Fantastic food. Traditional Mexican corn tortillas do fall apart on you, which is what they have here as the gf option. Server was incredibly knowledgeable. They do use a shared fryer for the chips, so avoid those.

Just terrible. I ordered veggie tacos on corn tortillas and they were awful. They don’t even bother warming up the tortillas so they fall apart and it’s like they just threw everything on there. Never again. Worst meal ever. Sent it back.

They were very knowledgeable of gluten free… I always struggle to find something in airports. I got the chicken enchiladas with corn tortillas and they were very bland and crumbly.

A 2 1/2 hour layover in the evening brought us to this place. It didn’t look busy at the time but the open tables all had leftover plates and messes on them, suggesting that we had either just missed an extremely busy period or they were extremely understaffed.

It didn’t take long for our waiter to arrive. I asked about the gluten free menu and he asked, “What do you want?” I asked about the chicken tacos with corn tortillas made Mexican style. He never replied and instead wrote it down as taking my order.

My husband ordered the beef tacos and his plate didn’t have any of the pickled red onions for “Mexican style” but mine did. We had asked for waters to drink but they never arrived, and our waiter never came to check on us during our meal. The corn tortillas seemed to have been made fresh that day, but the chicken tasted like it had been made at lunchtime and didn’t have much flavor. My husband said his beef was also gross.

The service was bare minimum and the food was subpar. I imagine that the food could be better if it was made fresh. My tacos cost $17.99 for three (six total tortillas and enough toppings to make that many tacos).

We left full, but not satisfied at all.

They have a limited gluten free menu. I won't pretend it was the greatest meal I ever had, I'd describe it more as adequate. But, airports don't tend to have anywhere with gluten free menus to begin with. If you get it from the to go window it's pretty quick.

I felt fine after my meal.

“Jose Cuervo” does not appear in the name just Tequileria at this location,however, this name is the only option on this app. They have a separate gluten free menu. The chips are not gluten free. I had chicken tacos with toppings. They were very good especially for airport food.

We went for breakfast so only the breakfast and appetizers were available. Wendy, our server, was great! She verified that there was no dedicated fryer so I couldn't eat the chips. I had the barbacoa and huevos with Pico and corn tortillas. One tortilla was so stiff it wouldn't bend and the other was cracked and shredded. I ate the barbacoa, but the eggs were too watery.

I had the chicken enchiladas as well. Asked to sub the corn tortillas for the flour, and the waitress told me the corn tortillas were terrible. I told her I had celiac and didn’t have a choice, and she understood. Quality of food wasn’t great, but I was thankful to be able to eat something other than potato chips in the airport. Did not get sick either.

Tried to find options at four other restaurants first. Was a bit worried because they don’t have a gluten free menu and nothing is marked. I asked the waitress about the chips and she said that they are prefried and then fries again when they arrive. She then asked are you asking due to Celiacs and I said yes and she was like no you can’t have those but the chicken tacos are good to go. So got those and they were super tasty. It’s been an hour and I’m good to go!

I had the chicken enchiladas, it’s the only gf item they have and I didn’t get sick. Beware though, they initially brought the dish out made with flour tortillas and I noticed it and made them double check, they did remake with corn after and I was fine, I could tell they weren’t corn initially.

Apparently this place is now just called Tequileria. They currently have a “limited menu” and couldn’t find their GF menus. My server told me the only GF option she knew of was the chicken enchiladas (same thing prior reviewers mentioned). Maybe my standards were already set pretty low from the prior reviews and there being virtually no other option in the entire airport, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The meat was juicy and flavorful and the green chili was decent. The refried beans and rice weren’t great, but I was happy to have any option after wandering around all of the concourses searching for a GF option. I’ll probably come back here if I’m in the Charlotte airport again because, most likely, I won’t have any other choices. That being said, it wasn’t bad.

Ate here during a layover- essentially every restaurant at the Charlotte airport has questionable reviews but this was most promising.

Our server was very accommodating and confirmed that what I ordered (chicken enchiladas with rice and beans) was completely gluten free. It’s served with a cream sauce, cotija cheese crumbles, a salsa verde, spiced chicken and retried beans on the side. The tortillas were white corn and did not seem cooked - no cross contamination there!

I had no reaction. The food was perfect for an airport meal but not great. Avoided the chips and drank water. Menu does not have GF items marked but they do have options.

Separate GF menu. Got the chicken enchiladas, which were good but the corn tortillas were a little dry. No issues though! Got the ultimate margarita, but the chips arent made in a separate fryer so they're contaminated.

This was actually surprising! Had the taco salad. Which was good on it's own. I added chicken & unfortunately it tasted as if it had been frozen. But, I don't think I could expect too much more from an airport eatery. I'd certainly eat there again.

I safely ate the chicken enchiladas. The service was average, the food was awful, and don’t bother with the queso. It’s cheese powder with a sad attempt at rehydration. If you’re just desperate for a hot lunch without getting glutened (like I was) this will get the job done.

Based on the recommendations I ate here during a layover. I ordered a mexican chopped salad with pork. For an airport, the food was tasty and was a nice portion As others stated, no chips since they are all in a single fryer. I'd rather they take that precaution.

Located in the main terminal. Great atmosphere, good food. I ordered the chicken enchiladas like everyone else here that left reviews. I also had the rice and beans that came with it. I actually was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. I did not feel it was too spicy like other reviewers here. The bartender was ok, however I did ask for a gluten free menu and she basically took 5 seconds to look and gave up. She did tell me the which items were gluten free - which I half-believed, given that she didn’t produce a menu. Ive been glutened too many times to just believe someone’s word! About 20 mins has passed since I’ve eaten and at the moment I feel fine. If I have any reaction to the chicken enchiladas, rice, and beans, I will change my rating and update this. I will be coming back to this place next time I fly in, given how delicious I thought the meal was. I am also going to post a photo of their menu I found on the internet from 2015 (not sure if it’s still the same or not, given I never got to see their gluten free menu).

This restaurant is in the Charlotte,NC airport. We stumbled upon it on our way from B gates to E gates. They have a gluten free menu available. I had the chicken enchiladas w/no sour cream and the salsa on the side and I was pleasantly surprised. The corn tortillas were fresh, the chicken was moist and the rice was fluffy. There is a little spice to the chicken but not too bad. I was very happy to be able to eat. American Airlines had nothing for me on the plane, unlike United, who serves a special gluten free snack box available for purchase.

Better than eating at a cafe for me. The soup was good (I ordered without the pickled onion). The enchiladas, not so much. The salsa leaves much to be desired, but the chips were tasty. I like them salty. Airport food, so it's pricey for what ya get (the chips and salsa were extra), but not too bad considering the locale. As for being celiac friendly, it's a "Mexican" restaurant, so cross contamination is highly anticipated. If you're sensitive, stick to grabbing something bagged at a cafe or newstand

Nice server, who knew about what could be made GF and what couldn't be. They did have a GF menu. Very limited offerings (maybe 5 entrees?), and almost nothing for a GF vegetarian. We are a family of celiacs, and didn't have any cross-contamination issues, but did make me a little nervous. Good if you aren't too picky. Service was pretty fast despite almost every table filled.

I don't think they are trained on contamination. The bar tender who has beer all over his hands is handling food.
