Our server was very good and knowledgeable about Celiac. He suggested not to have the chips since it is a shared fryer. We got beef and shrimp tacos. Super simple and not exciting. But at least they felt prepared gf and safe.

I am celiac and I had the chicken fajitas without dairy, and they were delicious. They subbed out the regular guacamole for the dairy free guacamole. Server was very knowledgeable about allergies.

Got takeout from here tonight. Seems like they have lots of gf options and most un-fried items are, or can be made, gf. Really good food! No CC reactions!

Great for Celiac. Had the cheese dip with corn tortillas instead of chips-Amazing! Also had the chicken tacos with mashed pinto beans and their green rice. Only thing gross was the veggie chili-tastes like it came from a can. Since it is so hard for me to find Mexican food to eat, I was so happy. I am super sensitive celiac and did not get sick at all, waiter was very knowledgeable.

The gluten free menu is so confusing!! Basically very little that is ok for celiacs! I was disappointed at first but they did bring warm corn tortillas for the guac and my azul bowl was good. You will have to ask questions and make sure they know you are celiac

Chips are not gluten free since they are fried in the same fryer as wheat battered food items per the waitress when we went on 12/28/19. Also they cannot do the sweet potato or fish tacos since also fried. So for vegetarian options, quite limited and disappointing. Good margaritas though.

9/1/19 update: food is always delicious, I get the shrimp fajitas. Have never gotten sick. My new favorite drink is their gf frozen Tito’s lemonade. Amazing! Highly recommend!

1/28/18 update: You need to make sure you get the right corn tortilla. In addition to a flour tortilla (gluten), they have two corn tortillas: one is a hybrid of corn and wheat (contains gluten) and the other is 100% corn and gluten free. The unsafe hybrid is more yellowish-orange-ish while the safe gluten free one is lighter in color (more towards white). The Manager is going to order gluten free stickers to mark the outside tinfoil of the 100% gluten free one at our suggestion so no mix-ups happen. If you don't tell them you have an allergy/celiac/intolerance, they will automatically give you the hybrid one with wheat. So, saying "corn torilla" is not enough.---------------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!

Our waiter was the best. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Be sure to ask for the GF menu. Although written a little odd it was easy to figure out. Food was good. Try the Golden Organic Beet side dish!

I just ate a burrito bowl with shrimp. So far so good. Will update if I end up sick. One note- they don’t have a dedicated fryer, so no chips or sweet potatoes (??) which I was really looking forward to. Oh well. I also had an adult frozen lemonade which is made with Tito’s. It’s kinda sweet and definitely not a winter drink, but it’s good! I’m interested in trying the enchiladas and a couple other dishes. They also have a nice fire pit in front that you can sit around while eating and listening to live music.

Knowledgeable staff. Tri-tip taco was one of the best I've ever had.

We ate here twice. First night was fantastic. Food, service, live music were great. It was cold out and they even brought us blankets! It was so good that we came back the next night

Second night, service was slow to nearly nonexistent, each item we ordered came out wrong. One didn't come out at all. We had to ask about it. The tacos were on plain corn tortillas. Uninteresting at best. While they have gf options, there are restrictions that make it more worth your while to try a different place.

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.

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!
