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

Celiacs beware!

Sorry celiacs, Torchy's in NOT gluten free. After eating there several times and the managers saying their food is GF, one manager said absolutely not. I spoke with the VP of operations, and over an hour with their culinary chef in charge of the menu. They cook GF ingredients on the same flat top grill as gluten containing products. They cook chips in the same dryers as flour products. Kitchen designs are too small for seperate prep and dedicated cooking surfaces and fryers. I recommended they change their menu to say gliuten friendly; not gluten free - TBD. Will not eat here until they resolve these issues. Too bad; food is amazing!

Great food. Ate many times and no gluten. Use the GF menu and follow the directions. That means do not order "gluten free..." Order "taco with out ... And with ..." Just as the GF menu says.

While the food is great, I've been glutenated enough times to not go here anymore. If you have real issues with gluten ( not a lifestyle choice ), stay away. If you choose by choice, go eat a green chile pork taco.

When ordering online, they let you know What allergens are present in the item and allow you to make adjustments and mark ‘gluten allergy’ and each item. As of February 2021, they do NOT have a dedicated fryer so chips cannot be considered gluten-free.

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.
