Ate here last night while in town. The food was fabulous! Lots of options for a highly sensitive celiac! My husband had shrimp wrapped in bacon with a cream sauce that was gluten free and I had enchiladas with mushrooms and spinach. Even had left overs for lunch today without any issues! I highly recommend this establishment!

Zero stars. Am here now and started asking waitress questions on how chips are prepared (fried in same oil as other gluten food) as well as gluten status of dips. She had no clue and had to ask. Came back and told me oil is a dedicated frier. Asked to speak with chef and chef said frier is used for other stuff like tortillas. Good thing I asked!! So I am sitting here NOT eating because they don't understand what GF is and I don't want to get sick!

Excellent establishment and no need for a special menu as the normal menu labels what is GF. Chips and salsa at the table are also gf (but not peanut free). Delicious and very tasty.

Great atmosphere, cute place, live music. It's attached to the Metropolis Performing Arts Center. the server was great, he knew what was gluten-free, and knew I couldn't have the chicken tortilla soup. super nice and so many options.

Ordered Tacos w/corn tortillas and freshly prepared guacamole(w/chips) via the Mago website for carryout. Under special instructions, I made a note for each item ordered indicating “celiac disease; gluten allergy.” We also ordered 2 tacos with flour tortillas without any special instructions. Each taco order was packaged separately. No symptoms after eating

GF listed on items on the menu, yummy Mexican food. Seperate GF chips upon ask. Cocktails tequilas mezcal. My celiac fiancé and I got the fajitas GF steak and shrimp and I got chicken. I have other spice allergies and they were super accommodating with salsas and guacamole and our meals. Cook came out and discussed menu with us about cross contamination and such. Great experience. We were trying to go to francescas but they were closed with a realty lock on the door. This was a great surprise next door restaurant

Menu clearly marked with gf options, which were plentiful. Brought out gf chips upon request. Staff seemed knowledgeable. Portions were huge and filling! I had the enchiladas verdes with chicken and they were delicious. Would definitely go back.
