Great food and great protocols! I think the only fast food place that I would feel comfortable eating at. They change their gloves immediately if you say that you have celiac (although they might be a bit annoyed), and they’ll sometimes scoop from separate lettuces or cheeses. You can also ask if things are GF, and they’ll show you ingredients lists.

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."

I told them I was gluten-free and they changed gloves and utensils. However, my salad bowl was somehow contaminated, because I had a reaction within an hour.

As soon as I said I had celiac, the server asked me what I wanted in my bowl. She then pulled out all the spoons from those items, took her gloves off, washed her hands, put on new gloves, and got clean spoons. They even got a new container of lettuce so that I could have some. It's always possible that there could be cross contamination from spoons touching tortillas from previous customers, but they did everything possible to make my visit safe. Update: Unfortunately, I think my food was cross contaminated despite their efforts. When they put rice on the tortillas before me, they would tap the rice off and touch the tortilla with the spoon. It just may not be possible to eat here anymore

Upon telling the employee that I require GF and asking if he would change his gloves, he washed his hand thoroughly and donned new gloves. I got a rice bowl, which was delicious, with no ill-effects later. I will definitely visit again!
