I’ve had mixed experiences on how seriously the workers will take gluten-free precautions. Some are super on top of it, while others need better training.

The last time I went, the worker acted completely exasperated when I asked for gluten-free, resisted changing her gloves, and was rude to me the rest of time. It made me never want to go back.

They asked me if it was a preference or an allergy and the gentleman changed gloves and washed his hands and followed my food all the way through. The corn tortillas as kept separate from for tortillas.

They will change gloves, make you your own corn tortillas, and let the staff know. Great service! There is also a gluten free/allergen menu online.

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.

One of the best gluten free fast-food places in StG and delicious! Ask them for a corn tortilla and they'll ask if it's for an allergy, change gloves, and then let the entire line know.

They go above and beyond to make everything safe and gluten-free. The only thing with gluten are he flour tortillas so it makes ordering very easy. I love their chips and queso and the raspberry chipotle chicken salad. The flan is to die for!

I had a delicious burger, served on gluten free toast. Dedicated fryer for the fries. There is no dedicated kitchen space (our server warned us in advance) but I had no issues. Lots of gluten free options.

There are some possible chances for cross contamination, but the staff cared enough to pull a new bag of cheese for me and use only one hand for the other topping spoons, being careful not to touch gluten free stuff with that hand. Overall, this place could be scary if the staff weren't so great.

First time ordering from this Costa Vida. Ordered a Baja Bowl. It was a pick up order which I understand is a risk to begin with. I made clear in my online order that I had celiac disease and also put “severe gluten allergy” just so the people who have no idea what Celiac is might get a better idea on how to handle things. When I picked it up I asked again if they understood and if safe practices were followed with my “allergy”. They said yes but looked confused. Unfortunately I did get sick at this location. Still paying for it 2 days later. Im pregnant and was absolutely starving after a 12 hour shift so unfortunately I took the risk. Wish I hadn’t! I’m guessing with a ton of communication and explaining things, they could potentially be a safe place to eat. However, they proved not to be if you mention it and even double check.

Said celiac and she changed her gloves immediately. Always a good sign. Got a bowl. The chips are safe. Decent meal on the road. Small town that is hard to find safe food in. Happy with our stop.
