Wait staff was very knowledgeable, and the manager stopped by to let us know he was aware of our allergy and the items we ordered would be prepared GF. My daughter had chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, and I had the fish tacos. Food was excellent, but we wished there were more GF options. Would definitely go back.

The waiter was not knowledgeable about gluten free but went into the kitchen to ask the chef about which foods were gluten free and how safely they were prepared. I got the tortilla soup which was delicious!! Their chips are also cooked in a separate fryer. Overall a good experience.

Giving them 3 stars because this place has always been one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the city and what I believe happened was an isolated incident. I noted the fajitas weren’t marked GF so I asked if they could be made GF. Our server originally said no but then came back a few minutes later and said yes the kitchen can modify to be GF. Great, right? So I ordered and when they came out I took 2 bites of the tortilla and realized it was flour (I thought it was white corn). I flagged the server who confirmed they were flour so then I asked why if I ordered the dish to be GF. Her response was that only the chicken was modified to be GF and they come with flour tortillas. I guess I was supposed to specify that I needed corn tortillas. However I thought common sense would prevail here and that would be an automatic modification. So I guess just be extra diligent when ordering. Chips are fried in a dedicated fryer and margaritas are delicious at least.

Very impressed with the wide variety of GF options, including dessert. When we ordered a GF item, the manager came to our table and assured us that our selection was safe to enjoy. Never had that happen before!

I went to this place based on the great reviews (thanks everyone!)

Their menu has changed and many things that we were once GF are no longer. The options for me were limited as I don't eat shrimp and most of the GF dishes were with shrimp. The guacamole was awesome, the service was great, but that was all I had. I could not even eat tacos or fajitas.

Came here after reading FMGF reviews. Upscale Mexican. Best Mexican cuisine ever tasted! Would describe as upscale Mexican. Located in River North area of downtown. Must have 60 + tables, but spacious and can hear yourself talk. Great cocktails (margaritas and Mojitos). Guacamole made from scratch at table- best ever had. More than half of menu is marked as GF friendly. Had a GF Fajita chicken salad w/ black bean, avocado, lime vinaigrette dressing with tortilla strips. Outstanding. Has a kids menu. Would recommend as a date spot and a family friendly place. Can't wait to come back!! Great vibe.

There were only a handful of items on the menu that could be made gluten free, no dedicated menu. Unfortunately most of them contained fish which I’m also allergic to so I had 2 choices. I selected a GF chicken breast with a sauce and black beans. I was sick within an hour. Wouldn’t recommend for celiac.

They had a dedicated fryer for the tortilla chips and the server was very knowledgeable on cross-contamination and ingredients.

I ventured out to this new Mexican restaurant due to reading that they had gluten-free offerings. Upon checking out the menu, they clearly marked the dishes that were gluten-free. I asked the waitress about the tortilla chips and she informed me that they were gluten-free and made with corn. I asked if it was a dedicated fryer for the chips and learned it was!! Made me feel comfortable ordering and had no reaction after eating here. Outside seating, over looking Town Center, is a great view to take in the great food. Highly recommend!
