They have a nice selection of vegetables and protien. We were able to create our own salads and avoid gluten and dairy products. They do not offer gluten free bread.

They assured me all salads were gluten free. After I got sick I looked up the salad I had and sure enough the dressing and meat marinade had gluten. Not going back

Granted I visited when it wasn't busy, but the workers took extreme care. Instead of taking ingredients out of the normal containers, the worker went into the back and used entirely new batches of the different ingredients. Most of their dressings are GF!

I have celiac disease. They use a clean bowl everytume they make a salad, and the person making my salad washed her hands without me even asking. You can look on their website on their allergy menu and choose no gluten and it will tell you what you can eat. I had the Pomona salad and it was really tasty. I had no issues at all.

Delicious! Rated no on celiac friendly because of shared kitchen. I've only ordered salads so far but I am celiac and haven't had any issues.

This place is AMAZING! Lots of made from scratch gf dressings. Citrus chicken is to die for. I have celiac with a very high allergy & have NOT gotten sick from any MADGreens locations on the east side. I eat here a couple times a week!

Gluten info was clearly posted. The staff was knowledgeable about what was gluten free, even when it was not posted.

My visit was in March 2016 -- the employee I worked with seemed well-trained in cross-contamination issues, and the salad I had was simple but tasty and safe.

Great salads with plenty of options. Dressings are clearly labeled . (Would suggest the red pepper one) In regards to the previous review, there aren't very many gluten ingredients to have cross contamination. Obviously it's possible, but unless you are hyper sensitive, you should be fine. (Do any restaurants really "guarantee" you won't have issues?) My sister and I (both celiacs) had no problems.

I had trusted Mad Greens in the past. Yesterday I was told by the Mad Greens employee at different location that there is no chance of me eating there without getting sick. "We make no guarantees regarding gluten because there are no controls in our food prep. We use the same cutting boards and knives to cut bread and vegetables without washing in between. Even if that cutting board was washed, we work side-by-side with gluten containing ingredients. All vegetables have probably been exposed to gluten, even those in the bins that have not been put on the line yet. It would be safer if you don't eat here." So, I walked out. I do not understand how anything can say gluten free if there are no controls. That employee scared me out of the restaurant. I called corporate and they have not returned my call.

Very over priced and unfriendly toward questions. Just trying to order is a nightmare, even though the menu is labeled. They look at you like you are crazy for even asking how to order gluten free. Great concept, but too much risk of cross contamination for this Celiac.

Use caution - it's one of those chains that labels a lot of the protein and dressing options as GF when they still aren't safe for celiacs. Staff is transitory, so don't expect them to know what gluten is, you'll get questionable answers, e.g. ask how the chicken is prepared instead. I also worry about cross contamination from the toppings set up. The dressing chart is handy as it shows lots of allergy aware info.

I asked if their gluten free items were safe for someone with a gluten allergy and he said he didn't know, but probably wouldn't risk it. I ended up getting a make your own salad anyway. They use clean utensils and a clean bowl. it was alright, but i ate very simply, since i was worried about cross contamination.

Very disappointing. Although they do give you gluten free options it is very overpriced and small portions of salads. I ordered a pre-made PBJ for my son that was actually rotten! Better off going to Spoons just a block away!!!
