    I went to Ajo Al's because of the reviews, I have celiac. My server understood celiac, "my roommate has celiac". We had quite the extensive conversation related to the importance of GF and cross contamination. I ordered a Mexican pizza from the appetizer section on GF menu. As I began to eat the pizza I could not believe the pizza was made on corn tortillas, the server ensured it was but agreed to confirm. To my horror, the server returned apologizing that my appetizer had indeed been served on a flour tortilla. One strike and you're out, no second chances.

    Fabulous! We will come here again when we are in town! It was so yummy! We had 4 people with us who were gluten free and no one got sick and our food was wonderful!

    Great for celiacs! They now have a dedicated gluten free menu and a knowledgeable staff. I had a skinny margarita (or two), chips, salsa, flaunted, and refried beans. It was all delicious. Very happy to have found a celiac friendly sit down Mexican restaurant.

    Ajo Al's doesn't have a GF menu, but their servers know what they're doing. I've had them run back to ask the cook what was in dishes before so they could advise me properly on the safety. I've eaten there regularly and never had a contamination issue. Just changing out flour tortillas for corn and informing the server of my celiac has been all they needed to provide awesome food.I do miss the fried ice cream though.
