    very specifically asked if the tortilla chips (listed as gluten free on the menu) were fried with other items. Was very clearly told no, it's 100% safe, by the server but here I am with hives and a migraine.

    Awesome. i left feeling ill because of how much I ate. . It was all too good! The mild guacamole, made at the table, was perfect. . Our son had GF taquitos. . He loved the guacamole, rice, and beans. We went back to DC this year and had enchiladas and what the manager referred to as Mexican lasagna (chicken, corn tortillas, and cheese layers). Stuffed ourselves again. Only complaint is that there isn't one in our home town.

    I had a really great experience here. There's a dedicated GF menu with lots of options. I ordered the suizas enchiladas with a glass of sangria and it was delicious. My husband (who can eat all the gluten!) wasn't impressed with his chicken nachos that were a little burnt but he really liked what I ordered. It was a little pricier than what we planned to spend on vacation for lunch but it was definitely worth it for the peace of mind and tasty Mexican food.

    You are treated like a real person here and actually asked if you need a gluten free menu before you sit down! Food is excellent and servers are wonderful!

    Excellent food, extensive GF menu. Enchiladas and fish tacos were excellent, and so was the tableside-prepared guacamole. Very good margaritas and palomas. Absolutely no adverse reaction for my Celiac wife and daughter. Great experience!

    This is my go to Mexican restaurant, the chips are in a dedicated fryer and the staff is very knowledgeable on the menu. The margaritas are delicious too!

    Amazing Mexican food, wow! I'm highly allergic to gluten. They provide designated gluten-free menu and provided great options. Price is reasonable and I enjoyed it very, very much!

    Food was fantastic! Chips were gluten free! I asked a few times and they reassured me they are fried in a separate fryer. I had the fish tacos and they were phenomenal. They have a separate gluten free menu that has many choices on it. If you're in the DC area and looking for a great lunch or dinner, this is a must eat at place! Enjoy!

    I was here about a month ago and I got really sick for 4 days because of this place. However I don't think I asked for a gluten free menu since we went for happy hour, and I thought the corn chips and guacamole would be fine. I am dairy free too so my choices are even more limited. It's because of how sick I got here that I am now very picky where I eat. Maybe down the road I will give this place another chance but not any time soon.

    Fantastic. Servers are always prepared to discuss gluten free options and will go out of their way to make sure the food you are served is gluten free.

    Very accommodating to those with celiac. Made a special batch of chips and was very aware of the need to avoid cross contamination. Food was fantastic!

    Celiac-friendly, with the holy grail of gluten free chips and salsa. A fairly extensive menu is available, and it's basically impossible to leave the restaurant without a full belly! Love the duck and the enchiladas.

    We had an amazing experience. We ate gluten free without fear. Our waiter, Rodger, took the time to speak to the chef and ensure all foods that we ordered were gluten free down to the chips, salsa & guac. Highly recommend for those with Celiac & gluten sensitive issues. Thank you!!!!

    Had a great lunch. I could eat the chips and salsa served to the table and ended up with chicken enchiladas. The waiter didn't seem to bothered or interested by my allergy, but everything was still great.

    My family loved it! It was difficult for me because I have additional food intolerances. They were accommodating but, there was not much for me. The guacamole is awesome and, I wish I would have just ordered more of that.

    Very tasty food, except the guacamole the asked me how spicy and I asked for medium, but it was more like none...plus expensive compared to the cost of ingredients. Crab empanadas are not gluten free!

    Great food, great service! Extensive GF menu, and was marked with stickers to make sure the servers identified it as a special menu. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and talked all about what they do to avoid cross-contamination. The tableside guacamole is a MUST!

    Great menu items! Double check when your order arrives that it was prepared gluten free. On more than one occasion I've had to sen food back because accommodations weren't made or were forgotten eg fried onions on a taco even though I ordered from the GF menu. They are great at taking food back to double check though!
