Aware of celiac food preparation. Never had a problem, they change gloves and make unwich on separate paper surface.

Any sandwich can come in a lettuce wrap. Roast beef and cheese have gluten. Go with something like Club Lulu. Pickles and chips are good too

Their lettuce wraps are made in the same spot that the normal sandwiches are made. It's all cross contaminated.

If you tell them you have Celiac Disease they automatically change their gloves. They do have a lot of bread so it is obviously not safe.

They have an unwhich. Which is a lettuce wrap. They’re always super tasty. However I believe non of their cheeses are GF. So I always just get whatever with no cheese. They lay down paper for each sandwich. And each topping is in deprecate containers so cross contamination is minimal if any.

Edit: personally too worried about cross contamination to eat at Jimmy Johns anymore Fantastic. The unwhich is a lettuce wrap of whatever you want. I love the Hunter's, which is roast beef and cheese. They are well trained for allergies at this location. They put on new gloves. They put down fresh paper and make the unwhich on the paper. They give mayonnaise packets instead of using the shared spatula. There is always the possibility of cross contamination, but I have never gotten sick here unlike other sandwich places. Beware the tuna salad, it has Gluten but not from the mayonnaise, lol. Jimmy John's has become our go to for bringing home a quick meal.

Has a lettuce wrap instead of bread. The cheese has low amounts of gluten so go dairy free too ;). Something quick and fresh to eat.

I've gotten sick here in spite of being clear about having severe celiac disease. They dip into the same mayo and mustard that has been glutened by their bread & rolls , etc when making your supposed GF lettuce wrap. Not Celiac safe. Also, the owner slaughters endangered animals in Africa. Google it.

Love their unwich (lettuce wrap) - they also wrap it up nicely so you can simply peel back the paper as you eat to avoid mess. Great way to satisfy my sub craving! They also have a GF chip option

This was a nice stop for lunch. I had one of their unwiches (lettuce wrap) and it was quite tasty. The manager understood gluten-free issues and he directed the food preparers to wash their hands, change their gloves, wash the preparation area, AND put a piece of fresh paper down on the prep line before fixing my sandwich!

The Unwiches are awesome, just ask for no cheese. Almost everything they serve is gluten free except for the cheese. Very good alternative to regular fast food

They have lettuce wrapped sandwiches and probably the best ones at wrapping them!

The Unwich (lettuce wrap) is the only gluten free item on the menu (also chips and pickle and fillings). I got a BLT on lettuce wrap. It was good, I felt a little weird after it, but it was also my first time eating fast food so that may be it. I have a very serious reaction to gluten so I think it is pretty safe because I didn’t have serious/that many side effects.

You can get an unwich (lettuce wrap) and when you order tell them you are celiac and need gluten free, they will wash their hands and change their gloves. I eat here all the time and am celiac with no issues.

No problem ordering gluten free. The ‘unwich’ (lettuce wrap) was delicious.

Have a gluten free menu on their website. Lots of lettuce wrap options, the pickles, and most of the chips are gluten free! :)

A great alternative for a quick meal. Your choice of sandwiches on lettuce. Order the “unwich”

Multiple staff members had obvious negative non verbal reactions when I asked about ingredients. They could not find anything listing allergens, ingredients, or nutrition. No accommodation or apologetic tone.

They have a dedicated place where they will prepare lettuce wraps. The staff is very knowledgeable and does a good job preventing cross contamination.

