Went to the have dinner at red iguana 2. Asked if the chips were cooked in a shared fryer. The server asked if it was due to an allergy and I said I was celiac. She said they were safe to eat. They are not made there but the company who they buy them from makes them safely. I had heard they made great moles there, but couldn’t decide, so I asked the server for her choice. Hands down this place probably has ruined Mexican food for me back home. I can’t say how authentic it is but the mole was amazing for me. I was very happy to have had a safe meal before I headed home. They mark items GF on the menu.

Was in town for a business trip, found Red Iguana 2 on this app, decided to try it. Very popular place as constant flow of customers. My waiter, Devon, was very nice and knowledgeable. Asked several questions about menu items, and he was very helpful. Suggested enchilada item (mango sauce that was sweet and a little spicy) on the menu that wasn't marked gf, but he told me how it could be ordered gf. It was a big portion, and very tasty.

Went back for dinner and ordered the traditional taco, they were very good too. Highly recommend, as I didn't get sick either meal.

Kids menu. Regular menu is marked GF, but not the kids menu
Ramon's Famous Fish Tacos. Kind of bland--probably wouldn't get again.

Item are marked on the menu GF and our waiter was knowledgeable about celiac. One warning, they do have two styles of chips here. The chips for salsa are GF and not fried in the restaurant, they get them from a local company. However, our guacamole, which is listed as GF, came out of the kitchen with other chips in it that are fried at the restaurant and would have cross contamination. Fortunately our waiter was at our table when it was delivered and sent it back. Our son is celiac and sensitive to cross contamination. This could have made him sick.

Had the chips and salsa and the chicken tostada. Was really good! Waiter was informative and helpful and made me feel confident to eat here. There were a lot of gf options, so many that it was hard to decide what to order! Waiter brought it out and stated it was the gf meal— that always calms my fears too!

Fun atmosphere, staff was knowledgeable, GF items are marked on the menu. The chips and salsa on your table are gluten free—I double checked to make sure they weren’t fried in the same fryer as gluten items. I really wish I’d gotten something with mole sauce because that’s what they’re famous for. Instead I got Ramon’s Famous Fish Tacos. They were pretty disappointing and lacking flavor, but the rest of my family raved about their food. I’ll have to come back and try something else. Haha, it was also kind of weird that there were signs on the table saying that you had to ask for water because of the severe draught.

We always have an amazing experience at both locations, take out or dine-in. I eat here once every two weeks on average and I have never gotten sick. The food is delicious! And the staff is fantastic. If I ask a question they are not 100% sure about they check and explain in detail the answer. If they tell you it’s gluten free it is, no one here is going to agree if they aren’t sure.

Fast. Delicious. We were seated immediately! The food was steaming hot, arrived only a few minutes after ordering, and was so yummy! Our server Chelsea was kind, informed, friendly, and fast! I have celiac disease and they accommodated so well for my dietary needs! Central location! We sat in the 4 season porch. It was lovely, sunny, bright, and cheerful! Would definitely recommend!

Wait staff knew exactly what I could eat and understood that food fried in a shared fryer is unsafe for Celiacs. Ordered hue is rancheros and it was amazing! They also have killer margaritas and delicious fresh squeezed juices.

The menu is marked for gluten free, but our server was not knowledgeable about gluten. I ordered tacos, which were corn tortillas, but fried in oil and I was sick the whole next day. I would not eat here again.

This location is great. The other one is not. Don’t go there.

I have always had a good experience and knowledgeable wait staff at this location. It is unclear whether the chips are GF since they are ordered from a supplier. The person I contacted could not confirm that the chips are GF, but stated that a common fryer is used for totopos and all other house-made fried items. Please note that the sauce on the traditional enchilada is not gluten free. You’ll need to get a different enchilada sauce.

Excellent moles. They even have a free sampler with all their moles. Careful! 7 of 8 moles are gf, but all were put on the plate. Chips and salsa were good. I ordered a combo plate to try a variety. I really wanted it to be great, but really only "meh". I feel okay but the quality just wasn't there. Guacamole was very smashed and seemed a little oily ?!? I didnt finish bcuz I was full, but not good enough to finish it off. Probably wont be back unless its with a group and I'll try a mole dish.

One of our favorites! There's so much variety for gluten free options and the food is absolutely delicious. Wait is usually around 30 minutes or so and is 100% worth it. My favorites are the traditional chicken tostadas and the enchiladas verdes, but I have literally never had anything here I didn't like.

Excellent food, tons and tons of choices, and incredible service. This place is great. Don't miss it!

Note to self: if you're going for lunch, try to be there around 11:30 because this place is packed by noon and you'll be waiting a while to get in. It's so worth it though.

This is the BEST mexican food I've ever put in my mouth! They have a huge portion of their menu clearly marked with gf. They haven't left anything out, these items are just naturally gluten free. You must try the tacos Don Ramon and the enchiladas with mole Verde. My husband and I love this place! I have never gotten sick and I'm quite sensitive.
