Almost everything is gluten free, similar to Chipotle. They have a full allergen list on their website.
Love the tortilla soup.
Staff was very knowledgable of what was and wasn't gluten free, I have celiac disease so I am a bit more careful, they have corn tortillas for tacos but they are fries in same area as flour ones and only 2 sauces have gluten but if you get a naked bowl or salad there are a lot of choices. I had a great experience with the gal that did our order and would definitely go back again.
Yes they have no idea what gluten is. but I did my homework like I always do and it's a safe place to eat.
The person helping me was completely unaware of what a gluten allergy was. Had to get the manager. The manager had no idea where their gluten free menu was. The lady taking my order was asked to change her gloves several times but touched the inside of my bowl before she changed her gloves. Not completely unhappy but I think they need more training on all allergies.
This review is only regarding this particular Qdoba location. We ordered soft corn tortillas, which are listed on Qdoba's website as gluten free. We were given flour tortillas, which we did not realize until we were halfway through our meal. We feel stupid about that, and it is our fault that we weren't more careful, but the fact remains that we were given flour tortillas when we specified corn, so we were glutened. Besides that, the staff was not friendly, the bathrooms were not clean (10 minutes after opening), and when we showed the flour tortillas to the person working the register and explained what happened, we didn't even get an apology. Overall, just a really bad experience. Please be more careful than we were.
Terrible service and I think I was exposed. Milk is surprisingly in almost everything, like most of the meat seasonings. I will not be back to this location, probably not other locations either.
I asked the man working about what had gluten and he recommended the naked burrito, so good! Their tortilla chips are also good. He went through the line of choices with me and told me what and what not is gluten free. Plus he changed his gloves!
Except for the Barbeque Sauce, brownies and potatoes, it's all safe.
The manager of the Q'doba on Howell has a shellfish allergy, so he completely understands how dangerous eating out can be for Celiacs. Most of his staff know both my daughter and me and change their gloves before we even ask. I have not gotten sick from eating here. The one on 76th is great too.
I ate here all the time pre-diagnosis (celiac). The last time I was in was a few weeks ago, and I told them that my son and I might have to go completely gluten-free...fast-forward to today. I haven't eaten out anywhere yet but thought i'd give it a try. The manager and server behind the counter saw me walk in and before I said anything went and got clean spoons and the server went and washed her hands and hot clean gloves!! Not only did they remember out conversation weeks ago but they had done research on safety procedures! They even put a sheet of tinfoil under my bowl so even the bottom would be uncontaminated! I'm blown away by their thoughtfulness and customer service. Highly recommend (plus it is delicious food)
Their website was a great tool. I am not a celiac but extremely sensitive to wheat soy and dairy. Totally picked what I wanted just from the website. It tasted great.
