Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill, Valencia

We loved our experience at Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill in Valencia, Ca. We got to learn about their scrumptious gluten-free menu options and here is what they had to say.

GFG MAG: How long has Sharky's been in business? How many locations and where?  

SHARKY'S: Sharky’s started in 1992 with the first location in Sherman Oaks, Ca and has 28 locations currently throughout California, Oregon and Nevada with plans to open a second Las Vegas location this summer. We will also be expanding into Rogers, Arkansas with our first location set to open this summer.

GFG MAG: What are your best-selling gluten-free menu creations? 

SHARKY'S: Our Sharky’s Quinoa Salad and Harvest Quinoa Salad are popular options for those who are gluten-free.

GFG MAG: Are your taco shells and tortilla chips 100% gluten-free? 

SHARKY'S: The corn tortillas used for our chips and tacos are 100% gluten-free. However, they are fried in the same fryer as the tostada shells, which are flour and may come into contact with gluten in the fryer. For this reason we do not list our chips and corn tortillas as gluten-free.  

GFG MAG: What steps does your kitchen staff take to avoid gluten cross contamination? For example, if applicable, separate cutting boards, specific designated fryers just for gluten-free, etc...
