Gluten free menu has a great selection - all meats are free of marinade. Staff is very knowledgeable about needs and explaining options. Highly recommend if you’re staying around the Surfside area.

Great experience at El Toro's in Baytown. Beef enchiladas with ranchero (would have loved gf queso, but DF too), refried beans, rice, chips & hot sauce. Manager came to the table to help ... menu does show GF & Vegan on menu. Great waitress & I forgot her name. Very conscious of health concerns & she was in kitchen relaying my requests. Great experience. Very good food. It is a tish pricey, but eat enough chips & hot sauce & you can take home half of meal & they'll give you more chips & hot sauce. All & all would recommend.

This restaurant is NOT Celiac safe. I went for a girls lunch with my cousin and our daughters, I have Celiac disease and from the start let our server know. She was completely clueless about celiac so I asked lots of questions and tried to help her understand. Well after ordering from the gluten free menu, I couldn’t even make it home (30 minute drive) without having to stop twice and now I’m at home throwing up. This food has made me terribly, terribly sick. Do not go here.

El Toro Mexican Restaurant in Baytown has an extensive gluten free lunch & dinner menu. I ordered beef fajitas with corn tortillas, rice, and retried beans. The chips are corn and in a separate fryer; the salsa is also gluten free. Huge outdoor patio which is great for dining during the COVID-19 pandemic.
