Made Without Gluten-Containing Ingredients

Due to our open kitchens that handle gluten, we cannot guarantee that items made without gluten-containing ingredients are "gluten-free", as defined by the FDA. We make every effort to avoid gluten cross-contact; however there is always the potential for cross-contact with other gluten-containing food items, particularly in our self-serve facilities. We encourage guests to speak to the chef or manager regarding any questions about ingredients.
