One of my favorite places to go and get food in the area. The food tastes amazing and it is affordably priced.

Terrible customer service!!!! I was happy to find a SO-CALLED VEGAN restaurant, but it was too good to be true! I ordered Sope, Elotes, and strawberry tamale. I threw up from the smell of my food. I tried to taste it and it was even worst! The cheese tasted horrible like spoiled or something! The tamale was dry as ever and tasteless! I was sooo mad, because I was at work and couldn't leave to go get something different. When I called all she could do was give me store credit? Why would I want store credit when I'm not ordering from them again!!! I'm so done with them.

Very knowledgeable about gf, veggie and vegan and the menu is filled with options. Gf chips and guacamole are excellent. We made the trip specifically for the veggie mushroom jibarito and it was worth it! Skip the chocolate flan. Friendly staff. We’ll be back.

Not only is the food amazing and creative but they know exactly what gluten is (and dairy) and over half of their items are safe! Gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options available.

Lots of GF options. If you are celiac notify them and they take further precautions. Ask for Kathy, an owner, if you have questions. Kathy has been cooking GF for a celiac since 1986.

Chips and Guac were good. I'm Dairy free and GF. I ordered the steak plantain thing, and asked for no cheese and no mayo, but it was served with cheese anyway. I ate around it. I'm not celiac, and I see they cook everything on the same grill. Oh well.

The food tasted great and staff were very helpful. But I ate chips and guacamole and the pork Jibarito (both clearly marked as gf) and had one of the worst gluten reactions I've had in years! I'd recommend this place as 5 stars for the food and flavor if I wasn't celiac.

Great food and so many options! My husband (who does not have Celiac) raves about their steak tacos. Very friendly staff and nice owner. This is one place I can go and have multiple options and feel safe eating.

This is my first review - Momcorn is that good and lives up to all the good reviews. My 5 year old has celiac and what is really special is that there are lots of options for the whole family.

My boyfriend & I go here whenever we are craving authentic Mexican food that is safe for me to eat! (I have Celiac) I have severe sensitivities and have never once gotten sick eating here! They have dedicated fryers for you if you are gluten free, just tell them before you order! I LOVE the chilaquiles & the tacos. Yum :)

Lots of yummy GF options. This has become a go to place to eat as they are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Be sure to specify that your order is GF. I feel totally safe eating here.

The service was great and the food tasted good but I ordered a GF kids meal only to discover half way through him eating it that it wasn't. I gave my kid antihistamines immediately as he usually breaks out in hives within an hour.

Great little place to eat. I have Celiac and am always looking for a new safe place to go! The owner and I had a conversation she is very knowledgable about cross contamination and yes they have a dedicated fryer!! I had a Puerto Rican sandwich and fries ... Haven't had one of those in many years! YUM!! I will certainly be stopping by again!

Food is excellent! Loved it! Fast service and a great option since not many fast food places have GF options. I would go back for a sit down meal! Great food! So excited to have a local restaurant with so many GF choices! And they taste good!

Amazing!!!! Great America has absolutely nothing to eat if you have gluten and/or dairy allergies. Their loss is Momcorn's gain. They have a super easy to read menu that clearly labels gf options. Their homemade tortillas and guacamole are delicious! The fish tacos and steak fajitas were incredible.

Great gf food and variety. Gluten free does not mean a sacrifice in taste at Momcorn. Also, excellent prices. I always order through Grub Hub for lunch.

Walked in and was greeted immediately. I told the host, Sergio, that I have celiac and he said absolutely not a problem we are here to help you! That felt pretty good! Food was excellent as was the service. I also enjoyed seeing the host interact with the regulars. After paying they thanked us for giving them a try. GF and began clearly labeled on the menu. Great experience.

Traveling from out of town and discovered this as a potential good gf lunch option. I ordered delivery to my hotel room. Not only was the delivery fast, the food was very good. I ordered the gf quesadilla and a cup of the tortilla soup. Next time I'll get two quesadillas and skip the soup! The soup was fine, but the quesadilla was excellent. It left me wanting MORE! And... I didn't get sick. Highly recommend, especially as a lunch option.

This place is amazing. Clear markings on what is gluten free and extra attention to detail for those with Celiac's. The food is absolutely fantastic. I recommend: flautas, fish tacos, tamales and quesadillas. Yep, they make quesadillas on their corn tortillas!

The owner has been cooking GF since 1985. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly, they were so excited to share their authentic Mexican cuisine and GF items. I ordered 1 of everything GF and will be going back. I recommend having the horchada as a refreshing after dinner drink! They offered to clean the cook top etc. specifically for extreme sensitivity. A+++

This fun little restaurant has a treasure trove of gluten free options. Most of the food is made from corn. The cuisine is Mexican/Latin American. The owners are very aware of the needs of gluten free individuals and make additional accommodations if needed.
