Really bummed by how little is genuinely GF. Can’t even even their chips! They used to have a separate menu with all the GF options, but that’s not longer on the store. I’m also super disappointed they switched their drinks from MainRoot to Coca Cola products. Just goes to show that nutrition is not remotely on their radar.

We love torchys, I mean who doesn't. My negative rating is to reflect the lack of care around gluten and allergies in general. In 20+ orders, they have literally never gotten it right. A typical order for us is a fresh avocado on corn (from their gluten free menu) or a Baja shrimp (grilled shrimp) on corn. Never once have I not had to go back inside the store. It's always reflected correctly on the receipt, but the kitchen just seems to see the title and ignore the large red letters on there that day gluten free,.or grilled versus fried..

I hate given a negative star rating, but no amount of pleading or explaining seems to avoid the need for us to meticulously go through the order when it's delivered and always, always have to go back inside and have them remake.

Would be absolutely awesome if they could fix their process and I would immediately fix my review (which I've now moved from 5 stars in the beginning, one star at a time to one star).

But once they get it right, (and I'm pretty hungry by that point!), The tacos are great!

Takes “gluten allergy” precautions

Most tacos are gluten free as long as you get a corn tortilla. Note that chips are on the “gluten conscious” menu but are NOT celiac safe because they are made in a shared fryer

The gf menu is basically if you’re eating gf as a fad and not for intolerance and certainly not Celiac. For it to be gf, most of the sauces and some elements have to be altered but those changes aren’t visible when you get it, and the staff is so rushed they often make mistakes. You can probably safely eat the chips and quest but nothing else.

Dedicated Gluten Free Menu, but I had to google for it instead of finding directly on website. I had tacos on corn tortilla and a side of corn.

Torchy's has amazing food and is very celiac friendly. Mention you need your order gluten free and the manager on duty will follow your food and make sure the employees change their gloves.

Many tasty GF tacos with its own GF menu. Staff are always friendly. These are made-to-order so it's not a quick in and out, but worth the extra 5-10 minutes. Only problem is sometimes our orders have been wrong, so check your bag before you leave. Also keep in mind their chips are not Celiac safe.

They have a list of gluten free ingredients (though other locations have full GF menus). I've gotten breakfast tacos with my parents a couple times and haven't had any issues.

The food was good and they have a gluten free menu (although I had to pull it up on my phone). I was a little nervous, because I’m not really sure what sort of precautions they took even though I informed them Im gluten free… I started to feel pretty cruddy not long after. I can’t 100% attribute it to them, but I’m not sure I’ll be returning either.

I’ve been eating here almost daily for my lunch break. They have options and will absolutely go out of their way for your safety. They have a “gluten allergy” option on DoorDash and they are knowledgeable about cross-contamination. Definitely worth a shot if you’re looking for a frequent outing.

Sad. I got glutened so bad from there today. Sugar land location is great, today, it seemed this location didn’t care. I’m not sure where the breakdown in communication happened but I haven’t been this sick in a while.

The disclaimer says it all. Eat at your own risk. Also, it seems to always take way too long just to get some chips and queso….way too long.
