    To be fair, I also have a dairy allergy. I can get the guacamole but not the chips or anything else without getting sick. I prefer Mex on telegraph and maple

    I have eaten here twice over the last year or so, and never had a problem. I have to carefully avoid gluten but am not celiac, and also avoid most dairy (avoid everything but butter or ghee).

    They no longer offer gf menu. I was told by employee that health department made them change menu due to flour in the air causes cross contamination. I've eaten at this and Novi location, I always feel sick and bloated. I do have celiac.

    There were gf symbols on the menu next to gluten free items. Staff was knowledgable and willing to check items (I also have a dairy allergy) and answer questions. Had no problems after eating here. I had guacamole they make at your table with corn chips, as well as a salad with grilled peppers and avocado.

    Gluten free dedicated fryer for chips. Just have to ask them. Never have gotten sick. Just make sure to clarify with them exactly what you are allergic too. Been here a couple of times and most servers are knowledgeable about their gluten free options.

    Many choices, but they messed up nachos. no flavor to the nachos. meat was so overcooked as to have a very off-putting texture. service was lacking as well even when empty. I've enjoyed other locations if this restaurant, but will not go back here.

    They have a main menu and they say they can make 90% of it gluten free. Also they have gluten free tortilla chips from a dedicated fryer and salsa. My girlfriend is a celiac and they were super cautious. The kitchen manager was great. My girlfriend had a steak quesadilla with a corn shell. She was super excited. Great place.

    Awful. We went for lunch with two gluten free adults and a gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, and tomato free child. We told our waiter when we sat down and ordered the table side guacamole so that we could customize based on allergies. He made the first guac with tomatoes and put flour tortillas in both. After we asked for them to be remade because of the gluten contact, all the chips at our table were replaced with non seasoned ones because evidently the seasoning had gluten in it. Their rice and refried beans also contain gluten. Will not be eating there again.

    Prior to the location move the staff was very knowledgeable on gluten free food options. Now it seems that it is more of a place to attract the young party crowd. Food was not that good and the options for gluten free are minimal.

    Many of the items on the menu can be made gluten free, and the menu indicates which items. I've never gotten sick here and the food is very good.

    Dedicated fryer for GF chips. That alone will bring me back. A number of different types of tacos, including some that are not too bad without cheese, as I avoid dairy too. Will definately go back.

    The server we had on our first visit was celiac savy. Care was used in serving the GF plate separated from the gluten plates at the table. After several visits we rate it 5 stars due to great servers but still be careful.

    Sever ensured we got the gluten free chips and provided individual salsa bowls to avoid cross contamination with other diners at our table. GF Quesedillis, were great and a rare treat using excellent corn tortillas.

    Really wanted to like this place since the reviews were so promising. Family of 4 and none of us liked our meal. GF vegetarian version of the cheese quesadilla was horrible. Couldn't even finish it, even the side guacamole was served half browned! We spent $8 on a guacamole and chips appetizer which is clearly marked GF on the menu and it was served with a non GF pita chip sticking out of it! Spent way too much $ with way too many disappointments. We will NOT be giving Rojo's a second chance.

    They were very good at handling a gf diet and there are several menu options. Our server also eats gluten free and that, no doubt, helped. Make sure to ask specifically for the gluten free chips, otherwise they won't be. We will go back.

    My husband has celiacs, so eating out is always a risk. We were in the mood for Mexican food last night and decided to try this restaurant. It was probably the most wonderful dining experience either one if us has ever had! We ordered guacamole to start, and given my hubby's earlier inquiry about gf beer (which unfortunately they don't have) the server informed us our chips would be prepared separately. They were less greasy and very delicious. Dinner was great. He was able to order gf beef enchiladas, which is never an option for him. Food was tasty, warm and spicy (which we loved!). Service was impeccable. They refilled our drinks every time they were half empty, and checked on us just enough that it wasn't annoying. When it was time to refill our chips, they made us a special batch again, without us having to reminder out server. And best if all, this morning he still feels great. Overall, I cannot say enough good things about this place. I am normally not one to even write a review on a restaurant, but our experience was THAT GOOD! Enjoy!!!

    Rochester branch pretended to know all about gluten then proceeded to poison me. Left in the middle of meal. Manager was not very apologetic. More ignorance than accident.
