issue
While on a trip to Louisville, I saw the Wild Eggs on my app. It focused on breakfast meals and so I thought I'd try it out one morning I was in Louisville. The have a fairly good GF menu, but unfortunately, I didn't see pancakes on the menu. I ordered one of the omelets (shrimp with a Creole cream sauce. It came with GF toast. The food was good. The server knew how to process and handle my meal. I believe there was an extra $1 charge for the GF toast. My Celiac presents itself as blisters/sores in the mouth, which take 48-72 hours to appear after eating contaminated food. Within that time frame I experienced no problems. I'd definitely eat here on my next trip to Louisville. Beware that it closes in mid afternoon on weekdays and about an hour later on weekends. Parking along the street is limited; but there is parking in a pay lot next to the building, which if memory serves me was $3 for Wild Eggs) good for 2 hours. There's not many alternatives for GF food in the area.
They do have a gluten free menu, but the only options are the typical eggs, potatoes, and meats meals. Gf toast is available in white and wheat, and the food was good enough. But everything lacked seasoning and for a meal like this with nothing specially GF, I would rather spend money elsewhere. Just too mediocre for the money.
Gluten free menu is excellent. Plenty of options. Price is right. Do wish there french toast or pancakes where also dairy free but I know those are to come by. Highly recommend. Celiacs beware!!! Kitchen is not dedicated but we had no problem
Had two amazing experiences here! They had a gluten free menu and the servers totally understood what I needed...confirming they even had a separate toaster for their gluten free bread. I had the Surfer Girl one morning and the Jimmy the Greek another morning. Great portions. Never felt sick. Would do back again.
The service and food were fantastic! I ordered the nachos & French toast. Our server was very knowledgeable and the manager even came out. Unfortunately, I am a very sensitive celiac and still got sick (obviously that’s the risk when eating out). I’d give a second if I’m in Lexington again- but stick to something naturally GF.
