Happy to be able to order without worry tonight. You can just ask for the person preparing your food to change gloves!

You have to ask them to change gloves, which they don’t particularly care to do. If not, keep in mind those gloves touch a lot of tortillas

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 go here frequently and never have symptoms anymore. I used to have symptoms because I love the corn salsa, but since finding out it's most likely contaminated per their website I stopped using it and noticed vast improvement. I also do not bother with the corn tortillas or chips due to same issue.

Hands down the best chipotle experience I have ever had. They were so kind and thorough when I asked them to change gloves and spoons. They brought fresh lettuce and cheese without me having to explain-zero eye-rolls at my requests! They even offered to wipe down the line for me despite the growing number of customers behind me. Great customer service!

Chipotle has definitely improved as a whole with accommodating to customers with allergies. Having gone to several franchises around the U.S., the Crystal City location is doing a great job following guidelines when dealing with an allergy. The two recent times I have been here the staff has clearly communicated that I had an allergy, changed their gloves, washed their hands and got ingredients from the back to avoid cross contamination. I would definitely recommend going here and checking Chipotle’s online allergy menu ahead of time if you are unsure what you are going to order.

Some items are safe…some are not. For the most part, as long as they don’t use soy sauce in the meat, you’re safe…so don’t touch their beef! Tonight, I tried their “new” Queso…they said it was only cheese and peppers…but it was the only thing “new” in my meal tonight and I’m having one hell of a reaction.
