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!

Love their chips and guacamole or queso! So good. Lots of options, including tacos.They also have some packed gf brownies by the cashier.

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.

Had an entire gluten free menu, HOWEVER it’s not truly all gluten free. They use a shared fryer and don’t clarify that on the menu so be careful

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.

Large gluten free menu. Staff seemed knowledgeable about my requirements. Chips have a dedicated fryer. All sauces are GF. Lots to choose from. Ate there last night. So far no effects.

GF queso and chips are the bomb - they have GF tacos too - but I recommend trying to go off hours - I worry about CC when they are super swamped!

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.

Have a gluten free menu and really good about knowing what ingredients need to be changed for safety. Have an allergy key when ordering to alert the kitchen.

Went because I saw the GF “sensitive” menu and the other reviews but unfortunately my Nima gluten sensor detected gluten in my crossroads taco : ( this was at the one on Penn

Democrat tacos are delicious. I’ve never had an issue here or at any Torchy’s. Chips are safe and addictive.

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

They have a pretty decent size gluten free menu, and the chips and queso are amazing! Also highly recommend the green chile pork taco.

Gluten sensitive menu. Delicious creative tacos. No reactions after eating there several times. Just wish they had homemade tortillas, other than that they were amazing.

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.

Their gluten free menu is not consistent with allergen information provided. I got tacos that were allegedly GF and got extremely sick. Will not be returning.

So many GF tacos to choose from!! And they’re all amazing. One of my faves that’s always on the menu is the democrat taco. And they have a special taco of the month!! Always fun to try new things.

Do not eat here!!! The staff has no idea what’s in their items and can’t put in an order correctly. I’ve been to this location twice and got sick both times. Go somewhere else, or if you REALLY want some Torchys, go to the one in San Antonio at the Quarry.

Be very cautious about ordering off the gluten free menu here. I ordered a shrimp taco off the gluten free menu. The taco I was served had breaded shrimp in it. Thankfully I saw the breading and asked the manager about it. She said the shrimp was breaded in flour. I told her that I ordered from the gluten free menu and that I have celiacs so I could not eat it. They had to make entirely new tacos that had grilled shrimp.

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.

They had a great menu and marked that we were gluten free so it was handled safely. Really enjoyed it.

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.

Most everything can be gluten free with a corn tortilla, even fried choices can be made not fried. The chips are made in a dedicated fryer and the queso is gluten free! I did not have a problem eating here at all!

Staff was not attentive and tacos were way spicy for me. I also had to send two back because they came out with gluten. Would not recommend.
