Celiac friendly

Mexican is generally a safe bet with celiac, but I love Las Fuentes for its large menu and the heavy emphasis on corn vs flour tortillas! The free chips are 100% corn and made in a dedicated fryer, and I always order the cheese enchiladas (always made with corn tortillas). While there’s no separate menu and they won’t understand if you ask about celiac, they’re knowledgeable about which entrees have corn tortillas vs flour, and I think their authenticity is why I trust it way more than those trendy Mexican restaurants that sneak flour into everything. I’ve been here at least 20 times, and I’ve never gotten sick despite being super sensitive. Bonus: the staff here is super friendly and the outdoor seating in the summers is super cute!
