Almost 90% of the menu can be made gluten free, although there is not a separate menu. Server brought out GF tortilla chips (made in dedicated fryer). However I still felt like I got some cross contamination, had a minor stomach ache/minor brain fog. Tacos were tasty, ask for spicy stuff on the side and a side of sour cream if you can't handle spicy food.

Mahi tacos were celiac safe. My Nima sensor agreed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Am delighted to find another place I am welcome.

Got sick!! Warning: Server was *Completely* Unfamiliar with which items are gluten free & said the chips were gluten free - but they were brought out to us before we'd told them we need to be gluten free. Later, we discovered that there is a separate fryer & you must request them to be gluten free. There is NO Gluten Free MENU...so Why does the listing say there is??

Server insisted on giving me a separate bowl of chips, NOT fried in the same oil as the breaded shrimp like everyone else’s chips. Dedicated fryer. GF chips are lighter in color than regular chips. She also insisted on giving me my own bowl of salsa so that I did not have to share the salsa which would be contaminated by everyone else’s regular chips. Nice! She made sure I ordered the black beans - the other beans are cooked in beer. I had never thought of that ... I felt looked after & safe.

We were comfortable from the second we asked the hostess (manager?) for the GF menu. There isn’t one, but she knew exactly which dishes couldn’t be converted to GF because they involved beer. She also made a point to tell us to be sure to tell our waiter so everyone was on board. When our server brought our chips over, we told him we were celiac and he didn’t even put the chips on the table - he told us there’s a separate fryer for GF chips and he’d bring those (we knew about the dedicated fryer from the woman we initially spoke with, so that was awesome and so reassuring that everyone was so knowledgeable.) Food was delicious. Our waiter was Jordan and he said they really take care of people with celiac - gloves, cleaning surfaces, etc. to eliminate cross-contact. Very cool place!

Great service. Very attentive to my dietary needs. No reaction from tacos or chips which are made in a separate fryer.

*The food and service were exceptional. They answered all my dietary questions, all while being personable and knowledgeable. *I had two hard shell tacos with a side of grilled corn. It was delicious. *My husband(non gf diner) had braised beef rib burrito, he loved it. * We also shared a gf caramel flan. It was creamy and delightful. * Would definitely recommend. * It was celiac safe, no side effects.

The staff was very knowledgeable of their gluten free offerings. They have a dedicated fryer for their chips and are accommodating to custom orders. The cheese dip is gluten free which is a hard find too.

This place is amazing. Have missed having Mexican food since diagnosis I was super excited to see such great reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Servers are well-educated about cross contamination and know the menu very well. Everything on the menu, eith the exception of two dishes, are gluten free or can be made gluten free. They have a separate fryer for gluten free chips - just as and they'll bring you your won bowl of goodness. I was super excited to learn that even their queso was gf , most places add flour so I consumed with my fingers crossed. I didn't not get sick and sauted a week to post my review just to be sure. The server even informed me that the meal my husband ordered was not gluten free and that I should not sample it. Definitely an amazing place. Cant wait to go back!

Staff knowledgeable and friendly about celiac. Sometimes they use the devoted GF fryer next door, but don’t have one of their own. Excellent experience.

Most of the menu is GF! The margs use 100% agave tequila and are freaking delicious. Super great spot just ask for them to fry fresh chips for you to avoid any possible cross contamination

If you let them know you are a celiac they will go out of their way to ensure you are safe. We love them.

Staff was knowledgeable and helpful! The tacos were delicious! I had to ask for separate gluten free chips for the salsa, which only took 2 minutes and were great! (I assume a separate fryer because they looked the same!) No stomach hurts! Highly recommend the mahi taco!!

The menu has changed, the marinade for the meat now has gluten. The rice now has gluten. Being both gluten and dairy intolerant it was hard to find something that I wanted to eat that was safe

Accommodating to our child with Celiac. Our child had gluten free quesadilla and the tortilla chips can be made in a separate gluten free fryer. Delicious, fresh food and excellent service.

Best GF Mexican restaurant I've been to! They'll fry their corn chips in a separate fryer if you ask. They can make of a lot of the things on their menu gluten free. I eat here often and haven't ever gotten sick afterwards. Their food is delicious.

During a visit to Scottsdale with my teenage son who has Celiac disease, I called several restaurants to see who could accommodate his needs. Blanco's was the ONLY one willing to fry his tortillas in a separate pan so that he could safely enjoy their salsa & guacamole. Thank you!!!!!

I had the Mahi tacos and steak tacos on a delicious fresh corn tortilla with rice and beans. It was amazing. No dedicated menu but staff was knowledgable with recommendations. Loved it! Finally get to eat a full meal not just a salad!
