Moe's Southwest Grill

I would have to say that Moe's is my favorite place to take my daughter for eating out. Yes, they have a lot of cheese products (queso, cheese, sourcream, etc). But I take some reassurance that as I watch my daughter's burrito being made right in front of me that no cross-contamination has occured. We normally get her the Mr. Moo Cow Burrito without the cheese and then my husband eats the cookie for her. For their official allergen guide, click here.

They don't have Moe's near me, but I hear good things about it for food allergies. I posted it recently on my godairyfree website. It is always great to have some "safe" options :)

How do you verify that no cross-contamination is taking place? Typically these places use one pair of gloves for the process so contamination is going to happen. When we have done similar things at a pizza place, we made them use everything brand new and cover the work area. It's a pain for everyone but it's the best way to keep my daughter safe and as normal as possible.

Three-Pts- Good point. At the Moe's that I visit, the staff puts on a new set of gloves with every order. We have them make my daughter's burrito first. All of the ingredients that she eats (beans, chicken, rice, tortilla) are on one counter away from the 2nd conter that contains items like cheese.

I just logged onto Moe's to take a look at their allergen menu. We had visited one while on vacation last summer and I recently found one near us. I was hoping I could take my dairy and egg allergic daughter there! So glad I found your blog!
