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.

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
