Here is the complete Chili’s gluten free menu.
Chili’s does not claim that their menu is gluten free, but instead is gluten-friendly meaning that the items listed below contain less than 20 ppm of gluten which is the FDA standard. That said, when ordering off of the Chili’s gluten-friendly menu, please note that there is a high risk of cross contamination due to shared fryers and surfaces.

Not to be a downer, but how do you know things like the ribs and meats with spices and et cetera dont have gluten in them? Did you used to work there? Have you seen the packaging? Sometimes there is gluten in the spices or preservatives of chain restaurant meat-I once got stopped by the manager of a California Dreamin’ restaurant because the chicken ON THE GF MENU actually contained gluten, so I was curious.
Hey Jamie, I emailed Chilis for their complete gluten free listings and I also checked out their official gluten free menu and ingredients. According to Chilis, the meats with spices are gluten free. However, I do understand where you are coming from because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen spices have some kind of ingredient in it that has gluten, yet the menu item is still considered gluten. So for Chilis, I’m just literally going off their word and hoping that they are true about their gluten free menu. Hopefully this helps Jamie. (p.s. those are great questions and you aren’t being a downer lol)
I’ve always been told that bleu cheese contains gluten. Are you sure about the bleu cheese dressing being gluten free?
According to Chili’s, their bleu cheese dressing is gluten free. However, I do agree that almost all bleu cheese contains gluten. So I’m not sure is Chili’s don’t know what they are talking about, or if they actually do have a gluten free bleu cheese dressing. Hopefully this helps Alicia!
While there is some degree of truth that blue cheese may have gluten in it (from the mold spores grown on bread), many brands of blue cheeses and dressings are gluten free, including Wishbones. Of course, I would double check before eating it, but blue cheese does not inherently contain gluten.
Are the chips at Chili’s GF yet?? If not, why? It’s there main draw for customers to choose to come there over other restaurants, especially at happy hour!!
I believe they fry them there in a shared fryer.
I was just at Chili’s today and got their Fajita Trio without the Fajita’s. Anyone else try this? I was just recently diagnosed with Celiac Diseased so I’m hoping this doesn’t give me any problems.
So far so good, Jennifer?
Adam, I was 100% fine eating the Fajita Trio:) I found there are many things I can eat that most Celiacs cannot. I guess I’m lucky:)
You are very lucky Jennifer! Thanks for sharing 🙂
How do you know you are “fine” after “eating things other folks with celiac disease cannot”?!! That is impossible. Gluten is gluten, and if the slightest bit of gluten is consummed by one with celiac disease, the immune system attacks to damage & attempt to destroy the small intestine. Celiac disease damage can be silent without obvious detectable symptoms. The damage is relentless whether you sense it or not. Please proceed with intense caution when dining out! Cross contamination is a huge problem in restaurant kitchens! ….and ingredients can change overnight! Read the fine print on Chili’s GF menu….
It is possible that you don’t experience symptoms from small amounts of gluten; however anybody with Celiac disease will have some damage from gluten even if you don’t experience symptoms.
I too have no issue w the fajitas -without the flour tortillas.
I had the ribs off of the GF menu as “original” style with mashed potatos , no gravy, today at Chili’s. I had and am still having a horrible reaction. I had never had tobs put due to the BBQ in places never being GF. i was completly red, blotchy and having trouble speaking. I asked them to show me the label for the BBQ sauce and rub but was refused. The manager brought me a GF menu, the one I ordered off of and told me if it was on the GF menu it was GF. That just isn’t true. The manager went on to tell me everything that he thought was Gluten…like eggs, nuts and he offered me milk to stop the obvious allergic reaction taking over my body. Never again. Not trusting the GF menu at Chili’s!
That’s horrible Karen, I hope you’re alright though! GF education and training is still a huge issue in most restaurants. If only it were in their corporate training…
Sorry, never had “ribs out” . Stupid iPhone
No worries Karen! #AutocorrectSucksSometimes
I love their queso and chips…I am assuming that they are NOT gluten free since they are not on the list. Please tell me I am wrong!
Depends on if cross contamination bothers you. Im am gluten intolerant not celiac and the chips dont bother me, but they do share a frier with things like fried chicken.
I have enjoyed the margarita chicken once a week in the past but now they have changed the marinade or brine. It contains some seasoning that isn’t good for me. (Celiac) Be aware!
I have never been able to eat the margarita chicken. I asked the management and they told me it was not gluten free. However the monterey chicken is. I am a Celiac so I always get the gluten free menu and then ask many questions and varify. Then emphasize that I am an “absolute no gluten”.
The chips at our chilis in az are not gluten free because they use a combination of corn and flour tortilla chips
I just wanted to say because on your website’s WARNING! message it asks to leave a message if something is wrong, and just a head’s up; their chicken sometimes is NOT safe. I got cross contaminated last week and am STILL suffering from it. Their chicken is definitely delicious, but it was fried in something that was not 100% safe, at least I am assuming that is what was wrong, because I informed the waitress I have celiac and needed my meal to be prepared safely and they did my meal perfect. My Mom got chicken and fried veggies, supposedly also safe, and I ate some of her chicken. I’m pretty sure this is what did me in. I am always VERY cautious about EVERYTHING I eat and rarely eat out because I’ve been cross contaminated too many times. I am very very very sensitive to gluten. Maybe those who do not have celiac and just a slight sensitivity would be safe. I ate that chicken knowing it might not be a good idea because I didn’t ask what it was fried in, so it’s kind of my fault. So just a head’s up!
Also a friendly reminder to never let what other non-sensitive or non-celiac’s say to influence you to eat something you know MAY not be safe. I was persuaded by friends that it “probably was just fine, it’s only chicken”.
We were told the “potato hamburger buns” were gluten free to day by the Chiles manager. She said she looked the ingredients up and it is a Chiles proprietary recipe.
I’ve worked at Chilis for over 3 years now and there is an in house GF menu, you just have to ask for it. Also, on the new ziosks at every table there is a GF menu under dietary menus that everyone can look at. Do not eat anything fried as it all uses the same oil. The chips are a flour/corn mix and even though the nachos are made on corn tortillas, they are fried prior in the same gluten-laden oil. If you are allergic or extremely intolerant and you go in on a friday or Saturday night the sad truth is there is a high chance of cross contamination no matter what :/ days that are less busy you have a better chance of having a safe and delicious meal. Just my experience!
Chili’s does have a gluten free menu
I’ve had some success with the shrimp and fish tacos they have when available but I have to ask for corn tortillas instead and request they take gluten precautions. But I’m one of those people who a crumb from a crouton isn’t going to send into immediate reaction either and I could just pick them off my salad, as long as I don’t eat the whole thing it’s fine. I’ve yet to be given a gluten free menu even asking for it though, the menu changes really often too, and so it’s not one of my top stops when safer and much more predictable options are available that I know I’m not going to be taking a risk of getting sick on.
