Food Allergies


All sandwiches and entrees should be ordered without buns or flatbread. Also, all breaded fried items and our grilled pizzas inherently contain flour. If you have any further questions or concerns feel free to speak to any manager.

The 4B Burger has a breaded onion ring.
All dressings are gluten free.
All fries except chili cheese fries are gluten free. Be sure to let the cashier know that you have a gluten intolerance so that the fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer.
From the Smoker
Our ribs and pork are free of gluten.
Farm Favorites
Avoid the grilled cheese and peanut butter banana split sandwiches and hot dogs.

Order all desserts and shakes without malt powder.
Breakfast Tacos and Huevos De Farm Grill are served with gluten free corn tortillas. The pancakes, waffles, and fritters all contain gluten and request no flatbread with scrambles and omelets.
Kid’s Menu
All items contain gluten. Ask a manager for a custom alternative idea.

Lactose (Dairy)

Milk, cheese, and other dairy products are prevalent in our recipes. We have plenty of options for you to enjoy, but some form of dairy can be found in all of our breaded fried items, our buns, and all of our dessert options.

Order all sandwiches without a bun or cheese. Order the 4B Burger without an onion ring and order the Fontina Burger and Pesto Chicken without pesto. Order all flatbread without garlic sauce, because it contains Pecorino Romano cheese.
Salads and Sides
Consider one of our vinaigrettes with your salad. Inquire about the vegetable of the day and you can order the Beet salad with no Bleu cheese.
Our French fries and Sweet Potato fries are lactose-free. Ask for no sour cream on the Chill-Cheese and Baked Potato fries and avoid the Garlic fries.

All can be made and enjoyed without cheese
Everything is lactose free except for the garlic flatbread and Chicken Tenders on the BBQ Sampler. Ask for grilled chicken instead.
Kid’s Menu
All contain dairy. Ask for a custom alternative idea.
Avoid all Pancakes, Waffles, and Fritters. Always request to speak to a manager who will personally oversee the preparation of your meal.


Nuts and Nut Products are stored and used in all food preparation and service areas. We reserve the right to not serve those who indicate they have a severe or life-threatening food allergy

Our pesto is made with pecans therefore when ordering the Fontina Burger, Pesto Chicken Sandwich, Green Eggs and Ham Scramble, or Caesar Salad ask for it without pesto.

None of our salad dressings or marinades contain nut products, however, be sure to order Thai and Beet salads without nuts. Also, order dessert items without pecans.


Please have the cashier advise a manager about your need to eat soy free and ask about substitution options for coleslaw, mayo based salad dressings and batters. All buns and breads should be ordered with “no butter” or “not toasted” to avoid soy on the griddle.

The Farm Burger and Farm Chicken are soy free and are uncommonly great.
Fries & Rings
We use 100% Canola frying oil. Our French fries and Sweet Potato fries are soy free, but the chili-cheese fries are not. All of the breaded items, including the Chicken Tenders, are made with soy-derived products.
Our pizza dough does contain soy.
Farm Favorites
Most of the farm favorite items contain soy. The Ahi Tuna and Portobello Mushroom sandwiches should be ordered without Wasabi mayo or Green Goddess dressing.

All of our dessert options contain soy.
Kid’s Menu
All contain soy. Ask for a custom alternative idea.
Request that all egg dishes be made without non-stick pan spray or butter substitute. For a great soy free meal order the Huevos de Farm Grill or Breakfast Tacos with steamed corn tortillas. Also try the Vegetable or Meat & Potato Scrambles without skillet potatoes.

    Do you have any options for those with egg allergies?

    I agree on the original post – I would love to know about foods for egg allergies. My daughter is allergic and I’d be interested to know if the pizza has egg ingredients. Thanks!

    BTW – Other than missing the egg section, your allergy page is great! 🙂

    This is one of the best allergy pages I’ve seen — focuses on what to order and keeps it simple. Unfortunately, I agree with the others, I need to see egg too.

