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.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
