This place was great! Most of the menu was gluten free, and the server was knowledgeable. The pollo al horno was tasty! I had no reaction and I’d definitely come back here.

El Pollo Horno was fabulous! I'm a celiac and I had no reaction. I would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. The people here are so helpful.

I had the pollo al horno and it was flavorful and tender! The Spanish rice and black beans were amazing! They will heat up a separate pan with oil to fry a truly gluten free plantain. The staff warned it would take a little longer than normal but it really didn’t take too long at all! Service was amazing, food was fantastic. I did Nima test my meal and it came back with a smile.

First time eating Puerto Rican food. Wow! Amazing! My wife and I will be back if we are in the area. We split the rice pudding at the end. We could have had our own but we we’re trying to keep it at a respectable amount.

The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Many menu items can be made GF. Servings were large. Food was good, although a tad salty for my taste. They will cook plantains in a separate pan for you.

When I asked my waitress what I could order from the menu that was gluten free, I was given two options: the Pollo al Horno or a vegetarian dish (I forget the name). I ordered the Pollo al Horno. It was good. I will probably come back for that dish and to try the other vegetarian option. I wouldn’t say this restaurant was particularly gluten free friendly, but it wasn’t particularly unfriendly either. I did not get sick after eating there.

I love it here - they always accommodate our order (plantains cooked in separate pan) although they warn you that it takes longer for GF. We eat here often and I've only felt sick after one visit (super sensitive celiac). I do feel safe sticking to the pollo al horno and beans (low risk of cross contamination).

I've come here twice for the Pollo al Horno - fall off the bone tender chicken. The servers are knowledgeable about G-F and write your order so that the plantains are cooked in a separate pan. I did not get sick eating here.
