The tacos that say GF on menu are probably fine. The waitress told me the chips were gluten free and they were not I was sick for two days after eating there

I only like their guac and nachos, and maybe the skirt steak. The rest of their gf is not tasty.

I tried it twice and got very sick both times. I heard very good things about Mago. The first time my food did not taste good and I got sick. I was convinced to give it another try. Big mistake.

Very delicious food and tortilla was so delicious and soft I had to ask to make sure it was GF. Only note: DON'T EAT THEIR DINNER MINTS! I got sick from that. They are the puffed up pillow kind that melt in your mouth. Those are puffed with flour- asked my friend's dad who's a chef.

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
