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

I eat here almost once a week. It is one of the few places I can eat without getting sick.

Staff had no idea what was gluten free and chuckled at me when I asked. Not helpful at all!

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. :(

hot head is completely gluten free! that is if you don't get tortillas, and they are delicious! (:

Staff was rude when I told them about my allergy and didn't accommodate very well.

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.

Has gf menu. Some employees are aware of minimizing crisis contamination so are not but at less you can see what they are making and stop them before they contaminate the food

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.

Love this place. GF items are clearly marked with allergen list. Have never gotten sick.

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 made sure I had the list of gluten free food. They were very careful in preparing my meal. It was very good!

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

I thought it was very tasty food, and was very pleased with how helpful the staff was. They double checked the chips and taco shells and many other things on the list for me.

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.

The employees changed their gloves and avoided cross contamination well. The food itself was good, similar to chipotle.

All Hot Heads states they have a gf menu, but I have always had problems after eating here. Sorry, Hot Heads!

My wife has celiac and microscopic colitis. She is not super sensitive to cross contamination. We have enjoyed eating here many times without a single issue.

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.

Tried it tonight. Was not very good in my opinion just taste wise. Would much rather go to chipotle or qdoba.

It's great but all of the meat is gluten free EXCEPT for the chicken. Big bummer there!! :(
