Yummy Tex-Mex and celiac friendly. You can request a separate packaged bag of GF chips when they bring out the chips and salsa. My daughter ordered some GF tacos, and the waiter asked if she wanted crispy or soft tacos. She replied crispy, but then he came back a minute later to ask her if soft was ok because the crispy ones weren’t fried in a dedicated fryer. Was nice to see that the kitchen was paying attention to those details! Had a great meal and my very sensitive celiac daughter felt comfortable eating there and did not get sick.

One of the best and most celiac friendly restaurants I have ever been too! They’re also very friendly for shellfish allergies.

Great margs and GF chips come in a separate packages. My enchilada had many bones in it but the Fajitas are good

It will be strictly a margs and queso place for us from now on.

Pretty good Tex Mex food. Had the appetizer dip trio and enjoyed the guacamole and the queso, not so much the bean dip. Make sure to ask for GF chips - they come in a separate bag. I had the chili cheese enchiladas and the rice/beans, which were pretty good.

It was busy, but the waitress noted my allergy and made sure my meal turned out GF. The queso and chips are GF (you can ask for chips that are bagged & not cross-contaminated in the shared oil). The menu is VERY thorough and clear about what is GF and what can be modified to be GF- it’s most items.

Maudies is the absolute best. The food is fantastic, the prices are pretty inexpensive, and the gluten free menu options are endless. The gluten free items are marked on their menu and it seems like most of the menu is/can be gluten free. The staff is super knowledgeable. They bring a sealed GF bag of chips for you by request. It’s rare now that I’m gluten free to go to a place and be overwhelmed (in a good way) by the number of options. The food is sooooo good, GF or not. My goal is to try something new every time we go there! I feel completely safe eating there and will continue to be a regular customer because of that and the great staff. Maudies, you’re my favorite!

Staff was very knowledgeable when asked about gluten free options for dine in or take out. Brought separate GF chips and salsa before our food came out (standard chips and salsa are not GF).

We got the fajitas without cheese and sour cream so DF/GF.

Menu is well marked with gluten free and gluten alternative. They were very helpful when it came to ordering.

They also had GF chips that were brought out and sealed so you knew they weren’t the normal ones.

I have not had Tex-Mex food outside of my own home since 2014. I was over the moon thrilled. They brought me my own sealed bag of chips and the got me a separate salsa, just to make me feel safer. The grilled mahi taco were amazing with the corn tortillas

Maudie’s Too has a really nice outdoor patio. On a hot summer day the breeze blowing through was really nice, but the noise from the cars was a bit much. I am a celiac and had read the previous reviews on here. When we went, I asked right away for gluten free chips and we got them. We ordered the appetizer trio and enjoyed the thin and crispy chips that come out in a plastic bag that you open and pour into a bowl yourself, which was nice. Queso was a little cold, guac was spicy, and “spicy” bean dip was a bit bland. I am the kind of person who just enjoys all food, so still a 3 stars. I ordered the veggie fajitas. They did not come out on the steaming tray as usual :/ but the mushrooms and onions were exceptional. Also came with a plate of delicious fresh tomato salsa (definitely a highlight) and other taco toppings. The real highlight was the tortillas that were white corn and the best corn tortillas I’ve ever had. I even double checked with our server when I saw them because I figured they had to be wheat. But they were corn, and so soft and delicious. I enjoyed the fajitas overall, friend got cheese enchiladas and both were a solid 4 stars. Overall comments: waiter was a little brusque, kind of a hit or miss, but was helpful and did answer all questions I asked. I felt safe, or else I would have left. Food was good and I didn’t get sick. Definitely worth a try.

I ordered a gluten free marked item off their menu, and I informed the waiter that it was an allergy. He then asked me if I wanted flour or corn tortillas with the meal, but he did write down a allergy note on his notepad afterwards. My corn tortillas did come out wrapped on foil and labeled as 'gluten free', but I did not try them. My main dish did not cause me to have a reaction however.

I’ve eaten here twice and haven’t gotten sick either time. They bring bagged gluten free chips with a separate bowl of salsa and they will cook your food separately if you let them know. The second time I went I had to ask for the separate bowl of salsa, but they are very willing to accommodate!

Every Maudie’s we have been to they have been extremely knowledgeable and very careful. They have a dedicated celiac prep/kitchen space. They also bring chips in their own bag so you know they were not used in the same oil as gluten. Very safe! If you’re ever unsure, always talk to their friendly managers :)

One of the best GF places I’ve ever eaten at! Servers were very understanding. Brought me my own GF chips. Our table was splitting to orders of fajitas and they brought out one of them gluten-free for me. Menu shows what items are or can be made gluten-free. I was very impressed and didn’t get sick. Definitely recommend!

I was disappointed to see that someone said Maudie’s wasn’t Celiac Friendly... I’m extremely sensitive and they are my go to place! And I have never gotten sick there. Then I read that the poster said he ate the chips they put on the table ASSUMING they were GF! I don’t eat anything without verifying that it is gluten free! This place brings you GF chips in a bag to insure there is no chance of cross contamination and you don’t think that is good enough? Thank you Maudie’s for going above and beyond, because we all know a dedicated fryer is only safe until someone drops a breaded food item into it!

Wow! I flagged down manager and she explained their processes for keeping celiac customers safe. Told them I have celiac disease and they brought me my own salsa and GF chips in sealed bag. Staff well trained on cross contamination. Had tons of GF choices. I had chicken fajitas on corn (no Serrano peppers since newly diagnosed and server said they are pretty spicy). Expo who brought order out specifically said mine GF and tortillas clearly marked GF. Great food and enough for leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Had no issues. Thanks Maudie’s! I highly recommend this place.

I didn't get sick, it's got a lot of gluten free options, but I don't know why this place is so popular. The food was nothing special, disappointing in fact. With all the great food I've had while visiting Austin, I'm a bit bummed I wasted a meal on this place.

I have really bad celiac. So I'm very skeptical about places. And when you pull up this place looks ghetto on the outside. You go inside and it's packed! Also not ghetto. Waitstaff very knowledgeable. Chips come in a bag taste just like old school chips and salsa it was awesome. My mom and I shared fajitas. They brought my corn tortillas separate in a bag as well. They were homemade. Very good. I could taste hint of soy in the fajitas, I panicked. Asked the waitress she said yes there's soy but it's gluten free soy sauce. Didn't even get slightly sick and the food was amazing. Don't be afraid to eat here. Especially if you miss eating authentic Mexican food
