GF menu very limited unless you like fish. You can only have the ground beef, as all of the other meats are marinated. Beans and rice are not GF. You have to be very careful as none of the help is trained and will bring out glutened sauces with gluten free food. The only sauce you can have on an enchilada is the sour cream sauce which is my least favorite of them all.
They have a full GF Menu but an untrained staff. They sent out gluten food and got everyone sick! The manager didn't seem to understand the severity of the mistake.
Was very specific with the server- he didn't understand gluten - I asked for gluten free chips - he brought me the ones with gluten - I was soooo sick!!!!
excellent food. gluten free menus. they go out of their way to make sure everything you get is gluten free.
I went last night with my family and the food was delicious. the server didn't know to much but someone informed her of what it was because when she came back around she was so serious and concerned about making sure she didn't get me sick. I had bacon wrapped shrimp fajita without the nacho cheese stuffed inside, with cilantro lime rice and lettuce leaf instead of the tortilla. they said that the corn tortillas are not gf. flan was delicious as well!!! I'm a extremely sensitive celiac and had no reaction.
Had a great experience here. Good margarita, loved the salsa selections and so excited that they bring gluten free chips on request! The chips weren't great, really, but who cares - they're just a platform for salsa. Entrees were good but I would stick with their nicer dinner specialities; don't think I'd come here for a basic enchilada or burrito plate. Great service and cute atmosphere, too.
They offer a gluten free menu and the service was great! They even offered gluten free chips! We would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Excellent food. The only place I can eat Mexican food. Several good options on the gf menu. I like the cilantro lime rice and the bacon wrapped shrimp or pork fajitas.The salmon is also good. They will bring baked chips if requested. My favorite fresh guacamole. Pete is an excellent waiter if he is there, he only works part time mainly weekend nights.
Very little gf options. Waitress didn't tell us chips were fried with gluten until after we ate them. Food was worse tasting than taco bell and one taco was $3.99. Everyone in our party asked for no refried beans because they contained lard and half of them got beans anyway. Will NOT be going back there.
Have eaten here before and most recently on 4/22. Small number of GF choices but the waiter seemed to understand the allergy. They do NOT have a dedicated fryer (earlier post said they do). They were able to do baked GF chips which were ok. Overall a good experience but not great. Didn't get sick.
I've always had a very good experience at Abuelo's and have eaten there several times. The gluten free menu could have more choices....but then once I tried the bacon wrapped shrimp fajita's I doubt I will ever try anything else anyway. Those are awesome!! Every staff member I have spoken to has been knowledgeable. I even asked about the mints to be sure they were GF, they said they had called the factory and confirmed that they were safe.
Not gluten free!!! Only gluten sensitive. They accidentally plated my food wrong putting gluten containing rice on my plate under my meat & veggies. They just scraped it off. Didn't use a fresh plate. I emailed & they were to get back to me & never did! Definitely not worth going back. Ever! Also a sauce that was suppose to go on my meat didn't. The waiter said it contained gluten. So I couldn't have it even though it was on the gluten sensitive menu. Either the menu needs to be changed and/or the staff needs to be educated. It's not a safe place to eat.
They have a separate menu, the staff is clueless....ordered off the gluten free menu, first bite into my side dish I realize it's something that was not on the gluten free menu, asked the waiter and he quickly snatched up my plate and ran off with it, too bad I already took a bite :( my family was done eating before my food was even out....yuck!
Service and food has always been great the many times I have eaten here. Staff always double checks to make sure the tortillas for the fajitas are gf. I eat vegetarian as well gf (celiac) and the kitchen has always accommodated my requests for different veggies to be used for the fajitas. Portions are huge and I always have enough leftovers for a second meal.
Although I had no problem with what I ate, the waitress was clueless. When I asked about the flan, she said she's have to read the ingredients list, but assured me if there was any gluten, it'd be so small as to not affect me. I asked her to please check anyways and all was fine. However, she seemed to not understand that ANY is not okay.
