This place is so tasty for both gluten free and non gluten free patrons. The crunchy gluten free shells are delicious! They often have gluten free desserts too. Staff has been very friendly and knowledgeable over the phone whenever we have placed an order. We have been here a few times and I never have had any problems.

I am in LOVE with Carmelita's!!!! Theresa (the Owner) is Celiac and everything in the restaurant is SAFE. The have a few GF items on the menu but they are prepared totally separate. I adore going to a restaurant and being faced with the dilemma of so many choices to pick from.

Food & service were both fantastic! Wait staff was knowledgeable about CD. Great to be able to eat out without worrying about getting sick from cross-contamination! Owner even came to talk to us! Wonderful experience, will definitely be going back!

Carmelita's is hands down the best Mexican food I have eaten in a long time. Everything is delicious and prepared fresh. The salsa has a wonderful, mysterious pepper flavor to it and the guacamole is terrific. I had steak tacos and they were perfectly seasoned, juicy and tangy.

Plus -- the restaurant is entirely gluten free with the exception of flour tortillas, which are stored separately from the rest of the food. The owner, Theresa, has celiac disease and takes extreme care to make her menu safe for "people like us." She sat down and chatted with us for a few minutes about how she trained her kitchen staff about gluten contamination. The fryer is gluten-free, and so the homemade tortilla chips are delicious and FRESH.

It is such a relief to have a restaurant where celiacs can eat freely and without worry! Even if I didn't have celiac, I would be coming back here on a regular basis. Even the wines they serve are gluten-free, and you can get bottled local cider if you want.

Also, get the rice pudding.

New to the CNY food scene, but a continuation of an old favorite. The owner is celiac, you will be safe here! It's a small restaurant in a shopping center, perfect for the weeknight don't wanna cook days. We had a taco salad, enchiladas (not gf), and a house special chicken taco. Taco salad was the least popular, others were very good. Desserts are all gluten free. I plan to try them all eventually. This is a new favorite for us.
