Not Your Average Joe’s


David Crowley of Cooking Chat recommended an up and comer chain, Not Your Average Joe’s:

One of our favorite regional chains, for food allergy friendliness, is Not Your Average Joe’s. They take a lot of care to get the order straight and work with you to come up with something that can be enjoyed safely. They are mostly in MA with a few restaurants in VA, MD, I believe.

Not Your Average Joe’s is a growing casual American-style chain – at last check, they had also hit New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. See their website, below, for locations, phone numbers and their menu.

This accommodating string of restaurants also offers online ordering and provides a satisfying gluten-free menu, too. Though we couldn’t find an allergy menu, many readers have told us that they’ve had no problem with finding dairy-free options at Not Your Average Joe’s.
