Most times are good but pantops location is always better as far as food quality and precautions. Likely because this place is busier with a lot of college kids going to this location.

I’ve been to several different Chipotle locations and have been satisfied with the precautions made for GF. This location is the exception. The staff’s knowledge about procedures for preventing cross-contact was nonexistent. The front line food assemblers were using gloved hands to scoop out food for the burritos and bowls. When I asked for toppings to be taken from new containers not on the front line (lettuce, cheese), I was told it was all good since the one person attending to my order had changed gloves (even though the guy next to him was using his gloved hands to put food on a flour wrap and then roll it up!) Awful place, don’t put yourself in danger of cross-contamination here!

Chipotle is usually my saving grace, but this one freaks me out sometimes. The person at the beginning station always handles tortillas heavily, and sometimes will put almost their entire gloved hand into the next bowl (more than other Chipotle’s do). I don’t think people here are very allergy conscious, but I’ve never had a contamination problem before. The food at this locale tastes better than most!!

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."

No dedicated gf kitchen, so allergic folks should stay clear but for those with just a sensitivity, the menu is great. Sub corn tortillas for flour. Always safe to ask about ingredients but I've eaten a chic and rice bowl with zero issues.

Solid Chipotle experience. Server immediately knew what to do when I said celiac. Washed hands. Hand sanitizer. New gloves. And then he asked me everything I was going to order and changed all the spoons at once. He got new lettuce and cheese from below (that’s the one they reach hands into- hands that have touched flour tortillas). This one is many in their chain of restaurants that keeps us trusting chipotle and choosing them no matter the city.

Generally the staff is very accommodating and cleans the surface, changes gloves, delegate spoons. Only once when they were busy did they seem put out, but I didn’t care, I still insisted on the necessary precautions.

They took care not to cross contaminate. Kids taco meal was made safely. Excited to have a new GF fast food option. Celiac and no reaction.
