I go here frequently and have never been glutened. They take gluten allergy seriously and do a great job avoiding any sort of cross contamination.

I asked the waitress which taco meats were gluten free (to be made with corn tortillas) She said all are gluten free. She then asked me “wait, which one is gluten?” (red flag) Got shrimp and chorizo tacos. Shrimp came out breaded. I asked her if the breading is gluten free and she asked the kitchen and said no. I asked for it to be remade since it was touching. She took my plate and came back with my same chorizo taco (I could tell it wasn’t remade because I took a bite out of the radish before and it still had my bite mark) and a grilled shrimp taco. It’s not like the restaurant was super busy and they were overwhelmed. I would double check with the wait staff here.

Top five best Mexican places in Philly! I’ve eaten here probably ten times and it’s always SO GOOD. Their chips are safe and I always get their tacos and I’ve never been sick. Priced right and cash only.

Good Mexican food that is naturally gluten free. The only things with gluten are the obvious ones, flour tortilla, breaded shrimp, etc. They have a fryer dedicated for their tortilla chips only. Get some nachos!
