Typically when it comes to restaurants that serve sub sandwiches, it is usually best to stay away from these types of stores all together as cross-contamination is such a huge concern. However, after reading a few different testimonials on message boards from people who have successfully eaten a gluten free meal at a Jimmy John’s restaurant, I decided to look a little more into when foods they offer that are gluten free.
A quick browse of their official website does not show any gluten free menu, so I decided to contact them and see what they had to say. Here is the list they sent me:
Confirmed Gluten Free Foods
Interestingly enough, they also went out of their way to point out that their cheese is NOT gluten free (this is one of the few products Celiacs can usually rely on to be gluten free at restaurants).
Of course, there are still concerns over cross-contamination, so if you decide to give Jimmy Johns a try, make sure to verify they use new gloves and take other precautions to avoid cross-contamination.
