    I went with a very large party and they still have a gluten free menu. I ordered the green Chile pork stew and skipped the tortillas that come on the side. Even though I am very sensitive, I had no reaction. It was $10 for not much food, but it was safe.

    Quality has really gone downhill. Filibertos has better food. I've never gotten sick but there are much better places to eat.

    Our server seemed to know more about the gluten-free menu than the cook did. Fortunately, our server checked with the manager to confirm ingredients. The gluten-free menu had a decent range of choices. The corn tortilla chips brought to our table when we arrived were gluten-free, but our server warned us that they were cooked in the same fryer as flour-based products. That was disappointing. All in all, it ended up being a great meal, thanks to our knowledgeable server Kate.

    Had an excellent experience here! Waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. He even took the time to concoct a fried ice cream option that was GF. (Shout Out to John T.). GF Menu was good and food and atmosphere were great!

    Really good gluten free menu! Seems like you can get jus about anything on a corn tortilla instead of flour. Even the tortilla chips are safe. My only complaint was with an issue with dairy. They brought out a plate with cheese on it, so I reminded them that I could not have dairy. So they brought a plate with no cheese but with sour cream. Again, I sent it back. They then proceeded to bring back the SAME PLATE that they simply scraped the sour cream off of. I informed them that I have a severe allergy and that was not acceptable and asked for a new plate. All said and done it was a delicious and safe meal. I would go back.

    My server was not knowledgable at all on gluten free or what was in food. Nor was she knowledgable how things were prepared. She was willing to find out and they did go above and beyond to provide safe chips for me. However, I'm extremely sensitive to MSG as well as gluten and I had a huge reaction after eating here. I did not get glutened but the food was not great. My reactions to MSG are just as terrible in different ways than gluten. So if you are like me please avoid this place.

    They don't have a gluten free menu anymore, and the staff isn't always aware of what a gluten allergy is, but by and large they're friendly and helpful. The food is good, and the prices are affordable - we eat at Macayo's frequently and recommend others do the same if they're looking for a gluten free sit-down restaurant.

    We didn't get sick but it was incredibly disappointing. For the amount of food you get it was over priced and lacked flavor. I didn't give it 1 star because we were safe eating here but I wouldn't go back.

    Update: they no longer offer a gluten free menu and cannot guarantee protection against cross-contamination. It's unfortunate they've opted to no longer service gluten free customers since they have the best Mexican food in town. (Dec 2013) To start with, you are handed a professional laminated gluten-free menu, not a copy-of-the-month allergen menu that you have to decipher and compare with a regular menu. The chips and salsa are gf, the chips are not contaminated with wheat in processing. There is a decent selection on the menu in each category to choose from. To help avoid accidental mix-ups in the kitchen they do things like "stacked enchiladas" instead of the traditional rolled. Great service at this location too. I've been dining at this location for five years and never once had poor service. Oh, if you like hotter salsa, just ask the server. They have some by request.

    No longer have a gluten-free menu. Menu items can be made gluten-free, but the food was mediocre at best.

    Great service and attentiveness on GF preparation. We had the fajitas and fish tacos with no reaction. The food was spicy, but that's a side note.

    Decent sized GF menu, I'm not celiac but am very sensitive to gluten and have never gotten sick after eating here. The stacked enchiladas are great!

    We just ate at the Macayo's at 7040 E Broadway and my husband and I are both sick. We eat Mexican food at least once a week and never have a problem, we have been wheat free for about 4 months now and we were excited to try this place out with their GF menu, NEVER AGAIN!

    Separate Glossy GF menu (not an afterthought). Was very excited to find out they had a gf offering and called ahead to check on cross contamination. They were knowledgeable and though they said they couldn't 100% guarantee no cross contamination they said they did their best. We ate there last night. I started with the chips and salsa. Yummy. Then they do stacked enchiladas for gf and rolled for non. Mine were stacked, delicious, and w/out incident. I can't wait to go back.

    Nice large GF Menu, knowledgable waiter who was able to answer ?s easily regarding cooking methods, ingredients, etc. Great service. Waiter noted with my order that I have celiac so chef would use separate fryer, gloves, etc
