Once I notified my waitress she told me that they have a separate prep area and fryer for GF food. They wear gloves when preparing and change for GF diners food.

I don’t think I’ve written a review since 1973… but after your Dale Carnegie explanation (well done, sir!). THEN the fact I did not know what gluten was for 30 years got me a criminal misdiagnosis (T4 - for EARLY stage Hashi’s with NO symptoms) by my Doctor Sexter... IN 2001!! Thus NOW my Golden DREAM years are delayed, maybe in jeopardy? Bottom line: Sorry, I do not EVER buy iOS apps. I AM Generation X..! it saddens me how kids don’t know telephones were once for making calls’ BUT, there is NO doubt this same “tech” has infinite capability for good. SO??Personally I hope you manage the app on a BEACH in Thailand for 2 hours / day, MAX… I AM serious!!TWO! Hold the line brother… P.S. El Chico is of course a large, chain Mexi Restaurant and it is NOT bad. The 21st location in Tulsa, OK is a great lunch spot. It’s been awhile - so I’m due and eager to check out their GF menu! MUCH THX,, -TIII P.S.S. I realize I have not actually reviewed the GF food. But a good friend I once met here damn near weekly, & ya couldn’t wrong!

Always excellent service. I’ve never gotten sick there and we have gone weekly-monthly for years. Skinny ‘ritas and shrimp tacos are my favorite but also the Fajita Nachos, queso (without meat), and fajitas are all great. More can be made with small adjustments, like Fiesta Nachos with steak instead of chili.

This is one of our very favorite restaurants. My wife can't eat gluten and she's never had a problem with the chips. The white queso has gluten. The yellow is gluten free. Other than that, if you can't eat gluten, you know what to do from there.

Pro tip: ask for relish and corn tortillas. The relish consists of pickled onions, peppers and jalapeños. The corn tortillas are steamed and they're free as are , of course, the chips and salsa.
