Updated February 2023! 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, and after years of nagging. It’s gotten a bit more detailed, but it is still filled with errors and the dairy-free options look bleak. But don’t worry, Schlotzsky’s does offer salads, 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
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 made without gluten, unless otherwise noted. 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 (limited availability)
Heads Up! The Timberline Chili at Schlotzsky’s might still be dairy-free if ordered without cheese on top. Check in store if it is offered – it’s a rotating option with limited availability.

Heads Up! They list several salads as being milk-free on their allergen chart, but they are made with cheese! We’ve also 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.

Where to Find Schlotzsky’s
There are over 300 Schlotzsky’s locations, with the majority found in the Southern U.S. See the website below for addresses and hours.
I don’t get why I can’t an ingredient list or anything for them, and there’s zero info if the flatbread ‘crust’ is dairy free (in my case, needs to be vegan)
It’s very frustrating, but I’ve had very little luck in getting more info from Schlotzky’s. They’ve told me to ask in store, but I don’t have one near me to update this for y’all.
I was in store over the weekend and they could not tell me if the Udi’s bun was vegan…Nor the flatbread crust. 🙁
Udi’s plain buns and crust are dairy free (the one’s sold retail), but almost of all of their products contain egg. So I wouldn’t expect them to be vegan.
