The empanadas and arapas are fried in the same oil as the wheat ones. They are in the proceeds of changing this, but if you are celiac you might want to avoid this "GF" menu.

Loved the corn empanadas! Particularly the chorizo. Lots of choices and no reactions! Plantain chips to start were delicious.

**Addendum to previous post** I saw the other review noting that the empanadas are all fried together and called to double check-it's correct-they are claiming to be gluten free yet do not have a dedicated fryer for g-free options...not okay. Not sure why I didn't have a reaction but I won't be going back to try again. Glad I know now.

The "gluten free" items on the menu are ALL fried in the same fryer as their wheat items, so they are not actually gluten free.

They get two stars because the server was honest about the food being unsafe and got me a salad that was uncontaminated.

My mom and I definitely both had allergic reactions after eating the gluten-free empanadas and arepas here, but the food was so good it was almost worth it!

Awesome gluten free empanadas and arepas made with ground corn flour. Very good food and very nice staff. Super busy but worth it! Take out and delivery are available.
