The staff at this Chili’s really cares about getting it right! I mentioned a food allergy when ordering, and not only did the waitress listen, but she and the manager both oversaw my food to ensure that it was prepared safely for me. While that meant a delay in receiving my food, it also meant that I went home without getting sick and the manager took the time to come to our table to personally explain the delay. The food was fantastic!!! It really does count to have staff that cares!

This is a chain restaurant with a GF menu that has some options. I had the 1976 chili tacos. The staff wasn’t too knowledgeable but they were accommodating to my request of glove change. I did not get sick which was nice since I was on vacation.

Chilis is one of our go to places to eat! I usually get either the loaded baked potato soup, the margarita chicken without the tortilla chips, or the chicken fajitas with corn tortillas. I’ve also gotten their steak with a loaded baked potato, which is a hit or miss. I haven’t gotten sick yet!

I’m celiac and I work there. From personal experience at this location, there are a few gluten free options. Please let your server know if you have an allergy, since I’ve started working there the FOH and HOH have improved their ways to help decrease the possibility for cross contamination. For example marking the dish as ALLERGIC in the POS, informing cooks about the allergy, changing gloves, grabbing fresh ingredients from the back for items in shared spaces, changing out utensils, changing gloves to assemble the dish on the QA line. I could never guarantee someone with a food allergy will have a truly gluten free experience. But the staff is really trying to understand what celiacs disease is.

As far as food options the following have been safe for me to eat (have eaten)

Sides: Street Corn, Corn on the cob (w/out butter), broccoli, black beans, mandarin oranges, mashed potatoes

Appetizers: salsa, guacamole, ranch. I wouldn’t recommend getting the chips because there are only shared fryers, but seriously nobody would blame you for bringing your own bag if you have a good allergy.

Main Course: 6 oz 10 oz and Ribeye Steaks, burgers without buns (no lettuce wrap but there’s shredded lettuce) and Ribs. *the grill is a dedicated work station, there are no gluten containing ingredients that go on the grill top that I’m aware of* I personally have not tried the fajita chicken/steak/shrimp because I’m wary about the marinade ingredients. Tacos can be done gluten free with corn tortillas and modifying how shrimp are prepared. If you get corn tortillas for anything tell your server to not put the tortillas on the press because it’s a shared press with flour tortillas or ask if they can be wrapped in foil before being pressed. I wouldn’t recommend ANY salad because because of cross contamination.

Drinks: full bar so there’s Tito’s!! Also the presidente margarita is gluten free but please tell your bartender! I will give an alcohol update when I know more. 🙂

To anyone who is celiac/gluten sensitive trying to eat out at Chili’s St. George I hope this helps!

This was fine. My server was not super knowledgeable; however, Chili’s has a helpful allergen menu available online that outlines its dishes made without gluten containing ingredients AS WELL AS which items are prepared on shared equipment. I was able to explain what I needed to the server and he confirmed that the corporate statement matched how they were preparing food in their kitchen.

Obviously not my first choice, but I visit El Centro often, and this is one of my better experiences.

This place was a bit tricky. I googled the menu and found that skinny options to be gf but pretty sure cross contamination would occur. I felt okay- but probably not the best place for us with celiac.
