Called ahead and all of the arepas can be made gluten free. I ordered one of the pernil arepas that normally comes with sweet plantains in it, they noted that those are fried in shared oil so they made mine without the plantains. I felt very safe ordering here and did not feel sick at all. Ordered a Caipirinha to drink and it was authentic and delicious! Definitely will return.

Excellent! One of the best meals I've had. Everything made here is gluten free; the items on the menu that contain gluten are shipped in. Lots of choices of arepas and safe for Celiac!

Great food but be careful when ordering. A lot of their food is naturally GF, but comes with plantains - not fried in a dedicated fryer.
