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

Love their breakfast tacos with corn tortillas. Tell them it’s a gluten allergy and they will help you out.

Good taco joint! Menu is marked and online ordering system let’s you select “gluten allergy.” Not as delicious as local Tex Mex joints but feels safer to eat GF. (Side note: beans cannot be made dairy free)

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.

Very tasty food! They noted that my items should be gluten free when taking my order. That said, I don’t think the chips are gluten free. It looks like there was some bit of fried something in my chips. If very sensitive or celiac, I’d avoid the chips.
