    Had gf wrap, they said it was corn. It tastes like flour and wrapped like flour. Corn smell like lime and fall apart right away. Maybe they had corn but that one wasn't. I took two bites, Thank God because I have a terrible stomach ache

    Menu is clearly marked what is gluten free, plus staff is knowledgeable about gluten free options. Chicken for Cuban wrap was a little dry, but overall experience is very nice.

    The gf food was absolutely delicious! I go to Disney all the time and I always eat at bongos...they have several gluten free items and the chef comes out make sure nothing is cross contaminated or things like that.

    While GF notifications point out menu items and the wait staff was willing to check on other allergens for me, I would not recommend Bongos. The mojo pork I ordered was really fatty, and the accompanying side items were less than stellar. I will not be returning, there's better Cuban food elsewhere in Orlando (see: Black Bean Deli).

    Limited selection. But gluten free Paella fed 3 people with left overs.

    Their menu now has a GF designation. Very few options but at least it's obvious what is available for GF eating. Have a very expansive drink menu but I wasn't confident in trying any of them without knowing all ingredients.

    Food, service and GF knowledge all high. Chef comes out to review order.

    They seemed very Celiac aware, good experience. Our 4 year old had rice and black beans that were gluten free. Only reason for 4 stars is no way to know about other gluten free menu items. Recommend overall.

    Excellent GF experience! While they don't have a GF menu, the chef was more than glad to talk to me about the safe items on the menu. I had the roasted chicken with brown rice with black beans and sweet plantains
