    We had a “gluten found” result on the Nima sensor when ordering the gf burrito. The management was very concerned and suspected a cross contamination issues. They made a new order of chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, beans and rice which all tested “no gluten”. Excellent service!

    I was a little hesitant after reading the reviews of the "original" El Charro in the downtown area, but our experience at this location was fabulous. Menu was well-marked, and staff checked with the kitchen on all questions. Many GF options, and all in our party (3 celiacs) enjoyed and were safe. Would definitely return!

    Fabulous! Great GF items that are clearly marked on the menu with very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Owner is a fellow sufferer and has created a wonderful GF option.

    Chef Carlotta has reengineered many of her award winning recipes to feature rice flour for making enchilada sauce, mole's, salsas and most of her major recipes gluten-free!

    I have celiac disease and I am very sensitive. I had the chicken fajitas and I was fine. I decided not to have corn tortilla chips after reading the reviews about a shared fryer. The server was not very knowledgeable about gluten free and both my husband and I were scared by his lack of knowledge but In the end I was fine and didn’t get sick. The food was okay.

    Our waitress really understood Celiac Disease and what gluten free means. They have a dedicated fryer. Food is clearly marked GF on the menu. Large corn tortillas meant I could finally have a burrito again! Very good Mexican food.

    We had 2 gluten free meals. Beef fajitas and beef flautas were both excellent. They fry all the chips in separate oil. Flautas & chimichangas can also be fried in the gluten free oil. Allowing us to eat some things we usually can’t enjoy.

    I asked about gluten free options and the server didn't know what that meant and had to ask someone. They use a shared fryer and when they brought my food, the server had his thumb on my plate after touching who knows what. I should have just left but I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. First of all, the food wasn't good. Secondly I immediately began having gastric issues and by the time I went home I was in a full blown auto immune attack. Do not go here.

    Very celiac friendly. If they didn't know, they happily investigated, great service. Food was delicious - seriously the best Mexican food I've had in years. Only wished I lived nearby!

    Gluten free chimichangas from a dedicated fryer! Specify that it's for an allergy and they take very good care of you.

    Do not go here if you have Celiac. Waiter, nice guy, but had no idea what I was talking about. The menu has items marked as GF but there was no knowledge or information about cross-contamination or dedicated fryers, grills, etc. I was told chips and salsa are fine because 'chips are just corn' Knew it was time to go when they asked if I wanted corn or flour tortillas.

    Knowledgeable servers & kitchen. We were told the owner has an autoimmune disease & keeps a gluten-free diet & that is why the menu is diverse & clearly marked.The awareness of Celiac Disease & related safe food prep was evident. Highly recommend!!

    Not gluten friendly at all!! The servers had no idea what gf was. They don't have a designated deep fryers. They were calling up the tortilla company and googling up ingredients. Ridiculous! And the food was just okay

    Baffled at the reviews. Food was okay, but they brought my flan with crunchy won ton things on it. When I asked for a new one without them, they just scraped it off and brought the same one back. No one there understood why that wasn't okay.

    This El Charro location is closed. They are opening a gastropub there. The same people own it so there is a possibility that they will have a gluten free menu.

    Best chicken tortillas!!! Amazing Mexican food- corn tortillas are so so. Love the soup though! I go here a lot- flan can be made gluten free but you must not get the stuff on top!
