I work downtown, at Heinz Hall (1 block from the Benedum)! There is a Qdoba around the corner where the manager is VERY celiac-savvy--his wife has celiac! Practically everything there is safe, as long as you avoid the tortillas and a couple of other things, and he knows to change gloves, use a clean work surface, etc.

Their "Naked Burritos" are AMAZING.





Qdoba is a lifesaver. I think I end up there at least once a week when I'm out of the house for 13 hours and am too disorganized to bring any food with me. If only I could remember to keep gluten-free soy sauce with me, I could mix it up with some sushi!

A few years ago when my digestive issues were so severe that I finally went to the gastro, one of the resident's first questions was about my heritage. (University of Pittsburgh Physicians/ teaching and reseach facilitiy) She said that they find most people with the disease are descended from Northern Europe and also Italy. Being in Pittsburgh, you find many people of Italian, German, Polish, and Slovakian descent. . .and it's not extremely rare to find someone here who restricts their gluten intake.

I myself am mostly German, (Southern) Italian, and Czech/Slovak.
