If you stick with burrito or salad bowls, you will be fine at this location. They are very nice and change gloves etc for you.

I used to be worried about chipotle because of the cross contact but I've never gotten sick and my gluten detection dog always passes the food except the outside of the container on occasion. I do not eat the cheese (dairy free) or get anything else that they touch with just their gloves so take that into consideration.

Everything but the tortillas are gf. My only issue was they were touching the spoons to the tortillas and then back into the serving bowl so everything was contaminated.

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."

They will change their gloves if you ask. But since everyone is digging their hands in the lettuce with their gloves on, I don't ask anymore. I haven't had any problems there, it's a great option when you aren't up for cooking.

I eat at this location frequently and have had no issues. I’m not worried about cross-contact since the only thing with gluten are the flour tortillas. I love the corn tortilla chips and guacamole. I typically get a salad with a variety of toppings.

I have had all great experiences at this chipotle! As long as you order a bowl and avoid the seasonal items/ask about them, you should be good! Staff are often rushed because it gets busy but they are friendly and can answer questions. I have never felt sick after eating here.

Literally everything at chipotle is GF aside from the tortillas! You can make a bowl and even eat the chips! Listed as GF on their website.

I recently had a terrible experience at this location. The initial person prepared mine and my family's bowls at the same time. My daughter's meal included tacos (we did not know it included tacos as, on the menu, it did not mention it.). The employee touched the gluten-tacos and, then, my bowl. I asked her to wash hands/change gloves, and she was extremely annoyed by my request (speaking back to me, pointing her finger at me). When she returned to the counter, she picked up the tacos and moved them (I am unclear why). I, again, asked her to wash hands/change gloves, to which she refused and continued to ask what else I wanted with my bowl. My husband chimed in, but it went on deaf ears. We left without food. I will not return to this location.

Didn't need to ask for them to change gloves as the server washed his hands and changed gloves as soon as we got there. Had a bowl and it was really good. Went to Chipotle a lot before diagnosis so was a bit anxious but no need, it was great.
