Visited the 52 W 52 location. Matt behind the counter was very knowledgeable. Only gluten on premises is faro and flour tortillas. The corn tortilla are very good and the food is fresh. I asked them to change gloves and Matt was smart and put down foil in the warmer. Dedicated fryer for the chips!

This is basically a variation of chipotle. Good lunch spot in the loop. I had the burrito bowl, but the mild sauce was too mild so will try medium next time. Their website is really well done and organized. It clearly states all menu items are gluten free except for the Farro, flour burrito and quesadilla. You have to be careful when ordering because they will ask you if you want both farro and rice in your bowl. Also the farro sits in front of the rice on the assembly line so it’s less possible to get mixed in to your order.
First time I went they were great and changed gloves and heated my tortillas on tinfoil without me even asking. Last time I was there though the girl working literally did not know what Celiac disease was and after I asked her to change gloves and heat my tortillas on tinfoil (as to avoid cross contamination) she proceeded to put them on the griddle where the wheat tortillas are cooked. They should not have employees working who do not know the basics of food allergies.
I explained both in english and spanish about my condition. Two different employees recommended the tacoa, and then when I asked about guacamole, a third employee said that the tacos were NOT gf. I left without even trying them...
Great food. Staff was friendly and courteous and gladly changed gloves when I asked. I'm a very sensitive celiac and had no contamination issues. I would caution you to watch them prepare it as I had to explain I couldn't eat a corn tortilla warmed on the same surface as a flour one.
Came here for lunch based on prior review and had a great experience! I had the tacos which were on soft corn shell and very tasty. Staff friendly and knowledgable about GF. Fresh ingredients used..cozy atmosphere.
