Went for dinner with friends. So disappointing! The waiter was so dismissive of my questions and almost seemed annoyed when I asked questions regarding celiac friendly menu items. Felt very uncomfortable and forced to just “make up my mind” Also- they say GF but a lot of the items still gets fried/prepared with regular non GF products so then as we all know- NOT GF!

Chips are not GF because cooked in frier with gluten items. They do have veggie sticks if you want the guacamole. They have other clearly marked items on the menu that are GF. Not a ton of options but options they have are delicious.

I first asked if the chips were GF and my waitress said “They are but do you have an allergy? Because they’re fried with other gluten items.” But they have corn tortillas for tacos and enchiladas. I had the shrimp taco platter (2 tacos, rice, and beans) which was very good but a little small considering I couldn’t fill up on the chips and guac before. It came out with a sticker marked “Allergy” and they assured me it was prepared safely and I didn’t have a reaction after!

Celiac friendly but the tortilla chips are not gf; some of the staff know this and some don’t. You can get corn tortillas instead of chips and those are safely prepared.

Tacos can be made with hard corn shells, handmade gluten free soft tortillas (that were very good and not brittle), or lettuce cups. Only one appetizer was GF and the chips are NOT GF. Options are a bit limited but there was at least one item in each section of the menu that was GF. Tacos were so good, as was the Flan Classico which is GF. Bartender was open when she wasn’t sure about whether something was GF, and asked the chef promptly, who seemed very knowledgeable. I had an excellent experience.

Great option! GF items clearly marked on the menu, and our server was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Offered me corn tortillas instead of chips to go with the guacamole because she knew that the chips - although GF themselves - could be cross contaminated in the fryer. Had the carnitas tacos which were delicious. Not a hint of a gluten reaction.

Ate here and got violently ill. Got one star because there isn’t an option to post without one. Definitely a thumbs down! The staff pretended to understand and know about celiac disease, but it is clear they were not trained. The chips are NOT gluten free (although they will tell you they are gf) and the lack of knowledge starts there. Stay healthy and safe by eating somewhere else.

I live in Fort Lauderdale and go to the Las Olas location all the time..they have a dedicated fryer but this location does NOT. Just be careful because the waitress told me not all locations are run the same way. My food was delivered by a manager and had an allergy sticker so they are good about preparations- just don't eat the chips if you are celiac :)

Corn tortillas available for tacos and enchiladas. Server knew what he was talking about with gluten free and food came seperate on a plate marked with a gluten free sticker. I had the tacos and they were great!

They do have soft corn tortillas, so that is a plus. I had the pork taco special and it was so salty I couldn't eat it, and I love salt. I ate at the bar, took forever to get my check. I did not get sick.

Server was very knowledgeable - I like when I asked if the hard shell tacos were gluten free and she definitively could answer no, and when I asked about the tortilla chips served with the guacamole she knew that they were. It puts me at ease when the person can answer on their own without having to say, “I don’t know, let me check with the kitchen.” My celiac son loved his beef tacos (at some places the meat is too spicy for his taste) and was generally happy as we had dined at a few other places earlier in our vacation week and he was so disappointed with the lack of options available for him at other restaurants. I’d make Rocco’s a part of our annual trip to Delray!

The chips are fired in a shared fryer but my server said guests are welcome to bring in their own chips if they want the guac. I had carne asada tacos with corn tortilla and was fine. Only wish more things had a gf option! I didn’t get sick.
