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.

Not a great experience. No gluten free fries, wings, buns, or tortilla chips. In their website they claim they are gluten friendly. The only things I could have were salads, some sides (corn, potatoes) and ribs.

I’ve been coming to this location for years. I almost always get the chipotle chicken fresh mex bowl. Switched it up with ribs last night and the BBQ sauce was really good!

The waitress knew nothing about gf. She went back into the kitchen and came back to tell me I only had two options. I “googled it” and they have an online gf menu that is much more extensive.

The chef came out and spoke to me about the gluten free options and how sensitive my cross contamination issue was. He came out and checked to make sure everything went smooth. Very impressed, not much things you can have that don’t have cross contamination though.
