Jimmy John's sandwiches

Everyone has told me how much they love Jimmy John's but I never ventured in knowing that sandwich places and celiac usually don't mix. However, I recently saw a friend eating a lettuce wrap from JJ's and so I decided to dive in and try it myself.

I ordered the Pepe, which is a basic sandwich with mayo, tomato, lettuce, Turkey or ham. I ordered it as an "Unwich" and they made it in a long wrap style. The way they wrap it in paper makes it easy to eat and it is sooo good. I felt like I was eating a great sub, I almost forgot the bread. This is definitly worth trying and I would pay a little extra to get bacon on it. SOOOO Good!

Carlos O' Kelly's

Should anyone really eat at an Irish mexican place? Since I lived most of my life within ten miles of the Mexican border I would tell you no. However, there are few options that are assuredly safe for Celiac's in Wichita, especially Mexican so we gave it a try.
To start the Chips and Salsa are really good and if you are like me and have stomach problems, you really don't want anything spicy. Secondly, the food is pretty ok. The server at the location by town east actually had a print out of what was ok. Ashley and I had the ground beef tacos, shredded beef tacos and Chicken tacos. The gluten free chicken is bland. The ground beef has an odd tex mex taste to it, which some may find great. Um...yeah not me. However the shredded beef was good. Nice spices and totally juicy. We also added sour cream and it was nice. Hopefully I will get to try the queso dip sometimes. I was excited to see it was gluten free.

I know Chipotle is gluten free but do we know of any other mexican places in Wichita that are gluten free? I would love it if we had Rubio's. That place rocks.

Hu Hot mongolian Grill

Hey guys,
The other day Ashley and I went to Hu Hot and had a great time there. They make sure to clean the grill several times before they put the food on it. The gluten free sauces are okay but the choices are few. The pad thai noodles are great and the meat is awesome. If you get seriously ill from Gluten, there is a strong possibility of cross contamination if you are not super careful. The Wichita location may not have all that is available but they have good options. Also if you don't like those options bring a little brown sugar and gluten free soy sauce and there you have Teriyaki!

Here is the gluten free info from the website.

SAUCES: The following sauces are wheat and gluten free, so those customers sensitive to wheat or gluten CAN EAT:
• Black Thai Peanut
• Yellow Belly Curry• Kung Pao... Yow!
• Not So Sweet and Sour
