We have been coming here for years, and one of very few places my husband loves to eat. Chips are gluten free but fried, so has some cross contamination. For tacos you have to ask for corn shells, they are gluten free. For dairy free ask for no cheese or sour cream. And they do offer vegan options.

Don’t even try. I asked the server for gluten free options and he told me that they do not offer any GF options and could not accommodate me. We walked out.

~Langhorne location~I saw another review for the mixed talavera. I also got the rango sauce, salsa and chips. I took the first few minutes to taste the end of the chip because I’m not sure if they have shared fryers or dedicated fryers. I asked about there being any gluten, they said no and then I asked them to place a gluten *allergy on the order. After 3-4 minutes no reaction to the chip. I tried a whole chip and waited again. No reaction. Tried the rango sauce and no reaction either. So far no reaction to the talavera. Very good. I haven’t been out to eat Mexican in over a year!

Only thing gluten free is the chips. Everything else is mixed when it is prepared. I felt like I insulted them when I asked for gluten free.

This restaurant, although not officially ‘gluten free’ serves almost everything gluten free. Cuban food is pretty much gluten free, just avoid anything fried. All the roast or other food is suitable for Celiacs. We would recommend this for anyone, it absolutely delicious food!

Whenever I go in I order the mixed talavera, eat the cheese dip, guacamole, salsa, and chips and have never had an issue. I always inform them that I have a severe gluten allergy before they put the meal.
