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.
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!
*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.
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!
I am not only Gluten free, but also dairy, bean, but, iodine, coffee free.. they did a great job accommodating my food restrictions with variety!! Plus. the food was very good quality and tasted great! I highly recommend trying it, they are worth the wait.. :)
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!!
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!!!!!
