Place does have a limited GF menu. Food isn’t the best. Been here twice now. Had the chicken enchiladas the first time. It was OK. Just had the taco salad with chicken. It was OK. Nothing amazing but I can’t expect much from CLT.

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.

Special gluten free menu. Server asked immediately if I had celiac, and explained that the chips weren’t safe, and what all my options were.

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.

The food was good. Staff knowledgeable about Gluten Free. I got the corn tacos with chicken. I drank a gluten free beer as well. (Also had hard cider and spiked seltzer if you are looking for alcohol with your meal). I was happy to find good food while at the airport. I’ve been eating KIND bars all day.

Has a gf menu. So you are safe. Food is totally bland. Service is abominable. Price isn’t great. Better to go to Chick-fil-A.

The enchiladas are not that tasty but good enough for a quick stop thru the main terminal. GF menu had nice choices.

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.

The chicken enchiladas were good tasting but a little dry. Next time I’ll know to order extra queso dip to help it out.

Came here thanks to the reviews here. Got the enchiladas as recommended. Great filling but light meal. Sat at the bar and several gf menus were quickly accessible and the bartender knew what was up. I'd sit at the bar if you want the best service here.

No complaints!

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).

They may have a gluten free menu but the drink was watery, my food was cold and the waiter was a jerk. I’m not picky or demanding, pretty easy going actually but I felt the need to warn u off this place. Bill was $28 for just me - really??? Don’t do it...

They have a separate list for gluten free items. Server was knowledgeable and said do not eat the chips because they fry them with cross-contaminated stuff. Definitely a great choice if you are at the airport!

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.

I thought this would be my go to place after Chilis vacated the airport, not so much. After reading the reviews I tried the tacos (3 different trips) I found myself dreading my meal because the food is that, meh

Not bad and not great. Airport food. Server was knowledgable. I also had the chicken enchiladas and they are very spicy. Couldn't have chips and salsa. Wish restaurants would have more dedicated fryers.

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

Server was somewhat knowledgable - had the chicken enchiladas. They were SO SPICY but yummy. Make sure the sides you order are gluten free.

No gluten free menu like it states on website. Waitress rude and not at all helpful. Starving so I took a chance and ordered what hopefully won't hurt me. First day on vacation so this really sucks

Had a very limited GF menu, but at least they had one! Chicken enchiladas were good and spicy. But only gf side were potato wedges; no rice, no beans.... Thought that odd. Other plus was Angry Orchard Cider.

I decided to try them out as the other reviews were good. Got the chicken soft tacos I corn tortillas. Specifically discussed gluten free. Now I am regretting it. Feeling glutenized. If you have celiac and are very sensitive like me, don't risk it. Go to chili's and get a salad.

got my meal at the to go window. Bonita was very helpful and knowledgeable about gf & suggested a salad & potatoes as the sides since the beans & rice were not gf to go with the chicken enchilada. Nice to feel you got a decent gf meal in the airport.

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.

My waitress was very knowledgable. Limited but good options. I had the shrimp dish (Camarones al Mojo de Ajo). If I get glutened, I'll follow up with another review!

Other options: chicken tacos, chicken Caesar salad.

They have a separate GF menu. (Which is rare for CLT airport.( I ordered the chicken enchiladas. They were real good.

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