Chuy’s does NOT have a gf menu. From information online, they marinate their meat in beer, so no meat is GF. They also cook everything in the same fryer if you are really sensitive. Pretty disappointing for Mexican food since most of the time it is GF.

Gluten “Sensitive” not free menu states “*not guaranteed*” in huge handwritten permanent marker. I asked a few questions and the staff wasn’t confident in gluten free.

Really hard to avoid cross contamination at Chuy's. Their best dishes cannot be made GF.

Wish I would have read the reviews before eating off the gluten free menu. I would not eat here if you are gluten sensitive or celiac. I have been sick for two days now food was amazing but not worth it.

Chuy's is a great place. It's not only one of the best restaurant choices at Opry Mills. It has some of the best foods (not just for those who do not suffer with gluten intolerance). One big tip is to ask for the gluten/dairy free menu. Even more importantly ask for the manager.

I was able to have a good Mexican restaurant experience. They said their chips are currently cooked in a dedicated fryer, and they do have a separate gluten-free menu.

They make their corn tortillas on the same surface as their flour tortillas. Therefore is not gluten free/safe for Celiacs. Their chicken fajita seasoning contains wheat. But their roasted chicken does not. The table tortilla chips were not GF.

With the very limited menu, I don’t recommend this restaurant for anyone who is remotely gluten sensitive.

Ended up with a salad.

When I told them I had celiac, they gave me a gluten free menu, but informed me that they can’t promise no cross contamination. I talked to the manager, and she told me they could clean the cooking surface for my food. I got a chicken enchilada, and it was great! The staff was very helpful in making sure my food was gluten free. However, there aren’t many options for gluten free food. Also, the chips they bring out are not gluten free, since there is cross contamination for the fryer.

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!
