    AMAZING!! I can't tell you how happy I was to find this place on our vacation. The owner is celiac, they have a separate kitchen for allergies, they have a LAMINATED actual GF menu not a paper print off, and everyone knows about all sorts of allergies not just GF. I had restaurant french fries for the first time in a year and a half and loved every second. I only wish I didn't live four hours away. Definitely give this place a try!!!

    I think if you are very sensitive it might not be safe, but I have eaten here many times and am fine. Just be sure to NOT get LETTUS or CHEESE. They grab from these bins with their gloves for all customers so both are contaminated. This goes for any location not just this one. It took me a few mishaps before I had a "duh" moment one day watching the line workers dig in. I always ask them to change their gloves and they are cool about it. I say it may not be safe for a very sensitive person because the counter isn't always clean, and there would be a chance for contamination on the outside of the container.

    What wonderful service and a very knowledgable staff. They don't have an official GF menu, but there are many things that can be made GF by just ordering them "simply steamed, broiled, or sautéed". I was told that the kitchen changes utensils and pans, and is careful with CC. I ordered salmon simply broiled, with simply steamed potatoes, and simply steamed asparagus. It was surprisingly delicious considering that there was no sauce, and I was perfectly fine after eating!! I definitely had the healthiest meal out of the whole group I was with too. I will definitely be going back here when I am in town visiting.

    I've eaten here a few times and they are really nice. I always ask the server to change their gloves before starting and then the same person will continue on down the line with my food to keep it safe. The only thing in the place that has gluten are the tortilla shells so contamination is pretty low. Love Chipotle!
