El Toro Mexican Restaurant in Baytown has an extensive gluten free lunch & dinner menu. I ordered beef fajitas with corn tortillas, rice, and retried beans. The chips are corn and in a separate fryer; the salsa is also gluten free. Huge outdoor patio which is great for dining during the COVID-19 pandemic.
— Separate gluten-free menu
I called before ordering to ensure gluten free and the girl I spoke to assured me they had gluten free options. I had enchiladas verde not only did I get horrible gluten poisoning the food lacked flavor and I found a bone in my chicken. It was horrible. I would not recommend this place and I will not be returning
— Not at all
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
There are plenty of gluten free options, made with corn or you can get the taco salad without the taco shell bowl. Staff says chips are made with corn so they are gluten free but they do share the same fryer
They try hard to accomidate gluten free and the staff worked hard to be sure it was gluten free. However, this is the type of gluten free restaurant that thinks it has to remove the flavor with the gluten. My food was bland. No salt and pepper or anything. Also the chips are gluten free but not the salsas so I wasn't even able to add salsa to add flavor. It's somewhere I might eat again if I needed to, but not somewhere in going to make a special trip for.
I was told their chips were not GF. After studying the menu ordered a shrimp salad without tortilla strips. It was yummy. See on the reviews another customer was given a GF menu. Will ask for one next time. Was my favorite place to eat before being diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
This was my first visit out to eat after getting diagnosed with Celiac Disease. My waiter was very friendly and helpful. He wasn't sure what was gf, but he went back and spoke to the chef who was very knowledgable about gluten intolerance. He suggested the fajita chicken with bell peppers and onions. Served with avocados, garbanzo beans, and gf tortillas. It was super delicious! The waiter even asked me several questions to try and get a better understanding of what could happen if I ingested gluten. Really nice for my first gf dining out experience. Would be nice to have more options though.
