The gluten free menu was sparse and did contain mostly meatless menu items, but the grilled shrimp rellenos were amazing. While gluten is merely an intolerance issue for me, I did notice that they are fairly forthcoming about possible cross contamination and request that you inform them of the severity of any/all food allergies.

I ate at Chuy's last night and was very disappointed. All their meat is filled with gluten so vegetarian fare is all you can have. Unless you eat shrimp which I do but not at many restaurants. Gluten free menu is small and not appealing at all. I had the veggie enchiladas and still had a reaction from cross contamination. I can't even give this place one star! Well, you can't post a review without at least one star so one star it gets.

The manager came out, was very knowledgeable, and was able to suggest and fix things not on the regular gluten free menu. Ask for the baked chips and 'boom-boom' sauce. Light and delicious. Wait staff was enthusiastic about accommodating and modifying for gf, too. A one-of-a-kind Tex-Mex restaurant where all the food is made from scratch. Watch one of the staff make tortillas right in front of the kitchen.

The kitchen manager Miguel is always amazing. Their enchiladas and chips are gf. Unfortunately their rice has a cross contamination risk and all fajita meat is marinated in beer. However, they can make a plain chicken breast for fajitas if requested.

When I asked about a gluten-free menu the manager , Brent, came to our table. He was very knowledgeable of gf issues and assured me that the folks in the kitchen are also. There are several delicious gf options. Ask questions and choose carefully.

Were pretty knowledgeable. They helped me find something gluten free I could eat.

I had the boom boom chicken with rancherito sauce. Tortillas were corn and all the sauces are gluten free. Good food.

They are very aware that cross contamination is a possibility on their entire menu except one salad.

I ordered the one salad they told me would not have risk of being cross contaminated. It was delicious! I would recommend it to someone who wasn’t gluten free because it was so good!

I should have done my research beforehand. The waiter checked on the chips, queso and taco salad minus the shell and told me they were safe to eat. I was already feeling sick before my meal arrived. After eating at the restaurant I called to talk to a manager and learned that chips are fried with all the other gluten-containing items and flour is put in almost everything they make including the meats and queso. Very disappointed and will not be returning here.

Manager Judith was amazing for my celiac teen. Made fresh baked chips, fresh queso with no roux just for her, gave her a beautiful set up to make her own nachos (what she wanted) that was safe.

As soon as I asked for GF options the waitress brought me corn tortillas since I couldn’t eat the chips and let us know that they don’t have a separate menu but they are trained on it and have a list of modifications they keep in the back. She asked what I wanted and helped me make the adjustments needed to make it GF

I let the waitress know as soon as i got there that I needed to know their GF options, and it is their procedure to send the manager to talk to you about it. The manager specifically asked why I needed GF- when i told her I was celiac, she knew exactly what to tell me was off limits, was very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, and told me what was at risk. She baked me a separate batch of chips, and told me to order without rice bc the rice was at risk for cross-contamination. I ordered the stacked enchiladas with no rice- the corn tortillas, roasted chicken, tomatillo sauce and refried beans are all GF. It was very easy to order after speaking to the manager.

You don’t have a GF menu if you can’t offer a meal! Most frustrating experience when you are excluded from almost every item in the place. reminds me of how fast food restaurants list their condiments as GF. That does not mean you have a GF menu. Don’t waste your time.

Talk to the manager before you order. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Chips were baked vs. fried and found out all meat can be made gluten free. Manager worked with me to make a custom meal that met all my dietary needs.

The managers are always very willing to help, so don’t hesitate to ask! They need to clean the tortilla hot top before making safe tortillas. The kitchen doesn’t have dedicated space, but they are super nice and willing to accommodate! The ranchero sauce is probably the safest for enchiladas. Make sure to ask for pulled chicken or ground sirloin.

Only gluten free options are oven roasted chicken and possibly a salad. All items are cooked on the same grill and in same oil or prepared on same surfaces, definitely cross contamination.. Waitress was not knowledgeable but manager was but tried to convince our table that sometimes cross contamination can be an issue but in most cases not..

