It is rare to find empanadas and fried plantains that are completely gluten-free. You have no worries here because the whole restaurant is 100% gluten-free. Try the green garlic sauce on everything. It's delicious.

We really enjoyed this! Portion sizes we good, taste excellent and and have no complaints. Not sure why a commenter said they were closing in August 2020- because in April 2021, they are open for sure!

Super tasty food. Very allergen friendly menu and online you can find a menu where you can browse according to your allergies or dietary restrictions. Very friendly staff and generally a good atmosphere. I am so happy that we came here :)

It was dedicated gluten free, such good quality that is difficult to find with places that share fryers, grills, etc. It was honestly amazing.

This place is 100% gluten free and delicious. I definitely recommend getting 2 orders of the empenadas and trying the taster of the arepas. This place is a must if you're traveling and don't won't to worry about cross contamination.

All gf so that was a bonus. The Garlic Yuca fries were really good. Definitely would order those again. The cole slaw that came as a side wasn’t that great. I had the crispy chicken arepa which as far as gf fried chicken goes - wow! I’d get just the fried chicken if I could.

Totally delicious, a good value, and 100% gf. I do want to make a strong recommendation: get the chupe soup!! I would’ve eaten five more bowlfuls if I had time. It’s tucked into a corner of the menu but I’ll be thinking about that soup for a long, long time.

As a sensitive celiac it's awesome to eat someplace that's 100% safe. The food is delicious, it's a great value and it's nice to have an entire menu of tasty options. It's the kind of place where you don't notice or miss the gluten because it's all inherently gluten free. Great for families and easy pick up for take out.

Amazing 100% gluten free food! My family wanted to try something new before going to the theater and stopped in here as I have celiac and their 100% gluten free restaurant looked great. I got the pulled pork arepa which was delicious, just the right mix of juicy meat, sauces, and avocado. It does have a little kick to it but the avocado helps. My family enjoyed their beef and chicken arepas as well. For dessert we opted for the yuca beignets which were an absolute delight - definitely a different texture than normal ones since they’re not made with flour, but they had just the right balance of sweetness and savory flavors and were piping hot. The sauce that comes with them is lovely. Would definitely recommend for those following a gluten free diet & everyone who enjoys yummy food!

I have not eaten here myself and was super excited by the menu. The main page of their website says naturally gluten free; however when you click on the allergen menu and check gluten, there is a disclaimer and terms you have to agree to where they say they cannot claim there food is free of gluten, etc. If that is their approach, while I appreciate their honesty, it should be regarded as a place with a gluten free menu and not a designated gluten free facility.

A must! I got the vegan arepa and garlic yucca fries. It was a Kong day at a work conference so I got the food to go to have back at my hotel. I ended you knocking out and not eating the food fresh/hot. I ended up having it for breakfast cold and even under those conditions it was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.
