If you'll be in the downtown area (or near the Woodlands), Chuy's is a GREAT place to go to. Here's the e-mail they sent me a few months ago (the same response is on their site):

I looked into your request with a few of our staff members and assuming corn

and corn-based products are okay, there are quite a few items you should be

able to have. We have two sauces that are thickened with cornstarch rather

than a roux, so you can have the tomatillo and ranchero sauces on

enchiladas. Items like nachos, flautas, and our chalupas should be ok. We

can also offer you fajitas with corn tortillas instead of flour, and our

salads should be wheat free (though you'll want to double check dressings).

Any of our tacos can be ordered with corn tortillas, too. We pride

ourselves on making dishes to order, so please don't hesitate to ask for

substitutions to fit your needs. We also encourage you to ask your server

any questions you might have and they can check with the kitchen on any item

you have reservations about. I hope this info helps and we hope to see you


Their rice is safe (for me, and I'm really sensitive to gluten). I'd stay away from their salsa, it's given me problems in the past. The deluxe tomatillo, ranchero, and regular tomatillo sauces are all okay. They didn't mention this, but you can request the Chile Rellenos (my personal favorite) to be grilled instead of battered and fried; the grilled version is perfectly safe. They really DO handle specialty orders really well and the managers are pretty nice and knowledgeable.

Also, there's Buffalo Wild Wings; I've heard all but two of their sauces are safe. I can't remember for the life of me which ones, though.

And there should be a few Carabba's in Houston as well; they have a gluten free menu also.

Hope this helps!
