In Topic: Baja Fresh Steak And Chicken Not Gluten Free

12 March 2014 - 01:40 AM

I recently contacted Baja Fresh and they confirmed the recipes changed about 2 years ago, and that the rice is deep fried in the same fryer used for breaded items. I am guessing the changes occurred not long after the new CEO came in. I looked online several times on and off over the past year or so to find out if it was gluten free, and clearly I was only reading old posts. Also I failed to do the most important standard step we all learn to do after our diagnosis...inform servers every time you are out to eat that you cannot have any gluten. Complacency got the better of me, well and I loved the taste of their steak fajitas ;). There are still options there which is great.

In my correspondence with Baja Fresh I asked if they would post a gluten free menu or information regarding what items may contain gluten on their website. The response was courteous but not definitive. Only time will tell if that will happen. So, again, for now do your due diligence and ask, ask, ask, and when in doubt go without. Happy, healthy eating to all.
