    Brisket nachos no shredded cheese was really good! The cashier noticed the kitchen I have a gluten allergy. No celiac reaction after leaving. They have a gluten allergy informational resource behind the counter.

    Fuzzy’s has an allergen list and offers a wide variety of gluten-free options. I always order brisket tacos on corn tortillas with Mexican rice and refried beans. Always confirm the order!!!

    DO NOT EAT HERE. I wish I could give this zero stars. Staff (including manager) told me that the corn tortillas and chicken were safe. Told me that the allergen button on the register would alert the kitchen to being careful. I was violently ill within 30 minutes. They clearly did not change their gloves or clean the surface like they promised they would. After calling and alerting them of my reaction, they did not act like this was a big deal at all or agree that further training was needed in the kitchen. Super disappointing because the Iowa City location was wonderfully safe. Sadness.

    I went in having been to other locations. They didn’t not have a gluten free menu and said all meats have gluten. I’m not sure if he wasn’t knowledgeable or if he was telling the truth

    Went to Fuzzy's for the 1st time and the food was delicious and fresh. They do not have a GF menu but online they offer an allergen document that tells you what you can and cannot eat. I found after discussing it with the staff the soft corn tacos, enchiladas or salads with either grilled veggies, shredded chicken or brisket were my options. The staff had not issue changing their gloves for my meal. The food all came out looming delicious, tasting delicious and #1 perk was I did not get sick. We will definitely be back.

    The girl working the counter seemed like she was unsure of gluten free practices and said that she “thought” it wouldn’t be safe from cross contamination. I’m reluctant to post this review because the location may be safe and it was just the worker i encountered tonight. Either way, as a celiac, i couldn’t take the chance so i did not dine here tonight.

    Their website lists gluten free options. I have eaten there a lot since being diagnosed with celiac and have not gotten sick. If you tell them at the cash register, they go back to the kitchen and make sure they know to change gloves. I eat their pork tacos. I have eaten at the Plano location. I tried a different location, and they were not knowledgeable about cc. I left and didn’t eat at the other location.

    I had a great experience. I called and spoke with the staff prior to going. I had a shredded chicken salad with no tortilla strips and avocado ranch dressing. They noted on my order that I had a severe wheat allergy and to change gloves. Salad was delicious and I didn't have any issues.

    This location has a dedicated fryer for their chips!!! But ask because not all fuzzys do :( I started getting sick and not knowing why. They had changed their fajita chicken seasoning and it has gluten in it. It use to be marked safe but they changed it months ago and I didn't know. We still love this place I just only eat the chips and cheese now.

    Well to start things off, the cashier was unknowledgeable of their menu that he serves everyday to people. We explained that we have serious gluten allergies and the cashier scoffs. After hemming and hawing back and forth what is safe for my wife and I to consume we finally realize that their chips are gluten-free but once they drop them in the fryer it is consider cross contaminated after the fact because they fry everything else that contains GLUTEN. Staff here I would consider Retarded to a small scale but definitely not the brightest I’ve came across traveling across Country. They also like to play games in the kitchen area where the food is meant to be prep and ready for the consumer. I highly recommend eating the trash in the dumpster out back rather than wasting time nor money here at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Location Columbia MO. 132 S 9th St. 65201 :)

    Rude staff. Allergen list claims chips are gluten free when they are fried in a shared fryer. Very annoying college frat boy atmosphere. Would rather eat my own toenail clippings than subject myself to the horrible music and arrogant atmosphere again.

    We went when it wasn't busy. The manager said they could prepare some items for celiacs, but he wasn't knowledgeable about cross-contamination. They don't really know what food is GF there. He handed me a complicated laminated chart that could mislead someone into thinking they could eat the crispy tacos. He said the cooks were careful with allergans, so I talked to them right after the counter clerk entered our tacos/refries/rice order (which had no special notation on it about restrictions). The worst things were that the brisket was waaaay too salty and the tacos were buried under mountains of iceberg lettuce. The taste wasn't worth the time educating the manager and staff!

    These guys are fabulous. The are fast and friendly. We are regular customers and they have been great to try to get to know us and what we like to order. They usually anticipate what we are going to want. (A nice perk.) If you are a local, repeat customer, they have a discount for you.I always enjoy the Queso Blanco (purchased). And the Fuzzy dust is a nice addition to the bottomless chips (complimentary).There are several options to choose from. And as a gluten free customer, there are plenty of GF options for me as well, including the fried potatoes as a side.If you are celiac, this probably isn't the place for you as there isn't a dedicated cooking area for gluten free.

    Specifically told them I could not have gluten because of celiac. Explained I've had seizures before from it as well. The staff acted like they understood. Got half way through my taco and realized they had given me flour after I specifically said corn. When I brought it up to them they did not seem sincerely apologetic at all.

    There's a gluten free menu, which is awesome. There are quite a few choices. The main thing to know is that you can't have anything fried; not even the crispy tacos or tortilla strips in the salad. The fryer is shared and would be cross-contaminated, but the soft tacos are made with corn and cooked on the grill. Make sure to let them know about any allergy so they can cook on a separate part of the grill. I always tell the cashier I have celiac disease, and they let the kitchen know to make sure nothing is contaminated!

    This location doesn't have a separate gluten free menu like the Bricktown location, but they have a personal fryer for just their corn tortilla chips. I would always ask to make sure there is no contamination. There is supposed to be a dedicated fryer for chips which makes the tortilla chips celiac friendly. I have yet to ask if I could fry potatoes separately, but I suppose that could be possible as well. The soft corn tortillas are to die, and I always ask for no chips on my salad!

    I was a little worried. The person taking my order had to ask others several questions and like another reviewer said, there is no GF menu at this location. The awesome thing is that the cook knew exactly what was and was not GF. He thankfully made my taco with shredded chicken and NOT the fajita chicken I ordered. It's not GF. I didn't have a reaction - OH YA! I''m not sold on this location though...a little skittish. By the way, it was quite tasty!
