Staff followed protocol. Washed hands, changed gloves. Even brought out separate bin of lettuce to help avoid cross contamination.

I watched one of the servers touch the flour burritos with her spoon as she added toppings and stick the spoon back in the foods. when I explained that it would make me sick, she apologised but I don't think she actually understood. a line backed up behind me and I finally gave up and skipped lunch. I've never seen this before at Chipotle but in addition, the other server started to give my son flour tortillas when I specified gluten free so there may be a problem with training at this location.

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."

The staff was not friendly. I asked for specifically gluten-free food and they said they could accommodate me they told me that they kept everything separate but what they neglected to tell me was they use the same fryers and saying tortilla maker grills for the gluten-free ones as well so just save yourself some hassle and some cross-contamination and don't go here.

I enjoy this Chipotle in particular because the manager has Celiac. Staff are knowledgeable because he's shared his plight. Staff always changes gloves and preps tacos in a basket so they don't touch the counter.

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 .
