Celiac-friendly Mexican fast food. There's no gluten free menu, but I've had great success with several menu items, namely Baja tacos made with corn tortillas, any "bare style" burrito, and their rice, beans, and salsas. Be sure to request no chips with your order though. The chips are fried in the same oil as some gluten items.
Went here with my gluten-eating significant other with no intention of ordering anything. When I asked the woman who took his order if there was anything gluten free, she looked at me blankly for a bit before offering me any of the tacos (which are not all gluten free). Will not be eating here, at least not at this location.
Baja does NOT have gluten free meat! They use soy sauce. I found this out after asking and the checker and chef told me it does not have wheat. I asked what is in it and he said soy sauce, I told the chef we can’t eat that and he proceeded to tell me it was ok, no wheat. I asked him to show me the soy sauce and sure enough it does have wheat. There are very few things on their menu that do not have wheat. Do NOT eat here is you can not have gluten.
The kid at the register had no concept about gluten free. I asked if they could use fresh lettuce and other toppings so I wouldn’t be cross contaminated and was told they couldn’t. I wasn’t about to risk it. This place isn’t celiac safe.
All food is made to orderFlavorfulHad Baja style chicken tacosRice is GF & yummy (They only use tomato purée)Black beansDid NOT get sick3stars is because:Food was cold No GF MENU /considerations Can’t eat chips (no des fryer)
I told them I had an allergy to wheat a few times to drive the point home, looked at their allergen menu online to see what was GF, ordered a Baja Bowl, and with the first bite had a reaction. I do not believe they even changed gloves or did any other steps to try to prevent cross contamination. DO NOT EAT HERE!
