I had really high hopes for Mama Roja and am completely disappointed. I knew that they had a gluten free menu because of this app. I asked our waitress for the gluten free menu and she said they didn't have one. She asked her manager to come to our table. He explained that they do have a GF menu and provided me with one. I then ordered the gluten free enchiladas. When the food was brought out I was given gluten. I asked if they could fix it. They did. During this, they completely forgot one of our party's meals and had to send it in again. They made a big deal about his meal being forgotten and he received a free meal but they didn't do much to accommodate my meal. The food was ok, you pretty much pay for the view of the lake. I will not be returning.
Awful experience, bad cross contamination
Great selection of gluten free items. Server was very knowledgable. Enjoyable stress free dinner!!!
We were visiting family, so we gave this app a try with some restaurants during a recent trip. Mama Roja does have a separate gf menu (request it at the hostess' stand), and, as with many Mexican restaurants, quite a few of the options are gluten free. The do NOT have dedicated fryers for gf foods, so even though guacamole, Queso, and other dips are on the gf menu, you'll have to request warm corn tortillas (like you'd get with fajitas), not chips. My son was very upset when we got our food (fish tacos, with grilled shrimp), and it had regular fried fish in the tacos. I grabbed a manager, and he asked 'did you tell the waiter it was gluten free?' Yeah, we had gluten free menus, had asked 4-5 questions about gluten free items, etc. It had been a long wait, and my son was starving. I felt really bad, because he started to cry. If he hadn't taken a look in his taco, he'd have been throwing up all night, guaranteed. They did bring us new plates quickly, and I saw the manager stand by the kitchen window to make sure they were done right and came right to us. They offered to comp us dessert, but... no real gf dessert choices <sigh>. Overall, the restaurant was cool, and the food was good. We watched World Cup matches while we ate. My son is highly gluten sensitive, and he didn't have a single issue, so we know they made things right. I just felt like I had to make a much bigger deal about this than I would at our normal restaurants.
Chips, salsa, queso, guacamole all GF. They have a great menu with lots of choices. I had enchiladas with rice and boracho beans. Large portions- one meal can feed two. My only complaint is the wait...we had to wait an hour, but it's really popular and trendy. It's more expensive than other Mexican restaurants, but worth it for the food.
The GF menu has a wide selection. Street tacos are my fav. Plus their tortilla chips and queso are GF! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff helped me navigate the GF menu.
Has a very nice gluten free menu. Their tortilla chips, queso and all of their salsas are gluten free as well!
