All gluten free and a delight! Be prepared for lots of fried food and a bit of a wait (but so worth it in my opinion). The chicken arepas were my favorite. Fun to try tasty new things and not have to worry about cross contact!

Omg. So tasty and even cheap. Everything is GF. They are not fast so plan to have time to wait. They’re also very popular so when we went at 4 PM, they were out of many items.

Super delicious and entirely gluten free. Not super quick so be prepared for that. It's hella worth it though. That commenter that reacts every time should look into other food sensitivities.

Amazing Colombian food! Columbia’s food is typically, naturally all gluten free. And the hostess was so gracious. She even got a table and chairs out for us to sit there by the truck. Yum!!! I have celiac and had no reaction.

NOT CELIAC SAFE from my experience. I've eaten there 3 times and unfortunately reacted every time. The food tastes excellent though. The last time I only ate a beef arepa but still had the same issues.

Normal menu items are 100% gluten free. HOWEVER, they sold me a gluten filled pastry (which is not made there nor typically available) and didn't even mention it was wheat 🌾 Luckily we overheard him tell the next in line that it was before I ate it. Been there 3 times without reaction and will be back again. Great value and yummy food.

Delicious Colombian food prepared in a family-owned truck. Empanadas are amazing with the fresh salsa.

Make sure you get the "pan de yuca" and eat it hot!

This is a Colombian food cart and it is fantastic. Everything is gluten free! It's not very expensive either, nothing is more than $5.
