    Delish!! I had carnitas that were gluten free and dairy free. Very fresh and great service. My kids and husband enjoyed their food too! Side note- chips and cheese sauce are not gluten free

    Delicious food with plenty of options except not the chips and cheese sauce. The chips are corn but not in a dedicated fryer. I'd say celiac friendly because they were extremely conscientious! I had two people (the hostess and the waiter) ask me about my allergy vs. dietary choice. Ignore the naysayers below.

    So sad a chain only a few streets away from each other could be so different. No dedicated fryer so no chips, no rice either has chicken broth in it. But waiter was very knowledgable so still had a good safe meal.

    Pretty good, but devastated that I couldn't eat the chips. They have a shared fryer. They have a 'wheat free' menu, but not gluten free menu. Not celiac friendly, in my opinion. Server was not knowledgable.

    I've been to Miguel's before I knew I was ceiac, but when I returned (after a few years), I found that this restaurant was awful if you're looking for gluten free options. The only reason I've come in the past is the cheese sauce, which happens to have gluten in it. I found that anything I would have ordered, including the things that you would expect to be gluten free aren't an option. A lot of the sauces include flour. The service was also terrible, while they kept a healthy supply of chips on the table, the waiter totally skipped over me and I wasn't able to order a drink in my group of nine the first time around, and I chose not to eat because I was so disappointed with the service and lack of options, since I could really only eat black beans and chips due to my other allergies. I've never had trouble at any other Mexican restaurant, and I'm very disappointed.

    We visited the location on Shelter Island Ave. The food was great! We were given a GF menu right away. The corn chips are fried in their own fryer so those are safe. We guessed that the white sauce was not GF and later, we found that the menu said so. My son enjoyed the pork carnitas tacos with black beans. I really appreciated their menu. Many places simply have a few options whereas here, there are appetizers and entrees. I didn't ask but I am assuming that the rice is probably not GF as it wasn't on the GF menu. Great place overall!

    Horrible! Asked specifically for GF menu. Waiter came with chips/salsa & a cheese dip. I asked what was in the cheese dip & I was told just cheese. As we looked at the GF menu we munched on chips & cheese dip. Waiter came by & told us the dip wasn't GF. He walked away & came right back to tell us the chips were not GF either. Ugh! We finally settled on GF chicken tacos. What a mistake. Chicken was not marinated or flavored in any way and was beyond bland. The corn tortillas also fell apart. I do not recommend this place if you are GF.

    I'm gluten intolerant, not celiac, and they do have a wide variety of options! Make sure to ask for the gluten free menu, though.
