We used to go here quite a bit for the gluten free options for our daughter. Not sure if they changed management or if they just stopped training people, but they no longer have adequate controls in place to be considered celiac friendly or even gluten free. No bueno.

Honestly, I'm done with this chain. I went to another place about 30 miles south and my first experience I had a severe reaction (for me) with cross contamination. I went again, gave it a second chance, and I was fine. But this location let me down. The first employee down the line changed their gloves. The second did not and acted like he had no real understanding on what to do. I should have spoken up. Honestly, I feel like a putz for not saying something. But I am kinda new to my diagnosis and I thought maybe I could slide by this time. NOT. I dont think I'll be back. Training is just too inconsistent across the chain.

Notes


"We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts--tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer "oceans of gluten-free options" in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla so up...which uses corn strips."

One of my absolute favorites! They make the corn tortillas fresh in the mornings so they go on the grill before any of the flour ones. If you let them know they will happily change their gloves. Everything is gluten free but the desserts and the flour tortillas. My favorite is the sweet pork, the salad is great and so are the enchiladas. We go all the time and have never had a problem!

I can't even give this place one star! I hate giving bad reviews but I must be honest......1.) This place is not Celiac safe like they say. Fresh flour tortillas spin round on a hot plate right at the start of the buffet line. Serving spoons touch the tortillas then go right back in the bin of food. 2.)The green chili has sugar in it, the habanero salsa has sugar, the meat has sugar do not only is it hard being diabetic to properly manage the insulin dosage but it tastes terrible. Spicy mexican food is what I was after and instead it was like a jalapeno with frosting! Yuck! This place is trying to be like Chipotle but doesn't come close.

Pretty vast GF options, make the fresh made corn tortillas in the morning before they make the flour tortillas. Had the salad with grilled chicken several times and no reaction.

The workers are very good at changing there gloves when getting the gluten-free corn tortillas, and also changing when they handle my food if they’ve had to handle someone else’s food. I get a little worried because sometimes the utensils they use for the meat, cheese, sauce, etc. sometimes touches the tortillas and goes back in the containers. But so far I’ve only gotten sick once when I’ve gone through the drive thru. So be extra careful when ordering that way.

Such friendly staff and great food fast .... i just simply ordered as needing “gluten free” and they immediately change gloves and proceed to ask what you’d like. I have ordered enchiladas the few times I’ve gone... they grab corn tortillas & as soon as they pop my tray in the conveyor oven (to melt cheese) they let the next person know its gluten free coming thru... they too change their gloves. Great service & good food fast!

I’m fairly newly diagnosed so I don’t think about all the ways you can get cross contamination. The person who made my salad did not change their gloves after making a burrito. I did mention I was gluten free, and asked about a few items, just didn’t think about that.

As delicious and healthy as this place is, I have been contaminated several times. Even after asking them to change their gloves. They were always willing to help and make me feel welcome there. I’m just very sensitive and sadly won’t return. Luckily, I have many friends and family members with CS that can eat here just fine.

Edit 2019: no longer safe. Requests to redo mistakes was met with hostility as long as I watch them and remind them not to touch my food without changing their gloves, this is safe. most the time I don't have to say anything. If they do touch it on accident without changing gloves, they will remake it.

Kept getting sick every time I went in. The next time I stood in line, I found out why. They handle the tortillas and dunk their contaminated gloves in ALL of the fixuns... Continuously, making it my gluten nightmare. And I tested with my nima, and sure enough... Positive.

Everything in the restaurant is gluten free, except the flour tortillas and the desserts (except the flan). When I tell them I’m gluten free, they change their gloves and treat my item carefully. That being said, the corn tortillas are pressed and cooked on the same griddle as the flour tortillas.

They go above and beyond to make everything safe and gluten-free. The only thing with gluten are he flour tortillas so it makes ordering very easy. I love their chips and queso and the raspberry chipotle chicken salad. The flan is to die for!

Went in this evening to order dinner for myself and my celiac husband. I ordered their grilled steak salad, gluten free. No sooner were the words out of my mouth than the gentleman behind the counter threw away the tray he had pulled out, replaced his gloves with fresh ones, and grabbed gluten free tortillas. He was careful not to "contaminate" the food at any point in the process. It is delightful to be able to eat somewhere that I don't have to stress about whether it will make my husband sick. Oh, and their sweet pork is to die for.

They’ve worked really hard over the last few years to get their entire menu gluten free except for the flour tortillas! Costa vidas allergen list on their website shows what is gluten and dairy free if you have concerns. The staff at this location, however, could use a bit of training regarding CC. They changed gloves when I asked, but then left it to another employee to continue taking my salad down the line. I had to stop them before touching with their contaminated gloves. Luckily, I had no issues and most locations are better about staying with your food through the line.I’ve actually been to this location a few times as it’s an easy go-to when I need to travel to Pocatello and haven’t had problems before.

Gluten free tortillas are kept separate in a sealed bag, only brought out when asked for. All toppings and fillings are gluten free, save for the regular and whole wheat tortillas, tres leches cake, and key lime tart. The workers gladly change gloves when you two them the order is gluten free, and I have never had a reaction (painfully celiac since 2017)

I almost cried when our taco-maker asked if my son’s request for corn tortillas was a preference or an allergy. When she found out he has celiac disease, she washed her hands, changed her gloves and cooked his tacos on foil on the grill to avoid cross contamination. Wish they had one of these in Washington State! Thank you for a wonderful meal!!!

Great place to stop at on the way through town. They’ve adjusted their menu so that everything is gluten free except for the flour tortillas. Immediately changed gloves at the mention of a gluten allergy and placed a lid on the salad when finished so that no one else would touch it (even though we were staying in). Very attentive, no issues.

Theresa is awesome. I’m in here at least once a month. Sometimes a lot more than that. She is always so careful and takes good care of me. Plus she’s almost always there. To date I’ve yet to get sick from here. I’m so grateful.

We ate here recently. It’s set up like Chipotle, but the food tastes better. They said they can make anything gluten-free with a soft corn tortilla. I asked them to change their gloves. The chicken tastes fire-grilled and the rice was some of the best I’ve had anywhere! Neither my son or I got sick, so we were happy! (I’m not positive if the toppings come into contact with flour tortillas or not. That’s something to be aware of.) To melt the cheese, the staff puts the tortilla on aluminum foil on the grill. That’s a great way to do it! They make their tortillas fresh every day. Yum!
