All items are gluten free EXCEPT flour wraps. Ask server to change gloves. For gf they serve in corn tortillas or you can get bowl.

This Manchester location isn’t very safe unless you get the right server. Usually I try to get there right when they open and no one else has ordered yet

The Enfield location is fabulous for gluten free. They get all good from the back.

As soon as I said "celiac," they immediately walked away to wash hands, get new gloves, and grab fresh ingredients to ensure there was no contamination. All that plus friendly. Very appreciative!!

Notes


Chipotle does not have a gluten free menu but instead has a list of gluten-containing ingredients to avoid. Cross-contamination is a concern, however, so let the person taking your order know that you are gluten free and if you need them to take the proper precautions.

From their website: "If you avoid gluten, don't eat our flour tortillas. If you are highly sensitive to gluten and would like us to change our gloves, just let us know at the start of your order. You should be aware items containing corn, including corn tortillas (chips, soft corn, and crispy corn tortillas) and corn salsa, may have a small amount of gluten from potentially co-mingling with gluten-containing grains in the field."

My last visit was four days ago when I brought my 15yo nephew out for lunch. I have enjoyed Chipotle and it has become one of our go to spots. The line wasn't bad this time. When I asked the person who was taking orders to change her gloves for mine, I got the biggest eye roll ever. My nephew saw it, shook his head at me and asked me why she had to be rude. I'm just glad that I was the person that was directed at and not my nephew. It's hard enough to eat out with Celiac. Our lunch was delicious, just wish it wasn't served with the side of eye roll!!

Went here hoping to grab something safe before getting on Amtrak. Their seemed to be a language barrier regarding “gluten allergy” (yes, I know celiac is autoimmune, but gluten allergy seems to get more attention in restaurants). I tried explaining the protocol as I have been to many chipotles before. She got the manager. The manager handed me an allergy card, changed her gloves, and then refused to get fresh food containers even after explaining to her that it was contaminated by the tortillas. She said “that’s too bad” and put away my burrito bowl container and then said goodbye. I went across the way to Cava where I had no problems. Unfortunately, this Chipotle is not safe like I’ve known every other Chipotle in the US to be.

As soon as I mentioned the word “allergy”, the server threw away the bowl she had touched, took off her gloves, washed and sanitized her hands, and put on fresh gloves. She asked what I wanted in the bowl, and I asked if she had fresh containers she could pull from, and she immediately said, “Oh yes!! I’ll get yours from the back, not from here. I just need to know what you want.” She did everything to prepare my bowl and didn’t let anyone else touch it. Excellent service!!
