Before you sit down, make sure to let the server know you have Celiac or a gluten intolerance. The manager meets with any guest that has a food allergy to explain the menu options and answer any questions you may have. Be aware that food you may not expect may contain gluten, such as the red salsa and table tortilla chips that are brought out to you. The tortilla chips are NOT GF as they share a frier, but the manager will tell you his opinion that they'd be safe to eat due to the temperature they are fried in. Many of the items on the menu can be modified to be GF. I had the chicken fajita enchiladas with Verde sauce, which was super delicious. Several days later and I have not experienced any symptoms of gluten contamination so I'd say El Chico is a safe bet. Overall a good dining experience. I'd definitely be back for more.
