Staff was knowledgeable. Even set napkins on the counter and put my fork and salsa on the napkin to prevent CC. Food was amazing. Got the Mexican pizza and some tacos and I didn’t get sick.

If I could rate this more than 5 stars, I would. The staff is thoroughly educated in keeping things celiac safe and everything on the menu can be made GF. Even though I live 2 hrs away, we will be making the trip in order to eat here again!

Yesterday was one of those days where another door opened after my Celiac diagnosis. The food was delicious and more importantly I didn’t feel sick or any symptoms. The owner was so kind. She came to our table and offered to and answered any of my questions and I sense personally took care of preparing my food. The staff was great and put me at ease. This place has my highest recommendation and I will be returning any chance I get. El Tipico is a gem for people with celiac and other allergen issues. It was the time I had real Mexican food at a restaurant in 2.5 years. Thank you for being so attentive to my dietary needs. Everyone else at our table raved about the food as well. Looking forward to my leftovers today. 😉 It’s a real treat when for 2 hours dining out you can have the peace, normalcy, and happiness at a restaurant that everyone else takes for granted. Thank you and I will be back! 👍

This place is amazing! They go above and beyond to ensure their food is not just gluten free, but celiac friendly. Everything on the menu, except the flour tortillas, are gluten free. They used to make their own flour tortillas but now order them from an outside company to try and cut down on the cross-contamination risk in their kitchen. They also have separate gluten free fryers and cooking space. They staff are extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. The food is also delicious!

Food was very good. Felt like they knew how to handle cross contamination. Specify that your are celiac and they will take care of you. Only downfall is the waitress forgot to get me a drink until I had to approach her and the other server was a bit dismissive. If back in town I will definitely come back.

Simply the BEST food we have ever put in our mouths. The entire menu is GF (but they do have flour tortillas if someone should want one). The food is fresh, organic and expertly prepared and presented. Yes, the choices are Mexican but don't think of it as your typical Mexican restaurant. Think of it as going to your organic farmer friend's home to embark on an authentic, nutrient rich culinary adventure. You will leave completely satisfied and wholly fed in the true sense of the word. The owner visited our table many times and shared with us as she would have with old friends, making the atmosphere even warmer and more generous. Leaving made us wish we lived closer (we're from Indianapolis), but we will certainly drive 4 hours to dine here again. What a treasure!

The best mexican food I have ever eaten. We have gluten and dairy allergies. The owner called in to make sure we were taken care of, then came in to prepare our food. Such a fabulous business owner and staff!

Friendly, helpful, accommodating to all needs as far as gluten free. I have other dietary restrictions and they were able to accommodate those as well. I have never been here before but felt like I knew the family by the time I left. Great experience, highly recommend.

Staff take extra precautions when you notify them if you're celiac. I've been coming here for over a year, never had an upset tummy. Food is always fresh.

Authentic Mexican food made the old school way. Super delicious organic, grass-fed, non-GMO restaurant that caters to special diets (gluten free, vegan, allergy friendly). I am a celiac. I ordered enchiladas (Chicken with verde and beef tips traditional). The meat was incredibly tender. The sauces were fresh and light. The chips and salsa were wonderful. My husband ordered Tamales and they were also authentic, hand rolled, deliciousness. Everything is made to order from scratch. It does take a little longer to get the food but it is totally worth it! I will be driving to Ohio (from Detroit) from time to time just to get my El Tipico fix!

After spending the day at the Toledo zoo tried to find something gluten-free and we came upon this restaurant. Two thumbs up from me and my son… Everything was amazing and so many choices! Highly recommend for celiacs. They can make anything gluten-free on their menu

Tons of options! The quality is great and I've never gotten sick. They even have dairy free cheese available for some options. There is a long wait, but worth it.

I've eaten here twice now and it's a great organic and gluten free option. Every gluten free option is clearly marked on their menu, along with items that are/can be made vegetarian. Food is good, though it's nothing out of the ordinary as far as Mexican goes.
