Staff has an allergen list and will bring out a clean board, clean utensils, and even get ingredients from the back to make you a bowl free of gluten and cross-contamination!!! The only place I feel truly safe eating!
Get a Mexican plate, it's all gluten free ingredients in their own bowl. The refried beans are delicious. I get a plate with half veggie/half chicken. Very good.
All things are fine besides the burritos/chimichangas, which are made with flour tortillas. Tacos and Mexican plates are fine. But because the burritos are so delicious- it's a hard place to eat after going gf.
I eat here a lot. The gluten free information is hard to come by, but they replied to an email saying everything but the burrito wraps are gluten free. I get the Mexican plate (rice, beans, meat, pico de gallo) and have never had a problem.
They will show you an ingredients list for every food they have, and then get clean utensils, a clean board, and fresh ingredients from the back. No cross contamination at all!
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
the only thing you can't have is the tortillas, but they have Mexican bowls, and you can have the corn tortillas too, so tacos are ok! Rice, beans, meats, everything is gluten free and amazingly fresh and delicious.
Amazing people who truly care, and don't treat you like an inconvenience!
Do not go if you are celiac and concerned about cross contamination. No one seemed informed about what was safe or not and they were not concerned about being careful with gloves/utensils/ etc.
I was hesitant to try Mexican again after getting really sick from chipotle, but a friend recommended this place and it was a great experience! The food was delicious and fresh, the homemade lemonade is delicious, and no belly ache! Just be careful because the tortillas are not gluten free... I got a bowl to be safe.
AWFUL! they have absolutely no idea what gluten free means. When I asked if the tacos were gluten free, one employee said yes and one said no. I ended up and eating the Mexican plate and left with an extreme migraine from cross contamination. Not a place for celiacs!
It is possible to get a safe meal here (or at least, my sensitive son has not had a problem here over 30+ times) but you have to be vigilant. Ask them to change gloves and insist on starting over if one employee does it but then hands your bowl to another employee who didn't change gloves. Make sure they don't put the slice of cheese in the warmer where the flour tortillas are heated. They seem to have gotten better about it over the last year, whether because they've gotten more training or because we've been so often. We always get the Mexican plate, have not tried anything else really.
Mexican plate (kind of like burrito bowl) is good if you've never had the pleasure of eating their burritos. Otherwise it'll just never suffice. More of a tease than a good meal. But if you're new here, good and cheap meal!
One star is VERY generous. Signs everywhere saying to inform them if you have an allergy. Visited 15 minutes in line to have 2 people in a row look at me as if I were asking for a foreign object when I said I had a wheat allergy. First one said -oh, you want whole wheat? After two moe tries and two diff people ignoring the question completely, we decided that there was NO way this place could be close to safe!
Went in to eat after reviewing the allergy list online, left empty handed. I told the person in line I had a wheat allergy and asked if he could change gloves. His English wasn't very good and he picked up the corn tortillas and asked if that's what I wanted. I said yes but I can't eat those now and asked if they had more in the back. He didn't understand what I was asking and so after getting no where I left. The staff stated at me during this conversation as if I had two heads. Bad bad experience....
