My waiter was very helpful with my gluten and dairy allergies. He recommended the tacu tacu with a piece of the roasted chicken on top. Being married into a Peruvian family I am so grateful to have my favorite foods. Ask your waiter for options you can have, they are very helpful

Very limited options. This place is know for the chicken, however, that’s about all you can get. The chicken is gluten free, but not the sauce. The salad is gluten free, but not the dressing. I ordered the quarter chicken (leg/thigh) and while the flavor was good, the portion was very small. For sides, it was a salad with no dressing and jasmine rice. There were multiple servers bringing food to our table, so it’s no surprise that the sauce and dressing were included in containers on my plate, so clearly they are not careful with communication of dietary restrictions. I did not get sick, but I’m in no hurry to eat here again.

This was my first restaurant I ate at since the pandemic started and did outdoor dining. There were other people there with dogs and small kids (= noise). Admittedly there are not many options for GF and DF, but server is very knowledgeable and heck, even offered me a drink that wasn't even on the menu! I got Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice) and they just left off the sauce since it wasn't GF/DF). It was still very delicious. Felt good afterwards and would go back even though there aren't many options.

I came here excited for gluten free, but the options were so slim we actually left and went somewhere else so I could have a nice meal.

Celiacs need to communicate with staff. Menu notes lots of gf items, but fryers aren’t dedicated. When the server knew one of our party had celiac, he could offer modifications and was well-versed in what was truly gf.

They do not have a gluten-free menu but there are a lot of of choices that are gluten-free. They also changed up there deserts so there is no gluten-free dessert.

Limón’s marinated rotisserie chicken and accompanying aji amarillo sauce is super delicious. Ate the chicken and sauce many different times with no reaction. The fries are not celiac-safe here, however, so I get rice. My gluten-eating family members also love the empanadas.

It seems they are in the middle of a menu change and no longer have gf on their menu for now. But the server knew options from before and was very helpful and saves the day, as we were ready to walk out when he told us the menu had no gf options listed anymore. The chicken, yucca, rice and salad are gf. Considering that is their specialty, that worked perfectly for us.

Great food. GF items carefully designated on the menu. Most fried stuff is not but I’m guessing it is because they don’t have a designated fryer. They take their allergies seriously!

I’ve eaten at this location three times, including ordering food in bulk to entertain 20 people. Their rotisserie chicken is gluten free and amazing! There are some limitations for celiac disease as they don’t have a dedicated fryer, but there are a number of side dishes that are GF and the seafood paella is gluten free as well. The flan is also gluten free! They do get really busy so I recommend coming here earlier for dinner so you can spend more time talking to the server.
