In addition to celiac I have a life threatening allergy to wheat. Despite explaining this my taco came on a flour tortilla. Unbelievable. Do not recommend.

I asked for corn tortillas instead of chips. Tested the tortillas with my Nima sensor and found gluten. They were thicker than the tortillas they use in their enchiladas. Chips tested safe. Green chicken enchiladas, rice and beans also safe. On my next trip I had carne asada with green beans. Very good.

The cook explained that they throw everything in the same fryers and there is cross contamination for fried things everywhere, but he was nice and understanding about it. 🀷🏻‍♀ disappointing.

Have a lot of gluten free options, but not a lot that are vegetarian. Food was really good! Chris helped our table, and was super awesome because he saved me from eating the glutened chips (they baked us special chips, can’t use the fryer). Pretty good margaritas too!

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!!

We have eaten here many times without getting sick. Great corn tortillas. The chips are fried in the same fryer as flour tortillas so not safe for celiac. 4 stars because we were told of the chips and cross contamination after eating a few.

Place looks like a fun place to hang out- great patio-firepit setup - probably very fun when it's not 100 degrees out. Food was great. Server stephen was very familiar with gf diets. Manager took us to our table and explained the kitchen & gf choices. They make their own corn tortillas - Service was timely & dining areas were very clean. I ordered the signature chicken lupe and was very happy with taste and portion size.

Not the best Mexican restaurant I've experienced but they were pretty knowledgeable with keeping my meals GF. The margarita was delicious which made up for the dry & small portion of pork in my carnitas tacos. It was more like a lettuce taco topped with a few chunks of pork, not pulled pork like typical carnitas.

gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu, and it is all on the same menu, so no awkward moment when you want to order, and the food is excellent!

I’ve been to two locations. While I haven’t gotten sick, I did get very bad information from the wait staff at the 183 location. First my waiter very confidently told me the chips were cooked in a dedicated fryer. Then he told me the enchiladas were definitely GF and prepared on a safe surface. But then the manager came over and told me she has a gluten intolerance and would NOT eat the chips or the enchiladas. In the end I changed my order to be to-go, since it was already in the works, and took it home to eat in case I did get sick. I didn’t, but due to the uncertainty of the staff I will not go back to that location.

The food is incredible. Very tasty. I tried it for the first time a month ago and liked it so much, went back a week later. I don’t remember if the menu was clearly marked with GF next to item. But I did ask the server and he was very knowledgeable and was a big help. However my allergy is mild so a little cross contamination doesn’t make me sick.

BEWARE: tortilla chips are NOT gluten free!!!!!! I ate half a basket before I was told. RIP. I didn’t ask because I’d been to another location and was assured they were fried in their own fryer, so that’s my fault for not asking. When I asked if another item was gluten free my server informed me that the chips were not (too little too late, but again, my fault for not asking — just celiac things).

I told my server I had a gluten sensitivity when my fiance and I sat down. He said the chips shared a fryer with other items, and that's personally not something I've ever had issues with before. I appreciated the warning. The menu does a good job explaining what is/isn't gluten, and my server was great about communicating with the kitchen. Tasted great and had no issues the next day.
