Apparently the only option in this gate area with anything they claim to be gluten free. The Carne asada was supposed to be safe but I was expecting some contamination. I was right. Should have just eaten the snack I brought with me.

Went to the to go pick up window. Wasn’t expecting much and I was right. Asked what was gluten free or for gluten sensitive and got the look—- then the uhh I don’t know let me check. Was left there 10 minutes. She finally came back so I just ordered a salad. Pulled up app and got the mango vinegar dressing. 20 minutes later picked it up . Very underwhelming. I would think in an airport they would give people SOME training . I guess not.

They had a GF menu. It is a subset of the regular restaurant but still had plenty of options. Waitress told me that they do fry the chips in a common fryer. Food was nothing special, but seemed safe if ordered GF.

So we read all the reviews and we’re going to try this place. But the staff seemed confused when we asked about if the chips were safe to eat or not. And didn’t really seem to know anything about celiac disease we decided not to risk it. Since staff was so uncertain

Staff was knowledgeable and accommodating for my celiac needs. I’ve eaten here twice with no issues. The food was fresh and plentiful. Be sure to tell them upfront of your allergies.

The restaurant offers a GF menu, but the servers don't seem to know about it. We got the menu from the hostess, told the waiter we wanted the fish tacos from the gluten free menu, and he proceeded to bring us fish breaded in beer batter. We told him that we wanted the grilled tacos from the GF menu and he said they have grilled fish. We again referred to the GF menu and he said, "I've worked here 7 years. I've never heard of anything grilled."

There is no celiac safe food at On the Border. They have a very limited gluten sensitive menu (with items like guacamole without chips), but their onions are cooked in soy sauce and there is cross contamination with all tortillas.

Probably not too safe for celiacs. They have a “gluten friendly” menu that they print for you from their website or you can view it online. Link: https://s36131.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/OTB-GLUTEN_040121_V1.pdf

Chips would be safe except they also fry the breaded avocado fries in the same fryer ruining the oil. Apparently all other breaded stuff has a separate fryer - weird.

I had a boring salad. I feel fine, but it really wasn’t too fun an experience for me. And the waiter forgot my margarita during the meal and still left it on the bill…

On the Border had great customer service. We ordered takeout. The food unfortunately was bland and cold. The dessert was questionable. My husband and I ended up having bubble guts during a show.

They have a gluten friendly menu, the chips are not gluten free, they do offer a soft corn tortilla and they were very helpful with navigating the menu
