Is there anyone out there who knows if there is anything gluten-free on their menu? I'm craving it sooo bad right now! HELP! :)

We have a new one in our town. I tried contacting them via their website three times and never got a response. Finally I had my husband stop by one day and ask if their regular tacos were gluten-free, and the answer was no.

That's all I know - I never made any further attempts. Sorry!

I have heard that their meat seasoning contains gluten. I eat there about once a week usually though... I get crispy chicken tacos or chicken nacho salad w/o chili sauce. I know it doesn't necessarily mean I'm not getting glutened, but I haven't gotten gluten-sick from there.. and I'm pretty sensitive. ::shrug::

Ok..bad news for my fellow Bueno lovers..

I emailed their office and they wrote back stating that they can't confirm what is gluten free at this time, but they are looking into a gluten free menu in the future. Guess we'll see!

Just thought I'd add an update. I emailed Taco Bueno this week to see if anything has changed - nothing has. Here's the email I received today:

"At the present time, we cannot recommend our menu as gluten-free since
we use the same fryer for both corn and flour, though the Ultimate
Gourmet Bowl is one item that we can recommend as gluten-free. Also,
the black beans and white rice are gluten-free.

We are currently conducting testing regarding a possible gluten-free
menu in the future.

I hope this information is helpful to you and please contact me if I can
help further."

I don't live near a Taco Bueno, I was wondering because I'm traveling for Thanksgiving and I know my boyfriend will want to eat there - he misses it terribly. I looked at the website and couldn't find the Ultimate Gourmet Bowl anywhere, so I don't know what it actually is.

I feel your pain about craving Taco Bueno. I used to eat there all the time as a kid (long before I knew anything about celiac), and have basically been dying for Bueno every since I moved away from Tulsa, OK when I was 13. It used to be that whenever we went back for a visit, my mom and I would make our first stop there, haha. Aren't the owned by the same company as Casa Bonita, though? We have one of those nearby... though I'd be too afraid to order anything there.

I went to Taco Bueno today in Blue Springs, MO.  I was told by the manager nothing is Gluten Free except black beans.  The chips are fried in the morning in filtered oil, by afternoon everything is fried in the same oil.  She suggested a black bean tostada for $1.29, however they do not have a separate area for preparing.
