El Cholo was extremely accommodating! Chips are corn, and they have many corn tortilla options on the menu. They spoke with the kitchen for me about my allergies and brought out GF beans and ensured the meal was entirely GF for me.

We consulted with both the host and the waiter when we arrived. They served my wife’s lunch with corn tortillas. Despite not being able to have the chips and salsa, she still had an excellent lunch with no reaction.

Unsafe restaurant. Meal came with black beans in a fried flour tortilla bowl and the waiter told me it was corn.

This place was incredible!! I saw mixed reviews about the gluten safety so I wasn’t sure. Staff was super knowledgeable and careful. The chef said they recently separated their fryer so one is dedicated to only chips and no cross contamination. So I enjoyed guacamole and chips. So amazing! The fajitas were incredible. Highly recommend

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!
