I told them about my gluten allergy and they immediately washed their hands and changed their gloves. They also took out separate spoons. The bowl was delicious!
Bowls can be made gluten free, highly recommend the buffalo and blue cheese. Employees change their gloves and use different spoons.
When we stated we had celiac they immediately communicated to each other. Someone came over to take our orders separately. Washed her hands got gloves and separate utensils. It hard to figure out about spices etc. hoping that’s ok. The only concern is when they scoop things onto burritos - hoping they don’t touch. Much better option then the children’s food court across the way!
I've eaten there many many times and never gotten sick. Just get the bowl.
I've ate here many times, never had an issue with both my gluten and dairy intolerances. You can inform them of the allergy and they will avoid cross contamination, however, I stopped doing so because I know what I can and cannot eat from their menu and still haven't had any issues
My wife and I just had our second baby. This is our first since being diagnosed. The food is amazing. Not all of the staff understands what is and what is not gluten free. I had a near miss with the Thai peanut bowl, since the Asian slaw is made with soy sauce with gluten in it. Fortunately one of the managers caught it before I left with my food. Definitely the only thing that kept me going and full. Great job
I came here tonight starving after visiting a very sick family member. I asked if they had gluten free wraps, the guy said no. I asked what their other gf options were and he pointed to the cardboard size examples on the wall and said "containers". Rudest response at a restaurant I've ever had. If I could give it 0 state I would.
Offer choose your own items for a burrito bowl or salad. Lots of gf choices and vegetarian options.
This is AMAZING with allergies. They grab all new ingredients from the back so there’s no cross contamination. I come here multiple times a week with no issues. One of my favorite restaurants
Must amend my previous positive review after learning the online menu doesn’t list every single allergen! Turns out among other things the Asian slaw has soy sauce in it!! Behind the register they have a more comprehensive allergen listing. I was floored and upset bc I’ve ordered the Asian slaw in dishes before!
I am so glad I found Boloco as it has become by go to place for a quick breakfast or lunch, when in Boston.
The staff largely doesn't know what is GF is and isnt, but they have a whole allergen list that you can look through. The easy thing is to just avoid the flour wraps, their asian inspired sauces and seemingly most everything else is pretty much fine.
They also will make your breakfast wrap in a bowl as well.
When I would explain that I cannot have gluten, the staff, even if they weren't exactly sure what gluten was, would wash their hands, change their gloves, double check and ask me about each ingredient and have a single person make my bowl.
It is basically a Chipotle but with breakfast and some really cool sauces like buffalo and indian inspired tikka masala.
All in all, the chance for cross contamination is there, as things could fall into different stations, but the staff seemed to do a good job.
I'd recommend their eggs and chorizo bowl for breakfast
