Democrat tacos are delicious. I’ve never had an issue here or at any Torchy’s. Chips are safe and addictive.

I wanted to give this restaurant 2 ratings. A one for their gf options but a 5 for quality and service. Their gluten conscious menu is NOT safe They cook chips and tortilla on the same grill as flour. If you ask they will wrap it in foil on the grill with care Also the chicken and beef have gluten Good food but not super safe of gf friendly

They have a pretty decent size gluten free menu, and the chips and queso are amazing! Also highly recommend the green chile pork taco.

Gluten sensitive menu. Delicious creative tacos. No reactions after eating there several times. Just wish they had homemade tortillas, other than that they were amazing.

There is a gluten free menu. I’ve tried several items and they’re all good. The staff are always helpful.

They have a whole separate gluten free menu and they tell the staff when you have an allergy. The tacos are still delicious gluten free!

I've given this place multiple tries. They don't follow their own protocols for gluten free. I ordered gluten free egg and cheese breakfast tacos. The cashier has a button on the screen to show that the order is gluten free. Once again the button was not used. I've gotten sick in the past. I'll not risk it anymore.

Gluten free menu is large and tasty. Had a Democrat taco and guacamole and chips, plus a frozen margarita. No dedicated kitchen space but worked for me.

Their gluten free menu is not consistent with allergen information provided. I got tacos that were allegedly GF and got extremely sick. Will not be returning.

So many GF tacos to choose from!! And they’re all amazing. One of my faves that’s always on the menu is the democrat taco. And they have a special taco of the month!! Always fun to try new things.

Do not eat here!!! The staff has no idea what’s in their items and can’t put in an order correctly. I’ve been to this location twice and got sick both times. Go somewhere else, or if you REALLY want some Torchys, go to the one in San Antonio at the Quarry.

Be very cautious about ordering off the gluten free menu here. I ordered a shrimp taco off the gluten free menu. The taco I was served had breaded shrimp in it. Thankfully I saw the breading and asked the manager about it. She said the shrimp was breaded in flour. I told her that I ordered from the gluten free menu and that I have celiacs so I could not eat it. They had to make entirely new tacos that had grilled shrimp.

Very good for celiac, but no dedicated fryer (stay away from chips and fried anything). UPDATE: now has dedicated chip fryer at this location, OK for celiac for chips only. Other food fryer is still cross contaminated. Wife has celiac disease, and has no problem eating here. Great food.

They had a great menu and marked that we were gluten free so it was handled safely. Really enjoyed it.

Dedicated Gluten Free Menu, but I had to google for it instead of finding directly on website. I had tacos on corn tortilla and a side of corn.

I love Torchys Tacos! Order from the gluten free menu and let them know you have celiac. It shouldn’t be a problem.

Most everything can be gluten free with a corn tortilla, even fried choices can be made not fried. The chips are made in a dedicated fryer and the queso is gluten free! I did not have a problem eating here at all!

Staff was not attentive and tacos were way spicy for me. I also had to send two back because they came out with gluten. Would not recommend.

We love Torchy’s! We have been eating Torchys Tacos for years in Austin and we’re over the moon they opened in Denver! My son and I have the allergy and we make sure we order taco bowls off the GF menu (oddly you have to ask for it at this location vs it being in the menu bins)

They are not careful when ordering gluten free. They just put corn taco. My shrimp taco cake out with fried shrimp.

Asked for a non-fried avacado taco twice in a row after explaining that my girlfriend has celiac disease. Twice in a row we've had to send it back because they gave us fried avacado in the taco. Even worse, after we make the order and emphasize the gluten free and please don't fry it, they tell us they understand when they clearly dont.

My 2 daughters have celiacs and we have never had an issue eating here. Chips are made in their own fryer so that are gluten free! They usually get chips and guacamole and the bacon, egg, and cheese gluten free tacos. Food is great, service is fast, and the servers and really polite.

I went the other day and I'm SO. GLAD. I got the Baja shrimp tacos. They had queso that looked amazing, but the chips aren't safe so I'll have to bring my own next time. I was a little skeptical at first because when I asked about gluten free the cashier said "gluten cautious" and also didn't automatically make my shrimp grilled instead of fries. But everything turned out well and I've pronounced it my new favorite taco place. Just take precaution like always and clarify before and after you get your food, as it's counter service which usually allows more room for mistakes.

The meat and chicken are both marinated in Shiner bock. The manager confirmed the fish and the chili pork were ok. They do not use a dedicated fryer for chips and they no longer have a gluten free menu. My celiac kids ate cheese quesadillas on corn tortilla and did not get sick.

Staff seemed knowledgeable but gluten free menu is not accurate. Chips are listed as gf but are fried in shared oil with flour. Will be staying away until menu issues are fixed.

Never made me sick!! The migas breakfast taco (no tortilla strips) and crossroads are delicious. I do not recommend eating the chips, because there is high risk of cross contamination. Be sure to specify that it's and "allergy" not preference and the staff will let the kitchen know.