Love JJ’s!! The unwiches are great and refreshing. Wish they had a gf bun option too, but the unwiches are honestly delicious. I always get the Beach Club (#12)

Staff were happy to change their gloves to make my unwich (lettuce wrap), and even spoke up to include mayo packets instead of cross contaminating with their spatula/jar of mayo. For you celiacs who are in a jam, and need something quick, do your research beforehand (see link below), and advocate for yourself when you order! Things containing gluten at Jimmy John’s: -bread & cookies -cheese (contains barley wheat) -tuna -salt and vinegar chips -bbq chips Allergen list: https://www.jimmyjohns.com/downloadable-files/AllergenInformation.pdf

Went for a lettuce wrap. Explained that I had Celiac and asked if they would mind changing gloves. They told me that they would not. Also said they would not make my wrap over fresh paper. Said they were specifically instructed NOT TO for people with gluten issues. I emailed the manager, and sure enough, that is their policy. If you tell them you have a gluten allergy/Celiac, they will NOT make any accommodations. No clean gloves, no fresh paper. I don't understand it, but obviously will not be back.

Must get the "unwich" lettuce wrap. Allergy knowledgeable and good about cross-contamination. Recommended!

I live that you can get your sandwich done unwhich (wrapped in lettuce) so I can eat it. I can’t eat egg and all the gluten free bread seems to have it.

The staff is knowledgeable about gluten free and make lettuce wraps called unwich. They change their gloves and wash. Great sandwich alternative.

They have the Unwich option instead of bread, which is of course low-carb, so I load up on veggies, avocado, and more meat. Make sure they change gloves; sandwich maker didn't hear the cashier repeat that back to me, but my husband requested, and they prepared it in a different area. No reaction, but I'm not Celiac.

They have lettuce wraps and are very careful with cc. They change their gloves and prepare at separate station. Make sure you ask for mayo packets instead of them using the common container.

I eat here all the time!! Obviously don't order the bread but I eat the unwhich (lettuce wrap) like 3 times a week and it's almost better than a regular sandwich!

I’ve had their lettuce wraps but have gotten sick once. You must ask them to change their gloves and tell them it’s an allergy. Watch out for cross contamination. They don’t have a dedicated GF area.

Unwich, lettuce wrapped version of any sandwich. Check their website, most ingredients gf, tuna and surprisingly cheese not.

No gluten free options besides subbing bread for lettuce at the same price.

Ask them to change gloves, put down fresh paper along the counter as they prepare an Unwich -- lettuce wrap. Also, ask for mayo and mustard in the individually wrapped package. We usually have good success when we give these directions for our food preparation.

They do not have GF options, only lettuce wraps. I would not recommend this place for that reason.

You have to order as an unwich which is in a lettuce wrap, and specify that you need it to be gluten free. They will give you mayo packets instead of spreading it for you to eliminate cross contamination. Unfortunately last night I was glutened. Not sure if it was cross contamination from the counter or they didn't change gloves or what.

High risk of cross contamination they don't change gloves after touching bread and drag the lettuce leaf across the prep area adding the fillings as they build your unwich.

Order Unwich- Tell them you have a gluten allergy they should clean work space and change gloves i usually watch to be sure not cross contamination occurs

Ask for your sandwich to be made unwhich style. Tuna is not gf. It is made with soy sauce.

I love having this fast food option! Jimmy Johns has a spectacular unwich where I can enjoy my favorite veggies and meat wrapped in lettuce!

Unwich option great for quick lunch. I read the Beef is not GF. Also the cheese is questionable if you are extremely sensitive do not risk it. Should be fine with other meats. Chips are all GF. As with most places like this cross contamination is very possible beware.

Order a gluten free unwich with mayo and mustard packets on the side (the mayo and mustard is cross-contaminated) I've eaten here a couple of times with no issues! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly

Celiac

Make sure you state you have a gluten allergy - they will change their gloves for you. but apparently you also need to clarify that you want mayo and mustard packets on the side (so they don't cross-contaminate with the mayo and mustard buckets that the spatulas are constantly dipped into and wiped on bread) As long as you clarify all that, I've eaten here a couple of times with no issues

This is not really a safe place. Unwiches are still prepared on crumb covered cutting board area. Way too much cross contamination here. Update! I revisited Jimmy Johns to give it another try. When you tell them you need an Unwich because of gluten intolerance they will all do a glove change, make your Unwich on paper- not on the cutting board. Great job! Happy to eat here again.
