Fresh food. Very nice for a chain. Have eaten here several times with no problems.
Tortilla chips share a fryer with flour tortilla bowls. Otherwise, I believe a majority of the food is safe, but due to cross contamination of the chips, it is not safe for celiacs.
I love the naked burrito bowls! Apparently there is a disclaimer that the chips could be cross contaminated but my son seems to not have an issue with them. But use caution with the chips!
Delicious food, but the staff was only marginal on gluten awareness. Unfortunately they fry the chips in gluten, but at least they told me
So many gluten free options at Qdoba! Burrito bowls, loaded tortilla soup, nachos and queso. All delicious! A majority of their ingredients are gluten free. Check out their website for an up-to-date allergen list. This is a go to spot for anyone with Celiacs or gluten free. I've been eating at Qdoba for many years and never been sick from cross contamination. Highly recommend!
This is a great option for a quick meal.
My daughter is celiac so we get to go containers of shredded beef and cilantro rice then make burritos and tacos at home. Cost is under $3. We've never had a problem with the food. Queso and chips have been fine too. Since this last post, we regularly visit this location and the staff continues to do a fantastic job handling our food. They wash hands and change gloves as soon as you tell them you need gluten free. One time the lady assembling our order told other staff not to touch it, that she would finish it all the way down. They must have great staff training about cross contamination. Continues to be one of our few standby safe places in the area.
I eat here often. I am a sensitive celiac. Never been sick from their food. Just about everything is GF except Flour Totillas and fried flour tortilla bowls. Qdoba says to stay away from the fried taco shells and tortilla chips due to possible cross contamination.
Menu not clear, but go for a bowl. The meats, rice, beans, chips, etc are GF. Avoid flour tortillas.
Good tasting food here. It's a fast-casual type restaurant along the lines of Chipotle and Freebirds, but nicer: better food IMO, much more seating than Chipotle, Coca-Cola Freestyle drink machine with many options, and friendly, helpful staff that are happy to change their gloves before fixing a gluten-free bowl. See the Allergen menu for details (see link above).
I eat regularly at the Q'Doba in Menomonee Falls on Appleton ave, near County Line road. I frequently ask for clean gloves, and ask them not to touch the flour burrito shell before they grab a bowl. The person who has clean gloves will frequently take my bowl all the way down the line, which is nice... Occasionally they will touch their spoons on the burrito shells, and workers who have just made burritos will grab the cheese with their contaminated gloves, BUT I have never felt "glutened" EVER from ANY Q'Doba at which I've eaten, and this makes it my "Go To" fast food joint.
Very Celiac friendly. The bowls are completely gluten free, just ask them to change their gloves before they make your food. They are very accommodating. I eat there at least once a week and never have any issues.
Cheap, and I eat here all the time. Naked burritos are a favorite, as are the nachos and the chips and queso are a favorite. My favorite winter meal is "mexican gumbo": a naked burrito with tortilla soup on top. Skip the tortilla strips, but otherwise makes this a cheap, hearty healthy meal.
I eat here all the time and have never gotten sick! They are very educated when it comes to celiac and gluten sensitivity. Whenever I say that I can't have gluten, they automatically change their gloves and wipe down the surfaces. Love them and their food.
I eat here often. Never an issue. Let them know you have gluten allergy and they'll put fresh gloves and use new utensils. Mexican soup is great. Burrito in a bowl is too. I haven't tried any of the tacos yet but they look tasty use corn tortillas.
Had a "burrito" bowl with ground beef, beans, and rice. Employee changed her gloves and told me chips have no gluten but are made in same fryer. Food was delicious.
When I visit at 9pm on a Thursday night, the employee didn't seem to have training on wheat allergies. After he was unsure about some menu and cross contamination questions I had, he asked the manger (who didn't come out to talk directly with me) and offered no additional information. Needless to say, I didn't feel comfortable eating there, so I left.
So sad! This was a very celiac friendly spot at one time, but at my last visit the staff were poorly trained and not very nice. In the past they used all utensils for adding ingredients. On the most recent trip they had switched to using their hands to serve the grated cheese so even though they will change gloves for your order many other contaminated hands already dipped into the cheese. When I asked the employee why they started doing that since keeping things clean was an advantage they had over their nearest competition, she just shrugged.
While they list all shells, chips and tortillas as either containing gluten or having a chance of cross contamination, you can still get a delicious burrito bowl with rice. They even have a kids bowl, it isn't on the menu but if you ask they have it. Their website has a complete allergen list that lists gluten specifically and not just wheat. The employees in the store were knowledgable and each item had its own utensil to reduce cross contamination risk. All the meat options were gluten free and there are loads of gluten free topping options included in the price (guacamole and queso don't cost extra). One happy parent with three happy kids (the pickiest one not only cleaned her plate she licked it clean)! We will be back a lot!
I asked the server what the gluten free items were and he had no idea what I was talking about. He got the manager who stated I would have to look on their website for ingredients as it was too much of a liability for him to declare something gluten free or not! No dedicated prep area or consideration for cross contamination.
The staff was very friendly. my daughter is also casein free, so the tacos they messed up on, they offered to me for free. But I just made them up for my husband. Flour shells are rarer, but they do use it, and have a shared warmer. So I can't rate celiac friendly. But they are great and we will eat there again.
