I went to LuLu’s for the first time after reading online about their gluten free menu options and the procedures they take to avoid cross contamination. My dad and I went in between lunch and dinner time so it was not very busy. They had their gluten free menu, but when they had a manager come back from the back to speak to me she began to explain that all the beans were gluten free and that she would have me just get the red rice since she wasn’t here when the other rice was being made. Also warning they do add BUTTER to their brown rice so it is not dairy free! This was quite surprising for me since I have never come across this situation before. After working with her to figure out what I should order I got the burrito bowl with red rice, black beans, and grilled chicken breast. She told me it would take a few extra minutes for my order so they could make sure proper precaution was taken. I was completely okay with that and am use to it.
What I like about the inside of this place it that it is clean and even the bathroom was kept up nicely! They also have a salsa bar which I love! I hate when you have to pay extra for each little salsa. Our food came out and I was impressed it was quite tasty and the salsas were all good. My dad got a free horchata with our yelp check in and a bean, rice, and cheese burrito. He loved how much cheese you got. He gets this a lot and was impressed by the ratio of cheese to beans and rice. He thought the horchata was super sweet and rich not something he usually gets. Overall we enjoyed our food, I just wish the front staff was more aware of the gluten free menu and the dairy free options.
