    The wait staff is very knowledgeable. Many GF options. They even have non dairy cheese. I recommend the fajitas with GF tortillas.

    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.

    The food was delicious and the servers seemed knowledgeable about being gluten free. Service was slow, but the food was well worth the wait.

    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.

    Food was wonderful, and 95% of the menu is or can be made gluten-free. Service was a little slow, but friendly.

    We called an order in it was very cold we where there in 15min like they told us.It was enchiladas dinners for 3 the woman on the phone acted like she could not understand us but she spoke good English. There was absolutely no reasoning for taste To them that was a waste of $40.00 plus asked for Sauce hot.We got none at all when I was a kid the food was good...They sure have went downhill I will tell all of my friends not to come there taco bell is better and cheaper. Will never eat there again!!!!!!
