All of the sauces are gluten free and they have gluten free corn tortillas. You have to specify that you need a gluten free meal, but they are good to wash their hands and change their gloves for you.

I used to never eat Costa Vida ever anywhere because it seemed like all of them made me sick anywhere every time. I don't know if they changed protocols to anything but for the past year or so all locations have done well. I haven't gotten sick and they all taste fantastic. I am not a big fan of the gf tortillas but that is just me. I usually get the salad with no tortillas at all and ask for extra chips/strips. Occasionally I'll eat the nachos as they are gf on their own. So for any of those who were like me and stayed very clear of them I would say give it a shot you may be able to add another eating out option to your small sad list πŸ˜‚ 😝

They change gloves all the way down the line every time I order. They do their best to make sure it’s gluten free. Great salads and quesadillas.

Notes


From their allergen list: We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts--tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer "oceans of gluten-free options" in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla so up...which uses corn strips.

My go to place! Not this particular location, but they are all over. Everyone is well trained and they always are quick to change gloves and not CC. They are o e of the few places I can go that don't act put out about GF.

Placed an online order and specified that I needed gluten free. Picked up my food and left only to find that they had made my food with a wheat tortilla. My receipt shows that the tortilla should be gf and it is noted as allergy. I'm not impressed!

They were knowledgable about GF and changed their gloves before preparing my meal. However, they are a little disorganized and were messing up a few meals... So be careful in that regards.

They have a cross continuation issue as they use the same press for the tortillas and on the line they switch the serving spoons but the fact beans, and meats etc still have issues since the other spoon had touch the flour tortillas the and been put back in the food. Everyone I tried eating here I got sick and now I pass on going there. Their corporate office is more interested in justifying then learning why they are not gluten free for those celiac who are sensitive. Eat at your own risk.

Server was more than happy to accommodate and made sure to ask questions if they were unsure. Decent food for what it is. Almost the entire menu (except flour tortillas and desserts) were gluten free!
