I’ve eaten at Barroco several times and always felt a little off afterwards. They’ve recently changed their menu and no longer note which items are gf, opting instead for a vague claim at the bottom of the menu that “99%” of the menu is gf. I called prior to going to confirm whether the maduros, plantains, and yucca chips were fried in a dedicated fryer (I normally get the Ropa Vieja arepa). The hostess confirmed with the kitchen that these items are cooked in the same fryer as the empanadas, rendering all fried items not safe for celiacs. The food isn’t bad, but I’m sensitive to cross-contamination and am not confident I could identify a safely gf item on the menu as it stands.

I ate at the Borroco at Crocker Park and had a pretty bad reaction. The server knew I was Celiac. I will not eat there again. :( Too risky.

Loved it. Have been there twice now. The staff knows their stuff. Would recommend the pineapple sauce for people who like sweet things, and would recommend the spicy sauce to anyone. This restuarant makes you want to keep eating even when you're full.

Love love love this place. The menu is gluten free (and celiac-safe by default) unless indicated otherwise, and the food is routinely both safe and delicious. Wonderful staff who have seen a lot of me at this point. Not to mention an awesome, fun, homey atmosphere.

Cannot say enough good things! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable and helped us navigate through menu items that were a little foreign to us. The food was delicious. The menu was remarkable - instead of marking gluten free items, or making a separate page or menu for it - the items that have gluten are labeled “Not GF”! 80% of the menu is gluten free. The atmosphere was fun and colorful. Did I mention the food was delicious?

Staff was fantastic, food was amazing, most celiac friendly place I’ve been too in awhile. The only minor critique I’d have is when 85% of the menu is GF friendly it would be nice to have 50% of sauces be GF as well. All in all I still give this place 5 stars for GF (I’d give 6 if it was an option). In general I just thought it was an awesome showcase of Latin American cuisine. Great job all around.

over 70% naturally gluten free. family owned and makes own arepas. Management seemed knowledgeable about allergen protocols as our child is not only celiac, but has life threatening allergies to all nuts, egg, and soy protein. Could offer her a number of options. Normally she would have loved it but she was "in a mood" and extremely tired from a day of sightseeing. On the other hand, my husband and I extremely enjoyed our meals and her leftovers!!! Highly recommend for those who want something a little different! Fun atmosphere, good adult drinks

Yummy! As most have said no gluten free menu but most of food doesn't have gluten! My stomach was happy!! Everything fresh and multilayered flavors! The Yuca fries were awesome. The many homemade sauces fun and varied from ketchupie, garlic, spicy/smokey, pineapple and last but not least green goodness.(my names not there's) The blueberry, strawberry fresh juice was thick, rich and a must try! It was a new cuisine experience that we will definitely come back for many times! Eduardo was helpful and fun!

Very awesome. As soon as i asked about wheat they asked me if I was celiac and walked me through everything. Their fryers are dedicated to gluten-free items and they are very knowledgeable. While they are pricey their food is worth it.

Barroco is my favorite restaurant in Cleveland! They do not have an official GF menu, but that's because almost everything they make is GF. They serve delicious Columbian cuisine and the GF options are endless! The wait staff is GF knowledgeable and the restaurant is beautiful. Great service every time. Been here a million times and always leave full and happy!
