Never had an issue here. Chips are fried separately

Great gluten free options. Chips are fried separately. I’ve had tacos, burrito bowls, salads and never had an issue!

Staff was very knowledgable and most of the menu could be made gluten free. The chips have their own fryer and queso is gluten free. The tacos typically come with a flour tortilla but that can easily be switched for a corn tortilla! And the burritos can be made into a burrito bowl instead.

Excellent workers! They were very willing to make anything gluten free and were very cautious. They also have a lot of choices to eat!! Can make almost anything gluten free! Highly recommend

I love this place and the fact that the chips are gf is life changing. I will say that twice (once this location and once in Morrisville), my tacos or quesadilla have been brought out on flour tortillas, but thankfully I noticed and they remade both orders. Other than that, lots of gf options!

I ordered a salad with chicken and vegetables and ate the chips after the waiter said they were gluten free. Got a nasty gluten headache after I left the restaurant so I’m assuming there was some cross contamination or the chips weren’t really gluten free.

Good options. Frustrating they aren’t marked but all servers know what is gluten free and what isn’t it.

Definitely adding to our regular rotation. Virtually everything can be made GF, so don't worry that menu doesn't indicate. Great attention to safety. Dedicated fryer for chips. Everyone's meal was delicious.

I am celiac and love eating here! They always take great care with my meals and just about everything on the menu can be made gluten free. Plus, the corn chips are made in a dedicated fryer so are safe to eat! I highly recommend Cantina 18.

I used to consider this a safe place. But today I was there for lunch and twice I had to send my tacos back. First they had fried things in them that weren’t gf. Then they came back with grilled shrimp in flour tortillas instead of corn. Gave up and left hungry. Wait staff and kitchen clearly didn’t communicate or care or both. I stated my issue with gluten and that I had celiac. Really disappointed.

We called Cantina 18 ahead of our visit to ask about their gluten free prep procedures, and were impressed. They have a separate prep area just for gluten free items and spoke very comfortably about keeping things safe. While they don't have a separate gluten free menu, the manager carefully showed us which items were safe on the menu and checked on us multiple times during our lunch. I had beef hard shell tacos while my husband had the steak burrito (served in a bowl without the tortilla). Both dishes were delicious and neither one of us got sick (I'm gluten intolerant, he's wheat intolerant). Their chips are also made in a dedicated fryer. We enjoyed our lunch and will definitely be back!
