My first time eating here after diagnosis with celiac, and they changed all the safety boxes for me -- washed hands and switched gloves, and got my hand-picked ingredients from a fresh bin. No complaints!

So here is the thing. When I was standing in line, I saw them scoop rice from the bowl and repeatedly touch the spoon against a wheat tortilla then put it back in the rice bowl. This continued for the meats and the beans. So when I was up to order, I asked that they take my food from new containers in the kitchen. They said that their allergy protocol was to change gloves, wipe the counter down and bring new containers of cheese and lettuce. I let them know that the rice, meat, and beans were all contaminated because the spoon kept touching wheat. They still said no. I talked to a manager who finally relented.

I emailed Chipotle and they apologized and said that the restaurant should have honored my request. I think Chipotle is safe for Celiacs if food is taken from new containers. If not, it is not safe

Went to the new one in Dover. Told them I have a gluten allergy and just asked that she change her gloves. The whole line changed their gloves, washed their hands and wiped down the whole counter. They are great!!

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 here didn’t miss a beat. Without asking they wiped down all the work surfaces, informed me that all options excepting the soft tortillas were gluten-free. They took cheese and lettuce from a fresh bin and changed all gloves before helping.

Great service, conscientious employees and wonderful experience.

I love chipotle. Gluten free accomodations can be easily made with their burrito bowls which are made with cilantro lime rice, salsa, lettuce, chicken or beef (optional), and guacomole (even though it is a little bit of extra money, however if you order vegetarian you can get it for free). Chipotle is fast food but they are famous for their efforts to get humanely raised meat and fresh vegetables free of GMO's. This isnt a good place for celiacs because they are not careful enough with cross contamination, but if you just have a gluten allergy, this is the place to go!

I told the server I was gluten intolerant and she changed her gloves, wiped down the counter, and made sure no one else touched my food. And it was a very, busy time. I was very impressed. Oh and the food was yummy too!

This is the second time I’ve tried coming to this location where they weren’t able to accommodate me. I had asked them if they could use new spoons and get food from the prepared food bin that hadn’t been touched yet. They told me that the only food they have prepared is the salsa and everything is made fresh to order (idk how true this is or if it’s just employees being lazy, considering the past reviews where other people didn’t have this problem). They told me they could wash hands and change gloves though which honestly doesn’t do anything for anyone who has Celiac and is very sensitive to CC. It’s disappointing. I’m not sure about the other Chipotle in Fort Collins but I had this same issue at the Loveland location as well. Bummer!

When we went in, I let them know I would need to order GF due to medical reasons. They asked me what toppings I was going to use, and then they switched all those out for new containers, as well as used new utensils. They were one of the first places that didn’t make me feel like a nuisance for asking for accommodations. Definitely will use this location in the future.

I've been to many Chipotles around the country. It's hit and miss whether the first employee knows gfree protocol. However, as soon as I mentioned gluten free, the employee wiped counter, washed hands, put on new gloves, got 5 separate clean serving spoons and saw my order thru to the end without passing off to anyone else. Compliments to her and the manager! Given the care they showed, I have more confidence in their avoiding cross contamination behind the scenes. I'll give them more business.

Usually chipotle is my go to for a safe meal But this place was a mess. Food flying everywhere into different buckets. The food handlers hands were in the bowls. My family ate and I decided not to order.
