Taco Bueno Limited Gluten Free Selection

By Dan on October 18th, 2010 - Areas:

Before I went gluten free I used to eat at Taco Bueno all the time. I alway saw them as a Taco Bell but with good, fresh food.

Liking them as much as I did I went to their website to see if they had a gluten free menu – they didn’t – so I emails them and they responded. Here is the email thread:

Hello,
Sorry at this time we cannot recommend our menu as gluten-free as the same fryer is used for both the corn and the flour. A menu item that can be recommended is the Ultimate Gourmet Bowl (offered in limited markets), and black beans and white rice.

So as you can see unfortunately they have a very limited selection of items that would be gluten free. It would be nice if they would get a separate frier in the future that would eliminate cross contamination. I appreciate their quick response though!

    Is the new Fresco Chicken soup gluten free?

  2. @Gail – I’m not sure. You would need to contact them directly to be on the safe side.

    So does that mean you can eat the chicken and steak on the bowl or just the rice and beans??

  4. I would assume that you can eat the meat in the bowl. If you are really sensitive though, you might not want to risk it.

    Taco Bueno Beef and Chicken ARE NOT gluten free. A manager told me the only thing she can say for sure that is gluten free…Black Beans
