Okay let me start by saying I’ve been to chuy’s before at other locations but after this I will not be returning. When I asked for a gluten free options they gave me a menu which was great. It was quite limited (no meat, no rice, no sauce) but I went with it.

When my plate came the enchiladas I ordered had both rice and sauce on them which the gf menu said were NOT gf. I asked the waitress to double check and she reassured me it was okay.

I ended up sick and with gluten rash shortly after eating. I then talked to another friend who is Celiac and said she had issues at a separate location as well.

Upside- my friends who are not celiac said their food was great.

I felt so taken care of at this location. My waitress didn’t know a lot about the gluten free options so she got a manager to come by and chat with me. He explained all of options I had and even offered for the kitchen crew to clean their work station before cooking my enchiladas. The queso and Jalapeño ranch sauce are not gluten free, but the chips are. My enchilada meal was delicious!

The waitress had the manager come out and talk to me about what they could offer GF. He did tell me that they did not have a dedicated fryer for the chips, but had some baked for me so that I could safely enjoy them too. He also brought out some fresh baked tortillas that were GF & delicious. He did a great job going over what was safe and was not. I felt safe eating here & will definitely be back again!

Fantastic experience at Chuy’s. The manager and majority of the staff were very knowledgeable on what items are gluten free items! Their chips are made in a dedicated fryer. And corn tortillas are gluten free. Staff was so kind to let me know all the gluten free sauces that were options. Their fajita meat is not gluten free. I had the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom enchiladas and they were delicious. No cross contamination and I feel great after my meal. I’m making Chuy’s my permanent Mexican food spot in OKC!

Even though they have a GF menu, they will not guarantee it will actually be GF. All their meat proteins have gluten - from the marinade. The chips are not GF either. Very disappointing.

The GM was extremely knowledgeable about the processes and cross contamination! Chips at this location are celiac safe, boom boom sauce, and jalapeno ranch as well!

Symptomatic Celiac

A classic Tex Mex chain so you can expect the quality to be subpar. The manager was very accommodating and confirmed they had a dedicated fryer for only corn. However, they did have to check on a lot with the previous manager to ensure GF items. I got the chicken flautas with roasted chicken. While my typical reaction of ataxia did not kick in, I did leave feeling somewhat symptomatic: light headed, hot/cold flashes, weak on my feet etc. I think I may have been exposed in some capacity.

Be aware: marinated meat is cooked in beer, queso has gluten, Mexican rice is fried in gluten fryer, and chips are cross contaminated.

If you have celiac DONT DO IT! Let me be a cautionary tale to those with any kind of gluten sensitivity. I have celiac and am currently in the worst pain of my life from eating here.
