Pure Taqueria now has gluten-free chips!

I love all of the taquerias in Atlanta, and how easy it is to eat gluten-free at them...except for the chips. It seems that many of them fry their chips with something else wheat-based. In these cases, I usually end up bringing my own chips and try to be all sly about it, because I don't want to feel like an outcast sitting there with my "special" chips. And then of course I need my own salsa, so others at the table don't dip their gluten-filled chips into the same bowl of salsa, contaminating me in the end.

Pure Taqueria has always had gluten-free chips...but they are not the ones that get passed to the tables for free, they were chips you had to order (and pay) separately.

Lucky for us, Pure Taqueria's chips, which were once fried with wheat-containing products are now gluten-free and fried at the beginning of the day before anything else is fried and therefore uncontaminated. I was a bit skeptical, but I am super sensitive and inhaled a basked on my own and felt great afterwards....other than a bit full with my basket of chips and dinner.

And, psst.......they have a coupon on Scoutmob now, so you can go enjoy 50% off you meal!


  1. Awesome! What else do you order at Pure Taqueria?

  2. I ordered pork tacos and a mojito...yummy!

    They do have a gluten-free menu which makes it really easy to order. They even have fish tacos (baked) on the gf menu, which is the first place I have seen fish tacos that were baked and not fried...those for the gluten-able, fried is available for you!

  3. Yay! I will have to go check it out. Thanks for the info.

  4. I'm addicted to the grilled shrimp with spicy guac sauce and their rice is very tasty as well. I used to go to Alp. location that has always fried their chips in a gf fryer (or at least that's what I was told) so I was really bummed to get the chips at the in town location before they starting frying them. This is great news that in town we can have excellent chips as well! I also love the chicken tacos there. Thanks for the info!
