This Chipotle was well-informed about gluten-free precautions. They washed their hands, used new gloves and new serving spoons.

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."

Went to order and said I was unable to eat gluten. Server was very angry, asked if I wanted him to change gloves, I said yes, he threw the bowl, changed gloves but kept touching the flour tortillas. We spoke to the manager and she said we didn’t need to talk about it. Worst experience I have ever had at a Chipotle or any restaurant. Other Chipotles have been very good with gluten. Do not trust this one!

It's Chipotle, exactly as you'd expect from a Chipotle though the average age in the restaurant when I was there was about 20 due to it being a college town. New employees were being trained but doing a great job. I did not ask for gloves to be changed but I didn't have problems with crunchy chicken tacos, guac and hot sauce. On another visit, I watched an employee testing items for the food inspection aspect of things with a thermometer that they were wiping off on their apron as they went between the various holders of food. I would not consider that celiac safe.

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.
