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."

I've gotten their bowls many times and have never gotten sick. They are willing to change gloves and spoons, their food is low risk for cross contact. I have celiac and would recommend Chipotle!

The person making my burrito bowl always changes their gloves before starting to prep my burrito bowl. I have Celiac Disease and I am able to order all meats and salsa - everything is gluten free except for the tortillas.

Great gluten free options! Staff were very friendly and cautious, washing their hands, changing gloves, and getting new serving spoons. They even asked if we had any questions and took the time to review all their ingredients! I was very, very impressed!!!

Great experience here. As a celiac I ask them to wash hands, change gloves and make my bowl from fresh ingredients in the back. Very nice and accommodating and I did not get sick.

Normally we depend on Chipotle when we travel because even if the servers aren't well trained you can watch them and explain everything as your food is prepared. That is what we had to do here. While we were eating I unfortunately witnessed an employee take a salsa cup, while not wearing gloves, and dip it into something on the line. He threw it into his mouth and then got another cup and did the same thing with another item.

Staff was very accommodating. On their own, they got new bins of cheese and lettuce for us, changed their gloves, and got new spoons for the rice when we asked them to.

Just opened. Staff are good about changing gloves and avoiding cross contamination. Flour tortillas are the only gluten-containing ingredient on the menu.

Told all ingredients for rice bowls were gluten free. They do have corn taco shells. Note: they have wheat taco shells too.

My favorite restaurant. Always a GF staple. I always get the burrito chicken bowl with chips and quac. I know some of the protein options are not GF so be sure to verify. Chicken and queso are both GF and delicious.

Do NOT eat here if celiac. Gf ingredients are good. But I watched them contaminate every single items as they did a huge line of flour tortillas. It was lunch and busy - then died down and I watched them tidy up. I would have been sick if I hadn’t seen that and it was a quiet time. They offered to get me a new spoon to serve, but not knowledgeable about cross contact. Be safe!

I love Chipotle but this particular location is terrible ! I have been here multiple times in the past and the workers seem to have no knowledge about celiac disease. The place isn’t that clean either. One of the staff members rolled his eyes at me when I asked him to change his gloves and wash his hands because I have celiac. I love their food and they are usually so careful about cross contamination but this location is not the best .
