Super delicious tacos and tamales! Tons of gluten-free choices. Tacos and tamales are gluten-free and they can make a gluten-free quesadilla too! The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in answering all of my questions about cross-contamination. They have all gluten-free orders prepared on their own surface separately (the kitchen is visible behind the order counter and the cashier showed it to me!). Highly recommend. Have not tried the other location so can't speak to its cross-contamination practices.
This place was a hidden gem! It was a tiny little store front in a strip mall. I had called ahead and the man who answered the phone assured me they take allergies seriously by cooking for celiacs in a separate area. Menu is marked with gf icons and nearly everything is gluten free, all tacos tamales sides even quesadillas. Fish tacos got a 4 stars only because I have had more flavorful tacos. Security and service got 5+ stars, and the tamale was excellent and got 5 stars in my opinion. My friend who ate the elotes said they were the best she ever had. Definitely worth a visit when you stop in Ann Arbor!
We just moved here from CO and all the Mexican was so bland. So happy to find this place with much more authentic food, as well as an aware staff. As a GF (Celiac) vegetarian, I wasn't sure if I could find something at an authentic place, but they were so helpful, and the food was amazing!
We were SO excited to find this hidden gem today after the U of M game! The food was absolutely delicious & the owner came out to our table personally, multiple times! He made us feel so welcome- we can't wait to go back! He also mentioned that if you have a severe gluten allergy they will even take extra precautions, which I truly appreciated. The best part was that the food was authentic & delicious and this GFMexicanGirl is very picky, but my husband & I were both impressed!
Friendly staff and owner. I ordered the tamales (1 pork, 1 chicken) with rice and black beans and a side of chips and guacamole. There are so many gluten free options and they are very knowledgable about celiac disease and cross contamination. We will be back!
Ate here with no issues. The tamales are divine. Chelas also has a station in the U of M hospital cafeteria that I've eaten at many times. The owners are there and always reassure me of their gf items and their understanding of cross contamination.
Wow,flavorful authentic Mexican food! I have Celiac Diease and am highly reactive - I have had no problems since eating there yesterday. The food was wonderful! Most of the menu is GF and happily - SOY FREE TOO! The best part, the prices were incredibly reasonable and not more expensive because it was GF. It was the best tasting meal I have had out in years. Very family friendly, has an old diner feel, not the romantic date place, but you can order ahead and take it to go. Yum!
