The waitstaff is very knowledgeable about Celiac. They have a separate gluten free menu. They have separate chips that are safe. Be sure to ask for the Celiac safe chips. The salsa is delicious. We also had an amazing poblano soup. I didn't love the margaritas, but the food, atmosphere, and staff were great.

I have been eating at Paloma Blanca for years... They are always very considerate regarding my disorder and I have never had a negative issue in regards to cross contamination etc... I frequently get there chicken soup with rice, enchilada Verdes with chicken, gluten free chips and tortillas...

On Quality & Quantity

Separate gluten free menu, and they have gluten free dedicated fryer tostadas available as well. Normal chips are not gluten free but the gluten free chips are just as good. I am sensitive celiac and have eaten at Paloma more times than I could count. Staff has been generally very knowledgeable regarding their menu. Note: Mexican rice and refried beans are NOT gluten free but they have good substitutions.

Ate lunch here, and their gluten free menu is large. I had the chipotle chicken because it came in a cream sauce and that is a rare option when avoiding gluten. They brought warm gluten free chips. I don’t think they were house made but not sure. Although the waiter wasn’t the friendliest in assuring that things were gluten free, it seemed to be such a well established routine there that it felt safe considering the research I did before eating there.

Amazing flavorful gluten free food. Our waitress knew exactly what Celiac Disease was. She brought out the gluten free chips in a white bowl to eat with the salsa. The house margaritas are gluten free and delicious! The guacamole was super fresh and our main meals were downright delicious. I felt completely safe and would definitely recommend this restaurant to someone with or without celiac disease.

They have a dedicated gluten free menu with lots of options. Make sure they bring gluten free chips (warm and so yummy!) and you can eat the salsa that comes to the table. I’ve had their fajitas and the corn tortillas come in a different color (red) container vs the flour ones (Brown). Be vigilant about making sure they understand you’re gluten free. Most servers have been great, but I’ve had a close call twice, so it’s always best to just stay on top of it. Never gotten sick and tasty food! Make a reservation, they’re usually very busy.

Make sure when they offer house chips you ask for them to be GF. Even though I asked for a GF menu they brought gluten corn chips. Very extensive GF menu. Enchiladas were delicious..staff was great.

Had the tableside guacamole, the verde cheese enchiladas, and the gluten free chips were awesome....margaritas are gluten free as well.....a must visit when in San Antonio. The gluten free chips are better than the non gluten free. Sad to say though the queso dip is not gluten free

I have eaten here twice and loved it both times. However, I will say that my experience was different the second time with a different waiter (hence the four stars). The first time (lunch), Ruth was my waitress and she was PHENOMENAL. It was the first time I'd eaten at a restaurant since finding out I have to be GF that I felt like a VIP instead of a burden. The second time (dinner), another waiter served us and while he was friendly and accommodating, he simply was not as knowledgeable about gluten and gluten free items on the menu. I would definitely ask for Ruth, but if she's not available, this is still a great place.

Amazing GF Mexican food! Separate Chips & Salsa, friends said the GF Chips were better than theirs. Enchiladas Verde were flavorful, fresh and hot. Little bit of a wait, but well worth it.

We have eaten here at least 20 times and haven't gotten sick. They have GF corn chips or plantains. Large GF menu. Paleo menu, too. Ceviche is the best I've ever eaten. Ask for Ruth if you go there. She's been the best server so far when it comes to ordering gf.

Cross contamination is an issue here! I was sick before I even walked out of the restaurant. I didn't care for the enchilada sauce.

The atmosphere and outdoor patio was lovely and very friendly service. Gluten free menu and server seemed educated and followed through on communication with the chefs. Chicken enchilada was quite tasty as was the salsa! The tamal was dry and lacked flavor and the gluten free chips were stale and bland. I'd go back for the enchilada or try an entree but I'll take my own chips next time.

What a fabulous restaurant with a huge, dedicated gluten free menu that goes the extra mike to indicate "celiac" safe. The food was incredible, prices reasonable and service impeccable! Moses and Oscar were especially personable. The menu featured favorites like enchiladas and flan but had others like table side guacamole and celiac safe chips and salsa. Great place!!

This was the best restaurant I have eaten ate since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Their celiac menu was amazing! The flavor was perfect, the cost was very reasonable, and the service was excellent. Will eat here again and strongly recommend it to people who need to eat gluten free.
