Waitress never had anyone ask for gluten and dairy free items on the menu. But got answers To all my questions. They will make baked corn chips gluten free. Not very tasty. Fajita was made gluten free and the chicken was tender.

They now have a clear gluten free Menu - I have eaten here and not got glutened on either of the two occasions I ate here. I had enchiladas, Hard Corn Tacos and Tamales - which I hadn’t risked in years. I would advise being vigilant though, as on one occasion my plate came with a side that according to the menu had gluten in - so I sent it back. They worked hard to include me in all choices and prepared Fresh complimentary GF tortilla chips and salsa - see photos. Also had the GF Flan for a 🍮 dessert 🎉

Notes


Chevys has discontinued their gluten free menu due to the fact that they cannot guarantee that every restaurant is able to prevent cross-contamination.

They do not have a gf menu but when i asked the host he told us to tell the waiter. Then a couple of minutes after we sat (before the waiter came), the manager came over and went over the options (most of their meats are marinated in soy sauce, but they would cook just abt any meat,un-marinated, with salt and pepper). And then baked tortillas came! We forgot to ask abt enchiladas and while the waiter didn't know, he went back and asked (they could modify them). Overall, everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant. And the flan is gf!!

Being gluten-free and dairy-free, it's hard for me to find a good spot. The manager came over and told me they would bake corn tortillas so there would be no cross-contamination, and he was kind enough to recommend several dishes. I got the fish tacos without the chipotle sauce (had dairy), with a side of black beans and mango salsa. It was to die for! So good and fresh. The salsa was amazing, as well.

Wait staff had to keep asking manager about gluten free. Chips are in a shared fryer and not gluten free. They can sub corn tortillas for flour in most cases. GF menu available in PDF online, but no paper copies in the restaurant. Not celiac safe.

I called tonight for carry out and asked for gluten free chips with the guacamole. I think they used to fry the chips in a different fryer. They told me they no longer accommodate gluten free. Just wanted to post this as a warning to others. They said it is too risky and they don’t want to make anyone sick, I appreciate that, but their chips were my favorite.

They can no longer inform customers about what is gluten free due to legal reasons. Their new menu says nothing about what is gluten free. Our waitress told us that everything is “eat at your own risk” because they can’t share how they handle cross contamination or tell customers about what can and cannot be made gf. She told me that the only thing she can say is gf are the beans.

We talked to the manager when we walked in and asked him questions. He seemed very knowledgeable. Most fillings are gluten free. They can substitute corn tortillas for flour but if you want a burrito on a corn tortilla, ask to have it made on a separate, clean cutting board. The fryer is not gluten free for those sensitive or celiacs so no chips but the salsa is gluten free though spicy. He specifically mentioned the fajitas could be made gluten free so that's what I ordered. We saw him chat with the server so our server also seemed aware and told us to avoid the farmer's market enchiladas as the sauce is not gluten free and the filing has a little of the sauce in it.

I would only say this is celiac friendly if the manager on duty seems knowledgeable so before you order talk with the manager. The manager on the day we came said he would personally supervise it so I felt more comfortable.

Not a good place for Celiacs. When I asked for a GF menu, the manager who came over to ask me what celiac disease was. She said they no longer have a gluten free menu because “the company wants to save money.” They no longer have a shared fryer she said, but seemed unsure about where gluten could be found. I had symptoms afterwards so I will probably not go back.
