Excellent options labeled online. The most extensive ingredient and allergen labeling menu I've ever seen. Great food, too. Highly recommend.

Pretty good, staff will change gloves and utensils if you ask. A lot like Chipotle but with good margs

Specify that you’re Celiac, get them to change gloves. They said that everything except green Chile and flour tortillas are GF. I ate and had no issues! Tortilla chips are gf and have dedicated fryer!

I have celiac and got sick. you must specify that you have celiac to get them to change gloves, if you say gluten free-they use gloves used in gluten food. Though they use different gloves, other gloves that touched gluten containing foods are still reaching into the same containers. I did not feel good after.

Had a delicious lunch here. Staff was very knowledgeable about celiac disease. Corn tortillas were made in toaster between baking paper and with clean gloves. They knew which meat and veggies I could choose for my lunch bowl.

Amazing! GF tortillas and chips are great. Guacamole is free with any meal. Has a full bar. Food is served up in a manner similar to Chipotle or Qdoba, but more options and higher quality. Fish tacos and burrito are exceptional, made fresh, so they take a few extra minutes.
