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.

The food is fabulous, but I am really bothered with not being able to eat the chips at a Mexican restaurant. To me, that’s half the fun of eating there is enjoying chips and salsa prior to the meal arriving! When we ate there this week, the server told me that since the chips are fried in a shared fryer with the desserts that contain gluten, they are not considered safe for allergy or celiac. :( bummer!

We had to leave because I was told there was nothing 100% gluten free besides a salad. The chips share a fryer with gluten products and the corn tortillas are made and warmed on the same grill surface as flour tortillas. Gluten friendly but not celiac safe

Chips are fried in a contaminated fryer, learned this the very hard way after getting mixed signals from staff. Other than that- queso, rice and beans are all gf
