I had fajitas from here at a catered event. After eating the rice, beef, chicken, onions, lettuce, cheese, and salsa I had no reaction. So, what one would expect from a Mexican-type chain restaurant. I can't vouch for any of the other items.

Everything except the tortillas are Gluten free. I had a steak bowl with Steak, beans, rice and veggies. Added some yummy queso for my chips. Staff knowledgeable and more than accommodating with changing gloves and utensils.

Although similar in offerings as Chipotle- Moe’s does not accommodate for those with a Gluten Allergy. There is cross contamination with all those food, although they don’t hide it and apologize when they tell you they cannot guarantee anything is free of gluten.

They did a great job. They changed gloves and gave us containers with lids and they were very careful. We only had two choices a bowl or a salad.

I’ve been to this Moe’s a couple times with no issue. I stopped in on the 4th of July and asked the person to please change their gloves before making my food because I have celiac. The employee told me they didn’t know what celiac was (I tried to explain it, they didn’t take the time to listen) and insisted the gloves were new and clean but as I had not seen them change the gloves, I said it did not feel safe. In the end, after a minute or so of arguing, the employee refused to change their gloves or prepare my food at all, so I was left waiting until someone else was available to prepare it and held up the line. I did not appreciate how my illness was not being taken seriously and it was very unprofessional. The person who did make my food was nice though and I didn’t get cross-contaminated.

I went in and told the server I needed gluten free. (I have occasionally eaten at other locations.). I truly got the “deer in the headlights” look. He asked someone else who shrugged so I said I was going to go somewhere that I could be assured of eating safely. That was the end of the conversation....he did not even reply.

This restaurant is not a good option for those with celiac disease or problems with gluten. While still there, I ended up sick and in the bathroom immediately after eating. Avoid at all costs if you cannot have gluten!!

all the tacos, even the corn ones, are not a safe choice because they are all fried in the same fryer. you can get a salad or a bowl and add any topping. the meat, salsas, veggies and other toppings are all gluten free.

I used to love eating at Moe’s, but after my Celiac diagnosis I was afraid to try it out again. I finally decided to give Moe’s another try and I was pleasantly surprised. Moe’s has an allergen guide posted at the front, and a notice stating that while their corn chips and tortillas are gluten free, they are prepared in the same area as flour tortillas, and therefore they do not recommend celiac’s eat them. I asked the employee to change her gloves and make my food prior to my fiancé’s, who I knew would be ordering gluten.

I ordered a bowl with all my favorite toppings, went home and used the bowl to make my own little tacos with my gluten free tortillas. It’s now the next day and I have no symptoms of gluten exposure, and I’m looking forward to having my leftovers for lunch.

I notified the servers who prepared my meal that I am gluten intolerant.

I requested that they change their gloves before preparing my food, & they all did as I requested without complaining or giving me a weird look.

You are able to watch them prepare your food.

I definitely will be back to this location simply because they took the time to make sure I did become I'll from cross contamination.

The food was delicious ❤

The staff was unaware of gluten free options and the quinoa is no longer on the menu. So outside of a salad there aren’t any other gluten free options. And so my biggest concern would be cross contamination. I didn’t get sick, but I probably won’t go back.

The Staff was knowledgeable and change gloves twice while getting my stuff. They knew how to tell me what was gluten free and what was not. The only problem was keeping the ingredients in the bar completely separated from each other. I’m celiac and did not have any issues. Website says that the avocado cream dressing is gluten free but I did not try it.

This Moe’s was the best one I have ever been to. When I told them about my gluten sensitivities, they wrote down my order and went to the back to use fresh ingredients, and even offered to cook new meat so I wouldn’t have any cross-contamination. Very friendly, very accommodating. Highly recommend this branch of Moe’s.Menu is not gluten free specifically, but all ingredients are listed with the allergy information

Our family loves Moe’s, and our local Moe’s was great. This location, however, was awful. They huffed and puffed and were visibly agitated that I asked for new, untouched meat and vegetables to avoid cross contamination for my Celiac daughter (our location does this happily for us). They argued that they are very careful and that there isn’t contamination - as I watched them make someone else’s flour burrito and the spoon touched the tortilla more than once. My daughter was humiliated as they made her feel like a nuisance. Would never recommend this location to someone needing gluten free options - and wouldn’t recommend it ever due to its poor customer service.

Terrible attitude when asked to change gloves and use caution. Ordered a rice bowl with chicken. Even after asking them to be careful, and explaining that I have Celiac, they stacked my bowl on the chips that use a shared fryer! I became extremely sick within 45 minutes. Vomiting and diarrhea. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!

I have been to several Moe’s locations. This is by far the worst experience I have had. The girl had to throw my order out 4 times before getting it right. They changed gloves, then touched gluten, start over again / tried to give me flour tortillas - start over again. Awful experience and the food was gross. Will not be returning to this location again!

I’ve eaten here several times since I was diagnosed (rice bowls) and most have been fine, but this last time I got sick. I ordered from uber eats so I wasn’t there to see anyone prep my food but I made sure to note celiac and wheat allergy in all caps for the order. That was probably my mistake, but either way it was contaminated somehow and it was not fun or enjoyable afterwards. The last few times I’ve been in it seems like it’s only high school kids, even the manager looked like they were in high school which was a little concerning because I do want to make sure food sensitivities/allergies are taken seriously.

I was excited to eat here thinking I would have a lot of options..sadly this was not the case. When I asked the server to change her gloves for an allergy, thankfully she was familiar with Celiacs asked me if I knew that the corn shells and chips are fried in the same oil as the flour tortillas. She made the suggestion to order “Earmuffs”, which is rice as the base with toppings. There is still the major risk of cross contamination but that is a given since there is gluten everywhere.

After I walked in and informed the staff that I had celiac disease and that I needed it to be gluten free, she immediately shoved a allergen list and said “I’d be better off reading this” so I could order because she had no idea what was good for me to eat. I should have left but I was assured by a fellow celiac that moe’s was okay to eat. I then ordered a burrito bowl with only listed the gluten free ingredients and within an hour after eating it I got sick. Never going again!

Can't have the chips since they are fried with the flour bowls. Mostly everything else is safe, but check on new items (seasoning) and sauces.
