They have a list of what allergens are present in each dish, only things with gluten are beans and soup, some of the specials contain gluten but you may be able to order it without. The rotisserie chicken is delicious and there are plenty of sides to choose from. The fryer is not used to cook anything containing gluten. Since there are few items that do contain gluten you should be fairly safe. It doesn’t seem like their is much risk for cross contamination.

Staff did not seem extremely knowledge on GF but they had allergen menu taped to where you order. Everything is GF except black beans and a soup. Since majority of menu is gluten free, I feel contamination risk is low. The chicken, plantains, and rice were delicious!

The chicken here is absolutely delicious! They don’t put anything with gluten in the fryer so that means the fries and plantains are safe. The beans do contain gluten and are on the same line of food with everything else (similar to chipotle). I’m extremely sensitive and have eaten here several times successfully. Highly recommend getting a side of the green vinaigrette dressing too.

Black beans have gluten (barley) so be aware, other than that there are so many options for celiac! Chicken, plantains, rice, yucca are all gf and absolutely delicious. Chicken is free of the top 10 allergens. We have been coming to this place for years and it is the perfect place for families (my kids love everything), gf people, allergy people, and even vegans! (We were told all side dishes are vegan.)

Everything I get is GF! There are many more options I don't get as well. (Rice, beans, plantains, etc..) I get the roasted chicken with amazingly crispy fries, deliciously seasoned green beans, and a salad with the best cilantro dressing you've ever had. They also have two delicious side sauces, a green one with a spicy kick and one yellow one similar to mustard and mayo mix. I am GF and dairy free so I LOVE my options here.

The most delicious chicken!!!! My only critique is that the woman who took our order was not informed. She initially told us we could only have the green beans as a side. I was skeptical as they also had white rice and green beans that I thought for sure were gf. When I asked her specifically about each item, after checking she said they were gf including the French fries. And thank goodness because the fries were so good!!

Chicken and many sides are gluten free. The sauces contain soy so I was advised against eating them. Plenty of food. Had the chicken with rice and green beans plus maduros (sweet plantains) my son had yucca fries too.
