They were super attentive to me informing them that I had celiac disease. Chips came out in a sealed bag, waiter asked all the right questions. I felt safe eating there and had no issues after the meal. Would definitely eat here again.

Yummy Tex-Mex and celiac friendly. You can request a separate packaged bag of GF chips when they bring out the chips and salsa. My daughter ordered some GF tacos, and the waiter asked if she wanted crispy or soft tacos. She replied crispy, but then he came back a minute later to ask her if soft was ok because the crispy ones weren’t fried in a dedicated fryer. Was nice to see that the kitchen was paying attention to those details! Had a great meal and my very sensitive celiac daughter felt comfortable eating there and did not get sick.

One of the best and most celiac friendly restaurants I have ever been too! They’re also very friendly for shellfish allergies.

Pretty good Tex Mex food. Had the appetizer dip trio and enjoyed the guacamole and the queso, not so much the bean dip. Make sure to ask for GF chips - they come in a separate bag. I had the chili cheese enchiladas and the rice/beans, which were pretty good.

Maudies is the absolute best. The food is fantastic, the prices are pretty inexpensive, and the gluten free menu options are endless. The gluten free items are marked on their menu and it seems like most of the menu is/can be gluten free. The staff is super knowledgeable. They bring a sealed GF bag of chips for you by request. It’s rare now that I’m gluten free to go to a place and be overwhelmed (in a good way) by the number of options. The food is sooooo good, GF or not. My goal is to try something new every time we go there! I feel completely safe eating there and will continue to be a regular customer because of that and the great staff. Maudies, you’re my favorite!

We got the fajitas without cheese and sour cream so DF/GF.

Menu is well marked with gluten free and gluten alternative. They were very helpful when it came to ordering.

They also had GF chips that were brought out and sealed so you knew they weren’t the normal ones.

Maudie’s Too has a really nice outdoor patio. On a hot summer day the breeze blowing through was really nice, but the noise from the cars was a bit much. I am a celiac and had read the previous reviews on here. When we went, I asked right away for gluten free chips and we got them. We ordered the appetizer trio and enjoyed the thin and crispy chips that come out in a plastic bag that you open and pour into a bowl yourself, which was nice. Queso was a little cold, guac was spicy, and “spicy” bean dip was a bit bland. I am the kind of person who just enjoys all food, so still a 3 stars. I ordered the veggie fajitas. They did not come out on the steaming tray as usual :/ but the mushrooms and onions were exceptional. Also came with a plate of delicious fresh tomato salsa (definitely a highlight) and other taco toppings. The real highlight was the tortillas that were white corn and the best corn tortillas I’ve ever had. I even double checked with our server when I saw them because I figured they had to be wheat. But they were corn, and so soft and delicious. I enjoyed the fajitas overall, friend got cheese enchiladas and both were a solid 4 stars. Overall comments: waiter was a little brusque, kind of a hit or miss, but was helpful and did answer all questions I asked. I felt safe, or else I would have left. Food was good and I didn’t get sick. Definitely worth a try.

One of the best GF places I’ve ever eaten at! Servers were very understanding. Brought me my own GF chips. Our table was splitting to orders of fajitas and they brought out one of them gluten-free for me. Menu shows what items are or can be made gluten-free. I was very impressed and didn’t get sick. Definitely recommend!

I was disappointed to see that someone said Maudie’s wasn’t Celiac Friendly... I’m extremely sensitive and they are my go to place! And I have never gotten sick there. Then I read that the poster said he ate the chips they put on the table ASSUMING they were GF! I don’t eat anything without verifying that it is gluten free! This place brings you GF chips in a bag to insure there is no chance of cross contamination and you don’t think that is good enough? Thank you Maudie’s for going above and beyond, because we all know a dedicated fryer is only safe until someone drops a breaded food item into it!

I didn't get sick, it's got a lot of gluten free options, but I don't know why this place is so popular. The food was nothing special, disappointing in fact. With all the great food I've had while visiting Austin, I'm a bit bummed I wasted a meal on this place.

I'm a celiac and this place is the real deal. The food is excellent and they really take care of gluten free customers, including celiacs. They have separate GF chips, and food done in a dedicated area. You may have limited menu options, but the food is so good, you won't care. I got the appetizer sampler and the bowl and I was in heaven.

Maudie's is my go to Mexican restaurant. They have the biggest menu and a separate area for gluten free. You do need to ask for chips which will be brought out in a bag, but the wait staff is very knowledgeable. I usually get enchiladas or fajitas. The margaritas are also delicious.

DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU ARE GLUTEN FREE!!!!!

We went there after finding them on Find Me Gluten Free. I specifically wanted to go because they said they had undergone special training and were certified gluten free. When the waitress approached us, I immediately asked for a gluten free menu. In the meantime, someone brought us chips and salsa which I immediately started eating, When the waitress returned with our menus, she said she would now bring us gluten free chips. When I asked about the chips that had already been served to us, she said "they have a little bit of gluten." WTF....for someone who is celiac there is no such thing as "a little bit" being okay. The manager came over and basically said that it was our fault because people usually announce they are gluten free before they ever sit down. Again, WTF. I tried to explain what a huge issue this was and that they need to change their procedure (putting gluten chips down at a place that is certified gluten-free), but she just didn't get it. She just kept saying we should have told her before we sat down. She did say that it was a cross contamination issue not an ingredient issue, but we chose to leave anyway. There is so much gluten free tex options in Austin, don't take a chance with this place, We ended up at Torchy's tacos and had the best tacos of our lives.

I’m rating as a 3 due to the horrible lack of service. Our waiter took forever to take our order. The person who delivered our food to the table was very nice and helpful. We ran out of water twice and had to get up and get our own refills. When eating spicy food, that’s never a good thing. I also ordered a margarita. I asked the waiter if he could make sure the margaritas were made with 100% agave, to be gluten free. He said all were GF. It took 18 minutes to get the drink and I was already finished with my meal. When we got the ticket, my drink was $12.95! More than our meals! I did not get sick, so there is a positive. This was our first experience at this location. We will just stick with the Austin location. They are more competent at that location.

GF items marked on the menu. They have GF chips and salsa upon request. The waitress added an allergy marker to my meal for the kitchen. Great Tex-mex place! We ate here a lot before I was diagnosed and I’m glad we still can.
