Chevys has discontinued their gluten free menu due to the fact that they cannot guarantee that every restaurant is able to prevent cross-contamination.
They were very accommodating. They brought out gluten-free chips for the whole table.
I called tonight for carry out and asked for gluten free chips with the guacamole. I think they used to fry the chips in a different fryer. They told me they no longer accommodate gluten free. Just wanted to post this as a warning to others. They said it is too risky and they don’t want to make anyone sick, I appreciate that, but their chips were my favorite.

They can no longer inform customers about what is gluten free due to legal reasons. Their new menu says nothing about what is gluten free. Our waitress told us that everything is “eat at your own risk” because they can’t share how they handle cross contamination or tell customers about what can and cannot be made gf. She told me that the only thing she can say is gf are the beans.

We talked to the manager when we walked in and asked him questions. He seemed very knowledgeable. Most fillings are gluten free. They can substitute corn tortillas for flour but if you want a burrito on a corn tortilla, ask to have it made on a separate, clean cutting board. The fryer is not gluten free for those sensitive or celiacs so no chips but the salsa is gluten free though spicy. He specifically mentioned the fajitas could be made gluten free so that's what I ordered. We saw him chat with the server so our server also seemed aware and told us to avoid the farmer's market enchiladas as the sauce is not gluten free and the filing has a little of the sauce in it.
I would only say this is celiac friendly if the manager on duty seems knowledgeable so before you order talk with the manager. The manager on the day we came said he would personally supervise it so I felt more comfortable.
Not a good place for Celiacs. When I asked for a GF menu, the manager who came over to ask me what celiac disease was. She said they no longer have a gluten free menu because “the company wants to save money.” They no longer have a shared fryer she said, but seemed unsure about where gluten could be found. I had symptoms afterwards so I will probably not go back.
Waitress never had anyone ask for gluten and dairy free items on the menu. But got answers To all my questions. They will make baked corn chips gluten free. Not very tasty. Fajita was made gluten free and the chicken was tender.
This location no longer has a dedicated gluten-free menu. They do have notations on their menu of what is "gluten-friendly", and do have gluten-free chips, which you must request. They have maybe 10 gluten-free options for dinners. I asked the waitress if the "normal" enchiladas could be made gluten-free and she looked at me as if I was speaking a foreign language. Hubby, which is the gluten-free person in our family, ended up ordering the chipotle chicken enchilada, which he enjoyed the entire dish. I had to ask her to PLEASE write on the ticket that he has to be gluten-free. Hubby is pretty sensitive and I was convinced that he was going to end up sick, but 18 hours later he is still good.
The manager came over to take our order. They have a shared fryer. So no chips also no rice it is cooked in fryer. We were able to get taco's with ground beef, pico, lettuce, aioli sauce and black beans. Tested food with Nima and it came back negative for gluten. The manager and chef seemed very knowledgeable about Gluten. They chef came out to check on us as well. They don't have many options but they made sure we were taken care of.
They now have a clear gluten free Menu - I have eaten here and not got glutened on either of the two occasions I ate here. I had enchiladas, Hard Corn Tacos and Tamales - which I hadn’t risked in years. I would advise being vigilant though, as on one occasion my plate came with a side that according to the menu had gluten in - so I sent it back. They worked hard to include me in all choices and prepared Fresh complimentary GF tortilla chips and salsa - see photos. Also had the GF Flan for a 🍮 dessert 🎉
My friend and I went for a much needed girls date. We sat at the bar and when the bartender brought out the chips I said I had a question. Before I could go any further he said "they aren't gluten free". I was going to be OK with a straight answer, order drinks and fajitas but then he says "but I can go in the back and make some with fresh oil just for you". that absolutely made my night!!!! the thought and consideration in the service! I was impressed that they knew right off the bat that oil cross contaminates. We also got to talk to the manager, he really took a lot of pride in having staff that takes the extra step to provide great service and make people feel welcome. The other bartender took our food order and asked if we wanted the black beans because those were the GF bean option. I had a safe meal and feel like they really got it!
This place is amazing, I loved eating there because there are some great gluten free food options. Since I found out I can't tolerate corn products, I only go for the Happy Hour special fron 3-8pm, appetizers and drinks are half off!
The menu has a decent amount of GF items, I am not super sensitive to cross contamination and I got SICK! One of the first times I was sick from a restaurant. Server brought out flour tortillas after I explained my allergy. Had to send them back. She seemed very inconvenienced. I will not be back
One of our favorites! Separate dedicated fryer for the gluten free chips, taco shells, etc. Ever since I discovered they can make the fried flautas gluten free, using a corn tortilla, this is what I usually order (with an enchilada, yum!). I was saddened one time we went because there was a sign on the door, “Our gluten free fryer is down.” But how AMAZING is that that they were considerate enough to let their gluten free customers know before they even went in! We didn’t go in that time (because their chips and salsa are a must!)—but that was SO appreciated!
They do not have a gf menu but when i asked the host he told us to tell the waiter. Then a couple of minutes after we sat (before the waiter came), the manager came over and went over the options (most of their meats are marinated in soy sauce, but they would cook just abt any meat,un-marinated, with salt and pepper). And then baked tortillas came! We forgot to ask abt enchiladas and while the waiter didn't know, he went back and asked (they could modify them). Overall, everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant. And the flan is gf!!
They are knowledgeable about gluten free and cross contamination however unlike other locations of this franchise they do not have a dedicated gluten free fryer. So the chips and hard shell tacos are not okay if you have celiac. That was really disappointing.
Being gluten-free and dairy-free, it's hard for me to find a good spot. The manager came over and told me they would bake corn tortillas so there would be no cross-contamination, and he was kind enough to recommend several dishes. I got the fish tacos without the chipotle sauce (had dairy), with a side of black beans and mango salsa. It was to die for! So good and fresh. The salsa was amazing, as well.
I'm a recently diagnosed Celiac, and still not very trusting of restaurants but went to Chevy's for a work lunch. To my pleasant surprise, the had a separate GF menu. The food was pretty good and I'm happy to say I did not get sick 😉. It's such a relief when a restaurant has a dedicated menu but I will continue having trust issues regarding their preparation practices until I verify no "Glutenation" has occurred! 😉
