Very few gluten-free options. They marinate the fajita meat in beer. The roasted chicken is gluten-free, but I found it very dry. Not my first choice for gluten-free tex-mex!

Just found out our girls have celiacs in March of 2021.

We have had the bean and cheese nachos with shredded chicken and have had ZERO issues with this.

We of course make sure they change gloves though.

But just last weekend, we were at a wedding and were informed by the Chuys Catering team that Gluten Free fajitas are an option as well! They take a little longer to bring out but it can be done! And our girls ate that at the wedding and had NO issues!

Queso is a no go though folks

And the Tyler team of managers are awesome! One went and prepared some fresh corn tortillas on a separate grill to avoid cross contamination.

Chuys has been great for us!

If you’re celiac, you can eat very few food in this restaurant. We had Tacos without meat there. They do have a gluten free menu but they cannot avoid cross-contamination. Comparing the gluten-free menu to their normal menu, we think they could have made much more food gluten-free than what they currently have. It seems that some of their food (like all the meat and sauces) are Packaged food, which contains gluten so they cannot substitute anything.

They've obviously changed their menu since the last reviewer was in. The chips cannot be GF and basically you can get a vegetarian taco or vegan taco/enchilada plate. No sauces or rice and food is prepared in a common area so cross contamination is a risk

The manager came out to help me with what to eat, he told me that the meat is marinated in beer(which is made with wheat), the rice and beans were gluten free, and that they can salt and pepper my meat for me instead if making it the regular way,l. They had 5 gluten free sauces, I ordered a enchilada and they made it with a corn tortilla(they usually don't) it was good, did it contain gluten, idk they said no. Was it cross contaminated, idk I have no symptoms and fell upon celiac accidentally.

Super poor GF menu choice although they do have a GF menu. No meat options. No chips. My son was served his Gf quesadilla on corn tortillas on top of fries despite being told no fries. They remade it but definitely wouldn’t ever come back or recommend this restaurant for GF or celiacs.

Husband is probably in remission of celiac so take it with a grain of salt. So far we have had no bad experience here since the manager posted on FB. They will come and warn you which is understandable, I appreciate it. It really depends on the day on who is comfortable and not comfortable.

The manager, Shawn, is the first manager that has come out to speak with me directly since being diagnosed. He basically said there isn't anything that one with celiac can eat here (even the rice has gluten in it). BUT they do have a gluten free menu which is just basically items that can be modified. He asked what I needed to have in order to be safe, and I asked for them to change their gloves and clean the work area. He was even going to ensure the food was going to be cooked on top of foil. My go to Mexican food were cheese enchiladas before my diagnosis and this is the first time I'm going to be able to enjoy my favorites. Truly appreciate this place! He said that they could even do chicken fajitas (as long as it's chicken that isn't marinated) and they could do it on the flat top (which would take longer).
