Great workers who actively offered to switch gloves and were helpful. Most items on the allergen menu are gluten free, but I knew immediately there was some cross contamination. Would’ve probably had a better experience going earlier in the day when all sides had been made fresh and just placed in the serving area.

I eat here at least once a week. I always get a rice bowl with chicken. I make sure they change their gloves and never have gotten sick. Everything is gluten free except the flour tortillas but I feel confident I’m safe with cc.

I ordered online and used the allergen menu to guide my order. When I arrived they said they couldn’t make it because nothing would be gluten free. I appreciate them telling me rather than making it when they didn’t think it was safe, but I was a bit confused. This could have been one employee unfamiliar with their allergens and cross contamination, so I will give them that. But overall they did not make me feel very confident in their awareness.

All of the food here is gluten-free according to the staff person. Except of course the flour burrito wraps. I don’t know what their soft taco wraps are made of. I don’t think they serve crispy tacos. The first person in the assembly line did not know what celiac was (Possible language barrier). The second person knew all the ropes and offered to start my bowl over, to which I agreed. They change their gloves and redid my bowl. That person also knew I might not want lettuce because they touch it with their gloved hands that also touch burritos.

Today, we had the best experience at any Qdoba! It was in Rapid City, SD and I asked the gentleman if he could change his gloves because my daughter has celiac! He not only changed his gloves, but made everyone else change their gloves and then packaged up hers separately! He was so amazing and when we told him “Thank you” for the last time he replies “no worries, I know it’s more than just an intolerance and don’t want her to get sick”!

Again, when we asked if he could change his gloves because of celiac, he was amazing!

All ingredients are GF except the tortillas, unsure about the chips. The person helping me had just returned from break so they were already putting on fresh gloves, but I have a feeling a reminder would have been needed. Had a great experience, food was delicious and I didn’t have to explain anything or ask a bunch of questions.

Server changed gloves and advised me not to have the corn shell as they deep fry it. Had a taco salad. She got a fresh bin of cheese out for me. She was knowledgeable and downright stellar. I’d eat here again. The food was great.

Pretty much the brisket taco salad was the only gluten feee but it was very good.

The server was knowledgeable when I told them that I have celiac disease. She immediately changed her gloves and told all of the other servers. It is NOT a dedicated gluten free kitchen, but similarly to chipotle, the meats and veggies are all GF - avoid the tortillas, potatoes (deep fried), and sauces (except pick de Gallo)

I looked at the allergen sheet and most everything is gluten free except the tacos bc they use flour tortillas. The bowls do not contain wheat. Some of the salad dressings are not gluten free. The chips “may contain [wheat].” I can’t rate on safeness bc I did not eat here. I did not want to risk it since I accidentally ate something with gluten a couple of days ago.

Excellent. Food tasted great. One of the staff went and washed and changed gloves and then spent the time to take our food down the whole line in order to minimize any risk of cross contamination. Not only did it taste great and feel good in our stomachs but it also was affordable.

I am not sure how (or if) they train their employees to deal with customers with gluten issues. I told the employee I had a gluten allergy (technically I have celiac disease, but I find servers understand the severity better when I use the term “allergy”), and he didn’t seem to know what I was talking about. I had to ask him to change his gloves. Nothing I ordered had gluten in it but I still got sick afterwards so I am assuming I got cross-contaminated somehow.

I have to eat gluten free due to a high sensitivity to gluten. I’ve eaten Qudoba MANY times at other locations without a problem when I order a burrito bowl. So, prior to our flight, I chose to order a burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, chicken, Pico, lettuce, and guacamole. This is my standard order at Qudoba. However, within 15 minutes of finishing my food, I began to not feel well. My stomach began to hurt, I felt bloated, and had to find a restroom stat! We almost missed our flight due to how I felt. I was miserable on the flight, but thankfully made it to our destination with only one trip to the restroom while on the plane. I think that there was either gluten in something I ate or the food was contaminated with something else. Beware, that this Qudoba location is NOT safe!!!

Told the girl I was gf, she immediately took off her gloves, washed her hands and put on new gloves. The cashier was knowledgable in what I could/could not have. No tortilla, no chips and no spicy sauce. I was able to get a rice bowl with chicken and queso. Not much I could not eat. No reaction. Very good experience.

The staff will prepare your food using fresh ingredients from new bins. Some staff will try to argue and say they are all trained to not touch the spoon to the tortillas. That may be true but I have seen them do cross contamination that way and with touching using their hands. One manager in particular will argue with you. It sucks but I love me a burrito bowl lol just stand your ground if you are celiac. Calling ahead is best because I have gone in before and waited in a very long line, only to get to the front and be told (by that same manager who always argues) that they would need to serve the other customers first. I ended up leaving. UPDATE: Just tried to come back here and was explaining how I needed the ingredients out of fresh bins because even the utensil touching the tortilla would make me sick. He then proceeded to throw every utensil from the bins to the side and throw in new ones and then asked what I wanted. I will never come back to this location, it was unprofessional and rude

Over the past few years, this has become my go to for eating gluten free for around $10 at the airport.

I do ask the person working to change gloves and be the only one prepping my bowl. I learned to ask from a different location's manager who is celiac.

Only negative I've experienced is that each person is so different when portioning. Sometimes my bowl is quite full and other times it has lots of airspace.

The burrito bowl seems to be the safest thing here, and it’s not bad. Based on the items in their assembly line there seems to be a relatively low chance of cross-contamination (the tortillas aren’t kept near open food). I didn’t get glutened. Just FYI, there isn’t really anything GF after security in Terminal A (other than candy).

I had to ask the server to change his gloves, which he did, but only put salad in the bowl and passed it down the line to the next person without saying a word to her about my celiacs or anything. Her hands were all over my salad after touching the flour tacos in line in front of me. Not safe for celiacs. Better off going just down the hall toward terminal to floret, where they have premade food in the deli case marked gluten free or several gluten free options on the menu

The staff member who tried to help us must have been new. We went during a slow hour (2:30pm) and she seemed really put out when I asked for a hand wash and glove change after she'd been resting her hands on the flour tortillas. The manager confirmed which items on the bar were GF but she didn't step in to assist as the staff member put multiple corn tortillas on the tortilla warmer. She really didn't understand what I was asking her to do. The staff member at the other end of the line by the salsas let her know she needed to see that dish to the end of the line, so somehow she knew allergy procedures. All I can guess is the member who helped us was so new she didn't know, but she seemed really annoyed with us and that was most off-putting.
