I love Lupe Tortilla!! I have eaten here numerous times with no issues. I love the chips & bean dip. The chips are safe for those with Celiac Disease. Fajitas are great with corn tortillas. Highly recommend Lupe Tortilla for Tex-Mex!!

Staff was helpful and seemed to understand gluten allergy. Almost everything on the menu is or can be made gluten free, but you'll need to ask your server whether an item is gluten free already or has to be modified. The main thing to look out for are things with flour tortillas and things that are fried (which includes the chips), as they do not have a dedicated frier.

I had the Tex-Mex enchiladas, which did not need to be modified. Great meal, no gluten reaction.

Staff was so knowledgeable on gluten allergy. Their chips are fried in a shared fryer so don’t eat if you are celiac. They went above and beyond to make sure we got the right food and that special care was taken for our food. The head chef came to our table to talk to us and explained the care they take our gluten allergies and answered any questions we had. All of the fajitas are 100% gluten free (the steak was our fav) and they come with corn tortillas. The fajitas were out of this world delicious! They made any special accommodations they could so our kids could get food they wanted - ex. Quesadilla on corn tortillas. We will definitely be back!

Spoke to the chef personally, and she told me that the chips are GF and most things are GF. So, far so good ... The only reason for the 4 stars is I just got home and not sure of the reaction. Time will only tell.

We ordered my son grilled chicken, rice and corn tortillas. It was yummy. They don't have a dedicated fryer, so no chips:(

I specifically told my waiter that I needed my dish (tortilla soup) to be gluten free for a celiac, and he assured me that he would take care of it. Typically they leave out the tortilla strips that have been fried in the same fryer as other food. After I started eating my soup, I realized that it had the contaminated tortilla strips at the bottom. When I started asked questions. It turned out that the waiter had never told the kitchen. The manager came over and profusely apologized, but unfortunately, it was too late at that point. I was sick for several days afterward.

Menu is mostly GF, and anything that HAS gluten is noted. Beef fajitas typically have gluten due to soy sauce in the marinade, but Lupe Tortillas are gluten free-yay! it's a bit pricey but worth is to enjoy beef fajitas and delicious homemade corn tortillas. They will also sub tortillas with large pieces of romaine lettuce to create a "taco" if you request them.

I've never had an issue here. I get green chicken enchiladas and fajitas with corn tortillas. The corn tortillas are the best I've ever had.

Great experience, gluten free prominently marked on the menu, and the wait staff seemed pretty knowledgeable about how to navigate the offerings. Cross contamination occuring in fried items like the chips, they didn't have a separate fryer/prep area. This was clearly communicated, and for those who are okay with that it was a very gluten friendly location.

Awesome Tex-Mex and many Gluten Free options. The regular tortillas are NOT gluten free as they are fried in a shared fryer. However, the will make you baked chips or better yet they will let you bring your own. Queso, Salsa, and all sauces are gluten free. Fajitas were delicious. Cannot wait to have it again.

Let the waiter know I had both gluten AND dairy allergies when we sat down and again when I ordered. I ordered the shrimp tacos with no sauce because it was called “creamy” so I assumed it had dairy in it. He didn’t know but, said he would ask. By the time we got our food, I wasn’t hungry so just took it to-go. Got home and it’s covered in the creamy poblano ranch. Called the restaurant back and talked to the manager. She apologized and said this sauce has both gluten and dairy. So glad I checked before I ate!

They have lots of options on the menu that can be made safe but, you really need to double check with a manager! Also, the labels on the menu just mean it “can” be made safe, so make sure you specify!

Oh my word- the (fluffy) corn tortillas are so good. I had to double check that they weren't flour. We shared the trio fajitas- beef, chicken and shrimp. I honestly didn't even get to the chicken. Shrimp and beef were amazing. The guacamole was great. I read a review about asking for baked chips, but I just brought in some of my own Siete chips. The beans that come as an appetizer were really delicious. Be careful not to fill up on those. 😊 Most of the menu comes gluten free and everything was great.
