    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.

    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!!!!

    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!

    Amazing food! They have many gluten free options and dedicated fryers. When we informed the waitress of our allergy,she immediately asked if it was Celiac's or preference. They really known the difference and make sure avoid cross contamination. The food is a bit higher than other places, however it is worth it. They are a more classy restaurant and they food was of great quality and taste.

    We stopped by for dinner during a busy time and were, of course cautious, but, our waiter was knowledgeable and was helpful w/our selections. Being a celiac it was refreshing to have someone who was aware of the concerns. Our meals were good and glad we stopped by and no reactions afterward left us w/an overall good feeling about our stop. Was a great stop for our Mexican food fix. The only thing that would have made the experience better would have been a chips and salsa offering to start.

    Flavorful and safe!! The employees didn't bat an eye at gluten free and even assured us that certain tortillas and chips were made from corn, not gluten. This is delicious AUTHENTIC Mexican food! You have to try their guacamole salsa- it goes from a whole avocado and toppings to an amazing salsa right before your eyes! Even the shy ones with the green salsa in our party were addicted. It was so good that I hope to make a similar recipe at home! Rosa Mexicano is a celiac safe feast!

    Thanks to the other recommendations I took my family to this restaurant while on vacation in PR. Turns out it was a five minute walk from our hotel and it was the best dinner we've had so far. Almost everything on the menu is already gluten free and the staff all seemed knowledgeable as far as gluten allergies/celiac are concerned. I'm just sorry we didn't find this place sooner.

    I was told there was no GF menu, but the staff was knowledgeable (although I did find a GF menu online later!). We ordered the Guacamole en Molcajete, their famous tableside preparation, and it was awesome. I was given corn tortillas and my husband & son were served fried tortillas. I ordered the fajitas for dinner and they were great. The boys enjoyed their dinners as well. Staff was very attentive.

    So.. I'm a food snob. I've traveled a lot. Rome, Anchorage, NYC, the American Southwest... This food may have been the best I've ever had. Top 5 for sure. Michael, our server, was amazing and knowledgeable of being gf. There were maybe 2 things on the regular menu that weren't gf. According to our server, nothing that has gluten goes in the fryer, so the tortilla chips were safe (and super delicious, along with the salsa!!!) The fried plantains were phenomenal and so was everything else. Amazing service, fair prices, outstanding food, and my husband and I (Celiac, and gluten intolerant, respectively) both feel great!!!!
