Review of El Aguila Mexican Cuisine

1300 Contra Costa Blvd #12, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

Overall Rating


I was able to get a Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Corn-free meal here. I know, going to a Mexican place and not having corn is like going to a Chinese restaurant and not having rice... i think the key was going at a not so busy time which was stupid 4:30/5:00pm on a Saturday. I was explicit with the person taking my order about changing gloves. And I did confirm that their homemade potato chips are cooked in the same fryer as other gluten containing products. So no potato chips for me. I ended up getting a tiger prawn salad - the dish I ordered came on 2 corn tortillas that I substituted for extra lettuce. And I also got an appetizer of cooked cacti with tomatoes and onions and had them leave off the cheese. It was good and I was full afterwards. But I do agree with other reviews - a bit pricey.
