They don't readily change their gloves and touch all kinds of other orders when preparing yours. T While they offer gluten free options, the cross contamination is everywhere.

Staff was not knowledgeable; said the only thing that was gluten free was whatever was listed on their menu. It was a crunchy taco and their sauces and that’s it. Walked out because I didn’t trust them to get it right.

The girl was new who made my food but she didn’t change her gloves. They had a long list of what’s gluten free but I felt kinda gross afterwards.

Staff was very knowledgeable, they had a gluten-free menu worksheet right at the assembly station that the server pulled down and kept beside him while he assembled the taco bowl we ordered so he could reference it item-by-item. Staff cleaned thoroughly and changed gloves before assembling.

When we told them my daughter had a gluten allergy they did NOT change their gloves. But overall the food was ok.

It was easy enough to Google the allergy guide, but the employees had no idea what gluten free even meant.

The food is good and their menus have the little gf symbol by all the safe stuff so you don’t have to ask about ingredient which is nice. Utensils are used across orders so contamination does occur.

They're not really prepared for this. My wife had to give them very strict instructions. At the end, they put my (gluten-filled) cookies on her tray.

They have a gluten free menu right at the beginning of the ordering area which is great. The workers seemed clueless. I asked the girl to change gloves, which she did as she rolled her eyes. Then she passed our bowl off to the next person without me realizing it and the second person had NOT changed her gloves. I explained the problem and the first girl grabbed stuff and remade our order without any words- obviously irritated. It is a shame that a place that offers so many choices does not have better understanding of the gluten free necessity for some people.

They have gluten free, but for some reason I always feel like I got ahold of gluten afterwards. :(

Similar to Chipotle, but with more choices. When told we were gluten free, they got a separate tray and clean gloves to make our food. Their sauces and queso are delicious as well!! :)

like Chipotle but not so good. more choices of sauce, but there isn't any sign the food is of any particular quality. a little stingier on the guacomole. still, we liked this better than the Eat and Go across the street that didn't have enough choices for us.

I miss Hot Heads 😢 Please come to Colorado!!! Lol They're very transparent with what's gluten free and what's not. Ask them to change gloves. Never showed a reaction but cross contamination is possible.

All of their ingredients are just straight, unseasoned, and bland, sadly. Nice heat levels, though.

Hit or miss. They will change gloves if you request. You can get a bowl or tacos. Pork or veggie. Chance of cross contamination is high.

The staff doesn't know GF too well. The seasoning on the chicken isn't GF. However, there are a lot of options. The chips are GF

They know which ingredients has gluten and which do not, but have no clue why I asked them to change gloves. Since it was the lunch rush, I dropped the issue and just ate my contaminated food.

This is my go to place to get gluten as well as an allergy free meal. All allergens are listed on the website. There is also a reward card to earn free food. Staff has always been friendly and helpful.

Talked with a manager who was very friendly however he was not knowledgeable about gluten free and was not very convincing about cross contamination. The more questions I asked the more he admitted that there is a chance for spatulas and spoons to touch wheat tortillas and then going back into the dish. Very disappointing but expected from a chain like that. Would not recommend celiacs to dine there!

Good bowls. Not my first choice for this type of food (Chipotle's GF menu wins on flavor and freshness), but location is convenient and I've never had a reaction.

We eat at Hot Head often with my daughter who's a Celiac. She has never had any issues after eating and the staff is always very accommodating. I always order her meal first and have them change gloves. Staff seems knowledgeable about gluten.
