Wow 🤩 the flavor of the food here is off the chart!

Wait staff knew exactly what I could and couldn’t eat and are aware of cross contamination.

You can’t eat anything that has the pineapple looking symbol on the menu because it contains gluten.

Get the plantains - these are the BEST ones I’ve eaten to date! Tacos are great, I’m coming back for the stuffed pepper!

Amazing gluten free options. Most of the menu is gluten free. Items with gluten are clearly labeled on the menu. Must eat in McMinnville!

Great, knowledgeable staff. I shared a dish with my mom who has an oregano allergy. They literally custom created a dish we could both eat. No gf fryer though.

This place advertises several things as gluten free. Make sure you ask specifically about each item. They do not have a separate fryer and more than half of the items listed are cross contaminated.

Staff very knowledgable and helpful. Items marked GF on the menu are not always prepared in a safe way, though. They use a shared fryer so I would definitely avoid any fried items. Server came back and helped me change my order after she realized the empanadas were fried.

Very much enjoyed the food here. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable and warned against eating the chips as they are fried in the same oil as the croquettes. Can’t wait to try out their other location Xicha.

Indicates which items are GF on menu, waiter also asked after placing order if any of us had allergies he should know about. Wonderful food!

At 1st glance, this is just a "hole in the wall" eatery. However it came up Gluten Friendly and there weren't many options open at 3:30pm. BUT the food was FANTASTIC! It is South American not to be confused with Mexican. Similar but WAY more nuanced in flavor versus heat in terms of spice. They have PLENTY of GF selections so you don't feel like you are settling when you order. You actually can order from almost everything. The staff was way friendly and the place filled fast. This place could easily become a favorite!

I have celiac disease and I was completely satisfied and safe with the food here. Good portions, delicious food, clearly marked menus and specials, knowledgeable staff, and no ill effects. Not very young-kid friendly and a little chilly, but no complaints because the food was delicious.

Fantastic food, great space. Beware, they have non-celiac safe foods on the GF menu from fryer cross contamination, but most of the staff seems savvy if you tell them you need celiac food. We ate there happily and safely.
