If you are going for gluten free because of a sensitivity, I would give 5 stars but if you have celiac, I wouldn’t recommend. The employees were very kind and even knowledgeable but they said the gluten free empanadas are cooked on the same surface where the regular empanadas are cooked. I was disappointed because they were knowledgeable about celiac and it was awesome they had gluten free dough but ultimately the means of cooking isn’t safe for celiacs.

I really hate give a bad review. I have gone here several times for their gluten free empanadas. Today/ I went to pick up my order and got to my car and saw the receipt said “regular”- I went back and they admitted they gave me regular even though I order gluten free. And then replaced them— but when I got home and unpacked them- only half are stamped GF. So I have to throw them all out. Clearly their quality control has become non-existent. Sad.

We ordered a dozen gluten free empanadas and they were wonderful! Luis told us they take celiac disease very seriously and have separate space for gluten free prep. We were more than happy with the food and service!

The BEST and ONLY place in the area to offer gluten free empanadas. I am from Argentina and grew up eating empanadas, I was so upset when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Having the option to get one of my favorite foods, made me extremely happy! Thank you Makus for making this happen, not just for me, but for all those out there that suffer from the same condition as me! I strongly recommend Makus for your gluten free empanadas! Spinach is my favorite! Luis is extremely helpful and his recommendations are always great and appreciated.

We have ordered a variety of the frozen GF empanadas to bake at home and loved them all! The sauces are so delicious too. Luis was very helpful in explaining how the online ordering works and he delivered to our house which was wonderful. We have placed two orders and will be ordering again soon!

We ordered a dozen of the frozen Gluten-Free empanadas in a variety of fillings. All of them were delicious. We will make sure we have them on hand in our freezer! Luis delivered on-time and with a smile. We will be a repeat customer for certain!

I am celiac and I am really sensitive to gluten, I have tried the gluten free empanadas from Makus and not only they are delicious but also I didn’t had any allergic reaction. as sensitive as I am to gluten, I would totally recommend this place for any person doing a gluten free diet and also people with celiac.
