What a great find! It's a literal shack--no reservations, but they did have some outdoor seating but makes for great take out. The entire place is gluten free--not hard to do with Mexican food but such a treat as no worries about cross contamination. Even the churros were gluten free, and quite good. We avoided the chorizos due to spicing concerns with a mustard allergy, but there was no mustard in the simpler meats etc. There is fish available and one dish seems to have shrimp as an option (the tamales, which were whole corn and the filling put on the outside, rather than having different filled ones available) but no other shellfish on the menu and we didn't have any issues avoiding/no cross contamination problems. A great treat for a quick stop--there are two locations, we went to the one in Glendale after touring Pasadena.

It was amazing! I had it delivered using grubhub. I ordered the Nashville chicken wrap, the carnitas tacos and the grilled fish tacos. All delicious, all safe, all perfect

There can’t be too many reviews! They knew exactly what celiacs was, how theres dedicated fryers, and the receipt says celiac safe. The menu says what is definitely gluten free and what can be made gluten free. I can’t believe I finally got to eat gf churros !!!!

These tacos are amazing! My favorite are the carnitas and carne asada. They also have gluten free churros! Their taco family meal deal is so much food for the price so we get that a lot. My favorite salsa is the avocado salsa.

Fantastic! The menu is clearly marked what's (GF) and there's lots of choices and options! I had the taquitos and a fish and shrimp taco, all loaded up with big portions, super delicious and I didn't get sick! Whooooo! Really great friendly service and easy ordering process, they do Apple pay and Samsung too, they have their own parking lot too. My new favorite taco place!!

Our family of 4 ate dinner here. 2 Celiac family members and 1 is gluten sensitive. 3 had nachos with steak or chicken with different salsas. I had the beef tacos. Everything was delicious! I wish we had a Hugo’s back home! We followed our meal with the churros. Yum! Haven’t had one in nearly a decade.

Only GF foods go in the fryer! Their GF churros were very sweet, but also delicious — my non GF friends were impressed by them. I had the chicken taquitos and chips/guac as well, which we’re both good. I didn’t feel anxiety about cross contamination, and will definitely return. My friends got glutinous burritos and they served them on a separate tray from the GF foods. Update: tested the churros with my Nima and got a smiley face! Test was inconclusive for taquitos because I overfilled the capsule.

So wonderful! I had a carne asada salad bowl and the bowl was a fluffy yet crispy, delicious, and amazing. The carne was great, too. And of course I had a churro. It was soft and chewy and so good. No reactions at all.

We were warned this one wasn’t as good as the universal location in NoHo. This location had a customer bathroom which I appreciated. My husband ordered and they made my food incorrectly so he had to go back and have them fix it which they did. The food was less flavorful than NoHo. This location had churros but the oil was old making them not taste as good. The food was still good just not as good in comparison to the other store. I loved the dining options Hugo’s offers.

I ordered fish tacos and my husband ordered beef tacos.I did not have any reaction whatsoever so it was definitely gluten-free.However the tacos were very dry and rather tasteless for both of us. So that was rather sad.
