They do not have a gluten free menu. I was offered everything in a flour tortilla and then told they were gluten free.

The person who took my order over the phone was super knowledgeable. One of the items I ordered had changed so that a sauce was no longer gluten free, she suggested a substitution which was very helpful. She also told me the chips are made in a dedicated fryer without having asked.

Absolute favorite! Easiest place to eat gluten free. Clearly marked on menu. Any questions the staff very knowledgable. Not understanding the chip comment I have wheat allergy and its VERY sensitive and they've never bothered me. I'd go here every time

If I could do a 0 star I would. I explained to my waiter Misael that I had a gluten allergy. He said ok your meal is gluten free but then after explaining to me the chips were fried in the same fryer with wheat items my meal came out garnished with chips. I asked for it to be fixed and he did but proceeded to avoid us for the rest of dinner. I have never been treated so poorly for having an allergy.

Please note that the table-side guacamole is listed on the menu as gluten free but the chips are fried in a shared fryer and are not safe for celiacs. I ordered enchiladas and the food came out quickly and was very good with no issues.

The meal was just ok here, GF is not marked on the menu, like the Plaza Azteca location by our home. But the bartender knew what was and was not ( same as Washington PA location, basicallly) However service at bar was lacking, but I did not get sick, so I will give the food an ok. Also if you see my other reviews I have enjoyed other Plaza Azteca locations. I dont think I would be a " regular" like I am in Washington PA.

This is one of my go-to restaurants in town. Their menu has a GF icon to easily spot safe menu items, and there are quite a few. The food is delicious, served quickly, and fairly priced. Table-side guacamole is delicious and the manager frequently makes rounds and is very friends. Love this restaurant and highly recommend!

Absolutely love this place! Food is so delicious! Menu is very clearly marked for GF. Not sure about the other reviews on the chips, but I ate them and had no reaction or problem. They are also marked as GF. Great food and atmosphere! Highly recommend for Mexican!

I didn't feel bad after eating here but I do worry about the possibility of cross-contamination.

I asked if the chips they bring to the table were gluten-free and the server informed me that they fry these chips in the same fryer as other fried items, so avoid these.

I had the lunch portion of beef fajitas (sub corn tortillas) and thought they tasted very good.

Very disappointed that menu items are marked gluten free, then chips and shells are fried in the same fryer as flour tortillas. This is not gluten free! Also offered to substitute corn tortillas and cheese for chips and salsa when we arrived, then charged us for both!

The menu clearly marks GF items and there are ample choices. I had an enchilada plate done with corn tortillas. Some uncertainty about whether the chips they put in the table are fried in mixed company and safe. I did eat them and didn’t have a problem. Fresh guacamole at the table is great. Will go back.

This used to be an amazing restaurant, but things have certainly gone downhill. The quality of food is just not what it was & the risk of cross contamination is high. I wouldn't take a chance if your a celiac, No way to trust your food will come out safe.

Very ignorant and defensive server. Had to talk to a manager to find out that there were shared fryers and that there were mistakes on the menu --items that were listed as gluten free were prepared in the shared fryer.

This place is a new favorite of mine. GF options are clearly marked on the menu, and there are lots and lots of great selections to choose from. It's so nice not to be limited to just 2 or 3 choices. They have a dedicated fryer and the bartender seemed to understand about cross contamination. The food was fresh and flavorful. I highly recommend this place.

Menu items are marked Gluten Free but are cooked in oil with flour items. Chips were brought to the table and said to be Gluten Free, after I asked them to double check they came back and said that chips were also cooked in the same oil as flour items. Waiter did not write down the order, so I was very nervous about the order getting done right. All of this happened during an extremely quiet time with less than 20 people in the restaurant, I would not risk it during a busy night.

I found that the menu, while supposed to be easy to identify GF, had a few hidden items, especially on the lunch menu. The manager was very helpful, though, and I've never been sick in all of the half dozen times I've been there. I really enjoyed the food.

My family attempted to eat here last weekend. My daughter & I both have Celiac Disease. Upon arrival, the appetizer plates on the table were dirty and there was food all over the menus. We tried to confirm the dedicated fryer status, but our waitress had no idea what we were talking about. A minutes later, after explaining that we couldn't eat the chips if they hadn't come from a dedicated fryer, she was suddenly sure that they had.

I gave them 2 stars because the gluten-containing dishes are clearly marked on the menu, so they're trying. Their waitstaff clearly need to be trained on the subject, though. We weren't convinced that we could eat there safely, so we left.

The food was all really salty and overpriced, and the atmosphere was gaudy and overdone. When I told the waitress I had Celiac disease, she must not have been sure what that meant because she asked if I could have butter in something. :(

The corn tortillas are made in a dedicated fryer. So I gave them credit for GF bread/buns above. They don't have a GF menu per se but mark gluten containing items with an asterisk. The manager was very helpful with ingredient allergen questions. We have a 3 year old with multiple food issues. He even brought items out from the kitchen so I could read the ingredients. Service was a little slow and a couple drinks were forgotten but everyone was helpful. We were a group of 10 with 4 GF including the food allergy nightmare 3 year old. We will definitely be back.

Management "gets it" that GF is a Requirement, not just a preference. Menu labelled GF with excellent selection. Kitchen accommodates all special requests including making a dish GF. Not what you'd expect from a chain! Helpful, friendly staff and delicious Mexifood. Try Spinach Chicken enchilada! Drinks coulllllld be stronger but, hey..... nobody's perfect.

I always get the vegetarian fajitas (4 times) and they come with corn tortillas which is great. The only problem I have is that 3 out of 4 times i found pieces of chicken in the fajita vegetables and that really disturbed me.
