This torchy’s is not great at gluten free food. Staff is not knowledgeable. Even though they are supposed to use a separate fryer for chips they don’t. You have to ask for the specific gluten friendly menu.

Not celiac friendly. Menu clearly marks gluten free but kitchen space must be shared.

AMAZING tacos and very affordable! Homemade corn tortillas are delicious. You do have to watch the sauces they give you because they are not all GF.

Please be extremely careful!! The gluten free menu items have the same names as regular menu items and when I ordered, they gave me the battered fried items even though I specified gluten free and asked directly if they needed any modifications to make them gluten free. I called to confirm that the fried avocado and Baja shrimp definitely have wheat in the batter- unfortunately after I had tried them. Bad bad fail at a gluten free menu!

Told them I was celiac. Ordered my tacos separate from the rest of the family. Was definitely glutened. I should have known better. Do not eat here if celiac is my advice. No matter how badly you want Torchy’s. :)

I generally am able to go to Torchy's Tacos without any issues, but have had problems with this particular location on numerous occasions. In the past, I have come to this location with a non-gluten free friend and they have served our tacos together, even though I specified that could not eat gluten. They appear to not have any idea about cross contact and I no longer feel safe to eat here as someone with Celiac disease.

The gluten sensitive menu has some fun choices. BUT is not all celiac safe. The dedicated fryer for corn chips is often used for flour products. The corn tortillas are on the same grill with the flour. Thankfully the manager had experience with celiac and warned me.

That said, they went out of the way to make me the best taco bowl I’ve ever had. And I did not get sick. Soooo good.

Worst Torchy's I've tried. Not a safe as other locations; it seems their kitchen does not implement the allergy anti-cross contamination procedures properly.
