We attended the soft opening (it officially opens in just a few days on May 15, 2024). They confirmed they have a dedicated gluten free fryer for the chips. We've had luck at other locations with their gluten sensitive menu (avoiding chips at locations that don't have a dedicated fryer) and this one was just the same. They did mention that the potatoes recently changed to hashbrown style and those are not fried in the dedicated fryer, so just be aware of that potential if they don't switch back to diced potatoes.

i loved the experience here. i loved torchys before i knew i was celiac, and i love it even more now. The guy taking the order was super helpful and even went to ask the manager about the seasoning on the potatoes, unfortunately they didn’t know if that seasoning had gluten so we just got it without the potatoes. anyways, i felt very safe about it and they even put gluten allergy on the receipt:) i was so happy i could get the trailer park with grilled chicken and corn tortilla

The first 2 times I went were great. I ordered 2 breakfast tacos the first time and the barbacoa and brisket tacos the 2nd time and had no issues. They were curteous and everything came out quickly.

The last time I went I stated gluten allergy and she put it on the order. I ordered the fresh avocado and the barbacoa to go. When I got back to work to eat them I noticed the fresh avocado was actually fried. I ate it anyway and oh boy was I hurting later. Normally just a little bit of gluten doesn't bother me so I don't know if there was more than just the avocados that were contaminated or what. They title their gluten free menu as gluten conscious so maybe that should have told me to double check. I will eat there again but will be a lot more cognizant as the food is really good and the staff is friendly.

Delicious tacos! Eaten here several times with other celiacs and no one’s gotten sick. They have a separate “gluten conscious” menu.

The app has a lot more diet and allergen information and clear options than ordering in person. Even if you're eating there, you could review it ahead or grab a table and order on your phone, especially if you're avoiding dairy and soy. Those are much harder to identify on the in-store menu.

I got the airstream salad and it was good. There is a risk of cross contamination since it’s a shared kitchen but I didn’t get sick.
