this chipotle is great for celiacs! they are always so nice and understanding, they willingly volunteer to get new lettuce and cheese for my bowl that haven’t been contaminated
GF. No cross contamination.
Not particularly gf sensitive or trained. The first server changed gloves but the rest of the line did not. Nor did they switch out the serving spoons
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 actually know how to handle gluten free.
Happy to be able to order without worry tonight. You can just ask for the person preparing your food to change gloves!
Took my celiac son there yesterday, told them I needed celiac safe, they wiped down everything, changed spoons, brought out fresh stuff, washed hands, changed gloves. Awesome, no problem!
Chipotle is always a great choice for GF. it is very easy to select your favorite items and make it gf. All the ingredients are very fresh and a great gf selection!!
— Not very
Hands down the best chipotle experience I have ever had. They were so kind and thorough when I asked them to change gloves and spoons. They brought fresh lettuce and cheese without me having to explain-zero eye-rolls at my requests! They even offered to wipe down the line for me despite the growing number of customers behind me. Great customer service!
— No gluten-free information on the menu
Chipotle has definitely improved as a whole with accommodating to customers with allergies. Having gone to several franchises around the U.S., the Crystal City location is doing a great job following guidelines when dealing with an allergy. The two recent times I have been here the staff has clearly communicated that I had an allergy, changed their gloves, washed their hands and got ingredients from the back to avoid cross contamination. I would definitely recommend going here and checking Chipotle’s online allergy menu ahead of time if you are unsure what you are going to order.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
