Very knowledgeable about celiac. However, contrary to what a previous reviewer wrote, the tortilla chips are NOT gluten free as they are fried in the same fryer as everything else. They do have some good selections though

Very knowledgeable with respect to which items were GF. Plantain chips were not but the regular tortilla chips we're GF. Very good food.

These guys were great. The hostess walked me through every option (tethered were a lot). Tons of options. Chips are not GF. No cross contamination that I felt.

Worst dining out experience ever. Served my tacos atop flour tortillas despite telling the server *several* times I have a gluten allergy, emphasizing being Celiac. Took a bite, realized it was NOT corn. Server also promised the chips were safe, turns out they are not. Damage was done---suffered my first full blown reaction in years. Wait staff was not apologetic. 1 star only because the app does not allow 0 stars.

Delicious!! Server was GF knowledgeable, asked if I was celiac or not. Many things can be on corn tortillas. Excellent food!

So, my experience was not that great. I'm celiac and my adult daughter is gluten sensitive and vegetarian. We were NOT offered alternative options on chips or food: we had to fend for ourselves. Initially we were told that the chips were gluten free , but after asking the waitress to triple check she said they were not GF. We ended up eating brussel sprouts (yummy) and tepid and rather sad black bean soup. And, I was glutened. We were so excited entering this restaurant, as we adore chef Aaron Sanchez. We feel very let down.

No gf menu, but our waitress was helpful and explained that accommodations are made catering to gluten free. I got the Caesar salad and they left off all gluten containing ingredients. I have celiac and felt great after the meal!

The food is delicious at Johnny Sanchez, but you have to put a lot of faith in the kitchen to know the intricacies of gluten. There is no GF menu. Most of the meats are marinated and many meals are served with broths, so who really knows. I ordered the Arroz Con Pollo. My waiter came back to the table and told me I needed to select another type of rice other than the type that came with the meal because it was coated in rice flour. I was confused and tried to tell him most rice flour is gluten free, but just changed my order. Maybe the chef thinks anything with the word "flour" means gluten? I didn't feel glutened after eating, but I didn't have a lot of confidence either.

Super knowledgeable and accommodating for gf needs. Waitress was able to walk me through the menu and recommend options or modifications they could make. So helpful and friendly!

Horrible service. Food was mediocre.

Food is great, but the atmosphere is loud and it is difficult to communicate with the wait staff to share celiac needs. It is pretty difficult for a vegetarian gluten free person to get food since most of it is made with meat. They are very accommodating however, and once it come, the food is pretty good.

We took our 2 kids here for lunch. They both have Celiac. As others said, they were willing to make chips in separate oil for them. They enjoyed the steak tacos on corn tortillas. Great option for anyone GF, but especially kids.

Super-friendly, very accommodating & knowledgable, and the food's GREAT! We were in NOLA for a business conference and took my wife (the celiac) to Johnny Sanchez. Nothing on the menu is marked GF, but our waitress said most of it is already GF and nearly everything else (fried stuff) can be modified to be GF. They brought chips and we asked if they had been made in a dedicated fryer. Waitress went to ask chef. Came back with a "no" answer and came with warm corn tortillas as an alternative!

What wonderful service! My waiter,Carlos, was very helpful. I asked about the chips and a shared fryer. They do fry other things on the chip fryer so the cook heated fresh oil in a kettle and fried up some fresh chips just for me. They were delicious and warm when served. I really wanted fish tacos but they came breaded so the cook made some with grilled fish: wonderfully spiced and yummy. Who could ask for more?!?

The staff were amazing with their knowledge about Celiac Disease... One of the servers that was working when we went there has Celiac Disease, so she came over to talk to me even though I wasn't at one of her tables. The food and servicd were exceptional!

This place is awesome for a celiac. My server had celiacs too, and guided me to what I could eat. Super yummy, not lacking in flavors! 2-6 is happy hour aka 5 bucks for two street tacos!! Woot! Check them out!

While the restaurant did not have a separate gluten-free menu, the staff was very knowledgeable and took excellent care of us. We couldn't eat the chips (common fryer), so our waitress quickly offered to bring us warm corn tortillas. The items we ordered for dinner were modified to make sure they were safe for us. Excellent experience here, will definitely come back the next time we are in New Orleans!
