I was really excited to try it but me and my husband have celiac and we both had a reaction, right after.Not sure if this was because of cross-contamination but I’d say what we ordered wasn’t safe, and the waitress was very nice but not super knowledgeable about gluten free and seemed unsure
We ordered -chips and salsa -ribeye steak -tamale -pozole
Not sure what had it but wanted to share this safety tip.
— Not very
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Waitress seemed knowledgeable regarding celiac. Several gf options marked on menu. Separate frier(I read previous review how they’re next to each other but still thought it was safe enough for me). Had a good meal and didn’t get sick, from a fairly sensitive celiac.
Almost everything can be made gf. Nothing with wheat goes into the fryer so you can eat the chips and crunchy tacos. Both red Chile and green Chile sauces are gf and spicy. Loved our dinner and will go back! I went back 3 days later for the green Chile clam chowder, really tasty!
Absolutely delicious! While the dedicated corn fryer is separate from the gluten containing fryer, they are right next to each other so with the risk of cross contamination the manager advised that I don’t order anything fried. Our waitress showed firm knowledge about celiac disease and assured me (and double checked on her own upon serving it to me) that the mushroom soup is thickened with corn starch. I ordered the veggie tamale and pork adovado combo plate for an entree. Things are clearly marked GF and the mezcal margaritas are perfect. 💚♥
I felt that the staff was celiac aware and there were lots of items I could have including the chips. We were a party of 3 and all of us like hot, but agreed that the heat was a bit much for us. I don’t know if everything is as hot, but each of us had different meals. Since I’ve not had Mexican since my diagnosis a year ago, it was a treat to have it again, but was a little disappointed that the heat overpowered the flavors of the meal.
The menu had almost all GF and vegetarian options. Food was delicious!! Full of flavor and true southwestern cuisine. Delicious!!
Came here for lunch and enjoyed the crispy beef tocos. The staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. I recommend you give this place a try.
Was visiting Santa Fe with relatives and decided to try La Choza. It was packed for a dreary Monday afternoon, which indicated that it must be good! The staff was very accommodating with my celiac questions and concerns. The food was outstanding and was the best meal that I had during my visit to NM!
This is a really popular place in a residential neighborhood, so be prepared for tight parking and an hour long wait for a table at peak times. Service was very good. When I told the server my daughter is Celiac, she said they have a separate fryer for chips and other GF foods. No problems whatsoever, and very good New Mexican food!
Had a fantastic experience here last night (3/16/19). My daughter has celiac and our waitress, Riley, was knowledgeable and said everything was gluten free but the Sopapillas and French bread. Everything was delicious including the margaritas. Would definitely go here again. Went at 530 on a Saturday and had an hour wait. Riley was fantastic!
Best New Mexican food we have had. The menu is well-marked with many delicious GF options. Loved the combination plate with taquitos and enchiladas. Kids enjoyed too. We have celiac and felt safe and completely satisfied.
Great food. I got a veggie tostada with added chicken and a tamale a la carte. Instead of the garlic bread or sopaipilla option I got some blue corn tortillas. They've even got a separate gluten free fryer for chips!
Don't have a gf menu but they know what's gf. Their chips are safe. They have a separate fryer. Had the chicken carne adovado enchilada plate. Very good a little spicy. I'll be back.
Great Posole and chicken adovada. Had that and crispy beef taco and ranchero beans, plus chips and salsa. No issues.
Delicious authentic New Mexican food. They do not have a separate gf menu, but are very accommodating. Ask which chile is gf-- def the carne adovada and the vegetarian green chile. Beans, posole, cheese enchiladas are all very good!
