    I asked if they could change their gloves before making my dish since I'm a Celiac and they make burritos and sandwiches in the same kitchen. The woman said they could not because they were so busy, but the chef would do the best he can. I did not feel comfortable eating here so I left. If you're going to advertise gluten free, you should be prepared to take all precautions. I've eaten at places with much smaller kitchens and I never get sick because they know how to prepare things separately.

    I found this place accidentally and was so excited to see that it was not only celiac friendly but delicious. This is much better than your usual Mexican place. They use fresh ingredients and have gourmet, unusual combinations and flavors!

    I felt comfortable eating here, the food is good, quick and very reasonably priced. I would reccomend it. I haven't had any problems and I'm pretty sensetive.

    Some of the best mexican food I have ever had! If not the best mexican food! The food is plated so nicely and make sure to talk to one of the owners about your celiac disease or food allergies they will make sure you are taken care of! Most of the menu is gluten free and even dairy free or can easily be made dairy free. Bonus: Dedicated Fryer!

    Knowledgable and very friendly staff. Excellent food, very nicely prepared with great presentation. Lots of GF choices. I had El Aguila cater a small all GF party with many Celiac guests and not one issue reported. One of my favorite restaurants in Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek area. Upscale restaurant food in a taqueria setting.

    This place doesn't take ANY precautions to prevent cross contamination despite answering "everything is gf except the flour tortillas and tortas." Chips are fried in the same oil, flour tortillas are put on the same grill, etc. And they weren't knowledgeable at all. They didn't even realize that this cross-contamination is even a problem despite having "gluten free" written in large letters on the window.

    Food was really tasty but a little overpriced. Plentiful gf options but most of the meat was too spicy for my kids. Loud, busy environment. I will eat here again.

    Out of the way, order at the counter, a little loud, a little pricey but it's my new favorite restaurant. I was overwhelmed by the number of gluten free options. The staff is very sweet. Complete menu is available on the web.
