They don’t have a gluten free menu or any indicators on menu. I got the cauliflower crust veggie pizza and it tasted good. Seemed a little overpriced

Newk’s now serves a cauliflower crust option. They state that they do not have a dedicated gluten free kitchen space, but the few times I’ve been there and had the Cauliflower crust I’ve had no reaction. I’ve ordered the Margherita pizza each time and it was delicious.

Check their website for the full gluten free menu. We ordered through bite squad- The margarita cauliflower crust pizza was delicious. The website GF menu also shows you which salads are safe to eat/which to avoid. The Greek salad was very good! I did not feel sick after-yay!

I was pleasantly surprised at how knowledgeable the staff was and the care they took to protect me. They have cauliflower crusts and the same person who took my order prepared my food from start to finish to make sure there was no cross contamination. The food was excellent!

Gluten free menu was difficult to find but the server was able to tell me the gluten free options. The new cauliflower pizza they said is gluten free.

This location has an allergen list available to view if you ask for it - but the staff appeared baffled that anyone would ask about what was in the food. The allergen list wasn’t very clear and both the employees ( one was presumably the manager) only offered conflicting information with what was listed. I.e why all the salads ( without dressing) where labeled to have gluten and soy in them- his answer was the dressing. Plan on eating somewhere else.

Very nice and helpful. Have to stick to salad or the thai soup (if available that day) but you get a protein with the salad so it's very filling. And delicious, might I add. 🙂

I have personally never had a great experience after eating at any of Newk’s locations, including this one. Too much going on in the kitchen area to avoid cross contamination.

They would not give me a list of possible allergens list. The manager would not help the employee know what gluten-free meant. Not going to waste my time again.

This place is crap to be completely honest. Website claims gluten free menu but when we asked I received an eye roll and a REGULAR UNMARKED menu. The wait staff does not care at all. We didn't even order, just handed the menu back and left.

I got a salad, and told the cashier that I needed the salad to have a gluten allergen warning on it. She seemed to know what that was, and happily put an allergen warning on it. I watched as the salad maker put croutons on other salads WITH HIS GLOVES. And then he read my order, and started putting ingredients in— with the same, gluten-y gloves. Luckily I was able to see this happen and stop him before he made my life hell for the next 24 hours or so, but still— they have not been well educated on how to deal with allergies, treat with extreme caution!!!!

I ordered a gluten free salad with no croutons. got my salad and it had croutons in it. the staff took it back reluctantly, and brought me a correct salad. the salad wasn’t delicious, and i’m not sure i’ve had worse... also, i pulled a piece of ice out of it... not a recommendable experience.

Staff had no idea if they had gluten free options. (Including the kitchen staff) They were very friendly but I definitely did not feel safe eating there.

a decent number of options but mainly very large salads. You also will need to look up the menu online as opposed to finding it in the restaurant but it's fairly easy to navigate.

We went to this location because the gluten-free menu had some tasty looking options. I don't know (and don't want to risk finding out) if the issues with the menu were related to gluten or not. All I know is the food there made both my husband and I sick. All we had in common was possibly salad dressing base. So, either there was something gone bad in his food (he can eat gluten)and something glutinous in mine, or something wrong with the dressing. I am not willing to risk it again to find out.

I was shown a menu that was intended for staff only, and advised by a nice employee whose mom is gluten free on what is safe to eat. All in all, I had a nice lunch: salad with delicious dressing and some bean salad. I'll gladly eat there again

Note: I have food allergies to wheat, beef, and some nuts. I do not have celiac disease. They have a folder that lists what allergens are in which dishes (ask a manager). I have sent salads back that had croutons and they are always nice and apologetic. Cross contamination is an issue but they said beef and chicken are cooked separately and I did not have a reaction.

They brought my salad out with croutons even after asking for no croutons. They then brought out the wrong salad. I do not recommend.

Horrible service. Salads are the only thing gluten free. Not very friendly about being asked what they're gluten free options are.

The staff isn't willing to help you besides rolling their eyes and looking at the allergen list behind the counter. I never saw it myself and when I asked to speak to a cook about specifying ingredients, the girl at the counter ignored me. Not many choices for those with allergies. I also asked for no croutons, and that wasn't done either. Everything is iffy, but I risked the Southern Salad.
