    Food was spectacular!!! Entire menu is GF. They use Bob's Red Mill flour for the pastel de tres leches. We arrived 10 minutes before opening and there was already a line outside

    The staff was very knowledgeable! Food was excellent. If u can’t tolerate dairy like me, the arepas do have some dairy in them. However they have dairy free options like the empanadas, ceviche, yuca with chorizo, and salad. The empanadas were my favorite.

    The whole menu is corn-based, which is really helpful!

    This place is amazing! My favorite meal while visiting NO. The arepas are to die for. Great margaritas, great service! Everything on the menu is GF.

    This was our 2nd visit. The food is amazing and the menu is 100% gluten free — including the desserts! I had the grilled chicken arepa with a side of chimichuri sauce and a little bit of cheese. My dining companion ate the Cerda, which is a pulled pork dish with fried plantains. The fried yucca is also a great appetizer. When I heard both desserts where gluten free, I had to try both. The tres leches dessert is the most delicious dessert I have ever had and the flan with passion fruit sauce is amazing. I recommend reservations, as the restaurant is small and fills up quickly.

    Another great find in NOLA. The menu is interesting and almost entirely gluten free (except for one dessert). The food is reasonably priced and delicious. Reservations are recommended on the weekends because it is a small restaurant that is very busy.

    let's just start with the fact that everything is gluten free, with the exception of the tres leches. Delicious, different from my norm, and a great atmosphere.

    Everything is gluten free except one of the desserts. Exquisite, balanced flavor! The street corn is something I will always crave now, and the staff is very kind. One of the best Sangrias I've ever tasted. I had the Mechada arepa.

    Wow! This is when I am so thankful for this app! We would never have ventured here without FMGF. This was a great find. I ate waaayyy too much. We had ceviche, the tostones (they fried those up special for me). Then we get to the arepas...I had the machada, I think. It had maduros, pulled beef, mozzarella cheese. It was really good. The mojito was great too. I would put this restaurant on my NOLA rotation. It's that good. Cute little space too.

    Great food. No problems with cross-contamination. Did not ask for a GF menu since the arepas are made with corn only. I react severely to any gluten and have had no problems at all, other than having ate too much. ;)

    Arepas made with corn meal processed in shared facility, which is an issue for our highly sensitive Celiac daughter. Corn appetizer and skewers delicious and GF. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful, as many menu items Celiac safe. Will definitely return. Fried items, including plantains, not safe due to shared fryer.

    The restaurant uses a corn meal that does not guarantee its safety, but since they don't have any flour in the restaurant it is a decent option if small amounts of gluten can tolerated.
