The chips aren't GF, even if they say it's OK, they are NOT safe for celiac (no dedicated fryer).

Other than the chips, you can order a lot and not get sick, you just need to check with the manager. Some of the UT students who work here are clueless about celiac disease (nice kids, just not trained).

If you do have celiac disease, the manager will help you to figure out what you can eat, and will be knowledgeable. They also take precautions for cross contamination if they know you are allergic, and not just a lifestyle GF person.

My wife has hyper-sensitive celiac disease, so Torchy's made her nervous the first time. After two times back, she's never been glutened or sick.

I give four stars because even though they are celiac able, a lack of GF menus and staff training makes it unfriendly to persons with the disease.

Just went in for the first time in a while only to be told that they no longer have a gluten free menu because the previous one was incorrect :/ this is very discouraging but everyone was helpful and I was still able to find something.

Never cease to impress. The tacos are delectable and it doesn't hurt that they have cane sugar Dr. Pepper

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.

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.
