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.

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!

Their Baja-style tacos are made with corn tortillas, the food is always fresh and tasty. Some other gluten-free items on the menu like street corn. Love this place and their mango salsa!

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.

Really good, had the veggie bowl. No stomach issues after. I didn't dare eat the chips because they only have one fryer.

I found this at the McCarron airport in Las Vegas. Food is yummy, but limited options. Both chicken and steak are marinated in soy sauce. Great pork tacos.

Staff did not understand what gluten free meant and were not helpful. I tried to eat safe. We will find out later. Do not recommend.

Awesome place! I have celiac disease and am lactose intolerant so it's hard to find options. Many gf choices that are also dairy free. Good tacos

Delicious and naturally gluten free! I had their chicken nachos and they were better than the volcano nachos at Margaritaville, and they were half the price! I could eat here every day

Ate here for years until I found out it is not safe. After hearing rumors and checking their website I decided to write an email. They responded quickly and listed the items containing gluten. Some are obvious but here are the items that surprised me... Steak chicken and rice. They use one fryer for all their items including: rice, chips, taquitos, flautas, totstada shells and breaded fish. The items listed in the email that do not contain gluten are: fish, shrimp, corn tortillas, salad dressings and salsas. I would give it more than a star if they made their information readily available.

Lots of options using corn tortillas- also good for those dairy free too - they got our order right in terms of no dairy. Can't speak to cross contamination but is safe for those with an intolerance - not sure for celiacs.

There are no specific GF Menu, but if you ask the manager, he will tell you what options you have yo eat. Employees also understand about celiac desease and are well informed. I ordered "taco carnitas" without the salsa.

This store was clueless. The cashier said they could leave cheese and spit cream off to make the food GF! Yikes!

I always order the same thing at this restaurant... the pork carnitas tacos baja style with the rice. I have celiac disease and am extremely sensitive to contamination and I've never gotten sick with this meal. I am too chicken to try anything else on the menu though.

Veggie burrito bowls made to order, we were a bit worried since we avoid fast food but in a rush and did not have any reaction. Might work for some gluten sensitive, perhaps more caution as celiac

Gluten free mexican food menu; many choices especially the various bowls, fresh ingredients. Great for a chain restaurant.
