I ate the chips with no reaction and they had many options on the gluten-free menu but I did see that they had a combo on the normal menu. I got the pick 2 flautas with double rice. The chicken tortilla soup is also good without the tortillas.

If you have an actual problem with gluten like me, this probably isn't the greatest place for you. Cross contamination is a big problem (enough to get me sick) even if you state you have an allergy. He brought out the gluten free dish with onions made with soy sauce (not gluten free) I sent it back but still was not feeling well with the gluten free dish sans onions.

The chips aren't even gluten free... They are in grocery stores but not in restaurant.... No way I'll go there again.

I have been to the On the Border on 41st in Tulsa many times. I usually don't order from gf menu. Don't know that I've ever mentioned my food has to be gf. As long as I order enchiladas, tacos, or fajitas, I have no problem. The staff has always been courteous and quick to fill my order. The food has always been delicious. I love going here.

Ordered tacos off the gluten free menu that were supposed to be served on corn tortillas. They were served on flour tortillas. This used to be a safe restaurant for me but lately they are making more and more mistakes. I personally will no longer trust the restaurant.

Gluten free menu. Had the chimchurri chicken and shrimp with rice and veggies. Have also had the queso chicken and veggies with rice, queso, and guac. No reactions. Very good. Chips not gluten free.

I did not end up eating here because the person I spoke with when I called said that most of their meat is either cooked or reheated on the same flat top that is used to make their quesadillas and he had at some point seen people cook gluten in their dedicated gf fryers. He said they could definitely accommodate if I let them know it was severe, but it didn’t seem like a place I would trust not to contaminate.
