This is one of the best Qdoba’s. They do a lot of business and the food is always freshly cooked. You build your meal as you go through the line.

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!

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

As long as you make your requests known for them to follow their gluten-free procedures my daughter, who has celiac, has never had an issue.

I’ve had decent luck at this one (south county mall) but not so much at the Loughborough location. Some ingredients are reached in to by gloved hands — that touch other wheat products. I’m

I actually work here. Great place. The only things with gluten are the obvious tortillas and deserts. HOWEVER, listed on the allergen list online, it says chips are made with corn tortillas. THIS IS WRONG. I have made the chips, and they are made with flour tortillas. I have rarely gotten sick from this place, but DO NOT TOUCH THE CHIPS.

Safest option here is to get a bowl. Some staff were not aware of what items had Gluten but, after I expressed my concerns with having Celiac several staff now remember me and ensure they take precautions. I always request glove changes and wipe surfaces when I stop.

They have an allergy menu and most ingredients are naturally gluten free, but they take no measures against cross contamination. Most items have tongs or scoops but they roll flour burritos by hand and then stick their hands right in the bins of cheese without changing gloves. I ordered here with family and had to give my food to someone else because seeing them prep other items after my bowl was made, I realized I would be sick.
