    I tested the Tortilla Chips with my Nima tester and no gluten was detected. I also ordered the steak fajitas with no sour cream, no cheese and with corn (not flour) tortillas and extra guacamole. The server substituted black beans for refried beans automatically. I felt the server was very accommodating to my allergies and would recommend El Cholo. Just let them know ahead of time specifically what your allergies are. Thanks, El Cholo!

    NOT Celiac safe. Wish it was. Be careful as the fryer isn't dedicated and some sauces contain gluten flour.

    This place is great. No dedicated GF menu, but the chef baked me GF chips and switched out the sauce on my enchiladas to be GF. Great service and very understanding about cross contamination.

    No dedicated gf menu but will accommodate and make modifications. Staff understands and will cater to your requests. Stay away from chips as used in same fryer. But will give you corn tortillas to eat if you mention it.
