Review of Cantina Laredo

508 North State Street, Chicago, IL 60654

Overall Rating


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.
