Updated March 2022! Schlotzsky’s is a fast food sandwich shop with hundreds of locations worldwide. However, most of their restaurants are located in the Southern U.S. In terms of sandwich shops, they struggle to be transparent. They finally brought their allergen “scorecard” back, but they do not offer ingredient information and have cryptic customer service. Nevertheless, Schlotzsky’s does offer dairy-free wraps and dairy-free gluten-free sandwiches with a range of filling options.
Schlotzsky’s Dairy-Free Menu Guide with Gluten-Free Options
After some persistence, we were able to get more details on dairy-free custom order options at Schlotzsky’s. This menu guide includes dairy-free menu options first, followed by custom order components. Be aware of special order requirements in parentheses () next to the menu items, and see the Heads Up notes to help fill in the blanks.
Other Allergen & Dietary Notes: All of the following menu items are also gluten-free, as listed. Schlotzsky’s regular breads contain milk, so you must order gluten-free for dairy-free options, or you can order a wrap, if available.
- Garden Vegetable
Heads Up! The Timberline Chili at Schlotzsky’s might still be dairy-free if ordered without cheese on top. We’re trying to confirm.
- Garden Salad (no croutons, sub dairy-free dressing)
Heads Up! They list the garden salad as milk-free on their allergen chart, but we have been told by Schlotzsky’s staff that the croutons contain milk. Use caution when ordering. Other salads can be ordered without dairy, but they require a little more customization. You must order them with no croutons, no breadstick (or sub Udi’s gluten-free breadstick), dairy-free dressing, and in some cases, another salad component must also be omitted.
