I have safely eaten here twice in the past month. Felix is an amazing server and has been for years. Even before I got celiac disease I would eat here 10 years ago and I am so thankful they offer gluten free items, safely at that. The street tacos are soooo good. Chips and salsa are safe as well.

This place was wonderful. Dedicated fryer so I was able to have the same warm tortilla chips as everyone else. A separate gluten free menu. The waiter was knowledgeable about what ingredients had gluten. It has been a long time since I’ve had Mexican food, and it has always been my favorite type of food so I will definitely go back!

I frequently eat at this location. Manuel's has a separate fryer for their tortilla chips and corn products, just let them know what you are allergic to and they can make accommodations.Their staff is very friendly and most are knowledgeable, check with a manager if you have questions. I believe they do have a GF menu upon request. They prepare a special dish for me, as I have multiple allergies along with the gluten issue. They do not have a separate GF kitchen, but are very careful, I've never become ill after eating here.

This location does not have a dedicated fryer, my husband and I left because the server advised they could not accommodate my gluten & Dairy allergies like the location in Mesa can. I was super bummed.

We were visiting family and my aunt who lives in Arizona got a menu with clearly saying that they had gluten free options. When we arrive d to the restaurant we got a bate and switch and told that they could not control cross contamination and the manager didn’t seem very confident they could provide a gluten free meal. It was very frustrating as we were with a group of 15 people so we had to leave and find a place where my husband could eat.
