    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.

    I had chips and queso. They were good. I didn't have a taco but when I asked about gf they said they can make any taco with a gf corn tortilla.

    Tacos are excellent and the staff is super helpful! I'm gluten free, my husband isn't and we both had a terrific lunch!

    Really tasty tacos and chips and queso and they have gf menu online, but I was mildly sick after both times I ate there, so there must have been cross contamination but it was mild. I've had way worse reactions from restaurants, this just made my stomach a little upset for about an hour. I'm very sensitive though, so if you're less sensitive you'll probably be totally fine. Friendly staff, great margs, and the food was really good.

    Ate here for the first time. Very tasty & fresh food. They use corn tortillas, see the online GF menu for options. Little too spicy for my tastes but it was very good. Enjoyed the chips & queso, crossroads was very good & the democrat was ok. Will be going back!

    Very good about gluten free, the server that took my order even said they would change gloves. Awesome!

    They have a gluten free menu online which is very helpful. Most everything can be made gluten free, usually it's just a corn tortilla instead of flour. The tacos and street corn are very delicious!

    Came from Nebraska and was nervous about traveling and food allergies. The staff took the time to make sure our visit here was the best. My husband says he wishes he would have ordered 2 wranglers instead of just one! Thanks Torchys for making our vacation a little more relaxing. If you have a dairy problem make sure you order your breakfast taco without eggs.

    They made a lot of changes regarding their gluten free choices to the point of putting gluten free/ food allergy alerts on the tickets/ receipts when ordering. In the past the cashiers were clueless even if you ordered off the special lamented gluten free menu which caused problems when your order came out unsafe (and you find out why after eating). Still there mobile app is gluten friendly even before that got updated. I would call in my an order specifically mention it needed to be gluten free and always got help or a callback when something could not be such as their monthly taco of the month. This is why I will keep going back to this Torchy's.

    Oh so yummy! A good variety of gourmet tacos, chips & dips. The place was packed, but the line moved quickly & the food was served quickly. I had the baja shrimp taco, chips & salsa. Fabulous!
