:D Just got back from my first visit to Noodles. I had seen a carryout menu from a co-worker and it said to tell a manager if you have food allergies. I figured it was worth a visit. Well I asked for the manager and told her I was a Celiac and she whipped out a big graph with all the common allergens written across the top and their menu items listed down the side. If the box under your allergen was grey it meant it carried that contaminent. If the box was yellow, it was safe for you to eat! And, she said she would be happy to substitute any regular noodle with rice noodles cooked in their own fresh water. I got Bangkok Curry with chicken. Yum! I actually ate out without having to order a salad! I was thrilled. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all restaurants did this?

Noodles has locations in Vienna, Alexandria, Fairfax and Pentagon Row. Enjoy!

OHMYGOSH----I thought I would never be able to eat at Noodles again, and it was one of my favorite new places to eat. Thanks for the information. To know they have rice noodles, cooked in fresh water is so great. I really didn't mind them at all when I tried them for the first time recently. Isn't it great to know there are restaurants that are beginning to be in tune with our eating style? Barbara

Is the full name of this place called Nothing But Noodles?

I looked that up on Google, but, the online menu has no mention of

gluten-free menu items.

Thanks!

The name is Noodles and Company. When you go there you tell them you have a food allergy and they bring out a chart that lists the major allergens across the top and their menu items down the side. You go to the last column, wheat and gluten and go down and anything having a yellow square you can eat. Don't get too excited. There is only Bombay curry, Pad Thai and Chicken Rustica and the salad dressings that have a yellow box. Mind you, the salads are all off limits. The first time I had the Bombay Curry and it was great. The second time I had the Chicken Rustica and it was salty and I got sick. Two different managers, one that went back and supervised my meal, and another that brushed me off with, "you'll be fine, and I checked on your meal and it looks great". Remember to insist on a fresh pot to cook your noodles in. A lady I know has found wheat noodles in her rice noodles on two occasions. ( She had order a meal made with wheat noodles but asked them to substitute rice noodles). I think it's safer to order something where absolutely no substitutions need to be made, so they can't "slip up". I will try again and be much bossier next time. ( actually I tried to be bossy but I just wasn't bossy enough). I kept saying, aren't you going back there? You need to make sure my meal is cooked on a clean pan, etc. but, oh well, live and learn!

Hi!

I never even thought that was a place I would be able to eat at. I never even thought about checking. There are about 14 locations in the Chicago area too. Thanks for the information!

Thanks for posting this :D My husband and I and our 3 kids are all gluten free. We tried noodles & co twice now, it was really good and none of us had any problems :D:D I was insistant that we talk to the managers both times (2 different restaurants) and that they personally prepared our meals in a fresh pot with fresh water. We had them put plain grilled chicken, olive oil and fresh parmesan cheese on our pasta. Both managers didn't really 'get it' until I explained more about celiac and just how important the fresh pot and fresh water was.

Noodles & co's national headquarters is a few minutes from my house so I am going to go there tommorrow and explain the importance of fresh water etc.. and thank them for having gluten free foods !!! It has been really nice for us to be able to eat at another restaurant that the kids love.

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
