    They had a gf menu also offered dairy free items. The server and the menu stated their tortilla chips are fried in a fryer that would cross contaminate them. When I told her I had celiac the server seemed knowledgeable but my dish came with tortilla chips on it and had to be sent back ( it was delivered by someone besides the server). So just double check your dish. The food tasted pretty good and I didn't get sick.

    The server basically held the hand of the cook and bartender to make certain that there was no cross-contamination risk.

    Why bother to have a Mexican restaurant that talks about how careful they are with gluten and not have a way to fry your chips so they can be gluten free - what a disappointment! Didn't bother to eat here as I want nachos.

    Their menu says they can make most dishes gluten free. I had the cheese enchiladas in the red mole rojo sauce and they substituted corn tortillas instead of the corn/flour hybrid they said they normally use. It was very tasty and a large portion that did not make me sick! The menu states the chips are not gluten free so I did not try them. I also had a Mexican Mule, which was delish!

    We have eaten at Azul twice in the last 4 months. I love their jicama pico on top of their carnitas pork bowl. They have a gluten free and a dairy free menu with a good number of options. I posted a review on my blog Alexis's Gluten Free Adventures.

    Very tasty and great GF options. Staff seems knowledgeable, however - we ordered tortillas and one of the three orders was accidentally not GF (some wheat mixture). It was our attention to the difference in color that saved us from a bad reaction.

    We had an excellent experience here! My son and I ordered the fajitas and told them we couldn't have anything cooked on the grill or that came in contact with gluten or dairy. They assured us they took these things very serious and that they would be very careful. They said they would substitute corn tortillas for the flour and that they would cook them in tinfoil on the grill (and the fajitas were cooked in a separate skillet that they brought to the table). The fajitas were delicious and so was the rice and black beans and the portions were very large. This was a definite treat for us! We are super sensitive and did not get sick. We will definitely be returning!! They had a 2-sided menu; gluten free on one side and dairy free on the other side. They helped us pick something that would work for GF and DF. Very impressed with this restaurant and it's close to our house so we can't wait to return!

    Great options and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food. I only wish I could bring my own chips in - but the corn tortillas were delicious as a substitute. Would eat here again.

    Gluten free menu had many options. Sat in bar and bartender had knowledge about what not only was gluten free but dairy free. He knew the ingredients in the guacamole which included buttermilk. Ordered a side of goat cheese with no problem. I will be back.

    This place has a lovely rustic environment. I went on margarita Monday which was 5 dollars and unbelievably fantastic. they have over 30 tequilas to choose from. the chips are fried with gluten items so you could choose to tear up some glutenfree corn tortillas with your dip or salsa. any taco can be made with a gf corn tortilla. We had the shrimp ceviche which is pineapple based. it was mild flavored. the beef lomo saltado bowl was incredibly flavorful. you could have the 1/2 rotisserie Petaluma chicken plate, or the enchiladas suiza but make sure to specify use of gf corn tortilla in this dish. the sides seem to be gluten free by description, like the cucumber salad, the golden beets, green rice, and cinnamon cranberry quinoa. ask to make sure! this is one the best Latin places I've ever eaten at. Don't pass this place up!

    The wait staff is knowledgable. The GF menu is small but worth it.
