Many other sandwich chains struggle to serve people who eat gluten-free. But not Jersey Mike’s! These sub shops do an incredible job at accommodating gluten-free diets, offering gluten-free bread, changing gloves when preparing gluten-free sandwiches, and wiping down surfaces.
Even if you’re on a strict gluten-free diet, you can feel pretty confident eating at Jersey Mike’s.
So let’s check out your options!
Jersey Mike’s Gluten-Free Menu
Jersey Mike’s is one of the best places to get a gluten-free sandwich. Just remember: there’s still a risk of cross contamination, since all foods are made in a common area.
Even sandwiches made on gluten-free bread could technically contain trace amounts of gluten, but the workers usually do everything they can to eliminate risk. (You can review Jersey Mike’s allergen menu to double-check ingredients.)

Is it Safe to Eat at Jersey Mike’s if You Have Celiac Disease?
Yes, Jersey Mike’s is actually one of the safest fast food restaurants for people with Celiac disease.
As stated on the Jersey Mike’s website:
Jersey Mike’s team members wear new gloves when handling the rolls and use knives and other utensils that haven’t touched other bread products when slicing the gluten free rolls. They also prepare gluten-free subs on parchment paper to avoid contact with gluten.
The website also says they thoroughly train every team member on how to prepare gluten-free sandwiches. Clearly, they are serious about satisfying their gluten-free customers!
Does Jersey Mike’s Have Gluten-Free Bread?
Great news: YES, Jersey Mike’s has certified gluten-free sub rolls. Since 2017, they’ve partnered with Udi’s rolls to offer gluten-free Jersey Mike’s subs in regular and giant sizes.
These rolls are individually wrapped and fully baked off-site, so there is very little risk of cross-contamination with gluten-containing bread.

Which Jersey Mike’s Sandwiches Are Not Gluten-Free?
You can substitute a gluten-free roll for almost any sandwich on the Jersey Mike’s menu, but there are a few sandwiches to avoid, including:
- #15 Meatball and Cheese
- #18 Chicken Parm
Both the meatballs and chicken parm are made with gluten-containing bread crumbs, so these aren’t part of Jersey Mike’s gluten-free options.
Another quick reminder: any sandwich made with a regular sub roll is NOT gluten-free!
Sub in a Bowl
At Jersey Mike’s you can also turn any regular sandwich into a sub bowl. This is a great gluten-free option!
Gluten-Free Chip Options
Jersey Mike’s also has some gluten-free chip options. To be safe, stick to lays, cheetos and doritos.
You can see here that some of the Miss Vickies chips contain malted barley extract. Barley is a gluten-containing grain so they’re not gluten-free.

Don’t forget! You can also get a cookie for a treat! Jersey Mike’s carries Udi’s Gluten-Free Cookies! They are individually packaged to avoid any kind of cross-contamination.
Jersey Mike’s offers a gluten-free sub roll, which can be substituted for their regular subs. The sandwich maker also goes to great lengths to prepare sandwiches on clean surfaces, with separate utensils and gloves. This makes Jersey Mike’s a great fast food option for people on a gluten-free diet!
No, Jersey Mike’s gluten-free bread is still available at all locations. They introduced their gluten-free sub rolls in 2017 and currently offer them at all locations nationwide.
Jersey Mike’s gluten-free sandwiches are made with Udi’s bread. The gluten-free rolls are baked off-site and individually wrapped to reduce the risk of cross-contamination with other sub rolls.
The Bottom Line
If you have Celiac disease, gluten allergies, or prefer a gluten-free diet, Jersey Mike’s is an excellent sandwich chain option. The workers at all Jersey Mike’s locations are well-trained in preparing gluten-free foods and will go to great lengths to minimize the chances of cross-contamination with gluten.
You can order almost any Jersey Mike’s sandwich on a gluten-free roll, but should avoid #15 Meatball and Cheese and #18 Chicken Parmesan, which have breadcrumbs made from wheat flour.
Otherwise, you can order almost any delicious sub from a Jersey Mike’s local restaurant without worry!
Thank you for your blog regarding Jersey Mike’s non-gluten choices. I have a grandchild that is vegetarian and gluten free because she is allergic to multiple items. I believe I have negotiated the best options at my home, but when she is with me and we wish to go to a fast food place it is quite difficult to find a place that we feel is safe from gluten and caters to her needs for some vegetarian choices as well. Can you please tell me if you have addressed this at various other restaurants? Do you have any suggestions that will help us be able to discover what is actually available at restaurants without the worry that the location might not actually know and practice safety for gluten and other allergens?
Hi Pam! I have many other restaurant guides on my website. You can see they linked in my post – I hope they’re helpful! It’s never a for sure guarantee they’ll know how to make things safe. Places like Jersey Mike’s with company-wide protocols make it easier. You always have to ask the actual people working there though. I hope this helps!
Thank you south for this article. I now know that I can actually eat here.
I’m so glad it’s helpful! Hopefully more sandwiches are in your future!
I have never eaten at a Jersey mikes. Do they have condiments individually packaged for someone with allergies. As a celiac looking at the photo with the container of Mayo and a shared knife makes me rather nervous.
Do t get me wrong I’d love to try a new place to eat but I also don’t want to risk getting sick.
Great question! I get nervous about shared spreaders too. Luckily they use squirt bottles for the condiments if you ask for gluten-free!
