Our waiter, Joey, was extremely accommodating! He was eager to answer any questions we had, and was very cautious about items that have the potential to be cross-contaminated (like the nachos). This restaurant experience was honestly the best I've had in regards to trying to eat safely. Chips & Salsa are GF, so I had that with chicken fajita meat, rice, and beans. Delicious! I highly recommend eating here.
The 1st meal of our trip. Visited the area for my milestone birthday and spent weeks researching 'safe' places to eat so I did not get sick.
Waitress was clueless. I was very specific on how my meal needed to be ordered and she brushed me off. I hunted down a manager and told him my concerns. He was very helpful, understood the severity of my situation and made sure everything in the kitchen was correct. Obviously he also corrected the waitress because she came back to the table to apologize and said she learned something new of how important it can be for Celiac's.
I had the carnitas with corn tortillas. No beans. The sauce they serve on the side is NOT gluten free as they thicken it was flour. Very good food and I did not get sick but I believe had I not questioned our waitress and hunted down the manager, I would have.
ASK, ASK, ASK! :)
Our waitress was so careful and double checked everything for us. I had a chicken fajita salad it was amazing! My mom had the shrimp bruschetta and that was also amazing! Huge portion sizes. They have six menu items they guarantee are gf. We didn't have a reaction so it was celiac friendly! 😊
We went here because of previous reviews but had a terrible experience!!! The rude staff said the only thing they recommend salads with no meat. Apparently no meat is okay because of the marinade. I would not recommend.
food was great. nachos are gluten-free! my husband loved the flour tortillas. we enjoyed our time. totally recommend Mamacita's.
When I asked the hostess about gluten free options, she referred me to the manager. He followed us to our table & pointed out all the menu items that are gluten free. When the waitress arrived, she said the manager alerted her that I needed gluten free & asked if I had any other menu questions. I ordered chicken fajitas, chips & salsa. When the food arrived, so did the manager, to make sure I got corn tortillas. The food was delicious!
Excellent service and food! No GF menu but manager was very knowledgable and explained what I could eat. He even doubled checked with the kitchen to make sure, and brought out two sauces for me to try for my enchiladas. Very impressed; will go back.
They have a gluten free menu, but other items are gluten free if you talk it out with them.
The chicken fajitas can be made gluten free if you ask them (cooked separately).
The rice and refried beans are also gluten free. I’m not sure why they’re not on the gluten free menu.
The corn tortillas can be gluten free if you ask them to be (they cook them on a safe part of the grill and not the area where the flour tortillas are made).
The chips are NOT gluten free.
Also my meal was enough for TWO people. It was awesome to have enough food for dinner one night and lunch the next.
And I am VERY sensitive to cross contamination and didn’t have any issues.

I was told the chips were in a dedicated fryer.
There was a very small selection. See picture of menu. I had the chicken salad, it was decent, but I’m a food snob, especially Mexican food. The chicken was okay, the lettuce was the shredded stuff you would find on a taco. The chips and salsa were good, the green salad is a weird color green because of the sour cream but the taste was good.
My gluten full family had the beef and cheese enchiladas. Again, we are food snobs so these enchiladas were average. But it seems to be a hit with the locals and the building/decorations are outstanding.

Limited gluten free menu, but... Safe chips! Safe green sauce and salsa! Safe beans and rice! Just make sure to let your server know, of course. I have Celiac and was able to eat here. No side effects so far.
The only items not gluten free on their menu are the burritos and quesadillas, because of the flour tortillas. I have had the enchiladas, tacos, and pupusas with no issues. I also love that their vegetarian options aren't just refried beans. They have quick and friendly service too.
