Delicious and separate GF menu, but I did have a reaction. Not a big one, but there may have been some cross contamination.

Very good for celiac, but no dedicated fryer (stay away from chips and fried anything). UPDATE: now has dedicated chip fryer at this location, OK for celiac for chips only. Other food fryer is still cross contaminated. Wife has celiac disease, and has no problem eating here. Great food.

Several gluten free options available and they have a gluten free menu upon request. Best tacos around!

It's been almost a year and a half since my last attempt at eating at this location. The ordering process seemed to work better and felt fine afterwards. I'll add a star each visit as long as there are no issues.

I've had horrible experiences with the location near me in Houston. So. Very. Bad. But I just had a great experience here in Waco. Considering the effort they put into the menu and checkout process I was satisfied and look forward to more visits in the 4 years to come if my child ends up attending Baylor.

GF menu available. Staff able to mark as gluten allergy — At this location, it includes changing gloves and heating corn tortillas in foil or separate area. The chips are NOT GF as they are in a shared fryer, even though queso is listed in Gf menu. Love the independent taco.

I’ve tried eating here a few times, and every time I get sick. I’m Celiac, I order off of the gluten friendly menu, and talk to them about allergies. I suspect they don’t understand how to be safe in their kitchen.

As long as I order off the “gluten conscious menu” (uploaded below) then I have not had any issues so far. Just ask for the menu!

Staff member was really helpful. He warned their chips are made in shared fryer. Tacos with corn tortillas are great. Avoid the chips even though they are listed on the “gluten friendly” menu because of the shared fryer.

As the chain does have gluten conscious menu, this location completely ignores it. When I placed my order, the cashier treated me as though I was a complete inconvenience. She then messed up my order on purpose and when I asked for it to be remade, she gave total sass. IF YOU FEEL LIKE TORCHY’S GO TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION.

They have a "gluten conscious" menu. Be very careful about ordering from it, because some items are grilled on the GF menu are breaded on the regular menu, so if you don't specify, you will get breaded. For example, the shrimp in the Baja Shrimp taco, or the mushrooms in the Independent taco. And always ask for corn tortillas. Aside from that, the tacos are great, as are the queso, guacamole, and the street corn.

I love their breakfast tacos on corn tortillas. I normally do the pick 3 breakfast item taco which I do chorizo, potato and beans. I will caution that the chorizo is a little on the spicy side but taste so good. I’ve also had their barbacoa tacos with their roja salsa . Overall, great food and service.

Not helpful when I asked about gluten free options. The “gluten friendly” menu was most of the same items on the main menu. I have Celiac, so I can’t just have it be “gluten friendly” and be safe. They didn’t have any details about the marinades or what I should really avoid. So I ended up ordering the salad. For $10 I could’ve bought 3 salad mixes at the grocery store and had 4 meals out of it. I got a few items for my husband and he didn’t find it all that good either. Your food is overpriced for what it is.

THE BEST TACOS. They had gluten sensitive menu options (grilled instead of fried) so I was able to try a lot of their tacos. Eaten multiple times and haven’t gotten sick. They do fry their chips in the same fryer FYI!

Overpriced, and sued a much better taco joint in town for their name. Would rather eat at DGT who are Celiac friendly and have awesome large portions for realistic amounts of money! Personally haven’t gotten sick here but they never heat up the corn tortillas properly so.....

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.

They do have a gluten free menu, and if you do get what you ordered, the food is delicious. But despite ordering a gluten-free taco, they delivered it in a flour tortilla. Then they didn’t bring my whole meal that I ordered. Frustrating.

Delicious tacos and sauces! Double layered the corn tortillas so the tacos don’t fall apart. Very flavorful tacos and beans!

Delicious food and lots of GF options. Staff is well-versed and can help you make safe choices, modifications where needed. Note about chips at this location: we were recently told that this Torchy’s does not always use a dedicated fryer for their chips!! Typically only on weekends when they are busy enough to use the extra one. We ask every time we go if the chips are fried separately.

This place is kind of hit or miss with being Celiac friendly. I definitely got a taco on a flour tortilla after talking with the girl who took my order about Celiac and gluten. The food is very good and cheap and filling, but it’s risky.

Do not go here for gluten free. Chips not guaranteed to be fried separate, tacos served with fried shrimp and fried mushrooms even when ordered carefully. They remade my dinner but I still got sick.

I wanted to give this restaurant 2 ratings. A one for their gf options but a 5 for quality and service. Their gluten conscious menu is NOT safe They cook chips and tortilla on the same grill as flour. If you ask they will wrap it in foil on the grill with care Also the chicken and beef have gluten Good food but not super safe of gf friendly

I've given this place multiple tries. They don't follow their own protocols for gluten free. I ordered gluten free egg and cheese breakfast tacos. The cashier has a button on the screen to show that the order is gluten free. Once again the button was not used. I've gotten sick in the past. I'll not risk it anymore.
