    I have eaten here twice and loved it both times. However, I will say that my experience was different the second time with a different waiter (hence the four stars). The first time (lunch), Ruth was my waitress and she was PHENOMENAL. It was the first time I'd eaten at a restaurant since finding out I have to be GF that I felt like a VIP instead of a burden. The second time (dinner), another waiter served us and while he was friendly and accommodating, he simply was not as knowledgeable about gluten and gluten free items on the menu. I would definitely ask for Ruth, but if she's not available, this is still a great place.

    The service, the food, the Redbridge gf beer!!!!! All amazingly excellent. It's not often that I can enjoy a meal out. Today, I indulged. Ask for Ruth. She was lovely an knowledgeable of the menu and gluten free options. Did I mention that they HAVE a Gluten Free Menu??? They do!

    Amazing GF Mexican food! Separate Chips & Salsa, friends said the GF Chips were better than theirs. Enchiladas Verde were flavorful, fresh and hot. Little bit of a wait, but well worth it.

    We have eaten here at least 20 times and haven't gotten sick. They have GF corn chips or plantains. Large GF menu. Paleo menu, too. Ceviche is the best I've ever eaten. Ask for Ruth if you go there. She's been the best server so far when it comes to ordering gf.

    Very extensive GF menu. The waiter asked me if I wanted "celiac" chips when they brought out the chips and salsa :) Very good food and busy restaurant!

    Cross contamination is an issue here! I was sick before I even walked out of the restaurant. I didn't care for the enchilada sauce.

    The atmosphere and outdoor patio was lovely and very friendly service. Gluten free menu and server seemed educated and followed through on communication with the chefs. Chicken enchilada was quite tasty as was the salsa! The tamal was dry and lacked flavor and the gluten free chips were stale and bland. I'd go back for the enchilada or try an entree but I'll take my own chips next time.

    too much cross contamination potential to be safe

    Has gluten free menu, but you must ask for special tortillas that aren't very good. Had two okay experiences with slow service

    What a fabulous restaurant with a huge, dedicated gluten free menu that goes the extra mike to indicate "celiac" safe. The food was incredible, prices reasonable and service impeccable! Moses and Oscar were especially personable. The menu featured favorites like enchiladas and flan but had others like table side guacamole and celiac safe chips and salsa. Great place!!

    The printed menu at Paloma Blanca is as extensive as the regular menu and they know their stuff! Excellent upscale Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Lovely setting to enjoy your meal. Dont forget to order one of their fantastic margaritas.

    This was the best restaurant I have eaten ate since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Their celiac menu was amazing! The flavor was perfect, the cost was very reasonable, and the service was excellent. Will eat here again and strongly recommend it to people who need to eat gluten free.
