High risk for celiacs due to cross contamination. Surfaces /comal have flour on them from tortas and flour tortillas. Verified with very kind owners / managers. If only gluten sensitive, prob fine, but hard pass for reactive celiacs.

They don’t advertise it, but La Esquina is near 100% gluten free! I think they rotate tortas in and out of their menu (although I haven’t seen them on the menu lately), but otherwise literally everything is gluten free. The tacos are amaaazing and super flavorful, and I also love the elotes and margaritas. I feel super safe here, and it’s so nice to be able to order anything I want off a huge menu. Pretty decent prices and such good food!


Is ALL the food in this establishment gluten-free?