    My son is also allergic to eggs. An egg allergy section would be great otherwise a great job with this section. Thanks

    Is your beef grass fed , hormone and antibiotic free . I have inflammatory issues so I don’t eat beef much and also what type of oil do you fry with canola or just vegetable oil. I love sweet potato fries. We would love to drive out to see you guys. We’re coming from NE Phoenix Thank you

    My son and I are intolerant to wheat, dairy, corn, soy, and nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, sweet and spicy peppers, paprika, tobasco sauce…). I was wondering if there is anything on your menu that would accommodate us and make a full meal that a 4 year old would eat. Thank you.

    Under your nut allergy section it says that none of the dressings or marinades contain nut products. On diners, drive inns, and dives, in the making of the Asian slaw for the ahi tuni burger, the last ingredient he says that is added to the dressing is peanut oil and white wine vinegar. Is that the case? Because if so I won’t be able to eat it because I have a peanut allergy. Could you let me know, because I really want to try the ahi tuna sandwich.

  • Is your beef grass fed?
    What is your pork fed?

    I was wondering/recommending if on menu items that are ALL organic, they be posted. My girlfriend and I, only eat organic, and we would love to enjoy the items that are all organic. Love Joe’s!

  • Vinessa

    It would be extremely helpful if you could post nutrition facts of your menu items as well. Thanks.

    April 28th, 2012 at 3:02 pm
  • Val

    i agree with vinessa… a nutritional menu or healthy eats with and * would be wonderful. My husband loves to ride here for breakfast but we never know if i will find something healthy for me, so we are now not even going here anymore.

    April 29th, 2012 at 8:01 am
  • What about your BBQ sauce? It says items from the grill are gluten free but what about pulled pork in BBQ sauce? Thanks!

    June 26th, 2012 at 3:44 pm
  • Oh and are the fries fried in the same fryer as anything breaded, like onion rings? Because if so, they are not gluten free unless fried in a separate fryer.

    June 26th, 2012 at 3:47 pm
  • They email you a response, here’s the one I got:

    Thank you for your questions, Allison.  Our pork and bbq sauce are gluten
    free, as well as all our french fries.  Our fries are all cooked in their
    own separate fryer to ensure they are gluten free.  If you have any more
    questions, please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
    Thanks again

    Thank you for such a detailed allergy page. I will be eating here because I know i can find something safe to eat here. thank you again.

  • Bill Loski

    Does your sauces and seasonings have MSG in them?

    August 27th, 2012 at 6:01 am
  • Jamie

    I would really like to see some nutritional information on your website. I have a tendency to eat at places without nutritional info less often than places that do because I am a meal tracker.

    tad is sending this from the Farm Grill site, food allergies section to see how it is routed.

    Great allergen guide. Would love for you to add what items contain egg. Thanks!

  • Shannon

    Thank you so much for the great allergy page, it is so refreshing to find restaurants that understand the importance of helping consumers with this type of info. One quick question, does your BBQ sauce contain any dairy?

    February 16th, 2013 at 8:42 pm
  • Chrissy

    Do you serve grassfed meat? Thanks!

    March 13th, 2013 at 1:50 am
  • Amber

    I also am interested in information on the egg allergy section as well as what alternative meals are offered for children (my daughter has to avoid, soy, dairy, gluten, and egg). I also am curious about the beef if it is grass fed. I think that it would be helpful to have the responses from Joe’s posted below the questions, since so many people have similar questions. Lastly, I agree that this is one of the best and most detailed information I’ve come across for food allergies, well done! Thank you 🙂

  • Leah

    It would be awesome if Joe’s Farm Grill would offer Gluten Free BUN for sandwiches & burgers

    June 21st, 2013 at 7:24 pm
  • Leah

    Their local beef is GRASS FED….Awesome 🙂 I’ll definitely share the word
    For anyone who has seen the movie Food Inc, you don’t want corn fed beef.

  • Sandi

    Thank You for such detailed allergy info. Seriously one of the best I’ve ever seen. I don’t expect you to cater to my specific allergy free diet, it’s a nightmare, however with your vast menu, I should be able to put something together and special request and possibly actually safely eat out. I’m so excited!

    We went to Joe’s Farm Grill today for the first time with some friends and my son has a severe allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. When I told the cashier, she called the manager over, who told me that she was “not allowed to serve people with severe/life threatening allergies”. I asked her if they had an alternative dish that he could eat and she said sorry, but she couldn’t serve him. This should be stated on the website and not that they will “take all possible precautions while preparing your order.” My son couldn’t eat there so we had to make last minute arrangements.

