If you are highly sensitive, it may be your best bet to avoid. I have been going to this location for years now and I always ask the staff member making my bowl to change their gloves. I’ve never had an issue personally, but given the small kitchen space the possibility of cross contamination could be high and those who are more sensitive may feel the consequences. The staff at Amherst Have always been accommodating and understanding when I explain my celiac disease.

I have Celiac and I am thankful this location knows what to do to keep me safe. I’ve been there several times but the last time they were swamped and I hated to tell them, but I did. They changed gloves, utensils, and got new items from the back and kept smiling the whole time!

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."

Very impressed. I began by asking if they have a GF menu and immediately the guy behind the counter called out "gluten allergy, everyone change gloves and serving utensils"... no hesitation or grief, everyone did so and they made me a taco using three small corn tortillas instead of the large flour tortilla. Lots of GF toppings to choose from. Very yummy and healthy lunch option!

The servers had no idea about gluten free procedures and neither did the manager on duty. We left.

Gluten-free safety all depends on the shift manager at this location. Numerous times I’ve eaten here no problem with great management. However, the last time an evening Sept 2021 I had the worst manager service ever! I kindly told the manager “M” my celiac issues and at first she didn’t even want to offer anything for me to eat. Once I mentioned I had eaten there a lot of times before and what the previous manager did for me she was accommodating but completely rude to me. In fact, about 15 people’s food came to completion before she dealt with mine and I mean these people were done eating and wanting to leave and I arrived 10 minutes ahead of them because I was with them but wanted to avoid holding them up. After waiting forever, I could NOT believe it when the same manager went from working the line straight to touching my food. I politely said I can not eat that because she touched it with contaminated gloves, she got angry and threw it away. Said she’d remake it “special” but when it came it was super hot with jalapeños. I didn’t ask for any of those and this had not happen before. Sadly she Never apologized for any of it, nor offered any reimbursement. My girder finally came out about 10 minutes after my group had left the restaurant but as said super spicy. Maybe that’s what she meant by she’d make it “special”?!?!

So BEWARE not every manager wants to deal with special celiac needs! VERY disappointing cause I used to go here with full confidence.

Server was unaware of gluten free protocols. First time manager bailed me out, second time manager was not much help.

To echo others: staff at this location typically take precautions if asked, swapping gloves, serving implements, and will outright swap the elements they typically hand-grab (lettuce and cheese). Even so, I've been had what I'd chalk up to exposure at this location. Not sure why, beyond just cross-exposure when preparing elements in the back area. Still, if you have to: here it is.
