Their website mentioned special diets so I decided to try it. No mention on the menu so I asked, was told “uhm I don’t know wait a moment,” and then “I’m so sorry our general manager isn’t here.” So I left and my husband got dinner for himself.

The quality has gone down and I had a reaction the last time I ate here. Not worth the risk for me.

2/21/15: Ordered off the allergen list. Pretty good.

walked in and instantly turned around - zero care. saw someone touch a tortilla and then reach their hand into the cheese multiple times. this was after letting a person reach their whole phone over the glass counter to show an order. i was hoping to be able to just ask for a glove change and be able to eat here but nope - not safe.

I went and asked the staff to change their gloves because of a gluten allergy. They happily complied. They were not knowledgeable about gluten, but there is an allergen key online that I used to indicate if items were safe. I will note that gluten and wheat are on the opposite ends of the key so make sure to look at both. They do use just their gloves hands to grab lettuce and cheese toppings, so if you are extremely sensitive this isn't the safest place. I did not get sick from eating here though.

I advised I had a gluten allergy. Asked if I want the "sheet" (menu showing gluten free). I said I had it pulled up on my phone. Then he grabbed a bowl asked what I wanted. Ask they change their gloves due to the allergy. He did & continued to grab the same bowl that had already been "glutened". I went ahead & just left at this point because I could tell he was not informed & there was zero safety used when handling gluten allergies

Pretty solid- like chipotle but with free guac. They changed their gloves as soon as I said I have Celiac so I didn't even have to ask :)
