    They do have a gluten free menu with several choices although when my lunch arrived the tortillas looked very light in color - like flour. I asked the server to verify that my plate was GF and he had no idea. He called the manager over and she stated "yes, we put the a sauce on the side because it has tomorrow's in it".... Yikes! Eventually it was determined safe for me to eat. I can't speak to ill affects I took a glinted ease to clam my paranoia. Food was okay.

    The staff at Pappasito's Willowbrook was careless and made my son and I sick yesterday. We were part of a 16 person group for a family birthday party. At the Pappasito's on 290 in Houston, we have been able to safely eat out. At that location, the waitress brought the kitchen manager to speak with us as soon as we mentioned gluten free. At the Willowbrook Mall location, we were given gluten free menus by the hostess when asked. The waiter seemed dismissive. When we asked for baked chips and a separate bowl of salsa, he had a staff member bring it to us. Many of the staff members who serve chips and salsa speak little English. When the chip basket that my son and I were sharing was dwindling, we asked for more baked chips and salsa. The staff member assigned to bring the second basket brought us the wrong chips. They weren't the regular chips and they looked like baked chips. My son, who is 14 and devours food, stopped eating the chips right away because his stomach hurt. When the waiter came back around, he noticed that they had brought us cerveza chips instead of baked chips. Cerveza is Spanish for beer. I don't know if the chips actually had beer in them. The may have just been the chips served at the bar. They told my husband, while I was sick in the bathroom, that those chips shared a fryer with gluten. The manager was appalled and very apologetic. If you need to eat at this location, I would recommend asking for a manager from the beginning. If you are choosing a Pappasito's location in Houston at which to dine, I would recommend the 290 location. I will never trust this location for a safe meal.

    Gluten-free menu and they'll do a la carte if you're not needing a huge meal! Very friendly staff. Let me know the regular chips were not GF but they could bring me some of needed. Manager even came out to assure me that my meal would be completely GF.

    Great GF menu. Manager always comes to the table to personally discuss the menu and choices. Very accommodating to create a GF kids dish. Their regular chips are not GF, but they bring GF baked chips upon request.

    When I told them I had celiac, the manager came and she asked what I was hungry for. She went through the menu with me and explained what they could do to accommodate. They were very knowledgeable and accommodating for me! The food was nothing short of amazing, seriously delicious! Especially for an airport! Best did i had the entire vacation! I really wish we had one of these restaurants closer but I will definitely be flying through this airport again, just for this food!

    Great GF experience! Randall, the floor manager, explained how they avoid cross contamination with items that contain gluten and also reassured me that several people who require GF accommodations dine at this location. Make sure your corn chops are the baked ones -- not the fried ones. I had a tasty GF chicken enchilada and my GF dining guest had a GF chicken fajita. They have the best corn flour tortillas! The garlic white wine butter sauce makes the fajitas unique and delicious! Can't wait to return. Highly recommend
