When I told them I needed GF, they brought out a separate menu. The waiter was very nice and patient and the food was great. They had true corn tortillas that were nice and soft. I had chicken fajitas and they were fantastic. My only complaint is there is no pricing on the GF menu, and it's somewhat complicated to read.
Asked for the gf menu when we walked in. They have a whole notebook with different menus for a wide variety of allergens, updated with menu changes every two months. It was well-organized. The restaurant itself was clean, with a good atmosphere. We went in just after the lunch rush on a weekday. We ate at RoTB many times prior to finding out my son and I had gluten issues. The food is more Southwest/Tex-Mex than traditional Mexican. Lots of bright, spicy flavors and fresh items. I got the Mango Chicken Salad, and my son had the BBQ-Chipotle Salmon. Both were very good.
They did have a gluten free menu, however it was very confusing to make sense of (ex. One item said you can have ____ without beans, but then on the safe side items it says you can have beans). The waitress we had had no idea about gluten free eating and made a lot of assumptions that would have made me sick had I not corrected her. When I got my food it didn't taste good. The food tastes very "pre-made" and "artificial" to me. Did not enjoy it. Had mad heartburn all night. Would not go back.
They make their own flour tortillas daily. The whole kitchen is contaminated. The GF menu is confusing; tells you you can't have the sides, then lists the sides that are part of the dish on a different part of the menu. I and my son both had major reactions after eating there.
We have been to this location many times with consistent results; excellent choices for gluten free food, knowledgable servers and supportive management staff. I am extremely gluten intolerant and no problems here. Good selections on menu. Would recommend any time.
Server was very informative on gluten free options
I have been to the On the Border on 41st in Tulsa many times. I usually don't order from gf menu. Don't know that I've ever mentioned my food has to be gf. As long as I order enchiladas, tacos, or fajitas, I have no problem. The staff has always been courteous and quick to fill my order. The food has always been delicious. I love going here.
Have a gluten free menu but when asked if they have a different cooking surface for my meal I was told it was cooked on the same grill as all of the other food. Total food contamination. Companies really need to understand what offering something gluten free entails.
Not really gluten free. The have a big, bulky Allergen menu binder they will hunt up for you to search through. Not easy or convenient,, and I don't think the staff has a clue about gluten or cross contamination. I used to think the food was good before I had to deal with Celiac, but both times I've eaten there since I had to go gluten free they've glutened me pretty badly. Try Anita's instead. Much better options on the menu and the staff seems more accommodating even though they don't have a gluten free menu.
Server was very knowledgable and helpful with suggesting GF items on the menu. GF menu is nice, but I always feel better with a server looking out for us. Good variety. Corn chips have a dedicated fryer, so they are safe! Glad we found a Mexican restaurant we can go to now.
I just finished my lunch today for dinner and was still disappointed! We went there due to my parents intolerance for gluten. All they found was a regular menu with special menu items lIsted as not gluten free . You know taco salad without the shell! OLA! BTW Even my meal was not good. Steak in my meal was full of fat. Vey disappointed!
We had a great experience and they were great with my daughters gluten allergy our food was fresh and great our server was a young kid who went for help when we told him about our daughters allergy instead of playing it off like he knew what he was doing ! We will def eat here again. As for the red robin across the way we wont be going to that one be cautious when you go to that red robin !
Very confusing gf menu because almost every corn product is deep fried and marinades have soy sauce (eg, no hard taco shells to be found, no enchiladas either). Better to try Abuelos if there is one near.
Service was pretty disappointing. She really didn't seem to care much about us. The gluten free menu was basically a list with names of dishes on it, so I was having to go back and forth between the list and the actual menu to see what my options were. The chicken I ordered had good flavor, but had tendons in it and was tough to eat. I probably won't go back.
Sadly this food chain has reduced it's GF menu options when they made general menu changes. It's now very difficult to get a full meal here. If they would get a dedicated fryer, their menu would expand significantly! We use to get fajitas and now, you can only get the meat, not the veggies due to the new seasoning mix. It's a chain restaurant so they are subject to corporate policy and changes, but they seem to be going in the wrong direction here. Use to be a go to, now, I avoid.
The Queso Chicken is the greatest gluten free item!
manager and service manager both came by to make sure we got the right stuff, and suggested soft corn tacos. seemed very knowledgeable. have a separate fryer to keep corn chips safe.
Their GF menu is very limited. And the knowledge of the staff and management at this location appeared limited too. It took forever for the manager to try to figure out if one of the sauces was safe, and I never even got a straight answer, so I had to forego it. I had fish tacos, which were dry (because of no sauce!) and not that great. My husband had a chimichanga (not GF), which he said was kind of mushy and not very good at all. And the biggest bummer is that the tortilla chips are *not* GF. We won't be going back to this place.
