The food is delicious and we did not have any reaction. The chef came out to confirm that their hot sauce is GF when our server wasn’t sure. Overall a great experience!

I had a fantastic experience at El Carnicero. A lot of the menu is gluten free and they have a separate fryer for the chips! After we placed our order the chef/owner came out to reassure me about their protocol for celiac customers and was very welcoming.

They were very knowledgeable about the food and most of it was gluten free. They explained fryers and how everything is made to order and fresh (yes I could eat the chips!). Only problem I had is I also have a dairy allergy and a reaction to avocados. They suggested sub pico de Gallo for the guacamole. But what I really needed was pickled onions or anything pickled! Also ordered a side of black beans and they did not have much flavor (needed garlic, onions, etc).

Table of 6 though and I was only one with diet restrictions and everyone else wants to go back and had the most amazing food (most was gf). So guess I just picked the least flavorful and cheese/guac would help!

All the guacs were gf and looked amazing, that seemed to be a specialty and our table ordered a trio to begin with and loved them. My kids (teenagers) would love this place for the guac!

I really love this place! Lots of gluten-free and vegan options clearly marked on the menu. Amazing margaritas and huge selection of tequilas. Apparently it's by the same people who brought you Momocho.