    August 17th, 2013 at 4:57 pm
  • Nilda

    Update to my prior comment: I received an email from Mr. Anthony Femano explaining that the change in “nut” policy (from “preparing a meal taking precautions” to “not serving people with severe or life-threatening allergies”) is fairly recent, and now they have updated their website to reflect this. I appreciate them taking food allergies seriously and not taking a risk when all precautions may not be enough. I am glad that now the website reflects this so that those with nut allergies can plan ahead.

    Please list nutrition information on the menu or website. Many people track their daily caloric intake. I prefer to patronize restaurants that have this available.

    September 2nd, 2013 at 3:52 pm
  • Kerri

    I had lunch at Joe’s today and it was excellent, a perfect treat for me. However, I would also greatly appreciate a page with nutritional information. I follow the Weight Watchers points plan online and had to do a lot of guessing regarding tody’s lunch.

    We ate there this afternoon. My son has a milk protein allergy. We looked at the allergy page before going and decided he could get the pizza with no cheese. When I got to the restaurant they told me there was whey in the crust so he couldn’t have it. That information should be on your allergy menu. I’m glad the people working there told me this but he was excited about the pizza and we had to scramble to find something he could eat and he was really disappointed. We won’t be coming back but do commend your employees for their knowledge and honesty. They saved him from getting sick.

    December 23rd, 2013 at 8:11 pm
  • Jen

    My son also has a milk protein allergy. I was just thinking about taking him. Thank you Lisa for posting the information about the pizza.

    Can you post some casein free options as part of the dairy free section?

    Is your beef grass fed?

    February 16th, 2014 at 6:28 pm
  • Erik E

    Are you open to letting me read ingredients when I visit your restaurant, if not in a neat booklet, at least showing me the bags, boxes, and cans so I can check them myself?

    Would you visit and let me know if your BBQ sauce contains anything in the first two columns (“always” and “usually”)?

    February 18th, 2014 at 4:46 pm
  • Katerina

    Hi. What are the options for corn food allergies. My kids have gluten, dairy, corn, and nut allergis, which makes it a challenge to eat out. I’ve been looking for restaurant options and I myself LOVE Joe’s Farm Grill. It appears the baby back ribs would be a good option but I couldn’t find anything about corn allergies. Often sauces have corn syrup or/and corn starch in it so I won’t be surprise if there is corn in the ribs but I thought I would ask just in case:) Also, do the fries have corn? Your feedback would be appreciated.

  • Dana Cannon

    I am vegan, what are my options? Is the veggie burger vegan?

    April 27th, 2014 at 8:40 am
  • S.

    I’m not gluten-free myself, but since someone very dear to me has celiac disease, I just wanted to say thank you for the very helpful section on gluten free options!!! It can be so frustrating for us to go out to eat sometimes, and this made our day that much easier. Thanks so much!!

    I don’t see Shellfish allergies listed and yet you serve Shrimp…… are the Fries cooked in the SAME deep fryer that the shrimp are……….

    October 29th, 2015 at 9:08 am
  • Sharon

    Hello, I also have a shellfish allergy and was wondering the same thing as the above comment (Arlene). Is the shrimp fried in the same oil as the fries?

    My daughter is Autistic and has been just diagnosed with another medical condition that dictates she eats all organic, and cannot have dyes, preservatives, nitrates or additives because they can trigger a seizure..
    So we are trying to find a place we can take her to celebrate a special occasion and I am wondering…

    Are your meats (mainly the chicken) all natural, no hormones, or additives?
    Are your pork products (like bacon/sausage/ribs) all natural and nitrate free?

    Also, if your chicken is all natural, could your chicken fingers be hand breaded in your Panko breading? She can have panko..

    We have had such a hard time finding a place where we can take her to eat, and I read that a lot of your food is sourced from the Farm, so my fingers are crossed that you might be our spot!!
    Thanks so much in advance, for your time!

    Nutrition information would be helpful for those who count every calorie they take in…thanks.
