Not all Chipotle’s are created equally. Michelle at this location immediately removed gloves and thoroughly washed her hands and lower arms, she got rice and beans that was on reserve (for the next refill). She took all the necessary steps to minimize cross contamination with a smile. No signs of being bothered especially since a line was forming. We need more Michelle’s. I got a rice bowl, with beans & fajita veggies. I avoid the cold toppings because of the standard use of hands or spoons touching flour tortillas.

Update: Went back and got glutened, so reducing rating I will only eat at this location if Michelle is working.

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."

Some Chipotle are good. This one is not. Gave it three tries and got glutening symptoms after each time. No doubt tons of cross contamination. Definitely not celiac safe

Everything but the tortillas are gf. My only issue was they were touching the spoons to the tortillas and then back into the serving bowl so everything was contaminated.

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.

The young man here was so incredibly knowledgeable. Made all employees scrub and change gloves. Switched out the toppings from the back. And told an employee that walked up to work on line to step back there is an allergy. High five for this location!
