    I didn't get sick eating at the location on UES 80s but I did contact the restaurant by EMAIL after reading a few negative reviews. They revealed that the chips are not in a dedicated fryer therefore "not really gluten free" and the salsa is made with peppers canned with soy sauce. Sucks not having a reliable Mexican spot in my neighborhood. Not worth risking.

    The staff has awareness of food allergies. GF menu was available. My daughter has celiac and also has a dairy allergy. She had the carne asada. The waiter told us that the rice has some butter. We had no issues. Though they are careful about cross-contact (aka cross-contamination), the guacamole appears to be prepared on the same area as the wood oven where the flour tortillas are baked. )

    The server was very knowledgeable and gluten-free options are clearly marked on the menu. The chips are GF as are the guacamole and green salsa. Lots of options. Smaller portions on some items but great food and service!

    The food was delicious but the service was disappointing from a GF perspective. We initially asked what items were GF and were told they were denoted on the menu. When ordering the waitress scolded me for not reiterating that it needs to be GF which was fine since I should have. Later we ordered guacamole and it was also listed on the menu as gluten free. It came with salsa which the waitress confirmed was GF even though this app said it wasn't. After eating the guacamole the waitress came back and said not only was the salsa not gluten free but it was also in the guacamole we had ordered and had been eating. Very unprofessional to confirm two items were GF when they were not without as much as an apology.

    Very nice waiter. But definitely not a celiac friendly restaurant. There is soy sauce in their salsa so he offered green salsa which was good. I wanted fried food and their only dedicated fryer was for tortilla chips. I felt mislead by their description on this app.

    Amazing food with so many GF options! The queso fundido w/chorizo, oh my goodness; it'll come with corn tortillas once you tell your server you're GF. My celiac kids feasted and were so happy. Excellent service and the margaritas are delightful too!

    We had an amazing dinner here. I'm the only person who has to eat gluten free, but even the gluten eaters enjoyed their meals.

    Great place, yesterday was my first time there. As soon as I mentioned "gluten free" the waiter made absolutely sure to ask the kitchen if every dish he was bringing was gluten free, that besides having a lot of dishes clearly identified as being gluten free, made might night. Everybody was extremely nice. My friend didn't even notice I picked this place because of my issue with gluten :). Conveniently located in front of a subway stop and with nice happy crowd. I has become one of my places to go.

    They for sure understand GF. However there was an appetizer marked on the appetizer menu that our server alerted us (proactively) was not really GF. The need to have the menu reprinted. The server was extremely knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. Very tasty and excellent food.

    We were really pleased with the quality of the food here, despite being steps off Times Square. Actually ended up being one of our favorites for the trip. Nice warm environment for a pre-show dinner. We went post show and were a bit rushed with the service, but it was still good. Solid choice for higher end sit down restaurant. Gf options marked on menu.

    The food was not only GF but delicious, as were the cocktails. My GF child loved the chicken tacos, which they scaled down in spices for the kids. Staff friendly and helpful with making selections & customizing our meals for our CD and allergy-plagued family.

    This is excellent Mexican food, and most of their menu is gluten free. The waiters understand right away if you have issues with cross contamination. Definitely recommend and is great with celiac disease.

    Menu is about 85% gluten free. What's not can easily be adjusted. First rate service, as well. 5 stars!

    Fabulous!! Our waiter was very familiar with Celiac and gluten. What he was unsure of he easily checked and I felt very confident I was getting a safe meal. He was able to recommend two different tequilas for a margarita and it was wonderful! The homemade chips are made in a dedicated fryer so are safe and delicious. I would recommend the guac! I had the carne asada tacos and was not disappointed.
