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.

Food was good. I have Celiac and did not have a reaction. I had the verde enchiladas with a side of black beans. They were good, not great. Margaritas were very expensive!

Food was amazing. Gf options were clear on menu. Waiter knew what was safe and what wasn't. Gf tortilla chips are baked and not contaminated. Yay

I eat at the facility in Bolingbrook and they are very aware to give gluten-free chips when told about celiac. I eat here all the time and I am very sensitive to gluten and wheat,but I've never had a problem. Stick to the GF menu and alert the hostess and server.

First the menu has a lot of GF options. Be careful and ask questions. The taco show gluten free but the chef would not recommend them for Celiacs. Had the mushroom enchilada, excellent. Server was very knowledgeable regarding the prep the staff takes to ensure I would not get sick. He went to the chef to ask specific questions I had. I got my own GF chip and salsa dish. Excellent dinner. We will be back.

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!

Stopped here on a date night with hubby. The food was excellent from what we tried. There menu is marked with what is GF. Little hard to see marking at first but it is on there. The place got very loud the busier it got but the food was great. I thought it was a little pricey compared to other Mexican restaurants but they did continue to fill your free chips and salsa and our waitress was very attentive. We will definitely go back to try other options.

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!

We are Celiacs who eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant weekly no joke. It's like 5 mins from the house and every Friday night we get carry out or dine in. Great selection of super tasty Mexican food. Includes GF enchiladas, chips & salsa, fajitas, and at least 10 other really great dishes. We've been eating here for 3 years now and it's awesome. Even great for non-celiacs.

Table was nasty and no one seemed to know what to do about it so they moved us to another table. Gf chips serve desperately but sauces served in divided bowl and could get cross contamination. I felt like it was loosely for gluten intolerance and not celiac a.

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.