No GF menu. Warms corn tortillas and flour ones on same surface so can’t even have corn. Chicken is marinated in beer. Could easily offer enchiladas, corn tacos, and Mexi salads gluten free (with small dedicated prep area and grilling non marinated chicken and offering GF ranch dressing) but chain apparently doesn’t want our business or the family members we take with us to places that offer safe options.

If you ask to see the manager when placing your order they will give you the MOON! If asked they will bake the chips. The ground beef is gluten free but the steak fajitas are not. Tacos can be made with soft corn tortillas. Cheese dip has gluten in it .. we had a great experience but always deal with the public

I wish I could give this restaurant a bunch of stars because the manager and waiter were extremely knowledgeable and careful by telling us there was not anything safe for a celiac On the menu even the corn tortillas since they are made in the same fryer as gluten. We brought my 4 year old son’s food with us so it was totally fine, but then the manager brought out safely prepared chicken breast tenders (with foil on the grill) with gluten free ketchup on the house, which he didn’t eat since he was already full, so I can’t speak to CC, but I felt safe offering it to my son due to their knowledge about cross contamination.

Manager explained what I could have so I ordered exactly as she explained: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom enchiladas with refried beans and no rice. Tested with my Nima Sensor and it tested positive for gluten. The manager was kind and took the meal off the ticket. They did bring me baked tortilla chips and salsa but I did not test them for gluten.

Update: This restaurant is very dangerous for a celiac. All meats are marinated in beer. The corn tortillas are made on the same tortilla press as the flour tortillas. Only a couple of the sauces are safe. Chips and queso is not safe. I got extremely sick after eating here the 2nd time. I will not be back.

Original review: Our waiter was unsure what was safe so he had the manager come over to talk to me. She was knowledgeable and explained what I could eat. You have to be very careful here and make sure they know if you have celiac. They prepared me my own chips and had to clean the tortilla maker and make me corn tortillas. I had chicken enchiladas with boom boom sauce. They were delicious. Only a few of the sauces are gluten free so make sure to ask. The queso is not gluten free. They have to prepare all of the meats without any seasoning to make it gluten free also. My food was good and I felt fine afterwards. Just be careful.

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.

Just diagnosed with severe Celiac disease, (still in denial), and this place was a no go for me. From what I've read, if the staff and manager is knowledgeable, they should be able to come up with something, but the chips share the fryer and the corn tortillas share the grill with the flour. So eat at your own risk 💩 Love the mojitos though!

They do not have a GF menu. The server went through the menu item by item and was very helpful. I did NOT get sick. They do not have a dedicated fryer so therefore there is cross contamination risk of the chips and some rice dishes.

The manager was very knowledgeable and very helpful. He even knew that I couldn’t have the fajitas because they’re marinated in beer. Staff was awesome. Unfortunately, very few options, but I would definitely return, just for the service. I got the mexi-Cobb salad with roasted chicken and a side of guacamole instead of dressing. Super yummy, and I don’t feel sick at all.

I can’t speak for the rest of the restaurant chain but the Chuy’s in Sterling was great! Jeff the manager was very kind and sat down and told us what we could have on the menu. We called ahead and they prepared chips gluten free, drained the fryer and refilled with new oil. The key is call ahead and let them know you are coming and you have a gluten issue. I had tacos and my daughter had nachos. The boom boom sauce was a great alternative to the queso which they make with a rue.

Called ahead to learn about GF options; the person who answered the phone wasn't particularly knowledgeable about it but she was patient with my questions and willing to go find someone who knew the answers.

Got to the restaurant, and the server confirmed that the chips are GF and cooked in a dedicated fryer. She said the proteins are all GF. My daughter wanted the nachos; she was first told they are not safe because the chips used are different from the ones on the table and aren't fried in the dedicated fryer. But then the server came back and said they could make the nachos with the same chips that are served on the table -- just ask for the "trash can nachos."

Overall they could be a little more helpful to their GF diners. Wish they offered either a dedicated menu or even GF indicators on their regular menu. Plus, it should be easy to swap out a flour tortilla with corn if someone wants tacos.
