We love the Mankato Chipotle! We go every time we're in town because it's fantastic food, good prices, healthy stuff and they are great about understanding GF stuff. I always say that we're GF before we order and they automatically change their gloves and are cautious about everything they touch. Everything on the menu is GF other than the flour tortillas but don't order corn tortillas because they will sometimes warm them in the press that is used for thousands of flour tortillas and obviously not at all safe. We just order burrito bowls and are happy. The staff is also very friendly. We are always happy there.
Food was good, but no gluten free wraps and all the food seems to be cooked in the same area, so contamination could be a issue if you are truly gluten free. 8 bites in and my stomach started hurting. I wouldn't waste my time going there again
I went to the one on Veterans. When I asked for corn tortillas and stated that I had gluten allergies the lady handling the tortillas did nothing different. She threw them in the same steamer as any other shell would have gone into. I am not super sensitive so I am not overly concerned, but it would have been nice if she would have acknowledged me. The tacos were really good, but now I am waiting for the after effects if she used the wrong tortillas or they were contaminated enough to impact me.
I have never gotten sick from chipotle. It is always my go to. You can ask the individuals at the front to change their gloves for you since they usually touch flour tortillas. Burrito bowls are the best way to go. Everything except the tortillas is gluten free.
Just had the best experience at this location. I told them I had a gluten allergy and they changed gloves and all utensils out of everything! They did it seamlessly so I didn't feel awkward! Great job!!!
Oh, Chipotle. My go-to gluten-free "I don't feel like cooking" meal. Thank you for existing! This specific location is great with avoiding cross-contamination risks. The staff is always happy to change their gloves when assembling my burrito bowl or salad, and I have yet to have any issues eating here. It's not the most authentic place in the world, but it's pretty yummy and I trust it. So I will be a customer for life.
Chipotle is my favorite place to get a gluten free meal. I dine here once a month at least and have not had a problem yet. Each time I was there, a staff member changed gloves. Once, I heard a worker warn another not to touch my dish as it was gf. Needless to say, I was impressed! The burrito bowls are fabulous!!
The person below me must be a booger. Anytime I've gone and tell them I'm gluten free, one person takes off their gloves, washes their hands, and gets new gloves. They offer to change out the spoons or utensils. And one person handles my food the whole time. Absolute A++++++ effort.
One of our favorite places to go. They always change gloves and utensils when we tell them it's an allergy.
Love the service here, and great care in preparing good without cross contamination.
they were really good about making sure our order was not contaminated. they made an extra effort to accommodate us. I highly recommend this place.
My experiences with staff have generally been good - all have changed gloves upon request and a few have even brought out new bins of toppings that other gloves may have reached into and contaminated BUT - last time I was there, I watched one of them dump white rice off a flour tortilla back into the bin after the customer before me clarified she had asked for brown. This place may work for those who are just GF but it is not safe for celiacs concerned about cross-contamination. I'm bummed cause they used to be a quick, go to spot for me!
Very good service, friendly helpful staff. When I mentioned my gluten sensitivity the employee immediately washed his hands, changed his gloves and got a fresh bowl for my food, since he had already touched the other one with contaminated gloves. Great experience, and no ill effects
Every time we have been to Chipotles they have been very willing to accommodate needs. My daughter is Celiac so we can't even have contamination. Since the only thing on their menu that has gluten is the flour tortillas, they change gloves and make sure they use tinfoil under everything. She has never had an episode, but we do stand there and make sure. We also find this a healthier fast food alternative.
I wanted to single out this location because they do an excellent job with keeping gluten and soy allergens safe from people - changing gloves and spoons on request. They also have two staff who ARE celiac and can really steer you towards the safest items. And they are willing to experiment on request (ever order off the "secret" menu like - nachos, corn tortilla quesadillas, etc.? It's a lot of fun.) This is my favorite location for the most friendly, flexible, and great staff. I've also used them for catering and they do a great job.
Best! I rarely ever get to stuff my face and this is one place I get to! Mmmmm!!
