Menu is almost entirely GF (except for one dessert). Defaults to GF ingredients for things like tortillas and chips unless specifically requested, uses separate cooking surfaces/fryers for those ingredients. Managers, servers, and cool staff all extremely knowledgeable and take extra steps to clean tables, utensils, and other dining implements, and make sure everyone prepping your food knows the allergen and precautions. Manager checked on us a few times throughout the meal to make sure we were good and ask if we liked the food.

Definitely a great place to go with a crowd if there are just a couple people who are gluten-free. Although I was told by the server that the only thing not gluten-free here are quesadillas because they use flour tortillas. Chips have a dedicated fryer. I had the chicken Tinga tacos which were awesome. And the margaritas are great too! this is a great option in Disney Springs.

Extremely pricey but worth it. All items are gluten free unless otherwise specified (ie kids flour tortillas for cheese quesadillas). Corn tortillas are homemade and absolutely delicious. Host didn’t know much but servers were very knowledgeable about kitchen best practices. She knew celiac, described separate kitchen surfaces and other safety measures. Offered to have chef come speak with us as well. 10/10 experience.

Everytime my family goes there, the kitchen hits it out of the park with amazing food. It is insanely pricy but for a once a year treat…well worth it.

Incredibly delicious food with wonderful service.

Dined here with my young child (celiac; symptomatic to CC) and had a good experience.

The chips are fried in a separate fryer. The waiter knew about celiac and the required safety precautions. The menu was marked with items that are/could be modified to gluten free. My child went with a quesadilla on corn tortillas and had no symptoms following our dining.

So nice to be able to help our child eat safely without making them feel totally left out compared to their siblings!

Loved it!!! Service, environment, and food were amazing!

Interior is beautiful with lots of colorful elements and natural light.

Food was amazing. We had mango guacamole with chips and salsa, vegetable enchiladas, shrimp with salsa de negra, fried plaintains with cheese, flavored iced tea, and a cold brew coffee cocktail. All were amazing!!!

The menu only has 1 item that contains gluten which is the mole chicken. They use corn tortillas instead of wheat tortillas and have a dedicated gluten free fryer. it was a lovely experience eating here!

At least of 4.15.2023 they switched to corn tortillas only, so no wheat tortillas. see photos of the food and beverage

We had a great experience, very sensitive celiac and did not get sick all entrees tested negative for gluten with Nima sensor. They have a dedicated chip fryer so those are safe. I had chips, guacamole and queso which were all good. Queso is served with corn tortillas and is very thick but good. They seem to have another fryer for the other fried items, but I asked specifically about the flautas which were labeled gluten free and I was assured that they would be in a GF fryer, and definitely were per our nima sensor result. Flautas were absolutely amazing! I also ordered chicken tinga tacos, but to me they were a little salty but again safe and good tasting. Flan was available as a dessert option, but they listed a granola on top and I try to avoid Oats as much as I can so I passed. Overall excellent experience our server was so sweet, we would def come back.

The food wasn’t horrible but it was not great either. Overall everyone (GF and not) did not enjoy the meal. Some meals came out cold. For gluten and dairy allergies I had to order plain plain steak on corn tortillas with lettuce. Not much selection, Cantinas were not GF, could not have fried items, chicken was not dairy free. The chips were “safe” but I was weary since they’re fried. Overall, I did not get sick which is good but the food was subpar and I wouldn’t rush back

Fifth year in a row eating here and FIRST time getting sick. I felt awful before my meal was even over. I am so disappointed. My reactions are usually 24-48 hours and we just checked in. NOT worth the risk. I told my server I had the allergy and ordered items that were listed safe. Menu has changed since I was here last year. Wish I would have went to Dlux instead.

Service: 5 stars Celiac-friendliness: 2ish

I ordered the enchiladas suizas and tested with my Nima sensor. it came back with gluten detected. The chef and two of the servers talked to me about it, the chef remade it himself with fresh sauce, etc. The second one came out gluten-free. We discussed why that might be and the chef thinks it might be the cast iron dish they're served in, which is also used for the enchiladas with red sauce, which contains gluten. Now that the chef is aware, this will likely be addressed, but I can't recommend it for celiacs given the positive test.

If you decide to give it a try, ask about how it's served and request a plate if the cast iron is being used.
