So…. You CAN get a safe meal here, but it’s served with a dose of attitude. When I stated my restrictions, I was first told to just go on their website to see their allergen menu. I asked to have a manager handle my meal. He came out changing his gloves but really wanted to serve me from the bins already out. I had to repeat my request for fresh bins with every topping. He never once looked me in the eye. I was obviously a nuisance to him. I won’t be returning. It’s not worth it.

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 :)
