Everything is gluten free except the flour tortillas. You can ask the workers to change their gloves or prepare your food in the back to avoid cross contamination. Nachos, cheese dip, tortilla chips, tacos. All GF.

This has become my go-to when passing through the ATL airport. Super yummy and everything but the flour tortilla’s are gluten free. I always get a veggie bowl and load everything on it. They kindly change their gloves when asked, too. :)

Everything here is gluten free except the flour tortillas for the burritos. The staff is friendly and if you ask them to change their gloves before handling your food they will. The chips and one of the meats used to be unsafe but in 2023 they updated their ingredients so that both are now completely gluten free. Nothing but the corn chips are put in the fryer so those are safe. I regularly get the bowl with whatever toppings I want and cheese dip and have yet to be cross contaminated here.

UPDATE: Willy’s has launched a fried flour tortilla as a salad bowl so their oil is now cross contaminated (used to only fry chips or corn shells). We still get takeout there but order taco box (all ingredients separately packaged for taco bar at home) and use our own chips.

Willy’s did such a good job for my celiac son. Both workers changed their gloves as soon as I asked them to and asked what the allergies or contamination concerns were. Everything except the flour tortillas and cookies is gf. We had hard shell (corn) tacos and chips with cheese dip! Nice to make it so easy.

Always had a good experience, and they also claim their chips are only fried with other chips & no flour in the cheese dip.
