Tocaya Modern Mexican

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“90% of the menu is gluten-free with several dairy-free and vegan options. They have the best gluten and dairy-free fried fish tacos, as well as gluten-free and vegan fried churro bites. They also have salads, bowls, burritos, and chips in a dedicated fryer.”

Hugo’s Tacos

Location: Los Angeles, California

“This little fast casual taco stand rates high on flavor and gluten-free options. This spot, with two LA locations, has a huge carefully labeled menu including gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. All the gluten-free fried foods are made in a dedicated fryer and they’re well aware of word celiac. The tacos are great but the churros are out of this world. My go to order is always a couple tacos, soy chorizo taquitos, and car load size of churros. When you think of authentic, fried churros this place absolutely nails it.”

401k Food and Wine

Location: Los Angeles, California

“If you’re looking for a great dinner spot on the west side, make a reservation at dedicated 100% gluten-free 401k Food and Wine. This wine bar is owned by the same owner as Sinners and Saints Bakery two doors down. 401k has a great wine menu and an inventive and different food menu to pair. Make sure to sit on the back patio then start your meal with the buttermilk biscuits and finish it with mini corn dogs, beef sliders, or carne asada quesadilla. For dessert, grab an order of churros or go next door to Sinners and Saints and pick up their tres Leches cake that can’t be beat.”

De Buena Planta

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Dedicated 100% gluten-free spot from the same owner as the Butcher’s Daughter across the street. This spot is perfect for brunch or dinner, and they even have a second location in Silver Lake with an even bigger menu! We ordered the breakfast burrito, quesadilla, and churros. They also have phenomenal drinks, and the patio is perfect for hanging out on a nice sunny day.”

Hugo’s Restaurant

Location: West Hollywood, California

“If you’re looking for a good spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner then Hugo’s Restaurant has a menu that checks all the boxes. This restaurant has two locations in the valley and West Hollywood. Everything on this lengthy menu is labeled gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian and they take allergies very seriously. And don’t forget about their dedicated gluten-free fryer. Every time I visit, my server always asks about allergies when taking my order. If you’re here for breakfast, order the Almond Energy Pancakes, Cinnamon Swirl French Toast, or Eggs Benedict. Later in the day, order the fried pickles or hush puppies to start, any of their pasta dishes or the vegan Reuben sandwich for an entree, and an order of sticky buns or churros for dessert!”

Nomad Lounge

Location: Lake Buena Vista, Florida

“Don’t think! Just go & get those gluten-free churros! I live in California, but when I came to WDW, I had to try so good! They come with a cream dipping sauce (not dairy-free though), or a strawberry dipping sauce is gluten-free and dairy-free.”

New York


Location: Brooklyn, New York

“Claro is a 100% gluten-free Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn. Gluten-free churros, need I say more? Update! Finally had the chance to visit in person! Claro is an amazing gluten-free restaurant, perfect for date night. It is definitely a splurge but worth it. You can choose from a four-course prefix menu. My favorite was the yellowtail tuna.”

Taqueria 27 Lehi

Location: Lehi, Utah

“The best place I ate in Utah- and they have a location in Salt Lake City as well. Only one item on the menu has gluten and that is the flour tortillas. Corn and flour tortillas warmed up on separate flat tops. Fryers are dedicated, and the batter for fried fish & fried chicken is gluten-free. For dessert, they have amazing GLUTEN-FREE CHURROS!!”
