This is our favorite restaurant! Almost everything is gluten free, the staff are very knowledgeable, they’re kind and the food is delicious! I love the chicken para rayos and chocolate torte! Our kids love this place too!

We have a 12-13 hour travel distance today. We are just a little over halfway to our destination. I find this place on this app. Immediately message them on their fb page to see about dining in and explain we’re traveling, in pajamas and towing. They say come on in! Seat us by a window, so we can watch our tow and dog. The food was AMAZING!!!!! The majority of the menu is gluten free and the few things that aren’t, can be made. You just tell your server that you are gluten free and any other allergies and they will take care of you. This will be a stopping point, when we make the trip back home to visit. Excellent!!

Really enjoyed our meal! The waitress was very friendly and pointed out that an item we we’re interested in was gluten free without us even telling her we were GF. Got the fried avocado for appetizer, fajitas for entree, and the warm chocolate cake for desert. All excellent! The Cuban margarita was great too!

I ordered a chicken salad sandwich and was able to get a gluten free bun for an additional charger was delicious! I also had a fried avocado and sweet potato fries that were cooked in a designated gluten free fryer upon request.

Reasonable prices and many gluten free options.

Virtually everything on the menu is gluten free, those items that are not are marked "NGF" (Not Gluten Free). Dedicated Fryer. My girlfriend and I were just passing through Springfield on a road trip and I found this place on the app. She is gluten intolerant AND pescatarian so our options are generally limited, and it's hard to trust new places to be GF just because they claim to be. The food was wonderful. Thank you to the Find Me Gluten Free app and the users who rate, review, and provide valuable feedback for the gluten free community.

My daughter is celiac and got glutened here. We were sure to let the server know and order something gluten free. I’m not sure if maybe a sauce was not GF or if maybe a pan was shared, hands not washed, etc. They have a great variety and flavors and they definitely tried their best to be celiac friendly. Slow service, but awesome atmosphere. Perhaps not every celiac will be as sensitive as my preschooler.

THANK YOU Katie!

How refreshing to have a server who actually gets it! I will be back just for her. She understands celiac GF and was so confident with the menu I did not even need to read the options. I just told her what I liked and she recommended the perfect dish.

Home run. I am going back tomorrow. Springfield has finally arrived. So grateful for this restaurant.

This was such a good eating experience. The decor of the restaurant is like stepping back in time, very unique. Everything on the menu sounded great, and about 90-95% of it is clearly marked as gluten free. The flavor and quality of the food was amazing. I plan on going back again and again to experience all of the menu options.

This place is fantastic! Fresh, delicious food with great service. Nearly the entire menu is gluten free and they are very willing to make any additional modifications. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. We had a group of 6 with two gf diners and it was such a treat to be able to sample all the different entrees. Be sure to try the yucca fries and fried avocado apps. The warm chocolate cake is wonderful as is the mango sorbet. Can't wait to go back!

Great gluten free offerings, but make doubly sure you get the gluten free bread if you order a sandwich. Waiter forgot I was allergic after much discussion on the topic and verifying that I wanted the gluten free bun, gave me gluten bun anyway. Did not find out until I had eaten most of the burger. Manager gave me my meal for free, apologized profusely. Still got sick though.

If you love Peruvian food, it's wonderful. If you're a bit more adventurous than normal American diet, it's great. If you want a typical American food menu, it's probably not your place. My husband and I really enjoyed it and there are lots of gluten free options (large menu and most of the items are gf. Good, attentive service.

Two things I'd change: The menu is hard to read in low light. And the booth table is very far from seat. Doubling cushions help, but it is still far. Uncomfortable.

AMAZING food, drinks, dessert. Ate there both nights we were in town. We have 2 service animals and they were extremely friendly to all of us. Wahoo dish was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. So many gluten and dairy free options. Most places have gf, but not dairy free too. I would eat here every day if I did not live 4 hours away. Plenty of options for the non gf crowd too, beautiful building, patio, excellent service, would have to say this is one of may favorite restaurants in the US and I travel an extreme amount and I have had food in every major city. Thinking of traveling through and possibly stopping in this area again just for this restaurant. Thanks again for the wonderful service, really priceless:-)

This restaurant offers amazing gluten-free dishes. Joe and Claire and their staff have a great understanding of celiac disease and how important it is for those with celiac to avoid gluten. I have eaten at Cafe Cusco at least a dozen times and have never had any issues. The food is always fresh and delicious, the atmosphere is cozy, and the wait staff is warm and friendly. I love the Black Olive Trout, the Cebiche Tacos, the Arroz con Pollo, the Tamal, the Fritas La Huancaina ... well, everything I've ever tried. It's wonderful to have a place where I can order nearly anything on the menu and never have to worry about spending the night in the bathroom!

This restaurant brought gluten-free eating to new heights. First of all, the menu has asterisks next to the items that are NOT gluten-free. This made it so much easier for us. I had the sweet potato noodle dish and my husband had the shrimp dish, both of which were fantastic! We started off with the fried guacamole. Their Manhattan cocktails were also superb. We ended with the corn pudding which was like apple pie filling. Yum! We highly recommend this restaurant and intend to eat there again the next time we pass through Springfield.