Separate, detailed menu for gluten intolerant individuals. I got the chicken fajitas with romaine leafs and they were incredible! They even baked my chips to ensure there was no cross-contamination. Super friendly and accommodating, which is something I rarely see when ordering at a restaurant.
One of my favorite restaurants prior to Celiac diagnosis. The GF menu is fairly limited and pretty much the most expensive items on the menu. I've had the fajitas and the tamales and the flan. All are tasty. Wait staff all said they would make note and tell the kitchen staff.
new to GF diet ... my mom tried the 3 soft corn tacos with beans & cilantro lime rice. I had the salmon santa Cruz with rhe cilantro lime rice & seasonal veggies. my salmon was delicious. my didnt rave about her tacos but we both loved the rice. waited a bit for Gluten sensitive chips. they were pretty awful. don't waste your time on those.
wonderful food and service! our server was very well educated on their gluten free options
My wife ordered from the gluten free menu. Her dish came out not gluten free; with regular chips! When she asked about the chips, the food runner took the dish back to the kitchen returning a minute or two later. We asked if it was the same dish with the chips removed and she told us yes! The manager never came to the table! Staff does not seem trained and the general attitude does not inspire confidence in celiac sufferers!
The manager told me not to eat there since it's not really gluten free!
Had the beef tacos. I enjoyed it very much! Last time I went there they were very busy and I got sick
My waiter was very kind and probably went back to the kitchen 5 times to double check my questions. Just tread lightly here and ask if you are uncertain. I found out the chips are NOT cooked in a dedicated fryer, but the waiter had the cooks bake the chips in a different pan. Although, not as tasty, it was a nice effort.
I'm a sensitive Celiac (I explained this) and I ordered the tamales, lime cilantro rice and vegetables with out seasoning. The vegetables looked like it had seasoning on them so I didn't eat them. I did however eat the Gluten free chips, which I was assured where prepared and cooked in an area and oven that was only used for gluten free items, the tamales and the cilantro lime rice oh and the salsa. I'm not sure where the gluten was but I got sick. It wasn't too bad so I'm guessing it was a contamination issue.
This restaurant is NOT gluten free. Their chips are fried with gluten products. The server said nothing on the menu is considered gluten free. They have a "gluten-sensitive" menu meaning they don't purposely put gluten in it, but everything is open to contamination. No separate oils, cooking utensils, pans, or prepping areas.
My server had no idea what gluten was. They do have a gluten sensitive menu but it is very limited. No chicken or steak at all. They did offer me baked corn chips since the fried chips use the same as the flour but they are horrible. No taste at all, not even salted, and they are chewy.
All 3 times I have gone I was told something new on their gf menu really wasn't. Like it was fried with gluten foods. I should have figured out they made me sick the second time. The third time I barely had any options left.
Beavercreek, OH I noticed some negative reviews on how they had few choices. If you live in a bigger city then YES they have limited choices, but if you live in an area where many are unaware of gluten then it's great. I recommend the shrimp fajitas!!
The have a gluten sensitive menu that has great options. When waiter was notified of gluten allergy, he immediately put an order in for their baked chips and kept them coming for us. The manager also came to us to make sure I was able to find something I would enjoy on the provided menu. Great experience and no issues!! Had the soft tacos. Fantastic!
This is ok most of the time. They do have a gf menu, and most of the servers we've had have an awareness of the gf menu. They will bring out baked chips on request. We seem to keep going there anyways until we noticed a pattern: we always order the chicken nuggets for our son, and a few times they have come out raw in the middle. Um, gross. After a few occasions of that we stopped going.
The waiter was exceptional and even explained (without me asking) how my food was prepared to make sure there is not cross contamination. The menu is limited but the pork fajitas were really good. They bake the chips instead of frying them to ensure that they aren't cross contaminated. The gm came to our table.
