So I just discovered this gem and am in love. We went there on a Friday night. While our waiter was not the most knowledgeable on what parts of a meal might contain the gluten he kept saying he would ask and when he turned the order in he would type it in as GLUTEN-FREE. (I was asking about a dish that had some type of cream over it) While it was not very busy, except for Chipotle, I have NEVER gotten my food as fast as it came out here. I would guess 5 minutes but that just sounds preposterous. I got shrimp and spinach stuffed chicken. WOW. Talk about melt in your mouth delicious. Hubby got carne asada. It was perfection. I got a couple of sangria margaritas even though I didn't see them on the menu. They have a lot of margarita flavors. Their chips came with two different red salsas that were both delicious and had that "made in-house" flavor. There was a live band playing some latin type music. Selena came to mind. I was extremely sad that more people were not enjoying this restaurant that night. Check it out! The food was amazing!
Our waiter A. J. took time to ask kitchen staff about ingredients so I would not have a reaction. Yes, menu is meat heavy for Celiacs, which sucks for me as CD and a vegetarian, but the 1 vegetarian GF item, avocado and artichoke enchiladas, were o.k. The only GF enchilada sauce is the tomatillo sauce which is really sour. Tried a margarita. Bartender was really on his game and knew the triple sec was not GF. Tried the mango margarita anyway, but was disappointed as it was really bitter without the triple sec. Even the guacamole has too much lime juice making it sour too. I agree with previous posts that it is really expensive for what we get on the GF menu.
Just went here over the weekend and had a great experience! The chips and salsa are so delicious. I don't eat meat, and I usually end up with the same meal at most Mexican restaurants (veggie fajitas). But they have a gf and vegetarian item on their menu and it was amazing! Loved that I could get something different, and that everything on the menu was labeled whether it was gf or not.
Expensive for the amount of gluten free options on the menu. Everything is marked on the menu but the only meat that is gluten free is the chicken. Chips & salsa are gluten free and delicious. I have Celiac Disease and enjoyed the food; just be wary of the cost.
We ordered chicken fajitas to go, we didn't get any cheese or lettuce to put on the fajitas. Also the fajitas weren't cooks like the normal fajita you expect the chicken looked like the kind of chicken you would put on a salad. I didn't get sick but I don't think we will be back, disappointed after the great reviews.
Ambience: great Wait staff: perfect Chips and guac: perfect Margarita: 3/5 Food: Meh
I HIGHLY recommend Cantina Laredo! I have never been treated so well I am not only gluten free but dairy and soy as well. The Manager (Jason) personally came to our table to ask what I was interested in so I told him something with chicken. He personally made my meal they made sure to clean the grill and the sautée pans they would use to make my meal. It was out of this world delicious shrimp stuffed chicken with spinach and tomatillo sauce with a side of asparagus. Also had an amazing waiter named Gavin. If you are in Nashville and looking for Mexican Cantina Laredo is definitely the place to go!!
Food, atmosphere, service are all excellent. I may have had some cross contamination following my visit. GF menu is limited, but offers interesting choices. if I don't there again without the reaction, I'll upgrade my rating. my family LOVES this place. NOT especially kid friendly. UPDATE: they now have a dedicated fryer for their starter chips and their tanleside guacomole is fantastic! Upgrading them from 3 stars to 4 immediately due to improved awareness of GF needs. Always discuss your choices with server, they can modify many dishes!
Chips are safe and they clearly state on the menu what can be made gluten free. They even have a gluten free dessert option (flan) which was delicious.
These guys are on top of their education about Celiac Disease (and other food allergies). I ordered a margarita and tacos (listed as gluten free). I told them I had Celiac. The manager came over to our table to say they cannot 100% cross contamination would my occur but they would do their very best. And then, they were highly concerned about my margarita. Apparently Triple Sec (unless it's Hiram Walker), is NOT gluten free. They said they would feel a lot more comfortable if they could replace it with a guaranteed gluten free liquor. They remade it and have me a new one. The chips are gluten free and I've always enjoyed the tacos. But I am floored by the the lengths the staff has gone to provide excellent service. Not only are they aware of it, but they actually taught me something! And I keep up with stuff. I highly recommend them.
I do not think new staff is trained very well on allergies and there is definitely cross contamination. Yummy, but I got sick.
There's a dedicated fryer for the corn chips, and the menu clearly lists what items can be made gluten free. I got tacos with beans and rice, which came to the table quickly, and was tasty enough. The prices are reasonable.
I had the gluten free menu. told the wait staff three times I had celiacs. they asked me if any of the ingredients in my dish were gluten free or not.... as if I know what's in the sauces? the kitchen procedures for Gfree prep...? perhaps not suprising that I got sick before we even left the restaurant. had heard good things. dissappointing
Staff was super knowledgeable and the manager even over-saw the food prep. Last review was from 2011, they've wised up since. They told me the corn tortillas were fine, but still got a taco salad, super good.
I ate at the one in Terminal B. The menu is marked with a few option to ask your server about if you want GF. Chips are fried in contaminated oil and even the corn tortillas used in several of the GF labeled meals are dipped in same oil to make them soft. Waitress was confused when asked what really was GF for someone with an allergy. Ended up with a mango and chicken salad which was very good but I was disappointed in the lack of genuine GF options.
Quick & good. Brisket tacos, black beans, chips
This place was fabulous! One of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at. Lots of GF options, plus vegetarian and a couple vegan options too--which was a plus for me. Our waitress was very knowledgeable which is always reassuring when you need to eat GF.
Although the restaurant has gluten free options, it is not Celiac friendly. Our server said they could not guarantee that even the gluten free options on the menu were not cross-contaminated. The tortilla press was used for both flour tortillas and corn tortillas.
Awesome Mexican food! I highly recommend. Every time we come to DFW airport we hope we have a lay over so we can enjoy the food. They have an extensive amount of gluten free menu items with chips and salsa to munch on before our meal.
Great gluten free Mexican food, I like their fish tacos 😊.
New menu with quite a few new options. I still stick with the Taco Barbacoa. Yum
Love that the chips were gluten-free. The server was very friendly and helpful. Even the kitchen manager came to the table and was very nice. The ahi tuna tacos with guacamole on the side was fantastic and the flan was really good too. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I was not completely comfortable here as a newly diagnosed celiac. First, the manager could not find the gluten free menu. When asking the waitress about the seasoning in the tableside guacamole (which was DELICIOUS) she assured me it had no dairy. Well, that's lovely, but I don't have an issue with dairy. There were only 2 entrees marked gluten free on their regular menu, both shrimp dishes. So I ordered the chili relleno with shrimp. The cheese they use on it has flour in it, which I didn't realize, so I picked at a sad, dry stuffed pepper with no cheese. The servers were sweet, but I got the vibe that they are not completely prepared for a customer like me. Every time something was brought out from the kitchen, I got a little nervous. I also didn't advocate for myself enough and did not ask if they have seperate prep spaces, etc. for the GF food. Which was my mistake.
Was a very good meal. There are gluten free options on the main menu indicated by a gray triangle, only two of the main courses have the gluten free symbol. I asked our waitress and she said any of the taco options could also be made gluten free by changing to corn tortilla. I chose the chicken taco gf and it was awesome! Several of the apps have the gf triangle.
