Chipotle is one of my favorite restaurants! I feel confident eating here, and it’s one of my go-to spots in a pinch. However, (as some of the other reviews mentioned) it is important to know what to say! It’s pretty much the same for all Chipotle locations- ask them to change their gloves for your allergy. In my experience (with many, many chipotles) there have never been any issues at all with this. Then, that same person will take you down the line and take care of your food. Usually, the only ones that mess this up are the newbies, but the manager will almost always step in if there is concern. Please remember- YOU NEED TO ASK FOR ACCOMMODATIONS. For example, if you are more sensitive, ask them to change the spoons in the containers. Also, in terms of cross contamination, it is essential that you have them get ingredients like cheese and lettuce from under the counter! As always, go with you gut- if it feels unsafe, get a new one made. Personally, I’ve never gotten sick at a Chipotle, but I do understand how it could happen. Although it is unfortunate that there has to be these reminders, I have had really awesome experiences with Chipotle. It has saved me when traveling so many times, and I feel very safe when going there.

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."

Most items are GF. They will change gloves if you ask. The beans are GF but always upset my stomach so I avoid them and don’t have issues.

Stopped here because chipotle is usually good. They were clueless about cross contamination and allergy protocols. I went to Martins and grabbed food while my family ate their meals.
