Too expensive. Too fu-fu. Very vanilla. Mexican food for people who don’t like Mexican food.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Sophisticated and delicious! Knowledgable servers. GF items marked on menu. Chips from a shared fryer but usually have pre-made supply that are GF. If not, will give you corn tortillas to nosh on. The Chile en Nogada is fantastic and hands down the best item on the menu. You won’t find anything else like it in Denver!
I went here for lunch. I just wanted some enchiladas smothered in sauce. The only thing on the lunch menu that's gluten-free is a ceviche appetizer. They were unwilling to modify anything for me. The waitress seemed clueless and told me I can order anything with stars but those were the dishes that had stars for being raw and undercooked. The Legend said GF stood for gluten free. After some discussion, I was told to order off of the dinner menu since that had more choices that were noted GF but I was not excited about spending $18 for lunch for a plate of food.
This is hands down some of the best mexican food I've ever had. The stuffed poblano pepper and choriqueso (sort of a paste of chorizo and cheese) are fantastic, and as other reviewers have noted this is NOT your average flan - flan is normally something where I can take it or leave it, but theirs is incredible. Also make sure you eat plenty of the house hot salsa.
Servers are generally knowledgeable, just make sure you:
a) specify gluten-free chips, as the house chips are not gf
b) ask about the rice, as sometimes it is gf (not sure what they add to it exactly to make it not gf, but that's what I was told)
Excellent food! Excellent service!! Trevor and Eddie were super fabulous!!! Highly recommend the skinny margarita, the tamale appetizer and guacamole appetizer, the rib eye crepes made with corn tortillas (if you don't mind spicy) and the flan is to die for!!! Will definitely go back!! Best Mexican food I've ever had and they were VERY celiac friendly!!! The head chef's wife is gluten intolerant and was super knowledgable and friendly!!!
Wide selection of gluten free delicious food!! Best Mexican food in Denver!!
Almost everything on the menu it's gluten free,even the mole poblano and mole verde, if requested!!!!
