Be careful here. The owner thinks he knows all there is to know about cooking GF but he doesn't. He seems like a nice guy but he needs to do some research on how to prepare GF food before calling is restaurant GF. If you are really sensitive avoid this place.
Delicious craft cocktails. No dedicated gf menu but a lot of selections. Very good food. The only thing I didn't like was how they wouldn't substitute side dishes. I understand that policy for regular diners but I feel like that policy should be waived for people with allergies as I was unable to eat the side that came with my meal. They charged me an additional $8 for a small side of something I could eat instead of substituting.
They don't have gluten free options listed on the menu but they cook their eggs and hash browns in separate areas of the kitchen from the gluten items, they have corn tortillas and gluten free bread and are happy to modify dishes to make them gluten free.
It REALY, REALLY, REALLY (did I say really) saddens me to write this review, this place is very cool, the staff durning my visit was extremely friendly and the food tasted wonderful.... BUT, if you have Celiac with sensitivity to cross contamination then Torchy's isn't for you unfortunately. It's really sad that there are so few places such as this business that cannot provide safe options for people with Celiac without causing serious negative health side effects. If you're gluten free because of a lifestyle choice then this is a wonderful option. Sorry for the negative review, I was truly hopeful.
I asked on the phone when ordering if they could use fresh cheese and sauce (from a fresh container) I was told yes. I ordered 1 pepperoni and 1 sausage gluten free pizza. I specifically asked if the toppings were GF and was told yes. Them ordered a salad with GF dressing. I told them I would take what ever was GF. When I got there to pick up I was given a salad with no dressing and told no GF dressing. Then I was told (after handing me the pizza) the pepperoni and sausage were not gluten free. The owner told me that anything with binding was not GF and that there was no such thing as GF sausage and pepperoni. She was not very pleasant. I explained that if would have known that while ordering I would have not ordered. WILL NOT TRY AGAIN! Would like to give 0 stars!
Not even remotely celiac safe. But we really appreciated their honesty. The food looked amazing and I'm sure it tastes great if you are just looking for gluten free food and are not concerned with cross contamination.
