    We were SO excited to find this hidden gem today after the U of M game! The food was absolutely delicious & the owner came out to our table personally, multiple times! He made us feel so welcome- we can't wait to go back! He also mentioned that if you have a severe gluten allergy they will even take extra precautions, which I truly appreciated. The best part was that the food was authentic & delicious and this GFMexicanGirl is very picky, but my husband & I were both impressed!

    Friendly staff and owner. I ordered the tamales (1 pork, 1 chicken) with rice and black beans and a side of chips and guacamole. There are so many gluten free options and they are very knowledgable about celiac disease and cross contamination. We will be back!

    Ate here with no issues. The tamales are divine. Chelas also has a station in the U of M hospital cafeteria that I've eaten at many times. The owners are there and always reassure me of their gf items and their understanding of cross contamination.

    Great Mexican food. Most food is naturally gluten free, but make sure to tell them you need it gluten free.

    Staff seems knowledgeable about gluten. Most of their products are made without gluten ingredients; the main exception is the burritos and quesadillas for which they can substitute corn tortillas.

    Even though most of the menu is GF, it is important to tell them that you want your food prepared GF. Good food @ reasonable price.

    Nothing on menu to indicate what's gluten free. Menu doesn't even distinguish between corn and flour tortillas. When I asked about gluten-free, I was told only to order items on corn torts—no mention was made of anything else.

    Wow,flavorful authentic Mexican food! I have Celiac Diease and am highly reactive - I have had no problems since eating there yesterday. The food was wonderful! Most of the menu is GF and happily - SOY FREE TOO! The best part, the prices were incredibly reasonable and not more expensive because it was GF. It was the best tasting meal I have had out in years. Very family friendly, has an old diner feel, not the romantic date place, but you can order ahead and take it to go. Yum!
