Updated in 2021! Thank you to Amy for emailing in a recommendation for Pancheros Mexican Grill. It’s a build-your-own Tex Mex chain, similar to Chipotle and Qdoba. They’re famous for making their own tortillas onsite, but alas, those tortillas contain dairy. Nonetheless, Pancheros has more than enough dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan menu items to keep everyone satisfied.
